Founded in 2013 by two former Royal Marine commandos, Jöttnar is a small British brand that produces ultra-high quality technical outerwear for climbing and skiing. Every item in its concise line — hardshell and down jackets, mid layer fleeces, hardshell pants, baselayers and hats — is made with the finest materials and manufacturing techniques to endure the harshest conditions. Many of the garments are waterproof, windproof, breathable and warm enough to survive where only Royal Marine commandos would venture. And Jöttnar is currently running a spring sale with 20 percent off sitewide with the discount code SPRING20. There’s no better time to upgrade to some of the world’s top-performing outerwear.
Au Sabot L’Armor Pocket Knife
Save 25%: Au Sabot’s L’Armor pocket knife still has that function at its heart, but it adds an appropriate amount of flair too. The four-inch blade is made of Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel, a well-rounded Swedish steel known for its hardness and toughness (it’s often used to make ice skate blades) and is available with handles made of palo santo, olive or horn. All three are currently available at Huckberry for 25 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Blunt XL Umbrella
Save 40%: We love a good rain jacket but admit that they leave something to be wanted. They’re visibly technical in appearance, sweaty in warm weather and most won’t stop your thighs from getting wet. In towns and cities, we often prefer an umbrella, and our favorites are those made by a New Zealand-based company called Blunt. That’s because it uses a radial tensioning system to keep the fabric taught and blunted spokes that are easy on the eyes (in more than one way).
We like them so much that we stock them in the Gear Patrol Store, but right now, Blunt’s XL-sized umbrella, which the company tested in 72mph winds and weighs under two pounds, is 40% off at Massdrop. If you’d rather save your technical rain jacket for the trail, a sturdy umbrella is your best alternative. — Tanner Bowden
TCL 6 Series 4K TV (2018, 65-inch)
Save $180: March Madness is around the corner and if you’re looking for a 65-inch 4K TV to binge watch all the games, TCL’s 6-Series (2018) is a great one to consider. Not only is it a great 4K TV that supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision, but it’s also one of the few new-ish 65-inch 4K TVs that are under $1,000. In a recent review, CNET‘s David Katzmaier wrote “TCL’s 6 series is the best TV value we’ve ever reviewed.” Amazon just dropped the price of TCL’s 65-inch 6 Series to its lowest price ever. The $1,000 TV is on sale right now for $820 — that’s $180 off. If you’re at all interested in buying a 65-inch 4K TV without having to break the bank, this is as great as ever an opportunity to do just that.
