Helinox Chair One Camp Chair
Save $55: Unlike a tent and a sleeping bag, the camp chair is a piece of outdoor furniture that many of us are perfectly okay with leaving behind. For many, the most packable of them aren’t comfortable enough to warrant schlepping up the side of a mountain, and the most comfortable are too cumbersome for any campsite that’s too far from a vehicle. Enter Helinox’s Chair One: it weighs roughly two pounds and packs down smaller than many sleeping bags yet offers elevated seating (so your bum won’t freeze on the ground) and comfortable back support. Helinox achieved this by building the chair with folding aluminum DAC poles that come together just like the ones your tent uses. The seat is nylon and mesh.
With the Chair One, it doesn’t matter where you stand in regard to backcountry seating — if you hate camp chairs, this is the one to turn you; if you love them, here’s your upgrade. It’ll work for camping trips but can also handle outings to the neighborhood park and is perfect for outdoor concerts too. It’s also marked down by 44 percent — that’s $55 off — at Mountain Steals. In addition to the Chair One deal, Mountain Steals is offering discounts on more packable outdoor seating from Helinox; there’s a larger (and smaller) version of the Chair One, a rocking chair, a swivel chair and more. — Tanner Bowden

If you’ve been waiting to purchase a pair of American-made boots, this is a chance to score one of the best for a solid price.

Jenson’s Road and Mountain Bike Sale
Save 45%: Jenson’s, an online bike shop, has its annual sale this week. You can save up to 45 percent on a variety of high-end road, mountain and commuter bikes. If you were waiting for the perfect time to buy a mountain bike (the season’s starting this month) consider this your green light. We’ve picked through a couple of highlights below, but you’ll have to pick through as there are limited sizes in each model. — Meg Lappe
Instant Pot Duo
Save Up to 40%: Today, the Instant Pot Duo, the best model for people who aren’t worried about looks, is one of Amazon’s Deals of the Day.
Starting at $48, the three-, six- and eight-quart models are all marked down to prices that match all-time lows on Amazon. The Duo does everything that made the Instant Pot famous in the first place: pressure cook, slow cook, steam, sautee and a whole pile of presets for specific foods (chili, yogurt, soup and so on). But unlike the newer and more premium Ultra and Max models, it doesn’t have an LCD display or a few more fringe preset cooking modes. If you’re cooking for more than one person, we recommend upgrading to the six-quart Duo. If you’re new to the Instant Pot landscape, let some of our favorite IP-specific recipes be your guide. — Will Price
Jomers Long Sleeve Polos
Save 40%: If you’ve been looking to update your warm-weather wardrobe, you should consider picking up a long sleeve polo shirt from Jomers. Made in Peru, the fabric for this shirt is woven into a pique from Oxford Pima yarn. Then the brand roasts the fabric in an oven, singeing the wispy Oxford fibers to produce an incredibly smooth texture. Available in five colors — sky blue, white, navy, dark blue and burgundy — Jomer’s slim-fit long sleeve polo shirts are now 40 percent off and cost just $18. Sizes are already selling out quickly, so if you want to pick up one (or several) of these for yourself, don’t wait.
