Timex X Todd Snyder Mod Watch
Save 50%: The “Mod Watch” is a recreation of a vintage model from the 1970s that uses a unique “roulette wheel” dial incorporating concentric 12-hour, 24-hour and 5-minute interval rings in alternating colors. It uses a 40mm steel case, a three-hand quartz movement, a mineral crystal, luminous hands, and a quick-release leather strap, available in several colors. Right now, you can get the Mod Watch in one of two dial colors and in several different strap colors for just $75, a 50% savings off of list price. — Oren Hartov
Save up to 46%:Take warmer spring weather as a call to revisit your summer footwear. Along with lightweight sneakers, you should have a solid pair of sandals for casual wear. If you’re looking to save on a new pair, head over to Nordstrom Rack today. You can currently save up to 46 percent on a range of great styles for summer.

Onnit Semi-Annual Sale
Save 40%: This week you can save up to 40 percent off everything you need to start CrossFit at Onnit.com. From kettlebells to battle ropes to med balls, the semi-annual sale is hard to beat. Onnit has some fun collaborations, in addition to its classic Gorilla Onnit Kettlebells — including Darth Vader-inspired weights and Captain America Barbell plates. Whether you’re looking to deck out your home gym, or get started with your own CrossFit workout, these discounted fitness tools are the place to start. — Meg Lappe
Lululemon Running and Gym Shorts
Save over 30%: Lululemon’s running and gym apparel is some of the best available, and right now it’s up to 30 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Lodge Squared Cast-Iron Skillet
Save $13: Lodge’s classic, dirt cheap cast-iron skillet is one of the best bangs for your buck in kitchendom. But a circular skillet isn’t withou. Because of the shape, only food in the center of the pan takes advantage of its size — meaning foods that are lengthier than others often struggle to fit. From frying bacon to making steaks or asparagus, a consistent width is necessary.
Saturdays NYC Spring Sale
Save up to 60%: If you’re falling behind on updating your warm-weather wardrobe, Saturdays NYC’s heavily-stocked sale section has everything you need to catch up before peak summer comes your way. Choose from staples like swim trunks, tanks, t-shirts and pullovers, and in case you’re still fighting chillier temperatures in the mornings and evenings, there are plenty of sweaters and jackets marked down as well. But we recommend getting on the sale now, not later — common sizes are bound to sell out pretty fast.

Timex Field Watches
Save Up to 50%: Just in time for summer, several of Timex’s field watches are on sale, some of which, like the Mk 1 Aluminum, are based on vintage references from the company’s vast archives. Whether you need a watch for the beach or something with a 12-hour bezel for keeping track of a second time zone, Timex has a summer watch for you. — Oren Hartov
Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Backpack
Save 39%: In 1985 the founder of Mystery Ranch, Dana Gleason, invented a revolutionary internal frame design called ArcFlex that permanently changed how pack makers think about load bearing. But Gleason and co-founder Renee Sippel-Baker hit their stride when Navy SEALs approached them in search of custom packs. Now they craft bags for the military, backcountry firefighters and the US Forest Service, but they haven’t forgotten the everyday outdoorsman.
The Urban Assault pack, which is currently 39 percent off at Huckberry, utilizes the same technical design features that make Mystery Ranch bags suitable for the most rigorous users but it includes features that make it ideal for the urban inhabitant. It’s made with 500-denier Cordura nylon and has a unique three-zipper opening system, two internal accessory pockets, a laptop sleeve and a quick-access lid pouch. It also employs a fixed-harness frame system, which allows the commuter-friendly pack to perform like a high-end expedition backpack. — Tanner Bowden
White Sneakers for Summer
Save up to 50%: If you’re looking to get some fresh new kicks before the summer months, head over to End today. Right now, you can save up to 50 percent on a range of white sneakers from brands like Adidas, Reebok and Vans.

Both the 10- and 20-pound Yes4All cast iron kettlebell sets are on sale on Amazon. Each pair has a painted black finish that will help with grip when you’re pumping out that last thruster and making it easier to hold steady during Farmer Walks. The flat bottom is imperative for put-downs and pick-ups, and the wide handle offers enough space for single and double arm swings, deadlifts, skull crushers, bicep curls and overhead presses. If you’re looking for a way to increase the intensity on your body weight workouts, these two sets of weights are a great place to start. Shop both sales today on Amazon. — Meg Lappe
LG 2018 E8 OLED 4K TV
Save $1,150: If you’re in the market for a really nice 55-inch 4K TV, we’ve got good news: nearly every one of LG’s 2018 OLED TVs is currently on sale. Of course, these deals aren’t totally out of left field. It’s that time of year where all TV manufacturers are gearing up to release their new models, so naturally, the old models are going to come down. But they’re not just on sale — many of them are nearly half off. The best deal is on the LG E8. It’s a high-end OLED TV that costs $2,500 on the company’s website, but it’s currently selling for $1,350 on Newegg.
Rev’It Pilot Jacket
Save 40%: Rev’It made a name for itself in the adventure motorcycle and high-performance spaces in Europe, protecting riders from head o toe with tactical-looking gear. Once they made the jump to the States, they learned low-key, subtle styling and minimal branding is the name of the game. Rev’It didn’t forget its roots, but pieces like the PilotJacket prove the Dutch brand can successfully jump into any space and meet the needs of riders.
The Pilot Jacket takes inspiration from WWII bomber pilots, its outer shell is made from 100 percent buffalo leather and comes with a detachable thermal liner. The Pilot jacket isn’t just some fashion-forward piece of outerwear, either, it’s built to hold CE-rated protective armor at the elbows, shoulders and back. Today, the Rev’It is marked down from $670 to $400. — Bryan Campbell
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24
Save up to 68%: New York-based clothing brand Faherty makes a range of hoodies designed for the beach. Inspired by the Baja poncho, the styles feature relaxed fits and breathable knit fabrics. If you’re looking for a lightweight layer perfect for breezy mornings and cool evenings, these are worth checking out. What’s more, a few different colors are currently up to 68 percent off — act now if you want a deal.
— John Zientek

— John Zientek
Patagonia Micro Puff Jacket
Save $62: Since it came out in the fall of 2017, Patagonia’s Micro Puff Jacket has been our choice for the best synthetic insulated jacket. Simply put, it strikes the perfect balance of warmth and weight (it’s the lightest insulated jacket that Patagonia has made to date). The secret to its innovation is a new type of insulation called PlumaFill that’s made up of down-mimicking polyester fibers that are secured together in one continuous, fluffy line, which zig-zags around beneath its ripstop nylon shell.
The Micro Puff has been such a success that Patagonia used it as the base for the Micro Puff Storm, a waterproof version of the jacket that came out in Fall 2018. Later this year Patagonia will also release the Macro Puff, a heavier and warmer puffy jacket that will use a heartier helping of PlumaFill (and will likely be in as high demand as the Micro Puff).
That Patagonia has released variations of the Micro Puff by no means makes the jacket obsolete. If anything, it’s further verification that it, and it’s fluffy filling, work pretty damn well. Not just in winter either — the Micro Puff’s lightweight warmth makes it ideal for cool summer nights and mornings and mountain adventures. Right now the Micro Puff is 25 percent off at REI in past season colors — a savings of $62. — Tanner Bowden
Adidas Ultraboost Sale
Save 20%: Pick up a pair of Adidas’s feel-good running sneakers for just $144 today. The Adidas Ultraboost is normally $180 but is 20 percent off. Here at Gear Patrol, the Boost sneakers we’ve tested have been some of our favorites — including the Solarboost — one of our best new running shoes of 2019. The hype around the new Adidas Ultraboost 19 is real, which means the original Ultraboost has been on sale quite frequently this year, but who know how long that will last. It’s responsive, so each footfall is soft yet fast. You can’t go wrong with a Boost purchase. — Meg Lappe
Viking 5-Ply Stainless Steel Fry Pan
Save 50%+: “Clad” in stainless steel cookware patois is code for a pan with various types of metals bonded to one another. Think of clad skillets like a sandwich; typically, the top and bottom layers are hardwearing, shiny stainless steel and the middle layers are various forms of quick-heating aluminum. Because of this, the best stainless steel cookware is clad metal — it heats faster and lasts longer than pure steel or aluminum cookware.
Today on Massdrop, Viking’s 5-ply fry pans in 8-inch and 12-inch options are well over 50 percent off retail price. The pans feature a more upward-sloping handle, slightly higher walls and heavier construction than similarly priced competition (like All-Clad). — Will Price
THURSDAY, APRIL 25
Bulova Devil Diver
Save 40%: The Devil Diver is a 44mm cushion-cased, screw-back watch with matte-black dial, sword hands framed in white and automatic Miyota movement with date. As on the original watch, the bezel’s first 15 minutes are done in red (a brightly-colored reminder not to stay underwater too long, and, you know, run out of air). You also get a box sapphire crystal with an internal magnifier and a steel bracelet. Oh, and that creamy, vintage-style lume. — Andrew Connor
Massive Discounts on Everyday Backpacks
Save up to 50%: If you’re looking for a new backpack for daily use, we’ve got you covered. Currently, you can save up to 50 percent on bags from Jansport, Filson, Topo Designs and more. So before you pay full price for a new daypack, check out this list — there’s
a style for everyone. — John Zientek
Sur La Table Spring Sale
Save 20%: Sur La Table stocks a huge amount of killer cooking gear. Its catalog is filled out with grail kitchen gear like Staub cocottes, All-Clad stainless steel, Kitchenaid stand mixers, brand new Lodge cast-iron skillets and John Boos’s cult-favorite cutting boards, but much of it demands a high price. Today, more than 2,000 of its products are marked down with code SPRING19 at checkout. This sale is worth a lunch break browse. — Will Price
Sonos Outdoor Speaker Bundle
Save $550: Here’s the problem. You have a Sonos speaker system in your home and you love it, but now it’s grilling season and your current Sonos system doesn’t extend outdoors. Fortunately for you there’s a cheaper way to fix this than ever before. At Best Buy right now, you can buy a bundle that includes the Sonos Outdoor by Sonance ($799) (a pair of Sonance outdoor speakers that are basically designed to work as outdoor Sonos speakers) and a Sonos Connect:Amp ($400), which is needed for the Sonance speakers to work with your Sonos system, for just $650. If you bought the speaker and amplifier bundle separately, it’d cost you $1,199. This bundle saves you a total of $550, which is pretty amazing.
Carhartt Washed Duck Work Dungaree Pant
Save 53%: Carhartt might be the biggest name in workwear, and right now much of its hardwearing clothing is on sale at Mountain Steals for as much as 60 percent off. Chief among the selection is the company’s classic duck canvas work pants, which you can snag for just $19 thanks to a 53 percent discount. Other fantastic deals include work shorts for $21, a button down work shirt for $22, a canvas apron for $27 and, for the die-hards, a one-piece cotton baselayer union suit for $22. There are plenty of other items in Mountain Steals’s Carhartt sale with limited colors and sizes, but if you’re in need for a refreshed set of work clothing, this is one sale not to miss. — Tanner Bowden
FRIDAY, APRIL 26
Dyson Vacuums, Fans & More
Save 20-70%: Today on Ebay, more than 50 Dyson vacuums, air purifiers and fans are marked down a minimum of 20 percent off. Pickings include the classic Multifloor vacuum for less than $200, the best-value cordless vacuum for $150 and a summer-ready, HEPA-equipped fan for an all-time low price.
The lot is a mix of manufacturer refurbished items and new items. Use code JUMP2DYSON for the additional 20 percent off (it stacks with existing discounts, too). — Will Price
Suunto MC-2 Compass
Save 42%: Sure, the Google Maps app on your phone pinpoint your exact location within seconds, but when there’s no service available or your battery dies, there’s no stand-in for a good old fashioned compass. On its own, a compass will show where North, South and every direction between are. Paired with a map (and some knowledge — REI has a great guide on how to use a compass), a compass acts just like that app on your phone. It’s a smart thing to keep in your hiking backpack for those just-in-case moments, and right now a great one from Suunto, a brand known for its high-end GPS watches, is on sale at Massdrop for 42 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Sony WH-H900N Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $100: The Sony WH-H900N is essentially a less premium and more affordable alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM3, which is arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. The two headphones look very similar, but the WH-1000XM3 is more feature-packed and boasts better noise-canceling skills. On the flip side, the WH-H900N is way more affordable today.
Spinnaker Cahill Automatic Dive Watch
Save 68%: Spinnaker’s Cahill automatic dive watch is a decent value at its retail price of $410, but currently marked down by 68% to $130, there’s little reason not to pull the trigger if one of the three available versions grabs your attention. — Zen Love
16-Inch Knife Block
Save 50%: In 2013, the National Sanitation Foundation conducted a series of studies aimed at identifying the grimiest areas of our homes. Amongst spatulas, ice makers, can openers and your refrigerator meat compartment, the knife block made the list. Luckily, the alternative is better in literally every way.
Knife bars — like Modern Innovations’s discounted 16-inch option — are magnetic strips you fix to a wall or the side of the fridge. You don’t run the risk of bacteria growth with them and they cost significantly less than a block of wood. Plus, they don’t dull your knives. Cook’s Illustrated found knives stored in a block dulled far more quickly than other methods of storage (they recommend knife bars as well).
Pick up a full-sized knife bar for $17 on Amazon today. — Will Price
