Seiko SNA Flightmaster Alarm Chronograph Watch
Save 58%: The classic pilot’s watch can provide the user with a plethora of useful information, and the Flightmaster, a quartz chronograph from Seiko, is a good example. The Flightmaster can give information on speed and distance, fuel consumption, climbing altitude, and much more. You also get a 42mm steel case, screw-down crown, 200m of water resistance, Seiko 7T62 quartz movement, domed Hardlex crystal, and a steel bracelet, now all for well over half off at just $199.

Everything at Levi’s
Save 40%:If the warmer spring weather has you dreaming of a new wardrobe, you’re in luck. Levi’s is offering 40 percent off everything on its website including clothing, shoes and accessories that are already discounted. So if you want to get a classic western shirt, a denim trucker jacket or even just a great pair of jeans, you won’t have to break the bank to do it. Just be sure to use the code FUNSUN40 at checkout to take advantage of the deal. — John Zientek
Mr Porter Sale
Save up to 50%:Online men’s clothing powerhouse Mr Porter is currently having its Spring Sale where a wide range of casual garments are up to 50 percent off. There’s a great mix of popular and hard-to-find brands represented and you can browse products from Vans, the Elder Statesman, Yuketen, Garrett Leight California Optical and more. Mr Porter’s normally steep prices are far more accessible now, making this a great chance to stock up on summer wardrobe staples — but if you see something you like, act fast. Sizes are limited. — John Zientek
Kammok Roo Double Camping Hammock Bundle
Save $48: There’s no right or wrong way to camp — the old sleeping-bag-in-a-tent method is perhaps the most traditional, but there’s nothing wrong with bedding down directly on the ground, beneath the stars and next to a lowering fire, either. Somewhere between these two choices is hammock camping, and right now one of the best camping hammocks available, Kammok’s Roo Double, is on sale at Huckberry for 37 percent off, a savings of nearly $50.
The main benefit of hammock camping is that you save weight. Instead of sacrificing half of the space in your pack to a tent and hauling it miles up a trail, you can instead carry a bed the size of a grapefruit. The Roo Double weighs only 22 ounces but can hold up to 500 pounds with Kammok’s tree-friendly Python Straps, which usually are sold separately but included in this discounted bundle. Another possibly more significant argument for hammock camping is that it’s fun, particularly during the summer months when being rocked to sleep by a warm breeze is preferable to roasting in a tent. — Tanner Bowden
Seiko Prospex PADI Dive Watch
Save Almost 50%: Powered by the cal. V157 quartz movement, the PADI special edition features a 47mm case, Hardlex mineral crystal, date display, Lumibright-coated hands and markers and a unidirectional rotating dive bezel. It’s water-resistant to 200m and features a screw-down crown and case back. Once fully charged, the power reserve on the V157 movement lasts roughly 10 months.
If mechanical watches aren’t your thing, then this PADI special edition could be your water watch this summer.— Oren Hartov
Moccamaster Coffee Maker
Save $79: Among its features and accolades, two things are most crucial: copper tube heating and the ability to disassemble. Copper coils, given the material’s natural heat conductivity, heat the water much more quickly than machines using steel or other methods (the only machine we’ve tested that brews faster is Breville’s Precision Brewer). The ability to take the whole thing apart is also unique, and it allows for troubleshooting and fixing at home rather than losing your source of coffee to the mail for a few weeks (it’s also great for cleaning the machine).
Today, Moccamaster’s KBS model is $79 off on Drop. It’s basically a blacked-out version that uses a glass carafe and hot plate rather than the classic stainless steel thermo-carafe. — Will Price
Running Essentials Memorial Day Sale
Save 70%:Beyond the typical Memorial Day weekend sales, JackRabbit’s 48-hour flash sale includes up to 70 percent off apparel — from shorts to tees to tanks to jackets. Now’s the time to pick up everything you need for summer runs. You’ll have to pick through sizes and colors, but there’s still a plethora of items on sale. — Meg Lappe

2018 iPad Pro
Save up to $150: If you’ve been considering picking up an iPad Pro, there’s never been a better time. Amazon has dropped the prices of the latest models and now they’re the cheapest they’ve ever been. The smaller of the two tablets, the 11-inch iPad Pro, normally starts at $799 (Wi-Fi only, 64GB), but Amazon is selling it for $125 off. The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro normally starts at $999 (Wi-Fi only, 64GB), but Amazon is selling it for $150 off. There are deals on cellular and larger storage configurations, too.
Apple Watch Series 3 Sale
Save 50%+:While my morning wake up time changes depending on how friendly the snooze button is, my morning routine doesn’t vary that much. I wake up, pop on my beloved Apple watch, and start to track everything. From meditation minutes to boxing classes, every move I make logs in the app — even if I forget to tell it I’m heading out on a run. I’ll get a nudge on my left wrist with the question, ‘are you working out right now?’ Right now, you can pick up a series three model (the most current version is the series four) is down from $409 to $170 in space grey. Since I put this watch on almost four years ago, it hasn’t vacated once. Shop the sale on eBay today. — Meg Lappe
Garmin Speak with Amazon Alexa
Save 50%: Amazon’s Alexa is already a staple of homes around the world, allowing people to perform all kinds of once-laborious tasks as easily as raising their voice. It’s also begun making its way into cars. Several brands, such as Ford, BMW and Hyundai, have all added Alexa capabilities to their new vehicles, and that list of manufacturers is sure to grow as the years go by.
If you’re not in the market for a new car, though, that doesn’t do you much good. Luckily, there are plenty of aftermarket add-ons by reputable companies that can bring Amazon’s virtual assistant to any vehicle. The Garmin Speak With Amazon Alexa is a small, simple gadget that sticks to your windshield; by pairing with your phone via Bluetooth and leveraging its data connection, the Speak can be used to communicate with smart gadgets at your home or office, play music from SiriusXM or Pandora (Spotify capabilities should be added eventually), create lists of things to do or coordinate with your calendar, even play games. And of course, it is a Garmin, the first name in aftermarket navigation systems — so it’ll happily give you turn-by-turn directions, too. It’s normally $100, but you can snag it today on Amazon for just $50.

Bags from Patagonia, Tumi and More
Save up to 50%:If you’re looking for a new bag for everyday use, you’re in luck. At Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale, you can save up to 50 percent on a range of great styles. Pick from duffels, backpacks, totes and more by trusted brands like Patagonia, Tumi and Topo Designs. But if you see something you like, don’t wait — these bags are selling quickly. — John Zientek
Timex X Mr Porter Gold Marlin Watch
Save 40%: This gold-tone version of Timex’s popular mechanical timepiece makes for a perfect dress watch, and it’s a steal right now at 40% off the list price of $200. — Oren Hartov

Seiko 5 SNZG Field Watch
Save 60%: If you tend to gravitate toward smaller watches, then the 37mm Seiko 5 SNK series is a great, affordable field watch. However, if you’re looking for something on the larger side, then the SNZG, which features a 42mm case, is probably a better bet. And the good news is that you can pick one up for $99 right now on Drop.
— Oren Hartov
Minimalist Sneakers from Common Projects
Save 30%:Since its inception in 2004, New York-based footwear brand Common Projects has become something of a cult favorite. The brand makes luxe versions of classic sneaker silhouettes, using premium materials and Italian craftsmanship. While the brand isn’t as hard to come by as it once was, it’s rare to find substantial markdowns on any of its styles.
But, today is one of those rare occasions. If you head over to Need Supply Co., you can save 30 percent on a few different pairs of shoes and boots from Common Projects. The understated styles are available in a range of sizes and prices start at $297 — that’s almost unheard of for this brand. — John Zientek
Addaday Softy Plus Foam Roller Sale
Save 60%+:The Addaday softy plus foam roller is the lowest price we’ve seen on a roller this soft. Typically, it’s $30, and today it’s down to just $9. Foam rollers help warm up your muscles before a workout, as well as stretch them out post-sweat. Having one in your apartment, home gym or office is always a good idea. It helps promote mobility, which keeps your muscles and joints performing at their peak, so activities of daily living (sitting, walking, eating, standing) remain as easy as they are right now for the rest of your life.
Foam rollers typically have a bad rap for being super tough, and thus hard on your muscles, but this soft one is a good place to start. And once you’ve worked your way up, you can always check out a vibrating one (albeit way more pricey). Whether you’ve upped your weekly workouts, or are just starting a new routine, adding this $9 foam roller to your warm up and cool down is the best idea you can have. — Meg Lappe
All-Clad 10-Piece Set
Save $205: What’s the difference between quality stainless steel cookware and cheap stainless steel cookware? In short, even heating, balanced weight, strong warranty programs, reputation and durability. The downside, of course, is cost.
Today on Amazon, the most-respected stainless steel cookware in the world is on sale — in bulk. All-Clad’s ten-piece collection of stainless is marked down from $700 to $495. The set includes a sauté pan, two fry pans, a stock pot and two saucepans. This is as inexpensive as the full kit of All-Clad has been on Amazon. — Will Price
Timex Acadia Field Watch
Save 40%: The Timex Acadia, a model based on a reference from the ’90s, features a 40mm black resin case, quartz movement with date function, black dial with 24-hour scale and 50m of water resistance. With its matching black 20mm NATO strap and military-inspired looks, the Acadia is perfect for the outdoors, and right now, its on sale for 40% off its list price of $85, for a final sale price of just $51. — Oren Hartov
Dyson Products on Ebay
Save Up to 60%: If you’ve ever wanted a Dyson vacuum, air purifier, hair dryer or lamp, now is a good time to strike. Ebay’s Pre-Summer Dyson sale event cuts prices back 20 percent, even on products that were already discounted.
Unsurprisingly, the best deals are on past generation Dyson products. Luckily, older Dyson products aren’t completely worthless. For vacuums, look to the cordless V8 or the classic upright MultiFloor model. HEPA-certified air purifier and fan combo machines are also discounted significantly. Use code PRESUMMER for the extra 20 percent off. — Will Price
Lawson Hammock Blue Ridge Hybrid Camping Hammock
Save 21%: During the warm summer months, we’re more than happy to trade out our tents to sleep in a hammock. But we also understand the misgivings held by hammock initiates — a primary one being that they leave you exposed to weather and insects. Our rebuttal: not all hammocks do; take Lawson Hammock’s Blue Ridge Camping Hammock, which is currently 20 percent off at Huckberry, as exemplar.
It’s best to understand the Blue Ridge as a hammock-tent hybrid. Using collapsible aluminum poles and a line that acts as a central beam, the Blue Ridge has an interior space that’s fully enclosed by mesh, and it comes with a rain fly for use in rough weather. More than that, it uses spreader bars on both ends to create a flatter sleeping surface than other ultralight camping hammocks that envelope sleepers in a cocoon. (Pro tip: you can prevent your body from contorting into a banana shape by lying diagonally in a hammock.) When there are no trees in sight, you can also set up the Blue Ridge on the ground, just as you would a regular tent.
Additionally, Kammok’s Roo Double, a more classic style of camping hammock, is also 37 percent off at Huckberry too. — Tanner Bowden

Seiko Black Recraft Chronograph
Save 51%: The Seiko Recraft Chronograph features the solar-powered Seiko cal. V175 quartz movement with date complication, a steel 43.5mm case with screw-down case back, 22mm lugs, 100m of water resistance and a Hardly crystal, as well as LumiBright-coated hands. Now, you can take over 50% off a blacked-out version of the Recraft Chronograph — you get all the same features, but with a black dial and black case, all for just $183. With its matching black, grey and orange NATO strap, this is the type of tactically-inspired chrono that you can wear all year long.

Cap Barbell Set
Save $20: Taking care of yourself can be expensive. Healthy eating, breathable clothes, the inevitable physical therapy sessions, and of course gym memberships all really add up. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great savings to be had. Rather than pay a recurring monthly fee for access to a facility with plenty of weights, you can get your own — and for not that much.
This set from CAP Barbell includes a whole lot for probably less than you’re paying a month to get access to your gym. The 40-pound set comes with four collars, two handles, four 2.5-pound plates, and four 5-pound plates all in a convenient carrying case. Sure, they may not completely replace your current gym, but they could be the first step towards your own home setup.
Save $20: — J.D. DiGiovanni
Fox Knives Suru
Save $53: Blade Show, the annual cutlery industry trade show that takes place in Atlanta, Georgia each year, is just around the corner. Last year, Fox Knives worked with designer Jesper Voxnaes to produce the Suru, the blade that took home the event’s grand prize distinction of Knife of the Year. Coincidentally, that knife is currently on sale at The Drop for 23 percent off.
The Suru won the top prize at Blade Show 2018 because its ultralight skeletonized handle was the first to use a carbon fiber frame lock. Overall, the knife weighs just 2.04 ounces. The version that’s on sale doesn’t use carbon fiber though — but you can find that knife for sale at BladeHQ — it uses aluminum. That bumps its weight up to three ounces but allows for a couple of new colorful finishes.
Beyond the handle, nothing else about the Suru has changed. It has a drop-point blade that’s 2.32 inches long and it wielders can deploy it using either a thumbhole or flipper tab. To build more utility into his small-ish pattern, Voxnaes gave the Suru two choils (the unsharpened finger cutouts where the blade meets the handle) that allow for a firm and full-handed grip. — Tanner Bowden
Sony WH-CH700N Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $70: The Sony WH-CH700N, for example, came out in 2018 and is definitely a cheaper alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM3. It delivers good noise-canceling, a long battery life (up to 35 hours on a single charge) and the ability to quick charge. Normally $200, Best Buy is selling them for $70 off.
