M1 Maverick Rail Wallet is a different breakaway design for Dango and a standout from any other wallet you can find out there. Filling the need to hold open identification badges and IDs, this wallet delivers, with style and function, and keeping the form factor as minimal as possible. Manufactured in the USA from 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum and machined to perfection, the M1 Maverick Rail Wallet has two sides to it: an RFID protected side as well as an RFID exposed side. Its unique frontal design and patent-pending quick-release rail mechanism allow you not only easy access to your cards but also a way to easily scan without having to take them out — perfect for IDs, accessing secured buildings or using public transportation. In addition, a grippy silicone band hugs the frame and holds cash and additional cards. This is the serious wallet upgrade you won’t regret — especially with the 10 percent off code GP10 you can use site-wide, exclusive to our readers for a limited time.
There’s an Insane Sale On Top-of-the-Line Motorcycle Helmets Right Now
Save Up to 53%: Your motorcycle gear isn’t something to take for granted. What you wear when you ride can literally save your skin, so it’s worth investing a little extra money to make sure you’re protected as well as possible. However, while the motorcycle lifestyle can have a tantalizingly low cost of entry compared to owning a car, buying the necessary protective clothing — pants, jackets, boots and especially helmets — can quickly run up a steep tab, making the cheaper, lesser options more attractive, even if they may not be quite as good. Right now, however, is the time to upgrade your head protection if there ever was one. Right now over at Revzilla, there’s an insane sale on top-of-the-line motorcycle helmets. You can save up to $800 on select top-tier motorcycle helmets from brands like AGV, Schuberth and Bell. If you’ve always wanted the performance and protection from one of the best motorcycle helmets available today (and really, why wouldn’t you want that?), now’s your chance to save a few hundred dollars and upgrade your lid game at the same time. –Bryan Campbell

Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket
Save $145: We’ve often said that the best time to score amazing cold-weather apparel deals is when it’s warm out. However, once in a while, an amazing sale surfaces even as the temps are dropping. Such is the case with Mountain Hardwear’s Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket, which is currently going for a hard-to-fathom 45 percent off at Backcountry. This isn’t any old down jacket, either. The Ghost Whisperer is a top-of-the-line item, an ultralight option that’s perfect for climbing, hiking, backpacking and other outdoor adventures. This jacket features easy-packing 800-fill down, ripstop fabric and a hydrophobic treatment to keep you warm and dry should the skies open up. The only caveat is that the massive discount only applies to one color: manta grey. But it is available in a range of sizes, and there are smaller discounts on two other colors if you’re more picky than thrifty. — Steve Mazzucchi
Michigan-Made Wolverine Boots
Save 25%:If you’ve been meaning to invest in a new pair of boots but haven’t found the right pair, Wolverine is currently making a compelling case for its hard-wearing styles. Now at Zappos, a bunch of boots from the Michigan-based brand are 25 percent off: choose from American-made lace-up styles including the iconic 1000 Mile boot and the go-anywhere Montague Boot boot. Many sizes are currently available, but with such a substantial discount, they won’t be for long. — John Zientek
Cole Haan Leather Weekend Bag
Save 74%:Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 74 percent on a tasteful leather weekend bag from Cole Haan. Available in brown, the bag features dual rolled-top handles, a zip closure and interior organizing pockets. It’s not overly complicated, nor should it be. The perfect size for a weekend getaway, it will hold a couple changes of clothes, toiletries and other necessities. — John Zientek
Blundstone Chelsea Boots
Save 30%:Blundstones were once the boots of choice for Tasmanian farmers, but have grown to become stylish footwear for people the world over. Their rugged soles and sleek, Chelsea-style uppers have made them versatile boots, especially for transitional weather. If you’re in need of a good fall boot, consider this solid Blundstone deal at Zappos. Currently, two styles of the boot maker’s Super 550 — which features a leather upper to go with that grippy, all-weather sole — are 30 percent off. — John Zientek
D’Angelico Premier DC Boardwalk Semi-Hollowbody Guitar
Save $250:Today only at Guitar Center, you can save $250 percent on a D’Angelico Premier DC Boardwalk Semi-Hollowbody guitar. That means the iconic archtop now costs just $550. If you’ve wanted to invest in a quality semi-hollowbody guitar and have been waiting for the right opportunity, don’t sleep on this. The Premier DC Boardwalk Semi-Hollowbody is an entry-level instrument packed with player-focused features. The laminated maple body has two cutaways, a slim C-shape neck and maple back and sides. It has a rosewood fretboard with 22 medium frets, two Seymour Duncan Jazz humbuckers, a Tune-o-matic bridge and Grover Rotomatic “Stairstep” tuners. — John Zientek
Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: The Bose SoundSport Free are the company’s first truly wireless earbuds. When they were released around two years ago, the SoundSport Free were selling for $250 a pop, but Bose had since lowered the price to $200; this is the current price of the SoundSport Free on Amazon (see here) and Bose’s website (here). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on eBay for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. — Tucker Bowe
Bose QuietComfort 30
Save $160: The Bose QuietComfort 30 are the company’s wireless noise-canceling earphones. They’re a great option for anybody that wants noise-canceling in-ear headphones, but it’s worth pointing out that they’ve been around since 2016. Yes, this means that Bose is due to come out with an updated version of the QuietComfort 30 in the near future – it already announced that the Bose Noise Cancelling Earbuds 700, the company’s first true wireless earbuds with active noise-cancellation, would be released sometime in 2020 – but it also means you can find some pretty awesome deals on them if you look hard enough. Case and point, this eBay deal. You can buy a refurbished pair of QuietComfort 30 for $140, which is a great deal considering that both Bose’s website and Amazon are selling new pairs for $300. — Eric Limer
Luminox ICE-SAR Arctic 1000
Save 20%: One of our recent Luminox favorites was last year’s ICE-SAR Arctic 1000, made in collaboration with the all-volunteer Icelandic Search and Rescue Service. Available in several dial colors, the Arctic 1000 is crafted from lightweight Carbonox and features a Swiss-made quartz movement, a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, tritium tubes and 200m of water resistance. Right now, you can take 20% off the black dial Arctic 100, dropping the price from an MSRP of $445 down to $356. Not bad for a hard-wearing watch with serious creds that comes with a 2-year warranty from the manufacturer. — Oren Hartov

At 43mm wide in a steel case, it’s bold-wearing and durable, with 200m of water resistance. Right now, you can get the Nighthawk on sale for $240, nearly half off its retail price of $475. — Zen Love
