Today’s Best Deals: A Meat Deal for One Last Grilling Hurrah, a Steal on a Wüsthof Chef’s Knife & More

Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at deals@gearpatrol.com.

Whether you like it or not, it’s time to savor the final days of the grilling season. And to give the season a proper send-off, stock up on high-quality meat from Porter Road. While there’s still time to get the charcoal going after Labor Day Weekend, now is a great time to fire up the grill, invite a few friends over, and toss on some pasture-raised, dry-aged steaks. Porter Road offers 100% pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb, and chicken, humanely raised in Tennessee and Kentucky, without the use of added hormones or antibiotics. You can snap up some premium cuts for 10% off with the code SEARPATROL — and even a free treat when you spend more than $75. So don’t let your grill cool down for the season without giving Porter Road a visit — the deal ends August 28 at 11:59pm ET.


Guitars

Fender Special Edition Telecasater
Save $150: If you’ve been looking to add a Tele to your collection, head over to Guitar Center today. Right now, you can currently save $150 on an already affordable Special Edition Deluxe Telecaster. The guitar merges the best of the classic design with a few new player-centric features.

It has a solid ash body with an aged cherry-burst finish, a 1-piece fast-action maple neck with a modern-C shape, medium jumbo frets and Hot Standard Tele pickups. This Mexican-made Tele also has a vintage-style 3-barrel string-thru-body bridge and cast/sealed machine heads. — John Zientek

Wüsthof 8-Inch Chef’s Knife
Save $81: There are three types of chef’s knives.

First, there’s the value knife, typically made of hardwearing, easy-to-dull stainless steel, that goes for $30 to $45 (think Victorinox’s Fibrox knife). The second comes in just under $100; the steel here keeps an edge longer, but it isn’t forged and, thus, it’s susceptible to chipping. But you’ll typically have to spend upward of $150 for a forged chef’s knife, something like Wüsthof’s Classic 8-Inch Chef’s Knife — a wide bevel knife designed in a classically German style.

The Wüsthof Classic is made of a stainless steel composite containing more carbon than is normal for a stainless blade, granting it some of the attributes associated with carbon steel knives (like markedly easier sharpening).

Today on Ebay, you can get it for 46 percent off. That’s more than $60 cheaper than its listed price on Amazon. — Will Price

Seiko Prosper Solar Diver Street Series
Save $90: This Seiko dive watch has all the specs and performance expected of the brand’s Prospex line, but with a Solar-charging movement and a stylishly monochrome gray colorway. Part of Seiko’s “Street Series” of urban-themed watches, it features the distinctive “tuna-can” case with its protective outer “shroud,” crown at 4 o’clock, and a neat dial texture. It’s also boldly sized at 42mm wide, water-resistant to 200m and not lacking in character. Grab one right now at Macy’s for $90 off the list price of $450, for a final price of $360. — Zen Love

Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket
Save $169: For months now, we’ve been stressing that summer is the best time to score cold-weather gear, particularly awesome down jackets. Today serves up yet more proof, in that the legendary Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket is currently on sale for a whopping 45 percent off at Backcountry. I have the non-hooded version of this jacket, and it’s just about perfect for fall weather — and even chilly summer evenings.

Dropping from $379 to $210 makes for quite a steal — as long as you’re not too picky. Don’t worry, the jacket is available in small through extra large. However, only one of the dozen colors is so sharply discounted: Caribou, which is sort of a dull bronze. But honestly, it’s a pretty good-looking color, and a month or so from now, you’ll be stoked to have it in your wardrobe. — Steve Mazzucchi



Hydro Flask Soft Cooler Pack
Save $94: Long known for excellent travel and fitness bottles, Hydro Flask entered the soft cooler market last year and has been crushing the category ever since. No surprise, then, that the brand’s Soft Cooler Pack was one of our favorite backpack coolers of the summer. We took it to the recent Mid-Atlantic Overland Festival and it rocked, keeping our beer cold for several hours.

And now this high-quality item is on sale at a hard-to-beat discount at REI. At $181, this pack is not only 34% off its regular price of $275, but also the $94 you’ll save should be enough to buy several six packs, no matter your geographic location or level of beer snobbery. — Steve Mazzucchi

Home Goods



Yamazaki Home Organization
Save 15%: Japan’s lesser-known Yamazaki is far less expensive and far more, well, useful than the world-famous whisky. In operation for more than 100 years, Yamazaki beat Marie Kondo to the tidying-up punch by a century. The company’s housewares are unobtrusive, sturdy and simple. They’re also incredibly affordable.

Its nifty rolling storage cart ($85) is slim and made of steel and real wood — not particle board and plastic screws. Its all-steel wall hanger ($69) is heavy enough to stay put when you hang a dozen coats over it. They even made a trashcan ($43) that does its job and doesn’t look goofy.

These pieces and more of Yamazaki’s thrifty organization gear are marked down 15 percent off on Huckberry today. — Will Price

Best of all, it’s available right now for just $50, a 33% savings off MSRP.

Japanese-Made Salt Optics Sunglasses
Save 80%: If you’ve been eyeing a pair of beautifully-crafted Japanese sunglasses, but haven’t had the cash to spare, head over to Nordstrom Rack. Currently, you can save 80 percent on some great shades from California-based Salt Optics. The styles are crafted in the small Japanese city of Sabae, where one in six residents work in the eyewear industry. Normally priced over $500, these sunglasses are just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek

Red Wing Shoes and Boots
Save 49%: For over 110 years, Red Wing’s boots have embodied American-made quality. Crafted in Minnesota, the footwear styles are Goodyear welted and feature leather from a local tannery — the S.B. Foot Tanning Company — also owned by the company. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save up to 49 percent on classic silhouettes from the Red Wing Heritage, including the Merchant boot, the Engineer boot and the Lineman boot. Act fast, because with deals this good, these boots won’t be around long. — John Zientek

Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: When they were released around two years ago, the Bose 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). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on Bose’s website for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. It’s true that Bose is selling “factory renewed” models, but every product comes with a 30-day trial period — if you’re not happy with the product you can return it and get a full refund.

TCL 6-Series 55-Inch 4K TV (2018)
Save $271: TCL’s 6-Series (2018) is still one of the best budget 4K TVs, and right now, a 55-inch model – a great size for most people – is on sale on Amazon. The 6-Series boasts very good image quality and supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision technologies, so no matter how you stream movies or shows, or which console you use to play video games, this TV is going to perform great. It’s a Roku TV, so most people will be familiar with it (if not, its interphase is really simple to figure out).

Need more of an endorsement? In a recent review, CNET‘s David Katzmaier wrote “TCL’s 6 series is the best TV value we’ve ever reviewed.” Boom. — Tucker Bowe

Patagonia Baggies Sale
Save 30%: It takes a lot for our team to agree on one pair of shorts that we all like, yet the Patagonia Baggies do just that. The shorts are great for hiking, running, swimming and leisurely bike rides all around the city or at home. They won our Best Gym Shorts award last year, thanks to its lightweight feel, adjustable drawstring waist and quick-drying fabric with mesh stash pockets that’ll hold your keys and snacks for long days on the trail. Right now, you can find a few of the patterned ones on sale for up to 35 percent off. — Meg Lappe

Carhartt Workwear
Save up to 60%: 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. And if your size in those is no longer available, Carhartt’s work jeans are also just $23. Other fantastic deals include a canvas shirt jacket for $27, a crewneck sweatshirt for $19 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, so if you’re in need for a refreshed set of clothing for spring and summer jobs, this is one sale not to miss. — Tanner Bowden

Today’s Best Deals: Shop Backcountry’s Semi-Annual Sale, Save 30% on a White Noise Machine & More

Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at deals@gearpatrol.com.

One of our favorite outdoor retailers has a lot of must-have gear on sale. Backcountry’s Semi-Annual Sale is running strong through August 22. You can snap up gear, shoes and clothing from brands like Arc’teryx, Patagonia, Mammut, Salomon and more at up to 50% off. The sale has some real gems like the ever classic Patagonia Snap-T, this minimal Mammut Trion 18L Backpack and these incredibly sleek Salomon Outpath Hiking Shoes. It’s hard not to be excited for those fall weekends on the trail with all this new kit. Get over to Backcountry for these great buys while you still have time.



AGV Pista GP R Carbon Winter Test 2018 Helmet
Save 44%:  The AGV Pista GP R Carbon series is essentially the top-of-the-line MotoGP motorcycle race helmet. AGV uses a super-light 100-percent carbon fiber shell and optimizes it in the wind tunnel for optimal stability, aerodynamics, and ventilation. It also has an integrated, no-fuss hydration system.

Splurging on a helmet is not abnormal. It is, after all, the most important piece of gear a motorcycle rider can buy. But, even for the everyday rider willing to spend, the AGV Pista GP R Carbon tends to be overkill for an off-the-rack helmet, with pricing sitting at around $1,600. That calculation may change with this massive discount: RevZilla is currently having a closeout sale on the 2018 Winter Test graphic version of the helmet, a limited-edition collaboration worn by seven-time MotoGP champ Valentino Rossi. You can now get it for just $900 — a $700 discount.

One potential drawback to that helmet, however — the color pattern is a bit much. Fortunately for those who prefer a bit less exuberance, this more sedate Project 46 2.0 version of the AGV Pista GP R Carbon is available on RevZilla with an identical discount. — Tyler Duffy

Allen Edmonds Shoes, Boots and More
Save up to 75%: For over 95 years, Wisconsin-based Allen Edmonds has crafted a great selection of Goodyear-welted shoes and boots. Its dress styles are essentially the American standard and its casual boots are on-par with some of the best. If you’re in the market for some new footwear and have been waiting for a good sale, head over to Allen Edmonds today.

Many clearance styles — including American-made oxfords and Italian-made loafers — are up to 75 percent off. You can even score a great deal on shirts, sweaters and belts if your closet is also in need of some extra attention. — John Zientek

Seiko Automatic Recraft
Save 54%: You can think of Seiko’s SNKM97 “Recraft” as a retro-tastic take on the venerable Seiko 5. The watch boasts the same bulletproof 7S26 movement that the 5 has used for years, but boasts a slightly-higher level of finishing and a design inspired by the old-school Seikos of the ’70s — the metallic forest green dial is a particularly great detail. As such, the watch is a great way to get into mechanical watch collecting, especially with this helluva deal: just $114, or a whopping 54% off its $250 MSRP.

Adidas x White Mountaineering Terrex Agravic Sneakers
Save $40: If you’re looking to pick up some limited-edition trail runners on sale, head over to Need Supply Co. today. Currently, the Terrex Agravic sneakers are $40 and cost just $160. The styles are made in collaboration with Japanese brand White Mountaineering and feature low-profile uppers and treaded outsoles.

The Speed + model has a mesh upper, sock-like collar, lace-up front and contrast details. If you prefer no laces, pick up the BOA version, which also includes a ripstop upper, Boost midsole and synthetic overlays. Both styles are available in sizes 8 to 12 — limit one pair per customer. — John Zientek



Hyperlite Camping Sale
Save 20%: Hyperlite makes some of the lightest, yet most durable tents and hiking packs using the magic material, Dyneema. While the gear is remarkably simple, it’s also incredibly tough — after all Dyneema is 15 times stronger than steel. Right now, you can upgrade all your camping necessities thanks to the brand’s 20 percent off sale. Check out the Ultamid 2 Pyramid tent, the stuff sack pillows, and more to prep for Labor Day camp activities, leaf-peeping and beyond. — Meg Lappe

Apple AirPods 2
Save $20: Apple’s second-generation AirPods with a wireless charging case are on sale on Amazon right now. The normally $200 package is selling for $180 right now, so it’s saving you $20 bucks. As a reminder, the new AirPods have Apple’s new H1 chip and that allows them to pair quicker to your iPhone and use “Hey Siri” completely hands-free Siri capabilities. Other than that, they look and sound the exact same as the first-generation AirPods. — Tucker Bowe

Currently, you can save up to 50 percent on some ridiculously cool Scottish-made sweaters from Howlin’. The pure wool knits have a classic silhouette and feature ribbing at the collar, cuffs and hem.
Unlike many traditional sweaters, they come in throwback colors and wild patterns. You can tell by the sweater names — “Birth of the Cool,” “Disco Dancer,” “Fall in Paradise” — the brand is anything but stuffy. Normally priced around $260, these sweaters are now as little as $109. — John Zientek

Marpac Dohm White Noise Machine
Save $14: Since 1962, Marpac’s entire purpose has been rather singular: making people sleep better. The Dohm white noise generator is its most known, recommended and, arguably, most effective product. The Dohm is a small, sci-fi-looking sleep accessory that is about as simple as it gets to operate (turn it on and twist the top until you like the emitted sound). It comes recommended by the likes of Wirecutter, Health, Sleep Advisor and many more, too. — Will Price

Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs
Save 50%: Like going to the dentist, eating raw vegetables, and getting eight hours of sleep, buying new underwear is one of those things everyone should do way more often.

Cotopaxi Outdoor Apparel
Save up to 70%: In its own words, Utah-based gear brand Cotopaxi is “into funky.” That proclamation becomes evident with a quick scroll through its site — there are a lot of colors. Even muted grays and blacks seem to pop, somehow. All that vibrancy and the eclectic pairing of clashing hues belies the fact that Cotopaxi’s gear is pretty damn technical. It’s Fuego Down Jacket, for instance, is stuffed with 800-fill water-resistant down, and its Sambaya Stretch Fleece Crew pullover is made of Polartec’s Power Stretch Pro fabric.

Both of those items are currently on sale — the down jacket is down from $230 to $140 and the pullover, originally $120, is just $30 — as part of a massive end of summer sale. In addition to those pieces, you can pick up a retro pile fleece pullover for just $42, a tech windbreaker for $32, an active tee for $15 and more.

Thermowork Thermapen MK4
Save $23: Ask anyone who knows their way around a grill and the answer will be the same: the meat thermometer is among the most essential grilling and barbequing accessories there is. And if you ask Cook’s Illustrated, Wirecutter or professional pitmasters who makes the best ones, it’s ThermoWorks.

The company’s business is the monitoring and regulation of heat grills and smokers. It makes humidity trackers, pH monitors, infrared heat-sensing guns and four-channel meat probes, but its marquee product has always been the humble Thermapen. It’s accurate and comes with helpful features like a rotating display, auto-enabled backlight and a category-leading IP67 waterproof rating.

Today on Thermoworks site, cop an open-box Thermapen for $23 off its usual $99 price tag. The on-sale units include sales demos, customer returns, cosmetic seconds, slightly damaged packaging and refurbished units (all come with Thermoworks’ full warranty). — Will Price

Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $150: Right now, eBay is selling refurbished Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for under $200. That’s a pretty terrific deal considering these are arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy, and new models typically cost around $350.

It should be noted that Bose and Sony both recently dropped the prices of their QuietComfort 35 II ($349 $299) and WH-1000XM3 ($349 $299) headphones, respectively, by $50 — Amazon is selling both their headphones for under $300.

That said, if you’ve been wanting to purchase some really great noise-canceling headphones, which are right up there with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 ($399) and the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, then you should jump on this eBay deal. — Tucker Bowe

Of course, the 1TB of storage is probably overkill for most people; but if you’re a photographer or videographer who edits on-the-go (or basically anybody who doesn’t use iCloud for storage), this iPad Pro model makes sense.

Kamado Joe 18-Inch Grill
Save $400: Most grillers have heard of the Big Green Egg — a heavy ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven. Anyone who’s tried to buy one also knows they don’t come cheap and that you can’t buy them online. The Egg didn’t have much real competition in its space for the first few decades of its existence (the company was founded in the mid-70s), but it has encountered a great deal of it with Kamado Joe.

The Kamado Joe is a heavy ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven that’s backed by a lifetime warranty), and it’s available online and comes with features the Big Green Egg doesn’t. The two most impactful is its patented Divide & Conquer cooking system, which manifests itself as grates that can be lifted up or down in certain sections (BBQ Guys has a nice illustration of it), and an ash drawer that slides out for simplified cleaning (the lid is also much easier to lift, for what it’s worth).

Typically retailing north of $1,000, the 18-inch Kamado Joe Classic is more than $400 off at Lowe’s right now. — Will Price

Rockymounts Westslope 2 Bike Rack
Save $80: Of all the ways to transport a bike with your car, we’re partial to the hitch-mounted tray. Loading and unloading bikes on one is remarkably easy because it doesn’t require that you remove a wheel, and when you aren’t toting two-wheelers it folds up nicely against the back of your car. Rockymounts’s Westslope 2 spaces bikes perfectly to minimize handlebars getting in the way. Plus, it adds an extra layer of convenience in that it can tilt away from your rig so that when it’s full, you can still get into the trunk. 

Right now it’s 25% off (a rare sale), which hashes out to a welcome $80 in savings.

Roku TV Wireless Speakers
Save $50: Most new TVs look gorgeous but they’re so thin that they can’t properly house good speakers – meaning they sound great. The other problem is that upgrading to a soundbar or receiver-based system can be expensive. Enter the Roku TV Wireless Speakers. The 2.0 system only costs $200 and is designed to pair perfectly with any Roku smart TV. The speakers connect over wi-fi and you just need to follow the setup instructions on your TV. There’s no dealing with any wires or finding the right HDMI or optical port on your TV. It’s easy. (Note: the speakers won’t work with Roku streaming sticks. The TV must have the Roku software baked into them to work with these speakers.) — Tucker Bowe

Seiko Recraft Solar Chronograph
Save 33%: This fun, colorful chronograph watch seems straight out of the 1970s and, with its matching NATO strap, is a perfect way to get into the summer spirit. It exists in Seiko’s retro-inspired Recraft Series and features solar-charged quartz movement — which means it’s highly accurate and hassle-free, never requiring a battery change.

Normally $118, they’re now 33 percent off and cost $79 — not a bad price for some of the best chinos available. — John Zientek

Save 26%: Today, in honor of the brand’s 6th anniversary, everything on MVMT’s website (every.single.thing.) is 26% off. MVMT also happens to manufacture inexpensive but well made sunglasses and jewelry in addition to watches, so if you’re in the market for an affordable pair of shades to help finish out the summer, this may be the time to buy — especially with so many different styles on offer. Here are some of our favorite sunglasses and watches from the sale, but it’s worth heading over to MVMT’s site and checking out the full roster. — Oren Hartov


Belstaff Raleigh Jacket
Save 23%: Belstaff is a byword for quality in the motorcycle jacket world. For nearly a century, the British company has produced premium jackets using exceptional materials and strong attention to style and detail. The trouble is Belstaff is also a byword for expensive in the motorcycle jacket world. You pay for every bit of that quality and reputation. A high-end Belstaff jacket can run well north of $1,000. But, right now, you can get a huge discount on one of their high-end jackets.

The Belstaff Raleigh jacket is an excellent all-arounder for fall riding. It’s meant to combine fashion with hand-finished leather and a classic-meets-modern look, and it’s highly functional, with a 1mm-thick hide and low-profile, flexible armor. Normally, the Belstaff Raleigh jacket runs for $1,295. But, RevZilla’s sale this week will drop the price tag down to $999, a 23% discount. If you’ve been waiting to splurge on a high-end British motorcycle jacket, now may be the time. — Tyler Duffy

Marathon General Purpose Quartz Field Watch
Save 20%: Marathon Watch Company makes some of our favorite military timepieces, including a General Purpose field watch available in both quartz and mechanical versions.

Right now, you can take 20% off the quartz-powered date version of the General Purpose field watch on Huckberry, which has been discounted from $400 down to $320. — Oren Hartov


L.L. Bean Boot Sale
Save 70%: The word “iconic” gets thrown around a lot these days, but in the case of L.L. Bean’s weather-beating duck boots, it’s a pretty spot-on descriptor. Their proven effectiveness at keeping your feet warm and dry in the slushiest of weather has made them a go-to shoe for everyone from hunters to city slickers. And right now, a ton of pairs are on sale, along with a plethora of clothing, outdoor goods, bags and more — all for up to 70 percent off. Check out the version above with a tumbled black leather collar and a cut that reaches just to the ankle, makes it easy to wear with a variety of trousers. Plus, the durable sole will help you get through all the cold and wet that fall and winter will likely bring. Stock up on all your winter boot needs today.
— Justin Fenner

Mighty Vibe Spotify Music Player
Save $24: The Mighty Vibe ($85) is a little screen-less music player, sort of like an old iPod Shuffle, and it’s specifically designed to work with Spotify. For Spotify Premium subscribers, you can download playlists and podcasts right to the Mighty Vibe and then listen to them offline. This makes the Mighty Vibe a particularly useful gadget for runners who don’t want to bring their smartphone on their run; it’s not only small, but it has a built-in clip that you can attach to your shirt or shorts. Right now, if you act fast, you can get a pretty good deal on the Mighty Vibe and a carrying case. Add both to your cart, enter the code “ROOMY” at checkout, and the normally $98 combo will cost you just $75. This deal only applies to the first 100 people that order.
— Tucker Bowe

Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: When they were released around two years ago, the Bose 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). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on Bose’s website for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. It’s true that Bose is selling “factory renewed” models, but every product comes with a 30-day trial period — if you’re not happy with the product you can return it and get a full refund.

Seiko Men’s Watches
Save 33%: Seiko consistently offers some of the best value for money in watches, even before the sales start. That being said, we all relish the opportunity to save even more, and right now Macy’s is offering deep discounts on tons of popular models (roughly 33%), from the Presage dress watch line to the professional Prospex diver models. With such variety on offer, there’s truly something for everybody.
— Oren Hartov


Outerknown Apex Trunk
Save 30%: The Kelly Slater-designed Apex Trunk by Outerknown is the pinnacle of technical swim trunks with a price tag to match. The swim trunks have a starting price of $125, which may steer some people away. But there’s a reason the Apex Trunk is the best pair of board shorts money can buy.

The Apex Trunk continues the legacy of Outerknown’s commitment to sustainability, constructed with about 12 plastic bottles worth of recycled polyester. The trunk is designed with stitch-free seams, 14 percent stretch and a slimmed-down construction. It’s a pair of board shorts worthy of an 11-time world champion surfer.

For one day only, the full Kelly Slater line of Apex Trunks is on sale. Take 30 percent off all Apex Trunks by entering the discount code APEX30 at checkout. This is the first time the brand is marking down these trunks, so there’s never been a better time to stock up on the best board shorts. — Tyler Chin

Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket
Save $50: The Nano Puff Jacket runs typically for $199, but right now you can score one for 25% off in previous season’s colors at REI. It’s one of those if-it-ain’t-broke pieces that Patagonia launches every season in new colors but the guts of the jacket remain the same. You’ll never need to update it either because Patagonia’s zero-questions repair program will take care of any fixes as it continues to age. (I’ve taken advantage of this multiple times, and my jacket has the new zipper and patch to prove it.) — Tanner Bowden


Kryptonite Evolution Bike Lock Sale
Save 26%: Looking up a bike outside always comes with its fair share of risk. A proper bike lock can help lower the chances that your bike will go missing overnight or while you’re at work. Right now, you can pick up a lock from Kryptonite for 26 percent off. The Kryptonite Evolution 11-14mm U-Lock Mini 7 usually sells for $67, but today, you can pick one up for just $50.

The Mini comes with 13 mm hardened steel that claims to hold together through hand tools and bolt cutters. A steel looped cable increases your bike’s protection. Each lock comes with three keys that you can store on your person, at work and home. Pro tip: register your keys as soon as you get your lock and Kryptonite will send you two new ones in case you lose them. Pick up one of Kryptonite’s most robust locks today.
— Meg Lappe

Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $150: Right now, eBay is selling refurbished Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for under $200. That’s a pretty terrific deal considering these are arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy, and new models typically cost around $350. It should be noted that Bose and Sony both recently dropped the prices of their QuietComfort 35 II ($349 $299) and WH-1000XM3 ($349 $299) headphones, respectively, by $50 – Amazon is selling both their headphones for under $300. That said, if you’ve been wanting to purchase some really great noise-canceling headphones, which are right up there with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 ($399) and the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, then you should jump on this eBay deal. — Tucker Bowe
grey_placeholder

Apple Watch Series 3
Save $80: The Apple Watch Series 3 is on sale on Amazon right now for $199, which is $80 off its normal price. It’s the lowest price that Apple’s smartwatch has dropped to, and it’s a great deal for most people looking to buy their first Apple Watch. The catch is that this on-sale Series 3 is only available in a 38mm model, meaning you probably need to have a small wrist to wear it. (The 42mm model is not on sale.)
— Tucker Bowe

Dr. Martens x Engineered Garments 1461 Smith Shoes
Save 20%: New York clothing brand Engineered Garments teamed up with Dr. Martens to riff on a classic shoe style. The collaboration 1461 Smith shoe has a smooth leather upper, a lace-up closure and a velcro strap. Made in the UK, the oxford silhouette features a branded hell loop, a leather lining, Dr. Martens’ Air-Cushioned sole and Goodyear welt construction.

Available in a range of colors, the shoe is now 20 percent off at Need Supply Co. and costs just $184. If you’re looking for an iconic silhouette with a twist, don’t sleep on this. — John Zientek

Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough Watch
Save 28%: The Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough is one of the hardiest watches available. Featuring a surface-hardened treatment to its 42mm steel case, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, 200m of water resistance, a matching steel bracelet and a quartz movement powered by any available light, this is a watch that’s practically begging to get the crap kicked out of it in the great outdoors.

If this is the sort of timepiece that appeals to you, well, you’re in luck — right now you can get the Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough for about 28% off using the code “SHINE” at checkout on Macy’s, a savings of $139 off the list price of $495.

Keen Sandal Sale
Save 50%: Keen makes some of the best breathable and functional hiking sandals and boots and today, they’re all up to 50 percent off. While some sandals look like something your dad would wear, we love the latest ones for rafting, boating and yes, hiking. Thanks to sturdy rubber soles and arch-cushioning footbeds, you can rock these puppies on the mountain, relaxing around the campfire and even biking. A few of our top picks? The Evofit One and the Rialto II H2. Shop a variety of styles and colors on Keen.com today. — Meg Lappe

Jaybird Run Headphone Sale
Save $65: Jaybird makes some of the best running headphones available, and right now, the Jaybird Run earbuds are 36 percent off and down to just $115. There’s never been a better time to buy a pair of sweat-proof true wireless earbuds. Back when Jaybird first launched the Run earbuds, we tested and were impressed. Our editors liked how easily they fit in their ears, the customizable audio menu (via the app) and the quick charge ability — five minutes in the case for an hour of sound. The Jaybird Run earbuds typically sell for $180, but on Amazon today they’re just $115. Shop the deal while you can. — Meg Lappe


Breville Bambino Espresso Machine
Save $100: Breville rules the home espresso world with a quality-focused, user-friendly fist. Available in late 2018, the Bambino Plus is one of the newest and most affordable machines in the company’s espresso machine portfolio. It’s simple to use, compact and comes with Breville’s standard (and exceptional) milk frothing wand, PID temperature control and event, consistent shots. It’s one of very few legitimately good espresso makers at the $500 price point. Today on Amazon, it’s $97 off its usual asking price; good for its lowest price ever. — Will Price

Fluance Turntables and Bookshelf Speakers
Save 20%: Fluance is a Canadian-based audio company that makes some of the best entry-level turntables and bookshelf speakers you can buy. Today, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, the company is holding a site-wide, 20-percent-off sale. Just enter the code FLUANCE20 at checkout.

This means that you can buy the Fluance RT81 ($250) and the Fluance RT82 ($300), two entry-level turntables that appear on many audio publications’ “best of” lists (including our own), for $50 and $60 off, respectively.

Timex X Todd Snyder Blackjack Watch
Save 28%: We were enthusiastic about the “Blackjack” watch when it first debuted, but in case you need a refresher, this is a sleek, automotive-inspired timepiece with cool “roulette wheel” dial done up in black and white, a black-finished case, 50m of water resistance, a quartz movement and a black Nato strap. The watch generally retails for only $138, but right now, you can nab it for just $99. — Oren Hartov

Seiko SNN241 Chronograph Watch
Save 56%: This chrono features a larger 42.6mm steel case with a Japanese quartz movement powering two sub-dials — a 60-minute counter at 12 o’clock, and a running seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, as well as a date window. The SNN241 has a brown dial with Hardlex crystal and a matching contrast-stiched brown leather band with double-locking clasp. It’s also water-resistant to 100m, so while it’s splash-proof, it’s best to switch to a trusty dive watch for serious water sports. — Oren Hartov

Barbour x Engineered Garments Jackets
Save 35%: British outerwear brand Barbour has been making durable weather-resistant jackets since 1894 and has a reputation for quality. Recently, the brand teamed up with NYC-based label Engineered Garments to reimagine a number of classic silhouettes. The collab pieces — a bomber jacket, a cropped jacket, a riding coat and a smock — are made in England from lightweight, hydrocarbon-coated cotton and feature raglan-sleeve construction. And now at End, they’re priced to sell at a 35 percent discount. If you need a lightweight layer to keep you dry as summer comes to an end, these styles are definitely worth a look. — John Zientek


Bell Race Star Helmets
Save Up to 50%: Bell’s Race Star helmet is a dynamite motorcycle lid for anyone who plans on hitting the track or back roads with verve. (Or at least wants other riders to think they’re hitting the pavement with verve.) Made with a carbon fiber 3K Carbon Shell to minimize weight, the Race Star doesn’t sacrifice offers protection at the altar of lightness; it meets or goes beyond Snell M2015 and DOT certifications, and packs a three-layer Flex Impact Liner to deal with crashes at any speeds. It’s been tested in wind tunnels to make sure the air flows over it with minimal fuss, while the Panovision viewport offers better visibility in all directions compared with Bell helmets past. And, of course, it just looks sweet.

Right now, thanks to a closeout deal over at Revzilla, you can pick up several variants of the Bell Race Star for massive savings — as much as 50% off on certain models. But there is, however, a catch: These sales are only available on small and extra-small helmets. If you need a bigger lid, you’ll probably want to look elsewhere; but if you’re cursed/blessed with a tiny head, well, today’s your lucky day.

American-Made New Balance 990V4 Sneakers
Save up to 25%: As the weather in North America transitions from warm summer evenings to crisp fall mornings, consider investing in a new pair of sneakers. If you’re looking for a domestic option that won’t break the bank, head over to Zappos. today. The retailer is currently offering 20 percent off the American-made New Balance 990v4.

Available in two tonal colorways, the style features a pigskin nubuck upper, an Encap midsole and a rubber outsole. Either is a solid option for any casual wardrobe, so if you’ve been prepping for fall, don’t sleep on these. — John Zientek



Chaco Sandal Sale
Save 70%: Sandals are made for summer, and thanks to recent reductions in the stigmatization of strappy, open-toe footwear, this particular summer seems to be the ideal season to dust off the pair at the back of your closet. Sandals aren’t just for camping and whitewater rafting anymore either: fashionistas might hate to admit it, but sandals are a common sight everywhere from Colorado to downtown Manhattan (wearing them with socks — gasp! — is also becoming a thing).

Maybe you missed this bandwagon the last time it came around, or your old pair is in need of a refresh. In either case, now is an excellent time because REI is selling Chaco sandals in a range of different styles at up to 70 percent off. — Tanner Bowden



All-Clad Factory Second Cookware
Save Up to 75%: All-Clad’s covetable cookware has been the option for high-end stainless steel since the brand literally invented bonded cookware in 1971. The only knock against them? That price tag.

Today, however, is a mammoth exception — the All-Clad factory seconds sale is live. The lot includes pieces from all the brand’s classic lines — D5, C4, non-stick and a few limited edition lines. But if you just want classic All-Clad, look under the section labeled “Stainless Cookware.” There you’ll find all the saute pans, fry pans, stock pots and sauciers you could ever want.

At up to 75 percent off, these are the lowest prices you’ll find on unused All-Clad outside of visiting the company’s in-person seconds sale at the factory. — Will Price

RMU Outdoors BRFCS Travel Bag
Save 15%: Rocky Mountain Underground, or RMU for short, is a ski company, but its BRFCS is a contender in the realm of adventure travel bags. The BRFCS — fill in the vowels for pronunciation — was the Colorado brand’s second foray into outdoor and travel and builds on the success of its Core Pack, an all-purpose backcountry adventure backpack.

The BRFCS is a carry-on compatible bag with a 35-liter base capacity that expands to 50 liters. RMU outfitted its interior with compartmentalized storage for clothing, (there’s enough room for ski boots), and smaller zip pockets for necessities and essentials; there’s also a false bottom. The BRFCS also features a padded laptop sleeve and a removable compression strap with hardware that doubles as a bottle opener. It can be carried like its namesake, with backpack straps and a stow-away hipbelt or as a shoulder bag.

The BRFCS is currently available at a discount of 15% off at Huckberry.

Bose QuietComfort 20 In-Ear Headphones
Save $100: Even though there are a bunch of really good over-ear noise-canceling headphones – the Sony WH-1000XM3 being our new favorites, edging out the Bose QC35 II – there aren’t nearly as many good in-ear models. In fact, Bose makes the two best noise-canceling in-ear headphones out there. There’s the Bose QC20s ($250, wired) and the Bose QC30s ($300, wireless). Both are fairly expensive, but you can get a pretty good deal on the wired models if you go on eBay right now. There you’ll find the Bose QC20s for $149, which is over $100 less than buying from Bose directly.

Special Edition Fender Deluxe Telecaster
Save $150: For almost 70 years, the Fender Telecaster has been a integral part of countless hit records and live rigs. The workhorse guitar was first introduced as the Broadcaster in 1950, and since then the instrument hasn’t changed a whole lot. The dead-simple design features a solid body with a single cutaway, a bolt-on neck and a couple pickups. That basic setup allowed for versatility and it became a favorite of musicians in genres ranging from country to jazz to metal.

[embedded content]

If you’ve been looking to add a Tele to your collection, head over to Guitar Center today. Right now, you can currently save $150 on an already affordable Special Edition Deluxe Telecaster. The guitar merges the best of the classic design with a few new player-centric features.

It has a solid ash body with an aged cherry-burst finish, a 1-piece fast-action maple neck with a modern-C shape, medium jumbo frets and Hot Standard Tele pickups. This Mexican-made Tele also has a vintage-style 3-barrel string-thru-body bridge and cast/sealed machine heads.

Normally $700, this guitar is just $550 today — act fast if you want a great deal.

Apple Watch Series 4
Save $50: The Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) is the Apple Watch that most people should buy. It’s the best-looking smartwatch with the biggest and brightest display that Apple has ever created; plus it has all the new features that the Series 3 lacks, including fall detection, a built-in EKG and a variety of fitness features. This model lacks built-LTE, however, but I’d argue that most people don’t need to use their Apple Watch as a phone, nor do they want to pay the extra $10 each month on their phone bill. Right now you can save $50 on either the 40mm or 44mm model. If you’re looking for an even cheaper deal and you’re cool with buying the older Apple Watch, the Series 3 (GPS) is selling for just under $200. — Tucker Bowe

Ikea Furniture and Home Goods
Save Up to 25%: Hidden beneath the release of its mammoth 2020 product catalog, Ikea announced price reductions for hundreds of products online and in-store. The price drops are permanent, so the discounts aren’t sales, but they do represent affordable products becoming more affordable. The lot isn’t skewed to one area of the home, with everything from drawers to silverware included. — Will Price

Gerber’s Center-Drive Plus is just such a product, delivering — among other things — a 3.25-inch partially serrated blade, spring-loaded needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, pry bar and bottle opener.

Most of these tools can be deployed quickly and smoothly thanks to the one-thumb opening system, and right now you can score this beauty for a whopping 32 percent off thanks to Drop. The Center-Drive Plus comes with a good-looking leather sheath, too, but this deal disappears Wednesday, so shop fast. — Steve Mazzucchi

Todd Snyder Dylan Suede Trucker Jacket
Save up to 50%: New York designer Todd Snyder recently gave the classic trucker jacket a major overhaul. Instead of crafting the casual style in denim or roughout suede, he opted to use luxe Italian suede.

Made in Italy, the Dylan jacket features a snap-front closure, two chest pockets slant hand pockets. It has a trim fit, hits at the hip and is unlined. Available in pink or green, it now starts at $499 — act fast to score this great fall upgrade. — John Zientek

Calvin Klein Underwear
Save 50%: Like going to the dentist, eating raw vegetables, and getting eight hours of sleep, buying new underwear is one of those things everyone should do way more often. (The ideal cadence is to refresh everything in your underwear drawer every six months, but you should aim to do it at least once a year.) Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can pick up a pack of three black cotton boxer briefs from Calvin Klein, one of the best sellers in the category. Act fast and get them for an additional 50 percent off the list price of $40. That means they cost just $20 today. — John Zientek


Campsite Coffee Makers
Save up to 25%: There’s something wonderful about enjoying a freshly-brewed cup of coffee in the wilderness. All of the pleasures that the beverage imparts when experienced in the comforts of home or at a favorite cafe are multiplied at a campsite, even when high-end barista machinery is unavailable.

Without a countertop appliance, coffee making becomes a modified and slightly more humble process. However, there is a range of lightweight and packable brewers available, from French press to pour over, but GSI’s JavaPress is our favorite for its ability to serve multiple cups in one batch and for its easy-to-clean construction. It’s currently 20 percent off at Huckberry.

French press not your brewing method of choice? GSI’s Packable Campsite Pour-Over Set is also on sale at Huckberry for 25% off. The kit includes an adjustable crank-powered burr grinder, a collapsible pour-over cone, a reusable nylon mesh filter and a spoon. All are lightweight and packable (as camping gear should be) yet fully fit for wilderness caffeinating. — Tanner Bowden

Save $97: Breville rules the home espresso world with a quality-focused, user-friendly fist. Available in late 2018, the Bambino Plus is one of the newest and most affordable machines in the company’s espresso machine portfolio. It’s simple to use, compact and comes with Breville’s standard (and exceptional) milk frothing wand, PID temperature control and event, consistent shots. It’s one of very few legitimately good espresso makers at the $500 price point. Today on Amazon, it’s $100 off its usual asking price; good for its lowest price ever. — Will Price

Seiko Prospex SRPB97 “Orange Samurai”
Save 50%: The Seiko Prospex SRPB97 “Orange Samurai” is exactly what you want in a summertime timepiece. It has a boldly-colored orange dial, runs Seiko’s proven 4R35 automatic movement and has a chunky case to keep that movement safe at depths up to 200 meters (not to mention the occasional careless knock here or there).

Best of all, it’s cheap. Right now at Macy’s, you can get it for a full 50 percent off. That takes the price down to just $263 from its full retail of $525. And if orange isn’t exactly your thing, Macy’s is offering tons of other Seiko dive watches on sale to choose from as well. — Andrew Connor

Save up to 55%: If you’re in the market for some solid wardrobe staples, head over to End today. Currently, you can save up to 55 percent on a bunch of garments from Carhartt WIP.

Jabra Elite 65e headset
Save $160: The Jabra Elite 65e headset is arguably the best value proposition for anybody who wants in-ear headphones with active noise cancellation. Their nearest rival is the Bose QuietComfort 30, which costs $299, and that’s $99 more than the Jabra Elite 65e.

If you’re looking for a really sweet deal on in-ear noise-canceling headphones, you can buy a refurbished pair of Jabra Elite 65e on eBay for just $40. That’s a pretty steep discount. If you’re looking for a new pair, Amazon is discounting the Jabra Elite 65e for $153 right now. — Tucker Bowe



Dyson Vacuums
Save $100: Deals can be found on Dyson’s covetable vacuums fairly frequently through third-party vendors on Ebay and its certified manufacturer-refurbished program, but deals on newer vacuums are rarer. Today on its site, vacuums like the classic MultiFloor and cordless V8 are marked $100 off their retail prices. Are they cheap? No, this is Dyson. Are they more reasonable? Yes. — Will Price

Today’s Best Deals: Last Chance to Score a Classic Yeti Backpack, Bose Headphones for a Steal & More

Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at deals@gearpatrol.com.



Bose SoundSport Free
Save $80: When Bose released the SoundSport Free around two years ago, they 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). However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on Bose’s website for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. — Tucker Bowe |


Fender Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster
Save $1,151:The Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster has an ash body, 21-fret quartersawn maple neck with a ’57 soft-V profile, a vintage bridge and a single-ply parchment pickguard. The guitar has two hand-wound Tele pickups — a ’55 Tele pickup in the neck and a ’51 Nocaster pickup in the bridge — and a 3-way pickup switch. Also notable: the Tele has a heavily-worn 3-tone sunburst finish that was virtually non-existent on models from the mid-‘50s.
Limited to just 40 instruments which are exclusively carried at Guitar Center, this model is geared towards serious players or avid collectors. And while normal Custom Shop prices can be hard for some to swallow, this guitar is now 25 percent off. That means you can save $1,151 on this ridiculously nice Tele and take it home for just under $3,500. For a person obsessed with the details, this is a deal worth acting on. — John Zientek

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
Save $98%:In the world of sunglasses, it doesn’t get much more iconic than a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. First released in 1956, the design has hardly changed in over half a century. If you’ve been wanting the style, but the list price is more than you want to spend, Nordstrom Rack has you covered; you can get a pair of $178 Wayfarers in either black or Havana for just $80. What’s more, these Italian-made shades also come with polarized lenses to protect your eyes all summer long — hard to beat that. — John Zientek

The North Face Apparel Sale
Save up to 43%: You know The North Face for things like down jackets, hiking backpacks and innovation breakthroughs in technical outerwear. The company makes everything required to get you to the top of a mountain or down a hundred-mile trail, but if you’re like us, you don’t find yourselves in those environments as often as you’d like. That’s where hats and tees come in. These basics are to everyday life what jackets and tents are to expeditions — you can’t live without them. And right now, you can stock up on t-shirts, hoodies, beanies and caps at Nordstrom for up to 43% off. (More technical pieces like insulating jackets, fleece, and rugged packs and duffels are also included in the sale.) — Tanner Bowden

Yeti Tocayo Backpack Sale
Save $70: Yeti Nation will be sad to see the Tocayo Backpack 26 disappear from Yeti’s site and stores as it’s headed for retirement. However, that means right now is the best time to buy the black or tan backpack. It’s tough, durable and sturdy, just like all its fellow Yeti comrades. Spacious pockets and interior divisions mean it’s easy to keep everything organized. Pair all that with a waterproof exterior (will stay dry in the rain), a padded laptop sleeve and firm EVA padding along the base and back and you have, quite possibly, the last backpack you’ll ever have to buy. Save over $70 today — before the Tocayo disappears into the archives of Yeti legacy. — Meg Lappe

Timex Expedition Scout
Save 40%: Right now you can grab Timex Men’s Expedition Ranger Watch in one of three iterations for between $40 and $47, depending on the model (a blue-dial version is available on a brown leather strap for $40, while a grey-dial version ships on a matching bracelet for $43, and a black-dial version ships on a matching bracelet for $47). All three versions feature an identical 43mm steel case with 50m of water resistance (good for the field, but not for diving), an analog quartz movement with date display and a unidirectional count-up bezel. The highly legible dials also feature sword hands and Indiglo illumination for low-light visibility. — Oren Hartov

The tech companies we use every day know way more about us than we’d like. It’s a fact. It is no secret at this point that anything we search, click on, or post can be collected, tracked, stored and used by tech companies, advertising agencies and (conspiracy theories aside) the government. Ad blockers and incognito mode do virtually nothing to protect your privacy. To help give you peace of mind — and keep your data private — try the new Winston Online Privacy Device. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) alternative, Winston is a small minimalist box that is plugged-in between your modem and router that shields all the information passing through your home or office network. It does this by scrambling your information between different locations, obscuring its point of origin and giving you the protection you need. Winston also blocks over 90,000 different advertising and tracking sites helping to declutter your online experience as well. You can grab a Winston from its Kickstarter page below.



Schuberth C4 Spark
Save 53%: Riding a motorcycle is a delight for the senses, but it can grow a little weary on the ears after a while. Between the roar of the wind rushing past and the drone of the engine, it doesn’t take long for the sounds of a ride to push into the irritation zone — or even start to cause causing hearing damage.

Of course, a good helmet can help offset those potentially-deafening noises. And right now, one of the quietest helmets on the market today—the Schuberth C4 Spark Helmet—is on sale for a massive 53 percent off at RevZilla. — Will Sabel Courtney



MacBook Air 2019
Save 18%: Last month, Apple quietly updated the MacBook Air with a True Tone display that can adapt its color temperature to the room plus a new keyboard, pairing these minor updates with a price drop from $1,199 to $1,099 (and $999 for college students). But now, anyone can get a 128GB model for just $899 thanks to a deal at Best Buy.

Before the Air’s redesign and resurrection in 2018, the plucky little laptop was notable for being the only sub-$1,000 notebook in Apple’s lineup. While the official list price may still be above that threshold, this deal will let you relive the glory days of buying a MacBook that won’t break the bank. — Eric Limer



Chris Reeves Limited Edition Inkosi Knife
Save $97: Anyone who saw our behind-the-scenes profile of Chris Reeves Knives knows the place is downright legendary when it comes to crafting blades of incredible quality, design and aesthetics. The Sebenza was one of the first to garner national acclaim, and the Inkosi is its equally fantastic followup. The drop-point blade is made of S35VN, the best cutlery steel money can buy, and this knife also features thumb studs for ambidextrous use, the signature Reeve “integral” frame lock and simply stunning good looks.

It’s no wonder these knives never go on sale. And yet right now, this Limited Edition Inkosi from Best Made Co. is nearly $100 off — down from $425 to $328 — for those who are willing to wait. Click the link below to sign up, and you’ll get an email when the next batch drops, along with a chance to score a great deal on the last EDC knife you’ll ever need to buy. — Steve Mazzucchi



Foehn Apparel Sale
Save 50%: By now, you’ve heard the catchline “city to mountain;” maybe even “trail to tavern,” “backcountry to bar,” “slope to sidewalk” and all the other alliterations that describe versatile gear that’s both functional and stylish. Not all items that get the distinction actually work that way though — they’re often less technical and don’t look that great, jacks of both trades and masters of neither. One brand that’s managed to find that perfect balance is Foehn, a small rock climbing apparel company based in Canada.

We’ve tested everything that Foehn makes — from the pants that the company launched with to its down hoodie pullover — everywhere from the streets of Brooklyn to the high crags of the Rocky Mountains. It works. It looks good. It draws attention in both urban and backcountry environments (“Who makes those pants?!”). It’s also on sale for 50% off right now when you use the code SUMMER50. — Tanner Bowden



Seiko Prospex PADI Solar Watch
Save 39%: If you’re still on the lookout for an affordable, robust dive watch to accompany you on your summer adventures, you could do much worse than this PADI-edition Seiko Prospex solar diver, the SNE435P1. Featuring a 43.5mm stainless steel case with 200m of water-resistance, a unidirectional dive bezel, luminous hands and indices, date window and matching steel bracelet, the SNE435P1 makes use of a solar-powered quartz movement. Once fully charged, you won’t have to worry about the battery running out of juice for a full 10 months, giving you plenty of bottom time with this handsome diver.

Best of all? The SNE435P1 is currently 39% off on Amazon, for a final price of just $240. — Oren Hartov



Gitman Brothers Vintage x Need Supply Shirts
Save 60%:If you’re looking for a new shirt to compliment — or contrast — your traditional white and blue button-down styles, head over to Need Supply Co. today. Gitman Brothers Vintage is offering some wild versions of the traditional American silhouette for 60 percent off. Pick from various tie-dyed colors — each shirt features the button-down collar, front button placket, chest pocket and center back pleat you already love. — John Zientek

Lodge Cast-Iron Cookware Set
Save 47%: Though a swell of craft cast-iron cookware makers have sprung up in recent years, none match the value of America’s longest-running iron pan manufacturers. Today on Amazon, three separate pans (griddle, grill pan, skillet), pan scrapers, a pot holder and a handle mit can be had for all of $52. That’s 47 percent off the “Essential” pan set’s usual $99 retail price — good for its lowest-recorded price ever. Our recommendation: start with bacon. — Will Price

Made In Butcher Block
Save 25%: The maker of some of our favorite cookware and kitchen knives, Made In’s Austin, Texas-based operation recently expanded to butcher block cutting boards. The juice grooves are cut extra-deep, it comes pre-oiled, there’s a pair of clever handles cut into the sides for carrying and they’re made of the leftover bits of 100 percent Maplewood from a Wisconsin furniture maker. Today on Made In’s site, the $99 cutting board is 25 percent off. Use code BB25 at checkout for the discount. — Will Price

Seiko Prospex Street Series Solar Dive Watch
Save 10%: This Seiko dive watch has all the specs and performance expected of the brand’s Prospex line, but with a Solar-charging movement and a stylishly monochrome gray colorway. Part of Seiko’s “Street Series” of urban-themed watches, it features the distinctive “tuna-can” case with its protective outer “shroud,” crown at 4 o’clock, and a neat dial texture that benefits legibility. It’s boldly sized at 42mm wide, water-resistant to 200m, and not lacking in character. Right now Macy’s is running a deal where you can get it at a discounted price of $405 by entering the promo code “BTS” at checkout. — Zen Love grey_placeholder

Nike Air VaporMax 2019 Sneakers
Save 30%: Now at Nordstrom, you can save 30 percent on a pair of much-hyped Nike Air VaporMax 2019 sneakers. That means these ultra-lightweight, translucent sneakers are just $133. The design features a stretchy ripstop upper on top of Nike’s flexible Air cushion system. For support, the sneaker has a midfoot cage and external reinforcement in the heel. If you’d like more color options, head over to Nike where you can score a few other options for as little as $114. — John Zientek

Gerber Center-Drive Plus Multi-Tool
Save $46: The right multi-tool has all the functions you need but none you don’t, making it streamlined and easy to access the implement you require at any given time. Gerber’s Center-Drive Plus is just such a product, delivering — among other things — a 3.25-inch partially serrated blade, spring-loaded needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, pry bar and bottle opener.

Most of these tools can be deployed quickly and smoothly thanks to the one-thumb opening system, and right now you can score this beauty for a whopping 32 percent off thanks to Drop. The Center-Drive Plus comes with a good-looking leather sheath, too, but this deal disappears Wednesday, so shop fast. — Steve Mazzucchi

grey_placeholder

The James Brand Ellis
Save 25%: The James Brand’s Ellis is simple: it has a partially serrated, clip-point blade and a bottle opener/screwdriver/scraper. Both of these implements use a simple lockback construction to stay open during use. They’re also made of Sandvik 12C27 steel, which is a well-rounded material that has excellent edge retention, durability and corrosion resistance (it’s commonly used for ice skate blades). All that is to say that you can put the Ellis through the wringer daily and not worry about how it’s holding up.

That, and its simple, less-than-a-multi-tool, more-than-a-pocket-knife design make it one of our favorite knives available. It’s affordable at its regular price of $99, but right now you can get it for 25 percent off. — Tanner Bowden

Nintendo NES Classic Edition
Save $30: Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the NES console from 1985, in 2016 and at that time it was nearly impossible to find — demand was too high. Fast forward several years and it’s a little easier to buy, although for an uptick charge. Listed as $60 on Nintendo’s website, but in order to buy an NES Classic Edition you have to order from a third-party seller like Amazon, which is currently selling models for $80. For a little bit of a deal, however, check out eBay: it’s selling refurbished (by Nintendo) models for just $50. That’s $30 cheaper than what they’re going for on Amazon. — Tucker Bowe

The Michigan-based brand is now offering 40 percent off a bunch of boots: choose from American-made lace-up styles including the iconic 1000 Mile boot and the go-anywhere Montague Boot boot.

Bose SoundSport Free

However, you can currently get a pair of SoundSport Free that have been “factory renewed” on Bose’s website for $120. That’s significantly cheaper than AirPods. — Tucker Bowe | grey_placeholder

Apple Watch Series 4
Save $50: The Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) is the Apple Watch that most people should buy. It’s the best-looking smartwatch with the biggest and brightest display that Apple has ever created; plus it has all the new features that the Series 3 lacks, including fall detection, a built-in EKG and a variety of fitness features. This model lacks built-LTE, however, but I’d argue that most people don’t need to use their Apple Watch as a phone, nor do they want to pay the extra $10 each month on their phone bill. Right now you can save $50 on either the 40mm or 44mm model. If you’re looking for an even cheaper deal and you’re cool with buying the older Apple Watch, the Series 3 (GPS) is selling for just under $200. — Tucker Bowe |

Unless you’re hauling your bike inside your apartment, home or garage, you’re going to need a way to keep it safe from thieves. While there are a variety of high-tech bike locks out there, going old school is always a good idea, which means steel chains. Kryptonite’s New York Fahgettaboudit Chain and disc lock features 14-mm six-sided manganese steel chain links attached with a steel shackle. Unlock with three stainless steel keys. Pro tip: keep one at your office, one on your key ring and one at home — you never know when you’ll get stranded somewhere and need an extra one.

Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at deals@gearpatrol.com.



Adidas Terrex Free Hiker
Save $60: Good things really do come to those who wait. And by good things, we mean “killer deals on awesome hiking shoes.” After all, earlier this year we were breathlessly admiring the Adidas Terrex Free Hiker, which effortlessly weaves in some of the brand’s outstanding running innovations, including an energy-returning Boost foam sole and a super-breathable, close-fitting Primeknit upper.

Garmin Watch Sale
Save $260: Garmin makes some of the most reliable GPS tracking watches around, which is why we’re so psyched to see one of its best watches on sale. We’ve run and tested a handful of them, including the Fenix 5, and were so impressed we kept it on our wrists for more than just our activity of the day. This watch works for everything from hiking to marathon training and is still the one we’re happy to wear around town. It tracked our routes seamlessly, and the battery life is pretty impressive. Right now, you can save $260 off a Garmin Fenix 5, which is the lowest we’ve seen it.

Whether you love running, hiking or adventuring, the Fenix 5 is the perfect model. It’s a hefty watch but comes with 24 hours of battery life (when running GPS/HR), a super-strong face and design and a comfortable band. Check your VO2 max, messages, steps and more after each run around the block or down the hill. The watch monitors training status as well as how long you need to recover after your logged workouts. Shop this Amazon deal while it lasts. — Meg Lappe

R.M. Williams Chelsea Boots
Save $325: In 1932, Reginal Murray Williams founded his eponymous brand in Adelaide, South Australia, offering saddles, riding boots and other leather goods for cattlemen. The boots, in particular, were a hit. Made from a single-piece leather upper, they had a clean silhouette, a simple pull-on style and superior durability. And over the past eight decades, the design hasn’t changed much.

In recent years, however, the brand received investment from L capital — a private-equity fund sponsored by LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) — along with IFM Investors and Hugh Jackman. The influx of resources and capital has allowed R.M. Williams to expand on a global scale, offering its iconic boots to a much wider audience. You can pick up a pair at East Dane, where the classic Chelsea boot style is now on sale. Available in full-grain cognac leather, it features elastic insets, branded pull-tabs and leather soles. The current sale offers 50 percent off — that’s savings up to $325. — John Zientek

Take, for example, this Prospex SRPB55 “Samurai.” It’s has a full 200-meter depth rating (meeting ISO’s standard for divers), an in-house automatic movement, a waffle-textured dial and a case with a black ion finish. Yet you can get all of this for just $525 — except right now on Amazon, the watch is selling at a 25 percent discount, meaning you can get this hard-hitting diver for only $394. — Oren Hartov grey_placeholder

Barbour x Engineered Garments Jackets
Save 35%: British outerwear brand Barbour has been making durable weather-resistant jackets since 1894 and has a reputation for quality. Recently, the brand teamed up with NYC-based label Engineered Garments to reimagine a number of classic silhouettes. The collab pieces — a bomber jacket, a cropped jacket, a riding coat and a smock — are made in England from lightweight, hydrocarbon-coated cotton and feature raglan-sleeve construction. And now at End, they’re priced to sell at a 35 percent discount. If you need a lightweight layer to keep you dry as summer comes to an end, these styles are definitely worth a look. — John Zientek

Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at deals@gearpatrol.com.



Todd Snyder x Timex MK1 Steel
Save 34%: Based on a watch produced by Timex to military specifications for the US Marines in 1982, Todd Snyder helped bring it back in this undeniably cool-looking modern form called the Timex MK1. In an all-steel 40mm case water-resistant to 30m and topped with a domed acrylic crystal, the dial is illuminated by Indiglo luminescence, and time-keeping is powered by a quartz movement. Right now, the Timex MK1 SST is on sale at Todd Snyder for 34% off its retail price of $119, which means you can grab it for just $79. — Zen Love grey_placeholder

Global 4-Piece Steak Knife Set
Save $121: In our testing, we found Global’s G-2 to be the best Japanese kitchen knife you can buy. It’s made from proprietary Cromova 18 steel — that mean’s it’s super durable, and it resists corrosion and staining better than other knives in its class. The company’s steak knives, meanwhile, share all of these properties. And right now, a set of four is going for 43 percent off on Amazon — good for $121 in savings.

Chaco Sandals
Save up to 50%: Sandals are made for summer, and thanks to recent reductions in the stigmatization of strappy, open-toe footwear, this particular summer seems to be the ideal season to dust off the pair at the back of your closet. Sandals aren’t just for camping and whitewater rafting anymore either: fashionistas might hate to admit it, but sandals are a common sight everywhere from Colorado to downtown Manhattan (wearing them with socks — gasp! — is also becoming a thing).

Maybe you missed this bandwagon the last time it came around, or your old pair is in need of a refresh. In either case, now is an excellent time because REI is selling Chaco sandals in a range of different styles at up to 50 percent off. — Tanner Bowden

Dyson V11 Torque Drive
Save $101: Every year, Dyson charts new territory in the vacuum world with iterative improvements upon older models, usually in the form of more battery, more power. This year’s V11 Torque Drive stayed true to that trend; it also additional space in the dustbin and a novel LCD display that tells users how much juice is left in the battery. Right now, buy it for $100 off the normal retail price at Amazon. — Jack Seemer grey_placeholder

Red Wing Heritage Moc-Toe Boots
Save 36%:When you’re presented with the chance to save on Red Wing Heritage boots, you’d be foolish to pass it up. The brand’s boots are rarely on sale and when they are, sizes are often limited. But now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save up to 36 percent on a pair of classic Red Wing Heritage Moc-Toe boots available in sizes 7 to 11. This American-made style features Brown Boomer leather from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company in Minnesota and a non-marking outsole. What are you waiting for? — John Zientek

Dainese Chido72 Leather Jacket
Save 59%: Motorcycle jackets are one of the most important pieces of safety gear to wear when riding — but let’s face it, many of them stick out like sore thumbs in non-biker circles. Even the ones that do without space-age wicking materials and bright hi-viz colors often look a little extra, as the kids say, what with features like inflexible armor, heavy padding and offset zippers.

Well, the zipper on the Dainese Chido72 motorcycle jacket may ride a little left of center, but this leather outer layer is far from your stereotypical biker jacket. It’s a stylish throwback to the era before modern safety technology turned moto jackets into flexible armor. Of course, it’s made by Dainese, so it’s still plenty functional and safe: beneath that soft cowhide are pockets to slide back, elbow and shoulder protectors. And while it normally sells for $560, right now, you can snag it for 59% off during Revzilla’s flash sale. Click the button below and upgrade your riding style with a few strokes of your finger. — Will Sabel Courtney

Teva Hurricane XLT 2 ALP Sandals
Save 50%: If you don’t have a great pair of sandals, head over to Need Supply Co. today. Currently, you can save 50 percent on some great options from Teva. The Hurricane XLT 2 ALP sandals — featuring water-ready web straps, an EVA midsole and a rugged rubber outsole — will save your feet in the sweltering August heat. They now start at $42, so act fast — sizes are limited. — John Zientek grey_placeholder

KEF LS50 Wireless
Save $200: The KEF LS50 Wireless are without a doubt some of the best active bookshelf speakers you can buy, and right now you can purchase a pair of them for $200 off on Amazon. When we reviewed them in 2018, we called the speaker pair a “one-stop-shop hi-fi system.” Each speaker has two built-in amplifiers, one for its tweeter and one for its woofer, and a dedicated DAC (up to 24-bit/192kHz) and DSP for each. In addition to sounding amazing, the KEF LS50 Wireless are versatile. They have built-in Wi-Fi and work seamlessly with Spotify and Tidal; you can stream to the speakers directly from those apps. The speakers also have built-in Bluetooth (aptX), making it easy for anybody to play music (not just those connected to Wi-Fi). And have a number of wired connections (optical, USB-A. RCA), meaning you can quickly and easily turn them into your TV’s or turntable’s speakers. — Tucker Bowe grey_placeholder

Wardrobe Essentials from Outerknown
Save 70%: California-based clothing brand Outerknown makes some of our favorite wardrobe staples. Its laid back threads are easy to integrate into your daily wardrobe and will quickly become the first things you reach for in the morning. Now during the brand’s Summer Sale, you can save up to 60 percent on a huge selection of clothing. Pick from shirts, pants, shorts and more — deals start at just $9. — John Zientek grey_placeholder

Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Razor Blade Refills
Save 36%: Now at Amazon, you can save 36 percent on some annoyingly expensive Gillette Fusion5 razor blade refills. This is a great chance to stock up if you shave regularly with a Fusion5 ProGlide razor. Each cartridge features five of Gillette’s thinnest blades (for a more comfortable shave) and a precision trimmer to help groom hard-to-reach areas. Normally $36 for 8 cartridges, the package costs just $23 today. — John Zientek

Vuori Gym Shorts and Shirts Sale
Save 50%: Vuori makes some of the most comfortable sweats, shorts and tees — and today you can snag both tops and bottoms from JackRabbit for up to 50 percent off. The silky fabric upgrades your basic gym tee, so you can wear the shirt to a HIIT workout or a Saturday afternoon soccer game. Each piece features performance-enhancing add-ons, like ventilating perforations, moisture-wicking fabric and an athletic fit. Vuori gear rarely goes on sale, so we highly recommend you take advantage of this sale while it lasts. Shop all your new favorite gym gear today at JackRabbit.com. You’ll have to poke through to find what colors are on sale, but all the items below are an excellent place to start. — Meg Lappe grey_placeholder

Google Nest Hub
Save $70: The Google Nest Hub is one of the best smart displays you can buy and right now you can buy one on eBay for over half off. (Google still sells them for $129 a pop.) It works just like a Google Home smart speaker — it can play music, tell you about the news or weather, set alarms, and control your smart home devices – but the addition of its 7-inch touchscreen gives it extra abilities; you can ask “Hey Google” to show you videos on YouTube, directions on Google Maps, or live feeds from your Nest security cameras. The Google Nest Hub also integrates seamlessly with Google Photos and can work as a digital picture frame when idle. The other neat thing is that Google Nest Hub does not have a camera, so you can be comfortable placing it on your nightstand and using it as a smart alarm clock. — Tucker Bowe

Today’s Best Deals: Savings on a Device for Less Distracted Sleep, a Big Motorcycle Helmet Sale & More

Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at deals@gearpatrol.com.

A lot of us have issues staying asleep, tossing and turning all through the night, but a good night sleep is crucial for our health and well-being. When in fitful sleep, it can be easy to grab your phone or check the time to see if you should just get up and start the day. That is why Mark Zuckerberg came up with a concept to help his wife’s sleep and shared his idea in a Facebook post — of course. Based on his idea, Zucklight was created — a sleep box designed to help you sleep through the night without distractions. The concept is simple, a small sleep box emits a faint light during specific periods of the night — all set through an intuitive smartphone app — to notify whether you can try to get some more shut-eye or it’s time to wake up. So if you happen to wake up in the middle of the night, you can return to sleep without having to check the time. You can grab the Zucklight in three different models that include a wireless charging station, environmental sensors and even a sound system, so it can perfectly fit your needs. Right now, you can get up to 50% off if you pre-order through Zucklight’s Kickstarter campaign.

Take the Orient Mako XL Automatic dive watch as a case in point: you get an in-house, 21-jewel automatic movement with 40 hours of power reserve, a stainless steel 44.5mm case, a mineral crystal, steel bracelet, day-date display, unidirectional rotating bezel, 200m of water resistance, and the choice of 5 dial colors: black with black bezel, black with green bezel, blue with blue bezel, black with orange bezel and vaguely-yellowish-greenish-mintish with black bezel (+$15).

Save 33%: Good luggage is worth investing in. Not only will it keep your possessions safe and secure, but it will also reduce stress while traveling (read: no more struggling with awkward bags). Take the Tumi V3 International Carry-On: It has an incredibly lightweight design with 360-degree swiveling wheels and an impact-resistant X-Brace 45 telescoping handle. Featuring an interior U-zip pocket and a hanger bracket, this suitcase is water-resistant and has a two-way zip closure with an integrated TSA lock. Normally $595, you can pick it up for 33 percent off today at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale — that means it’s just $398. And, if you’d rather have a bag with a cloth shell, the sale also features two great options from the Alpha 3 collection starting at $502. — John Zientek grey_placeholder

Seiko “Samurai” SRPC07
Save 50%: A distinctive angular case and legible dial have made the Samurai is one of Seiko’s most popular watch families. This version has a popping dial in a bright orange to brighten up your wrist, and it’s capable enough for even the roughest or wettest activities this summer with 200 meters of water-resistance. A strong value at its normal retail price of $525, the Seiko “Samurai” SRPC07 is currently going for half that on Amazon. You won’t find it for much less. — Oren Hartov grey_placeholder

Stasher Reusable Snack Bag
Save 20%: Since their debut in 2016, Stasher’s self-sealing platinum silicone bags have garnered widespread recognition, including Red Dot and Global Innovation awards.

Incredible High-End Motorcycle Helmet Sale
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 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 $700 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

The fully seam-sealed jacket packs up into its own pocket so you can easily toss in a hiking bag or weekender to fend off any future storms. A NanoPro membrane is Marmot’s environmentally-friendly alternative to DWR that’s still breathable. If you need a lightweight and easy to store rain jacket, now’s the best time to buy one that you’ll have for years to come. — Meg Lappe grey_placeholder

Foehn Brise Short
Save 20%: Foehn may describe itself as a rock climbing apparel company, and it may have come together when its designer-founder, Anthony Boronowski, sought a pair of pants that skillfully combined style and function. But Foehn’s products have always been for much more than scaling granite walls — its Nelson pant is stylish enough for city wear, and its Robson Down Hoody is perfect for winter commuting. The same is true for the company’s newest product, the Brise Short.

The Brise Short channels the same design philosophies that Boronowski demanded of his first pants: that they be as functional as possible while sacrificing nothing in terms of style. So he made the shorts using a four-way stretch fabric, a comfortable waistband, laser-cut, bonded hems. That taped zipper pocket on the thigh is accessible while wearing a climbing harness but also serves as a handy place to stash anything you don’t need at your side. I’ve been wearing these shorts all summer and have yet to rope up in them. Instead, I lounge in them, run in them, travel in them and wear them to work. They’ve also become my go-to for hiking. — Tanner Bowden

Seiko Samurai Dive Watch
Save 25%: Many watch enthusiasts cut their teeth on mechanical Seiko dive watches because they are some of the best values in the watch industry. Take, for example, this Prospex SRPB55 “Samurai.” It’s has a full 200-meter depth rating (meeting ISO’s standard for divers), an in-house automatic movement, a waffle-textured dial and a case with a black ion finish. Yet you can get all of this for just $525 — except right now on Amazon, the watch is selling at a 25 percent discount, meaning you can get this hard-hitting diver for only $394. — Oren Hartov

G&L Limited Edition Tribute ASAT Electric Guitar
Save 40%: In 1979, legendary electric guitar designer Leo Fender started a new brand called G&L with two former Fender executives. His goal was to improve upon Fender’s iconic designs with better pickups, bridges and construction. More recently, the brand established its Tribute series, offering affordable takes on the upgraded instruments.

Today at Guitar Center, you can pick up a G&L Limited Edition Tribute ASAT Classic Ash Body guitar for 40 percent off at Guitar Center, this $500 guitar costs just $300. It’s practically a steal, so act fast — the deal will be gone before you know it. — John Zientek



Dainese Misano D-Air Perforated Jacket
Save 48%: In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, motorcycles aren’t as safe as cars. No matter how much defensive and proactive riding we do, life on two wheels out on the open road is inherently more dangerous than driving. The best thing motorcycle riders can do to keep themselves safe, then, is wearing the right gear — an armored jacket, pants, boots and gloves — to stave off possible injury. Dainese took a giant leap forward with its top-of-the-line riding gear incorporating the D-Air system. And right now, you can get the Misano D-Air Perforated Jacket for $700 less than it normally costs.

Using a wireless airbag system, microprocessor, internal sensors and a GPS system, a D-Air equipped jacket can determine if an accident is imminent and deploy extra protection in less than 15 milliseconds to protect the riders shoulders, collarbone and body. The inflated airbags will also mitigate helmet roll in an accident, keeping your lid from making direct contact with the collarbone. It’s a technology only top-level MotoGP riders and racers had access to until recently, but now it’s available for street riding…and right now, it’s 41% off. — Bryan Campbell

Hydro Flask Journey Series Hydration Backpack
Save $60: When Hydro Flask, the maker of some of our favorite water bottles, revealed its first hydration backpack, we were impressed. We weren’t surprised though — it’s no shocker that a company focused on providing the best ways to carry water would do a pack justice. The Journey Series Hydration Pack uses a reflective neoprene sleeve to keep a full bladder cold for hours. Hydro Flask made the bag with a tough waterproof fabric, and it’s suspended with a comfortable mesh back panel that provides lots of airflow (to help your back from getting too sweaty). The pack is brand new this year, but as part of Huckberry’s summer clearance sale, you can pick one up for 30 percent off. — Tanner Bowden


Finex 12-Inch Cast-Iron Skillet
Save $66: Finex’s quirky, octagonal cast-iron skillets have earned the brand a larger following than any of its boutique cast-iron cookware competition. Beyond the famous eight corners, the pans are known for a perfectly smooth cooking surface, steel coil handle and above-average weight. The biggest knock against it? Steep retail prices. Today on Drop, get the 12-inch skillet (with a lid) for $66 less than its normal $275. — Will Price
