Properly layering when cycling in colder temperatures is a must, and a good technical vest is a staple of that layering process. Velocio’s RECON Vest is an option that packs lightweight warmth for high performance but also brings plenty of off-bike aesthetic.
This bona fide cross-over piece features an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio and a streamlined fit thanks to the use of Polartec HighLoft insulation. It sports reflective elements that are subtle in daylight but shine brightly after dark. A Pertex Quantum mini-ripstop, ultralight windproof front shell makes sure it’s weatherproof, too. With a soft microfleece back panel and collar lining, the RECON can go from a functional, technical piece for colder rides to an everyday favorite that’ll finish any outfit you wear off the bike.
Rev’It Watson Jacket
Save $150: When you invest over $400 into a motorcycle jacket it better be versatile. Rev’It’s City Collection is aimed at not only providing you with protection while riding but also looking stylish off the bike as well. Only a few motorcycle jackets can claim to accomplish that — the Watson goes one step further with removable waterproof and thermal linings making it an ideal jacket for three out of the four seasons. Even at its regular price of $450 you’d certainly get your money’s worth, but today the Watson is 33%, which saves you $150. — Bryan Campbell
Eddie Bauer BC EverTherm Jacket Sale
Save 50$Eddie Bauer sends its athletes and influencers out on the mountains, in the backcountry and all over places that have some of the most extreme weather. In that adventurous spirit, the Eddie Bauer year is built to tackle anything you want to throw at it— including the most inclement weather you might come across. The BC EverTherm jacket uses Thindown, a fabric technology Eddie Bauer developed last year to make its coats lighter and warmer. The feathers all line up in sheets rather than loose clusters, so there’s no need for baffles. The new technology helped this jacket make our best down jackets of 2019 list. — Meg Lappe
Bose SoundTouch 10 Multi-Room Speaker
Save 50%: Even though the Bose SoundTouch 10 (
$200 $100) has been around for a few years, it’s still one of my favorite wireless speakers for the home. It sounds great and it’s dead simple to use. All you do is plug it in, download the app and then connect the speaker to your home’s wi-fi network. It will play music directly from the Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, iTunes or Amazon Music app. It’s basically just like using a Sonos speaker, except if you want to integrate it into a wireless multi-room system, you have to do so with other Bose SoundTouch speakers instead of Sonos speakers. |
Sony MP-CD1 Portable Projector
Save $100: Earlier this year I reviewed the Sony MP-CD1, the company’s 2018-released pico projector that can work with pretty much all the latest laptops, smartphones or gaming consoles to produce a 100-inch screen. It’s straightforward to use. It’s travel-friendly. And it has a decent 2.5-hour battery life. And Sony just dropped the price by $100, so the normally $400 pico projector is now $300.

Cardo SmartPack Headset
Save $200: Standard Bluetooth helmet headsets tend to be limited in that they only have basic functions like taking calls, play music and connect to one or two other headsets. The Cardo SmartPack Headset uses a stronger-than-Bluetooth mesh network to connect up to 15 riders within a massive three-mile range. And along with the basic functions the Cardo SmartPack Headset gives you FM radio, lets you listen to audio instructions from a navigation device and lets you share music with friends on your ride. It’s one of the most advanced systems on the market, and today it’s 40%, saving you $200.— Bryan Campbell
