Duer knows a thing or two about making comfortable and stylish garments. Its No Sweat T-Shirts are a no-brainer when you are looking to stock up on some new elevated basics. More than just your average tee, DUER’s T-shirt is crafted like its bottoms with high stretch, low synthetic blend of cotton, Tencel and spandex fibers so the shirt moves with you. It is patterned with an underarm gusset for even more range of movement and a slim fit in the body for a more cleaned up look. But the real knock out of the DUER No Sweat T-Shirts is the natural wicking performance of the brand’s N2X fabric so you stay dry when you get busy. Give the DUER No Sweat T-Shirt a try, you might end up grabbing a few more.

Save Up to 16%: Fluance is a Canadian audio company that makes some of the best entry-level turntables and bookshelf speakers you can buy. And right now through September 16, you can get a great deal on its entry-level turntables if you shop on Amazon. The Fluance RT81 (
$250 $210), which is most review publications’ pick for “best entry-level turntable,” and the Fluance RT80 ( $200 $170) are both on sale. The main difference between the two is that the RT81 has a solid wood plinth, as opposed to the RT80’s hollow one, so it’s better at preventing vibrations. The two turntables have a built-in preamp that you can turn on or off, enabling you to buy upgraded external pre-amp further down the road if you so decide. ?
Additionally, the Fluance Ai40 (
$250 $210) powered bookshelf speakers are also on sale, but only in black. — Tucker Bowe

Normally priced over $800, you can currently pick up a pair of these cult-classic boots for under $500 while supplies last. — John Zientek
Solo Stove Portable Fire Pit
Save 15%: Though there is a degree of satisfaction in a fire you build piece-by-piece, Solo Stove’s portable fire pits make a patio burn a lot simpler.
It’s as tall as your forearm and as wide as your computer monitor and as heavy as a beagle, and it saves you time spent clearing a space for a fire, tending to a fire and cleaning up that space the following morning. It also isn’t gaudy, unlike many home fire pits out there, making it perfectly capable to throw down in your backyard. Holes in the base and top of the pit allow air to reach the fire and feed a hotter, more consistent blaze. The higher heat and superior ventilation also cut down on smoke, so you’re less likely to have your neighbors call the cops on you.
The Solo Stove fire pit is on sale now for $230 — 15 percent off its usual price.

Save 62%: With an unbeatable style and colorful red-white-and-blue dial, this funky chronograph features Bulova’s High Performance Quartz movement and premium materials like domed sapphire crystal. It also hints at the brand’s roots as an American company that was prolific in the era from which this watch takes its inspiration (’60s-’70s). At 62% off its retail price of $750, it’s also a steal right now on Amazon for just $285. — Zen Love
Breville BDC400 Precision Brewer
Save 43%: Breville’s Precision Brewer coffee maker is the most powerful, advanced coffee maker regular people can buy.
Beyond brewing Gold Cup standard pots of coffee and holding an SCA certification, it lets you customize brewing options like flow rate, bloom time and water temperature. It’s the only coffee maker that can brew with flat bottom filters and cone filters. There’s even an attachment that allows you to insert your favorite pour-over brew device and let the machine do the work. Its heating system warms water as it travels to the shower head, meaning you don’t have to wait minutes for the water to come to temperature and making it literally the fastest coffee maker you can buy.
Its downsides, few that they are, are its size and price. It’s worth comparing its height to the space between your countertop and kitchen cabinets. As for price, the machine is $80 its hefty $300 tag on Ebay right now

The Perfect Waxed Cotton Motorcycle Jacket Is 50% Off
Save 50%: With fall inbound, we’re facing fewer and fewer warm days to ride. The cool weather brings the opportunity to wear most of the coolest motorcycle gear — but before we fully succumb to the leathers and wool, take advantage of the fact that the extremely cool warm-weather-ready Roland Sands Design Ronin perforated textile jacket is currently featured on RevZilla’s weekly sale.
The Ronin, like so much classy café-style gear, is largely composed of waxed cotton to stand up to a number of different weather conditions. It is also lined with a cooling mesh interior. Although it is aimed at the around-town café racer rider, it has some adventure-riding features as well, like stretchy cargo stuff pockets and built-in shoulder and elbow pads. Most notable of all: is the laser cut perforation that keeps things nice and breezy, but still leaves the jacket tough enough to stand up to abrasion.
The Ronin’s cool design (and current sale price of 50% off at RevZilla) will help keep your pits dry during the waning warm months of riding. Or, y’know, you could always buy it now and save it for next spring. — Peter Corn
Kershaw Natrix Pocket Knife
Save 47%: Not all knives initiate with a designer’s sudden burst of inspiration. Some, like Kershaw’s Natrix, are simply the lowest branch on a family tree of blades that came before. Kershaw built the Natrix as a direct descendant of the 0770, which is made by its sister company, Zero Tolerance. And that knife is based on the ZT 0777, which won the award for Overall Knife of the Year at the 2011 Blade Show.
But even without its famous lineage, the Natrix stands on its own as a high-quality pocket knife that strikes a balance between tactical and contemporary aesthetics. It uses Kershaw’s patented Sub-Frame Lock, in which a section of a handle is cut out to allow for a steel insert that bends inward when the blade is deployed to hold it in place, much like a traditional frame lock. It’s a mechanism that allows makers to provide ample security while using different handle materials. For example, this version of the Natrix with copper handles, which is currently 47 percent off at Drop. — Tanner Bowden
