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
