TRX Slam Ball Sale
Save 15% There’s never been a better time to upgrade your home gym. While you don’t need much to get it going, we’re big fans of the TRX (after all the Navy SEALS use it) and its corresponding tools. The TRX will help you improve strength, coordination and overall fitness. And to hit those high-intensity goals, TRX created a variety of gear you can also use to up your burn and sweat levels. The TRX training slam ball is one of those accessories that will help you push yourself past your current limits. — Meg Lappe
The North Face Base Camp Duffel Sale
Save 25% Whether you’re heading to Colorado for a ski trip or out to Jackson for some backcountry skinning and split-boarding, you’re going to need a durable duffel. The North Face’s Base Camp duffel is one of those time-tested bags that hasn’t changed much over the years, mostly because the original was pretty awesome. It’s of the best adventure duffels available thanks to an exterior of laminated ballistic nylon and a spacious main compartment. This durable duffel is a purchase you’ll never regret. — Meg Lappe | |
Sony-WH-1000XM2 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $168:Most retailers still sell Sony’s WH-1000XM2 headphones for $348 — like on Amazon — which is actually crazy considering Sony’s WH-1000XM3 headphones are the exact same price. That said, good deals on the WH-1000XM2 headphones are becoming more common. For example, one of the best deals we’ve seen is running right now on eBay — its selling WH-1000XM2 headphones for $180, which is almost half off. It should be noted that these are “manufacturer refurbished” models, but eBay has an excellent 30-day returns policy if you have any issues. Both black and silver models are available.
Furniture from Target
Save Up to 60% Target’s Home section is worthy of praise. The mega-retailer’s unlikely blend of frugality, surprising quality and clean looks is refreshing.
Today, a host of its already-cheap furniture is discounted even further. We’re talking couch for just over $100 cheap. —Will Price
Hestra Arthur Gloves
Save 52%:When it comes to leather gloves, Swedish brand Hestra makes some of the best for any activity. While the brand offers a range of rugged alpine skiing and mountaineering gloves, it also produces a line of dress gloves appropriate for daily use in the city.
The Arthur model is a quintessential example of this style. The glove is cut from hairsheep suede — sourced from the high altitude regions of Ethiopia, then tanned and dyed in Naples — and is lined with wool to keep your hands warm in freezing temperatures. It features elastic at the wrist for a secure fit and is handsewn throughout utilizing a technique perfected in the 17th century.
Normally $125, these gloves are now 52 percent off at Nordstrom Rack and cost just $60. They’re available in sizes S through XL, so if you’re in need of a new pair of winter gloves for everyday use, don’t pass on this sale.
