Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag
Save $50:When Peak Design put The Everyday Messenger together, it certainly made photographers’ day-to-day needs a top priority. With features like dedicated Capture Clip attachment points, a built-in tripod carry feature, an expandable, multi-paneled exterior and “origami-inspired” removable dividers; it makes the accessing gear in a hurry easy and intuitive. Then again, when you work with Tery Ratcliff on a bag, what do you expect?
That’s not to say this 20.5-liter bag isn’t useful if you don’t sling a camera around for a living. The weatherproof waxed shell, adjustable strap and protected laptop sleeve make the Everyday Messenger just as ideal for any commuter. It’s also hard to argue with a design that raised $4.7 million on Kickstarter to earn the title of the site’s Most Successful Camera Bag. — Bryan Campbell
Save $40+: While I’d argue you can never have too much of a great thing, it seems like Lululemon might disagree. The brand made too many sweat-wicking workout pieces, and now it’s all on sale. Everything from backpacks to tees to joggers to sneakers are all offered at discounted prices. With the scorching hot temperatures arriving just in time for the longest day of the year, Lululemon has the freshest gear to keep you dry and stench-free. Some of our top-rated running shirts and gym shorts are included in the massive sale, so get them while you can. We picked out a few favorites to help you get started. — Meg Lappe
Alpinestars Devon Airflow Jacket
Save 18%: When it comes to summer riding and hot weather, it’s easy to be tempted to dress down. But, there’s a reason the saying “dress for the slide, not the ride,” exists. It’s important to keep yourself protected when you ride, and it’s also just as important to not pass out from heat exhaustion. With that said, you don’t need to compromise, all you need is a jacket like the Alpinestars Devon Airflow Jacket.
A Bit of a hybrid jacket, the Devon Airflow utilizes protective leather in areas where you might need it in case of a fall and perforation and mesh where airflow is also critical. As far as summertime riding jackets go, the Devon Airflow rates among the best. — Bryan Campbell
Bellroy XO Wallets
Save 60%: Though not typically something to be shown off (unless you want to robbed), the wallet is the most classic and most essential EDC. Truthfully, it’s the only EDC you need. And because it is the most essential, and because the things it carries may literally be the difference between lunch and no lunch, investing in one that won’t fall apart on you may be worth a second thought.
Enter, enormous discounts on Bellroy and Barney’s New York’s collaborative collection of cardholders, slim wallets and billfolds. The collection is made with eco-friendly (and patina-building) vegetable-tanned leather, hand-painted edges, plenty of color and size options and Bellroy’s trademark owl stamp.
Every wallet in the collection is at least 59 percent off right now on Barney’s site. — Will Price
Save $50: Today is the first time that I’ve seen that you can actually score a pretty good deal on the HomePod. It’s still going for $349 on Apple’s website, but Best Buy is selling the speaker for $299, in both space gray and white colorways. — Tucker Bowe
