Steelcase Gesture Office Chair
Save $208: Office furniture and Steelcase may as well be synonymous. And though Steelcase may not be the maker of the office chair (by most accounts, that would be Herman Miller’s Aeron), its Gesture seating was and is a game-changer.
Gesture was released five years ago, and represented something of a shift in how Steelcase viewed products for office use. Mostly, it showed the company understood the office worker of real life is not an android — more simply, people naturally slouch, bend, lean and sit on chairs how they please, not how models in a showroom might.
Wirecutter, who named the Gesture the best office chair you can buy, wrote this of it: “One of the most adjustable chairs available — anyone can make the Gesture comfortable, regardless of their height or size—and built to last.”
The gist is it’s built to automatically adjust to you and how you sit at different points in the day at work, and today it is more than $200 off its usual price on Amazon, good for its lowest price ever. — Will Price
Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex Jacket
Save 33%: Any long adventure or touring ride will inevitably see a broad spectrum of weather. It might be sweltering riding through a desert during the day, but you better believe the temperatures will drop as quickly as the sun sets. And if your altimeter reading is on the rise so are your chances of seeing multiple seasons along the way — you don’t want to be caught unprepared. — Bryan Campbell
J. Crew All Stars Sale
Save up to 57%: If you’re always admiring the window display at J. Crew (and maybe flinching at some of the price tags) we’ve got something for you — a smattering of great warm-weather styles, on sale this week.
Freshen up your summer look with some of our top picks below, and make sure to shop the rest of the sale while you’re there.
Fly Fishing Essentials On Sale
Save up to 50%: Fly fishing is typically thought of as a kind of “gentleman’s sport,” mainly because it can get really costly really fast. And for those of us who don’t live anywhere near a decent stream or river, it’s likely to involve some travel, too. But you don’t need to blow a month’s salary on gear to hit the daily limit on rainbow trout — you just need to get out there and, ideally, be smarter than the fish. And with a basic lineup like this one you’ll be spinning line in no time.
BackCountry has a big, big sale going on right now, and it’s got everything you need to go from streets to stream (or boardroom to boulder wall, for that matter). Check out our list of fly fishing essentials, and shop the rest of the sale to pick up anything you need for hiking, camping, climbing or skiing.
