Today, You Can Save 52% On Fjällräven’s Most Classic Jacket
Save $105: “We have new fabrics and new materials, but when something works, we’re not afraid of keeping it and staying true to that,” said Henrik Andersson, Fjällräven’s head of Innovation & Design. He was referring to the Swedish outdoor brand’s G-1000 fabric, which is a blend of recycled polyester and organic cotton that is infused with the brand’s proprietary wax blend called Greenland Wax. The material is quintessential Fjällräven, and its potential is perhaps best exemplified in the brand’s classic Greenland Jacket.
The jacket was first introduced in 1968 and was among the first products that Fjällräven’s founder, Åke Nordin, developed. The original jacket was crafted from a heavy-duty material that Nordin was using to build tents. The jacket was touted for its durability by climbers. Today, it’s appreciated by city dwellers and outdoorsman the world over. If you need a lightweight jacket that’s versatile enough for anything that you can throw at it, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better option. Today, you can pick up the Greenland Jacket for 52 percent pff at Mountain Steals in a variety of colors and sizes. — AJ Powell
Converse Jack Purcell Sneaker
Save 51%: Canadian badminton ace Jack Purcell designed his eponymous canvas sneaker back in the 1930s. Over the past eight decades, the style has gone essentially unchanged. It features a lightweight canvas upper, a rubber outsole with a signature ‘smile’ across the toe and medial eyelets for breathability. In the crispy white colorway, it’s an essential summer sneaker: breathable, lightweight, casual. Normally $65, the style is 51 percent off at Nordstrom Rack and now costs just $32. A range of sizes are still available but act fast because they’re selling quickly. — John Zientek
Bose SoundLink Revolve and Revolve Plus Speaker
Save up to $30: Bose’s newest and best-sounding portable Bluetooth speakers, the SoundLink Revolve (
$199 $179) and the SoundLink Revolve Plus ( $299 $269), were released just over a year ago, in Spring 2017. The new models differ drastically in design and size of Bose’s previous portable Bluetooth speakers, the SoundLink Mini II ($180) and SoundLink III (now discontinued), as they’re the company’s first cylindrical-shaped Bluetooth speakers. Yes, they play true 360-degree sound, just like an Amazon Echo, but they sound way better. They’re also splash-proof (IPX4), which the Echo is not. The difference between the Revolve and Revolve Plus is the latter is bigger, more powerful and more expensive; it also comes with a handle.
On Amazon right now, both speakers are on sale.
