Todd Snyder Annual Spring Sale
Save up to 60%: New York-based retailer Todd Snyder is having its Annual Spring Sale and it’s a strong reason to invest in some wardrobe essentials. Currently, you can save 30 percent on a range of new styles and up to 60 percent on older sale items. If you’ve been waiting to spend on well-made garments, this is the time. — John Zientek
LifeProof Cases for iPhone X
Save 15%: It’s Memorial Day weekend and for many of us that means a little too good of a time. And maybe a dropped iPhone X and $1,000 down the drain. To guard against such an incident, LifeProof is running a 15-percent-off sale on all its smartphone cases (not just iPhone X case). Also, if you’re looking for a rugged portable Bluetooth speaker, you can get 30-percent off all Aquaphonics speakers. The site-wide sale is running now through next Tuesday, the 29th. — Tucker Bowe
Yeti Hopper Backflip
Save $60: Earlier this year, when Yeti announced a new collection of rugged products it was a burly camping chair called the Hondo that became the newsworthy standout. But it wasn’t the only product revealed — the new collection included wine tumblers, a magnetic waterproof pouch, a tote (which may turn out to be a sleeper), and a backpack version of its popular Hopper soft cooler called the Backflip.
Yeti is credited as the originator of the overbuilt, everything-proof hard-sided cooler and owning one has become imbued with a particular symbolic status. The brand has had to live up to its own reputation with every successive product, and its soft coolers were no exception. The Hopper series has done that, with a puncture-resistant soft exterior called DryHide and super-strong leak-proof zippers. Its soft coolers are lighter and notably more portable, which may make them even more effective in providing practical everyday use.
The Backflip gives the Hopper series even more potential with the addition of backpack straps that make carrying a fully-loaded cooler across longer distances more feasible. The Backflip can accommodate 20 cans at a two-to-one can-to-ice ratio and has multiple handles for hauling and additional webbing for lashing.
Sales on Yeti products are rare, especially on something as new as the Hopper Backflip. Right now, however, Backcountry is offering its customers the chance to take 20 percent off one full-priced item during its Memorial Day Sale and the Backflip, one of Yeti’s newest products, is included in the deal. Use the code MEMORIALDAY20 at checkout, or click the small banner at the top of the screen to apply the discount. — Tanner Bowden
Summer Motorcycle Jacket Sale
Save up to 48%: As the temperature rises, it’s always tempting to dress down before heading out for a ride. However, keeping safety as your number one priority, it’s still easy to stay cool — the trick is just wearing the right jacket. Whether you’re a fan of the more technical-styled textile jackets or prefer the old school look of leather, ventilation is critical. You want to save your skin, but you certainly don’t want to melt out of it while stuck traffic. Right now you can save up to 48% over on revzilla.com, just in time for the hotter months and potentially sweatier rides. — Bryan Campbell
