The Orient Bambino
Save $190: The Orient Bambino is a stalwart low-cost favorite amongst many watch enthusiasts for pairing an automatic, hacking and hand winding-capable movement with a clean, vintage-inspired design. You also get a domed dial and crystal, and a date at 3 o’clock, all at a relatively low price.
How low? Well, normally, the watch retails for around $300, but you can usually find the Bambino for sale online at a decent price cut. Huckberry, for instance, has 14 different versions of the Bambino on sale for between $110 and $125, including the 40.5mm Versions 1-3 and the 42mm version 4. — Oren Hartov

This Chelsea boot style features a brown leather upper, a heel pull-tab and a rubber lug sole. Made in the USA, it’s comfortable, durable and good-looking — it’s also just $100. — John Zientek
The North Face Ventrix Jacket
Save $76: Last year, when The North Face revealed Ventrix, its first take on active insulation, we were skeptical. Active insulation, a form of synthetic insulation that’s meant to be worn during activity and is highly breathable, isn’t new — if anything, The North Face was quite late to the game. But Ventrix is different; its fluffy structure is perforated with tiny holes that close and expand as the body moves, allowing for dynamic temperature regulation.
It’s an awesome concept, but again, when we first heard about it, we weren’t sold. But then we tried Ventrix — on hikes and ski tours and just around town — and it worked. It worked really well actually, so we included it on our list of Best Synthetic Down Jackets of 2018. We continue to stand by that choice even more so now that The North Face has expanded the scope of Ventrix into a variety of jackets (and a pair of wild-looking shorts) for 2019.
It’s still the most innovative iteration of active insulation we’ve seen, and right now you can even snag the original jacket in last season’s colors for $76 off. — Tanner Bowden
