Clarks Wallabee Shoes
Save 30%: Right now, you can save 30 percent on a pair of shoes favorited by style insiders: the Clarks Wallabee in the cola suede colorway is now $95 at End. The moc-toe shoe is both water and stain resistant and has an easy-wearing crepe sole. While the style is a staple of Clarks portfolio, it’s also the darling of a number style experts and streetwear brands. In recent years, collaborations that riff on the Wallabee silhouette have included OVO (Drake’s collective), Concepts and Supreme. If you want to pick up this iconic shoe for a solid deal, don’t miss this sale. — John Zientek
Solstice Sunglasses Sale
Save 25%: Head over to Solstice Sunglasses to pick up a pair for 25 percent off. We’re partial to the Persol and Oliver Peoples sunglasses — athletic enough to not fall off your face when you sweat or walk around town. The discount is automatically applied at checkout, plus for every $100 you spend, you get a free gift — think beach towels and totes. So you can get back to your fête in style.

Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 Compression
Save $295: Back in 1953, Zodiac debuted the Super Sea Wolf alongside the Rolex Submariner and Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms, making it one of the first modern dive watches ever built. Today, Zodiac still makes the watch, and compared to the competition it’s a decidedly more affordable option with a $1,195 MSRP (it’s also one of our favorite summertime divers). For that, you get a 200-meter depth rating, an automatic movement and a handsome vintage design that’s not very far off the original. Right now, though, Huckberry is offering a $295 markdown from MSRP, meaning you can get this slick vintage-style diver for just $900. Two references are available: one in black and another in a very summer-appropriate blue. — Andrew Connor
Outdoor and Patio Furniture
Save Up to 65%: If you are a person who needs outdoor furniture not to show off your taste in quality or design, but for the express purpose of having a place to sit when the temperature is right, Wayfair’s July 4th Blowout is the sale for you. Your priorities are more in line with naps on a cushy couch than the quality of furniture in your patio and outdoor space, I get it, so feast on 65 percent off a slew of already affordable outdoor setups, including a stupidly cheap rust-proof aluminum dining setup. — Will Price
Rubber & NATO Straps
Save Up to 70%: With summer upon us, rubber and nylon straps become a nice alternative to heavy steel bracelets – they’re cheap, they’re made for all kinds of adverse (and wet) conditions, and they’re generally inexpensive. CheapestNatoStraps.com, a company selling all different types of watch straps including leather, NATO and rubber and based in Stockholm, Sweden, is running a clearance sale that includes some very summer-appropriate, vintage-inspired straps and bands at 30-70% off. Though their standard “20% off 5 or more straps”-discount doesn’t apply to clearance items, it certainly applies to the rest of their inventory, and since shipping is free on orders of $25 or more, it’s worth poking around the rest of their website – even their full-price straps are a bargain. — Oren Hartov
The North Face Gear You’ve Always Wanted Is Now on Sale
Save 30%: The North Face quietly launched a summer sale on its website, with 30 percent discounts on everything from t-shirts and bathing suits for summer to down jackets and technical shells you’d use to climb Denali. — Tanner Bowden
Ray-Ban Wayfarer Polarized Sunglasses
Save 57%: In the world of sunglasses, it doesn’t get much more iconic than a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. First introduced in 1956, the design hasn’t changed that much in over half a century. If you’ve been wanting the style, but the list price is more than you want to spend, Nordstrom Rack has you covered. You can get a pair of $188 Wayfarers in a Light Havana colorway for just $80. What’s more, these Italian-made shades also come with polarized lenses to protect your eyes all summer long — hard to beat that. — John Zientek
Nemo Equipment Stargaze Recliner
Save 25%: Camp chairs often mean compromise. How do you get seating to fit into a backpack? Usually, it involves trading in comfort for lightweight portability, or vice versa. Even the bigger chairs that are common at tailgates and cookouts often don’t supply the long-term support that they promise. Enter Nemo Equipment’s Stargaze Recliner, a new, free-swinging camp chair that balances comfort and packability.
The Stargaze, unlike the outdoor chairs the keep sitters close to the ground, has its seat suspended between a set of lightweight aluminum poles. The construction creates an experiential cross between a hammock and a rocking chair and maintains essential features including an integrated pocket (for a book, phone or keys) and a cup holder (what’s a camp chair without one?).
The Stargaze weighs just under six pounds, so it’s not the ideal choice for backpacking but is more than suitable for car camping and boating. Nobody would blame you for giving the chair a semi-permanent spot in your backyard either. You can pick one up right now for 25 percent off at Backcountry’s massive gear sale. If you’re planning on hosting a Fourth of July gathering and need additional seating, the Stargaze Recliner is a good option that you can stash away after the party’s over. — Tanner Bowden
Summer Swimwear From Need Supply
Save Up To 70%: July 4th is less than a week away, and the hottest months of the year are about to steamroll all of us. If you plan to avoid public pools and crowded beaches, we can’t exactly blame you — but you’d be better off embracing the season you’re in. Pick up a great new pair of trunks, for example, and get after that sun-kissed complexion (plus, like, maybe a few daiquiris).
Need Supply’s summer sale is chock full of kick-ass deals, and one thing you can find far cheaper than usual is some stylish swimwear. Save up to 70 percent on shorts from Saturdays NYC, Dries Van Noten and more. — Andy Frakes
Saturdays Summer Sale
Save 40%: Is your wardrobe feeling a little stale? If so, take this mid-point of the year to invest in some new well-made basics; adding to the core of your wardrobe will give your style a fresh perspective heading into the second half of the year. If you’re looking for a range of options that are relatively affordable, head over to Saturdays and save up to 40 percent on a range of garments. Currently, SS18 and PS18 collections are reduced and you can pick from tees, sweatshirts, shorts and more. Explore a few of our favorites below to jumpstart your wardrobe refresh. — John Zientek
Columbia Watertight II Jacket
Save 25%: Columbia needs no introduction. It has been one of the brands at the top of the outdoor gear totem pole for decades, and for a good reason. Name a season, name a layer and Columbia has you covered. So, as far as summer rains are concerned, you need not worry because the Watertight II Jacket is the protection from the elements you want. The nylon Omni-Tech outer shell is not only seamless and watertight (it’s in the name), it also blocks any wind — it’s essentially stormproof. Another neat feature is it’s self-storing and packs up into its own pocket. Today, you can get the Watertight II Jacket for 25% off at just $45. That’s a pretty good deal for something that should be standard issue for on-scene weather reporters. — Bryan Campbell
Bell Moto III
Save 28%: I don’t exactly know when or where the Bell Moto III becsme my go-to motorcycle helmet, but I just recently realized I keep picking it up over the others, time and time again. It might be Bell Helmet’s most iconic lid, which explains why they brought the design back into production. Simple styling mid-century styling, modern protection, no frills — what more could you ask for? And today it’s on sale at only $210. — Bryan Campbell
Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots
Save 50%: Now at Huckberry, you can save 50 percent on quality Italian-made Chelsea boots from Astorflex. The Bitflex boot now costs just $90 and features an eco-friendly suede upper and crepe sole. If you’re looking for a versatile good-looking boot that is affordable and ethically made, it doesn’t get much better than this. — John Zientek
A Ton of Awesome Hiking Gear Is Discounted Right Now
Save up to 40%: Summer’s longest day has come and gone, but there’s still plenty of time to take advantage of the warmer weather and hit the trail. If you need to round out your hiking kit or get a new one entirely, you can do so for up to 40 percent off at Backcountry right now. — Tanner Bowden
Fjallraven No.4 Large 50-Liter Duffel
Save 35%: Fjallraven, the maker of some of the most stylish yet simplistic and performance driven outdoor gear on the market, is one of our favorite brands — pretty much for the reasons mentioned above. Bags like this 50-liter duffel bag make the perfect weekender whether you’re heading into the wilds of northern Sweden or just out of town for some R&R. The G-1000 HD fabric construction makes the No.4 tough as nails for outdoor excursions while the minimalist design, leather accents and leather straps that double as backpack straps make it incredibly user-friendly, even when packed to capacity. Today, you can get the No.4 Large 50-Liter Duffel by Fjallraven at 35 percent off and save $63. An incredible deal for an equally incredible piece of kit. — Bryan Campbell
Champion + Todd Snyder T-Shirt
Save $21: The New York designer Todd Snyder is largely known for his range of tasteful collaborations with heritage brands like Red Wing, Timex and Champion. Case in point: the Champion + Todd Snyder Classic T-Shirt, made in Toronto from soft eight-ounce slub-cotton jersey. It features a self-fabric bound neck, sand-colored stitching and a trim fit. Now 48 percent off, you can save $21 on this tee is the Rugged Green colorway — that’s substantial savings on what is essentially the perfect summer t-shirt. — John Zientek
Every Home Good Ever
Save Up to 70%: Whether furnishing your new apartment, home, AirBnB, pool house or any other space in which a human might dwell, there is a deal you should know about — a deal that has kitchen appliances, couches, mattress frames and quite literally anything else that goes in a house marked down up to 70 percent. And free shipping.
That deal is Wayfair’s July 4th Blowout, and it started this morning, with loads of brands — some familiar, some new. Frankly, summarizing what’s worth grabbing is a tall order. All the same, below are a few of our favorite bargains, but this is a sale worth blocking out some time and sinking your teeth into. — Will Price
Solo Stove Fire Pit
Save $100: Though there is a degree of majesty and satisfaction in a fire you build piece-by-piece, sometimes it’s best to let engineers figure the most efficient, safest and overall best way to do something. That is the gap Solo Stove’s portable fire pit fills.
It’s as tall as your forearm and as wide as your computer monitor and as heavy as a beagle, and it saves you time spent clearing a space for a fire, tending to a fire and cleaning up that space the following morning. It also isn’t gaudy, unlike many home fire pits out there, making it perfectly capable to throw down in your backyard. Holes in the base and top of the pit allow air to reach the fire and feed a hotter, more consistent blaze. The higher heat and superior ventilation also cuts down on smoke, so you’re less likely to have your neighbors call the cops on you.
The Solo Stove fire pit is on sale now at $250, $100 off its usual price. — Will Price
Clarks Desert Welt Boot
Save $76: Sold since the early 50s, the Clarks Desert Boot has graced the feet of style icons for more than half a century. It’s famously known for its soft suede upper and casual crepe sole, but those who find the look to be somewhat unsophisticated might like to learn the company makes a high-end version of the classic boot, one with a Goodyear-welted leather outsole and luxury suede upper.
Of course, the upgrade will demand a pretty penny — 38,000 of them, actually — but East Dane slashed more than $70 off the asking price. Can’t find your size? Clarks is also running a sale on clarksusa.com. — Jack Seemer
Zeal Draper Sunglasses
Right now, you can get a pair Draper Sunglasses for 65% off. And, not only will you be saving $150 on a pair of seriously stylish shades — the Japanese cypress wood accents knock it out of the park — the E-llume polarized lenses are the world’s first to use plant-based materials instead of petroleum. It’s hard to beat environmentally friendly fashion that actually looks good. — Bryan Campbell
TRX Slam Balls
Save up to 40%: A functional home gym doesn’t have to require setting aside a spare bedroom and filling it with heavy and bulky, not to mention expensive, equipment. Actually, it can be small enough to pack into a suitcase or backpack and set up virtually anywhere. This was the hypothesis that lead Randy Hetrick, a Navy SEAL Squad Commander, to use a jiu-jitsu belt and parachute webbing to create a set-up-anywhere suspension trainer while on deployment. Twenty years later and Hetrick has refined that into a brand called TRX that creates products trusted by fitness buffs to professional athletes.
In addition to the all-in-one strap system, TRX makes a range of items designed to build out a minimal home gym and complement your weight-bearing routine. Among the expanded collection are Slam Balls — durable medicine balls covered in textured rubber for maximum grip. These fitness tools are a simple way to enhance a workout, and they’ll do it for much less than the cost of a gym membership. Right now, 10-, 15- and 20-pound Slam Balls are on sale at Huckberry for 37-40 percent off, which drops them down into the $20 range. — Tanner Bowden
Brooks Brothers Summer Sale
Save up to 40%: Off-season sales are an ideal time to invest in multi-season wardrobe classics that you can wear for years to come. A great example is the Brooks Brothers Summer Sale, where discounts are up to 40 percent on a range of well-made garments. Pick from blazers, shirts, shoes and more, but don’t wait because the sale ends on July 8. — John Zientek
Allen Edmonds Bourbon and Merlot Collection Sale
Save over 40%: A quality pair of dress shoes is often a sizable investment. If you’re in need of a reputable pair but have been waiting for a good sale, Allen Edmonds has you covered. You can now save over 40 percent on classic styles from the Bourbon and Merlot collection. The sale includes wingtips, cap-toes, penny loafers and more, so there’s something for everyone. Savings are substantial — the iconic $425 McAllister Wingtip is now selling for $249 — and styles are timeless, so there’s no better time to buy. — John Zientek
Design Within Reach Midsummer Sale
Save Up to 70%: There’s no lack of levels in the strata of furniture design. From Ikea to Herman Miller to custom pieces, there are options for every taste at every price point — but most every design style has an origin or a standard that got it off the ground. These are the products furniture outlet Design Within Reach deals in. And as you might expect, these types of products aren’t often discounted.
Hence why DWR’s Midsummer Sale is worth a few minutes of your time. The high design retailer has cut prices on outdoor furniture, lighting, bar stools and virtually every in-between and adjacent category.
The mountain of discounted design wares is on sale now and until July 10. — Will Price
Classic Items from Patagonia
Save More Than 30%: Patagonia may be the most iconic outdoor brand in the world, and rightly so. Right now some of its most well-known products, including its famous Synchilla fleece pullover, are on sale for over 30 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
FRONTEER Ahwahnee Hiker
Save $110: In case you missed it, last week we published an interview with footwear designer Jon Tang, otherwise known as the brains and brawn behind the outdoor lifestyle footwear brand FRONTEER. Tang had previously worked for Puma and other shoe companies for over a decade before using that experience, along with a penchant for adventure and a love of NASA, to build shoes inspired by the outdoors. (To read the full interview with Tang, click here.)
One of those shoes, the Ahwahnee Hiker, is currently available at Backcountry for 65 percent off. That brings the price from $170 down to just $60, which is a huge discount, especially considering that FRONTEER is a small brand that prizes craftsmanship and quality over large-scale production.
The Ahwahnee is also the epitome of the new category of outdoor lifestyle gear (and was featured in our latest magazine story about the topic, which you can read here). It looks like a hiking boot, but is built for the everyday use and is suitable for life in towns and cities. — Tanner Bowden
Niner RIP 9 RDO XT Complete Mountain Bike
Save 30%: It doesn’t take long to figure out that a quality mountain bike can cost a small fortune — they land in the same price range as some used cars, after all. SO when a complete bike like the carbon fiber Niner RIP 9 RDO XT goes on sale, it’s an opportunity not to be missed.
The Niner RIP 9 RDO XT is ideal for the rockier trails you’ll likely come across. Not only is it able to take three-inch wide 27.5-inch tires in the back as well as 29-inch tires, but the CVA suspension also allows you nearly six-inches of suspension travel — all come together to give you an incredibly controlled ride. Right now, you can head over to Backcountry and save nearly $1600 off the Niner RIP 9 RDO XT’s regular price of $5600. This might be the deal of the season. — Bryan Campbell
