We’ve made some new adjustments to Today in Gear, including a new publishing time of 4 p.m. in order to capture all the day’s new stories. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at [email protected].
New & Noteworthy Releases
Backcountry Is Offering an Extra 20% off Gear from Brands You Love
Save up to 60%: Want to stock up on some of the best outdoor gear of the year? You have until midnight. — Tanner Bowden
Asics Semi-Annual Sale
Save up to 50%: Asics’ semi-annual sale is in full swing with up to 50% off on all sneakers, apparel and gear. The best part is that you can buy almost all of the sneakers for less than $100. And if there’s one thing Asics shines at, it’s creating cushioned, supportive and durable sneakers. With a sale like this, it’s worth thinking about stocking up on your favorite model, since with each release comes a slight tweak in design that can change everything about the feel. — Meg Lappe
Canon DSLR Cameras
Save up to $800: Canon has long set the bar for full-frame DSLR cameras. They’re used by some of our favorite adventure photographers, as well as amateurs, too, and we recommend them for anybody in the market for great DSLR at a relatively low price. Neither of Canon’s 6D and 5D Mark III DSLRs are the latest and greatest (both are several years old), but they’re still fantastic cameras and now they’re at the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. You can pick up the 6D (body only) for $999 on Adorama, which is $700 off its normal $1,700 MSRP. Or you can buy the 5D Mark III (body only) on B&H Photo for $1,999, which is $800 off its normal $2,799 MSRP.
Both of the above are good deals and we’re not sure how long they’ll last. Also, since both deals are “body only,” we’ve found a great deal on Amazon for an advanced two-lens kit (with 50mm f/1.4 and 17-40mm f/4L lens) — save $300 here. — Tucker Bowe
Velomacchi Holiday Weekend Sale
Save 25%:Now that most of the country is starting to thaw, not only does it look like the groundhog got it wrong about the extended winter, but riding season will be upon us sooner rather than later. The perfect opportunity to head over to Velomacchi and save 25% sitewide when you use the code ‘SPRINGRIDE25’ at check out. Pick up a tough as nails weekender backpack or a pair of Denali Highway-tested Speedway Gloves today, because the offer expires at midnight tonight PST. — Bryan Campbell
Mystery Ranch Bags
Save Up to $45: Mystery Ranch’s largest single client is the U.S. military. That should be all the convincing you need to pick up a bag from the makers of what many argue to be the most rugged gear available — that, and the fact that it’s on sale now.
A collection of the Montana-based company’s bags are currently discounted on Huckberry. The best deal pertains to the Mission Wheelie, available in two sizes: 40 and 80 liters. The body is built with 1000D Cordura — an uber-tough, rigorously-tested fabric — hardened by a thermo-polyurethane coating. — Will Price
Cuisinart 8-Cup Food Processor
Save Almost 70%: If you’re a home cook and you’re without a food processor, you’re doing something wrong. Unless you’re cool with milkshakes that taste like hummus or fruit smoothies with a tinge of leftover pesto, we recommend hopping on this mega deal for Cuisinart’s 8-cup food processor. It features reversible blade spinning, 350 watts of power and removable, easy-to-clean pieces. Oh, and it’s $120 off. — Will Price
GoPro HERO5 Session Camera
Save $50 (25%): GoPro might have pulled out of the drone race — its Karma drone was discontinued earlier in 2018, although the company will continue selling them until they’re sold out (it has also pledged to continue support for drones in the future) — but its action cameras are still the best that money can buy. The HERO6 Black is GoPro’s latest and greatest, but that also means that you can find some killer deals on older-gen cameras. The compact HERO5 Session, for example, which can shoot 4K video at 30 frames per second and take 10MP still photos, normally goes for $200 — you can get one for $50 off on eBay today. It’s a certified refurbished model, mind you, but GoPro’s traditional one-year warranty still applies. This eBay’s spotlight deal of the day, so don’t expect it to last long. — Tucker Bowe
