It’s not that snacking is inherently bad for you, it’s just that most quick bites bring as many fillers and weird ingredients like mechanically separated chicken as they do nutrition. Then there are CHOMPS meat sticks, which are free of substitute ingredients like added sugar, artificial preservatives, fillers or MSG — the kind of stuff you’ll find in a lot of low-quality meat snacks. That’s not to say CHOMPS is average though with its 9-10 grams of grass-fed free range protein in each stick. Choose from nine different flavors, from simple Salt & Pepper Venison to Hoppin’ Jalapeño Beef. And they’re certified Paleo and Keto-friendly, too.

Wolf Viceroy Watch Winder
Save $319: While you don’t per se need a watch winder, its a nice accessory to have if you own multiple automatic watches. The problem is that even winders on the more affordable end of the spectrum can cost a surprisingly large amount of money, which is why it’s always nice to see a Wolf winder on sale. The winder’s MSRP is $499, but right now you can get it for just $180. — Zen Love
Reebok 50% Off Sale
Save 50%: Today, you can pick up a pair of Reebok’s best-selling CrossFit Nano 8 gym shoe and the Floatride Run — both on sale for over $70 off. Each sneaker is just a tad over $50, which is a steal for a sneaker that’s a winner in our Best Gym Sneakers guide. While the Nano sneakers are built for CrossFit, they make great gym sneakers, whether you prefer lifting weights and using machines over rope climbs and handstand pushups.
The best news of all is that Reebok’s massive spring sale doesn’t just include sneakers, it’s not just sneakers — you can take an additional 50 percent off all sale items including apparel and Classics. Be sure to use code EXTRA50 at checkout. — Meg Lappe
Mystery Ranch Backpacks
Save up to 39%: Mystery Ranch may be better known for the heavy-duty packs worn by members of the military and backcountry firefighters, but the lightweight In and Out, which is currently 18 percent off at Huckberry, meets our expectations of the company, if for different reasons.
The In and Out is collapsible, folding into itself to become the size of a small pillow (and you might use it as such on a long flight or bus ride). But, unlike many other minimalist travel backpacks, it remains full-featured with 100-denier Cordura fabric, an aerospace mesh back panel and pockets to accommodate everything from a water bottle to an ice axe. For these reasons, it’s our pick for the best minimalist daypack for hiking, but it’ll serve travelers who prefer city sidewalks to trails just as well.
Repro Military Sneakers from Various Countries
Save 20%:If you’re looking for a new pair of sneakers for spring and don’t want the ubiquitous styles offered at big-box stores, consider picking up a military trainer. Japanese footwear brand Reproduction of Found specializes in reproduction military trainers from a range of different countries and for a limited time, they’re on sale at Need Supply Co. Pick up familiar silhouettes from countries like Canada and the U.S. or step out of the box with styles from Russia and China. No matter the option, you’ll get a well-made sneaker that will differentiate you from the crowd. — John Zientek
