Timex Field Watches
Save Up to 50%: Just in time for summer, several of Timex’s field watches are on sale, some of which, like the Mk 1 Aluminum, are based on vintage references from the company’s vast archives. Whether you need a watch for the beach or something with a 12-hour bezel for keeping track of a second time zone, Timex has a summer watch for you. — Oren Hartov
Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Backpack
Save 39%: In 1985 the founder of Mystery Ranch, Dana Gleason, invented a revolutionary internal frame design called ArcFlex that permanently changed how pack makers think about load bearing. But Gleason and co-founder Renee Sippel-Baker hit their stride when Navy SEALs approached them in search of custom packs. Now they craft bags for the military, backcountry firefighters and the US Forest Service, but they haven’t forgotten the everyday outdoorsman.
The Urban Assault pack, which is currently 39 percent off at Huckberry, utilizes the same technical design features that make Mystery Ranch bags suitable for the most rigorous users but it includes features that make it ideal for the urban inhabitant. It’s made with 500-denier Cordura nylon and has a unique three-zipper opening system, two internal accessory pockets, a laptop sleeve and a quick-access lid pouch. It also employs a fixed-harness frame system, which allows the commuter-friendly pack to perform like a high-end expedition backpack. — Tanner Bowden

LG 2018 E8 OLED 4K TV
Save $1,150: If you’re in the market for a really nice 55-inch 4K TV, we’ve got good news: nearly every one of LG’s 2018 OLED TVs is currently on sale. Of course, these deals aren’t totally out of left field. It’s that time of year where all TV manufacturers are gearing up to release their new models, so naturally, the old models are going to come down. But they’re not just on sale — many of them are nearly half off. The best deal is on the LG E8. It’s a high-end OLED TV that costs $2,500 on the company’s website, but it’s currently selling for $1,350 on Newegg.
Rev’It Pilot Jacket
Save 40%: Rev’It made a name for itself in the adventure motorcycle and high-performance spaces in Europe, protecting riders from head o toe with tactical-looking gear. Once they made the jump to the States, they learned low-key, subtle styling and minimal branding is the name of the game. Rev’It didn’t forget its roots, but pieces like the PilotJacket prove the Dutch brand can successfully jump into any space and meet the needs of riders.
The Pilot Jacket takes inspiration from WWII bomber pilots, its outer shell is made from 100 percent buffalo leather and comes with a detachable thermal liner. The Pilot jacket isn’t just some fashion-forward piece of outerwear, either, it’s built to hold CE-rated protective armor at the elbows, shoulders and back. Today, the Rev’It is marked down from $670 to $400. — Bryan Campbell
