The Best Presidents' Day Weekend Gear Sales

MSR's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes Earl Harper

This weekend is Presidents' Day. Maybe you've chosen to spend the day contemplating the long history of our nation's highest office, or maybe you're taking advantage of the long weekend to get out of town. If you find yourself with some free time, we've rounded up more than two dozen of our favorite deals from online retailers around the web and included the links to their sale pages. Happy birthday, Washington and Lincoln, and thank you for the day off work.

Updated February 18, 2019: We added 10 new deals from Google, Apple, Amazon, and others that we found over the weekend.

These snowshoes are 25 percent off

REI is having their yearly ski and snowboard sale this weekend, and it's worth checking out if you have a snowy presidential excursion on the docket. Snowshoeing is vastly underrated as a sport, and these ultralight and secure ones just might convert you.

  • MacBook Air for $1,050 ($149 off) The MacBook Air got a redesign in late 2018, and it's now our favorite MacBook. This entry level version has enough power to get work done. If you save a lot of files locally, consider beefing the storage up from 128GB to 256GB.

  • Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm) for $229 ($50 off) The newer Series 4 has a larger screen and innovative new heart-tracking features, but the Series 3 is still fantastic and a lot more affordable—especially right now. If you have a larger wrist, consider the 42mm size.
