Our Favorite Outdoor Deals
Silky Ono Professional Hatchet for $82 ($27 off): This a good hatchet is a must-have for serious wood chopping in the outdoors. It is sharp and potentially dangerous, though, so be sure to use safely and store this one in the included bag for safe transport.
Sea To Summit X-Seal and Go Bowl for $13 ($11 off): This collapsible bowl works just as well in the office as on the trail, making it perfect for packed lunches no matter where you are. When you're done, give it a quick rinse and collapse it down for easy travels.
Petzl Tikkina Headlamp for $16 ($4 off): The Tikkina strikes a good balance between price, weight, and luminosity. It doesn't have a red light, but it does offer two modes—one optimized for brightness, one for battery life.
Black Diamond Cams for $58-$85 ($10-$45 off): Black Diamond's Camelot series of camming devices remain some of the best you can buy. They don't end up on sale much either.
Our Favorite Electronics Deals
Bose SoundSport Earbuds—Apple Devices—for $39 ($60 off): If your Apple device has a headphone jack, these Bose headphones make a nice upgrade. There's an inline mic and remote for switch between music and calls.
Western Digital 5 TB USB 3.0 Portable Drive for $100 ($70 off): Need more space? This massive, massive 5-terabyte drive can back up all your data and fit comfortably in your bag.
Dell G5 15 Gaming Laptop for $1,149 ($250 off): This is a powerhouse of the laptop for the price; the only thing that's not to love is the small hard drive, but if you grab the 5TB drive above you'll have plenty of external storage.
Logitech Harmony Universal Remote for $50 ($20 off): Control all things with one thing. This hub and remote center isn't perfect (no universal remote system is), but it can do the job. It's compatible with any modern Android phone or iPhone.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera Bundle for $50 ($30 off): Instant cameras are fun, but the images aren't good enough to justify the price tag sometimes. That's why we like this deal, which has everything you need for just $50.
Marvel's Spider-Man—PS4—for $100 ($140 off): Spider-Man for the PS4 wasn't our favorite , but is still incredible fun, especially if you're a fan of the character.
