By The Editors

Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Baabuk Urban Wooler
Currently 21% off, these wool sneaks are great for temperature regulation in both heat and cold. They’re also naturally water repellent, quick-drying and antimicrobial.

Solar + Anti-Theft Backpack and Shoulder Bag
Currently on Kickstarter, these bags from Lifepack include a functional solar battery for charging devices, a built-in lock system (think bike lock for your bag), magnetic closures and crazy internal organization. Save up to $100 with a pledge.

Simmons Kids Oakmont 6-Piece Nursery Set
Having a kid? Good luck to you. Want that kid to have a decked out room? Of course you do. This six-piece set will have your child strutting into daycare feeling like a champ. On sale for 30% off.

PolarSeal Heated Tops
Yeah, it’s a little early to be thinking about winter, but these heated tops will be great once ski season kicks in. These zip tops warm you up (in two separate heating zones) at the push of a button, and they’re lightweight and breathable. And the alpine blue layer looks really nice, too. Pre-orders start at $99.

The Soft Briefcase by Linjer
The Wirecutter made Linjer their pick for “Favorite Leather Briefcase” and we can see why: These veg-tanned, slim leather beauties have the look and feel of something twice the price. Now available in four colors in extremely limited quantities (for pre-order) at $489.

ASUS Flip Laptop
Use the code PCOLLEGE10 to get an additional 10% off purchases of $25 or more, including an array of electronics, bags and fashion. Which brings the price of this laptop, which is already $200 off, even lower.
