Kind of a Big Deal: August 7th

Today’s best sales: Camping blankets, footwear, copper straws

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.

Kammok Field Blanket
An all-terrain blanket that’s waterproof ripstop nylon on the bottom and comfy fleece on the top; they’ll work as a sleeping bag, pillow or poncho in a pinch, and they fit into Kammok’s hammocks as well. Over 20% off at Huckberry.

The world’s first Fair Trade Certified footwear brand is throwing a huge sale, and not just on shoes — the entire website is 50% off, including leather bags and other accessories.

Cocktail Straws
Plastic straws are the worst, both environmentally and aesthetically. Solve both issues with these copper-plated sippers, 8.5” long and arriving with their own canvas storage pouch and cleaning brush. Now just $11, as part of Izola’s August Clearance sale.

Sales of note:

  • Best Made: The “Almost End of Summer Sale” nets you up to 40% off work shirts, belts and shorts.
  • Sierra Trading Post: An “epic” summer blowout means over 50% off (and often much more) on shirts, pants and workout gear.
