Today in sales: Carry-ons, down vests, Italian boots

By Kunal

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.

A Lunar New Year sale because … why not? A lot of good deals on layers here, including $10 off some already inexpensive light down vests, jackets and parkas, along with a selection of hoodies, long-sleeve button-downs and ankle-length pants.

Astorflex Bootflex
These eco-friendly, soft leather lace-ups are handmade in Italy and feature 100% natural rubber soles. Huckberry has a sale on a couple different colors (nearly $70 off), along with half off on a few different Chelsea boots.

Genius Pack
GP makes some innovative luggage — we own and use their travel backpack with the integrated suit bag, and their flight bag (on sale!) wraps around the airline chair in front of you, giving you quick, chest-level access to all your flight needs. The company’s new Supercharged hardshell carry-on features two USB ports, a removable battery, eight 360-degree spinner wheels and interior category compartments for you OCD travelers (like yours truly). There’s even an embedded packing checklist. Preorders start at $219, a huge savings off the future retail price of $395.

Sales of note:

  • Unionmade: The ridiculously expensive designer thread here get slightly more reasonable, with an extra 20% off sale items with the code EXTRA20.
  • Sperry: Sneakers, slippers and boots up to 50% off at HauteLook.

Ends today:
