Kind of a Big Deal: October 27th

Today: Leather backpacks, bourbon and a cool NYC hotel

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.

Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon
This limited-edition whiskey used to be sold only at the JB distillery. Now available on Caskers, this divine spirit is finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks … and currently 20% off.

The Thompson Hotel, New York, NY
Look, we know you’re coming to New York for the holidays anyway. Stay here: This luxury boutique hotel in TriBeCa features a farm-to-table restaurant and artisan cocktails on the premises. And it’s currently up to 53% off. (Note: When you get here, stay to the right and walk fast.)

Nike Vapor Speed Training Backpack
Currently on sale for 40% off. Great for lugging all the gear you need for the gym — and better for getting started on that New Year’s resolution early.

SeaVees Fall Sale
Our favorite comfy footwear brand has a 30% off sale through Friday when you use the code WTF30. These washed linen slip-ons have us thinking back on summer.

The Leather Duffle Backpack
Dubbed “the world’s most functional leather backpack,” this Kickstarter-backed bag is interchangeable and expands/alters itself based on your needs (with the help of a few zippers). For early birds, the basic Pro pack starts at $165 (normally $250) while the full weekender set is $330, or $110 off the regular price.
