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.

Timbuk2 Canteen Pack
Currently 30% off, this bag — available in different colors — is a smaller take on a utility pack. With its multiple and easily accessible outer pockets, it’s a great choice for day trips.

Woolrich Rough Rider Sherpa Blanket
From one of the oldest woolen mills in the country, this wool blanket is big enough for two and will come in handy during the impending ‘cuffing season’. Currently $20 off.

Eastdane Event of the Season
The expansive menswear marketplace is currently offering 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500. Pro-tip: spend $501.

Halter ED-257 Desktop
Height-adjustable so you can go from standing to sitting with just a squeeze of a handle. Also features built-in cable management, so your devices don’t get bunched up. Now 57% off, with an additional 24% off if you click the promo button.

HOPii Personal Micro-Brewery
A slick kitchen gadget and some beer kits that ai to produce facsimiles of some of your favorite hard-to-get microbrews. Also, it’s about as easy to use as pushing a button (the cleaning part, too). Starting at $299, or over 50% of the future retail price.

Amazon Echo Spot
Amazon intro’d a bunch of Alexa-powered items today (the Echo Plus is already on sale), but we’re partial to the Spot, a smart alarm clock with a 2.5-inch display — so you can use it as a security device, video caller or an additional speaker. Available for pre-order at $130.
