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.
This waterproof adventure pack with a removable hip pack isn't exactly “cool,” but it's definitely useful, with expandable mesh pockets, an easy-access front pocket and inflatable back support. That padded comfort and the sternum/double-lined shoulder straps means you’ll stay comfortable on long walks ... and when not in use, the bag packs down into a pouch the size of your palm. Preorders start at $69, or $30 less than the future retail price.
Keep your money and your house safe with this wire-free security system, featuring four HD, weatherproof, battery-operated cameras with night vision and two additional 1080p cameras with two-way audio. Now 30% off.
There are a few sales going on here — a fall event that promises up to 60% off assorted clothing, and a summer clearance fête that may net you up to 70% off warm-weather gear. Either case, it’s a good time for flannels, henleys and light jackets.
Sales of note:
- Apple: It’s not the new iPhones, but you can grab an iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular for $380, down from $629.
- Target: A chair and bar stool sale means “buy 1 get 1 50% off” on several pairs.
