BioLite SolarPanel 100: $300 ($100 Off)

Combined with Starlink connectivity and a sunny campsite, this highly efficient solar panel can be the ticket to working remotely anywhere on Earth. In peak sunshine, the BioLite 100 outputs 100W — plenty of power to run your small devices. In truth, comfortable off-grid camping would likely require more than one panel, but every person’s needs are slightly different.

There are lots of similar solar panels on the market. But we like BioLite’s sleek design sense and innovative approach. At just 9.5 pounds, this is an impressively portable panel, and it’s just over an inch thick when folded flat.

This deal runs until July 4.

Midland X-Talker Two-Way Radio: $95 (14% Off)

Though it may seem like outdated technology in the smartphone era, two-way radios have plenty of applications in the backcountry. These comms devices are a reliable way to stay in touch with your group on far-flung expeditions and out-of-service adventures.

In a multipitch climbing scenario, wind and distance can make it impossible to hear your partner — a frustrating and potentially dangerous situation. Clear communication is the basis of safety, and these no-frills radios can help. With an impressive claimed range of up to 44 miles and a durable battery, the X-Talker is among the best walkie-talkies that money can buy.

This deal runs until June 30.

Xero Shoes HFS Road Running Shoe: $60 (50% Off)

Xero Shoes makes a broad range of zero-drop footwear. We’ve tested the HFS road running shoe, and it’s exceptionally comfortable and durable relative to its low weight. The HFS has a minimal mid and outsole, which affords the foot plenty of flex and a natural range of motion.

Plus, these thin underfoot layers accentuate ground feel and maintain a barefoot-like connection with the running surface. If the shoe somehow feels too thick for you, you can remove the 3.5mm insole for a barely there feel.

Now, during a rare sale for Xero Shoes, the HFS is available for a whopping 50% off. If you’re seeking a more versatile everyday shoe, the brand’s Prio model is also heavily discounted.

This deal runs until July 6.

Nike VaporMax Plus: $168 (20% Off)

A nod to Nike’s 1990s iconic AirMax, the VaporMax Plus features an outsole fully composed of inert gas-filled chambers. According to Nike, the VaporMax required 7 years of ideation and development, and the result is “revolutionary comfort and a modern look.”

Outsoles with air pockets are nothing new in 2023 — the VaporMax is simply the latest iteration of one of Nike’s signature concepts. In theory, the VaporMax offers extra bounce and kinetic energy compared to standard running shoes with foam outsoles. We can’t confirm this, but we assume most people purchase them for the brand name and the unique look anyway.

From now until June 26, the VaporMax is available for 20% off with the discount code “SUMMER” at checkout.
