The Olight store is having a charity sale for 24 hours with 100% of sales going to buy medical supplies for first responders and hospitals in need. It took me 45 minutes to complete my purchase but I did manage to get two of the limited edition I1R 2 Eos lights in blue.
OOS
Yep. My wife tried buying some at 0600 when she got up for work and was told they sold out of "everything" in 3 hours. Not sure if that's just the two models in limited edition blue or their entire store inventory. I'm leaning towards just the blue.

Morakniv Bushcraft Knife, with black DLC-coated carbon steel blade. $27.19 shipped from Woot.com (fulfilled by Amazon)

sellout.woot.com/offers/morakniv-bushcr ... kdeals+LLC

A pretty good price for this particular Mora, which I believe has a slightly longer and thicker blade than most Mora knives, and a flat milled spine for drawing sparks from a ferrocerium rod.

Currently $36.99 on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Morakniv-Bushcra ... YZA1Q&th=1) which itself is slightly below the average Amazon price of $37.79 (https://camelcamelcamel.com/product/B009O01H0Y)

A pretty solid deal for a well-regarded all around utility knife. Many prefer carbon steel over stainless, as it takes and holds a better edge. Carbon steel does require more upkeep however; that DLC (how come I keep thinking "downloadable content"?) coating will wear off. Youtube and knife forums are rife with how-to's on forcing a protective patina on carbon steel.

Here's a nice review:

Mechanix MultiCam Tactical gloves 20% off with promo code 'DAD' with free MultiCam cloth face mask. Free shipping.

https://www.mechanix.com/us-en/men/multicam-series

The free face mask automatically gets added to your cart. Any other year and the free face mask wouldn't have really tempted me. But you know, COVID. I ordered the Fastfit model in medium. $11.99 out the door. These are going straight into my get home bag.

Swiss Safe First Aid Kit Pouch (64-Piece) 3-Pack $13 shipped. Woot.com, fulfilled by Amazon. Today only (6/20)'

Yeah I know; a shitty little IFAK. But at this price, they're practically worth it just for the pouch, CPR mask and basic first aid instructions. These would make a great foundation for a trio of more capable kits to throw your BOB, GHB, EDC or just your regular hiking pack. Or toss a $50 bill in there you've got a graduation gift from that crazy prepper uncle/aunt (who no longer seems quite so crazy these days). :lol:

I should have been clearer. Free shipping for Amazon Prime members. But it's kind of moot now. They're sold out.

Got mine in today's mail and found out "Large" actually equals "Medium" and "One Size" does not fit "All".

The gloves barely made it around my wrists and fastened and the mask tried to pull my ears off. Oh well... Goodwill donation box. :?

Lamp Shade Pocket Securely Holds Your Headlamp to Provide Ambient Light
Footprint Included
Strategic Clip Placement Provides Larger Interior Volume
Seam Taped Full Coverage Fly with Vents

Color Coded "Easy Pitch" Clips and Poles
Interior Pockets for Small Gear Organization
Jingle-Free Nylon Zipper Pulls
DAC Press-Fit Poles

Max weight
4lbs 4.5oz (1940g)
Min weight
3lbs 13.5oz (1740g)

Combo deal plus web coupon.
Just ordered 2) Level III+ 11x14 multicurve, coated ballistic plates and 2) 11x14 trauma pads, from AR500 @ 20% off with online coupon "welcomeback". Combo deal plus coupon = $265 total including tax. I never left, so the code works for anyone.
https://www.ar500armor.com/body-armor/h ... combo.html

10x12's would be $40 less, built up coating would be $98 more and a longer lead.

Don't click the process order button more than once, It does it but keeps you on the same page, so it looks like it didn't take your order.

Estimated lead time wasn't bad either, 8 weeks.

This sale is for Prime members only. If you're not a prime member Lifestraw website has a 25% off sale right now which is lower than most Amazon prices without the Prime sale.

The Lifestraw has unlimited shelf life, but will only filter 1000 gallons.

The sawyer mini does 100,000 gallons. And isn't to much more expensive. And the squeeze is even better.

Yes, that's 'cause you can backflow it to clean it out after use. Over and over again.

Jomashop.com has the Suuntu Core Black Military/Outdoor watch sale price is 124.99 with a $25 off web coupon. Free shipping, no tax. Never bought anything from there before but since I've been looking at that watch for a long while now, and since that's the first time I've seen it for $100, I ordered it. Lowest I've seen it on Amazon was $147. https://www.jomashop.com/suunto-watch-ss014279010.html

I've purchased from Jomashop before. They are an established, reputable grey market (bona fide name brand watches, but with vendor's rather than manufacturer's warranty) online watch dealer.
