Photojojo Iron On Microfiber Patches
These microfiber lens-cleaning clothes iron onto the inside of garments or bags for discreet but easy access on the go. Whether it’s a camera lens, sunglasses, or just a dirty iPhone screen, using a shirt is prone to scratch those necessary essentials. Never be caught without the proper tools of maintenance again. $12

Sounder Goods Alligator Watch Band
Most leather made from alligator hide comes from farm raised animals, resulting in standard, often uniform skin pattern. These watch bands are all made from wild-caught Florida gators, meaning no two hides are the same. Hand dyed in dark brown with single-piece back leather keeper, the bands also feature stainless steel buckles built to last. $225
