Native Union TAG Cable
Native Union TAG Cable
When it comes to staying fully charged while on-the-go, Native Union has you covered with their leather TAG Cable. Made up of Italian leather and a reinforced braided nylon cable, the clochette conceals connectors that can charge and sync your mobile device from any USB power outlet. Available in either tan or black, you can loop it around your bag strap or key holder so that you’ll always be covered when your device is low on fuel. Along with having universal access to power, you’ll find that it’s just as much an accessory as it is a tool. Photo: Courtesy of Native Union

Steven Alan Time Traveler Watch
Steven Alan Time Traveler Watch
When Kate Leaver, Steven Alan’s women’s designer (shown above), was imagining a new version of their Time Traveler Watch, she wanted to create something that reminded her of home. The result is a delicate interpretation of a classic men’s watch that has two simultaneous dials that can be set to different time zones. The dual timepiece is made up of a gold-plated, stainless-steel body and a twin Japanese quartz movement. The simple mineral crystal face and leather strap make for an uncomplicated, clean piece that will allow you to keep tabs on two destinations at one time.

BAGGU Sport Duffel Bag

The ultra-sporty shape and lightweight construction makes it perfect for traveling or going to the gym.
