Leatherman Tread Bracelet $150
A few years ago, Leatherman Tool president Ben Rivera was on vacation with his family at Disneyland. After being stopped by security guards for carrying one of his company's multi-tools—which included a knife—and escorted back to his room to return it, he had an idea: What if there were a gadget that was similarly multifunctional but wouldn't raise eyebrows at security? Enter the Tread Bracelet, the newest offering from Leatherman. The bracelet's stainless steel links incorporate 29 different tools—including screwdrivers, wrenches, hex drivers and, of course, a bottle opener—each of which can be removed and rearranged. Most importantly, the Tread is travel-friendly, so you won't have to worry about it being confiscated by the TSA.

Lacoste LT12 Tennis Racquet $750
While tennis pro René Lacoste is best known for popularizing the short-sleeved polo shirt, you might be surprised to learn that he also invented the first metal tennis racquet in 1961. More than half a century later, Lacoste is honoring his legacy with the release of the limited-edition LT12 racquet. Featuring a hybrid wood and graphite frame, each of the 650 racquets was made by a single craftsman in Albertville, France, and took five hours to produce.
