During important business meetings, your pen can say as much about you as your suit or car. The Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen ($150) will represent you well with a simple, modern, elegant design, fiberglass-reinforced Makrolon body, and a great patina that will develop over time. [Thanks, Kevin]
We've had meetings in some odd places, but never in a room like this. The Cloud Room ($5000) is a portable, inflatable meeting room that features a fan for setup in just three minutes, and a simple carrying bag for easy storage. At 15.5 by 13 feet, it's got plenty of room — and we're guessing the white, rip-resistant nylon walls work just fine as a screen for your projector. [Thanks, Lucas]
Eating right doesn't mean you have to sacrifice all snacking. Chomps is a beef snack stick with no added sugar, gluten, dairy, hormones, or antibiotics. The 100% grass-fed beef they use offers 9 grams of protein and under 110 calories in every stick. Available in four flavors, it's a delicious beef jerky you can enjoy with zero guilt.

Protein bars usually contain as much sugar as a doughnut and have an ingredient list that requires a doctorate to pronounce. RXBARs are different. With no more than eight ingredients, each bar contains real, whole foods and delivers 12g of quality protein without any added sugar. At the core of every bar is a mixture of egg whites, fruits, and nuts — which they print right on the front of the package — and each of their 12 flavors are gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. Our favorites are Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, and Peanut Butter, but we recommend starting with the best seller pack, which comes with six of their top selling flavors. Keep a few of these in your gym bag, office drawer, and kitchen pantry for when you need a snack and resist the urge to scarf a candy bar.
