For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Southern Straps to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of Apple Watch bands and a Watch Roll that's designed to organize your all of your Apple Watch bands and accessories.

Southern Straps makes a range of Apple Watch bands in nylon and leather, and recently expanded into organization with the launch of the Watch Roll, a clever little roll up pouch that's perfect for Apple Watch.

The Watch Roll, priced at $90, is available in either black suede or brown suede, both of which are soft to the touch but durable enough that it's going to last for years to come.

The Watch Roll has three large pockets for carrying watches or other accessories, while three smaller pockets are sized for carrying additional Apple Watch straps. The Watch Roll is great for Apple Watch and its accessories, but also ideal for watch collectors who have more than one watch.

Southern Straps sells the Watch Roll on a standalone basis, but the company also offers combo packs that combine the Watch Roll with several watch bands at a discount.

Southern Straps makes high-quality nylon bands in a range of colors, along with leather bands in either black or brown, both of which match well with the Watch Roll. The nylon bands are durable and comfortable, while the leather bands are supple and hand stitched.

All of Southern Straps' bands come with a multi-year warranty and are available in multiple sizes and with lugs to match multiple Apple Watch finishes.

So, the watch bands only fill half of the roll. How does that make sense space-wise?
My best guess is that you're supposed to break it in half like a Kit Kat bar and share it with a friend.
