Shifter-Pack -Alite-designs

My friends over at Alite Designs do awesome stuff. They’ve basically taken the idea of creating gear for the outdoors and made it more simple and stylish. I mean just take a look at the Sexy Hotness Sleeping Bag. It’s been designed so that you can zip as many sleeping bags together as you want. Who doesn’t wanna stay warm during an orgy in the woods right?

Anyways, they’ve given me the very rad Alite Shifter Pack to giveaway to one lucky winner. Here’s some info about it:

The Shifter Pack is a multi-purpose pack that is designed to fit the needs of urban commuters and day trippers alike. Offering a capacity of 31 liters, this pack can easily carry laptops, books, maps, clothing… everything you need for a day exploring the city, checking out an all-day music festival, or just getting to your office in the morning. The Shifter Pack is made of lightweight, water resistant waxed kodra, and weighs in at just over two pounds. It has an expanded roll top, so you can stuff your extra clothing layers into the top of the bag. We even added an extra side zipper that offers access to a special, padded laptop pocket! This special edition Camo / Orange / Green Shifter Pack was designed specifically for our customers in Japan, but we were able to save a few for the US!

You want to win that don’t you? I knew it! Well just enter the contest at the bottom of this post. Wanna get deals on all the other gear that Alite makes? Well you’re in luck. They are having a two day sale called the Brew-Ha-Holiday Sale on 12/6 & 12/7, where there will be an underground beer pop-up! Here’s what they have to say about it (aren’t bloc quotes swell?) and you can learn even more at the FB event page:
