Win a Rad Backpack from Alite Plus Check Out Their Sweet Sample Sale!!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


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 Alite 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 adjustable, padded shoulder straps were made to be super comfortable, and include reflectors for when you’re maneuvering in the dark.
