GIVEAWAY: Saddleback Carbon Black Briefcase

At one point or another in each of our lives we’re forced to accept the fact that we need to grow up. Sell the IROC and buy a minivan. Give up on your dreams of being a male porn star and get a real job. Trade in your backpack for a briefcase.

News flash people – Porsche makes a 4 door, the iPhone 4 makes anything possible, and Saddleback Leather is still making briefcases. At first, you might think the Saddleback Leather Carbon Black Briefcase isn’t as impressive as a performance-tuned German automobile or a phone with limitless amateur porn potential – but you would be wrong. If anything, the fact that you’re going to be carrying this every day makes the full grain boot leather, lack of breakable parts, and 100 year warranty (yes, it’s warrantied until well after you are) all the more important. Unlike a certain unnamed mobile device manufacturer, Saddleback believes in function as well as form so this converts to a backpack as well.

Anything more impressive than a Porsche and amateur tube sites is going to come at a pretty steep price, right? Not this time gents, not this time. Saddleback Leather sent us one $519 Carbon Black Briefcase to give away gratis. Here’s how you win:
