timbuk2-giveaway

Last week, we told you about the Timbuk2 Snoop Camera Messenger Bag. The response was, in a word, obscene. Everyone and their brother/friend/photographer girlfriend really wants Timbuk2’s transformable, camera-ready, gear-cradling masterpiece. You tweeted, Facebooked, e-mailed, yelled, burned things in effigy, etc., etc. We heard you and so did Timbuk2. Apparently simply wishing for something can really make it materialize out of nowhere because now we have a $130 gray/red Timbuk2 Snoop Camera Messenger Bag to give away. To you.

GIVEAWAY – Contest Closed. Congrats to Tara

Check out all of the entries

Want it? Take a picture of your gear – or you and your gear – and e-mail it to gear[at]coolmaterial.com. Pictures say a lot, but they don’t tell the whole story. Be sure to tell us a little something about yourself – name, location, favorite Glee character (We hope, for your sake, you don’t do this.), beer choice, etc. Once all the submissions are in, we’ll put them all in a gallery so we can all show off our sweet gear.

Remember, the Snoop isn’t JUST a camera bag, so you don’t need a $5000 camera to enter. It certainly wouldn’t hurt though – if you can manage to get it in the shot.

Since you’re going to be showing us yours, we figured it was only fair if we showed you ours – it’s below. Another man’s trash might be your treasure, but your junk is still your junk so keep it clean. We’ll choose a winner 10/22. Good luck.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
