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.

Whether you’re trying to refine your archery skills or just get a leg up on the competition when it comes to office warfare, the BB Sniper mini crossbow from Uncommon Carry will fit the bill. Handmade out of stainless steel and equipped with a self-loading chamber, the BB Sniper is designed to hurl projectiles like toothpicks or mini BBs with surprising accuracy at a range of about 30-50 feet. Make sure to schedule some time for target practice because this addictive little crossbow can do some damage. Have fun, but avoid the sensitive areas.
