For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Duluth Pack to give one lucky MacRumors reader a chance to win one of the company's Deluxe Laptop Daypacks. Made of a rugged canvas, the Deluxe Laptop Daypack includes leather accents for better durability and resistance to wear, and it has adjustable leather shoulder straps for comfort.

There's a big pocket on the outside for holding things like cords, smartphones, and other small accessories, and there are dividers within that pocket to keep things organized. Inside, there's a padded laptop sleeve that's able to hold a laptop that's up to 15 inches high and 16 inches wide, which is plenty of room for all of Apple's laptops, up to the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro.


The Deluxe Laptop Dayback is a good-sized bag that's going to hold a ton of stuff along with a laptop. It measures in at 18 inches tall by 14 inches wide, and it comes with a lifetime warranty that covers all craftsmanship and hardware used in its construction.


Duluth Pack's Daypacks are available in a wide range of colors, from traditional shades of black and brown to brighter colors like red, pink, and tangerine. The Deluxe Laptop Daypack is priced at $275, but Duluth also offers other Daypacks, bags, and briefcases at lower prices.


One MacRumors reader will win a Duluth Deluxe Daypack in the color of their choosing. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

That hunter green and brown is nice. But these bags seem tiny... They should've places a common object in the pic to get a feel for their size.

No padding, no venting, hideously amateur morphology, and an oversized giant patch of brown in the middle to be sure nobody ever finds this item visually pleasant.

Why would anyone ever intentionally acquire this product? For the most part, it looks like some youth's summer camp craft project.

God awful ugly. No wonder they have to give em away
Apparently you guys know nothing about Duluth Pack. Yes I'm a little biased having recently moved away from there. Duluth packs is made to never fail. If it does, return it and you get a free one. Packs that are nearly a hundred years old have come in for rivot replacement and that's it.

TLDR: their stuff is made to last for decades, not fall apart after a year or two.

We've got packs & all sorts of gear bags from D.P. in our family, some over a century old, and they all see very hard use on long expeditions, thrown out of canoes onto rocky shores, slid down sheer faces, tumbled over shale and scree and rained on, dumped overboard, sat with spoiled & soggy food in them, gnawed on by animals, you name it. Purely utilitarian performance. Everything they make, they still make right in their shop in Duluth, which you can walk right into, and meet the men & women making every piece, and get fresh leather straps when you mangle yours around a truck axle. Everything they build, they build to last centuries, and they support their customers with customizations as desired. Don't like the moose logo, they'll build you a bag without one. First rate products, first rate company. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for and you pay for what you get.

If you're looking for a fashion statement, buy some cheap piece of crap with a 10000% markup from a fashion brand to wear around your city and impress trendy urbanites.

How many think adults over the age of say, 24, shouldn't be wearing backpacks unless they're hiking or camping? This is what occurs to me every time my 40-something year old coworkers throw their overstuffed backpacks on to go the 100 steps from their desks to their cars.

hmmm...looks like the smaller pouch should be a removal fanny pack sort of thing. *please let that be the case. please let that be the case* Checks post more carefully. Nope, not the case. Pity.

I think adults shouldn't be doing overstuffed any-kind-of-bag. Pare down and organize.

Because any of that matters how again?

Thank you for posting this. They sound like a Fantastic Company, who have that (Nowadays) rare quality of caring about their product & their customers.

Nowadays, it is all too easy for a Company to be lumped in with all the Manufacturers who do as you say in your last paragraph, so pointing out the difference makes a difference IMHO

- Any idea about what else those people do with their backpacks for the rest of the day?
- Whether the backpack is over- or under-stuffed, it is more flexible, comfortable and healthful to carry around than any other kinds of bags or cases
- ... why should anyone care about what occurs to you?

Were you paid to write that? Thanks for all the warm wholesome images.

Or you could by a Crumpler bag, same price as the Duluth pack, super well made, lifetime warranty, and fashion forward.

Sorry guys, this is no way deluxe bag. It even has plastic zippers! Just won't last for the price (WOW! $275 – can grab a TUMI or some PIQUADRO bag or pack on sale!)
It's only worth as a giveaway ))

Well, that makes some sense... Bu-ut...,

TLDR: their stuff is made to last for decades, not fall apart after a year or two.
... to my vision, to last not only means not to fall apart, but to look like new or at least stylish after few years of (+/-)everyday use.

I've googled around and found this one on ebay, looks pretty fresh, but take a look at the upper corners... IMHO, this kind of wearing looks unpleasant.

Failed to find PIQUADRO used leather pack, but my brother has one 4~5 y.o., gets older in a more elegant and stylish manner
