For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Harber London to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a City Backpack that's perfect for holding a MacBook Pro and other Apple gear.

Priced at $513, the City Backpack can accommodate a 13 to 16-inch laptop in the dedicated laptop compartment, so it works with even Apple's largest 16-inch machine. There's also a built-in tablet pocket that's able to fit the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with attached Smart Keyboard or smaller tablets, so it's an ideal solution for those who have several Apple devices.

Along with the two device pockets, there's an inside water bottle pocket and smaller pockets for accessories such as an Apple Pencil. With all of the space inside, it has a 13.6L total capacity, which is a good size for a daily commute.

The exterior of the bag is made from a premium full grain cowhide leather and it's available in tan, black, or deep brown. According to Harber London, the bag will age well and develop a unique patina overtime.

Inside, there's a soft-woven cotton twill material that's designed to provide a heritage feel, and it comes with aviation grade aluminum buckles. A magnetic strap that goes across the chest is also available to distribute the weight and make wearing the backpack more comfortable, plus there's a luggage strap.

Looks really heavy. Pass.
Same thing I thought. Last year I bought what I thought was a compact backpack, which I was initially in love with. Then I got an even smaller one with a product I bought - not premium but so practical. I haven’t put it down since. The other is just sitting idle. The price of this is also a non-starter for me.

...pssst: I was looking around in the ladies department at a well known online shop and found just what I was looking for. Most backpacks are too big and heavy for me, but the one I discovered just does the job in a perfect way.
I do not want to spoil that thread with pictures of alien backpacks, but: sometimes small is beautiful. I would have got this one immediately, as it looks gorgeous, but - size, you know...

**EDIT - ok the "Slim Laptop Backpack" I just discovered at Harber would have been almost perfect too. (11 inch max would have been absolutely perfect...)

Very nice...

It looks nice but I’d rather have a low-key bag that doesn’t scream out ‘steal me I’m likely to have something worth stealing inside’.
Interesting approach. But if we start to act that way (...not absolutely unreasonable unfortunately) we have lost.

Get it, if you like it. Furthermore: do not forget, "low-key" looking stuff is sometimes just made "low-key" looking, costing a fortune...

I know rusty looking bicylces pretending that...

Couldn’t agree more. Will have a look, but then prices. There’s a local (German) one here called GustiLeather and they make really affordable leather bags.

Just tried to enter which you have to give full name and email address and it said my email address had already been used to make an entry. I was like WTF!!!!! How can my email address be registered with this competition when I haven't even entered the competition!!!. Something dodgy going on here.

I had the same thing happen I think they are just trying to get web site clicks like when a store advertised 80 inch flat screen TVs for $600 and you go out to get one and they say oh sorry we only had one but here is one for $6000.
