    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Mission Workshop to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a rugged, slick looking laptop backpack called The Rhake.


    The Rhake, like all of the backpacks from Mission Workshop, is made from weatherproof Cordura and built using a two-layer construction that's designed to keep everything inside safe and dry even in rainy, snowy conditions. Priced at $365, it comes in black, gray, and olive, with a black camo that has special Cobra buckles option available for $455.

    Inside, the Rhake has a ton of pockets to carry your laptop and all of your accessories. There's a padded pocket that fits all modern Apple MacBooks and leaves them accessible from the exterior of the pack for quick access, a 10-inch tablet pocket to hold your iPad, and a 22-liter roll-top main compartment that you can roll up or unfurl based on what you need to haul.

    A hidden water bottle pocket holds a water bottle or similarly shaped item and zips away when you're not using it, an exterior accessory pocket holds chargers and other small miscellaneous items, an interior zip pocket holds documents, and two interior zippered organizational pockets can house notebooks, business cards, pens, and other accessories.

    In addition to all of these pockets, there are horizontal exterior straps across the Rhake with quick release buckles to store coats, hats, and more on the outside of the backpack. Several add-on accessories can be used with the Rhake, including quick-release Cobra buckles ($60), a Roll Tool ($24), and a smartphone pocket ($36).

    A foam back panel means the Rhake is always comfortable even when it's packed full of gear, and a luggage handle pass-through option means you can use it with roller luggage when traveling.

    We have one Rhake backpack to give away to a MacRumors reader. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

    Gosh there are like a thousand backpack EXACTLY like this on Amazon... NOT ORIGINAL IDEA BUT JUST A PRIVATE/WHITE LABEL!! Avoid these bs private label products! All they support is the stupid China factory and the lazy American who can't actually think on their own... but has money to spent on marketing. Think for yourself guys and create your own real backpack! No thank you!

    I think a student might have more use for it.

    I'm not interested but good luck to people who are.

    Note: Waiting on the next drone give away :).

    This backpack would be perfect for early college next year, and, due to it's rugged construction, would last me for years once I enter the workforce. Since I can't afford $365 for a backpack, I'm hoping the .16% chance I have to win works out.

    Umm yeah the bags are made in the USA. But nice rant though. I have 2 of their bags and a couple of their jackets. There's no doubt their stuff is expensive but I've been very happy with mine.

    Have no idea what you're talking about. Mission Workshop designs and builds all of their products in the United States. Their HQ is in San Francisco - you can drop in and have your items repaired or replaced, as everything has a lifetime warranty.

    This bag is just amazing. I’ve actually been saving up to get one. Mission workshop is just around the corner from where I work so I was able to tease myself in person.

    Good luck to all who take part, but it would be nice to land it!

    How about you think for yourself and research the company before you go off on some tirade that’s completely misguided. Mission Workshop is an amazing company whose products are made in the US and come with a lifetime warranty. Their products are completely weatherproof (you can actually fill the bags with ice and use them as coolers), and their in-store staff is friendly and helpful.

    Calm down. Not everything on the internet needs to be a frackin' argument. Sheesh.
