    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with WaterField Designs to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win the company's Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall, a bag that's ideal for everything from work to travel to the gym.

    Priced at $429, the 22-liter Atlas Holdall is true to its name and can hold all of your gear and then some. In the main briefcase compartment, it features a padded laptop pocket that's able to hold up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro, plus there's a padded tablet pocket that will fit an iPad as big as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

    There are also two deep pockets that are designed to hold cables, cords, and other small accessories, while a document compartment holds notebooks, files, folders, and more. A zippered pocket at the front is able to hold keys, cards, wallet, your phone, and more for quick access, and there's a leather-wrapped handle for grip plus a removable suspension strap.

    A separate workout compartment can hold workout clothes, a water bottle, a towel, and other workout gear. It can also hold extra clothes such as a change of clothes for work, and there's a collapsible shoe pocket for your gym shoes.

    The Atlas Holdall is available in a black ballistic nylon or a brown waxed canvas material. While the black ballistic will hide wear and tear, the waxed canvas embraces it and will take on a unique look over time. Both colors are water resistant and feature leather accents and waterproof zippers.

    This bag looks like if I took a nice bag, kicked the crap out of it and left in the rain for 2 weeks

    Exactly what I was thinking. Why on earth people seem so enamored with a bag that looks like this, I'll never know.

    That’s called “weathering” and it costs extra.

    While the price tag is a little high for most people to pay for this bag, it does appear to be very functional.
    Cannot understand all the bag envy people and their negative comments. You guys do NOT have to enter this giveaway.

    I have several Waterfield bags and the are functional, well built and the company stands behind them 100%. They are pricey compared to other bags are the kind of bag you buy once knowing they will last forever.

    As for negative comments, some people will bitch if you give them a hundred dollar bill that you didn't give them two fifties...

    Agreed. I have an Axio carbon fiber backpack, which, admittedly, was half the price of these bags, that I bought in 2005 and is still going strong. Some scuffs, but they give it character; show that it’s been through a lot with me. For certain items it’s worth it to pay extra for lasting quality.

    When I was a young thing and used bags like this, I would save my hard-earned cash to buy a new one when my old one started looking like this. Now people apparently pay to have their bags pre-used. Go figure...

    ...or maybe people just don't like a bag that looks like it was left in the rain for days. I suppose if someone gives you a turd, but polishes it and plates it with gold, you're supposed to want it, right?

    Nice strawman. You simply turn it down and don't bitch about the offer. No one is forcing you to take it.
    You don't like the bag? Don't enter the drawing. Problem solved.

    Nobody is forcing you to care about other people's opinions as much as you seem to. I don't like it, and you do. That's fine. I have just as much right to express my opinion as you do yours, and I'd appreciate some respect along those lines. Thanks.

    Actually, I never said anything about your opinion (which I actually agree with) until you made the turd comment. My point is that if someone is giving away something, to complain about it is, IMHO, ridiculous and some people will always find the dark cloud in the silver lining.

    As for respect, your turd comment got as much as it deserved...
