Win An Limited Tote Bag

April 19, 2011 by fred

A few weeks ago we supported the 5th edition of Mess With Texas (MWTX) festival during SXSW in Austin, TX. For the event we teamed up with Incase and made 500 tote bags. The Altamont side was designed by our contributor and art director FOS .

We gave most away during the event, but since we know some of you couldn't make it out to Texas, we kept some on the side.

Every day this week we'll be giving away a tote bag. All you have to do is leave a comment below and let us know what you are gonna use the bag for.

Winners will be picked on Friday afternoon.
If you're comment doesn't show up just be patient, we just have to approve it.

  149. said (3 years ago)

    There's so many uses! I could use this to bike/skate down to AKA or Milkcrate to scour through some vinyl and "tote" it back home. I could use it to carry my skate goods home from Kinetic or Exit. PA has got some nasty humididty in the summer, so I could use it to keep a fresh 'mont shirt, a chiller pair of emerica shoes(or 3:33), and a few bottles of water. As for other uses not skate related...this would bring my gf loads of happiness packed with goodies for a picnic from our local farmers at Greensgrove.
