I would like this bag, because I think it's cool and my wife needs something else to dust and/or trip over in the house.

I really need this bag. I carry my iPad, Macbook, Kindle, iPhone, and ALL my Mac|Life magazines with me all the time and I don't have a bag. However, all that heavy lifting I am positive I can easily take anyone in a bench pressing contest.

I could use it because I carry a ridiculous amount of items... like... an iPad, Macbook pro, iPhone, maclife of course :), a stapler...(don't ask), pencils, books, deodorant and sun glasses!

Yeah... that's a lot of stuff.
I could really use this bag because it seems like the perfect carrier for my carrying needs!
Plus... it would make me look a bit like Indiana Jones... and if any of you program... I bet you know what I mean when I say that I'll take whatever makes me look more attractive to the ladies... because last time I checked, saying "I'm a programmer" isn't really the most attractive thing to say about yourself... trust me... I've checked this out... ALOT.

Oh... and maybe I can bench press a little bit more than one of the editors... I don't know though because I spend to much time on the computer/ iPad to go to the gym...
Hmm... is it the physique or profession that makes women not want to date me?

Well I guess I'll never know unless you send me the bag! :)

I want this bag because it's awesome. While it might weigh a ton, it's a great bag and I would be proud to lug this thing around.

As for can I benchpress more than the editors over at MacLife? Eh, probably not seeing as how they've been reviewing this great bag. But, if I won this bag, I may be able to take them.

I can use that to pretty much carry everything I own.

I grew up in a family full of boys. I am the oldest of three and rough and tumble was a way of life for me for 27 years of my life. I am now married with two daughters under the age of 4 and a psychotic...female dog for lack of a better word. The level of emotional chaos is high in my life. I have also officially lost the toilet seat war for the rest of my life. My only partner in masculine crime was our cat...Ranger...and he has since moved on to the house next door where a father and his two sons live! I would love to have a saddle back bag that could bring a little added testosterone into my life. In all seriousness I love being a father of great women and I am married to a beautiful and intelligent woman...and our dog is ok too. I just love your bags and could put it to good use. My father in law has one and I have always had...dare I say...bag envy. I hope I am not too late for the competition and I wish all who have entered the best of luck!

Sincerely,

A Minority in a Sorority

After wearing out numerous messenger bags, this one looks like it can survive even me.... Kindly put my name in the hat.

I have always wanted a cow. And since I cannot own one in my neighborhood, having a bag that seems to be the leather equivalent of an entire cow may need to suffice.

I would play with my cow... um... bag, and take it on long walks. I might even try to train it to do some tricks, like carry my MacBook Pro and iPad simultaneously.

As for out-benching the Mac|Life editors... I am guessing I probably cannot, but chances are I could outrun them. I am pretty quick -- when not laden with a giant leather bag, anyway.

arkrazor

I could use it. I assume it must protect your hardware real well while traveling.
I think I could take 2 editors if pressed.

Johnston

Why do I want the bag?, well I need somewhere to put my stuff...

As for the bench press question. I tried to follow the steps that Dave gives on the website to get my own 5 peso coin and ended up losing my arm to a shifty matador before finding Senora Lupita. Never trust a guy with a "short cut" dressed like a bullfighter. Don't think I could bench press more with only one appendage.

Disclaimer...

Visit to Mexico loosely based on actual events taking place in Canada minus the arm losing and matador.

I was looking for a new bag to carry the kitchen sink around in... I think this fits the bill! Would love to win!

Read Saddleback's Warranty! 100 year warranty!!! Heck, yeah. I don't have a decent coffin so when I die I want to be cremated and buried in that bag. Saddleback also says my kids will fight over it when I'm dead. Well, I'd love to see them try to dig that bag up with me in it. Besides, at 7.5 lbs, I'll only need one pallbearer. Now, for actually using it while I'm alive, I can toss my Macbook Air in there and still be lighter an have more power than my old clunky Dell that has the nickname, "Brokeback Laptop"! Sweet on all accounts!!

This bag will add some masculinity to my professional look. It's hard to look tough when you are a librarian.

I could put that bag to work and get a workout too

Hubs would love it and he'd do his best to out bench press the team for it.

I have been drooling over these bags online for nearly a year. I haven't been able to bring myself to drop $500 plus on a bag that I can't "test drive" before I buy. I'd absolutely love winning one. I'll start doing pull-ups now so I'm ready for it.

I would stuff it with...well...stuff...including my new MaBook pro.....bt even better..would sniff the rawhide all day...;-)

Thanks

Ah Cowboy Up!!!
I would feel like I am with the original pony express with that bag!! Very cool bag indeed. I would carry my 17" Macbook Pro in style. The distressed leather and buckles are very retro looking. I have never seen anything like it.
That is a true man bag.

I am 6'0 250lbs so the editor thing isn't a problem!

While I know that I cannot beat the editors with my bench-press, I know I can work that bag like it's nobody's business! So please, pick me, Pick Me!

I want this bag because I wrote an extremely clever comment that was rejected for (mysteriously/inexplicably) triggering the spam filter. After rewriting it in 10 different variants I'm ready to show my endurance bench pressing too.

avatar

katemo

This is the bag I've been looking for all my life. I would love to carry my mac gear in it.

I can bench press your editors -- and I'm a chick!

I could use this bag if/when I get an internship in Nome Alaska. It would accompany me through the various airplanes to small islands, if it doesn't exceed their weight limit. Also, I can bench press some weight.

I am criminal defense attorney. This will carry my MacBook and iPad and fit right in when I'm in the courtroom.

That thing is huge! I could fit like 11 or 12 useless Gen 1 Apple TVs in it.

I need this bag!

I can definitely use the bag as my office bag for papers and other documents. Nice looking one.

So... Saddleback leather is the real deal.
Mac is the real deal.
What a combo! I cannot think of something more reliable, durable or stylish(sexy) to carry my Macbook, iPod, etc.

I am hard on my gear and excited that there is something finally that can stand up to the abuse.

And my kids will in inherit it. And maybe their kids. And maybe their kids and 100 years from now it will include the story about how I had to out-bench-press those Maclife guys, because I totally can!

And if I take care of it, it has a better chance of avoiding wrinkles as I will.

I can use it to carry my MacBook Pro and iPad to work!

Classy look to that bag. And roomy.
And I may not be able to take you, but my Landlord and other tenant sure as bejezzus can take y'all!!

Oh man, I'd wrestle your mom for this bag! I think I should win this bag because:

1. I just got my very first Mac (anything!) this Friday! I am in LOVE - so let's celebrate!
2. I have just been accepted in an internship program over the summer in Washington DC for natural resources public policy. This bag would make me the bees knees. Plus my new MacBook Pro really needs a stylish portable home amongst all my bureaucratty paraphernalia.
3. It reminds me of my horseback riding days with the gorgeous leather and equestrian straps. Drool.
4. And, damn, I'd make this bag look GOOD.

Thanks!!

I would love to have some really tangible to pass onto my kids, not jut my star wars toys.

loveisrising

yes, i would love to give this bag to my hubby because he's been wanting one for so long. and NO way i can bench press more than you guys, but's here's to carrying my 20 pound infant around everyday!

Let's be real.
Being a grown-up isn't easy, especially when it requires that I carry several bags to get all of my things from grad school to the office and back home again. I often feel that I give off the "frazzled bag lady" vibe instead of the confident young professional vibe. With this beautiful, giant bag in my posession, I would no longer have to look frazzled and would limit my bags to one!
I definitely cannot bench press more than the editors (and don't really care to), but I can definitely turn heads with a power walk, rocking heels and a pencil skirt, a fitted blazer, and the bag of a lifetime.

It speaks to me in a "spiritual" way... I feel I am at one with this bag....perhaps I was a "bag" in a previous life. I need this to complete my life....Please.... This could be my grandmother!!!

TheBreen

This bag is perfect! Not only will it hold my iPhone
Puny Editors! They can barely carry an argument
in its 'steampunk' case, but also my Victorian-era
let alone a burly case like this. I can whip them
surgical kit and iron lung! I MUST have it!
up one side of the Thames and down the other!

I would look so awesome with this bag. I am a librarian and I desperately need some coolness in my life and this bag is really cool. Imagine the comments people will make behind my back! Oh, the intrigue it will inspire.

Very Indiana Jones! I dig it!

If I won this bag, I would be able to stop carrying my messenger bag (a real messenger bag for riding bicycles) to my job in a corporate office. I could finally start looking like the young professional I am, instead of someone desperately trying to not grow up.

I'm fairly certain I cannot out-bench-press the MacLife editors, but seeing as I used to be a bicycle messenger, I can definitely carry a heavy bag on my back.

avatar

TheTick

Boy, that lusciously large leathery laptop loader would make me COOL!

Pick me, generous MacLIfe Editors, pick me!

Not sure what I would do with a 500lb bag, unless it's filled with 500lbs of Apple Products :D

avatar

dcross95020

I would use this bag to carry around my sad pc laptop (which I never use). And yes, I can bench press more than the MacLife editors because I can press my MacBook Pro at least 20 times before tuckering out!

avatar

sebourns

With this bag, I will be able to tote around my soon-to-be iPad & Macbook Pro with knowing that they will be protected. Currently I use a backpack to carry around my equipment. This bag will boost up my appearance and my customers won't doubt me on my professionalism. Concerning the bench-pressing - I honestly can say that I am no good competing against the MacLife editors. It's been almost 8 years since I last worked out in High School. So, no, I don't think I can bench-press more than the MacLife editors. I do hope I win this awesome prize!

As a former US Army Paratrooper, I am sure its bulk would not be an issue. I am now in law school and certainly cannot afford to buy a briefcase like this. It would make me look more professional and, given the current job market, every bit helps.

avatar

tonytonith

That's a pretty hot bag. Probably one of the manliest man-bags I've ever seen. I would put definitely put my MacBook in it along with other equally manly things like tweezers, facial scrubs, smelly lotions, hair products, etc. All kidding aside this bag is sexy- just like the Mac. Regarding bench pressing, I'm sure I can benchpress more than more than all the Mac Life editors can combined... with my left pinky...toe.
