Crave giveaway: Alchemy Goods bags made from recycled tires

This week, we have two unique bags from Seattle-based Alchemy Goods. They're made from recycled bike inner tubes and have a definite hipster vibe.

Congrats to Luong S. of Rosemead, Calif., for winning a copy of Smith Micro Anime Studio Debut 10 animation software in last week's giveaway.

It's hard to find a backpack that really stands out from the typical blah-blah-blah bag, but this week's prize definitely does. It's a Brooklyn backpack from Seattle-based Alchemy Goods that's made from recycled bike inner tubes. It's a big backpack, measuring 18 inches high by 12 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep, that can accommodate a 15-inch laptop in its padded internal laptop sleeve. It's water-resistant and highly durable, and (need we say it?) looks terribly hip.

Normally, the Alchemy Goods Brooklyn backpack would run you $148, but this one's coming to you for $0. And as an added bonus, we're tossing in another Alchemy Goods product, an Eastlake 10-inch laptop tablet sleeve worth $32. It's also made from bicycle inner tubes. So what do you have to do to bag both of these? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
