GIVEAWAY: The Ultimate Carryall – Crumpler’s Functional + Chic Wren Tote!

Known for their stylish + functional luggage, bags and accessories, Crumpler is a go-to brand for tech-savvy travelers (i.e. BLOGGERS like moi). The Aussie brand, which has a HQ in Brooklyn, recently introduced its first women’s collection: Wren.

The eight-piece collection is perfect for travel AND every day. The bags are weather-resistant on the outside to protect your precious iPhone and laptop from sudden downpours, and soft on the inside so nothing gets scratched. There are also plenty of pockets inside so you can stay organized on the go.

I’m loving the utilitarian-chic vibe of this collection. If you are too, then I have some fun news – I’m giving away my favorite tote from Crumpler to one lucky reader!

This fun polka dot style has adjustable straps so it can be worn several different ways, and the versatile design even allows you to fold it for increased weather resistance. There’s an easy-access phone pocket (for when I see something I need to Instagram ASAP), a zipped hanging pocket, removable coin pouch (so useful for traveling in Europe for all those Euros!) and a large slip pocket to accommodate any other technology you may be carrying.
