High Sierra Sport Day Pack-Review and Giveaway!

I'm sure many of you have heard of High Sierra Sport Company-a family owned business that sells great quality luggage, backpacks, etc. When I contacted them about sponsoring a review and giveaway on my blog, they graciously offered one of their Day packs for review!

I was sent the Malcolm day pack. It is sooo nice! Plenty of room, and very well-made. I am using it mainly for a laptop bag (it has a cushioned area for the laptop!), and I love all the compartments in it. My last laptop bag/backpack wore ou
t (the straps ripped off) within about 6 months of having it (I probably carry more stuff with my laptop than most people...2 external hard drives, a fan/cooling pad, etc.). This one feels like it will last much longer than my other bag, though!





Here is a little info about High Sierra Sport Company:


"
