Of course, I'd still like to hear who were the winners last time. (Full disclosure: I have a horse in that race!)

Not so nice to see they are letting us down on this very thread...

I should think it would be invaluable PR for Gura if they rewarded everyone who participated in their last contest with a nice bag. After all, we've been patient! (Well, most of us!)
With only about three dozen entries, it shouldn't cost them all that much. And, all the favorably publicity for them, as that ad goes... priceless!

I didn't release the names of the winners from the last contest, there was an issue previously and I've chosen to keep peoples names private.

I wish we had heard some time back that there were winners, as well as a general congratulations to all who had participated. Guess I'm old-fashioned in this regard, but I still appreciate an acknowledgement.
Don't get me wrong, I really like the guys at Gura Gear. They make some great products, but, if they'd they been a little better in communicating, they'd be seen as a class act.

To me this behavior is highly unprofessional...

Copy-pasted from the other (new) giveaway thread (congrats, Jon Austin!):


I won a Chobe 19-24L (with the photo gear insert) during the last CR Gura Gear giveaway. I don't recall the exact date (mid-December, maybe), but the package had to pass through UPS' Dallas (Mesquite), TX hub, which was shut down due to weather, and so lots of deliveries were delayed for more than a week.

Anyway, Braden Thompson of Gura Gear contacted me by e-mail when I won, confirmed my shipping address, and provided the UPS tracking number. All very professional and efficient.

As for the bag itself, it's a great little day / overnight kit, very flexible & configurable, well-made & stylish. My only wish is that the dual zippers that open the top would unzip all the way down the sides of the bag to its base / bottom, so that the top would open more fully. As it is, it's a little difficult to access gear in the photo insert and to remove the insert when not needed. Also, the bag has to be in its 24L configuration in order to accept the photo insert.

I've entered this contest as well, although I'm sure my odds of winning again are very small. But I won't hesitate to consider Gura Gear products, the next time I'm in the market.

Thanks, sagittariansrock. I would just like to note that the giveaway I entered was much like the current one: entering my e-mail address, with more chances from Twitter & Facebook entries, etc. I didn't take any photos of my gear for the contest I entered. Might there have been two contests at around the same time?
