The reason why Gura Gear is doing this kind of thing is for advertisement and more exposure.  Hey, chances of winning are slim but all of us that enter and post about it help them to increase their business.  So whether you win or not, its nice to see companies reaching out to the public with awesome incentives.  Win, great, nothing, buy it yourself.  :)

Of course, I'd still look to hear who were the winners from their last contest.
Entered, but the previous contest has left me speculating. The administrator never even responds to the people wondering who won the prize, so...

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.

Congrats, and thanks a lot for letting us all know. There are others still speculating on the original thread about the result, I shall insert your post over there.

You can probably buy more gear bags in the time you save and spend productively elsewhere...  :D

...no...I think the problem was an arrogant person who cannot operate their iPhone and who left the response that I read. I don't believe that the device was the problem.

I wasn't being arrogant, I actually meant what I said. I was mildly criticizing the fact that this contest only allows social media entries. I understand that this is all for promotion, but I had to reactivate my never-used Twitter account for this sole purpose.
Sorry if I offended you in some way, although I'm not exactly clear how.
Cheers.


P.S. By the way, an iPhone has a small screen and it's harder to read the whole comment you've composed. I can rebut by pointing out typographical and grammatical flaws, but I am not trying to pick a fight here.

I did not enter for exactly the same way (no social network account). So s..... them.
The funny thing is that I already have a Gura Gear Bataflae 26 which means I like their products...
