For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with WaterField Designs to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an awesome organizational setup for Apple devices that includes a Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief, Tech Pocket, and Gear Pouch.

The Hitch Crossbody Brief is a vertical briefcase that comes in either full ($259) or compact ($249) size options. The compact version of the Laptop Brief is designed to fit a MacBook Air or an iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard (or similarly sized devices), while the full is designed to fit devices similar in size to the 16-inch MacBook Pro, which is Apple's largest notebook computer.

Available in either black ballistic or brown waxed canvas with full-grain leather accents, the Crossbody Brief is durable and designed to hold up well for years to come.

There are two built-in padded pockets lined with soft fabric to keep your devices safe, along with organizational pockets and a key hook to keep smaller accessories and devices organized. There's a front pocket that's meant to keep bulky items from bulging out, and the gold liner makes it easy to find items inside.

The Crossbody Brief can be worn as a crossbody bag as the name suggests, or held in the hand to serve as a vertical briefcase. The vertical construction is designed to evenly distribute weight to make it comfortable to carry, and when worn on the shoulder, there's an adjustable Supreme Suspension Strap.

The bag is weather resistant and it includes YKK zippers to keep water out, and when used with a luggage set, it can be placed over the handle of a suitcase with the passthrough back pocket.


Along with the Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief, WaterField's Tech Pocket and Gear Pouch add-ons offer even more organizational options. The Gear Pouch, available in three sizes and multiple colors (starting at $39), is designed to keep all your cords, dongles, power adapters, and other small odds and ends together so they don't get lost in your bag.

There are multiple internal pockets to keep things neatly organized, along with a zip outer pocket and a main middle compartment for larger accessories. The Gear Pouch's compact design is meant to make it easy to fit inside other bags, and the three-quarter zipper lets you get to what you need fast.

The Tech Pocket, priced at $49, is similar to the Gear Pouch, but instead of a top zipper, there's a magnetic closure for those who prefer an accessory bag that's easier to get into.

Sized to hold dongles, adapters, earbuds, an iPhone, and more, the Tech Pocket is smaller and more compact. It has a soft, plush lining to keep your gear from getting scratched, and there's a quick access zippered front pocket for things like keys.

It’s nice. But I have come to wonder does anyone actually win anything? I mean most entry type contests like this there’s a winner announced. MacRumors has their bags and these contests all the time. They should state username of winner. Otherwise, truly makes me think there’s something fishy going on here.
They don't release the winners for privacy reasons. And if it means anything to you, I won a Satechi keyboard in one of their giveaways a while back. Besides, if MacRumors was going to be dishonest, they could just make up random names for winners anyway.

People definitely win! I put a lot of work into the giveaways every week. Setting them up with different companies, writing the articles, collecting winner info, getting prizes sent out, etc. Not sure what we would get out of not sending prizes, the whole reason we put the work in is to get stuff to readers.

I prefer to keep as much info private as I can for winners (and entrants), and thankfully I don't need to share names because some of the giveaway winners have been kind enough to let people know that our giveaways are legitimate when questions like this come up.

I can vouch for this company as a repeat customer. Quality stuff made in San Francisco that looks stylish and lasts. They also have great customer service. For me it started small with a nice carrying case for my Nintendo DS and PS Vita years, and years ago. They're still in great shape. Most recently, a couple of weeks ago I bought a case for my iPad Pro and Nintendo Switch. I had emailed them about a carrying case/bag and whether or not an iPad Pro with new magic keyboard would fit. Got an answer within the hour, really fast. Now to try my luck for this bag! :D

This looks very interesting. I have a 15 inch Mac - I wonder if I can squeeze it into the small or require the larger one. I would prefer the smaller one. I guess I'll see.
The laptop sleeve of the compact size Hitch can fit only up to a 13" laptop, unfortunately. However a larger laptop may fit snuggly in the main compartment area. If you cover your Mac in a shell case then you don't really need the laptop sleeve anyway.

You can ask the staff at Waterfield Designs in you are unsure. They are very friendly and knowledgable.

I have not searched recently, but last time I did I came up with this list. If it fairly common to see members mention in threads like this they have won before.


I've seen posts in these threads where forum members mentioned they have won in these contests and received their prize.

Edit: Here are a few comments I was able to find.
