Giveaway: North to South Messenger Bag by Tucker & Bloom
Friday is giveaway day. Comment to win!
This week’s giveaway is a fantastic messenger bag from Tucker and Bloom, a father and son company based out of Nashville. David and Case Bloom took their experience in travel wear and design and used it to establish this small business after the travel wear industry went into a decline after 9/11.
These guys know what adventurers need from a good bag—and they deliver!
What you need to know:
- This bag can hold all your things! Dimensions: 12.5” Long X 13.5” High X 4.5″ Deep
- Each bag comes with a lifetime warranty and is made in the company’s Nashville factory
- The outer canvas is water-resistant (which is great if you live in a wet place like Portland, OR)
- This giveaway is available to readers worldwide. Anyone can win!
- Our cats and biased judges will pick someone on Sunday night at 6pm PST
Enter this week’s giveaway by posting a comment. Check back on Sunday night and we’ll announce the winner!
Update: Comments are now closed. Congrats to Gwen, selected by cats and a random number generator to win the bag! Everyone else, thanks for entering. We’ll have another giveaway soon.
Good luck to everyone!
What a great looking bag, and it’s even Made in the USA! And it will keep my stuff dry here in the PacNorWet.
Looks like an awesome bag!
Sweet bag! Loving all the tips on this site. Picked up a few cards, used responsibly, and starting to build my reward accounts.
The quick brown fox looked really baller with his Tucker and Bloom messenger bag. He took it everywhere with him.
I hope the judging cats will pick this Kat. She always loves a sturdy, waterproof, handsome bag. 🙂
I know the perfect man to gift this beautiful bag to this Christmas! Although, it would be hard not to keep it for myself. It’s gorgeous!
That’s a great looking bag!
This is a lovely bag. I don’t see a lot of women with canvas bags, and I’m not sure why. This bag is beautiful, functional and it’s built to last, which is so hard to find. Thanks for sharing.
I love that your cats get to be judges. You should make a video of their selection process.
made in USA!
I love the design of this bag, and how it looks like a piece that will allow you to mold it through use. It’s something that using won’t break, but instead will make it yours by leaving your marks from your own adventures on it.
That bag would make the most Spectacular of all Diaper/Adventure Bags. Perfect for getting all my and my 2 Toddlers Supplies safely through our expeditions in cars, buses, and trains.
Nice looking bag! Would love to use it!
Thank you for this opportunity and happy holidays!
Cool bag, thanks for the giveaway!
Great bag and great giveaway!
Kick ass bag for sure!
Bag. Cool. Nuff said
Lovely bag! Thanks for the opportunity.
Love the bag! Going to Sierra Leon soon. It would be so handy to take with me.
Could really use this bag!
Such a great carry on bag, especially!
I have been looking for a bag to accompany me on my badass adventures. This one looks like a winner.
This is an awesome looking bag. Good luck to everyone. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
I love Jeffrey’s comment. This community is so positive. Good luck to everyone as well! 🙂
Love the story behind the company 🙂
Are your cats susceptible to bribery? I could slip them a little catnip under the table…
Looks like that bag will hold all my dreams of making me a non-conformist, too.
Awesome!! I’ve looking at the Tucker & Bloom bags for a while now. Would be a great gift for one of my family members.
Beautiful messenger bag! The last bag I had was from Saddle Back Leather – they make great products but it was a laptop bag and as it turns out, wasn’t all that functional because I couldn’t carry all of my extra cords, books, notepads, etc.
This one looks both beautiful and functional!
Wow, that’s a nice pack! I’ve been procrastinating on replacing my old JanSport backpack. I’ve had it for over a decade, and it currently features two holes, two broken zippers, a worn-out strap, and lots and lots of character. I kind of hate to get rid of it, we’ve been through so much together. But I’d happily replace it with something like this, something that can put up with whatever I put it through! Thanks for the chance!
Stylin’! Love it. 🙂
Sweet bag made in the USA.
I love it!
That is a fine looking bag!
Count me in!
That bag would make me look so cool… even if it was just filled with diapers and formula. Wah, wah, wah.
This bag looks amazing!!
That’s a great looking bag, and I’d love to give it to my husband of 30 years!

Looking at this knapsack I think of Indiana Jones and great adventures ahead of me! Life is bound to be more exciting with this bag thrown over my shoulder!
Lookin’ back on the track, for a little green bag…
Very nice bag!
As a 22 year old I someone wonder if I was born in the wrong generation… I’m so technologically behind… I just started experimenting with Twitter and I’m so excited that I can keep up to date with you, Chris!
But then I see how the blogging world helps us travel junkies connect and I realize I was born at just the right time! I just have to continue learning how to use all this stuff to my advantage 😉
I love the classic styling.
Pick me, please! I love cats (and biased judges!)
Awesome! Been looking at messenger bags for bike commuting.

That’s a lovely looking bag. Good luck to everyone.
I would love to have this.
Canvas, stylish, made in the USA? I NEED this bag.
This comes right at the time I’m looking for a replacement to my trusty old little bag… When I looked at the bag on the company’s website, I was put off at first by the mention of leather in the header of the product’s description page (I’m a vegan), but reading the details down the page I was happy to see it described as “veg leather”. Yay!
Seems like a good replacement for my current bag!
Awesome bag, it looks durable but sylish
What an awesome bag! Thanks for sharing.

Just saw Chris on CreativeLive.com and learned to become a travel hacker. Now all I need is a good bag to take with me.
That looks like such a great bag. If I got it, the first thing I’d do is pay it forward by giving someone else something nice.
This bag looks awesome! I think it’d make the perfect Christmas gift for my boyfriend.
I want to take this on my next adventure. Or stuff all my writing projects in here and go somewhere to write.

Well before I was even aware of what I was doing I had gone to the Tucker & Bloom website to see what this bag was about…and looking at their range. Promotional success I say and so simple

Appears as though a dozen Tim Hortons donuts will fit in there. A necessity for living in the North and going to the South, as I do– and as the bag’s name suggests.
I’ve been dreaming of owning one of your fine bags since Marla’s first post. To win one would be spectacular!
Great looking bag. Thanks for the chance to win.
