Summer Backpack Giveaway!

I'm always on-the-go. Whether I'm running around the city, filming videos or traveling for work, I'm on my feet. And don't get me wrong, that's how I like it. But I have this problem where I carry around heavy shoulder bags and they end up giving me the worst pains that shoot up into my neck. So naturally I'm excited when I find a cute bag that works for my lifestyle and doesn't weigh me down.

Keep reading for an amazing GIVEAWAY!

This Kestrel Backpack caught my eye about a month ago and I knew I needed it for summer. It's sophisticated yet casual because the top flap and straps are made from a beautiful tanned leather while the rest of the bag is a coated canvas. At first I didn't think it would be safe in the rain but after getting caught in a few springtime drizzles, I can say this bag holds up...leather and all!

I love that it's a chic backpack with a square body because I can fit my laptop inside for when I set up office at a coffee shop on a beautiful day. I can also stuff a change of workout clothes and my water bottle inside for those days I go directly to yoga after work. And the best part? It's hands-free so I can actually walk around with a coffee now! Do you know how long it's been since I could do that?

I've gotten so many compliments on this Kestrel Backpack in the short time I've had it that I decided to do a GIVEAWAY for Mizzfit readers! I know a lot of you are jet-setting working women and moms on-the-go, and this backpack is perfect for you!

It's the perfect size for work commuting, day trips, to use as a gym bag and for heading to the beach. The construction is incredibly lightweight and the straps feel like they're barely there. I wear mine with these studded espadrilles I got on sale from Rebecca Minkoff.

I like to mix brown and black leathers, and I don't think I'll ever tire of studs. It's the moto girl in me!

So, what do you think of this stylish multi-functional backpack?  Would you carry it to the gym and beyond? It's my new staple and it can be yours too if you enter this giveaway.

Just tell me how you'd style and use this Kestrel Backpack in your active life! Leave your answer in the comments section below.  Make sure to check out Kestrel's website too for more amazing bag styles. GOOD LUCK! 1 lucky winner will be chosen on June 2nd.
