Poler Napsack Contest: What’s In The Bag, Dad?

12.16.11 – Kevin Wilkins

Our good friends at Poler came to us with a simple idea — let’s give some stuff away. We were like, “Hell yeah, good friends at Poler. Let’s!”

So, once a week for a month, we’re going to give you a chance to win one of Poler’s hooded Napsacks, perfect for sleeping wherever you might find yourself sleeping — a friend’s couch, the back of a pickup, side of the road, or inside a tent.

Respectfully based on the good works of The Burning House, we’d like you to show us what you carry with you on those trips you take — skate trips, daytrips, week trips, month trips. Call it What’s In The Bag, Dad? Just unload your bag on the floor, shoot a photo, and post it to The Skateboard Mag Facebook page with a simple description:





List of your stuff (short-winded):
