Mission Workshop: New Gobi Beanie & FB Contest

MW is hosting a FB contest to win one their new Gobi beanies. The Gobi is a winter-weight merino wool beanie, perfect for those winter months that are starting to hit us. I might swoop one of these this weekend in SF!!

Details on how to win one:
To win one, post your best over-stuffed Vandal or Rambler backpack pic on the Mission Workshop Facebook Wall and the top five posts with the most "Likes" will win a beanie. We'll pick the winners on Monday Nov. 14.
Now don't think this can be just any old photo, we're thinking something like a tree's worth of over-ripe bananas or hundreds of Barbie heads. Get creative, show us and the rest of the MW fans something we haven't seen before.
If you don't have a Mission Workshop bag, you can still pick up a Gobi. Enter the promo code UNICORN at checkout and get one FREE when you order any bag. We only set aside 25 for this promo so don't miss out.

Swoop the beanie here.
