Just like last week, we're starting off week 2 of The Urban Gentleman Giveaways with trying to make almost everybody a winner.
Today's feature item: RUMBA Watches. (something for our urban gent athletes)
I'm sure you're familiar with them, they're those watches you've probably seen at the checkout desk of some trendy boutiques. You've probably also seen them in a few street style photos this year — many stylish Londoners will buy several and wear them all at once. I look at these as a great replacement for guys who like to wear those livestrong rubberbands or similar rubbery wrist items. And since they come in so many different colors and styles, I can also see buying two or three colors to match your favorite team(s). For example, I'll probably have on red, white, and black rumba watches when I'm watching The Falcons kick ass at the Super Bowl in February (ha, ha, ha y'all know we're gonna win it all). And at only $22 a pop, for the original version, they make for great stocking stuffers for everyone from athletes to fashion lovers. (…did I mention they're waterproof?)
30 readers will be chosen today (and we'll be randomly giving away 20 more throughout the week) so 50 total winners. To win you must comment on this post, comment on our Facebook, and/or re-tweet on Twitter. SO link to us on your facebook/twitter pages, tell all your friends, and tweet your heart out… today plenty of you will be #winners.
The 20 random winners will be chosen from theurbangent.com entries only, meaning you must comment on the posting. The 20 winners will be emailed directly.

Duluth Pack sent us a few items to try out and I must say, I'm loving all of it. The scoutpack, featured above, has become one of my new staples.
Duluth Pack. Founded in 1882 by Camille Poirer in Duluth, Minnesota. In the 1870s Camille started a small shoe store, then in 1882 filed for a patent on a new type of "packsack." It was a canvas sack, that closed with a buckled flap, had shoulder straps and other new features. It was known as the Poirer Pack, and is now called the original Duluth Pack. (below)
