Quiksak Giveaway!

**Not Sponsored**

Reached out to the nice people at http://www.quiksak.com/
Asked if they would be interested in a giveaway and they were on board!
So many of us change in awkward places (behind our cars after sweaty runs/rides, in cars, in portos after races). Thought all of us could benefit from a QuickSak! 
 
From their blog: 

The Quik Sak allows individuals to easily change clothes without using a towel for privacy, then transforms into a wet/dry bag by activating the draw cords on either end for easy storage of your wetsuit or sporting gear.

GIVEAWAY - Ends 2/11/2016.  Some items you can do everyday!

Check out their site!
