Day pack giveaway Trailside Games

This giveaway is over. Congratulations to our winners, Paula D. from Colorado and Jessica P. from California!

Stay up to date on discounts, giveaways and other news by subscribing to our newsletter.


The holidays are just around the corner, and we want to help make gift giving a littler easier for you! Enter our Holiday Giveaway to win one of two prizes to brighten your season and bring joy to others.

First prize is a day pack from Granite Gear, the Taku 24. With this pack, you’ll be prepared for any curveballs the season throws your way. Or you can load up and escape the hustle and bustle with a day trip on the trail.

Second prize is a 6-pack of Backcountry the Game. That’s right. We said a 6-pack! Don’t spend your time running all over town and fighting the crowds when you could win 3 copies of both the Appalachian Trail and Great Smoky Mountain editions of Backcountry. That takes care of a stocking stuffer for both kids, gifts for your nephew who just became an Eagle Scout, the Secret Santa game at work, and your Dad who’s not really much of an outdoorsman but just saw A Walk in the Woods and wants to connect with his inner thruhiker.

And you’ll still have a copy left over for yourself.

Keep reading for more details on the prizes and how to enter. Or skip directly to the entry form!
