What’s your #PackMentality? Show us and you could win a $250 L.L.Bean Gift Card!

Never leave the house without a pack full of your daily essentials? Then our latest contest is for you! We want to see your #PackMentality—that is, how do you use your backpack? Whether you load it up with snacks and water for a day on your favorite hiking trails or you fill it with your latest book club selections, no two packs have the same purpose.


Here’s how to participate: From July 23 – August 11, submit photos of your Pack Mentality to us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Use the hashtag #PackMentality to share them with us, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $250 L.L.Bean Gift Card.


And get crafty! From those entries, we will select five finalists based on the creativity of your submissions. We’ll post them on Facebook during the week of August 12-18 and everyone can vote for their favorites. Here are the prizes:


–       1st place: $250
–       2nd place: $150
–       3rd place: $100


We’ll announce the winner on August 19. The top three vote-getters will win L.L.Bean Gift Cards, good toward whatever gear you have your eye on (even a brand new backpack!)


Need inspiration? Looks like some of our fans have already got the hang of it…


Facebook fan Andy S. is quite “The Adventurer” with his pack. This is his photo from the top of Mt. Skylight in the Adirondack High Peaks!


Packs are made for “The Traveler,” as seen here in Katy C.’s adorable photo.


We can’t forget “The Hiker.” Could this be your #PackMentality?


Remember, you can enter on Facebook, Twitter AND Instagram.

If your old pack has seen a few too many adventures, check out L.L.Bean’s latest backpack styles.


So…What’s your #PackMentality?
