The Eastpak Padded Pak'r backpack was first constructed way back in 1976 when Eastpak's founder's son came up with an idea to produce simple backpacks for university students. Before this, Eastpak was known as 'Eastern Canvas Products' and was manufacturing high quality duffles and backpacks for the U.S. Army.
The Padded Pakr is a simple classic backpack with one large compartment and a front zippered pocket. It has thick padded shoulder straps and a padded back panel to maximise comfort. That's it - simple.
When developing the company from an army supplier to the brand it is today, Eastpak stayed true to their heritage by constructing it from one square piece of military strength fabric. This process reduces the number of seams required in the bag and the remaining seams are double stitched for extra strength.
We like the Padded Pak'r Daypack because of it's simplicity, quality and heritage. It's a pack that you can take anywhere and it'll never get in the way. Pack your jumper, water bottle, iPad and interchangeable lens camera, then hit the city. You'll have everything you need and nothing you don't. Your pack will remain subtle and look great.
