I have owned my Eastpak backpack since my junior year of high school. The trusty Eastpak bag has seen me through my final two years of high schoo, my four years of college and one year in the working world and has never let me down. That’s 7 years of daily hard usage put onto one backpack and it has held up extremely well. I have one small tear in the bottom of one of the pouches and that’s it. Other than the regular wear and tear and some stains and a funny smell (that is mostly due to me), the Eastpak bag is in great condition. I recommend anyone who is looking to buy a backpack give Eastpak backpacks a hard, long look. I sure would love to purchase another one in the future.
