Whenever relatives from US and Canada would send me outdoor apparel and gear, the name Eddie Bauer seemed to pop up frequently. I get flash lights and even shirts as I grow up with the brand. Eddie Bauer is already a household name there having been a pioneer outdoor lifestyle wear since 1920. He was also the guy who designed flight suits for the American Airforce, patented the shuttle cock birdie and outfitted Jim Whittaker, the first American to summit Mt Everest just to name a few of his milestones. Adding to this milestone is the opening of its first two stores in Southeast Asia, here in the Philippines.
I was looking around the newly opened Eddie Bauer concept store in SM Megamall’s new wing and this Eddie Bauer Rippac Packable Daypack caught my attention. I’ve always have this thing for anything “packable” travel essentials. They are usually light and easily goes together with my other travel gear. So I bought the packable daypack and has been using it for three months now. Here’s my field test review of the Eddie Bauer Rippac Packable Daypack.
