Eastpak was founded in 1952 by Monte Goldman, creating high-quality duffel bags, backpacks and safety equipment for the US Army. Mark Goldman, Monte’s son, noticed the gap in the market when he joined university and saw that all the “cool” students were carrying their belongings in army issue duffel bags. Monte’s lightbulb moment led to the brand’s creation of durable and stylish bags for the mainstream masses. Now the brand enjoys popularity across the globe and offers a 30 year warranty on their backpacks and luggage. Stylish, versatile and fantastic value for money, check out our Eastpak selection here at shore.co.uk.
