My mom and I were walking in front of a men's store and when I saw the gray Eastpack in plain sight, I immediately made a bee-line for it. I ended up getting the darker gray, which is almost a green, gunmetal gray.
I already own an Eastpack from one of my travels when I was 9-10 years old. These guys last a lifetime, and come with a 30 year warranty.
I paid €50 for the backpack, which is, now I realize, about €10 more than MSRP. Oh well. I'm still happy with my purchase, and am now using it to get to and fro work. My lunch and clutch have never traveled so well ^^
