Founded in 1952 by Monte Goldman, Eastpak began by making duffel bags and backpacks for the U.S Army. It took over 20 years (1976) for Eastpak to begin selling their bags to the general public, this happened by Monte joining his fathers (Mark Goldman) company finding a niche market for it's military spec bags. The padded pak'r was an overnight success, thus the Eastpak brand was born.
Eastpak continue to produce top quality bags. "For people who live, work and play in the city. i.e. For people like you."
