Backpack EPE Palooka 75l + 30l

Got my new backpack from Ebay, Kathmandu was selling 260-300 after 50% discount, Mountain designer on Albert street is selling about 230-300 but they dont have the large daypack i am after, another camping store near Borders on Albert Street sells pretty expensive backpack unknown brand too.

So I decided ebay was my best option considering the seller is at Moreton Queensland and shipping was only 13 dollars. I later found out there are 1 or 2 more camping stores in Brisbane CBD but what the heck I have made up my mind check online for EPE prices.

SO i bought this backpack for about 230 dollars including shipping. The main reason is it's daypack being 1 of the largest design available. What's more is that it's got lifetime manufacturer warranty(provided its not damaged o purpose).

Reason for such a daypack is to fit my 15inch dell XPS laptop. When i asked the seller the measurements were 1-2cm shorter but when it arrived it fits perfectly and whats more is that it has got a compartment for laptop too! Brilliant!

Here is the link , just found its 10 dollars cheaper after i bought it...mofo.....

Here goes the pictures

Left backpack, right daypack
ipod port(such robust marketing word, its just a hole!) Good quality zip (some YKK zippers, i dont know what is this), and most importantly i was looking for bottle holder .it has got 2. nice one.
The silver part is rain cover , the other black EPE wording is the cover for the backpack shoulder strap for when you check it it wont damage the shoulde strap. Here both wrappers are hidden nicel tucked under the bag.
Adjustable should strap, height and waist.
The fish net style thing there is meant to compact the luggage*shrugs*
Same picture as above it has got an aluminium bar to hold the bag horizontally.
the overview inside. so many compartments and i cant RTFM (Read the fucking manual) because there is NONE!
another compartment i think meant for sleeping bag.
overview at the back
This is how it attaches itself to the main back pack

how did you find the pack after using it? Am thinking of getting the same one

Hi Jessica,
This was 2 years back. not sure if they have better model now.

Anyway this bag built quality is really solid. I loved it.

but it does take a bit of strength to carry this as i am only 168cm. so do consider on the size.

Jessica said...

Hmm... well i just rang epe trying to find somewhere i could look at it and they said it's a really new bag so no one has ordered it yet except wildearth so might be a newer model... Problem is they only have the 75, i would prefer the 65 cos I'm only 152cm LOL but it's currently on special for $149 so i'm like 'uuummmmm' lol

I'd suggest you rethink about your options or other brand.

or test it out on other brand with roughly the same size.

i am 168 and the bag is huge , but i guess thats the way it meant to be for backpacks?

thats the inconvenience of online shopping.

good luck!
