The Epperson Mountaineering Day Pack takes a classic piece from yesteryear — the 1970s backpack — and makes it better, adding modern features while maintaining its throwback good looks. It features a spacious main storage compartment, and its similarly expansive front pocket has an internal organizer for everyday convenience. Various leather patches and straps, complemented with zipper pull cords constructed from 100% cow leather, serve to add functionality while also providing a depth of character that improves with wear. Speaking of which, durability is enhanced with bar tacks in critical tension areas, guarantee long-term strength. The proverbial icing on the cake is the appealing bright shade of orange that finishes the bag’s waxed cotton shell.
