Replacement Eddie Bauer Backpack
(Project 365 Day 346)
So just before my Europe trip, I posted a project 365 photo of my Eddie Bauer backpack that I got over a decade ago. I bragged about its robustness and its lifetime warranty. Ironically, the backpack gave out when I was in Rome. The zipper busted open! Luckily, my dad happened to have a safety pin with him that we used to hold the zipper together for a while.
Today, I went to the Eddie Bauer store, and they honored the lifetime warranty. They gave me a $30 store credit, which I used towards a new $40 (on sale) backpack. I miss the leather bottom of my old backpack, but this new one has more, like, pockets and stuff. And a padded back. Still, not bad to spend $10 on a new backpack!
