Europak Derby Backpack for professionals and business travelers (SRP PHP 3,649.75)

Europak Derby Backpack Bag

You’ve seen me in my series of Instagram post and Facebook mentions of this backpack that Im always using, and after some months of test and try, I can finally say that Europak is a perfect blogger bag. So check out my feature and review below and also get to know the feature of a Europack Derby Backpack.

So here’s my encounter with Europak.
I was introduced to this new bag brand by the manufacturer and also distributor of Europak and Kinetix bags. I learned from them that the Europak bag brand is present in the local market for years, but only few people got chance to patronize and noticed because of the so many kinds of bag brands that are available.

I was offered to try and check the Europak’s current model, the “Derby Backpack” a kind of back pack bag that is perfect and fit for professionals and business travelers. When I was introduced to this kind of bag, I realized that I need it in my blogging career, because there are so many times that Im using a kind of bag that is not fit with my attire, for example, I attended a business meeting in Manila, and I was wearing this black and tie attire, then I noticed that my back packing bag for travel aren’t classy with my attire. I think I was the only guy in the hotel to have a mismatch of bag that night.

I travel around in every blogger gig that I do almost everyday, and I lived in the outskirts of Manila, so Im required to bring everything that I need for my blogger work, that’s why I always use a back pack for my to bring the “Every day carry” items and a back pack is the best bag to store everything during my travel.

So having a Europak Derby Backpack is a perfect timing for my blogger gig needs, with the use of this bag, I can now wear a formal, semi formal or business attire during my blogger gig, and the Europak Derby Backpack always matches my agenda and business meeting.

So here’s how I use it in my daily activities.

And also perfect for my business travel and meeting, it do blends in my attire and also my career as a blogger. Im glad that the black color of the bag and the business traveler bag style can match on different clothing I wear.

The bag gave a classy and also masculine look. That’s why I will no longer bring and use my backpacking bag whenever Im wearing a long sleeve polo or a black and tie attire.
