Outdoor x Pac-Man

I may be a kid born in the 90s but regardless of era, I’m all up for video games. As if it was just like yesterday, a retro game of the 80s came swooping down to tickle my gaming delight. Outdoor Products collaborated with the legendary game, Pac-Man, to craft backpacks that speak to an old school gamer’s soul. Like they all say, nothing beats the classics. 

I still remember playing Pac-Man World on the Playstation 1. Back then, I had no idea what I was doing.  Completing levels was like a random miracle that proved to be successful on its own, ha! Not to mention, all I did was get power-ups for our heroic chomper. Fast forward to today, I finally managed to play the original game in all its retro glory—of course, I was also enthusiastic about the backpacks (excuse the gamer vibes).

To my utmost delight, the event looked like it came straight out of the 80s gaming scenario. Plethora of old gaming consoles was partnered with cartridges that looked all too familiar and that’s not even the good part. Lo,’ and behold, as if the gaming retro gods answered my prayers, we were given the opportunity to play Pac-Man in a real arcade! I basically hogged one arcade to myself, because you know, it was too good to be true.

The event looked like one big Pac-Man party: guests mingled over Pac-Man shaped food, a Pac-Man arcade competition was held—in which the winner will bring home a Pac-Man Arcade, a Pac-Man mascot was roaming around the place, and my favorite was the live Pac-Man simulation. The live game had us panicking over tennis balls while avoiding Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde—the player with the most number of balls bagged a prize.

But with all the Pac-Man hype exploding all over the place, let’s not forget that it wouldn’t be possible without the Outdoor Backpack. Sure enough, the bags were a true game changer when it comes to one’s preference on durability and style. Because even though you’re not a retro fan in general, the collaboration showcased backpacks were still flexible enough to cater to anyone’s style. 

But if you’re a gamer like me, then the awesome details that come in the bag does ring a nostalgic tone to old school games.  The backpacks do come in amazing designs and each of them has their own version of highlighting the mighty chomper and the colorful ghosts. 

Celebrate 35 years with Pac-Man by getting your retro vibe on with the latest collection of Outdoor Backpacks! It’s definitely the perfect vintage backpack you can take wherever you may go; Classic and sturdy at it’s finest.
