Desperate Backpack Search

I’m on a desperate backpack search! The Mr has a backpack that he has had for years and I mean YEARS! He had it long before I met him which was 9 years ago. It is just a simple looking black Surfanic backpack with 2 large pockets and several smaller pockets and he absolutely loves it as he can cram tons of shopping in there.

He regularly manages to carry an impressive amount of shopping back from town!

There are 2 large zip up pockets, both with inner pockets. One inner pocket is A4 size with cushioning allowing you to keep documents etc flat and uncreased.

The smaller pocket of the two has a few little pockets inside and a clip.

On the sides there are two mesh side pockets which he usually stores sunglasses and a drink in.Lastly there is a small front pocket he puts his keys in for easy access.

The shoulder pads and back of the bag itself is well padded. It also has a carry handle and a chest strap.

Needless to say this is pretty damn impressive for a pretty regular sized backpack to carry those kinds of weights so often and last for so long & unfortunately after a lot of use and abuse this beloved backpack (AKA Mary Poppins bag) is beginning to die.

The shoulder strap is slowly coming lose and the cats have used it as a scratching post several times leaving a nice long rip along the bottom, he refuses to let it rest as we have searched high and low for an exact copy!


This is where you my lovely readers come in.. I would absolutely love to find him either this exact backpack or a very very similar one.

I have spent hours searching and unfortunately he finds most of the new surfanic designs quite garish and would much rather find something closer to what he already has.

Has anyone spotted one of these in a shop? On a website? Do you or a family member have one in very good condition hidden away somewhere you would be willing to sell?

If anyone does have any information please leave a comment or contact me using the Get in touch page. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated!!

    I too had a favourite backpack which I used till it practically disintegrated and sadly, I haven't found another that quite matched the favourite. Good luck. Thanks for sharing with #abitofeverything

        Aww wow! 😕 Do you think they may have just stopped selling them or there maybe a newer model of that backpack out now? Have you tried just googling the name of the backpack ? Xx

          Probably to be fair it is so old I think the only way I can find an identical one is if theres one in an old warehouse 😂 the bags almost as old as me! I have found one or 2 he doesn't mind but he still wants to wait it out and see if we can find a copy haha xx
