The 90s are back with these OUTDOOR x PAC-MAN Backpacks!


Recently the FlipGeeks Fam was invited to the launch of Outdoor’s Pac-Man backpacks. Pac-Man was your introduction to video games if you grew up in the 80s or 90s. Before the Nintendos, Playstations and Xboxes, Pac-Man was the go-to game at the arcades. The game was simple to pick-up, you just need to chomp your way through dots while escaping ghosts.



You know you’re getting old when you’re excited about the stuff from your childhood and all the memories and nostalgia they bring. As soon as we got to A Space in Makati, we were immediately transported back to the 90s. Guests sporting their 90s wear, the pop-culture memorabilia, the long couches, party plates and cups, pizza, chips and crackers, it was like a scene out of a coming-of-age movie, and at the center of it all was the star of the night, Pac-Man arcade machines.





Aside from the epic party, Outdoor also treated the guests to a night full of games and awesome prizes. There was even a real-life Pac-Man maze wherein players are asked to fill their Outdoor x Pac-Man backpacks with tennis balls while trying to escape the ghosts. It was like a game of tag, once the ghosts tags you, it’s game-over. Another game was the Pac-Man tournament, wherein teams of 3 play the classic Pac-Man arcade machine and the team with the highest score at the end of the night got to bring home the ultimate Outdoor x Pac-Man arcade machine!


What better time for Outdoor to release these retro cool backpacks as Pac-Man is currently celebrating its 35th year anniversary! Once selling camping and military products from various brands, Outdoor began manufacturing “everyday life products” that were simple, strong, and reasonably priced—something everybody was looking for in the 70s. It was Outdoor Products that first created the basic backpack design that everybody is using now. This hugely popular design, as well as the duffle boston bag, has been sold in co-op stores of every university in the United States, and has license agreements with all of the teams in the MLB,NBA, and NFL since the mid-80s.



The Outdoor Products backpack is sturdy and classic—the perfect canvas for other brands to collaborate with. It has worked with Sanrio, Disney, street fashion brand XLARGE among others to create distinct and beautifully designed bags that other people covet. Outdoor Products is redefining itself as not just a durable and classic pack, but a lifestyle brand with quirk and style all its own. Get vintage happy and get it on with Outdoor x Pac-Man packs!



It was truly a night to remember. Not only did we escape the rush hour traffic but we were transported back in time and reminisce and enjoy the simple joys of our childhood. Thank you to Outdoor and Primer for inviting the FlipGeeks Fam. We look forward to your next party!
