Oakley Enduro 25l 2.0 Backpack Features Reviewed

Multiple exterior pockets

Anybody would be elated at the idea of carrying only one bag at a time because everything they need fits, and this bag provides just that. It is ideal for active folks as they can easily separate stinky gym wear and from fresh gear.

The side pockets can fit your water bottles, umbrellas and other miscellaneous items. More so, this feature grants you easy access to your gear without emptying everything just to get to an item at the bottom of the bag.

Each pocket in the Oakley endure backpack is deep enough to comfortably fit your smaller sized gear.

Abrasion Resistant

Polyester is abrasion-resistant and durable. It protects you from chaffing and friction that may happen from long use of this backpack. Polyester is great for preventing chaffing (source).

Backpacks made from polyester are good for resisting water. This means that should it rain out while you’re in the middle of your workout session, you don’t need to worry about your gear getting wet.

Polyester is also common because it resists stretching and stretching. What does that mean to you though? well it means that you can keep it looking fresh and new for much longer.

One other thing that it does well is that polyester holds color really well. This adds to the previous point made about making your backpack look new for much longer.


The padded back panel and shoulder straps make it very easy to wear this particular backpack, especially during long rucking trips. The padding helps to improve weight distribution on your back.

This helps you carry the backpack for much longer without any pain.

Easy To Clean

Thanks to the polyester material used in the construction, it is safe to put your Oakley Enduro 25l 2.0 backpack in the washing machine.

When cleaning, simply empty the bag of any items and follow the instructions for machine washing. Then let it dry.

If your bag isn’t too dirty, you can simply wipe it using a cloth dipped in warm water mixed with a little detergent. 

Final Thoughts

The simplistic design makes it a great choice for someone not looking for anything too flashy. The polyester material is durable which is exactly what you’d want in a backpack.

The Oakley Enduro 25l 2.0 is a multi-use backpack that can be used for pretty much everything from school, to rucking, to even just carrying your groceries back home. It’s spacious enough for you to carry everyday things in it. For the price point, its a great bang for your buck. The only area of improvement we noticed is that the stitching could be better reinforced.
