The Bi-Tech™ Brilliance of the Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler

Looking for a heavy-duty adventure travel bag that also happens to be lightweight? Here’s everything you need to know about Eagle Creek’s Cargo Hauler with Bi-Tech™ Armor Lite Fabric!

When it comes to picking a gear bag for a weekend trip or the long haul, adventure travelers can find themselves debating between a heavy pack that boasts impressive durability, and a lightweight pack that’s easy to carry along the journey — but not quite built for the elements. For travelers who have had enough of sacrificing one important quality for another, Eagle Creek’s Cargo Hauler Duffel is a brand new, lightweight option built to withstand everything you may put it in — and everything that may fall on — it.

Beyond being both lightweight and durable, this best-of-both-worlds adventure travel bag is built for organization, comes with features hardcore travelers love, and has a sleek, modern design. Learn more about the Bi-Tech™ Armor Lite brilliance, organizational features, and built-in storage of this truly incredible bag.

The Wonder of Bi-Tech™ Armor Lite

Let’s really break this down: How light, exactly, is light? For the Cargo Hauler, light is a 1-pound, 8-ounce 45L bag; a 1-pound, 12-ounce, 60L bag; 2-pound, 2-ounce, 90L bag; and a 2-pound, 7-ounce, 120L bag! High-tech travel technology adds serious durability to the ultra lightweight bags. The Cargo Haulers feature Bi-Tech™ Armor Lite fabric that is strong, abrasion resistant, and waterproof, and is protected by a proprietary coating that allows the fabric to be thinner while maintaining its durability. This fabric coating is non-petroleum based, which means it’s more environmentally friendly than other duffels on the market. Bartack reinforcement stitching on all high stress points increases the strength even more, without adding any unneeded weight.

Handy Features

While the Bi-Tech™ Armor Lite may be the newest innovation in the Cargo Hauler, this line retains some classic favorite features and gadgets from top to bottom. Each bag is reflective for dusk and nighttime visibility, and has #10 lockable, self-repairing zippers. This convertible duffel has removable padded backpack straps, padded side handles for easy grabbing from truck beds or shuttles, and a top handle. Attach this bag to your car’s roof rack using the six heavy-duty lash points, and use the easy-to-grip zipper pulls. The bag’s padded bottom absorbs shock, giving your gear one extra layer of protection.

Organizational Wonder

The Cargo Hauler is built for organization, whether you’re packing, stacking, or storing.  Zippered end pockets provide multiple options for gear storage, while the u-shaped lid — which is protected by a weather-resistant storm flap — gives you easy access to the main compartment (which makes stacking your tube cubes and cubes even easier). Speaking of stacking, the rectangular shape of the Cargo Hauler bags makes them perfectly stackable for more organized car packing.

Simple Design and Convenient Size Options

Even the most rugged traveler can appreciate the Cargo Hauler’s sleek, contemporary design. The bag comes in five color options — black, orange, fern, blue, and cherry — complemented with a gray contrast. And whatever your adventure may entail, there’s a size option for you, ranging from carry-on friendly Small (45L) and Medium (60L), to the fits-it-all Large (90L) and XL (120L).

No Matter What™ Warranty

There’s one more feature this duffel includes: Peace of mind. Each Cargo Hauler comes with Eagle Creek’s No Matter What™ Warranty, which covers the lifetime warranty, along with replacements due to any product failure. So if a rhino uses it as a play toy, contact Eagle Creek’s warranty team and they will repair or replace the bag for free. This is a bag you are going to love for a very long time!

Once you’ve picked a size and color combination that works for you, don’t forget to add some organizers from the Pack-It™ System to maximize the potential of this great duffel!
