2-in-1 Ultra-Light Convertible Day Traveler™ Bags

November 01, 2013

Like nothing you’ve seen before in travel gear: Superlight bags that convert from backpack to duffel bag or tote bag to backpack, and so on… And each packs into their own stuff pouch pocket. 

San Diego, Ca. (November 1, 2013) – Eagle Creek proudly introduces their all-new line of 2-in-1 Ultra-Lights, featuring designs that transform not just into larger bags, but with multiple carry options and looks, all with self-storage Pack-in pockets for the ultimate in stow-and-go utility. 

Focusing on innovation, function and durability, Eagle Creek has developed a new concept in day bags with styling options and easy convertibility. With just a zip, snap or clip, the 2-in-1 Ultra-Lights change to a different type of bag with different capacity, or virtually disappear into their own pocket. 

With six distinct styles and three eye-catching colors (plus black), the new 2-in-1 Ultra-Lights are the only ultra light convertible, expandable and packable bags on the market. Although they have a clean, simple look, each bag includes security and functionality features, as well as stain and spill-resistant properties, plus superior abrasion resistant fabric. 

The new Eagle Creek 2-in-1 Ultra Lights are available at retail 11/1/13.
