Eagle Creek Introduces Innovation in Fabric and Fabrication Technologies New Outdoor Gear Bags and Luggage For Spring '16

Ramping up the technology with innovative new construction techniques, and lighter weight, more durable materials to enhance any adventure

San Diego, Ca. (September 14, 2015) – Hitting the nitrous on an already speeding train of success, Eagle Creek proudly introduces a newly redesigned Outdoor Gear line of luggage, pioneering composite fabrication technology in the luggage industry. Seamless construction methods not only reduce weight, it also increases strength and adds a new level of cool, with a rugged yet clean look. Designed for gear junkies and outdoor enthusiasts, the new Outdoor Gear bags and backpacks are built for whatever adventure you’re on.

The Superhero of luggage, the new Outdoor Gear is lighter and tougher than ever. Eagle Creek removed anything unnecessary and engineered a new Geo Ripstop fabric for the Spring ’16 line. The new Geo Ripstop has a pattern reminiscent of geodesic domes, deriving strength from the weave pattern without adding weight. 

Built Eagle Creek tough, the new, proprietary, seamless glue-laminated Exo-Skeleton composite fabrication creates an inspired aesthetic, vastly increases abrasion resistance, and maximizes durability at critical wear points. New wheel housings and molded kick plates add strength for get-out-of-my-way outdoor readiness. 

The new Gear Warriors and Load Warriors are packed with innovative travel features, designed to enhance the travel experience, including the popular stowable Equipment Keeper™, laundry chute, add-a-bag strap, durable wheels, organization pockets, interior and exterior compression straps, Porter Key™ bottle opener attachment and redesigned wheels that can handle the toughest abuse. 

All new Outdoor Gear styles are covered by Eagle Creek’s legendary No Matter What Warranty.

Colors: Black, Smoky Blue, Tan/Olive

The new Outdoor Gear styles will be available at retail 1/1/16.
