Eagle Creek Introduces New Exploration Series Bags and Luggage For Spring ‘17

The pinnacle of outdoor travel design gets in gear

San Diego, Ca. (June 9, 2016) – Eagle Creek’s Exploration Series – the baddest-ass luggage on the planet – perfectly embodies Eagle Creek’s brand values: Durability, Organization, and Versatility. Vitally updated for Spring 2017, the Exploration Series line represents the latest materials, technology and modern styling.

Making the best even better is an enviable challenge. And it’s one that Eagle Creek designers passionately dove into. Seeking out the latest materials, research, customer feedback, and new design and color trends, they have delivered an exceptional redesign of the top position of the Exploration Series line. Exploration Series luggage does not just transport gear, it actually enhances the travel experience and tackles any adventure with gusto.

New Exploration Series Tarmacs, ORV Trunks, Switchback, Gear Hauler and backpacks boast of increased durability and lighter weight carry – something only possible through the engineering of new materials. The bags also feature even more security and personal safety features. Purpose-driven additions include puncture-resistant #10 zippers with a Central Lock Point, separate pockets for separate functions, daisy chain webbing for gear attachment, plus new internal organization options built into the carry-on luggage, which includes laptop storage, tablet sleeves and organization for small electronics. Updated features include the tried-and-loved Equipment Keeper™, Porter Key™ bottle opener, and Add-A-Bag strap for wrangling multiple pieces of wheeled luggage with just one hand.

Eagle Creek’s legendary durability story is further bolstered with the addition of reinforced corner bumpers and Bi Tech™ Armor panels. A new Bi-Tech™ heathered fabric reduces weight, increases abrasion resistance and adds visual depth.

All Exploration Series styles are covered by Eagle Creek’s legendary No Matter What™ Warranty.

Colors: Asphalt Black, Highland Green, Stone Grey, Slate Blue

The new Exploration Series styles will be available at select retailers 10/1/16.
