Eagle Creek Introduces the Patent Pending Morphus™ Convertible Invention And Utility Redefined

July 01, 2013

Reinventing utility and versatility through an ingenious solution.  A bag so cool, we can barely stand it.

 San Diego, Ca. (July 1, 2013) – Morphing from the unexpected to the extraordinary, Eagle Creek has achieved the impossible: Ultra-durable, ultra-versatile, ultra-light: A hybrid polycarbonate upright that morphs into two full-sized travel bags.

Need another bag? Okay! Zip off the front conversion bag, use the “Morphus™ technology” to pull out the full size Bi-Tech™ shell that lives inside and now serves as a second ultra-durable full-size bag. Wheel this new full size option and throw the zip-off on your back. Each bag is fully featured and is seriously like nothing you (or we) have ever seen. 

What? You want more? Okay! The patent pending Morphus isn’t just multiple bags in one, but there’s a different way to carry for each day of the week, multiple dedicated electronics features, interior organization and built-in security.

The Morphus features unique design innovations like an über lightweight 3-ply polycarbonate back combined with a Bi-Tech™ front, in addition to the ingenious new multiple carry options. We counted 6 conventional options, 43 total (somewhat unconventional) options. Once again, Eagle Creek is redefining what customers should expect from adventure travel gear. 

The Morphus features Eagle Creek’s legendary No Matter What™ Warranty.  No matter what happens to your bag (even airline damage), Eagle Creek will repair or replace it.
