Eagle Creek Launches New Innovations in Travel Packs for 2011

January 15, 2011

After inventing the travel pack over 35 years ago, Eagle Creek continues to bring travel-specific innovation to the category. 

Eagle Creek, leading maker of travel gear, has introduced new packs to the Deviate Collection, available January 2011.  The packs range from streamline alpinist-style with removable lids, to those with full-size zip-off daypacks, giving travelers' options depending on preference. 

Each backpack has unique forward-thinking travel features like a Zip-Away Suspension for easy check-in and protection when flying, a Central Lock Point to secure bags main entry points with a single lock, Secure Zip™ Toggle Closure to deter roaming hands, and New 3D Air Mesh incorporated into the suspension system for comfort when carrying over longer distances. 

Eagle Creek's Contour Fit Suspension is newly designed with a Custom Glide™ harness to easily adjust the torso length. Also the Women's Contour Fit Suspension specifically sized and hip belt canted for a woman's body is available on the Vita, women's-specific packs. 

Deviate is designed for the traveler at heart, those who live for a sense discovery and new adventures; the core of what the Eagle Creek brand embodies. Color for the new packs was inspired by our personal travels through South America. The sights, sounds, flavors and feel of the laid back Latin culture lent itself to the choices of Night Sky Stratus, Pacific Blue Stratus and Sunset Stratus.
