Eagle Creek Wins Coveted Men’s Journal Gear Of The Year Award: New Patent Pending EC Lync™ System Impresses
San Diego, Ca. (December 10, 2014) – Known for innovation, quality construction and durability, Eagle Creek travel gear is proud to receive a Gear of the Year Award from Men’s Journal for the new EC Lync™ System convertible, packable luggage. The honor, bestowed in the December issue shows that cool ideas, quality and multi-functionality can come in ultra light packages.
When asked about the features that drew Men’s Journal interest, contributor and gear aficionado Michael Frank said, “It's just a really smart bag. It converts to a superlight backpack, but also packs down into a small pouch you can easily store away. You don't see a lot of luggage with that level of design thinking. It's very light, and you can't ask for much more out of a suitcase.”
“We are really honored to be presented with the Gear of the Year Award from Men’s Journal,” said Roger Spatz, President, Eagle Creek. “Innovation is always at the forefront for our product design and brand, and this recognition is a fantastic validation of the work we’ve done and motivator for the work we’re going to do.”
Men’s Journal Gear of the Year Issue is on stands now.
