Travel Tips and Packing Lists

Find the Perfect Travel Companion in Your Day Bag

Finding the right travel companion isn’t always easy. We want someone who is flexible, versatile, organized and made for adventure. When searching for the perfect everyday travel bag, the list of requirements is quite similar. Other things are important too, like carry preference, size and color. You’ll want a bag that transitions well from days perusing museums and markets to nights out on the town. Traveling with electronics may be a consideration for you. Smart security features are a must. 

At Eagle Creek we know there’s a lot to consider when selecting the perfect everyday bag. Our new Day Travelers™ were designed from our personal experiences on the road, Our newest styles are sleek, smart, errand feature enhanced attention to detail. Offered in a variety of silhouettes from backpacks and couriers to men’s and women’s shoulder bags and messenger bags. All with Smart Travel Security™ organization that includes Secure-Zip™ Toggle closures and padded electronic pockets. Made supremely durable for logging serious mileage. 

How do you choose the right Day Traveler™? Start with these questions: 

  1. Size Matters. Do you carry a load of stuff with you everyday, or are you more of a minimalist?  Your everyday preferences are probably very similar to your daily preferences when traveling. Instead of trying to change your style, find a travel bag that’s a similar size to your everyday bag. 
  2. Traveling with a laptop, tablet or netbook? If so, bring a laptop bag. If you’re concerned with getting through security quickly, stick with a Checkpoint Friendly design.
  3. Is versatility important? Try a travel bag with multiple carry options.  The Eagle Creek Dane Brief converts from a messenger bag to a backpack. The Emerson Carry All and Kensley both have a cross-body and shoulder strap for versatility. 
  4. If traveling in unpredictable weather, try a weather-resistant bag from our Flashpoint Series. Same great designs now in weather-resistant fabrications.
