Product Spotlight: The Expanse™ Collection for Solo Travel

Built for exploring, the new Expanse™ Collection of bags is versatile enough to handle any type of adventure. They have been designed the meet the needs of young travelers who want affordable bags that protect their stuff (especially electronics) in transit, help keep them organized, and will last a long time.

If you’ve got a taste for adventure, you’ll want a bag that allows you to be free to follow your dreams. The Expanse™ UprightConvertible, and Hauler were created with that in mind. They won’t break the bank, either—leaving you with more money to spend on your trip.

Be Resilient

When your adventures are rugged, you want your bag to be, too. The Expanse™ Collection features heavy-duty, treaded wheels that are capable of maneuvering over all types of terrain. The scuff-resistant, armor-print fabric keeps your bag looking new by hiding any marks or stains. These solid bags are extremely durable and won’t show wear and tear after multiple trips.

Be Flexible

Convertible bags offer tremendous versatility. You can roll them, wear them (freeing up your hands so you can use your phone), and even expand them, depending on your needs. No room in the trunk? No problem. You can strap your bag to the roof of the car using the bag's external lash points. Plus, the internal compression straps allow you to pack more inside the bag. And the multi-grab handles on the exterior make it easy to grab-and-go.

Be Tech-Savvy

If you've grown up in the digital age, odds are that you're interested in constantly sharing and communicating with friends while you're out exploring. After all, what good is climbing a mountain if you can't Instagram your celebration at its peak? Staying connected means carrying your electronics with you at all times. Details like padded tablet sleeves in the Expanse Uprights™ and multiple mesh pockets for small devices make that much easier.

Be Organized

Forget having to empty out your suitcase every time you need to find something. Who has time for that? Grab a bag that puts everything that you need at your fingertips. The Expanse™ bags have places to store your clothes, maps, water bottles, chargers, keys, and ID. These well-organized bags give you quick access to the things that you use most.

Be Safe

The last thing that you want to worry about while you are on the road is having your stuff stolen. All of the bags in the Expanse™ collection feature #10 lockable zippers in the main compartments. Additionally, they have a Central Lock Point on the outside of the bag for added pickpocket protection. Reflective accents on the front of the bag also provide nighttime visibility.

Be Covered

The Expanse™ Collection is covered by Eagle Creek’s No Matter What™ Warranty. This means that your bag has the company's Lifetime Warranty promise, plus the added insurance of repair or replacement due to product failure during the product's lifetime, regardless of the cause.
