Eagle Creek Travel Expert, Jessica Dodson, walks you through how to pack your travel pack in this new packing video. She even tackles the age-old question of what makes a travel pack different from a hiking pack!


Packing for a 3-week long trip to Croatia, Jessica needed a bag that could take her (and all her stuff) across the Atlantic and from Zagreb to Dubrovnik.

In order to stay hands free and mobile, she chose to sport a travel pack. Here are a few quick things to consider when packing your travel pack.

  • Weight - You're going to be carrying this on your back, so leave unnecessary (or heavy) items at home. And pack neutrals to keep clothing items to a minimum.
  • Organization - Use different color packing organizers so you can quickly identify where your stuff is.
  • Be Prepared – A Rain Fly will come in handy, it’s just a matter of when.

Often times technical packs are lighter in weight. However, with a travel pack you get lockable zippers, reflectivity, and the advantageous characteristics of luggage.
