Travel Gear and Luggage
The Eagle Creek backpack started out in 1975 from a small retail shop in California, where Steve and Nona Barker sewed custom packs and has since grown into a global brand.
Eagle Creek prides itself with a long history of making backpacks and accessories specially designed to mobilize every traveler for any trip, whether it is for business, leisure or adventure.
Known for their innovation in adventure travel gear, the company has pioneered many firsts in the market including bags built for far-flung travels with the Exploration System collection.
In recognition of their creative designs, they have received several awards including the Outside Gear of the Year honor, as well as the National Geographic Adventure’s Best of Adventure.
Offering a wide range of choices from everyday packs to adventure travel packs, Eagle Creek backpacks are smart, tough and comfortable for life, work and travel.
Environmental and Social Responsibility
Eagle Creek takes environmental concerns seriously, so they design their products for longevity, use materials that least impact the environment and minimize waste.
From The Conservation Alliance to Friends of the River, the company also partners with many programs to preserve and restore the great outdoors.
