Known for innovation, quality construction and durability, Eagle Creek travel gear is proud to receive a Best New Gear Award from The Gear Institute for their 2-in-1 Ultra Light Backpack / Duffel from their new line of convertible Day Travelers™. The honor, bestowed at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market ‘13 shows that quality and multi-functionality can come in ultra light packages.

When asked about the features that drew The Gear Institute’s eye, editor and co-founder Justin Nyberg said, “It's just a really smart pack. It compresses into a little pouch you can pack away. It unpacks into a legit, ultralight daypack. It converts to a duffle. It's expandable for larger loads. It has locking zippers for airport protection. You don't see a lot of daypacks with that level of design thinking. It's very light, and it's quite inexpensive. You can't ask for much more out of a travel bag.” 

“We are really honored to be presented with the Best New Gear Award from The Gear Institute,” 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.”

The Gear Institute’s Best New Gear Awards are awarded to the most innovative products for the next year’s retail season.
