Eagle Creek Introduces new 2-in-1 Packable Bags

Backpack_DuffelEagle Creek is introducing a new line of five packable 2-in-1 bags that convert from one type of bag to another. They are available starting today.

Rather than write everything you’d want to know about each item, next to each photo I’ll include the link taking you to that product’s webpage. There you can learn everything you need to know about them as well as see additional photos of each item.

2-in-1 Waaistpack Shoulder BagThe 2-in-1 Waistpack/Shoulder Bag ($40)









2-in-1 PouchEach item folds down into its own pouch making it easy to pack in a carry-on bag.

When converting from one type of bag to the other, they also expand in size.

The bags are very lightweight and range from 5.5 oz/155g to 14.5 oz/411g.





The uniqueness of these bags is that they can perform double duty–a concept we one bag travelers embrace.

I’ve been told that a 2-in-1 Tote/Backpack is on its way to me for review.  At that time, I’ll not only discuss that particular bag but the entire line as well.

    I have been looking at these and will be interested in your opinion. I almost bought the Patagonia lightweight tote, but ended up with a Travelon knock off. It is OK, but very flimsy and unstructured. If anyone gets the sling bag, I would like to know if the strap can be adjusted long enough to wear crossbody.

    My favorite day bags are large crossbody bags for museums, restaurants, etc. but with the option of using as backpacks for long walks. My all time favorite is an old Eagle Creek Matrix Boron, but it doesn’t convert to a backpack. I have been using an even older LL Bean small vertical messenger bag (with an Op Tech strap) that converts to a backpack.

    Love Eagle Creek bags and this idea, but like Akros, I would like to know about it’s stability when packed. I am especially interested in the duffle-backpack combo. Can’t wait for the review!

    Good to see Eagle Creek in this particular marketplace. When you do your review or first impressions, please check out the Patagonia Lightweight series at the same time, the specs overlap or duplicate Eagle Creek’s new products in many instances.
