In the beginning, Eagle Creek made no-nonsense duffel bags and backpacks that could survive your far-flung adventures.
Its new No Matter What Flatbed Duffel has all the space and toughness of its predecessors, plus rugged tractor-like wheels, a sturdy handle pull system and an open rectangular build that makes efficient use of its space.
Flat on its back, the duffel unzips in a U shape for fullest access to contents. Two large zippered mesh compartments on the internal side of the “door” provide quick access to what you need.
The bag is available as a 20- or 22-inch wheel-aboard, or a 28- or 32-inch behemoth, each in black, bright blue or red.
The 20-inch duffel costs $175; 22-inch, $180; 28-inch, $200; and 32-inch, $220.
