Gear: Eagle Creek's Flatbed Duffel is one tough customer

Eagle Creek's No Matter What Flatbed Duffel is sturdy but room enough for lots of stuff.

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.
