Last month we reported the news that beloved travel gear brand Eagle Creek was being shuttered by parent company VF Corporation at the end of the year. For years, Eagle Creek has made some of the best duffels, travel cases, and backpacks in the business. Buying a piece of luggage from Eagle Creek very likely meant many years of happy service. What I’d like folks in the industry to know is that Eagle Creek is a great and viable brand. The couple feels strongly that there’s room for a brand that focuses on travel, outdoor rec, and conservation, pillars of Eagle Creek.
