We are a tribe of travelers. Eagle Creek was born in the San Jacinto Mountains of California where Steve and Nona Barker ran a retail store called Mountain People. In 1975, they put their energy full-time into pack manufacturing. Today, we’re a company focused on outfitting the traveler to help make their experience better and the discoveries greater.
Eagle Creek was born in the San Jacinto Mountains of California where Steve and Nona Barker ran a retail store called Mountain People. In 1975, they decided to put their energy full-time into pack manufacturing and began with a 1500 square foot warehouse in Solana Beach, California.
Since the beginning, innovation, durability and craftsmanship have been an integral part of the brand's DNA. Today, Eagle Creek offers a full spectrum of travel solutions and can outfit any traveler for any adventure with our 4-step Travel System.
We take pride in crafting durable and intelligent travel bags; smart solutions that deliver delight and discovery as benefits are revealed through each leg of your trip. Every buckle, zipper, webbing and fabric choice is scrutinized based on rigorous lab testing. Then we take our products on the road to make sure that when you travel, Eagle Creek will have your back. The places we visit motivate our aesthetic, infusing our products with the experiences and sensibilities of travel. Our travel system was made by travelers, for travelers.
We are keenly aware of the environmental impact of everything we produce. We strive to minimize material waste, and source and manufacture with the least environmentally impactful fabrics, trims and packaging materials. As many of our customers tell us, they have been carrying their Eagle Creek gear for years and have been amazed with the longevity of our products. To that end, we strive to make stuff that lasts a lifetime which means Eagle Creek products inevitably stay out of the landfill that much longer.
