The Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler 60L is a lightweight and durable duffel that packs down into it's front-end zippered compartment for compact storage. Manufactured from 100% recycled materials, this funky limited edition Smog of the Sea print will also help to bring awareness to the ongoing global health crisis of plastic pollution.
Eagle Creek says:
Our mid-sized Cargo Hauler is the perfect go-to 60L duffel with plenty of space for all your gear. Where size and convenience meet, with an internal divider to help keep your internal items separated, but organized. Keep your clean items away from the dirty, or put clothes on one side and shoes on the other. It’s lightweight and versatile, with grab handles and three easy ways to carry.
INTRODUCING 5 GYRES
The 5 Gyres Institute is dedicated to empowering action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, education and adventure. The accumulation zones of plastics in the oceans, called gyres, are a result of the vortex of winds and currents occurring at latitude synonymous with continental deserts. Plastic is trapped within these currents, taking at least 10 years to cycle back out – if it doesn’t get consumed by marine life or sink to the bottom resulting in trillions of microplastic particles filing up our oceans.
A beautiful print inspired by a huge problem
The Smog of the Sea print is inspired by the billions of microplastics that currently circulate in our ocean. Plastic does not degrade; it just breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces, hence these specs of color decorating the collection. 5 Gyres is bringing awareness and looking for solutions to the ongoing microplastic crisis. This print is designed to not only be a reminder of what your plastic bottles, cups or straws could one day be, but to inspire us all to eliminate single use plastic.
What I really like about Eagle Creek's Cargo Hauler Duffel is that it packs down small when empty and stuffs into its own side pocket, creating a handy carry case that you can't loose. Bags that stuff into their own pockets can sometimes be a challenge to get back inside due to stiff fabrics, but this one didn't take much effort at all.
You've also got multiple carrying options - it can be worn as a rucksack or you can remove the straps and just use the top or side padded grab handles. In terms of storage there's one main compartment, big enough for clothes and accessories, and two large side pockets which is large enough for shoes and toiletries.
The duffel is made from tough, 100% Recycled 600D and 1000D Poly material. The pattern is pretty funky too as it's inspired by the billions of microplastics that currently circulate in our ocean. Eagle Creek has partnered with 5 Gyres, an organisation empowering action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, education, and adventure. 10% of proceeds from this item and any other products from this limited collection will support 5 Gyres' efforts to combat the growing plastic epidemic in our oceans and shorelines.
So let's help to be part of the solution and not the problem - sounds a little cheezy I know but here at UOG we really do care.
