In an age of “How they heck to they do that?!” technology and innovation, Eagle Creek is here to remind us that simple can also be game-changing. Enter the Pack-It™ system —cubes, sacks and folders made of translucent, water-resistant ripstop nylon that weigh less than two ounces and will change the way you pack absolutely any bag you own.

One compartment (see-through), one zipper (bomber!) and the uses are endless. Go ahead, put your electronic accessories in the main section of your bag with your t-shirts. Haul the dirty laundry back home without fear of mix-up. Pack the kids’ gear in with your own. The Pack-It™ system is everything we have come to expect from Eagle Creek and nothing extraneous: versatile, easy access, smart organization and extreme durability.

Pack-It™ comes in two forms, Classic and Specter. The Classic style is a little more structured, allowing for better transference, and Specter is lighter-weight and more flexible, allowing for greater compression. We reviewed the Specter series and enjoyed the newfound flexibility, though can certainly see the value of some rigidity, particularly for holding shape or protecting fragile pieces. Pack-It™ Specter styles are now also available in tangerine for a total of four colors: white/strobe, white/tangerine, strobe green and tangerine.
