EAGLE CREEK SYSTEMS GO DUFFEL PACK 60L

Special to The Miami Herald

Eagle Creek’s newest travel bag has all the advantages of big, roomy unstructured duffel and all the hands-free portability of a well-designed backpack. That’s because the Systems Go Duffel Pack 60L is both. Used as a backpack, the lightweight (about 2.5 pounds), water-resistant bag benefits from a fully padded back panel and adjustable padded back strap, sternum strap, and hip belt. Or, presto change-o, tuck away the hip belt, detach the back straps and re-combine them to create a single cross-body duffel strap.

Multiple zippered access points let you load from the front or the top, and there’s a lockable zippered bottom compartment with an internal zippered divider to create two packing spaces. A zippered side compartment and internal computer sleeve aid organizing. Front, bottom and side compression straps minimize bulk, and multiple handles make the bag easy to grab and haul from different angles.

For ultimate organizing, the Systems Go Duffel Pack 60L (3650 cubic inches capacity) is sized to stack five Eagle Creek Pack-It cubes (sold separately).

Eagle Creek Systems Go Duffel Pack 60L in red or black is $160; Pack-It cubes, in several models, start at $12.50, at www.eaglecreek.com.
