The most compact in their hugely popular Cargo Duffel range, this 40L model is perfect for those quick getaways, city breaks, or if you’re looking for a versatile companion that can turn its hand to commuting, lugging sports kit or organising family days out. Though diminutive, the Hauler 40 inherits Eagle Creek’s long heritage in travel equipment. They have employed their intimate understanding of the practical realities of fast-paced travel to create this great all-rounder, which represents a 3-in-1 solution. As a basic cargo hauler, it’s a safe repository for all those travelling essentials, and conforming to EU carry-on size you’ll find it receives access-all-areas treatment when city-hopping. Alternatively, it’s a stylish shoulder duffel bag, perfectly at home swinging on your bed post waiting for your work, play and travel kit. And for longer treks, the Hauler assumes full backpack mode with its otherwise hidden shoulder straps blossoming into thickly padded harnesses, attaching with D-rings to the main body.

Eagle Creek have bestowed upon the Cargo Hauler all the tools to ensure a life on the move, knowing the trust and faith in which travellers place in their kit. Breakdowns are not acceptable. Accordingly, the Hauler has been designed with a thick 600 denier polyester as its main fabric, ripstop of course, and featuring a water resistant and easy to clean TPU coating. Appearances are indeed deceptive, and whilst the Hauler has been built to be tough and uncomplaining, it manages to cut an elegant stride, with a range of tasteful pastel colours and a glossy finish further setting it apart from its rivals. A thicker 1000 denier fabric shields the padded base, appropriately so given this area is likely to be subject to the most abrasion.

Opening almost the full length of the bag, the large “U”-shaped front panel gives access to the main compartment, opening widely to ensure there’s no tight squeezing involved in getting your gear into the bag. Anticipating the need for security, the front panel is kept tight by an extra heavy-duty double zip, which is hidden and protected under a storm flap ensuring your kit is kept dry. The zip can be further secured using Eagle Creek’s Central Locking Point. This unique feature allows the zips to be locked into an alloy eyelet stitched into the bag’s main body, rendering the zip virtually tamper-proof. A waterproof compartment is provided on the front panel itself, also used to keep the backpack straps hidden when not in use, and a side compartment is provided at one end of the bag.

Once your belongings are inside the Hauler, four strong compression straps around the body help to keep everything tight and steady. When using the bag as a basic hauler, there are four tough grab handles on all sides, enabling you to grab and carry it from all angles. Once you’re in your hotel and have decamped. The hauler folds down to around a sixth of its footprint, and as there is no wire frame it can be rolled up into its integrated carrying pouch.

Travelling is increasingly being undertaken with as much concern for the environment as with choice of airline or hotel room type. Eagle Creek fully recognise their obligation to ensure their products are enjoyed with as little environmental impact as possible. Their industry leading Bluedesign initiative ensures this commitment runs all the way through the lifecycle of their products, from manufacture to repair and refurbishment. All supply chains are chosen and audited to ensure they prioritise ecological concern and worker welfare. Already at 99% PVC-free levels, Eagle Creek aim to be at 100% by 2020. Their recycling credentials even extend to using the millions of discarded windscreens in the waterproofing of their fabrics. Take comfort, too, in knowing that on the rare occasion of the bag becoming damaged, it is covered by Eagle Creek’s “No Matter What” guarantee, which pledges to repair any bag, regardless of the age.

The world is narrowing, but although it may no longer take eighty days to traverse everyone still needs a faithful Passepartout. Discover your inner Fileas Fogg with this lovely Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler 40.
