Eagle Creek Introduces The No Matter What™ Flatbed Duffel – All-New Style And New Colors For Spring ’15

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.


The industry standard for dependable, durable duffels, now featuring a new style and new colors for eye catching style appropriate for all situations.

Eagle Creek has listened to the requests of their customers and retailers and accomplished the impossible: Making everyone happy. Adding bold, eye-catching new colors to the original, and undisputed, king of adventure duffels: the No Matter What™ Duffel. Eagle Creek also added a new style with wheels and a handle system that’s burly enough to handle any truck bed, trunk or cargo hold: the new No Matter What™ Flatbed Duffel.

Mixing the need for lightweight, durable gear with the need for wheels, at a price under $200 and a little Eagle Creek magic, the result is the new, durable and endlessly useful No Matter What™ Flatbed Duffel.

Featuring the ultra-durable waterproof Bi-Tech™ fabric for extreme weather and abrasion resistance, the new Flatbed Duffel has a rectangular shape with a structured back, sturdy handle system and monster truck-worthy wheels you can’t get in a regular duffel, plus a few extras, like an interior zippered mesh pocket and exterior quick-grab pocket. Stuff as much as you want to pack into a No Matter What Flatbed Duffel, and you know you can depend on its durability and weather resistance, no matter how many baggage handlers or puddles stand between you and your destination.

Standing firm as the leader of the duffel pack, the classic No Matter What Duffels are being infused with new, bright colors, creating eye-catching appeal. Available in all Standard No Matter What™ Duffels, the four bright tonal colorways look as great in a retail setting as on the baggage carousel.

Eagle Creek’s No Matter What™ Duffels pack down and fold into their handy storage/carrying bag when they’re not in use, saving valuable closet space or keeping your gear closet organized – again, great for both consumer and retailer. Customers appreciate the durable hardware, seam reinforcement, hyper-flexible buckles and metal welded D-rings that don’t let you down.

Eagle Creek stands behind their No Matter What™ Warranty. No matter what happens to your bag (even airline damage), Eagle Creek will repair or replace it.
The new Eagle Creek No Matter What™ Flatbed Duffels will be available 1/1/15.

The new colors of No Matter What™ Duffels and Rolling Duffels will be available 10/1/14.
