Staring down challenges facing both retailer and consumer, Eagle Creek steps up their commitment to innovation. When Eagle Creek set out to design the new patent pending EC Lync™ System, they not only created one of the most unique designs on the market, but they took special care to consider the revenue productivity of the retail environment.

“We realize that luggage takes up a lot of space on the retail floor and we wanted to help our retailers achieve higher productivity per square foot, and, ultimately, make more money,” said Tim McGuire, Sr. National Sales Manager at Eagle Creek.

By creating full size convertible luggage that breaks down into a stuff bag smaller than half the original size, the team was able to simultaneously reduce the overall retail footprint.

The EC Lync™ System fixture utilizes four times less retail floor space than a traditional luggage display and allows retailers to fit 125% more inventory into a much smaller space, create a visually interesting display in an otherwise standard environment and increase revenue potential. Designed to fully leverage the display space from top to bottom as well as within the footprint, the fixture tells the EC Lync story in a manner that catches and holds the attention of the consumer.

The product itself is like nothing else on the market. Brightly colored and built Eagle Creek strong for customer satisfaction and brand loyalty, the EC Lync™ System breaks down like a tent for easy storage, and also converts from a wheeled travel bag to an ultra light backpack for the ultimate in utility.
