History of Eagle Creek

Eagle Creek was born in 1975 in the San Jacinto Mountains of California where Steve and Nona Barker ran a retail store called Mountain People and sewed custom mountain packs. That year, they decided to turn their energy full-time to pack manufacturing. The name Eagle Creek was chosen and production began in a 1500 square foot warehouse in Solana Beach, California. In 1979, Ricky Schlesinger joined the duo; he would go on to lead the brand’s sales and marketing efforts helping grow the brand into what it is today.

Since the beginning, innovation, durability and craftsmanship have been an integral part of the brand’s DNA. Eagle Creek was first to market with the concept of the “adventure travel gear” category and the first to offer a backpack designed specifically for travel. The brand was first to utilize double needle seam stitching for increased durability and was first with a built-in organization panel in a backpack.

In 1996, Eagle Creek introduced the Pack-It™ System, a series of Folders, Cubes and Sacs made to organize travelers worldwide by changing the way people pack. To this day Eagle Creek is still the leading brand in packing organization. This same year, the brand launched the original Switchback™, the first-ever convertible backpack on wheels. Since the very beginning, Eagle Creek has been a brand of many firsts, always staying innovative and creating products that change the way people travel.

Throughout its history, Eagle Creek has been committed to providing travelers with a complete travel system, from a main bag to packing and organization solutions, to security, comfort and everyday essentials while on the road. Today, Eagle Creek is the only brand that provides a complete Travel System of products to outfit for any trip and every traveler. The brand continues to lead the market with innovation in adventure travel gear, luggage and packing solutions for active, adventurous souls.
