This new wheeled suitcase sports a scratch-resistant nylon surface and is lined with sateen. The travel piece includes a removable garment bag and an 18" plastic folding board and encasement that keeps pants and shirts freshly pressed. Eagle Creek started as a backpack manufacturing business in 1975. Five years later, Eagle Creek's founders, Steve and Nona Barker, developed soft luggage that could both be wheeled or worn as a backpack by adventure travelers. The Vista, Calif., company sells its products in 250 U.S. specialty luggage shops and in 30 countries worldwide.
