The Hauler represents a truly three-in-one solution to your needs. It is happy having its extensive 110L body stuffed to the gills with sporting equipment, camping gear or all your supplies needed for a global getaway, and being dragged along on its chunky wheels to its destination. Alternatively, it’s a smart shoulder duffel bag, excellent to have waiting by the door to stuff some clothes, some books, a laptop and some bottles for a short notice trip. And for longer treks, the Hauler can assume full backpack mode with its smartly hidden shoulder straps. It is a bag ill-suited to being stationary. The Hauler will challenge you to keep it on the move.
Eagle Creek clearly had a vision in mind when creating their Cargo Hauler, and it was one of hardship and thankless task. Anticipating this life, then, the Hauler has been bestowed with a thick 600 denier polyester as its main fabric, ripstop of course, and featuring a water resistant and easy to clean TPU coating. Don’t be fooled by its toughness, though. With a range of tasteful pastel colours and a glossy finish, the Cargo will easily cut through drearier luggage with its undoubted style. A thicker 1000 denier fabric adorns the padded base, a wise move given this is the area likely to suffer the most abrasion. This same fabric is also given to the wheel end of the bag, which is similarly likely to ensure the most contact with the ground as bag can be stood up on its base.
The main compartment is accessed from a wide “U”-shaped front panel, which opens a full three-quarters of the length of the bag, ensuring even your largest items, from cricket bats to roll-up tents, can be accommodated with ease. The entrance is kept secure by an extra heavy-duty lockable double zip, hidden and protected under storm flap, and which 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. There is a good-sized side compartment at the end of the bag, separated from the main body with a waterproof partition which makes it an excellent vessel for the clothing and electrical you need to keep dry. Again with superb attention to detail, the zip to this compartment features a water resistant strip.
So you’re not sure what your main use for the Cargo Hauler will be? Thankfully, Eagle Creek have ensured the Hauler is a true multi-tasker. As a rolling hauler, its oversized wheels give it a greater clearance, and a tough plastic moulding ensures it will cope with any terrain. As a duffel, it brings a practical reality to the concept of “living out of a suitcase”, serving faithfully as both an impromptu wardrobe and laundry basket while you work out where your next move is. And for those longer trips over hills and dales, the Hauler becomes a fully-fledged backpack once the padded straps are released from their discreet housing. It is a bag equipped to deal with all landscapes and lifestyles.
Keeping your belongings tight and secure inside are four tough compression straps around the main body, and the Hauler is equipped with six further lash points through which bungees can be threaded, excellent for strapping on additional camping equipment or sports gear. When you find yourself settled and have decamped your kit, unlike many other rolling packs the Hauler folds down to around a sixth of its footprint, and be stowed in its convenient carry case.
