Two of the world’s preeminent adventure travel brands—National Geographic and Eagle Creek—have teamed up to create exclusive licensed travel gear and accessories for North America.
“Eagle Creek and National Geographic’s combined passion for exploration, conservation and adventure make this partnership a natural fit,” said Roger Spatz, President at Eagle Creek. “Our innovative new products will not only make travel easier, but will hopefully inspire people to get out and explore the world.”
Eagle Creek has developed a line of expedition-worthy travel gear specifically for the National Geographic partnership. Eagle Creek/National Geographic-branded travel bags will be available in stores in May of 2018.
“National Geographic is one of the world’s most trusted brands, especially for premium authentic products for the explorer at heart,” said Rosa Zeegers, Executive Vice President of Consumer Products and Experiences at National Geographic Partners. “Partnering with Eagle Creek on a line of custom-designed bags and packing gear perfect for explorers and adventurers of all kinds was a natural extension of our brand and we’re excited for its debut next year.”
In addition, National Geographic Partners returns 27% of all of their proceeds back to the nonprofit National Geographic Society to support their work. This creates a virtuous cycle of storytelling and philanthropy committed to research, science, conservation and exploration.
