Two for the Price of One: Eagle Creek Morphus

I have always been a huge fan of Eagle Creek and about a month ago I reached out to their team to see if I could review some of their luggage. I was planning a family road trip to DC and thought it might be nice to try something other than the super bulky, heavy luggage I’d been toting around since the mid 90’s. The folks at Eagle Creek couldn’t have been nicer and more accommodating. They knew exactly what I was after. They quickly sent me the Morphus 22′ to test out for my trip.

The Eagle Creek Morphus stands out by offering a two bags within one.The innovative construction allows you to zip off the front gear bag from the polycarbonate back shell and use the morphing technology to create a second full-size bag. That’s right – we’re talking TWO carry-on sized travel bags. It’s a game-changer.

After struggling with the instructions a bit, I Macgyvered my way through it and finally separated the bags. Once I figured out how to do it, I kind of felt silly since zipping it apart took a total of about 2 seconds.

Most importantly, I was able to fit a ton of clothing and shoes into the 2 bags. I easily packed 1 weeks worth of clothing for my 2 daughters and myself; I even had room to spare. I NEVER have room to spare so this was a minor miracle in and of itself.

Some of my favorite features include:

  • Multiple carry options include zip-away backpack straps, removable padded shoulder strap, and multiple grab handles. I really like the backpack option. It makes things so much easier when you can free up your hands.
  • Zip-away backpack straps feature load lifter straps and sternum strap with safety whistle. It is even has a bottle opener – I mean how cool is that!
  • Bottom “bathtub” construction resists water if the bag ends up in a puddle.
  • In terms of organization, the gear bag is stacked with pockets like its exterior quick-stash pocket for your itinerary. The lockable main compartment contains a zippered pocket, multiple slip pockets, pen slots, and a key fob with a Porter Key bottle opener (How cool is that!)
  • It also includes two sleeves for your laptop and tablet device if you have both.
  • There are lash points on the side so you can strap this bag to the top of your car.

IMG_2190 (1)I’ve been traveling around the world for the last 40 years and I strongly suggest a soft bag like these. They are lightweight which work really well given weight restrictions. The Morphus also has a solid half which seems to stand up well. The best part is that it fits in the overhead bin when it is not divided.

I can’t wait to take this bag with me to Europe this summer!

This bag does not disappoint, thank you Eagle Creek for another awesome product!

    | Project Eve is a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    article headlines to get people interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    your head prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Cheers!

  17. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always exciting to read through articles from other writers and use something from their websites.

  18. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

  19. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, very good blog!

  20. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite
    justification appeared to be on the web the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries
    that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a
    signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  22. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
