ACK Fan and Customer, Bill Halwick on his 43rd Consecutive Full Moon Paddle.

Full Moon paddle sessions are lesser known excursions for those interested in taking their kayak experience to the next level. Historically, doing much of anything under the glow of a full moon has had mystic connotations associated to it. As a whole, kayakers and SUP boarders get a kick out of the adventure for their own personal purposes, and not to intentionally awaken any undead lake monster on a night that would appear to be ideal for those kind of bewitching endeavors. For convenience purposes, these events typically occur on warmer nights when the water can be guaranteed a certain temperature above freezing. But in a lot of cases people go solo on these trips in efforts to experience a sense of solitude and connectedness with their natural setting, sometimes even in the heart of winter.

Pack-It, The Revolutionary Way to Pack Your Luggage

by the Eagle Creek team

“How do I pack it all?”

packing-solutions-cubesThis is the challenge that nearly every type of traveler faces, whether planning for a quick overnight trip or an extended getaway. You’ve got clothes, toiletries, laptops, phones, digital cameras, itineraries, jackets, guide books and so much more.

So, how do you manage to fit it all into your bags before you depart?

Well, you can cram it all in, like most people do, but this will ultimately make your travel a lot more cumbersome than it needs to be.

  • Stuffing your bags to the brim will wrinkle your clothes, crush important documents and potentially damage your electronics too.
  • Not only that, you’ll be stuck with a giant, disorganized mess, making it difficult to find what you need upon arrival, and slowing you down at the worst possible time.

There’s a better way to pack and avoid these headaches – with the revolutionary Pack-It System from Eagle Creek.

What is the Eagle Creek Pack-It System?

Our Pack-It™ System is changing the way people travel and has been since.

It’s a simple system that eliminates several of the most common packing challenges, from organizational issues to limited packing space. With smartly designed packs, cubes and folders that divide your stuff into cleanly arranged sections within your larger luggage bags, the system makes it easier for you to find what you need, when you need it, and eliminate the clutter.

If you travel often, then you know that a little bit of organization goes a long way. Losing any item – whether it’s a favorite t-shirt or your passport – can cause an undue amount of stress during your travels. Did you leave it at home? Did it fall out of your bag? Did someone steal it?

Our packing system helps relieve these worries by organizing clean clothes and dirty laundry while making the most of your packing space, so you can put more in your bags.

Beyond solving the organizational and packing challenges, the system also addresses a number of other common packing issues, including:

  • Protecting your gear from moisture
  • Controlling odor
  • Keeping your clothes from getting wrinkled

Let’s take a look at some examples of optional system components and how they can make your life a lot easier when you’re traveling.
