Do you consider yourslef an adventurous traveler? Then we've got the luggage brand for you! 

Here at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, we travel the world to capture the most beautiful images of the world's most beautiful women. And that often means that planes, trains and automobiles are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our modes of transportation. 

Thankfully the folks at Eagle Creek have created a line of luggage and packing products with this exact kind of travel in mind! "Eagle Creek is an invitation to discover the wonders of humanity and our planet," the brand touts online. "From city parks to exotic destinations, we take pride in equipping you with versatile gear to take you beyond your fears and outside your comfort zone."

So which pieces can we not live without? Let's start with the ORV Trunk. This heavy-duty rolling duffle bag comes in two different heights, 36" and 30", and is the lightweight and efficient piece of lugage you've been looking for. Complete with a seam-taped wet/dry compartment, puncture-resistant zippers, and over-sized treaded wheels, this Bi-Tech Armor bag is made for rough roads and big adventures.

Luckily the Eagle Creek team thought of everything, and they're also here to help simplify the packing process! Because "an organized traveler is a happy traveler," Eagle Creek created the Pack-It collection, a line of cubes and bags to help store clothes, shoes and accessories in a neat and organized manner. We're obsessed with the active line and its products for wet/dry packing — because throwing a wet bikini in your suitcase with your other clothes is never a good idea!
