Trail running can sometimes result in dusty shoes. (yes I bet you thought I was going to say muddy, but we don’t have rain in LA ) After a run, having a place to store those dirty shoes is key. Once I discovered Eagle Creek Pack It Sport set, let’s just say I found the key to my clean car success.
The Pack It Sport set is a 2 piece set of storage for your gym bag, suitcase or even the trunk of your car. The set consists of a zip “locker” for your shoes and another small bag big enough for a set of running clothes. The beauty of the compact size is that it fits easily into a gym bag.
What makes this product stand out? First off, the material is flexible, yet pretty durable, and comes in a variety of colors. I got the black color, but the bright colors are a fun option too. The shoe locker zips and has plenty of room for most sizes of shoes, plus dirty socks. The small bag has two pouches but doesn’t hold much more than a top and bottom. (squeezing a jacket in there too, might be a bit tight). Secondly, it is washable and sink proof. Yes, the material has special antimicrobial treatment which prevents odors from lingering. Thirdly, there is a lifetime warranty.
I tested the items out for a few different workout options. I used it to pack clean workout gear for an afterwork yoga session. I loved the fact that the compartments fit nicely into my work bag, and prevented me from bringing another bag on my work commute. I also tried it for my sweaty clothes post trail run. This was my favorite option. After my run, I could easily store my messy shoes without getting the car dirty. I even started storing my trail shoes in the bag, to keep my closet floors fresh.
Eagle creek has a full line of gear, prefect for outdoor use, or even traveling. Based on my experience of the quality of the fabrications I will definitely check them out when I shop for a new back pack or other travel gear. Another fun fact…they are located in Southern California, and shopping local is a big plus for me.
Overall I really like this product. While I wish the small tote was a little bigger, the shoe locker was outstanding.
