Finally a bag made just for summer camp! I like that it combines the huge volume of a traditional footlocker with the ease of a lightweight wheelie. As a camp waterfront director, I love the waterproof pocket; as a father, I enjoy filling the pocket on the inside cover with family photos. I highly recommend it!

Everything Summer Camp introduces innovative, earth-friendly soft trunk for summer campers.
Everything Summer Camp's new Pop Up Soft Trunk™ is proving to be a huge hit with kids heading off to camp. Everything Summer Camp is a popular outfitter for summer camp kids and parents. For 22 years the company has been making rugged steel camp trunks, now they have added this innovative soft-sided trunk to their line up. Soft trunks are rectangular shaped duffel bags, and are preferred at many summer camps instead of the more traditional hard trunks.
The Pop Up Soft Trunk has been a 2-year project at Everything Summer Camp. In that time the company interviewed dozens of camp directors and campers to find out specifically what they wanted in a camp duffel bag. The Pop Up Soft Trunk™ is made from earth-friendly cotton canvas. Patent pending Wire Frame Technology inside the bag allows the soft trunk to stand up even when it's empty. This makes it easy for campers to stay organized and live out of their soft trunk. Another feature just for summer campers is the lid organizer. The rigid lid of the soft trunk stands up to reveal storage pockets, a mirror, a spot for pictures from home, the camp's packing list, and a hands-free, push-button light. Among the 14 pockets in this bag is a large waterproof pouch that kids can use for wet or sweaty clothes. Smooth rolling wheels and a sturdy handle make the soft trunk easy for kids to transport to camp.
Hundreds of summer camp directors got a sneak peak at the Pop Up Soft Trunk™ this February at the American Camp Association National Conference in Orlando. Camp directors were impressed with how the features of the soft trunk addressed the needs of their campers. Dr. Christopher Thurber is the co-author of "The Summer Camp Handbook," a great resource for camp preparation and homesickness prevention, now available online at SummerCampHandbook.com. Dr. Thurber had this to say about the Pop Up Soft Trunk:
