eBags is an online retailer of handbags, luggage, backpacks, laptop bags, and travel accessories that was founded in Greenwood Village, Colorado near Denver. The pure-play e-retailer was recognized by traditional retailers as a survivor of the dot-com crash in addition to the September 11 terrorist attacks which dramatically slowed travel product sales in 2001.[1] 

Before being acquired for $105 million by Samsonite in 2017,[2] the main website,, carried bags and accessories from more than 650 brands. eBags also operated the eBags Corporate Sales site and offered its own private label products under the name The eBags Brand.[3]

During 2020, eBags stopped selling brands not owned by Samsonite. As of September 2020, retailed products from 5 brands: eBags private label brand, Samsonite, American Tourister, Hartmann, and High Sierra.[4]
