Perfect for packing into your travel bag, these lightweight backpacks fold down neatly into their own zipped pack pocket. Mesh shoulder straps provide breathability and the 70 denier ripstop fabric makes the backpacks robust and durable.
Available in a 16 litre or 25 litre option. Both sizes have a main compartment with two-way zip, two zipped pockets (one internal and one external) and a top grab handle. The smaller size has a stretch mesh side pocket whilst the larger version has two side pockets as well as two front stash pockets.

I've had one of these bags for over 6 or 7 years and it's still in regular use as a day pack or carry-on when flying. It folds down to the size of a paperback which is great for packing. Although light, the nylon fabric has proved durable with no rips or tears, despite having been stuffed with shopping, weighed down with souvenirs or filled with damp beachwear and shells. It obviously has no solid frame, but the larger version has useful side straps which compress the bag and keep things upright when carrying a light load – no pictures of the larger bag here so I can't confirm if the 2018 version still has these. I'm buying another so I hope it has! Versatile, light and easy to pack – very useful bag.
