Magicians pull rabbits from a hat to impress. Savvy travelers pull out Eagle Creek’s packable daypack. 

At least I feel like a magician each time I arrive at a destination and take out this lightweightpack that transforms from a compact pocket-pouch into a full-size daypack. No matter where I’m going, this handy extra is in my luggage.  


Favorite feature: Perfect for sightseeing or day hikes, it takes up little room in my luggage. Better yet, it weighs only 6.5 ounces and is made from a durable, water-resistant ripstop nylon fabric that stretches easily and resists puncturing.

Not-so-favorite feature: I can’t blame Eagle Creek for this one, but my husband uses this pack so much that I had to buy a second one.  

Bottom line: Packable and convenient with Eagle Creek’s lifetime waranty, this inexpensive pack is as useful at home as it is on the road. 

Note: This backpack, while roomy and lightweight, is not intended to be used for carrying heavy loads.

Part of Eagle Creek’s travel bag series, thepackable daypack is available for purchase at or at The Travel Store at Available in blue and black. Suggested retail price; $27.50. See also, packable tote
