What is a Packable Daypack?
A packable daypack is an ultralight backpack that can fit in your luggage (or even your pocket).
They usually compress into a small pouch.
They come in a range of sizes, some tiny and ultralight with one compartment, others bulkier
with many of the pockets and features you’d expect in a regular backpack. They are also
sometimes called a foldable backpack or collapsible backpack.
Why Travel with a Packable Backpack?
Sometimes I empty out my main 40L backpack to use as a daypack on long hikes, but often
we want something smaller for sightseeing. A light, foldable backpack is ideal as it fits inside
our luggage on travel days.
A collapsible daypack is also useful when you don’t need a bag for the whole day. You could
pack a folding backpack inside your handbag or pocket to use when needed-for shopping
or if you want to remove your sweater or jacket later.
How to Choose the Best Packable Backpack
Capacity – We find 16 liters is suitable for a fleece, water bottle, snacks and Kindle. And if you
usually need to fit in both your laptops (15 and 11 inches). We recommend the 24 liters.
Weight – The lighter, the better. We prefer under 250g (8.5oz). If you want ultralight, there
are packs under 100g (3.5oz).
Size When Packed – Small enough to pack into the inside pocket to create a compact pouch
that doesn’t take up much space in your main luggage.
