One of the things I ALWAYS pack on a trip is a durable, stuffable daypack. With the ability to collapse into the size of a pocket or hand-sized pouch, they take up virtually no room but offer all the convenience a space-conscious traveler wants.
Have a little less stuff? Just cram this bag into your bigger backpack and forget about it.
Buy too much? Heading out for a quick walk around town? Pop open your daypack and you have an easy, light bag ready to go!
Yes, I LOVE stuffable bags and especially daypacks, but it wasn’t Sea to Summit delivered a sample of the Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Daypack to me that I knew how much.
This bag PACKS UP SO SMALL! I mean… just look!
It’s so tiny you can justify snapping it on a keychain, or tossing it in your smaller purses. Honestly, part of the reason I enjoy this bag so much is because I just like showing people how it stuffs itself into this adorable little pouch.
But, that’s not all:
- This stuffable daypack is made of siliconized nylon – the kind that doesn’t rip or tear.
- It’s durable enough to handle everything from groceries to books to a few pieces of electronics.
- It weighs nothing (just 2.4 ounces).
- It holds 20 liters.
I used this daypack quite a bit on the Silk Roadistan tour earlier this year. Sure, I had my super awesome PacSafe SlingSafe daypack for my main travel days, but that wasn’t always needed. A quick walk around the ger in Mongolia, where I just wanted a bag to hold a bottle of water and a jacket, called for the Sea to Summit Ultra-sil Daypack. As did a quick visit to the shops for food and beverages.
And, with its great unisex qualities, even Pat wore it around here and there.
My main gripe with this cute stuffable daypack would be the lack of extra pouch or zippered compartment. I would have loved a front pocket to toss in smaller items instead of being forced to throw them all in the single compartment.
Besides that, the Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Daypack makes for a great addition to any female’s packing list!
>> Pick up the daypack on Amazon.
*This daypack was provided free-of-charge by Sea to Summit, but I honestly love it and use it regularly on my travels.
