If you’re trying to pack light it can sometimes be a problem when you want to buy some extra stuff or go on weekend trips while traveling. The solution is to pick up a small bag to actually pack in your main carry-on bag. One of our favorites right now is the Eagle Creek Packable Duffel bag.
This lightweight packable duffel comes stuffed into itself actually. You simply unzip it and unroll it into a full 46 litre duffle. It features durable handles as well as a full shoulder strap which is handy. A lot of similar sized packable bags actually don’t come with a shoulder strap. The bag material is made of a very durable 150D polyester ripstop fabric. Eagle Creek excels in this area and have made a very solid bag here. The main compartment on the bag is fully lockable with dual zippers.
When fully folded up and stowed, the bag is only 8″ x 5″ x 1.5″. I have personally taken this bag with me on a 2 week trip overseas and came in very handy for overnight trips as well as piling in a bunch of clothes on my return trip. This way I basically can almost double my packing capacity on my return flight (after I have bought a bunch of stuff on my trip).
