Pick of the Day: New Outlander Packable Lightweight Travel Backpack

This compact backpack folds down small when you don’t need it, or expands to carry lots when you do.

What Is It: A backpack that folds down into itself when not in use.

Why It’s Smart:

• Packs away into zippered inner pocket

• Unfolds into a backpack with a 33 liter capacity

• Lightweight (weighs 0.5 lbs.)

• Durable and water-resistant

• Comes with a lifetime warranty

• Side pockets hold water bottles

• Large main compartment and three smaller zipper pockets keep everything organized and secure

Where to Buy: Available on Amazon.
