Recently I sold my Sea to Summit daypack, which served me well, however it drove me bonkers by not going back into the sleeve nicely. (Truly a personal issue… it’s a great daypack.)
I found another ultralight pack nosing around a drugstore and it passed the “go gently into that good storage case” test. It’s the Lewis N Clark electrolight pack. They also have ultralight compression micro packing cubes and dopp kits which I also tested out and loved. REI has almost the exact same micro packing cubes in grey if you want to use your dividend there 🙂
NOTE: to all the Tom Bihn afficionados, the micro packing cubes work perfectly in the Night Flight Travel Duffle center section for packing as well, but, I digress…
The shoulder straps are nicely lined with a bit of a grippy material which helps when you are wearing a Patagonia slippery down jacket. The material isn’t shiny, but has a gloss to it while still feeling a bit velvety. I toss it into my one bag carry set up and can use it as a shopping bag or a plane stuff bag while I’m in the air.
I’m ready to go test this out on a trip now!
