Packable Backpack FAQs
What is a packable backpack?
A packable backpack is a backpack that folds and can be stored in another bag, backpack, or purse for easy carrying. Then, when you need it, you can take it out, unfold it, and fill it with all your accessories, souvenirs, and gear. Unlike other types of travel backpacks, foldable backpacks make it easy to bring an extra bag with you just in case you decide to pick something up while traveling, or they can be used as day packs when you’re going on a hike or trip to the beach.
Additionally, you can pack your foldable backpack in your luggage, so it won’t need to be checked as an extra bag.
What styles of packable bags does Eagle Creek make?
Eagle Creek sells two styles of packable bags. Our lightweight packable backpack is designed to go anywhere and fit in any other bag. It can store up to 20 liters and weighs only 6 ounces, so it won’t even feel like you’re carrying it.
Our second style, the packable waist bag, offers lightweight, hands-free carry of all your essentials, including IDs and credit cards, accessories, and makeup. It has a 2-liter capacity, weighs only 3 ounces, and like the packable backpack, it packs up super small and can be stored just about anywhere, even in the pocket of another bag.
Does Eagle Creek have different colors of packable backpacks?
We know how important it is for travelers to showcase their unique travel style, which is why our packable backpacks are available in a range of colors — from black to rising sun and arctic sea green. The best part? Our packable backpack colors match our packable waist bag colors. So mix and match or choose your favorite color and never go without your packable bags.

What size packable backpack is the best for traveling?
The best size packable backpack depends on where you’re going and what you’ll be doing. For example, if you’re hiking and want to bring a water bottle, extra shoes, and other essentials, you’ll prefer a larger collapsible backpack. However, if you’re traveling the streets of a new city and want to ensure your cash and cards are safe at your side, you may prefer a packable waist bag.
What sizes do Eagle Creek’s collapsible backpacks come in?
Eagle Creek foldable backpacks are available in two sizes. Our backpack folds to 10.25 x 18.5 x 5.5 inches and packs down to 7.5 x 5 x 2.5 inches. The packable waist bag folds to 9.5 x 6 x 2.5 inches and packs down to 7 x 5 x 1 inch.
