For a many years now, this lightweight, water resistant travel pack has served us well on numerous hikes, shopping trips, and sightseeing adventures. Whenever we are going out for the day, it holds our camera, sunblock, insect repellent, handkerchiefs, hand cleaner, sunglasses, water bottle, hats and more. And there is still room left when we pick up a few groceries.

We have taken it on snorkeling boat trips too and it has kept our belongings from getting wet from splashes. It has stood up really well – still looks new in fact. It came in lots of pretty colors too – we bought a bright green one. We thought it was a terrific value at the price and in fact, bought a second one.

This particular model is no longer available, but there are plenty of other choices. We think having a lightweight, water resistant travel pack is an essential item for any traveler. Carrying our full size backpacks when on a day hike or shopping around town is impractical because they make it difficult to navigate in narrow places. We also rarely need to carry as much as they hold and they add excess weight.

We think the G4Free Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack is a particularly good choice. It is the perfect size for day trips and folds up nicely–one of the features we really appreciate.
