The sharper edge to traveling in Asia

WoWasis field test: the tiny but durable Utra-Sil day pack miniaturizes to 2×3 inches

Compare the Ultra-Sil's size when packed in your luggage, then folded out for days use, in day-glo colors

So here’s the dilemma as we see it here at WoWasis: you’re traveling overseas, have one piece of big luggage, another smaller padded one for your netbook/tablet computer, which also holds a book or two. You know you’ll want to take a daypack overseas too, because you’ll be running around, and don’t want to take your padded computer bag as a daypack. But day packs can take up too much space in your standard luggage. How about taking a day pack that packs down into a 3 inch by 2 inch space? There is one! 

The Ultra-Sil daypack is made out of sturdy Cordura. When it unpacks, you get 2 back straps and a pack that holds 20 liters worth of anything, perfect for wet & dry beach towels, food, books, you name it. Here’s what they say about their pack: “The tiny packed size fits easily onto your key ring, in a jacket pocket or a purse. Packs down small so it easily fits in pockets, purses or luggage, lightweight 2.4 oz / 68g, bartack reinforced stitching on all stress points, two-way zipper closure.” 

It sells for $25 USD, but we’ll gladly pay for miniaturization when airlines are charging so much for added luggage and weight. We tested it, like its durability and convenience, and are now leaving our other day packs at home, we always carry this one. Highly recommended. Buy it now at the WoWasis estore.
