Bought to use as a day bag to take when travelling with bigger luggage so attracted to the fact it can pack into its own pocket. However, whats not clear from the description is that you have to remove (and pack separately) the internal padding to do this. Otherwise as described.

This bag is pretty much exactly what I wanted, except for one massive flaw. It's not even slightly waterproof. I'm not expecting it to be like a drybag, but I do want to be able to spend more than 20 minutes in the rain before everything inside is totally soaked. I can't see that some water resistance would add that much weight. As it is, I have to keep everything inside it in drybags- adding to the weight of what is supposed to be a super light pack!
