When your penchant for haggling leaves you with more stuff than you can fit in your luggage, throw it all in the Dakine Stashable 20L Backpack for the flight back home.

Replacing another stashable
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I had a backpack from a different brand that packed down to about the size of a hamburger. It was awesome on my international travels, but lasted a pretty sad amount of time before it ripped at a festival.
I have had good luck with Dakine packs in the past, so I gave this one a shot. It packs down pretty small. It is in a tube about 7 inches long and 3 inches in diameter or so. Pretty easy to stash inside itself and hide in your bigger pack.
The pocket layout is simple, but should do fine for travel essentials. So far, it seems solid, but I haven't fully tested it yet packed with weight and in travel conditions. If things go awry when I get a chance to use it, I will update my review.
Perfect stash-able pack
