I LIKE IT.
If you want the short version... that's it.
In April, I ordered 2 different ultralight travel backpacks to use for vehicle "get home" emergency bags. I wasn't sure which I wanted, so I ordered both. This is the one I use in my truck and I love it.
It's the Ultralight Packable Travel Backpack that I ordered from Amazon.

Order it Now before it's too late!
This is when the pack first arrived; very small and fits in the palm of your hand when it's not in use.
It easily unpacks from itself as the package is actually the pocket of the bag. No extra bags or pieces to keep track of.
Very large once it's unpacked! Ultra ULTRA light and holds 25L.
I love the pockets and it's well made. Sewing, zippers and seams are all very well crafted.
You can see how large it becomes once unpacked. It's a regular sized backpack but weighs almost nothing empty, and is durable enough to be used as a day pack, a hiking pack, or a carry on for travel.
The straps have light cushioning and they are well placed so it is comfortable to wear, doesn't rub your neck or pull tightly.
I fit my Toshiba Satellite laptop in it for testing the size, but since mine is a 'get home' bag in my truck, it's currently filled with emergency items, maps, flashlight, water, food, blanket, etc. etc.
I bought a different version for my husbands vehicle and will be reviewing that one soon. Bottom line, YES I WOULD ORDER THIS ONE AGAIN. Actually, it folds up so small it would be a good addition when traveling to throw into your suitcase or bag as a 'backup' in case you need more room/space or need a daypack. It weighs almost nothing and takes up little space, but provides much added space when you need it.
