WaterField Unveils Elegant, Lightweight Packable Tote for Travel and Every Day Use


WaterField’s unveils the new crowdsourced Packable Tote, the second of WaterField’s four featherweight, highly-functional,  professional-looking packable travel bags, created with input from over 1,000 customer design participants for the company's Packable Bag Month. The Packable Tote, made from a custom, high-tech, water- and wrinkle-resistant textile, is flexible enough for the beach and elegant enough for a fancy outing.


San Francisco, CA — June 15, 2021 — WaterField unveils the Packable Tote, the second of four lightweight, durable, community-designed travel bags for the company’s Packable Bag Month.

The sleek 12 oz. tote  packs into an interior pocket for stashing into luggage, under a car seat, or just about anywhere. Attention to detail differentiates this Packable Tote from the competition: a beautiful liner adds durability and is easy to clean, pockets with waterproof zippers keep small items organized and protected from the elements, and the bag’s custom high-tech fabric stays unwrinkled and looks sleek enough to take anywhere.


“This is the packable bag I find indispensable,” said company owner Gary Waterfield. “I keep one in my suitcase so I have an easy and dignified way to carry my purchases through the hotel lobby. I store one in my car to be ready for both expected and the unexpected extra stuff I may need to carry. To make our packable bag look so good and stay mostly wrinkle-free, we created our own custom textile that is substantial, lightweight, and elegant so that the Tote doesn’t look like a packable bag.”

Two weatherproof, secure, zippered pockets safeguard valuables — one on the front and another inside the tote. The front pocket includes a sewn-in key hook and the interior pocket doubles as the Tote’s stuff sack. Two deep side pockets hold up to 3.5-inch diameter water bottles, snacks, or an umbrella. Comfortable straps on WaterField’s Packable Tote are long enough to wear over the shoulder and short enough to hold by hand.


The new foldable tote is made from a custom combination of soft-to-the-touch, fine-textured Taslan nylon laminated with tricot fabric for structure, and lined with silver, diamond-patterned, ripstop nylon that illuminates the interior and is easy to clean. A custom micro-porous coating repels water and wrinkles but allows breathability.



Features at a Glance:

  • Made from a water- and wrinkle-resistant custom-designed high-tech fabric that is lightweight, breathable, and strong.
  • An interior zippered pocket for valuables doubles as the bag’s stuff sack.
  • Additional organization includes two water-bottle pockets and a secure zippered front pocket with a sewn-in key hook.
  • An elegant, diamond-patterned, silver ripstop nylon liner is easy-to-clean and illuminates the bag’s interior.
  • Comfortable straps are long enough to carry over the shoulder and short enough to carry by hand.
  • Waterproof zippers maintain the bag’s clean lines.
  • Custom matte black metal zipper pulls are easy to use.
  • Reinforced stitching at stress points bolsters longevity.                                                       

WaterField incorporated input from over 1,000 design participants in its new Packable Bag Collection. The WaterField Packable Tote joins a full line of bags for work, travel, and leisure. Based on participant survey responses and thorough real-world testing, WaterField created three additional packable bags to address users' needs. The Packable Backpack, and — coming soon — the Packable  Duffel and Sling.
