The Packable Duffel Provides Flexibility

I bought the Packable Duffel for those times when I want to fly with more stuff in one direction than the other. It's well designed and the build quality is first rate. It packs into itself in a small volume. Another great Waterfield product.

Exactly what we were looking for

My wife and I both received our packable duffels and were delighted for different reasons. I liked how light it was, the clever size flexibility and how VERY packable it was. My wife also appreciated how light it was while still having the inside and outside pockets for keeping things organized an accessible. All in all another well thought out product.


The spacious Packable Duffel is ideal for packing clothes, gym apparel, sports equipment, travel gear, souvenirs, etc. 


With input from over 1000 customers, we set out to design a packable bag ideal for both travel and every day. 


To support multiple uses, we created a custom-made material that combines Taslan — a high-tech woven fabric that feels natural and substantial — with a layer of tricot mesh for structure and a water-resistant coating. 


This durable, lightweight textile still looks crisp and unwrinkled even after it has been stuffed or folded.  


The Packable Duffel conveniently folds down into its small interior pocket and tucks away into your suitcase for emergency use.


The spacious interior expands 25% to hold additional gear. A beautiful silver lining adds extra strength and wipes clean easily. Double zipper pulls can be locked together for extra security. With these thoughtful details, this might become your favorite duffel for everyday, not just for traveling. 



1. Lay the Packable Duffel flat and take out the interior pocket. 

2. Fold into thirds toward the middle. 

3. Roll from the bottom toward the pocket.

4. Turn the pocket inside out and flip the roll into the pocket.

5. Zip it up and go.


We asked our community what their ideal packable bag would include. They told us they wanted the convenience of a packable bag with the functionality of a regular WaterField bag. 


Using the right textile was key, so we set about creating one that combined packability with style.


The community also had different ideas of the type of packable bag they wanted, so we created a collection — a Packable Backpack, Tote, Duffel, and Sling. See the process from start to finish here
