Just received it. Exactly what I wanted. A packable that fits my carry on and can expand. Travel regularly. Look forward to using it.

Not quite on the mark

The concept is great but I have two quibble with the handles. I find the handles are too long and lack a means of binding the handles together, likely by a snap wrap. It may be I simply misunderstood the design and description when considering the purchase but it doesn’t fit my exact need.

Well made and great design for utilization. Have purchased multiple items over many years and all products are long lasting.

Bought a Second One as a Gift

This packable tote is so practical and well built I bought my husband one for his birthday. He loves it! WaterField makes me a gift giving goddess!

Last night, we gave this Packable Duffel to the leader of our local non-profit organization, during a shared dinner. Without any hesitation, she declared "I'm taking this SAILING!" I think she could see/feel the light-weightness and the water-resistance, without having read any description. We initially purchased this because of our local musician friend who loves his Packable Tote! Thank you!


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.


These bags are designed to be both packable for taking on trips and usable for daily carry. The WaterField Packable Collection uses custom-made lightweight, durable, water-resistant material that stays crisp and wrinkle-free when unpacked.  This gives all the bags a clean, professional look. 

All the Packables fold into their own pockets so they can be stashed in your luggage without taking up much room. The Packable Backpack and Packable Sling can hold small tablets and laptops in their own protective sleeve. The Packable Tote and Packable Duffel are expandable to accommodate multiple items, and the Packable Crossbody is sized to carry just your daily essentials. 


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
