The Convertible Packing Cube/Backpack (like the Convertible Packing Cube/Shoulder Bag) is a Packing Cube that can be used with our Aeronaut or Western Flyer carry-on travel bags to organize and keep your clothing neat and separated from the other items in the bag. Once you reach your destination, you can remove the contents of the Packing Cube and right-side it out, transforming it into a backpack with two compartments. Available for pre-order now, ships by late September. $35.
“I designed the Convertible Packing Cube/Backpack as a result of customer requests from our Forums; in fact, I think it’s the first product we’ve made that was 100% inspired by customer feedback. Many of the details, of course, reflect my design experience, and my sewing crew helped to refine some of the subtleties of the construction. Over-all, it was truly a group effort.”
First feedback on the Convertible Packing Cube/Backpack:
“Decided to actually use the cube/backpack as it was intended. It holds a large amount as a packing cube. Since I was using a new/different bag, I was able to also pack the smaller narrow compartment on the bottom of the cube. Almost everything i was carrying fit in the cube (4 shirts, 1 pair shorts, 1 pair slacks, pj’s – yeah, I know — 3 pair underwear and socks, workout clothing). Before putting in the bag, I wandered around using it as a backpack – surprisingly comfortable – and easy to get on and off. It’s well constructed and amazingly light when empty.” — Read more of rabergnc’s first thoughts on the bag in the TOM BIHN Forums.
