Designed to be used as a packing cube in your bag or as a backpack at your destination.

The Packing Cube Backpack is a dual-purpose packing cube: in preparation for and during your journey, use it to organize and pack your clothing inside your bag — just like how you'd use a Large Packing Cube. When you reach your destination and it's time to leave your travel bag in the hotel or hostel, you can remove the contents of the Packing Cube Backpack and right-side it out, transforming it into a backpack with two compartments, an O-ring, and webbing backpack straps that are surprisingly comfortable for lighter loads. Pack a light jacket, wallet, lunch, water bottle, and map: you're ready to go out and explore, and you've saved space by not having to bring a separate backpack for day use.

Tom on designing the Packing Cube Backpack:

"I designed the 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. Overall, it was truly a group effort.

We took the prototype on our trip to Alaska and we used it every day: for grocery shopping, for organizing the trunk of the car, even for a day hike in Denali National Park. It's lightweight (only 9.2 oz / 260 grams), packs down to almost nothing, and yet, because of the Dyneema®/nylon ripstop fabric, tough as nails." —Tom

You can expect your TOM BIHN bag to give you years of hard service. Our bags are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the bag. That means if something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it at no charge.

Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and are most often evident while your bag is still new. Keep in mind that daypacks and briefcases are often subject to serious wear in everyday use. We often see TOM BIHN bags that are still solid and in use after five, ten, fifteen, even twenty or twenty-five years, with minor repairs needed here or there. But remember: only true love lasts forever.
