as much as I hate this store Eddie Bauer has just such a product, I saw it the other day when I was returning some piece of shit that I bought from them. But if you want a "CHEAP"(price and possibly quality, I’ve never really used this one and didn’t have the time to thoroughly look this one over) fold up bag this is it, its 16usd and it fold up the size of a grapefruit

Here’s a link:

my advice, i know its sounds retro and something you might see on Saved by the bell. but a fanny pack is what i use. not one of those cloth ones you keep your pass port in under your shirt, but like on neon green and pink ones you wound find at thrift store, cheap, easy, and if you loose it, oh darn....

Yay for finding things in the closet!

I have the same problem... My closet is like a black hole - things go in, but nothing comes out It takes a full day expedition to go into the uncharted territory to find that last piece of camping/traveling gear at the beggining of summer.

Man, I've had so many free daypacks that I've gotten at trade shows and other work-related things, and I hated all of them and gave them away... Next time I come into a stash of them, I should hold some sort of contest on here to give 'em out

In the meantime, anyone who needs a cheap daypack or duffle should check out Target - they have all sorts of crap - not the highest quality, but they make for a good laundry/souvenir bag to stuff at the bottom of your backpack on your next travel. In fact, they have *gag* Eddie Bauer stuff really cheap as well. I picked up a highly-foldable duffle bag for like $6 on clearance
