While getting ready for our trip abroad, we decided that it would be a good idea for both of us to have a decent sized backpack to use as our inflight personal item. After searching for different types of backpacks, we came across these ZOMAKE Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack and decided to give them a try.
We received the two backpacks in small carrying cases, or so we thought, and decided to take one out to see just how big it was. While taking the backpack out of the carrying case, we realized that the backpack appeared to be inside out, but continued to remove it fully before turning it right side out. Once the backpack was fully removed from the carrying case, it then became clear that it wasn't a carrying case, but it was in fact the inner pocket of the main compartment of the backpack. The way that they made the inner pocket the storage and/or carrying case for the backpack is really a great idea and we like it quite a bit.
The backpacks are made from a resilient material, based on the sheer number of items we were able to cram into them, and they are elongated to a more natural feel while wearing them on the back. There's a small pocket located on the outside of the front flap and another one on the inside, which doubles as the storage/carrying case. There are also two net style pockets on both sides that were able to have ~16oz water bottle each. After our trip, we washed both backpacks with our laundry (nothing special from the rest) and they turned out looking like new, which is another plus to these backpacks.
To try to explain how big these backpacks are, and how much they can store, here is a list of items that we were able to put into only one backpack (see image)... 2x deodorant (one 3oz and the other 2.6oz) 1 box - 4 5/8” x 3 1/4” x 1 7/8” (

These ZOMAKE lightweight backpacks are a great thing to have when traveling, as they have a good-sized capacity and the ability to store it inside of itself is awesome. We would highly recommend these as a backpack to anyone in the market for one, whether for your travel or every day need(s).

Ho preso questo zaino per poterlo portare a mare e per eventuali escursioni. Quando è arrivato l'ho trovato davvero piccolo e minimal nel suo contenitore. Piano piano l'ho aperto e mi sono reso conto che la busta che contiene lo zaino è la tasca interna dello stesso. Finito di rivoltarlo e sistemato lo zaino diventa davvero grande, di buona qualità e molto leggero! Ci metto un telo da mare, maschera subacquea, creme solari, telefoni, occhiali da sole e portachiavi. E avanza ancora spazio. Il colore blu poi è davvero bello. Nutro invece qualche perplessità sulla reale possibilità di poter piegare lo zaino e rimetterlo nella tasca interna. Ma per me va benissimo così.
I ordered this bag just before a family holiday because i wanted a light, foldable bag which we could use for day trips whilst away. We often take extra layers or picnic lunches and i have become fed up of having to carry bulky, empty bags all day, or having to use carrier bags to hold lunch until we eat. I have to say I am very impressed with this! Firstly, its packed up size is smaller than i had expected. It's easy to put away in another bag, a large pocket or can easily be clipped onto a belt to carry with you. Secondly, when in use as a bag it is actually surprisingly spacious. It is obviously not massive but i was able to comfortable carry a couple of sandwiches, drinks and an extra layer around. The bottle holders are a great feature too. And thirdly, it comes in a fantastic choice of colours. I have the blue and it's lovely and bright. This is obviously not the sturdiest or most substantial of bags, but it is a great, flexible option and i am sure if it's well looked after it will last well. So glad I bought one!
• Thicker quality material than some foldable backpacks • Main zips x 2 pull together – can be padlocked • 2 x zip pockets (Front / Inside) / 2 x mesh drinks bottle pockets • Thick mess straps easy to alter length – comfy on shoulders even with weight in the bag • Decent grab / top handle for picking up • Waterproof? Definitely showerproof – but not been out with it in torrential rain so can’t say waterproof • Folding up back into pouch - easy to fold and put back – approx. 7” when folded • Easy to get on and off shoulders
Just arrived and unpacked. I am pretty good at puzzles, crosswords, jigsaw etc., but how on earth I am going to get this back into its original size is beyond my comprehension.
Not very important though. The main thing for me is that it is a lot lighter, but holds the same as my other backpack. Will not get a lot of use, so lightweight is the important factor for me. I like the zipped compartment inside the main one, which will hold my phone and wallet securely.
First impressions... Really well made little backpack for sightseeing and going to the beach will suit my wife as she like to be hands free It feels sturdy enough for folks who will stuff it with all sorts of stuff like shoes and large bottles etc., Water resistance Well I don't know yet,but it's always a good idea to carry a plastic bag to fit as a liner. But It does look as if it might be water resistant at least.
