The multi-functional bag is made from lightweight polyester — it weights less than half a pound but has a capacity of 25 liters. When empty, it folds up completely and can be packed inside the included compact carrying bag. And once you've packed the bag, it's easy to carry, since it has traditional shoulder straps as well as a luggage pass-through that allows you to secure the bag on top of a rolling suitcase.
