Don’t you wish you could have a spare bag when you travel to pack all those souvenirs and gifts at the end of your trip? Maybe a back up bag in case something happens to your regular one? A foldable duffle bag for travel can be your answer. Say hello to lightweight construction, ample storage, easy access and rough ‘n’ tough materials to boot!
Just slip this folded little accessory into your handbag or suitcase, whip it out and unfold when you need it and you magically have an extra piece of luggage! If you’re flying, you can take this new bag as your carry on while you check in your other luggage. Another type of bag that folds and is good as an extra travel bag is a packable daypack because it is easy to carry. The Gobi Gear Segmented stuff sacks are a bit like duffels except that they open from their ends and the interior is divided into packing compartments to keep things neat and organized.
If you’re going to be using your on board bag both ways, then you’ll want something more durable, like a proper carry on duffel bag.

Bago Travel Duffle Bag For Women, Men And Kids
Bago brings you a neat range of travel accessories for the whole family. Whether you need a foldable backpack for your daily chores, a carry-all for college/school, packing cubes or an all encompassing bag for your travels, Bago is one of the best in the business. Solid and sturdy, Bago gear is super lightweight, durable and fashionable as well. They are made of Nylon Honeycomb RipStop fabric with high quality corded zippers.
Bago’s 27″ duffle bags are available in a range of vibrant shades, making them eye candy too. It measures 27” by 11” by 15” when open and 11.8” by 12.6” when folded, with a capacity of 85 litres. There is also a medium size 23″, measuring 10 x 13 x 23 inch with 53L capacity when open and 10 x 11 inches when folded.
The duffle bag cleverly folds up into itself, transforming into a flat pouch that you can throw into your regular suitcase or slip into a handbag. It weighs less than a pound and has an 85 litre capacity so it’s as roomy as a regular suitcase. When unfolded, its shape is cuboid, making it ideal for use with packing cubes if you want its contents to stay in one place and not shift around.
Two front zipper pockets are useful for storing things for easy access. These pockets are also accessible when the bag is folded up, so you can use the pouch even as a purse! It has two grab handles with Velcro wrap and features a removable shoulder strap for versatility.
Samsonite Tote-A-Ton Duffle Luggage
From the market brand leader themselves comes this range of superior luggage. Samsonite’s tote-a-ton Duffle range may come across as the ‘too light to be sturdy’ kind but rest assured it is definitely not.
Crafted with 400 denier nylon, there is not much that this duffle cannot withstand. Samsonite’s tote-a-ton 32.5″ duffle can carry a ton and can be used for storage or travel. Several reviewers claim that this bag was stuffed to capacity and still held up without any damage to the bag or even signs of stress.
The opening is through a full length zipper on the top and a small zippered pocket inside lets you pack small items that won’t get lost in the main interior. Though it does not have a shoulder strap, the comfort grip grab handles can slip over the telescopic handle of a wheeled bag for ease of transport.
Available in 4 select colors and even as a pack of 3, Samsonite proves its mettle with this piece of luggage. Collapsible for extreme ease and 100% washable, it is also good value for money considering the brand name.
Wandf Foldable Travel Duffel Bag
The Wandf Foldable Travel Duffel Bag is a convenient carry bag for anyone and everyone on the go. While it isn’t the largest of the lot, it is convenient enough for daily use and as a compact carry-on while travelling.

Shacke Duffel XL – Foldable w/ Memory Foam Shoulder Pad
Shacke is best known for its widely popular travel packing cubes, so it’s not hard to see why their foldable Shacke Duffel XL would be another home run. Available in just one size for now at 27 x 16 x 12 inches that folds into a zipped 13 x 14 inch pouch, the Shacke is made of nylon.
Since this is a large bag, the entire construction of it centers around making it stronger and more durable than most other competitors because of the heavy load that you’ll most likely pack into it. It is smartly fitted with a large memory foam shoulder pad for an extra comfortable carry over or across the shoulder using the adjustable and removable shoulder strap. This strap is anchored on either end by metal fixtures and not plastic ones, and both the main pocket and front pocket feature dual YKK zippers that can be locked with TSA locks. If you decide to carry the bag by the dual handles instead of over or across the shoulder, those are padded as well. The bottom of the bag is double lined.
This Shacke Duffel XL is available in black with blue trim and aqua blue with black trim.

It comes in two sizes – 22” and 18”, and in four colors. It features two shoulder straps, a double zipper closure on top and an interior removable zippered pocket.
