A Packable Emergency Backpack You Can Stash Almost Anywhere

Replace that mountain of awkward reusable shopping bags you've somehow amassed with Herschel's new packable backpack, which should make hauling home a week's worth of groceries a lot easier. Made from rip stop nylon, the packs can be squeezed into a compact internal pouch for easy storage or carrying as an emergency backup, and come complete with adjustable shoulder straps and an external pocket.

At just $30, available in a variety of bright colors, you might even want to keep one in your car to be prepared for random craft fair discoveries, stumbling across farmer's markets, or for stashing wet clothes after an unplanned trip to the beach. [Herschel via The Awesomer]
