"Put yourself out there." We love everything about this mantra from Matador, which is clearly expressed through their innovative products. Matador prides themselves on their line of packable adventure gear, which is what drew us to the DL 16 Backpack.
Packable gear pairs perfectly with travel. The DL 16 folds down into itself, into a small storage bag, so small that it can fit in the palm of your hand. This allows you to conveniently pack your day bag inside your main luggage, without sacrificing any space, so you don't have to carry around another bag when traveling between destinations.
And when unpacked, it functions as a 16 liter backpack with enough room and durability for day hikes or walking around town; the perfect day bag. The Cordura® material used to make this bag allows it to be ultra-lightweight, durable, waterproof, and puncture resistant.
When you travel, you will need some type of day bag. Something to carry around water, a guidebook, your phone and camera, or a place for souvenirs. This bag from Matador is the best day bag we have found. Its tough enough to stand the rigors of travel and exploration, the perfect size to carry around for the day, and compact enough to stow in your main bag when not in use.
