Have you ever been caught in the one bag dilemma? You’re leaving your hotel for the day and looking down at your virtually empty 35L travel pack, weighing the pros and cons between taking that monstrosity to the coffee shop or just grabbing a to-go bag from the restaurant downstairs…
There must be a better way, right?
In this review, we are checking out the Matador Daylite16—a compressible daypack that just might be the perfect companion for your one bag travel pack. It’s got a 16 liter capacity, yet you can toss it into a compression sack and throw it inside your larger pack. Hell, you could throw this thing in your jacket pocket if you want.
The Matador is a slick looking pack that comes in two different colors—gray and indigo. We’ve been testing out the gray one, and while it does have a bit of that “outdoorsy” look, it’s got some clean, minimalistic lines that we really like.
As far as materials go, the big player here is a 30D siliconized CORDURA® ripstop nylon. And if you’re not up to date on your fabric lingo, that just means it is a lightweight, strong fabric. If you take a close look at the fabric you’ll notice a hexagonal pattern—this is where the ripstop comes in. If the fabric gets ripped, those little hexagons will stop it from getting any bigger.
Overall, the Matador Daylite16 is an ultralight, ultra-compressible daypack that is a perfect companion for your larger, one bag travel pack. Coming in at a solid 16L, this thing can hold a bunch of stuff—including a 15” laptop—and still pack down to the size of a tube of a muffin, while weighing in at only 4.1 ounces. Need we say more? No need to worry about lugging your large travel backpack around a new city or into a coffee shop—just fill up the Matador with a few essentials and get on with it!
