Tom Bihn Travel Stuff Sack


Originally posted on



Our Travel Stuff Sacks serve a variety of purposes: they stow and compress items like down/polyfill jackets and vests (constraining them to a smaller amount of space); they can be used to separate dirty clothes from clean clothes; and some folks prefer to use them for packing clothing that doesn’t need to be folded, like underwear — we don’t fold our underwear — do you? (On second thought, let’s not go there.)

The shape of our Travel Stuff Sacks is a little different than you might expect: the bottom isn’t square nor is it round. Rather, it’s an elongated or flattened circle, an oval — this shape looks sharp and helps make the Travel Stuff Sacks pack efficiently in bags like the AeronautSynapse, and others. The Sacks cinch shut with a drawstring closure and cord lock.

Travel Stuff Sacks are available in four sizes: 1 (very small — very light down vest), 2 (small — very light down jacket), 3 (medium — down jacket), and 4 (large — all of the above). Each size is available in a variety of colors — great for those of you who like to organize/pack by color (“I keep socks in the Wasabi Travel Stuff Sack and underwear in the Steel Travel Stuff Sack”).


Travel Stuff Sacks are made from our 200 denier Dyneema®/nylon ultralight ripstop fabric, produced especially for us in Japan and dyed in our own custom colors.
