Packing Video - The Magic Bag

My Inspiration 

SnapN'Go Duffle Bag was inspired by my recent Japan trip.

I went crazy buying as many popcorn buckets as I could from Disneyland! I had difficulties pushing the luggage while using a shopping bag as shopping bags do not have luggage sleeves for security. I kept stopping to prevent the bags from falling off luggage while keeping an eye on my daughter to see if she can cope with her own luggage and shopping bag. Another crazy mama's day trying to keep everything in order.  I need a Magic Bag!


Slim and Regular versions.
Both are the same sizes with Regular version catering to thicker fabric base.

  • Folded in the Pocket Pouch - 8 1/2" x 7 1/2" (20.3 x 19 cm)

Deciding on your fabric combination (Important!). This is not your usual Duffle Bag as it will be folded into a pocket. Thickness of the fabric is the key in deciding which version is suitable. The below list is not exhaustive but includes the bases that we have tested.

    Slim Version

    • Crease/Wrinkle resistant fabric such as polycanvas.
    • Ripstop, polyester or nylon waterproof/water resistant canvas 210D (without PVC coating).
    • Nylon fabric is more pliable than polyester but it tends to be more slippery which may be harder to fold into the pouch.
    • Thickness not more than 0.2 mm.

    Regular Version (with Gusset)

    • Slim fabric recommendation + adjustable straps.
    • Waterproof/water resistant canvas 420D/600D.
    • Water-repellent fabric 75D with woven backing.
    • Thickness not more than 0.3 mm or 335 gsm.

      Fabric Not Recommended

      • Fabric that requires interface (CW/CL).
      • Fabric that has PVC coating as it will disintegrate over time.
      • Fabric that is stretchable.
