The sun is out, your backpack is packed, you’re off on your hike, you reach a clearing, grab your food and realize… you forgot a blanket. Never again will you face such a conundrum with the WalkBag, a small waterproof backpack that rolls out into a beach towel, so no matter where you are, a towel-cum-blanket is always at hand.

When turned inside out, the multifunctional 13-liter backpack reveals a 71 x 29.5-in cotton towel sewn into the inside. The towel even has a sleeve attached to the end for an inflatable pillow to be inserted or just some sweaters if you feel like it.

While the bag may be considered petite for serious hikers, it is perfect for a day jaunt or for beach bums. And with a waterproof compartment to protect all technological vitals, the two-in-one dynamic allows people to enjoy leisurely activities with one less thing on their mind. So if you are at the beach or need to dry off from an impromptu jump in the river, the WalkBag is there to keep you, and your personal belongings dry.
