    Travel Laundry Stuff Sack in a Daylight Backpack

    The DLBP has become my go-to bag for 1-2 night trips, and I think it has just enough built-in organization for my liking, as well. But I find myself wishing I had somewhere to store my dirty laundry, and I'm wondering if the TLSS would fit into the bottom of the DLBP. The TLSS measures 11.8" x 5.5" x 5.5" and the DLBP 17.3 x 11.8 x 5.1 so it seems possible, but probably not ideal.

    Has anyone tried this with a relatively full TLSS? Or is there a size of stuff sack that you find works well with the DLBP?

    @bermudajes,

    I haven't tried to use a full TLSS (A30 size) with the DLBP in the manner you describe, but whe I first posted pictures of this in Laundry Stuff Sacks are here thread, I was not tempted to try to put the stuffed TLSS for A30 into the DLBP horizontally. This is the picture that I took of what it looked like placed vertically in the DLBP (next to my TriStar)


    There are a lot of other pictures in that thread, including pictures of how much the TLSS for A30 bulged when placed horizontally into the front bottom pocket of the Synapse 25. You can take a look through, starting with the post for my picture shown above:

    Maybe someone else who has tried this extensively with the DLBP can give you a better answer.

    Very helpful, thank you! (And the link to the other thread reminded me that I have two new-to-me PCSBs - I could easily just use one for clean and one for dirty, and they'd probably fit better than the TLSS.)

    I found the Eagle Creek Half Cubes a good size for the DLBP. I know that there's a version with a divider and two zippers for clean and dirty clothes, maybe that would be an option?

    That's my setup for most short-term travel.

    Greetings,
    I used the Eagle Creek Specter Compression half cube. In compressed mode, it hardly seemed like I had anything in the Daylight Backpack. elisa

    If you're looking for a specifically TB solution, I bet the Stowaway cubes will fit in the shingles very well.

    I can go five days with a DLBP (assuming I'm packing summer clothes). I usually stack. Bottom
    is a full PCSB with clothes then a small snake charmer with delicates and a clear organizer pouch with toiletries. You could easily put a second PCSB on top for dirties instead.
