Design notes

Now you see it, now you don’t. The incredible shrinking Squid is a stow-away drawstring backpack that appears on demand to accommodate your cargo carrying needs, then returns to the fold just as quickly. Simple and useful in equal measure, the Squid’s 20 litre interior and zippered front pocket combo is great for gym gear or groceries, super for schoolbooks or sports, and handy on holidays as a bag-within-a-bag back up for washing, toting, day packing or heavy duty free retail therapy.

Outpost Collection


  • Flexible, accessible space. To ensure you can put lots of stuff in and get to it pronto, we first put in lots of thought. that’s why we gave the squid a seriously large 20 litre main compartment, as well as a quick access front zippered picket
  • Lightweight and compact. Tipping the scales at just 200 grams, the squid weighs about the same as a supermodel’s breakfast, while its 21mm x 12mm x 6mm folded dimensions allow it to slip unnoticed into the tightest packed suitcase, or even your jacket pocket
  • Flesh friendly drawstring.the more stuff you carry, the more you’ll appreciate the squids’s 4mm diameter thick drawstring cord. Even over the long haul, its soft but strong woven polypropylene remains gentle on your hands and your shoulders
  • Easy open/easy close mechanism - the combination of woven polypropylene cord and oversized drawstring hemming makes for fast opening and equally quick, no-gap closure
  • Waterproofing measures - Be it rain, hail, sleet, snow, beer or mixed drinks, the squid’s 150d rip-stop outer and oversized drawstring hemming are designed to weather the storm and keep what’s inside dry
