WATERFLY Folding Smart Backpack

Posted on
June 11, 2019

Travelling with kids is fun, but you need to be prepared.

When mine were little we used to load up the pram / buggy with everything we needed for a day out, but now they are a little older, we take a backpack with us for the supplies we need for the trip.

We were sent the WATERFLY Folding Smart Backpack to review, and it really is a brilliant bag for travel because there are four ways to wear it – as a traditional backpack, a sling bag, a waist bag and a fitness bag on your arm / leg, all by simply detaching the parts you want to use by the clips!

The main bag has multiple compartments, so you can keep your contents organised. The main pouch has a strong safety inner zipped pocket for valuables, 2 x front zipper pockets for frequently-used items and 2 mesh side pockets for a drinks bottle and umbrella.

The backpack can be fastened around your waist too, with an additional bum bag type back which can be detached, perfect for storing your phone or a small camera.

The kids are now in Scouts, Cubs and Beavers and often do camps or hikes and as this bag is water resistant, it is perfect for them to take with them, as they can choose which part to use.

The Waterfly Smart Backpack is currently priced at $37.99 and is available directly from

    This is so clever! My brother travels a lot and would find this so useful I think – I’ll have to order him one for Christmas 🙂

    This is so handy! I have been thinking we need to get a new backpack for our family travels and love the fact this folds. What a great idea.

    That is a really innovative idea. I’ve recently updated my backpack else I’d have looked at these

    I love the idea that you can just take one part of it. I always used to look for ways of letting my children carry some of their own stuff. This looks super useful.

    I am loving this backpack, something I could do with, with all my never-ending backpacking trips.

    Oooh I love the idea of this. A great way to have a multi-functional bag rather than a series of bags that only get utilised on the odd occasion.
