Looking for foldable/packable lightweight Duffel bag Carry-on size

I am looking for a lightweight foldable duffel bag that would fit in overhead bins when full or close to full. It would need to fold into size I can fit in small carry on roll aboard.

The XS Red Oxx Aviator will work very nicely.

I have this and I love it, but it is neither lightweight nor packable. The bag's construction is complete overkill for a backup duffel. The heavy-duty fabric used wastes weight and space since it doesn't fold well.

I have the REI stuff travel duffle. Not expensive, sturdy for the weight, very light, packable, and has backpack straps.

I have one of these that comes with me when I will need an extra bag on my travels. It's light, small, works very well for me.

Thanks everyone. The Eagle Creek packable duffel looks perfect and the price is right at $30.

I take it on long trips and find that it packs just fine for my needs. Yes, it is a very heavy-duty bag, built like a tank, yet weighs only about 1lb. It has seen heavy use and taken much abuse, but still looks new. By the time I depart for home it is usually pretty full and counts as my "personal item". I have several Red Oxx bags and this is one of my favorites.
