An Improvised Day-pack
I shortened two of the straps (facing camera), and lengthened the other two (not seen) to act as shoulder straps. Once the food and a couple of water bottles were stored inside and the drawstring was tightened it is placed on your back and then you tuck the drawstring end beneath the "lid" of the compression sack and you are ready to go.
It worked great with the light load and we did not have to take along an extra pack that would have been taking up space during the rest of the trip. Let me know if you try it out!
