Small internal compression bags

Hi everyone,
I am trying to find small small internal compression bag organizers for my daypack, I live in Spain and was looking at Decathlon, but can only find the usual non compression organizers, I need something to keep my fleece or lightweight coat in, another for wet gear and another for general accessories.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

I’ve got some by ‘Sea to summit’ the smallest is 5 or 6 litres. They’re well made.

Alternately the roll-top clip-fastening dry-bags (many brands, I use ‘Exped’) work well.

As to where you can get them in Spain, I don’t know.
Ok thanks I will check Amazon

Do they have to compress? If you don't take too much gear, it might not matter.

I use the Osprey 20l Dry Sack to compress and keep my clothes dry. I can fit all my spare clothes into this dry bag and because of its cube shape it fits nicely inside my 20L back pack which in turns satisfies Ryanair's hand luggage dimensions that fits under the seat. I've tried other compression sacks, but they tend to me more cylindrical which leaves a lot of empty unused space in my backpack.
The backpack that I use is actually a running backpack - Ultimate Direction Fastpack 20L, but I find it big enough for everything that I need.
 
I have a Granite gear brand dry bag which is only 13 liters and it holds all my clothes. I sit on it in the morning to compress it and and then shove it in my pack and it conforms perfectly to whatever space I need. I have been using the same one since 2016 for both the Camino and camping and it also makes a reasonable pillow with the clothes in it, if needed. Granite gear makes several sizes.

Another recommendation for the Sea-to-Summit dry bags. The compressed down nicely and remained sealed until I unrolled the tops! Work great to both compress and keep things dry.

Try amazon.es They should carry them.

Alternately, I have gotten rid of most of the stuff sacks and bags for my packable jackets, etc. I just roll them up and put a heavy rubberband around them now. I just use a dry bag for my evening clothes and a stuff sack for my CPAP.

I don't know whether you are looking for physical stores or online stores.
In any case, have a look at:

My down pufffy jacket packs into a 1 liter ziploc. Toiletries get another ziplock. Sundries get a third. I carry a couple extra ziplocks for unexpecteds and miscellaneous, and a couple superlight bags from produce section of supermarket for leftover food (they are lighter and larger than ziplocks and easily replaceable without having to buy a whole box-full). All spare clothes, sleeping bag and inflatable pillow fit into an 8 liter Sea to Summit dry bag that weighs about 55 grams. I initially used an 8 liter Sea to Summit compression sack, but since my 33 liter rucksack has lots of excess space anyway, the complicated strapping and extra weight of the compression bag only made for inefficiency, and it cost more. I can actually compress the drybag considerably by sqeezing it against the floor while rolling the top closed. In rare instances of wet gear carried during the day, it will hang off the outside of the pack to dry or gets stored between nylafume pack liner and pack itself; no need for its own sack. I hand wash dirty laundry at the end of the day anyway, so no need to have a special means for routinely carrying accumulated dirty laundry.....which is pretty disgusting and inefficient, in my humble opinion🙃.
 
Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
I find the shape of the Osprey stuff sacks is more useful in my pack than the rounder Sea to Summit. I just sit in them to do them up so they expand to fill the space available to them as I walk along.
