We'll donate $5 of every purchase of a black bag to Black Dog Institute:


The Black Dog Institute is dedicated to understanding, preventing and treating mental illness.

The Black Dog Institute was founded in 2002 and is internationally recognised as a pioneer in the identification, prevention and treatment of mental illness, and the promotion of wellbeing.

We aim to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness through the rapid translation of high-quality research into improved clinical treatments, increased access to mental health services and delivery of long-term public health solutions.

Our unique approach incorporates clinical services with our cutting-edge research, our health professional training and community education programs. We combine expertise in clinical management with innovative research to develop new, and more effective strategies for people living with mental illness. We also place emphasis on teaching people to recognise the symptoms of poor mental health in themselves and others, as well as providing them with the right psychological tools to hold the black dog at bay.

We work directly in all parts of the community as well as guiding the development of new and improved policy. We place focus on those with specific mental health needs like young people, Indigenous communities, men, and high-risk workforces.

Our primary areas of mental health research and treatment include: depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, workplace mental health, adolescents and young people, suicide prevention, e-mental health, and positive psychology and wellbeing.

Compression Packs

I'm just a little disappointed with the size of these. I got the "largest" ones and they're still a little too small for some of my needs. But they appear to be VERY WELL put together with nice materials. I'll make them work for me, but it'll just take a little more folding. LOL For reference, I'm big and tall and I wear an XXL-Tall in most things. Maybe they'll integrate an even larger size into their offerings in the future? These would probably be perfectly sized for smaller folks that have smaller pants and shirts. Working & communicating with Amanda and the crew at FSG was a real treat!

Extremely useful to pack down all of your things in a bag so everything doesn't jump out when you are looking for items. Excellent quality.
