Expensive, difficult, slightly dangerous, not particularly effective... I'm on a roll.

Travel Bear is a fuzzy, friendly, floppy fellow. He is entirely without stuffing, but he’s got a zipper up his back.

When you pack for your next trip, fold up Travel Bear and put him in your suitcase. Upon arrival at the hotel, stuff Travel Bear with pillows, washcloths, towels, and other soft hotel-room objects. Zip up the zipper.

Sleep soundly with your familiar companion for the duration of your stay.

       Hah! Just remember the hotel will bill you for missing items, however you sneak them out. Bears with zipper compartments have been long Baked, though I haven't seen any intended to pack flat.

       Yeah, it’s baked, but I can’t seem to bring myself to vote against Bruin (the bear is just too darn good at smuggling diamonds out of India).

       [dag] They’re available in different sizes, including 9 ft tall, but you’ll have to call the front desk and ask for extra pillows.

       [DrCurry] I think AO did not have theft in mind, but was only using the hotel property as stuffing during the stay. The Bear could be even more useful if it served as a travel bag itself, so that it didn’t have to be packed into something else. If this caught on, we would see innumerable beasties of all sorts coming out on the baggage conveyer.

       ld: Having seen the illustration, I may have misunderstood AO's intentions. But bear back-packs are quite Baked.

       OK, I’ll bake the bear, but I’m not baking the idea. <link>

       They exist, pretty much.   

       When I was a kid I had a zip-up Big Bird. It was hollow in the middle and you kept your pyjama's or whatever inside it until you needed it. This is just the reverse of it - a different use for an existing product, such to say.

       Excellent!
