There’s a chance most of us are more likely to over pack than under pack. If you’re anything like the rest of the population, you’ll pack your suitcase until it’s overflowing with everyday essentials and clothes you’ve not worn in years (just in case you need that dress you bought three years ago for a friend’s wedding).
Starting at $30 for a pack of four, these cubes make it easy to organize your belongings according to type or occasion, and prevent leaks or damage happening to the other items in your suitcase.
With 4.7 stars out of 5 and more than 3,400 reviews, these packing cubes are a must for frequent travellers.
“I have used these cubes on two trips and intend to again. These are absolutely fantastic for keeping your suitcase tidy and manageable while also being able to store a surprising amount of clothes inside. These four bags neatly fit inside a medium-sized suitcase while still allowing a little extra space where you can squeeze in a few extras if need be. You won’t regret this purchase,” reads one review.
“I ordered these packing cubes to go on a multi-centre holiday as I needed to be able to pack easily between destinations. They are well made, easy to use, and keep clothes organized and crease free, not only in the suitcase but also when unpacking at the hotels. Unpacking with the cubes was easy as I just had to put the cubes straight into the hotel drawers,” adds another. “I fully recommend them.”
Promising to keep clothes crease-free and make packing easier, these cubes are reviewed as being almost perfect – but some customers did have recommendations on how to improve them.
“One thing I wish the manufacturers would include is a method to label the cubes - this is how I kept organized... I can't remember which clothes are in which cube based on colour only. I used painters tape and wrote a list of what was in each cube,” said one customer.
“There is a web handle on each bag but it should have been on the opposite side so that bag can be hung up and contents do not fall out when partially unzipped. Each bag has a mesh front so you can see what is inside. Would be nice if there was a slot to put in a label to identify contents since bags all look the same,” adds another.
Reviewers also suggest breaking down your days into cubes — for example, pack all your items for a first day lounge at the beach in a smaller cube, and a fourth day excursion in a larger one.
