Packing cubes - Why every traveler needs to own this!

A close friend once returned from family vacation with a hilariously horrific story. As she waited with her parents at the baggage claim carousel for their checked luggage, a lone pair of underwear rolled out on the belt — as all color immediately drained from her mother’s face.

Dignity, fellow travelers, is just one of the many reasons that using packing cubes is a good idea.

Like any Life-enriching travel accessory, once you start using packing cubes, there is no turning back. It’s incredibly satisfying to open your suitcase and know exactly where everything is.  

Even unpacking becomes easier: Packing cubes will keep your clothes compressed and folded flat or neatly rolled (however you prefer to do it), meaning no wrinkles. Once you’re settled in, you don’t have to rifle through your suitcase looking for that dinner outfit you swore you packed right on the top. You can just move the cubes directly into the drawers of your hotel’s dresser, unzip, and you’re set.

They are made durable, lightweight, and easy to wash alongside your other dirty laundry post-trip. The waterproof nylon will protect them from any spills or other scenarios in which your bags get wet. Some have mesh components, too, which is helpful when it comes to visibility and breathability.


Being the favorite travel accessory of travel bloggers around the world,
these packing cubes are a no brainer for any type of travel.


And though most are designed to fit into standard carry-on luggage, I find them especially useful for compartmentalising a backpack or weekender duffel bag. The best packing cubes and sets to keep you organised, compressed, and, most importantly, safe from public humiliation.
