Recognizable? Then these handy storage bags make your traveling life just that little bit easier and more organized.
What are packing cubes?
You can organize your travel bag by storing your things in, for example, garbage bags or plastic bags. This is certainly the cheapest option, but you will see that garbage bags are often a bit too large, start to tear along the way and also start to smell after a while. As a result, you eventually have the idea that you are living out of your suitcase.
The best is to choose for storage bags with a mesh front. This gives your clothing some fresh air and it does not smell too quickly. Have your packing cubes become dirty or do you want to freshen them up in the meantime? Then you can easily clean them in a hand wash or in the washing machine (if they are suitable for this).
Suitcase organizers come in different colors and sizes. By using multiple formats you can easily sort your clothes. For example, use the smallest size for underwear or socks and the larger size for t-shirts and shorts.
Once on the road you will find what you need easily and quickly, without having to unpack your entire bag.
There are a number of brands of packing cubes on the market, of which Eagle Creek and Osprey are perhaps the best known, but certainly not the cheapest. Various brands are:
