It seems whenever I pack to go anywhere, I start out very organized and then after having to find something in my suitcase, or backpack, everything is a mess. I’ve tried using small sacks, but then everything gets squished and wrinkled, and I can’t tell what is in each sack. Large plastic bags are clear and keep things separated, but don’t last long. I’m going to see how the eBags Packing Cubes work. The 3 piece set that I received came with a small, medium and large cube.
There are two zipper pulls, allowing me to open and close the cube easily. The nylon fabric is smooth, and the seams are all well stitched, some with double stitching. The mesh on the top allows me to see what is inside, for those times when I forget which cube I used for which items.
The smallest cube easily held 6 pairs of heavyweight hiking socks, with room to spare. I was surprised at how roomy it is. I think because of the soft sides and top, it expands more than I expected. I plan on using the bags on a upcoming camping trip to keep my clothes organized within my pack. I’m also going to try them out on a vacation, where I’ll be using a rolling suitcase. Hopefully, on that trip, they will help keep the ironing down that I have to do. Vacations and ironing don’t go together too well.
