I am an airline pilot of 12 years and made a reassement of my travel gear. I am constantly on the road packing and unpacking in the apartment 'crashpad', the hotel and at home. It was always a blow up when I opened up my 22inch roll aboard. If I wanted one item it seemed like I had to dig or unpack. Packing involved mental scrabble to figure out what to throw in for each trip and where. Unpacking involved the dreaded smell test for what was dirty and what was clean - not cool.

It all changed after trying the Eagle Creek Pack-It cubes. All the dimensions of the cubes fit a standard 22inch roll aboard. I chose the 2 Sided cubes for the added utility of clean and dirty, or wet and dry - very cool. The beauty of cubes is I don't really pack and unpack every time. It's fantastic just pulling out the cube for underwear and sock without blowing up the suitcase in the middle of the hotel room. No more digging for a wrinkled dress shirt. I can shift from my tropical cubes to my winter layover cubes in a snap and not worry if I left something behind. For minimal bulk I now have an organized suitcase, nice!

I like Eagle Creek for their quality and would recommend them to any road/sky warrior - choose your color.

I was skeptical of the Eagle Creek Pack-It stuff when I first saw it at REI...I already have a suitcase, so why would I want to buy more compartments to put into it? But I took a chance and I got a Pack-It Folder and the Pack-It Half Cube. This Half Cube is great for organizing my socks or underwear and can fit quite a lot given its size. Although you can roll up t-shirts and put them in here, I tend to use my Folder for pants, shorts, and shirts. I am a biologist, so when I go out of town I'm typically packing both hiking socks for work and regular socks for after work. I can easily fit 4-5 pairs of hiking socks, including some which are fairly thick, and 2-3 pairs of regular socks into this little Half Cube. I can easily fit 6 rolled up pairs of boxer shorts in a single line within the Half Cube; if you really wanted to you could probably double that by stacking them. Because the entire thing is soft, it is also fairly flexible and can accommodate more than you would expect. It zips up easily and takes up about half the space in the socks/underwear compartment in my standard carry-on size suitcase. It keeps things a little more organized than they used to be and helps me keep clean and dirty separated easier. If you want to spend extra you could get the two-sided cube and then really keep clean and dirty apart from each other, but if you don't want to spend much, this is a good deal. Check out my pictures to see the Pack-It Half Cube in action.

I'm an organization freak - especially when traveling. I have an assortment of these traveling cubes - and this half-size gets used the most. They're great for organization. Be aware these are not that big. They're great for boxers/socks - short trip for sure - they don't hold much.

Primarily, I use this size for technology stuff: cables, chargers, converters, spare batteries - that kind of stuff. This size cube is very handy for electronics. I keep one in my backpack all the time too - it keeps all my power cables and miscellaneous tech junk all in one spot. And, I've had these for years - they hold up well and still look brand new.

I love the entire Eagle Creek Pack-It system, and I highly recommend you jump on board too if you enjoy having organization in your travels or adventures. These are perfect for hats, underwear, pillowcases, and more. These are probably going to be too small for t-shirts and undershirts unless you really compress them. I'd recommend the full-size Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Cube for shirts or the Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Double Cube for two compartments back-to-back.

Overall, this is a staple for me keeping my mind organized. I even use them when at home while not traveling just to keep everything all zipped up and tucked away. They fit perfectly into drawers.

These and the whole Eagle Creek Pack-It system in general are a must-have for obsessive compulsive travelers or those of us who are averse to clothing clutter.

I love packing cubes!!! They make packing and unpacking so much easier. And they're even more useful when trying to find something during travel. Eagle Creek packing cubes are particularly good quality. For some things, I prefer the Rick Steves Packing Cubes that are made with netting on all sides. Eagle Creek cubes simply have netting on one side. This makes them a bit sturdier and therefore more useful for some things. As other reviewers mentioned, undergarments are perfect in this half-cube size. It's also good for toiletries, electronics, snacks, cleaning supplies, etc.

But I've got a special use for the Red Half-Cube... While the Red Quarter-Cube carries my daughter's asthma spacer and inhalers in a perfectly-sized, easy to find container, the Red Half-Cube carries all our other meds and first aid supplies. It's important to be able to find those things when you need them! And a bright red cube makes it easy as can be...

Wouldn't go anywhere without them!

Before purchasing an Eagle Creek suitcase I never would have though something like the Pack-It system would make such a difference in traveling. Well after living out of my suitcase for 10 days in Turkey I can say this makes ALL the difference. It's easy enough to pack things neatly when you're leaving home but this keeps things effortlessly organized throughout the trip and prevents the headache of sorting through the inevitable jumbled wads of wrinkled clothing that I accumulate. I highly recommend it any travelers.

I bought one red and one blue for each of my children. I keep a spare set of clothes (pants, shirt, socks, undies for the oldest and a diaper for the youngest.) It fits everything I need for the spare set (20month old and 4 year old) and its' color coded for each boy. I had been using other bags and zip locks but this is the best by far. I can toss them in a beach bag, backpack or the car.

They are sturdy and well made.

I used this several times thus far for travel--in a rollaboard, in a duffel, and once in a backpack. In my backpack (a Kelty Redwing), it fit perfectly toward the bottom of the bag and helped me organize my stuff. These cubes are so helpful for less structured bags like a backpack or duffel. I am sort of obsessed wtih organizing my gear and clothing when traveling...I hate nothing more than having an exploding pile of stuff shoot out at me when I open my suitcase. I used this both for t-shirts rolled up and for other doo dads that can easily fall around. I'm buying another to take with me on my next trip. The only thing I'll point out, in case it is an issue for you, is that the sides are not structured--they are soft sided. So, it will not stand up by itself. This is really only an issue if you want extra protection for the contents. I'd look for another solution for that. For soft articles, the soft sides are a benefit, because you can overstuff it a bit and compress the contents. The best thing about these is that they keep you organized once at your destination. I tend to unpack when I'm at a hotel, despite the length of the trip. Recently, though, I stayed in a hotel for 2 weeks, and this made it so easy for me to organize the dresser drawers. Looking forward to packing with it tonight!

I did a lot of research on small bags and organizers that I could use to discretely carry gym clothes, shoes (clean/dirty), and toiletries in my work bag. Lugging a gym bag everywhere in addition to a briefcase made every day feel like a camping trip in Manhattan.

The half-cube size is perfect for me to pack a set of gym clothes or a fresh set of work clothes. I keep pre-packed cubes on hand so I can just throw the right ones in my bag on my way out the door. Or, I can keep extra clothes in a desk drawer at the office without looking messy. It has really simplified my morning routine and I always have the right things in my bag - no more, no less.

I look forward to using these for travel, and high-adventure trips more dumping out my bag to find the right item or spending an hour packing and re-packing in the hotel room. I also found a lightweight eagle creek "day pack" backpack that matches these cubes...PERFECT for a day hiking trip. Since all of the items fit/work together, you can use them for multi-purpose which makes this line by FAR the most economical out there. I will be purchasing more items from this line

I love to use packing cubes to make traveling easier. This one is a perfect size to put a t-shirt, a couple of undergarments and perhaps a pair of pajama pants. Then I stick it in my carry-on bag - if something were to happen to my suitcase, I would be able to get by for a day or two. The cube is well made, and I expect it will last me quite a while.

I recommend getting several cubes this size, preferably in different colors. I like to keep things sorted in my suitcase so packing and unpacking is easier - especially when going from city to city. I like to use one for undergarments, one for pajamas, one for t-shirts, and another for all of those loose miscellaneous items.
