Quality Made, Makes Packing/Unpacking Easier
on August 24, 2013
I hate packing, even though I do it often. It's not uncommon for me to be home for less than a day between trips, so unpacking/packing can be hurried experience. About a year ago, on the recommendation of a friend, I purchased a set of these eBags Packing Cubes (in orange so they're easy to see in the closet). These serve several purposes:
* I use the small bag for carrying a swimsuit/athletic shirt so I can stay active in the hotel pool/spa
* I use the medium bag for organizing socks and underwear rather than having them loose in my bag
* I use the large bag for pants and shirts to help prevent wrinkles
It worked so well for me that I ended up buying a set for my wife as well. Since we try to travel with carry-on luggage only when we travel she's put hers to good use, too. I'm actually considering a second set so that I can take one set and come home and just swap sets to reduce the time it takes to re-pack. That also means when I do laundry I can simply re-pack straight out of the dryer into cubes. The eBags set isn't the cheapest set on the market but after reading several reviews I believed that the quality was likely better than some of the cheap knock-offs. After a year with more than 150 flight segments and 150 hotel nights they're still in great shape with fully functional zippers (the thing I was most worried about) - no quality problems whatsoever. For something that's made my travel life easier and has proven to be dependable, I consider them a fantastic purchase.
If you're looking for something to make packing and unpacking easier, I recommend these cubes.
