Whoever invented these things is a genius!
Gone are the days of unpacking your bag every time you want to get something out, with the use of these cubes you can keep your bag neat and organised, what a relief for the OCD amongst us!
Carly and I travel carry-on only with small 40L packs, so maximizing space is key for us.
We travel with Osprey Farpoint/Fairview backpacks, which in our opinion, are the best you can get!
Above is all our clothes for an 8 month trip, it doesn’t look like much, but believe me there’s quite a lot (mostly Carly’s).
Below is what it looks like when packed into packing cubes.
Carly’s being blue and mine green.
They make such a difference! The cubes we bought we’re just cheap ones off eBay, I think we paid a few A$ for them.
The quality of them isn’t great, I don’t know if they’ll last the whole trip. But now I’ve had them, I don’t think I could travel without them. So if and when they break, I’ll be buying more.
There’s something so nice about having an organised backpack, especially when you’re living out of it for a long time. I know where everything is, and don’t have to unpack to get it.
If you haven’t already, invest in some packing cubes!
They’re so handy and I couldn’t imagine travelling without them!
