If you’re heading into the great outdoors for a few nights, packing cubes are an absolute essential. A camping trip is all about getting back to the bare essentials, but it also means that you’ll have to pack and bring everything you need to make the stay liveable.
Packing cubes are the ultimate portable storage and help to keep like items in one place. Having your things organised will make searching for items in the dark much easier and will help to maintain the serenity that comes with a stay with mother nature.
The medium cube is ideal for using as your wardrobe. It’s big enough to hold four pairs of jeans, so it will work well to hold three outfits: one for a warm day (shorts and tees); one for a cool day (pants and long sleeves), and clothing for sleeping. The small cube should be used for swimmers or a water-proof jacket, and extra layers.
It’s easy to misplace things when you’re camping because there are no familiar places to put things. A catch-all cube will be handy for frequently used items that you’ll want or need regardless of whether you’re out on an adventure, lazing on a picnic mat, or sleeping in your tent.
The slim medium cube is perfect for keeping necessities such as your phone, a torch or headlamp, your book, keys and any other small items that you’ll want to reach for frequently.
Never too many spares
Camping can get dirty. You’ll want to pack a few spare pairs of underwear, socks, and shirts into a slim cube. The other can be used for spare microfiber towels, tea towels or microfiber cloths which are always useful on an outdoor trip.
Pouches can be used to keep your practical bits together and are handy because you can see into them without opening. Pouches can be used to carry a multi-tool, matches or lighter, portable charger, and cords; a mini first-aid kit or toiletries kit; or can even be used to organise kitchen cutlery and utensils.
