Needs to be re-written for original content

There are hundreds of packing cubes to choose from, and it can get pretty confusing if you’re new to the market. Every cube will offer different benefits at a wide range of price points, and some of them aren’t even cube-shaped! (Right?! Infuriating.)Fear not, because we’re here to help. In this guide, we’ll be breaking down each style and showing you some of our favorite cubes (all tried and tested by us, of course). We’ll also give you the low-down on budget, materials, packability, and the best ways to actually use these things.

We’ll also be going in-depth on what considerations to make before you buy. What are the best cubes for your destination? Your budget? What size packing cubes do you need? We’ve got you covered.

And we’ll end with the disclaimer that everyone is different. No, we’re not going into some rant about how you’re all amazing human beings just the way you are (even though you are). What we’re getting at is that the best packing cube for you may be the worst packing cubes for someone else. It all depends on personal preference and use-case. But by the end of this guide, you’ll have all the knowledge you’ll need to pick the right packing cube for you.

What are Packing Cubes?

Packing cubes are lightweight, zippered bags or pouches that help you stay organised when you are travelling. They make it super easy to transform your luggage from a disorganized mess into a neatly organized one that sparks joy. They help to keep clothes compressed (saving you space), as well as saving you time trying to find particular items, as everything has its place.

They are not necessarily cube shaped, coming in a variety of shapes and sizes. Essentially, they are a packing system for organizing your suitcase. They are also known as packing cells, compression cubes or travel organisers.

Do Packing Cubes Really Help?

When you pack items individually into a large backpack or suitcase, you end up with wasted space because of gaps between the contents. Even if you’re able to fill up every inch of space, once the suitcase has been tossed and turned on its travels, the items aren’t arranged how you started. Then after you’ve been living out of your suitcase for a few days it becomes a chore to find the items you need.

How do packing cubes help when travelling?

Whether you’re a frequent traveller, the casual holiday traveller or a backpacker, there are many ways that packing cubes will make your travels easier.

  • Packing cubes will save you space
  • They will make packing and unpacking easier
  • They will keep your packing sorted and organized
  • They will protect your clothes and minimize wrinkles and creases
  • They are reusable over and over again!
  • They keep the contents of your luggage private during customs and TSA inspections
