Being a couple of months into my travels around Southeast Asia, I was super excited to start using the reputable Packing Cubes for the very first time.
My husband met up with me in Vietnam for a two week holiday and kindly brought them over for me and I have to say – these have made my life so much easier!
From the moment I opened my package, I was highly impressed. The cubes are very lightweight and can pack up very neat and small.
I picked my favourite colour (black) which comes with a striking blue lining design.
This set of six cubes comes in three different sizes: small, medium and large and you get two of each. They have a mesh lining on top and the material and zippers are excellent quality and feel very durable.
Let me start by showing you just how unorganised my suitcase was before I started using the packing cubes. Basically I used my own version of cubes in the form of multiple plastic bags… it was a bit of a mess to be honest!
As I still had 8 weeks to go on my travels I actually offloaded a lot of stuff I wasn’t using to my husband to take back home for me so I could travel extra light, and I also gave him two packing cubes to use himself. I thought four was the perfect amount for me to use personally.
I use the large packing cube for my clothing that I don’t wear every day. This includes my jeans and sweatshirt (mostly for plane travel) and jean shorts and skirt, cardigan etc.
I like to keep the rest of my clothing that I do wear daily such as t-shirts and singlets easily accessible so I prefer to keep them loose in my suitcase.
I use the medium packing cube as my sort of ‘medical and extra toiletries kit’.
In here I keep my spare toiletries and medication, washing powder, tissues etc. and I really appreciate how much more organised these products are, now I know exactly where to find them all!
For the two small packing cubes, one I use as my ‘electronics bag’. In there I keep my various chargers, spare batteries and memory cards, my Go Pro and accessories and also my spare sunglasses.
The second one is my ‘random stuff’ bag. In there I keep little presents and knickknacks I’ve purchased such as key rings and post cards and any receipts and papers I wish to keep.
I only have one other large plastic bag that I keep my shoes in and two of my own toiletry bags that I constantly take in and out of my suitcase – one for my makeup and one for my everyday care such as shampoo and conditioner, face wash, toothbrush, soap etc. and I feel this works really well for me.
I am so pleased with how organised I now am and I actually feel like more of a proper traveller because of it!
I have been using the Bagail Packing Cubes for over three weeks now and I can’t believe they hadn’t been in my life earlier! They have become a new travel essential for me and I know I will get so much use out of them for every single trip I go on.
It has minimised the amount of plastic bags I use, uses up a lot less space and makes finding things a heck of a lot easier. The different sizes and mesh front means I no longer have to hunt for items and it also helps clothing to breath and be odour-free.
I love the style, the quality and how they make packing such a breeze. My suitcase is so neat and tidy now and 1000 times more organised. This product would suit every type of traveller and I highly recommend it to all.
This Bagail Set has six Packing Cubes – 2 Large (17.5″ x 13.7″ x 4″) 2 Medium (13.7″ x 9.8″ x 4″) and 2 Slim (13.7″x5″x4″). They come in a choice of seven colours – as well as Black, it comes in Blue, Dark Blue, Fuchsia, Grey, Burgundy and Purple. These can be easily purchased on Amazon or through their website.
