When it comes to organizing luggage, we are given so many systems and tools to choose from. One of the crowd favorites from organized people are packing cubes, but there are so many brands and companies to choose from it’s overwhelming.
Given these many options, which type of packing cubes are worth your money? Modesty aside, we think that clear packing cubes still hold the crown when it comes to luggage organization. And in this blog post, we’ll convince you why we think clear plastic packing cubes take the lead!
Why Clear Packing Cubes are the CLEAR Winner
Mesh packing cubes, fabric packing cubes, leather packing cubes… there are many kinds of packing cubes out there. What makes clear plastic packing cubes the undefeated champion when it comes to luggage organization? Clear packing cubes, specifically the EzPacking brand, were designed with the struggling-to-be-organized family in mind.
Here are the top eight reasons why you should opt for transparent packing cubes if you’re struggling to keep your suitcase organized:
1. Clear, see-through design:
Unlike other brands, EzPacking cubes have a clear, see-through design. The front and the sides of the our packing cubes are transparent. So it won’t matter which position you stack your cubes, you can find what you need in an instant. With other brands of packing cubes, you’ll have to label them or open them up just to find out what you packed in there... what a hassle!
2. Durability and long-term use:
This advantage is specific to EzPacking clear plastic cubes only. Except for the transparent vinyl front and sides, the handles, zippers and back of the cubes are made from durable fabric called cordura. It’s a stronger type of nylon fabric that resists breaks and tears. Even the military uses cordura fabric for some of their gear. Most mesh packing cubes are made from weaker nylon so they’re more prone to damage. Not to mention the actual mesh can easily rip apart after a few uses.
3. Splash resistant:
Both materials, cordura and vinyl plastic, used to create EzPacking cubes are water-resistant. This makes clear plastic packing cubes highly recommended for beach trips, water parks, and pool days. Plus, when you’re packing liquids, this type of packing cube can help lessen the risk of leaks in your suitcase. A few splashes of water can be easily wiped away from our packing cubes using a dry rag or towel. While not fully waterproof, we are comfortable calling the cubes splash-resistant.
4. Easy to clean:
All-nylon packing cubes have to be washed or laundered to fully clean them. Clear packing cubes don’t require such high maintenance. You can simply use a towel to wipe dirt from the plastic packing cubes. You can even just wash the plastic packing cube under tap water and pat dry with a towel. Air dry them and you can reuse them in no time.
5. Maintain their shape:
With other nylon-based packing cubes, shape retention is hard to achieve. This is mostly true if you intend to fully pack these packing cubes to the brim. This is yet another aspect where EzPacking plastic packing cubes dominate. They retain their shape even when packed to the brim. You can enjoy the trip knowing that no matter how bumpy the ride is, your clothes will stay intact inside the packing cubes. This firmer shape also reduces the risk of clothes wrinkling while in transit.
6. Maximize space
Because EzPacking cubes can maintain their shape when packed, you can pack them vertically in a suitcase. Rather than horizontally stacking packing cubes on top of each other (leaving valuable space to waste), EzPacking allows you to pack the cubes vertically like a mini tetris board. The photo above shows our Starter Set packs 5-7 days of clothes into a carry on suitcase with enough space for an extra pair of shoes and a laundry bag.
7. Wide range of color options:
With Ezpacking, there’s a variety of colors to choose from so you can easily designate specific colors to each member of the family. You can designate pink for your little girl, royal blue for your hubby and the classic grey for mommy. Color coordinating makes sharing a suitcase easier than ever!
8. No need to unpack / traveling drawers:
Since your items will already be organized into your cubes, when you arrive to your destination there is no need to unpack. Simple take the cubes out and place them in the hotel room drawers, closet shelving, or any other flat surface! Unzip the cubes and take out what you need for each day. Many customers also mention how they actually “live out of their suitcase” so easily because they can take out and put back the cubes they need for the day. For those who hate packing and repacking, this is as close as we can get you to heaven.
