We’ve all been there: You’re packing your suitcase with clothes, pajamas and shoes only to realize you’ve run out of room before you can throw in your favorite hat and camera. Not only are you out of space, but it’s also a messy mix of essentials that could use some serious organization.
This all-too-common problem can easily be avoided with a simple travel accessory Amazon shoppers call a “miracle” and a “lifesaver.” With more than 3,000 near-perfect reviews (and a 4.8-star average), the Bagail Packing Cubes Set is a must-have for any traveler. Whether you’re going away on a weeklong cruise or a short business trip, these brilliant nylon organizers will keep you organized and can even save you annoying excess baggage fees along the way.
“Time saver for packing and unpacking. Must have if you travel,” raved a 5-star reviewer. “This has been a lifesaver in my travels! Not only is it easier to pack but it's easier to store clothes, like having an organized closet inside your suitcase.”
Another, who saved money on baggage fees, added: “I usually need 3 suitcases to go away and this time I only needed 2. Saved me $25 for another suitcase on the plane, so I already made my money back on one of the sets! They are deceiving but they really do fit a lot!”
The set includes four lightweight cubes — an extra large, large, medium and small organizer — and each features double zipper pulls, mesh panelling and a top handle for convenience. It also comes with a free laundry bag to separate dirty clothes at the end of your trip.
One reviewer noted the set’s “excellent quality”: “The nylon is smooth, the zipper high-quality nylon with strong zipper pull, and a strong webbing handle. The top is a combination of nylon and mesh allowing you to see the contents of your bag. My other cubes, an expensive brand, are only 3 inches high and these are 4 inches, allowing for more packing ability. I love the fun geometric design too. All bags fold and fit in the smallest cube for storage. I like these bags so much I have already placed an order for another set.”
Some shoppers, who never dreamed of spending money on packing cubes, admit these organizers are worth the investment.
“I used to wonder why people needed packing cubes, but am now one of those people who won't travel without them,” wrote a happy customer. “They help me to stay far more organized when I travel.”
“I was initially against this concept as I thought, ‘Why would I want to add more bulk to my suitcase?’ But man, was I wrong!” admitted another reviewer, who calls these game-changing. “Not only did these packing cubes help keep all of my clothes organized, I actually found that I had room left over in my suitcase! I have been converted. These are a great size and met all of my needs for packing, and most importantly, they saved me from constantly rummaging through my suitcase to find a particular item.”
