Best Packing Cells And Packing Cubes 2020 – Get Organized!

Best Packing Cubes 2019

​This summer I went on a wonderful trip with my 15-year old daughter. We were away for two weeks. The first week we stayed in the same place, a small property in California where we took care of two horses and three dogs. We enjoyed every minute! But wait a minute, what does this wonderful experience have to do with any kind of best packing cubes? 

During the last week we stayed in three different places, and that’s when it became apparent that my suitcase organization was not, shall we say, optimized? I grew so tired of searching for clean underwear (and not getting hold of the dirty instead), socks, T-shirts and toiletries not to mention how crumpled up everything got.

The truth of it all is that I only had myself to blame. I did know about packing organizers of course, but somehow didn’t think it was something that I would actually need. I mean, how hard can it be to keep your suitcase tidy and your belongings organized? Well, as it turned out, very hard! Even the best luggage has its limits when it comes keeping tiny socks and charger cables in place.

Once home and summer gone I decided that it was time for Travel Gear Depot to take a step out of the carry-ons and suitcases. So without further ado, let us present a buying guide and our reviews of the Best Packing Cubes for 2019!

Why a leather duffel bag?

If we had to choose one single bag that would be the only one we could ever own, it would definitely be a duffel bag. A duffel can be used as an overnight bag, a weekend bag, a travel bag or even as both men's and women's gym bag.

If it stays inside the cabin luggage size restrictions of the airline in question it will be a stylish carry-on or even a personal item if it's really small. Considering it would have to last a lifetime, the given choice of material would definitely be leather. Let us show you why!

Who needs a briefcase?

A briefcase is primarly designed for being carried short distances, for example between your car or commuter bus or train and the office. Or perhaps as your carry on personal item when flying, the piece of luggage that fits under the seat in front of you. But you may be surprised to find that some of them also has the ability to convert to a backpack!
