Review – eBags Packing Cubes

Free Shipping at eBags

Well guys, I’m officially off to South America two weeks from tomorrow! There’s still lots of preparation to get sorted, but one thing I am on top of is my packing! Another travel blogger had recommend eBags packing cubes to me, so I decided to order a few items to see how eBags could help me pack for my trip.

eBags Packing Cubes 3 Piece Set

I have to admit, I was originally sceptical about how helpful a simple set of packing cubes could be. But, on testing out the eBags Packing Cubes 3 Piece Set this week, I’m fully converted! When I backpacked before in Malaysia, eBags Packing Cubes one of my biggest annoyances was having to root through (and practically climb into) my entire backpack just to reach my underwear which had, inevitably, tunnelled itself to the very bottom of my pack. For me, this is the huge draw of using packing cubes; I can simply put all my underwear in one cube and that way I’ll know exactly where it is, at all times.

The 3 piece set comes in assorted sizes, with a small, medium and large cube, meaning that you can use the smallest for undies and the largest for your bulky items, such as jumpers or blankets. But it’s not just clothes, either, you could use the cubes for plugs and adaptors, toiletries, medicines, dirty laundry, shoes, or any other smaller items you don’t want loose in your bag. The packing cubes are made from a durable nylon which is thin and very lightweight, plus the mesh top means you can see exactly what’s inside without needing to open it. With self-repairing coil zips, and seams that are reinforced with fabric binding, the eBags cubes feel really sturdy and they’re definitely very travel-proof, perfect for long term backpacking trips! The 3 piece set is just £17.99 from Amazon, and there are plenty of colours to choose from, so click the link to check out the range!

So, what can they fit?

  • Small cube dimensions: 11″ x 6.75″ x 3″. This size is perfect for undies: I managed to squeeze in twelve pairs of pants and twelve pairs of socks (balled).
  • Medium cube dimensions: 13.75″ x 9.75″ x 3″. The medium cube is deceptively small looking, but actually fits an awful lot. I got in ten t-shirts, a pair of jeans and one pair of cotton trousers. With clever packing, you can probably get at least a week’s worth of clothes into one of these cubes!
  • Large cube dimensions: 17.5″ x 12.75″ x 3.25″. Although it’s pretty big, the largest cube still fits standing up inside my backpack, and it’s great for particularly bulky items. Or you could use it to store all your clothes. I got in a whole lot of stuff into the big cube: 2 pairs of jeans, 1 fleece jumper, 1 woolly jumper, 2 pairs of leggings, 2 pairs of shorts, one skirt and two t-shirts.

You can also buy sets of three in fixed sizes – so three small cubes, for example – and sets of three slim cubes which look particularly perfect for smaller backpacks; you could easily slot three into your backpack long-ways. I really like the assorted sizes, though, since they allow me to separate my stuff based on the size and bulk of the items, and they stack pretty neatly into my backpack with plenty of space around them for the rest of my stuff. In fact, they function quite nicely as ‘dividers’ inside my backpack, too!

The eBags Packing Cubes are brilliant for organising your backpack or suitcase – meaning that you can quickly and easily find exactly what you need without 20120509_packing-cubes-varietyhaving to rummage. It’s almost like having a portable set of drawers with you on the road! The fab range of different colours means that you can colour-code, too, particularly great if there’s more than one of you sharing a suitcase or backpack. Another perk is that the cubes keep your clothes together, neatly folded or rolled, which means no crushing, wrinkling or tearing inside your backpack.

Basically, the packing cubes from eBags really will be your best friend on the road – be it a long term trip or a weekend break – especially if you value organisation! If I’ve convinced you about the benefits of Packing Cubes, click here to buy them from Amazon now, you won’t regret it!

  2. Great review, thanks. I have been searching for eBags on line but can only find them on their own site in the USA and they told me they don’t ship to the UK. Can I ask where you bought yours from? Thanks.

  3. Great review! I’m desperate for some of these packing cubes! Can I ask where you bought yours from? eBags tell me that they do not have a UK supplier and do not ship to the UK. Amazon has a few but a very limited selection. Thanks!
