The Best Packing Cubes on Amazon, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about the best the travel accessories according to frequent travelers and the best packing cubes for your rolling carry-on, we dove back in to find the best-reviewed packing cubes and luggage organizers on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

“This is just what I needed to go on a quick trip out the country; me and my girlfriend shared one suitcase. I got everything in my cube and didn’t take up all of the suitcase. This is a must have for every family. Glad I stumbled upon it looking for luggage. Material was a little thin but it served its purpose for the low, low price.”

“Proof is in the pictures: A full-length, wool trench coat and scarf compressed down to the size of a legal sheet of paper. Hard as a brick and very difficult to zipper, but it worked. I travel between cold and warm climates, and there is nothing worse than lugging a wool coat all around California because my latter week appointments are in NYC or Boston. I can now stash the whole coat in my computer bag. On average, I would say this compresses clothing to half size. … I was able to get five tees, undies, and socks along with three dress shirts into my overnight now. I don’t think it will be life-changing but should allow me to avoid the gate-check on the small commuter jets.”
