We’ve been singing the praises of the packing cube since the early days of the Strategist.com: “It’s equal parts separation and stuffing mechanism — it not only compartmentalizes your luggage but also helps you cram whatever’s inside it into an incredibly small, predetermined place, too. It’s installing brilliant, draconian order and organization where there was once only chaos,” writer Foster Kamer raved.
This particular four-piece set from Amazon Basics has a ton of excellent reviews, so many in fact, that it made into our People’s Choice guide to the best packing cubes. Said one happy reviewer: “I’ve owned the ‘name brand’ versions of these, and the AmazonBasics versions work just as well … I use the largest size for my clothes, the medium size for my kids clothes, the small for their socks/underwear, and the long for my socks/underwear … our best purchases for travel, hands down.”
Right now, the set (which comes in a rainbow of colors) is even cheaper than usual as part of an Amazon Basics luggage and travel sale.
