Packing cubes are a great way to stay organized when traveling. I have been using Tortuga’s packing cubes, and here are my thoughts:
The Tortuga packing cubes are perfectly designed to fit in my Tortuga backpack. I have one large cube and two smaller cubes, and their dimensions are well designed to work with my bag without taking up all of the bag space, leaving room to put things in front of or behind them.
I can use the cubes to divide things by category and keep them organized. For example, I can use one for shirts, another for shorts/pants, and another for toiletries.
The tortuga packing cubes have a mesh top that allows me to see a glimpse inside, so I can quickly and easily see what I have put in each cube.
The Tortuga packing cubes are equipped with straps that allow me to easily grab them and/or pull them out of my bag.
It is tough to find a disadvantage to using packing cubes, but if I had to pick one I would point out that the Tortuga packing cubes are not waterproof. However, if you are looking for something waterproof to put in your bag I would recommend the Sea-to-Summit Dry Bag instead. Personally, I use the Dry Bag to store anything I want to make sure I keep dry (like electronics), and I use the packing cubes for things like clothes and toiletries.
I would highly recommend packing cubes for travelers that want to stay organized. They make packing and unpacking easier and more convenient.
