Packing cubes

One of the more difficult tasks to manage when living out of a suitcase or bag is finding the clothes you need in a timely manner. Often, you’ll pull out half your belongings just to find the right pair of shorts. But with these handy little packages, you’ll always have instant access to what you want to wear, without throwing your clothes across the hotel room floor.

Ultralight Packing Cubes come in sets of five, so you can separate your clothes into daily outfits or use one for pants, one for shirts, one for underwear, and so on. And as the name suggests, they weigh very little and so they won’t tip the scales on your baggage allowance.

Leak-proof bottles

No one likes opening their toiletries bag to find the contents covered in sticky hair gel or slippery hand cream. That’s where these leak-proof squeezable silicone bottles will be your best travel buddy. They’re clear and, to keep airport security happy, they’re the approved size and the labels make what’s inside easily identifiable.
