~I received an Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter Starter Set for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
I just love to travel whether it be to Europe or to places a lot closer to home. There is just something magical about discovering a new place or re-visiting a place that brings back great memories. By far the most stressful thing about traveling would be the dreaded packing. It was bad enough when I just had to pack for myself but now with a husband and 2 kids I feel like I spend far too much time packing and organizing our suitcases even when it is a small weekend getaway and when we finally get to where we are going it is all wrinkled. I have recently discovered that Eagle Creek‘s pack-it system helps keep everyone’s stuff organized, neat and separate and keeps my sanity in tact when packing up the family for our trips. Their newly redesigned Pack-It Originals and the ever popular Specter also help you get more stuff into less space, so go ahead and take extra outfits, just in case the baby spits up on you or junior gets his outfit all muddy.
Check out the video so you can get a better understanding of not only the point of the cubes but also how to use them properly.
They are super thin but also super durable. Here is my husband’s stuff packed up for a weekend work trip all in one duffel bag. All three parts of the set fit nicely inside his bag. He is also 6’9″ and his clothes are not small but everything still in there.
If he had not been using these cubes I can guarantee his clothes would have arrived at his hotel all wrinkled. He told me that everything was nice and neat when he took them out of the bag.
I also put this 3 piece set into a standard size carry-on suitcase so you can see that it easily fit inside the bag.
They sell all kinds of luggage, travel bags and accessories that you need to make packing a breeze. From shoe bags and toiletry kits to tablet sleeves they have a way to help make the whole process as easy as it can be. I especially like the idea of buying each family member a different color that way when you are packing it helps keep things better organized, especially when packing multiple family members in one bag. Then when you get to your location you know where everything is in your bags. This pack-it set has changed the way I view the packing process altogether. I use the big part to fold us shirts nice and neat and with the smaller cubes I roll up shirts and shorts into it. I just can’t believe how much more I can pack than just folding up stuff the old way. I can’t wait for summer and some family trips I hope to take!
