Skilled packers know how to fill every last empty space in a carry-on bag. While I consider myself experienced in this discipline, I still sometimes find myself bewildered at the space between the handle tubes inside wheeled luggage. Too narrow for a flip-flop, yet enough for more than a pair of socks?  It’s a puzzle that I can sometimes solve, but not consistently.


I thank goodness for the Eagle Creek Pack-It Slim Cube Set. Along with my set of Eagle Creek Pack-It Cubes that fit above the tubes, this set has helped me plan for filling all the spaces in my bag.


The cubes are made with 100% post-consumer recycled and bluesign certified durable 300D Poly fabric that’s both washable and water-resistant. It’s also treated with Protx2, an anti-microbial agent that’s formulated to combat odor-causing bacteria and keep the stink factor to a minimum.


The Pack-It Slim Cube Set consists of a Reveal Slim Cube (which measures 5 x 10 x 1.5 inches) and an Isolate Slim Cube (which measures 5 x 14.25 x 1.5 inches). An easy-view packing cube, the Reveal Cube gives you a view as to what’s inside, and the translucent Isolate Cube blocks invasive peeping.


The cubes have an angled zipper design with self-repairing zippers and climbing rope-inspired pulls for easy grip and access. They have a top-carry handle so you can tote them around easily. They’re also covered by Eagle Creek’s No Matter What Warranty.


Just because you have a packing cube to put things in doesn’t mean it’ll fit between the handle tubes. Be mindful of how you pack the cube, and it’ll serve you well.


The set comes in Sahara yellow, mossy green, AZ blue/gray, and black. The set lists for $23 on the Eagle Creek site.
