EatSmart TravelWise Packing Cube System 3 Piece Weekender Set {Review & Giveaway}

EatSmart logo
While my husband and I have a slew of similarities in various aspects of our life, one area in which we couldn't differ any further is packing.

He is one of those people who smartly plans ahead, putting his clothes into crisp, tidy piles days before the flight. He'll bring exactly the right number of shirts and pants, have his socks tucked into his shoes to take up less space and nearly always remembers every necessity.

I, on the other hand, don't pack until the night before because what if I want to wear those clothes? Then I lay out items by outfits in conjunction with each day and what I'll be doing, which is logical, right?

But then I'll grab a few extras things just in case, and maybe an extra sweater (what if it's cold in July?) and it couldn't hurt to have another few pairs of shoes or an extra shirt because sometimes I don't like the way that shirt looks on me...

The end result is not pretty, not to mention pretty much 0% convenient, and causes me stress when I get to my destination and have to dig through everything every day to find what I need.

Unless, that is, I use my TravelWise Packing Cube System 3 Piece Weekender Set from EatSmart.

EatSmart TravelWise Packing Cubes

A leading designer and manufacturer of high quality, user friendly digital scales, I've long been a fan of EatSmart's accurate and reliable scales and make it a point to never get on an airplane without my EatSmart Precision Voyager Luggage Scale.

So, after our past positive experiences with EatSmart, I had fairly high expectations for the TravelWise Packing Cubes even before they arrived.

EatSmart TravelWise review

This set of Small (11.5" x 6.75" x 3.75"), Medium (13.75" x 9.75" x 3.75") and Large (17.5" x 12.75" x 4") cubes is constructed of high-quality nylon fabric and is lightweight yet plenty durable to hold up to the ins and outs of travel.

Each cube features two way easy-pull zippers, so quickly compartmentalizing your items by size, category or more doesn't take more than a few seconds. All that is left to do is to stay organized on both short and long travels!

TravelWise Packing Cubes review

These really couldn't have been designed to be much easier! I love that now when I pack I can easily separate my items into each of the cubes (outfits in the largest, undergarments and pajamas in the middle size, and accessories into the smallest) and have no problem laying everything inside and zipping them up.

While I appreciate that the open mesh design of these cubes makes it easy to locate items without endless searching, I also love just how much they eliminate my typical toss-and-shove-items-to-the-side method while traveling.

All I have to do is place each of the TravelWise Packing Cubes into my suitcase and, upon arrival, I move them into the hotel room drawers in a matter of seconds.

The result is that I'm nearly unpacked... without actually unpacking. I'm able to pull out the items that I need each day without the endless digging down into the depths of my suitcase. Pajamas? In this cube! Swimsuit? Right in this cube!

Plus, just at how much room these cubes save by condensing my clothes down into each little compartment!

EatSmart TravelWise Packing Cubes review

Each time I've used these great Packing Cubes I'm pleased with the way that items don't shift around during my travels, plus the way that any items that had been ironed before packing stayed much smoother than if they had been directly in the suitcase.

packing cubes no ironing

As an added bonus, when it comes time to head home, I simply move the remaining unworn items into the smallest cube, fill the two larger ones with clothes to be washed, and pop them all back into my suitcase. When I arrive back to my house, I can then just grab the "dirty" cubes by their convenient handles, bring them right to the washing machine and I'm ready to move on with life.

Plus, due to how compact and flexible these cubes are when not in use, once they are emptied, they are able to store stacked inside each other and out of the way with ease — whether tucked into an empty suitcase, under the bed, in a drawer or more.

EatSmart TravelWise cubes

In all, I love the way that these TravelWise cubes would make a great gift for the frequent flyer, casual/weekend traveler, biker, backpacker and more who wants to simplify, straighten and streamline their packing or needs to utilize interior space to the max. They are able to eliminate the chaotic searches for particular items of clothing, keep everything organized and tidy, and really use luggage space to its fullest!

Currently available in purple and silver, the TravelWise Packing Cube System 3 Piece Weekender Set can easily make your next trip more manageable for $22.95 from Amazon.com. Find out more about this and all of EatSmart's innovative products by visiting their website and connecting with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

One lucky person will win a TravelWise Packing Cube System 3 Piece Weekender Set from EatSmart!

aperry said...

I like that they are space savers.

Urd-chan said...

I like two things about them - that they save space when packing, and that they can help keep you organized. My daughter and I make numerous weekend trips to anime conventions around the US every year, and especially since she brings various costumes to wear to the event, her suitcase can get very full and very messy by the end of the weekend, since keeping all the parts of each costume together is often hard in a standard suitcase. This way she could put one complete costume in one bag and not have to dig through her suitcase to find each piece of it. I'd love to have more than one set of these.

I like that it is made of durable fabric, I could wash it if I had to. I like the 3 sizes. It is a good idea, things won't shift and bunch up like normal packing. LOL Although I suppose if your case is the lucky one to get picked by the TSA to be looked through by hand- it will take them longer! LOL

I love the fact they these really use luggage space to the fullest. This is so important now a days and most flights charge extra for bags and when you are going on a trip for a few days, space is so important as you need to pack so much in such a little space.

Anne said...

One feature I really like about the Packing Cubes is that they come in three sizes, which allows sorting of the items that go into each cube. Great idea!

E. Diane said...

I love the idea of being able to pack enough into one of the cubes to be able to just grab that cube for an overnight stay on a road trip instead of lugging everything in. Keeps everything neater and easier to re-pack. I also love the heavy duty double zippers - must have for any kind of travel.

TravelWise packing cubes let you " unpack without unpacking". Simply take out the cubes as needed , then pop them back in your suitcase when leaving.

This is especially important to me - because for a variety of reasons - the only "vacations" we can take are short one like 3-day weekender getaways - and these would be perfect for that - as well as the occasional flights. Thanks
