I have never really been any good at packing. When it comes to organising my luggage I have always folded and rolled and hoped for the best, squeezing clothes into gaps to try and save the most space. Of course this never really works and when I arrive at my destination I have to empty everything out into a pile to try and sort it out.
On my last trip to Copenhagen in December last year, I decided I would be more organised and decided I would get myself some packing cubes to help me keep my clothes in check. I purchased the Hopsooken 5pc Packing Cubes Set in purple from Amazon.
Hopsooken specialises in travel accessories including hiking backpacks, casual backpacks, money belt, travel bags, outdoor bags, school backpacks, rucksacks, toiletry bags, packing cubes, gym duffel bags, neck wallet and more. They focus on quality and fashionable designs which have made their products popular all over the world especially North America, Europe, and Japan.
The packing cube set is made up of 4 packing cubes in different sizes: 1 extra large (17.8 x 13.1 x 5.3 inches), 2 large (16.15 x 11.4 x 4.3 inches and 1 medium cube (13.05 x 9.9 x 3.15 inches). It also includes a handy laundry bag (13.35 x 10.24 inches) which doubles as a container for all the cubes when you want to put them away after your trip.
Each packing cube has a double zipper making opening and closing quick and easy. They have soft mesh panel tops for ventilation which doubles as a handy window so you can see which clothes are in which cubes. The cubes also have a webbing handle so it’s easy to pick them up and move them around which is a bonus. I like the little images of clothing on the cubes which gives you a good guide as to where to pack items making it easier to find them at your destination.
I found that the cubes are made from good quality fabric with interior seams to make them more durable and I was surprised at just how much I could fit in each cube! When I arrived in Copenhagen there was no need to tip out all my belongings I simply opened my case and selected what I wanted each day from the cubes. They would easily fit into drawers if you wanted to unpack properly.
The laundry bag really came in handy as rather than just jamming my worn clothes back into the case I was able to keep them separate from my clean clothes and packed away neatly.
I am happy to award the Hopsooken 5pc Packing Cubes Set 5 out of 5 stars for keeping me (and my clothes) tidy and organised whilst away from home and would recommend them to anyone looking to get their luggage into order.
