The bags' nylon composition is particularly soft, smooth, and pleasant to the touch.

The Ripstop mesh polyester fabric excels at resisting wear and tear, making these cubes lightweight and durable. 

CONS

The light mesh polyester inserts are easily soiled. 

OUR VERDICT

The Gonex GX018A brings you the best packing cubes on this list. You'll be able to organize and travel with style and efficiency. The slim cube's great for pants and dresses. The bags are available in many different color schemes too.

The two plastic bags smell pretty bad initially.

Gonex GX018A

Pack Efficiently

Gonex GX018A packing cubes are stylish and elegant but, at the same time, exceedingly practical.

As far as we're concerned, the elegant part requires no elaboration. The "exceedingly practical" part, on the other hand, has enough to unfold.

First and foremost, the bags' nylon composition is particularly soft, smooth, and pleasant to the touch. The material's pretty expandable (stretchy) but also strong, with solid tearing-resistance, waterproof, and dirt-bearing performance.

At the same time, the Ripstop mesh polyester fabric excels at resisting wear and tear, making these compression cubes as lightweight and durable as they come.

Featuring mesh-top panels, these bags are designed to be breathable, offering not only vital ventilation but the ability to easily peak into the interior and see whether anything's missing. Plus, the soft mesh won't damage delicate fabrics, meaning you'll be able to arrive in style without worrying about your clothes.

Apart from that, the webbing handles make each individual bag especially easy and comfortable to carry.

To sum up, the Gonex GX018A brings you the best packing cubes on this list. You'll be able to organize and travel with style and efficiency. The bags are available in many different color schemes too.

Moreover, these mesh inserts enable easy identification, so you won't have to waste your time digging around trying to find the right items. These mesh tops also keep things nice and breathy for the fabrics inside.

The package supplies you with three medium-sized cubes that measure 13.75" x 9.75" x 3". In other words, you won't be able to separate different items as much as you'd probably want to here. At the same time, people seldom use these small bags anyway.

Shacke 4sp-00011

X-Esque Web Stitching

The Shacke 4sp-00011 is an inexpensive package first and foremost. Considering the ~$25 price tag, what you receive in return is a pretty sweet deal.

Namely, what you receive are these five bags, including (and very much limited to) the 17.5" x 12.75" x 4" extra-large bag, 13.75" x 12.75" x 4" large bag, 13.75" x 9.75" x 4" medium bag, 11" x 6.75" x 4" small bag, and 20" x 15" laundry bag.

Now, the laundry bag is pretty small but the 4-inch deep bags will let you fit as many clothes as you want.

The nylon fabric that these bags are made from is pretty resistant to wear and tear. Meanwhile, these mesh inserts make sure the items inside are able to breathe.

The X-like web stitching creates this strong reinforced lid that holds the clothes, preventing the fabrics from folding in the middle so you don't have to worry about them crumpling up.

At the same time, the YKK™ double zippers with corded pulls pretty much guarantee that the bags will never accidentally open.

Long story short, the Shacke 4sp-00011 will let you pack as efficiently as any neat freak without spending too much time and money to do so. You won't have to worry about your clothes' condition when you arrive. You'll be able to organize to your heart's content.

Eagle Creek EC-41186002

Toughest Packing Jobs

The Eagle Creek EC-41186002 looks pretty fragile even though these bags are anything but.

The Ripstop Silnylon™ fabric makes these bags lightweight yet pretty much immune to wear and tear. You'll be able to organize without adding extra weight, all while knowing that the cubes will survive the toughest packing jobs.

Of course, considering the not necessarily modest price tag, you aren't getting the best deal here as far as the price-performance ratio is concerned (on paper, at least). The company sends you two bags for ~35 bucks. The medium bag measures 14" x 10" x 3", while the smaller bag adds up to 10" x 7" x 3". Again, on paper, this is not even remotely the best deal.

But these bags are different. Besides the ultralight but extremely durable construction that we've mentioned above, these bags are also water-resistant, so you can bring them pretty much anywhere you go without worrying about the weather conditions. Plus, you can use these compressible cubes to store and transport toiletries without separating them into different cases.

Also, the translucent fabric lets you view the contents without having to unpack everything.

In other words, the people behind the Eagle Creek EC-41186002 bank entirely on quality rather than quantity. They don't send you very many bags, but the bags that arrive will serve you for years to come and will prove especially practical along the way.

YAMIU PCB-06

Don't Have to Splurge

The YAMIU PCB-06 Packing Cubes are not the most high-quality nor the most practical bags within this lineup. We do not hold that against the product though. Keeping the ~$15 price tag in mind, the seven-piece package is a steal.

The package includes one large bag (17.5" x 12.5" x 4"), one medium bag (13.5" x 9" x 4"), two small bags (11" x 7.5" x 4"), one shoe bag (9" x 5" x 17"), one medium clear bag (9.5" x 3" x 8"), and one small clear bag (7" x 2.5" x 5.5").

The shoe bag is water-resistant, so you won't even have to clean the shoes when you drop them into the bag.

The two clear bags are transparent, perfect for toiletries and other smaller items like that. The bigger clear bag is also great for dirty/mid-wet clothing items. The only issue with these transparent plastics bags is that cheap plastic smell that follows them initially. As it is usually the case though, the smell goes away pretty quickly.

The main nylon bags are neither too sturdy nor too fragile. The stitching's alright and the double zippers will be sure to keep the belongings inside.

All things considered, YAMIU PCB-06 Packing Cubes are an easy choice to make: if you want to organize and pack everything as neatly as possible but do not want to spend too much money on this pursuit, this is the set for you.

What Are Packing Cubes?

Packing light is overrated. We can get behind the whole minimalism fad but there's nothing wrong with bringing as many items as possible since you never know what's going to end up useful or useless.

As far as we're concerned, packing neatly is a much more noble pursuit. It can be really difficult to pack everything as neatly and efficiently as possible when you're bringing so many different things with you.

Of course, that is the case when you don't have packing cubes. With these bags, you'll have no issues separating, organizing, and packing every little item as efficiently as you want. Using these organizers for travel storage, you'll be able to keep things nice and neat.

More often than not, these bags are extremely versatile. They seldom come without built-in handles, meaning that you can use them as standalone luggage bags too. There's always enough size difference between these bags, so you can separate clothes from smaller items.

These packing cubes will work wonders together with these hard case luggage sets and/or Star Wars luggage sets. You'll be able to travel with efficiency and style.
