I don’t usually travel without a packing cube or two. They are a great way to keep organised and neat while traveling light. The cubes I have are remarkably well made and since they essentially carry much of what I need I have often thought of ditching the bag I put them in and using them alone. Or using them for day trips and leaving the heavier out bag I use at the hotel. Unfortunately they don’t have straps, making the job of carrying them inconvenient. Tom Bihn has released a Convertible Packing Cube/Backpack which seems to fit this need exactly. Like all of Tom Bihn’s products they are built to last and unlike most bags today are locally made in his Seattle, Washington factory. Worth looking into before your next trip.
