Travel broadens the mind. It’s good for the soul, and there’s a fair chance it’ll make you healthier (assuming your not spending seven days straight in a discotheque in Magaluf).
But there’s always a fly in the ointment, and that fly is packing. As a result, the internet is now awash with packing hacks, and tips for getting more in your luggage, all of which really revolve around being a bit more organised. Happily, the folks at Eagle Creek have developed the Pack-It Specter Tech Sub set to make organised packing an absolute doddle.
The concept – like most good ideas – is surprisingly simple: just three differently-sized, individual bags into which you put your kit to keep your main backpack organised. But when you look in a bit more detail, you realise why the Pack-It Specter Tech Cube Set by Eagle Creek will become an essential part of any trip you go on.
The idea of packing extra bags in you pack may initially feel counterintuitive, but these Eagle Creek Specter Tech Cubes are incredibly lightweight, with all three weighing just over 150g – roughly the weight of a couple of small apples. Suffice to say, you won’t notice the difference at all.
“…it’s the same stuff you often see used for lightweight tents and backpacks”
Their 30D Ripstop Nylon construction also means they’re incredibly durable for their weight – it’s the same stuff you often see used for lightweight tents and backpacks.
The material is both water and stain repellent, which is particularly handy if you’re using the packs to store your dirty undies at the end of a trip, and it’s bluesign approved meaning that it conforms to a number of standards when it comes to environmentally-friendly textile production.
