    Advice on packing cubes/folders

    In another thread (possibly the Aeronaut discussion?) there was a mention of packing aids. I've had a few packing folders from Eagle Creek, though they seem to have gone mysteriously awol. Before I just go out and get more of them, I'd like to poll the assembled group: What have you used for packing cubes/folders? Did you like them? Would you recommend something different? Thanks!

    I've been using the Eagle Creek Packing Cubes and Packing Folders for several years now and haven't found anything I've liked better. I have a variety of sizes that fit almost any packing situation. If anyone comes up with a better solution, I'm game to try it, but so far, no one has...

    Concur on Eagle Creek

    I agree with Sacharissa: have used multiple sized Eagle Creek packing cubes, folders, compression bags, and other than retrieving them when my wife steals them, I have had no problems. They're especially useful now that they have more colors, because we separate each family member's clothes and put them in different color cubes, etc. That way we can spread them across multiple suitcases so no one is completely out of luck if a bag gets lost (not that that ever happens :-0)

    Right after I shelled out for some new Eagle Creek packing cubes to go with my Aeronaut. Sigh.

    Thanks, Darcy. I have a three day trip to Ithaca, NY in mid June, so sometime in May should be good enough.
