Our Packing Cubes are designed to help you most efficiently utilize the space inside your travel bag and keep your clothes neat and organized.
Packing Cubes are designed to serve as additional compartments inside of your travel bag. They contain and keep tidy your shoes or rolled, folded, or bundled clothes. Made out of ultra-light top quality Mesh and Aether fabric from Japan, our Packing Cubes help you efficiently utilize the space inside your Western Flyer and keep your clothes neat and organized. They're especially useful for the Western Flyer's front and back compartments, which can unzip completely to clamshell open. Note that the front compartment of the Western Flyer features a zippered divider designed to keep two Small Packing Cubes in their respective places.
(Though there are a lot of good reasons to use Packing Cubes, we also like to make sure to mention that they’re totally optional: Tom designs all of our bags with enough built-in organization to serve most folks well.)
Here are two sample packing strategies using our Western Flyer Packing Cubes:
#1: “Just a couple of Packing Cubes”
One Small Packing Cube (underwear, socks or rolled t-shirts). Fold the rest of your clothes in the back compartment suitcase-style.
#2: “Totally Organized”
Two Small Packing Cubes (underwear, socks, rolled t-shirts, gym clothes or swimwear) in front main compartment and one Large Packing Cube (skirts, slacks, shirts, dresses, jackets) or Packing Cube Backpack in the back compartment. Note that the back compartment is also where the optional Cache laptop sleeve secures. Use a 3D Clear Organizer Cube attached via a 16” Key Strap as a 3-1-1 liquids/toiletries bag.
Of course, we offer various sizes of Packing Cubes that allow you to come up with your own packing strategy. Since both of the Western Flyer's main compartments of are of equal size, either can fit one Large Packing Cube, two Small Packing Cubes, or a Packing Cube Backpack. And if you want to dive even deeper into the world of packing organization, see our blog post Packing Cubes: Frequently Asked Questions.
Sewn in Seattle
Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

THE BIHN Guarantee
Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business for over 30 years and we stand behind what we make.
If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
