Packing cubes aren’t for everyone.
Previously I haven’t been a fan, but I am always experimenting with my gear load out.
In this video I compare a few different packing methods for filling out a packing cube.
There are a lot more ways to pack a cube than what I have in this video, but it gives you a good idea of the best way vs the most efficient way.
The best and the most efficient aren’t always the same.
If you have the luxury of not having to maximize every inch in your bag, than there are ways of loading out your packing cubes that make them more pleasant to use.
Of course when every inch is critical to your gear selection, the most efficient ways may be necessary.
I also only tested one packing cube.
Packing cubes come in all shapes and sizes.
The ranger role method that I am a fan of, may not be the best for the style cube I selected.
There are other cubes worth considering.
I will also point out, I am a fan of having smaller packing cubes.
Some people like to travel with one big cube that holds all of their stuff.
I find it hard to organize around.
I prefer 2-3 smaller cubes if I am going that route.
Otherwise i often pack with no packing cube at all.
Which do you prefer?
Cube or no cube?
