The Need for Packing Accessories in Airline Travel

With the ever increasing weight restrictions and fees associated with carry-on bags and checked luggage on airlines, it is even more critical to be organized and pack as efficiently as possible as you head out on your next trip.  Not only are manufacturers designing better carry-on bags and luggage to accommodate these needs, they are also providing packing accessories to make the job of getting organized easier.

Packing Cubes & Folders

Tumi, Athalon and Eagle Creek offer various packing cubes and folders that help organize, prevent wrinkling and come with folding boards to help optimize the actual folding of the clothes, reducing their size before even entering the suitcase.

Tie Cases

The Winn Leather Tie Case holding four to six ties and the Travelon Bags Tri-fold Ballistic Nylon Tie Case holding up to three ties, come with elastic security straps, webbing  and a zipper closures to keep your ties compact while minimizing wrinkles.

Toiletry Kits

Another way to minimize and stay organized is to take advantage of the many toiletry kits available with wonderful organizational features built-in, miniature bottles and containers for essentials, and smaller more efficient designs.  A few of our top selling unisex bags include: the Travelon Mini Independence Bag, the Eagle Creek Pack-It Caddy Toiletry Kit and the Briggs & Riley Baseline Compact Toiletry Kit.

Jewelry Cases

Finally even your jewelry can arrive more efficiently and unharmed with the basic Travelon Rolling Jewelry Case or the more deluxe Andrew Phillips suede-lined leather jewelry roll.

As always, the best approach is to simplify and stay organized. By using the best packing accessories available to accompany your carry-on bags and luggage you will arrive with all your essentials without breaking the bank on airline fees.
