When I realized I had let someone borrow our garment bag and they still had it, we needed to find something fast for Pep to use for her Uniforms at Encampment. It needed to be big enough to hold at least two sets of ABUS and her Blues without wrinkling. I found this Bags for Less Black Garment Bag on Amazon that stated it could expand up to 5 inches.
It easily held her uniforms. It actually holds 3 pairs of ABUS and her Blues. It has handles on both ends but folding them together would have wrinkled her garments so we left it flat. However the bottom handle kept getting caught. It does have a large opening for hangers but even with four to five hangers they were still sliding out so I had to rubber band them. I would not use this garment bag if I was traveling on plane, cruise, train but its perfect for travel by car or for storing important pieces of clothing dust and moth free. It even has a peep hole and a ID slot.
I have been looking at travel cubes for a long time now but wasn’t sure I wanted to invest in them. I have spent some time on Jumpsend a found a coupon code so it would cut down on the cost. Though the were not the color I wanted I decided to go ahead and give them a try.
These Pick a Pack Travel Cubes come with four cubes in varying sizes, a shoe bag, a hanging traveling toiletry bag and three silicone bottles/tubes for shampoo, bodywash etc.
My daughter does a lot of traveling and camps where the clean clothes need to be separated from the worn (and sometimes stinky) – I picked one of our medium sized suitcases and these bright blue travel cubes will fit in nicely when full. I really like the different sizes to hold different items. The traveling cosmetic/toiletry bag is a little smaller than it looked but it will work well for travel toiletries and has room for normal items and well as cosmetics and has two zippered sizes as well. The included silicone squeeze bottles in “pretty colors” was a nice plus. They did have a small plastic smelling odor when unpacked so we are airing them out before our next trip next week. They are nice thickness so they are not cheap feeling at all and I played with the zippers very time and appear to be well made.
She really put these cubes to the test when she headed off to Summer Encampment. Each Cube was separated into ABU, PT, Blues, sheets and towels, and the bag held her dress shoes. She had to use a laundry bag at encampment for soiled items so it made it very easy to get dressed in three minutes or less. So they were definitely a hit.
We will still use the traditional summer camp (Ziploc bags for dirty laundry) but the cubes will help keep items organized. My daughter would love to see a Camo pattern.
