Whether you are on assignment or traveling for the holidays, packing and unpacking can be a hassle. I am sure many of the readers, here can recall how many deployments it took to learn how to pack your sea-bag, deployment kit, or foot locker correctly and efficiently? I can’t tell you how many times after fifteen years that I still had stuff I needed, way at the bottom of the bag. I swore to myself that as soon as I left the Marine Corps and could choose my own luggage and packing system, I would find the easiest and most organized way. There are many cube systems out there, but what I love about the Eagle Creek Pack-IT system is that there are two sides, one for clean items and the other for dirty or damp items. If you are traveling like me, to places where you truly get “ripe” just from the location, you will want to have a two-sided system that will “lock in the funk.”

Eagle Creek Pack-IT System: Organize your movement

The Pack-It System simply fuses form and function to create highly organized packing solutions. Each item from the Eagle Creek packing system tackles issues from organization challenges and space maximization, to moisture and odor control, to wrinkle resistance and compartmentalization. They’ve made it easy to find what you need, when you need it, and eliminate the clutter. Can I get an AMEN? The Pack-IT Original Clean Dirty cubes are the right choice so you don’t put on filthy skivvies when you really need a fresh pair. You can identify it by the two zippers; one side is mesh for breathability the other is lined with a water repellant LinkSeal™ mesh. If you don’t care about clean skivvies because you are a commando, you can obviously use both sides for more organization and storage. The Garment folder is a must if you need to bring shirts and pants that you want to minimize the wrinkles. The Pack-It Original Folder Medium is built with innovative Compress Wings that allow you to simply fold, stack and secure, to keep shirts and slacks looking sharp. Furthermore, note the medium folder fits inside most carry-ons for those of us who don’t check luggage.
