Packing cube

A packing cube (or packing square, packing pouch) is a small bag designed to organize and compartmentalize clothes inside luggage, as well as to compress clothing to ensure optimum use of space.[1]

Packing cubes are small cube shaped containers for packing of clothes

Packing cubes are used by backpackers,[2] business travelers,[3][4] and holidaymakers. Packing cubes can also be used to organize items in the home such as crochet supplies, linens and winter clothing.[5]

They are meant to replace the classical heavy bags with fixed compartments that cannot be customized to accommodate the different needs of travelers.[6]
