Congratulations to Karen Propes, winner of the Eagle Creek Organizers!

Living out of a suitcase is a hassle. No one likes to travel that way. But sometimes it’s unavoidable – unless you have Eagle Creek Organizers.

Perhaps, you’ve booked a one-night hotel stay at a port before or after a cruise. Or your flight itinerary includes an overnight layover before you continue on to your final destination.

Other times, you may be the unlucky person randomly chosen for inspection by the TSA, only to later discover that a stranger has tousled the contents of your suitcase. And airplane bellies, too, often act like washing machine agitators mixing things up before you’re reunited with your suitcase at the luggage carousel.

Even if you try to keep your overnight or next day essentials at the top of your suitcase, as soon as you reach for anything below the top, things can get messy pretty quickly, especially if your suitcase is loaded!

The organizing solution

The Eagle Creek Starter Set

Eagle Creek Starter Set

Eagle Creek Pack-It bags are a great solution for the traveler who wants to stay organized. The bags come in a variety of shapes and sizes to protect and organize the contents of your suitcase. For example, you can use one for socks and another for underwear.

We’ve tested them and can recommend them without reservation:

1) They’re featherweight

Given weight limitations for checked baggage, you don’t want to use organizers that add heft or weight.

2) They’re translucent

You can see what’s inside without opening the zippers.

3) They’re extremely durable and long-lasting

The bags are stain and water-resistant, and hold up to frequent use.
