Tom Bihn Packing Cubes

Our Packing Cubes are designed to help you organize and keep neat and tidy your clothes, socks, and shoes; they’re the perfect complement to — and are available in specific sizes for — our AeronautTri-Star, and Western Flyer carry-on travel bags.

Packing Cubes can be used in multiple configurations. Made out of our custom ultralight 200 denier Japanese Dyneema®/nylon ripstop fabric, our Packing Cubes are very lightweight yet tough enough for a lifetime of use for most folks. Note that, in some sizes, Packing Cubes are available in either Fabric/Mesh or All Fabric. The All Fabric version is intended for storing shoes, dirty clothes, or other items you may want to keep separate from the other stuff inside your bag. The Fabric/Mesh version allows you to more easily see what’s inside your Packing Cube.

The top of our Packing Cubes features a webbing loop for hanging them on a hook or doorknob.

For use in the Aeronaut:

Large Packing Cube: Use two (stacked one on top of the other), or one plus two Small Packing Cubes.

Small Packing Cube: Use four (stacked one on top of the other, or interlocking like bricks), or two plus one Large Packing Cube.

End Pocket Packing Cube: One fills each end pocket, or four can fill the main compartment, like books on a shelf. Note: The End Pocket Packing Cube is available in either Fabric/Fabric or Fabric/Mesh. The All Fabric version is intended for shoes or other items you may want to keep separate from the rest of your stuff. The Fabric/Mesh version of the Aeronaut End Packing Cube is slightly different than the Fabric/Mesh Tri-Star and Western Flyer Packing Cubes in that both sides (or top and bottom, once it’s out of the Aeronaut) are fabric rather than the top being mesh; in other words, the edges are mesh. This is specifically because the mesh does not slide as nicely as our Dyneema®/nylon fabric, and it’s necessary for the Fabric/Mesh Packing Cube (especially when full) to be able to gracefully slide into the end pockets; in Tom’s early prototypes that were mesh on one side, the mesh would catch on the Aeronaut’s zipper, etc., as we tried to slide it in.
