Tom Bihn Clear Quarter Packing Cube


Originally posted on


Tom designed the Clear Quarter Packing Cube to fill up one-half of the end compartment of our Aeronaut travel bag, but its handy size is useful for many other applications as well.

The Clear Quarter Packing Cube has two equal-size compartments: it’s a great way to organize toiletries, power supplies and cables, and other small items. And with its two clear sides, at least a few of life’s mysteries are certain to be revealed.

The Clear Quarter Packing Cube opens and closes with #5 YKK coil zippers with plastic sliders, which means the Cube has no metal parts to rust or scratch electronics. A loop allows you to hang the Clear Quarter Packing Cube on a hook should you need to (that is especially useful when using it as a toiletries kit). The loop is also helpful when you’re attempting to yank the Clear Quarter Packing Cube out of an overstuffed bag.

In our bags and organizer pouches which use a clear material, that clear material is urethane instead of PVC. This is a conscious and, we hope, conscientious decision on our part; PVC is pretty nasty stuff. It isn’t good for your health (ever open a brand new PVC shower curtain, get a headache, and wonder why?) or the environment. The Europe Union has gone so far as to ban PVC children’s toys. Unfortunately, PVC is still the third most widely used thermoplastic polymer, in part because urethane and other alternatives tend to be more expensive than PVC. We think the added expense of urethane is worth it for the health of you, us, and the planet.
