So. Many. Pockets.
There comes a time in everyone’s life, whether it’s at age 25 or 55, when organization becomes of the utmost importance. This rings especially true when travel is involved, as living out of a suitcase can be problematic for chronic over-packers and under-packers alike.
Not being able to find your contact solution in your jumbled carry-on luggage can feel just as frustrating as missing the last direct flight to JFK out of Charles de Gaulle Airport. We’ve all been there, and it’s certainly not the most enjoyable part of a vacation.
Enter: a hanging travel organizer, also known as your new best friend. Specifically, the Dakine Cruiser Kit Toiletry Bag (amazon.com, from $40).
While “fashionable” may not be the first word that comes to mind when you think “hanging travel organizer” or “toiletry bag,” its functionality will win you over in about five seconds flat.
Let’s start with the basics. It comes in at $40, so it won’t break the bank and won’t break on your first hiking excursion (probably at the most inconvenient time, too). It's lightweight. Without all of your personal effects, this hanging travel organizer weighs about 14 ounces, a little less than a can of green beans. The polyester material ensures you won’t have to worry about tears or rips. And like most travel organizers, it’s accessorized with a hanging hook.
We also love that it comes with a removable clear bag that’s perfectly suited for airline security. No more rustling around your kitchen the night before a 6 a.m. flight looking for a Ziploc bag to hold your travel-sized shampoo and conditioner. You can even slip your small everyday essentials in the zippered pocket on the outside for easy access.
Checking your bag? The Dakine Cruiser Kit toiletry bag holds full-size products as well. So, before you start stalking Airfarewatchdog for your next trip deal, invest in a hanging travel organizer. You won’t regret it.
