Packing your stuff with perfect geometrical precision before you leave on a trip, only for everything to turn into a heap of shrapnel when you get to your accommodation is basically an art form. Who hasn't spent valuable travel time digging through their bag for a plug adapter, charging cable, portable power bank, dongle, or their passport and boarding pass while holding up the aisle line? But it doesn't have to be that way. Travel tech organizers can keep all your stuff in one tight, stylish package.

As simple as a pouch or as complex as a case with more than a dozen straps and pockets over several compartments, travel tech organizers are all a little bit different. But while extensive features are nice, not everyone is bringing that much gear with them when they travel, so make sure you pick one that fits you and your style.

For a travel tech organizer that fits all the essentials, especially during a flight, the best overall option the Native Union Stow Lite Organizer. It might not be the largest, cheapest, or most stylish option, but it's the simplest way to grab what you need quickly, and it's built to last.

Best Overall

Native Union Stow Lite Organizer

Native Union Stow Lite Organizer W.F.A Tech Organizer – Minimalist Travel Pouch Made of Recycled Materials for Everyday Accessory Storage & Protection – Stores Cables, Chargers & More (Black)


Why We Love It
  • You can just unzip and grab what you need without having to unfurl it on a table.

What to Consider
  • It is quite small, so there's no room for a tablet, laptop or related accessories.

Since 2009, Native Union has built an empire on its sleek, high-quality tech accessories that accompany Apple products. And while not exclusively for Apple users, this minimalist travel tech organizer continues that tradition.

You simply unzip it and tiny pockets on the sides keep things organized. So the main pocket — which expands to make the case rectangular — is the perfect place to put your phone and travel documents like a passport and boarding passes. Heck, you could even put a sleeping eye mask in there. Then, you can stuff your charging cables, ear plugs, and earbuds (pro tip: bring two — one with a wire for in-flight entertainment and your usual Bluetooth set) in the tiny side pockets.

Best Budget

Bevegekos Tech Organizer Travel Case

Organizer Travel Case, Bevegekos Small Carrying Tech Kit for Electronics and Accessories, Waterproof ( Black)


Why We Love It
  • Two compartments maximize the amount of tech you can pack into this small organizer.

What to Consider
  • It's petite, so it won't do very well holding larger accessories.

There are travel tech organizers out there for a few bucks cheaper, but the Bevegekos has the best features for the price. The small case has two compartments: one with two mesh pockets for tech like a phone and a power bank or external hard drive, the other for cables, adapters, headphones, a mouse and/or small wall chargers. The outside isn't the most durable — you get what you pay for — but it is water-resistant Jacquard, so if some water spills in your bag you won't have to worry. When you're not traveling, this case also works well for pens, pencils, and erasers.

The Details: 9.41 x 7.52 x 1.89 inches | 4.2 ounces | Jacquard | Water-resistant

Best for Small Laptops and Tablets

Knomo London Mayfair Knomad Tech Organiser

Knomo London Mayfair Knomad Tech Organiser


Why We Love It
  • It fits everything you need — from passport to sub-13-inch laptop or tablet to cables and credit cards — in one sleek case.

What to Consider
  • It's on the heavier side and difficult to open from a cramped airplane seat without bumping elbows with the person beside you.

The cleverly-named Knomad from Knomo is a one-stop shop for your travel tech. At 13 inches, the case is big enough for a MacBook Air or standard iPad (though not Pro models) and has convenient pockets that make it easy to see everything as soon as you open it. The case also comes with a two-year warranty and a pull-out shoulder strap, so you can take it down to the pool without having to stuff it in another bag.

Price at time of publish: $27

The Details: 10.6 x 14.76 x 2.36 inches | 17.6 ounces | Nylon and leather | Water-resistant

Best Mesh Pouch

Easyfun Mesh Make up Organizer Bag with Zipper

EASYFUN Mesh Pouch, Make up Bag with Zipper Cosmetic Organizer Pouch for Daily or Travel to Keep Small Items, 4 PCS Black


Why We Love It
  • These mesh bags keep things simple and affordable.

What to Consider
  • It still might be annoying to ruffle through your bag to find multiple pouches rather than having all your gear in one place.

There are plenty of travel tech organizers on the market with a plethora of features and designs — but do you really need something so fancy? This four-pack of mesh bags certainly does the trick in a pinch, and it's the most affordable option on this list.

The pouches are made of mesh polyester, so you can see what you're looking for without unzipping, and they come in a few sizes: two small 5-inch, one medium 8-inch, and another 10-inch large. Don't have much tech? Use these to organize your cosmetics, pencils — whatever!

Price at time of publish: $12

The Details: 2 at 5.1 x 4; 1 at 8.2 x 5.1; 1 at 10.2 x 7.2 inches | 1.08 ounces | Polyester mesh

Most Durable

Aer Cable Kit 2 Black

Cable Kit 2 Black


Why We Love It
  • This rugged case has plenty of cool features and is made with military-grade material to keep your gear safe.

What to Consider
  • It's pricier than most other bags on this list and might be overkill on pockets, depending on how much gear you own.

For many of us, the tech products we bring on our trips are the most expensive things we're traveling with. They might even be the most expensive things we own, period. So it's a good idea to take care of them. Aer's cable kit is made with water-resistant nylon that was originally developed for military body armor, so those travel tweezers in your bag aren't going to stand a chance at breaking through. Plus, the organizer really maximizes space with a ton of cool features over two compartments and an outside zipper pocket, all while not being very heavy.

Price at time of publish: $50

The Details: 9 x 6 x 3 inches | 11.2 ounces | Nylon | Water-resistant

Most Stylish

Cuyana Leather Travel Case Set

Leather Travel Case Set


Why We Love It
  • With two sizes to choose from, no one will guess this sleek bag is actually carrying all of your tech cords.

What to Consider
  • Other organizers have many more pockets and features.

This travel tech organizer from Cuyana is sure to go well with your set of luxury handbags, elevating your travel style while hiding away your tech gear. The features of this bag are nothing special — one big pocket inside a single compartment — but it looks great and comes in a variety of stylish colors. Handmade in Argentina, the soft leather exterior is sure to keep any device or power cord safe on the go while making your travel gear look extra special.

Price at time of publish: $128

The Details: 7 X 12 X 3.5 inches | 16 ounces | Leather

Best Multi-cable

Bagsmart Universal Travel Cable Organizer Bag

BAGSMART Electronic Organizer Small Travel Cable Organizer Bag for Hard Drives,Cables,USB, SD Card,Black


Why We Love It
  • This case has plenty of loops and pouches for all of those cables, chargers, SD cards, and USB keys.

What to Consider
  • If you don't carry that many cables, you might want something smaller, or one which can fit a laptop or tablet.

If you're the kind of person that gets dizzy keeping track of all your cables (USB, USB-C, Ethernet, HDMI, etc.), this is the travel organization case for you. Bagsmart's small kit packs in a lot: there are two zippered pockets, six other mesh pockets with elastic loops above them to keep everything secure, three SD card slots, and several more elastic loops for things like pens. That's a lot of organization, and yet the case remains very light and thin. Perhaps that's why it's a mainstay in many frequent flyers' travel lists.

The Details: 6.1 x 8.5 x 0.8 inches | 3.2 ounces | Nylon | Water-repellent

Best Box

Function101 Bentostack

BENTOSTACK Tech Accessory Organizer


Why We Love It
  • It's stylish and keeps you organized when working at a desk or table.

What to Consider
  • It might be bulky and heavy, depending on what kind of bag you're packing it into.

Serious creativity points go to this bento box-style travel tech organizer, which is inspired by modern Japanese lunch boxes. It comes apart in four blocks, all of which stack on top of each other for easy transport, and it's specifically designed to hold Apple accessories such as the pencil, watch, cable, and charger.

A really neat feature with this organizer that you don't see in the rest is that the blocks can come apart to create little compartments for your gear while you work, so you stay organized at your desk as well. It even has a little flip stand for your phone for using it as an extra mini-screen.

Price at time of publish: $50

The Details: 9.2 x 2.8 x 2.8 inches | 12.9 ounces | Plastic

We love how most Away gear can be completely tailored to your own tastes and this tech travel bag is no exception.

This deep bag is large enough to fit most of your gear and includes elastic loops so you can safely store your smaller cords.

Tips for Buying a Travel Tech Organizer

Know what storage you need

Each travel tech organizer is made differently, but depending on the tech you have, you might not need so many pockets, bands or compartments. For instance, if you already have a laptop case that you like, you might not need another one. You should also make sure it'll fit into your carry-on. Suffice to say, bigger isn't necessarily better when it comes to travel tech organizers.

Consider durability and water-resistance

When traveling with any tech, you want to make sure that all cords and screens are as protected as possible. For the outside of the case, you may want to opt for a travel tech organizer that is made with durable or even water-resistant materials while the inside should be lined with padded or soft materials to keep items from breaking during your travels.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • When is a travel tech organizer useful?

    If you fly a lot, keeping all of your documents and travel gear handy is well worth it. It'll save you from holding up the line to find a pen to fill out customs forms, or if you need to charge an item on the plane. Travel tech organizers are also useful for digital nomads, or those who frequent cafes or co-working spaces as it can keep your essential tech all in one place.

  • What should I put in my travel tech organizer?

    These are supposed to make your life simpler — not more complicated. So plan to only put what you need in the case. For example, will you really need that old external hard drive at the ready on the plane? That said, extra pockets can also be convenient for your travel documents and even chapstick or eyeliner.
