Why our travel packing cubes are the best in the business

The compression packing cubes in our Chelsea range of travel accessories were recently tested by the team at the Independent and we’re delighted that they’ve come out as the best packing cubes from all those tested, and as such, were awarded an Indy Best Buy!

“Compression-style cubes are hard to get right; strong zips (for those inevitable moments when we’re guilty of overfilling), large areas of transparency (so we can see what’s inside without our worldly goods exploding with the force of a volcano) and easy access are all crucial. And Antler has ticked all of these boxes…”—The Independent. 

You can read the full review here. If you’re thinking of investing in a set of packing cubes yourself, either for your next trip, or as a gift for someone who loves to travel, we’ve rounded up some of our customer feedback, based on some wonderful five-star reviews.

“These packing cubes were absolutely great for my recent trip to the Maldives. The compression zip allowed me to maximise packing space in my suitcase and I even used a couple of them once we arrived to keep clothing types separate.”—Margaret T.

“These make packing a breeze! The compression zips on each cube help to reduce the volume of clothing, and they feel pretty sturdy. Wish I'd bought some ages ago!”—Rebecca D.

“I bought these packing cubes after a lot of research. They are beautiful, so well made, high quality and will be perfect for our travels. It will be easy to just pop them from my case to a drawer in my hotel - no unpacking needed . When I received my first order I then ordered 4 more sets for Christmas gifts! Packing cubes are one of those items that once used you’ll wonder how you managed without them. I love these!"—Mrs R.
