Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter e-Cubes
Eagle Creek have long been the experts on modular organization, making removable, soft-sided cubes dedicated to finding a spot for just about everything in your suitcase. In July, they launched the same type of system, but for your electronics, with their water-resistant, featherweight nylon ripstop fabric wrapped around padded cubbies. Stick your lenses or camera in your suitcase with less worry — or turn any backpack you already own into a camera hauler. Bonus: The fabric is translucent, so it’s easy to spot exactly what you need on the fly.
