    Best way to pack a cube for the tristar

    I am a proud owner now for about three years of a tristar..... the best piece of luggage I could ever imagine.

    I have packed the cubes using various methods..... usually a combination of rolling the clothes and folding the clothes.

    My partner travels with a wheeled bag and will never covert and that is fine. We were looking at more effective ways to pack his bag. usually uses cubes and folders and a combination of techniques.
    We decided to try the bundle method and were surprised how it worked.

    I think it depends a lot on where you are traveling, for example if you go to one place and unpack the bundle method is a good option.

    This led me to think about packing the cube for the tristar in the this method and wondering how others pack their tristar cubes

    Not Tri-Star specific, but your analysis on the bundle method echoes my own experience with it. Works great if you are just going from point A to point B, and staying at point B for long enough to unpack and later repack. It worked well for an Alaska cruise vacation the wife and I took in May (though it doesn't fit all that will in the square Aeronaut packing cubes I now use).

    For more on the go trips, I find rolling or even just folding into the packing cubes much better since you can just grab the items you need without opening the whole bundle.
