    If you could choose ONE accessory for your travel bag, which one?

    So here I am and I can't right now buy TB accessories but I'm pretty handy with a sewing machine. If you were me, what ONE accessory would you choose to try to make? What's been most useful to you on your travels and why?

    food bag, because food is life (more seriously, easily pack snack like nuts and dried fruits without taking too much room once empty is a win-win)

    Gotta be the Travel Tray - it's great as a bedside companion, cable wrangler, snack chamber, stuff sack for puffy jacket, or airplane amenity kit.

    Runner up: Snake Charmer. It makes a great dopp kit or clean/dirty packing cube.

    Current Travel Carry: A30 in Original Halcyon/Ultraviolet, DLBP in Nordic, PCSB in Sitka, Large TT in Sitka, SSK in Wasabi, 3DOC in Solar

    Maybe the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, because it is... a packing cube and a shoulder bag! I nearly always use them instead of my regular packing cubes because I like how colorful they are and how easy it is to tell them apart. (I have one in each of many different colors.)
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian.

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    My most versatile accessory is a 3DOC. I have one for snacks, one for chargers, etc. But I think I appreciate my Deluxe Spiff Kit more because I have used so many toiletry kits over the years and I love this one. It fits so nicely in even my smallest travel bags!

    If I could only have one total, it's be a 3DOc, because it holds a lot and is versatile. Can be mini toiletry kit, or small purse in a pinch. If I could only have one type of organizer, but could have multiples of that one type, then it'd be a ghost whale. I have like 4 of them I'm carrying in my edc, with another 2 slated for travel.

    This is a dangerous thread. Some of the aforementioned items are ones I do not own, and now I'm wondering why.

    For me, it's probably the PCSB for travel. I do use it for its intended purpose -- as a packing cube and then as my purse at a destination. I like that it will hold my sweater and my camera if need be, but otherwise, is super lightweight and stays compact.

    PCSB and 3DOC running neck and neck at two votes each! Anyone else?

    I'm really loving my self-sewn pocket pouch and can see more of these in my future...

    They are so similar, just one is bigger and has a front pocket. Over the years, some people have asked for a 3DOC with an inside pocket. You could make one of those! :-)

    I think the laundry stuffsack is my favorite accessory because it's so damn useful. After that, packing cubes, then laptop cache, then travel tray.

    In terms of imaginary accessories, I'd like a cache that can double as a super minimal laptop bag.

    Kind of like a field journal for laptops... (or tablets). Doesn't the daylight briefcase kind of do that? I must admit I just throw my padded laptop sleeve in my backpack and don't worry about the cache things.

    Laundry stuff sack and travel tray are kind of on my list because I find their construction interesting. 3DOC isn't really because it's just a clear packing cube and I don't get what's great about that (pocket or not). PCSB on the other hand I can see a use for, apart from that I basically use my packing cubes to have suitcases in a suitcase so as to separate my clothes from other people's clothes and/or from work stuff, so I can't see that I'd want to unpack it to have a bag? Much more likely to take a lightweight packable bag. But if you are going somewhere you can properly unpack then sure.

    3DOC doesn't have to be clear - I prefer the all fabric one for versatility. Before the travel cubelet, it was my summer just-the-essentials purse. It's also been my cords and chargers bag, and a small bits and bobs bag.
