Eagle Creek’s Converge Toiletry Cube recently served me well on a two-weeker through Croatia and Slovenia.

At 7″h x 9″l x 3”w, its compact form and two-compartment design was just right for my minimalist travel style: deodorant, soap, shampoo, lotion, toothpaste and toothbrush.

The Eagle Creek’s Converge Toiletry Cube compartments can be partially unzipped, and this allows the bag to stand up vertically, a handy feature when navigating tiny European bathrooms.

The six interior pockets and elastic webbing kept everything neat and organized. Cleanup was a cinch when airplane cabin pressure caused an entire tube of hair gel to coat the inside of one of the compartments. Into the washer it went, coming out good as new.

My only complaint: I got the cube in black, and found it hard to see inside. I recommend the blue or green/tan colored bags for anyone who might have the same issue.

Bottom line:  Not for over-packers. This cube is tailor-made for those who pack light.
