The Best Travel Organizer Bags

OTG247; The After Action Review

I wrote about my new packing hack here, before we left for our crazy, whirlwind work trip in Switzerland. But I felt like I needed to give you guys a review of how these organizer bags actually worked out in real life and if I still thought it was a good idea.

Organizer bags. The best organizer bags of travel.

I was already a customer of OTG247 (and still am) when they gifted me with some of the bags you see here.

Spoiler alert: Thats an enthusiastic-Yes. 100%!

I related before how many moving parts were going to be on this trip. Stops and starts, multiple meetings and many modes of travel. During our trip we were on planes, trains, trams, gondolas, elevators, escalators, cars, buses and just on foot- all with a lot of necessary luggage. Suffice it to say that on most days, we had to be organized and on the ball.

Packing cubes? Forget the cubes. It’s Bags people. Bags is where it’s at.

I cannot tell you how much easier it was to pack and unpack countless times using this system with the clear bags (I have the #10’s, #4,#5 and #2 all in clear). Everything just stayed packed, because I could see where each item was, so no need to pull it all out while trying to find clothes for a meeting or for dinner! And as I’ve stated before, I was able to fit SO much more in my carryon with me!

As for the rest, the photos of these organizer bags speak for themselves. The #1 bag is large enough to hold a passport, credit cards, sunglasses, pen and lipstick. I pretty much took that with me everywhere while site seeing. It comes with a cross-body strap as well as a wristlet.

(And BTW- cashmere hoodie + spanx faux leather leggings + Blondo waterproof booties = perfect cold, damp weather sight seeing outfit!)

The #5 bag doubled many nights as an evening clutch.

I pulled out my toiletries and was able to just neatly set them on the vanity. This is a far cry from my usual explosion of makeup, skin care and hair products all over the counter. Heh…..a FAR cry.

I pulled them out again……

And they kept everything neat and tidy during the whole trip.

So, in closing, I am completely sold. The bags are beautifully made, extremely durable, waterproof and come in a ton of colors and patterns. I expect to have them for many, many years to come. I’m still a customer of OTG247. I belong to the Overly Organized Bag Club, so I get a new bag each month and it’s one of my most looked forward to subscriptions.

P.S.- No doubt you will soon be seeing these organizer bags over in the South African Bush with elephants behind them because our daughter Savannah snagged several (and purchased one of her own) to organize her backpack! She is leaving for her job as a field guide in South Africa soon and my tomboy girl fell in love with these as soon as she laid eyes on them!

I can’t thank you guys enough for taking the time to pin my posts to Pinterest! That means goes so far to help other people read my posts and helps me to keep my blog going! Thank you!
