These days, travel bags and suitcases are designed to pack and organize your things efficiently, but small objects still seem to get lost when thrown around in a bag. The Grid-It by Cocoon aims to eliminate the mess and keep your backpack clutter-free.


The flat, rectangular panel is made up of a series of interlaced, elastic bands that hold your items securely. The tension and sticky quality of the bands ensure nothing slips out even when the bag is thrown around. Packers have an infinite number of ways they can organize and store their things on the panel, which is capable of securing everything from camera lenses to make-up bottles.


The Grid-It comes in a variety of sizes, and there are models designed to hold Macbooks and iPads, as well. Cocoon also has a line of bags with the elastic bands integrated into them. You can learn more about Grid-It on Cocoon’s website.
