When you’re packing with care, everything looks nice and tidy. Clothes are folded or rolled up, toiletries are safely nestled in bags and electronic accessories, like headphones, chargers and cables, are laid in a perfect state of untangled Zen on top of the socks and to the left of the hiking shoes.
Then, as soon as you unzip your luggage upon arrival at your destination, those cables have somehow weaved themselves into a massive, frustrating ball that never untangles as quickly as you want. You start to wonder if you really need to charge anything. Is it worth the trouble?
The Grid-It, by Cocoon, promises to help alleviate your detangling woes. The accessory organizer stows your items against a flat surface, holding everything in place with interwoven elastic bands. It is made to hold accessories like headphones, cords and chargers — all those things that can get the most out of order when packed loose in a bag.
The elastic bands are also made to provide packers endless configurations, aiming to stow any item and keep it firmly in place, no matter the size or shape.
The Grid-It organizer sells for $19.99 on Cocoon’s website. The brand also offers organizer bundles for travelers who need to pack many items of different sizes. For instance, one bundle contains one small, one medium and one large Grid-It organizer for a $49.99 total.
Want to keep your tablet safe as well as your other accouterments and gadgets? Cocoon offers a Grid-It that comes with an 11-inch tablet storage pocket, designed to carry an Apple iPad.
