DENVER, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernard Majeau, director of product development at eBags, could not leave well enough alone. His "Packing Cube 3pc set" was already the online retailer's bestselling product (of 65,000 items). And 98% of cube customers recommend them to a friend.
Majeau was not satisfied. He knows travelers' universal concern is luggage weight. Challenged to make the best even better, he wondered, could his packing cubes, a favorite of road warriors, weigh less while maintaining the quality and durability required for the eBags lifetime warranty?
eBags introduced Ultralight Packing Cubes in October 2015 and sold out by Cyber Monday, less than six weeks after launch. Customers praised not only the light weight, but the way the cubes fit perfectly in carry-on luggage. Outside Magazine featured the eBags Ultralight 4 pc Getaway Set in their December 2015 story entitled "The 9 Essentials You Need to Organize Your Gear."
Majeau commented, "The inspiration for the Ultralights came from a friend who complained about the "weight and bulk" of traditional packing cubes. That comment, combined with my desire to simplify the packing process, resulted in the new fabric, construction technique, and dimensions. The phrase 'divide and conquer your suitcase' says it all."
With Majeau's brilliant approach, his packing cubes maximize every cubic inch of a standard carry-on. The Ultralight Packing Cubes mix and match to provide maximum space utilization at half the weight of standard packing cubes.
Said Majeau, "There is a lot to love about our Ultralight Packing Cubes. Start with crazy strong lightweight siliconized Cordura® Nylon, add a new ultralight zipper from YKK®, color-matched easy-to-grab corded zipper pulls that don't sacrifice ease-of-use, and a full mesh panel for complete visibility and ventilation. Lastly, we invented a new patent pending spring loaded mini-frame so the cube holds its shape while you're filling it with your life essentials. It's time to get packing!"
eBags confirmed that the Ultralights are in stock and on track to be one of the most successful product launches in the company's 17 year history. And like all eBags branded products, they are guaranteed for life. eBags Ultralight Packing Cubes come in four colors and various sizes. The early customer favorite is the "Super Packer 5pc set" ($69.99).
And Mr. Majeau? He is back at it, studying customer reviews, listening to travelers, and tinkering with designs to create more innovative products boasting the eBags brand.
