Backpacking and camping is always easier when you know where your stuff is located. Few things are as frustrating as trying to find a toothbrush at the bottom of a bag when all you really want to do is hurry up and get ready for bed. Throw kids into the mix, and you learn real quick that organization matters. The Osprey Ultralight Zip Organizer is one way to keep all your cosmetics, first aid, or other accessories in the same place for fast and easy access.
The bag has a hook on the side which makes it simple to hang in a tent, bathroom, or shelter privy. Most of the zipper compartments are mesh so you can see the contents within. The zippers have cords attached so that they are visible and easy to grip even if you have on gloves.
The front compartment can be accessed from the zipper on the outside or the inside (just above the 2 mesh pockets). It opens a space that matches the dimensions of the case and is a great place for a toothbrush and toothpaste because it allows for longer objects. The two mesh pockets have a fabric covered elastic ribbon at the top that provides a little bit of tension. The elastic doesn’t make it hard to get objects in or out because it isn’t overly restrictive. Deodorant, lotion, shaving cream, hair clips or sample size products of every kind fit well here.
The two smaller zipper compartments located in the back section stretch the entire length of the bag, but they are divided into inner and outer. These are perfect for lose items such as lip balm, band aids, etc. There is a removable flap that connects with snaps. It has clear plastic that is perfect to isolate wet items or small things that can catch or slip through mesh. When we go backpacking, I generally leave this at home.
This ultralight organizer is extremely durable, lightweight, and it is perfect for any number of activities. Stuff it in a backpack or load it in a suitcase for the airplane – the Osprey Ultralight Zip Organizer is a great way to keep all your cosmetics or backpacking accessories in one place.
