  1. 1. Some of the luggage organizer bags are from quite heavy material. Really bogs down the luggage. If possible and if the information is provided > get lighter ones. You only need a thin material for these.

    1a. Also, get one with no mesh, but totally enclosed – reserve this one dirty clothes!
    I got this one: https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=527253226855

    2. An important note about the water purifier tube: it gets rid of sediment, some bacteria – but it does not get rid of chemical toxins. If the water is not moving, or if there is likelihood of factories etc upstream: do not use!
