Ever since I started using these nylon mesh zipper bags, my travel experience has improved. I have one bag for paper stuff and pens, one for medicine and first aid, one for tools and gear, one for cords and portable power, and one for snacks. When I get home I leave the bags in my suitcase, making packing much easier the next time I take a trip. The bags are see-through and very durable.
I just bought another set of these bags to hold components for Raspberry Pi projects. I think I have a total of 36 of these bags now.
I’m on board. The ones I have, which were labeled as makeup bags, increased over 500% since I bought them last. These seem a solid replacement.
They also work at TSA, or at least I’ve never had an issue with them.
My general rule of thumb is that unless you’re a) paying for it and also b) those payments represent a significant source of revenue for the company offering it, it’s never worth investing significant effort to rely on a third-party API.
