Stuff It! "Our soft-sided travel bag loses its shape unless it’s fully packed. To fill interior gaps, I use those inflated plastic pouches commonly sent as buffers with mail-order goods. I also put an air pouch or two in exterior zip pockets and toss them later, when we have dirty laundry to stuff in those pockets instead." —Robert Behr, Williamstown, Mass.
