These do exactly what they say they do. They hold and compress your clothes very well. I would recommend you do not overstuff if you plan on using the zipper to compress. If you overstuff and are having a hard time using the compression zipper, leave it uncompressed. I think overstuffing is where other users may have had issues. I will say that you do need to be careful when using the compression zipper to not get any excess materials caught in the zipper. Take a few moments to be careful and you won't have any issues. Overall, I would buy these again.
I use these packing cubes on a trip I took. I love these. My clothes did not get wrinkled because I folded them up. I love the color. It's easy to spot. They have an added zipper so it expands when needed. I would use them again. It really made the trip easy to unpack my clothes and keep them in order.
This is the most comprehensive review I've ever done so here goes; I'm a budget flyer (Spirit and Frontier) and I use an under seat bag (pictured) to save on baggage fees. I bought these so I can add an additional shoe choice in my luggage. Wow! What a difference these compressing packing cubes make! In the bag I put, 2 pairs of jeans, two tops, a Blazer and layered my undergarments in-between (didn't want to put my panties on blast) and as you can see, it fit in my bag perfectly with room for an extra pair of shoes which was my goal. The bag pictured is a 15". I recommend when zipping up the compression zipper, you put your finger under the zipping mechanism to guide it along, otherwise the material may get caught. Great purchase, good quality and love the color! So glad I found these!!
I got this Gonex set of 3 packing cubes last week sometime and now I’m starting to pack for an upcoming trip. Just as I’m trying to zip up the second compression zipper, there’s a little rip that formed on the side of the bag. I’m not sure if this can handle the opening and closing of the cube for the entirety of the trip. I will update my review after I return.
I prefer compression packing cubes to non-compression packing cubes. A trick I do is to pack without compression upon departure at start of trip. At end of trip or when leaving destination, I use the compression zipper whenever I buy souvenirs. Compress the clothes so there is more room for bringing souvenirs back home. This trick works best if you pack light...
