This is my second set-up which I purchased because I liked my first set so much. Really compacts clothing plus keeps things organized. They hold a quite a bit, but you can't overfill or you won't be able to look set. Plus you need to be careful when zipping or the zipper will jam, but Nit too hard. Sturdy compression socks with great double zippers. I've been using my first set for over three years and going strong!
I purchased these to travel around Europe switching hotels night to night but with one suitcase. I packed each bag with a set of clothes and instead of rolling my luggage in nightly, just grabbed one bag per night and left the heavy suitcase in the car. These are lightweight, and if you roll your clothes, can easily fit pants, shirt, and a jacket in the larger pouches. The smallest bag will fit clothes as mentioned, but it is somewhat a tight fit. Zipper and material are decent material, seem like they will hold up for a while.
TAKE YOUR TIME ZIPPERING!!! I've read so many reviews saying the zippers are terrible. NOT TRUE! Remember you are compressing alot of things that will but stress on the bag structure. If you just yank on the zipper, yes there will be a problem. If you work the bag slowly as you zip, no problem.
The pic isn't great but shows all 3 bags in use. The large and medium fit nicely in tsa approved measure carry on....lrg bag = 2 pair denim capris, 2 tank tops 2 tee shirts and 1 maxi dress (I am plus size btw). Medium bag = khaki pants, 2 tee shirts, 1 blouse, 1 light sweater and a bra. The small bag I used in tsa approved measure personal item. Small bag =3 tanks 1 capris 1 bra. Lots of space left in personal item for toiletries, etc. Carryon I added 2 pairs of shoes and stuffed underwear in all the crevices.
I refuse to pay the prices to check a bag so these compression bags are great.
Update: So I am back from my travels. The bags travelled really nicely through a trip that had us staying in a different place every one to two days. This means the bags were opened, emptied, repacked often. The bags stayed in one piece; absolutely no zipper issues. This set of bags was well worth the money!
I ordered two sets of these, one for me and one for my husband. We've only use them once so far but I was really impressed with how solid the stitching and zippers are, I have no worries that I'll be using these compression cubes for years. I was able to fit an entire week's worth of clothes into them which made packing my carry-on so much easier because I had one cube for pants/pajamas, one for shirts/hoodies and then the small one for socks/bras/underwear. All three easily into my 21" carry on and still left room for an extra pair of shoes and all my makeup and get ready stuff. I've used packing cubes before and absolutely loved them, and these are the same idea but additionally they ZIP down smaller to take up less precious real estate in your carry-on or backpack.
I moved my daughter home from college with these in the rain! They not only saved us a ton of space but they kept her clothes nice and dry! I put 6 shirts and 6 pairs of shorts in the medium one, her winter coat in the small one and used the large one for all of her jeans & sweaters. They are very sturdy and really easy to use. The zippers are smooth and don’t feel like they are being strained at all. I overstuffed the small one with her winter coat and it still worked great! (I took pics but not sure what happened to them) She has an adult small full length puffy adidas coat to keep her warm during Indiana winters walking around campus! Had no issue fitting it in the small size. I’m purchasing more to take on our cruise this summer. I don’t have to worry about overpacking now, I will have plenty of room! If you are an over packer you definitely need these! I tried another brand and they didn’t work as well as these did!
These are well-made packing cubes. The zippers work well and the fabric is good. As stated they do not compress like those using a vacuum, but they do compress in size using the zippers and, for me, this works well. They're great to be able to easily find what I've packed instead of having to rummage through my luggage. I purchased these to also use in our RV to make our storage space more functional and to be able to have more clothing items take up less space. I can pack the cubes in the house and easily carry them to our RV. The colors are vivid and ordering a different color for each person makes packing and then locating items much easier.
After trying several other brands, this one is the champ! Very durable and does exactly what it says they will do! I read other reviews before I purchased them about being careful not to get the material caught in the compression zippers, but I had no trouble at all. I tried them out on a 10 day student educational tour and boy did they hold up! We changed hotels every night (4 countries in 10 days) and everything was neat and organized!! I even had other parents come to check them out! I ordered another set as soon as I got home in a different color. The large size was perfect for folding my maxi’s and kimonos, and button up shirts with minimal wrinkles! I used the small one to pack an outfit and pjs in to put in my personal item on the plane in case my luggage was lost. Perfect size! Best bargain without trading quality! I love this brand!
