I really like these compression cubes. Pros: They are very well made. All the stitching is precise and even. All the seams are bound There are no loose thread ends. The zippers are heavy duty and work easily You get a lot for your money 3 compression cubes 4 clear zip type bags for accessories 1 large shoe/compression kit storage bag They reduce the size of the clothing by about 3/5ths Organization The mesh top allows you to see what is in the cube You can pack according to use i.e. socks with underwear etc. The Shoe bag is just the right size for my hiking shoes and a pair of slippers or water shoes. There is not much to say about the zip type plastic bags other than they are fairly heavy duty. Cons: The only thing I can think of is that it might be good to have mesh on both sides for a better visual of what is in the cube.
These compression packing cubes are one of my favorite products. I travel frequently and I have had a set of the standard packing cubes from Gonex which I’ve loved, but these are even better thanks to the compression zippers. I should probably disclose that I’m kind of a “neat freak” and I get a certain satisfaction from organizing that some people don’t relate to, but nevertheless these packing cubes make life much easier when you’re traveling.
I was able to fit 6 pairs of pants into the large size without feeling like I was putting a lot of stress on the stitching. I easily fit 6 polos in the medium size. Socks and underwear fit into the small cubes. They pack easily into my carry-on suitcase (see images). Previous to using packing cubes, I would rarely unpack in my hotel room and I would rummage through my suitcase to find my clothes and felt like I was always repacking everything to get it to fit. Since having these, I simply drop each cube into a drawer and unzip it so I can easily find a change of clothes. Repacking my suitcase is as simple as zipping up each cube and tossing it into my bag. I sometimes use one of the medium sizes as a dirty laundry cube and it keeps everything organized.
Funny story... I was randomly pulled from the security line at the airport and the TSA agent was legitimately impressed by the packing cubes and said it was the most organized bag they had ever searched.
These are great for frequent or infrequent travelers alike. I bought a set in different colors for each of my kids which makes it so much easier to manage their clothes on a vacation. These are ideal for anyone who travels or likes to stay organized. I cannot recommend them enough.
Pros: -Quality construction and materials -Durable zippers -Breathable mesh outer -Ideal sizing for packing into a suitcase
Cons: -Not really a con, but I personally didn’t find the hidden pouch or plastic bags very important. I would’ve preferred that they include a small shoe bag with a cinch closure that could double as a laundry bag.
these bags are insanely awesome! 6 dresses, 13 tops, a pair of pants and a pair of shorts fit in the big bag. 15 pairs of thunderwear and a handful of sox in the small bag. half my suitcase is empty! i used the plastic roll-up compression bags in the past, but they would always end up refilling with air and eventually stopped being effective after a few trips. hopefully these last longer than just a few trips. i will update if any problems, but so far super good stuff!
These packing cubes are a big convenience for organizing and compressing items. I plan to use these any time I travel as they allow me to keep clothes separate and the ability to compress all of the clothes will inevitably save space within my luggage. The cubes are light weight but feel sturdy and the zippers work well. Having different size options is also helpful when packing different clothing items. This item is going to have a big positive impact on the way I pack when I travel!
The compression cubes are just what I was hoping for! I have some others from this company and was so excited to see they had a set of medium cubes. They are perfect for my childrens' clothes as they don't take up as much space as adult sized clothes. To compress them, I just place my finger behind the zipper as I close the cubes so the zipper doesn't get stuck on the inner fabric. They seem like high quality just like others I have purchased. I like that they are mesh so the clothes can breathe. 4 plastic bags came with it that are nice sized for full sized toiletry bottles. The sealed portion is about 11.75" x 7.25". A drawstring bag is also included with the set that I like to use for dirty clothes. I just wish they offered more colors, otherwise they are perfect! I can't wait to use them on our upcoming trip!
I loved these bags!!! I purchased 4 sets for my family to use on our two week trip to Europe (Italy, Rome, Greece and London. These bags worked fantastic!. My sons and I used these in conjunction with an Osprey Farpoint 70 backpack and it compressed our load down considerably and made packing a breeze. You knew right where things were. My wife used hers with a typical hardside wheeled suit case and she had the same experience. I will say that you need to be careful when zipping the compression zipper so as not to zip in the bag material. Once we got the hang of that it was not an issue. I would highly recommend these bags to anyone that is looking to reduce space and organize their luggage whether it be for a trip to Europe or a weekend getaway.
I bought packing cubes from Gonex before and it changed my life traveling forever. I could pack nearly twice as much in the same bag and have everything arrive neat and organized. Just take the bags out of the suitcase and place them in the closet or in a drawer. Now things got even better. These new packing cubes are so lightweight and well made they hold more and then there is another zipper that compresses everything into 1/2 the space!! This travel set has 11 pieces from large to small. I am really happy to use them.
These packing cubes are amazing! The compression zipper makes the packing cube so much smaller. I stuffed the cube pretty full and didn’t think i would be able to compress it but it did! Saved lots of space. So happy with this purchase. Already thinking about getting more.
I have other packing cubes, but this set has some unique features. It has three cubes which expand with a zipper, similar to how many suitcases can expand. It also comes with a shoe bag and plastic zipper bags. And all this for $17! Some other brands I've bought sell a single cube for more.
I love the packing cubes. They're lightweight, the compression is great, and you can see through the screen in the front so I don't have to open up every cube to find stuff. The plastic bags had no use for me. I hate wasting/using plastic especially plastic bags because they're so disposable. Wish they didn't include them.
