My wife and I recently took a 2 week trip to Europe and were trying our best to travel light. We limited ourselves to one roll on suitcase and one small backpack. I could not have done it without these packing cubes. They work as designed and held up well to multiple packing and unpacking while VERY over stuffed with no signs of wear and tear.

These packing cubes are wonderful. I used them to fit 6 shirts, 2 sweaters, 3 pairs of shoes, 3 pairs of pants, one skirt, toiletries, and a few extra things for a one week trip to Paris in a carryon only. Fabulous! I will never haul a large suitcase again.

I just updated my Eagle Creek Travel Gear Packs with this "feather weight" set. They weigh almost nothing but it is great to be able to find everything you are looking for when it is organized! Great Stuff!!

I have only one complaint about this, and it has NOTHING to do with Eagle Creek (I called them and they were great - highly recommend them). My issue is with Amazon Fullfillment in Las Vegas, where this shipped from. The box they chose to pack the order in was too small, so the folding boards had to be BENT to fit into the box, so they have a permanent curl set in. This, unfortunately makes using them to fold your clothes around a bit awkward. I am at a loss to explain this: did the person packaging the order (there was no invoice, no note, no receipt, no "Packed with Pride By________" slip of paper) see the box was too small and just think, "What the H***." and just cram the items in? Did they not understand the purpose of the items, and that to function, they had to be FLAT? I mean really, which is worse: using a box that is slightly larger, or folding the board to fit it in a smaller box? To top it off, there is absolutely no indication , except on the shipping label, where the items came from. Next time, I will order direct from Eagle Creek.

So I recently purchased these for travel and was able to quickly put them to use with a 6 day trip to Aspen over new years. I would say they have more pluses than minuses:

Pluses:

-Easier organization, your underwear can stay with your underwear, your t-shirts with other t-shirts. gone are the days of a messy search on day 5 or your trip for a clean pair of underwear.
-Compression, I felt like I was probably able to fit more clothes into my carry-on than normal. I did 6 days in aspen with a backpack and a carry-on. This isn't abnormal, but I was able to bring a lot of different shirt and pant combo's than normal. Which was good considering I would have to cover everything from nice formal wear for new years eve to comphy lounging clothes for after the mountain.
-You can set up a "System" I like order in my life, so these fit in very well. When it was time to get ready I just grabbed my toiletry kit, a t-shirt from my shirt packing cube, a fresh pair of undies from that cube, and the shirt and pants from the folding cube. When it was the end of the day the dirty clothes made their way to my travel laundry bag and we could repeat the process the next day.

Minuses:

-The first one was that the pull on the zipper of one of the bags broke off immediately. That didn't really affect the product that much though.
-They don't open up all the way in a clam shell fashion, so if you want the t-shirt from the "bottom" of the bag you have to unpack then re-pack the cube to get to it.
-Hard to fit together in a carry on, this was probably my biggest issue with these, yea they help compress and organize clothes, but they don't "jigsaw" together well in a bag, so I found that I probably wasted a decent amount of room in the recesses of my carry on. I will still use these for sure, but maybe I need to figure out a little better solution for making them fit together.

In conclusion, they helped with a recent 6 day trip to keep me organized and compressed, but they don't fit in a carry on like I had hoped :/ Still a worthwhile purchase.

I love these. I am going on a 16 day cruise and had to figure out a way to not have 2 checked pieces of luggage. These Pack-It Cubes did it. I will have a carry on and one checked bag, which will cost me $25 each way. If I had to take two it would have been $70 each way. I watched the video on YouTube on how to pack with these and I can't wait to try it. It looks like a lot of space will be saved and no cloths wrinkled.

Product works very well, especially if you are on the smaller side. I used the 2 bags for a trip to Napa and other than 2 dresses I brought and my shoes, I was able to fit all of my other clothes inside these bags. I did roll my clothes, but so much fits in these bags my suitcase seemed nearly empty. Also, you cannot beat the price. You save about $20 buying them together.

I didn't believe it at first, but these things DO work better than just a suitcase alone or using ziplock bags. I went to Vegas a week ago for 5 days and only took a carry on and I really wish I would have had this for that trip. My bag was so stuffed and it was hard to pull things out of the bag without disrupting something else. This system will eliminate that, especially if the TSA comes in and opens your bag and rummages around in it.

I have a trip coming up to California in a few weeks so you know I'm going to use these for sure. I tested them out with 4 days worth of clothes which happens to be the duration of my next trip. It wasn't a problem at all and I had the one pouch left over that I didn't even use! I'll try to post a photo of my results so you can see how amazing it is.

These are lightweight, they seem sturdy like a windbreaker jacket type material. I like the zipper closures, that's a nice touch. The only thing is I wish they were a bit more see through or had a window in them so I could know at a glance what is in there but that is a small gripe. For a short trip I suppose I ought to remember.

I travel for work every single week, and this is great. Everything is compact, contained, and easy to pack. The absolute best part of this set is the folding envelope... very possibly the most life-changing travel accessory EVER: packs 4-5 folded items (shirts, pants even jackets) compactly without wrinkling. The other pieces are nice, but the envelope makes the set.

Size Name: One SizeColor Name: WhiteVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Specter starter set is made of a very light weight material called Silnylon Ripstop, which is water-, stain-, & odor-resistant and washable. The set is best suited for storing rolled-up t-shirts/tank tops, rolled-up briefs/panties, and dress shirts/slacks folded via an included garment folding board. The folder board is a flat, rectangular, plastic form trimmed in fabric that has holes. After folding the shirts/slacks on the form (there are picture guides) & placing them on the rigid bottom of the envelope-style Silnylon garment holder, the holder's flap sides fold over the folded garments and are secured via sewn-on velcro. The garment holder secures dress shirts/slacks to avoid shifting and wrinkling. The packing bags (called cubes) can also be used for gym clothes & socks or other clothing that is suitable for rolling up, yet a user can also store folded items, if desired. The set is designed in California but made in Vietnam.

The two cubes have bright yellow trim and nylon zippers with cords & plastic tabs in the zipper pulls at the ends for extra durability. All items in the set also have durable fabric handles securely sewn just behind the top for toting or hanging. This set includes a medium-size garment holder (holds 8-12 shirts and pants) that weighs 8 oz., is 18"x12" and will fit in carry-on-sized luggage, a smaller 1/2 cube weighing 1.5 oz with dimensions of 10"x7"x3", & a larger full-sized cube weighing 2 oz. with dimensions of 14"x10"x3".

This travel organizer set appears to have addressed many packing issues. If I were a frequent flyer/traveler I would love this concept. I realize that the goal of the designers was to make the set as lightweight as possible but as a home sewer, I find nylon zippers to be untrustworthy. They split when under pressure, and become too easily derailed. Likewise, velcro has its own issues & is dependent upon its attachment method & underlying anchoring fabric. These aspects appear to be the weak areas for this set but if the set provides a modicum of peace to the harried, punishing life of travelers, then it is well worth it. I left off one star since I think the starter set cubes could benefit from a compression and/or expansion feature. Highly recommended with sewing-related caveats.
