Most of the reviews I've read speak of sweaters and men's dress shirts which is great but I wear more dresses than shirts so I thought I'd post my observations. The 15 is meant for 7 shirts. I didn't want to put 7 dresses in the pack since they tend to take up more room.. they are longer than shirts!
I was able to pack 2 mid-length dresses, 1 short dress, 2 blouses and 1 thick cardigan in a pack with room to spare. The stack of clothes folded in a pile (pre-compression) was 4 inches tall. Once I strapped the pack down with the Velcro straps the tallest part of the pack (middle was thinner than ends due to Velcro being down the middle) was just under 2.5 inch.
I left the pack sitting in my room for a full day and when I unpacked the top dress had small creases on the sides where it over lapped but very minor. The rest of the stack including my silk blouse were immaculate.
Its good to note that my short dress measured 35 inches long and the skirt portion had to be folded over. So if you are intending to use these for dresses like myself, i would suggest getting the 18 Pack-it just for a bit more room (and less folding over).
Not to bad for my first trial. Real test will be in a few days.
This is the first time I've tried using this system, and it is so much better than just dumping everything in your suitcase you can't imagine. If you have a big trip coming up, do yourself a favor and get your suitcase organized with this gear.
The folder is my favorite since it keeps shirts neatly arranged and the wrinkles are minimal. The size will hold about 5 shirts without an issue. You could hold more but I think wrinkles will appear then.
The construction is of great quality and the handle is very convenient as is the hard plastic folding "device" which is nothing more than a plastic rectangle with some instructions printed on it, but that is all that's needed to neatly fold shirts.
This folder plus a couple of the packing cubes, a shoe sac and a compression bag for dirty laundry are my basic organizing kit. The folder is the most ingenious solution of all of them, but you do need the other ones as well. And yes, once you have them, you'll realize, as I did, that you DO need them.
You fold the clothes around a plastic board the size of the "envelope" that the clothes go into. Pull out the board and fold the next item. After all the items are folded, you wrap the outer "envelope" shaped cover over the clothes, pulling tightly. The clothes compress, and take up less room in the suitcase. The clothes come out of the packing folders with very few, if any wrinkles.
This product is a must have for people who travel either for business or pleasure.

Good for packing dress shirts in your carry on. They will crease along the fold lines, but much better than folding nad stowing them in the bag. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Anubhav Bhatia
