4.0 out of 5 stars My, How Things Have Evolved, July 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: eBags Packing Cubes - 3pc Set
For our last trip overseas, I bought the plastic bags that you put your clothes in and squeeze the air out of in order to condense the size. For my purposes, they worked well, though 1) they are a bit awkward to use, 2) they come from Target, and 3) they lack any aesthetic taste.

Then I found these eBags.

I'm not even sure how I came across them; probably by surfing Amazon one night while bored.

Anyhow, people were praising these bags as if they were extra leg room on an eight-hour flight.

So I bought them.

I bought the 3-piece packing cube set (raspberry, which isn't a bad description of the color, though it lacks any sign of masculinity ... should that be a concern for you).

The bags are sturdy, with a zipper that goes all the way across the top, and all the way down the sides. There is also a hoop on the bottom, should you want to hang the bag from a closet, shower head, or a tree.

They are lightweight, but durable, with two see-through mesh screens on each side. Thus, your belongings are tastefully covered, but you can also look inside to see what you put in there. The mesh also helps you to compress the air out of the bag, though not as efficiently as those Target plastic bags.

These work well for organization, as you can prioritize where you put what. As such, they are more for convienence than for allowing for more room in your suitcase/travel bag.

Anyhow, I've used them for local trips and they work well. I was hoping for better compression ability---there's a reference to my plastic Target bags again---but they get the job done.

Happy and safe travels!
