I was packing bulky items for my husband and me - 2 snow pants, 2 fleece pants, 3 fleece jackets, 2 pair of serious mittens (rated to -45 degrees F), Underarmour base layers, jeans, and sweaters. When I had everything laid out prior to packing, I couldn't imagine getting everything in the suitcase. I used 3 of these bags (2 large, 1 medium) and was able to get everything I needed into a single 27 inch suitcase. That includes a set of bulky snowboots for each of us! There was no way I would have been able to pack it all without these bags.
Some helpful hints - Practice with these at least once prior to packing for your trip to see how these best work for you !
* I found folding things right on top of the sac allowed me to get the folded garment to the correct size for my packing preference.
* I found it most helpful to fold clothes such that they were out to the edges of the sac and as thin as possible - i.e. snow pants were only folded in half.
* I put items on the top and bottom that were a slicker fabric - i.e. snow pants on the top and bottom with fleece items in between. This made it easier to slide clothing into the bag.
* The instructions said to roll the bag to compress it but that didn't work for me. I just started at the zippered part of the bag and pushed from there on down to the end of the bag, putting my entire body weight on it by the end.
* Remember that this allows you to put more items in the suitcase so you have to be conscious of the weight and not overpack it.
* When compressed, the sacs are fairly inflexible and stiff. There were a lot of "holes" that I needed to fill with flexible items to make the most use of my space. I usually use packing cubes that I fill to the maximum but I had to leave them only partially full so that they could flex and bend into the available space. I used slim packing cubes on the bottom of the bag that fit into the wells created by the rolling bag's handle. That created a flat surface for the compression bags and eliminated what would have been wasted space.
The sizes are surprisingly large for travel purposes, at least the way I travel. I rarely use anything bigger than a roll-aboard, and even the "small" size is at the upper end of the size spectrum that I'd find useful. Even in a large suitcase, using multiple smaller bags would be easier and lead to better organization. I suppose the larger sizes could be good for compressing a jumble of dirty laundry for the trip home.
Conceptually, a group of small bags like this would let you unpack selectively while the rest of your stuff remained compact and in the suitcase.
Great quality, though, and if you carry a bunch of clothes in big suitcases this assortment might be perfect.
