I got these in pink to match my Bagsmart carry on tote bag I got last year. I loved that bag so I figured I’d try their compression packing cubes! I just did a trial run on them and the small one fit 5 pair of socks, 4 pair of swim trunks & 6 pair of mens boxers! (That was the closest and easiest items I had to grab 🤣) I’m not using these to pack more, I just don’t want my suitcase over flowing. We do carry on only because I’m not taking a chance of losing my luggage 😟 that would be a nightmare 🙈 They seemed to hold up really well considering I stuffed so much in them and zipped them up. Zipper and fabric seem sturdy. Can’t wait to use them next month on our trip to Playa Mujeres 🏝 I feel like these are definitely worth the price. I really like the sizes they came with too!
While this is not a vacuum compression packing system, the cubes are lightweight enough that if you overpack the cube it will squeeze down the contents. And the mesh front allows you to see what’s in there. No more rummaging through the entire contents of my suitcase and disrupting everything in there to locate items. Cubes allowed me to coordinate types of clothing together and quickly locate & remove.(shirts and sweaters in one, shorts and pants in another, undergarments and socks in the smaller size, etc.) The plastic make up bags in two sizes were marked carry-on approved, but the large one is not TSA quart size approved which could be a little misleading to people who do not travel often However, the plastic is very durable and the zippers are heavy duty. I would consider purchasing extraof these if available, due to the quality. I am completely satisfied and would choose this brand again but they appear to be so durable I believe they’ll last a long time. I chose the pink which is very bright and happy but would have liked a taupe or a soft gray which were not available. A great product at a great value. And anything that can help reduce travel stress is definitely a plus!
I LOVE my packing cube set! These are awesome for traveling and maintaining organization on the go. I traveled to Europe for 2 weeks and used every piece of this 8 piece cube set split between a carry-on suitcase and a checked suitcase. They are light weight (I packed all the fashionable items I wanted for Paris and STILL came in substantially under the 50 lb weight limit). But for me, truly, I loved how much I was able to fit but keep my luggage from exploding clothes everywhere. I also love that they have handles and mesh tops to see through. We never spent more than a few days in each location, but I appreciate unpacking my suitcase wherever I go. Since my cubes were organized mostly by item types, it was easy to unpack by simply removing my cube and popping the whole cube into a shelf or a drawer. Also, I fit 3 pairs of shoes in the shoe bag. 2 pairs of flatter-ish shoes (Rothys sneakers and platform sandals) in the main compartment and a pair of flip flops in the mesh lid pocket. You guys, this was the best purchases I made in prep for my trip!
These travel compression cubes helped me pack all of my clothes for a weeklong trip into my carry-on, but I still needed an extra bag for toiletries. I was really hoping the bags would better compress some of lighter weight items, like swimsuits and undergarments, but not sure it made too much of a difference.I like the pockets on the bags with the included cards to label what’s in the bags. That’s a great feature!I’m not too sure about the quality of the bags because the seems on some of them seemed to be pulling more than they should. This was on some that had less in them than others, so it was just with two of the bags. They ended up holding up for my trip, but cannot speak to long term quality.
This is a fantastic set of travel cubes. It’s my first set, and I’ll continue to use them when I travel. I also use them for camping since space is limited. I love that there are different sizes, so I can distinguish types of clothes into different cubes. So, not only are they great for packing, but they are ideal for any destination where unpacking is limited. My clothes stay organized when I can’t really unpack. When not in use, they take up very little space. The bags themselves also have a mesh side, so clothes are always ventilated. Lastly, zippers are solid. A+ from me!
I’ve always been skeptical of how well compressions cubes would really help with space in my suitcase. I’m a horrible packer. I tried these bags for a 9-day trip and almost had everything packed in a carry-on. I always travel with the largest suitcase an airline will allow. These bags hold a lot and compressed them with the use of the second zipper. For my return trip, I just used one bag for clean items and another for dirty clothes. They held up well for my trip. My clothes weren’t too wrinkled and a little Downy Wrinkle Release helped with that. Definitely recommend these compression bags for traveling!
I got this set of 4 compression packing cubes for one thing… to try to compress my body pillow down so I can bring it in my suitcase! My autoimmune arthritis has made sleeping in hotel beds less comfortable, and I know sleeping as well as I can is important. I need my body pillow! I picked this set because I was hoping the largest size would work, and I liked the color for the price. It works!! I can easily get my pillow in the large cube. I cannot easily finish the compression zipper, though… my teen daughter can get it for me, lol! It actually works in my carry-on without being compressed, but getting the compression zipper closed all the way around does give me more room in my bags. Either way, it’s awesome and I’m so happy to have it! My other child has claimed a smaller bag to fit a comfy blanket in luggage, too, and I’m sure we’ll find uses for the other two bags we got. They have held up well now for 4 trips and I’m grateful!
These are awesome! Make packing a breeze and seem to be durable. I was able to fit so much in them and the zippers seem strong… held up for 2 months on a long a road trip.
I bought the compression cubes for a safari trip where our luggage needed to be in a soft sided duffel bag. Overall I was very happy with how it kept my luggage organized and the labeling system was great. When we got to some of the lodges and hotels, I was glad for the zippers that kept any spiders or other insects from crawling into my clothes. I don’t think I overpacked one of the 14″x10″ cubes but when I was unpacking I noticed this rip.
I was so happy with these that I ended up buying 2 more sets. They are perfect. Even full, I can still zip the compressions zipper. But I also like the option to overfill them and leave them uncompressed. They are flexible, yet hold their shape. The medium holds one day of summer clothes for 4 people and can still compress down. You can fit in summer pajamas in addition to the clothes also if you don’t compress it. The small ones are good for bathing suits/underwear etc. A great purchase!
I’ve never packed with cubes but a friend suggested I do. They’re roomy as it seems they’ll be able to hold a lot to then zip down and compress. Looking forward to using these on my upcoming trip. Love the double opening wet/dry bag that comes with it. They seem pretty durable. Maybe I’ll update with how much I can pack using these as I’m only taking a carry-on for 5 day trip.
These are great for packing on a trip and since they compress they will fit nicely in a backpack if you were to go hiking or on an outing and needed to shrink clothing for more space. I really like them more than my original packing cubes that don’t compress. I packed bathing suits and a couple of dresses for my vacation so I didn’t have any wrinkles however, in my opinion I think that has to do with how you fold or roll your clothes. Sorry I forgot to take any picks.
I can’t yet speak to durability, but they seem well constructed. This is an experiment for me, never used packing cubes before (OCD about folding and packing neatly) because I felt they would just add a bit more weight and volume. Realized however, that this small disadvantage would be offset by the ability, on a longer trip, to get to things without disturbing neatly folded shirts, etc.Heading off for a few weeks with just a carry on and backpack. We’ll see how it goes.
I hate packing because I always struggle with overpacking. I did overpack on my most recent trip, but you couldn’t really tell because everything was shoved into these packing cubes. I organized by bottoms, tops, underwear/socks, and shoes. I was able to fit about 8 pairs of shorts, one sweatpants, two pair of jeans, a pair of leggings, a pair of bike shorts, and a pair of sweatshirts in the large cube. The medium cube I fit about I would say 15 shirts(variation of tank tops, crop tops, and oversized shirts). This was only a one week vacation and everything remained organized throughout my trip. Dirty clothes I kept in a hamper and then once washed they were shoved back into the respective cube. I didn’t take the laundry bag cause it’s pretty small. I used a large cube, a medium cube, the underwear cube, and the shoe cube and they all fit into a carry on luggage.
There are a lot of compression bags promoted by a lot of “influencers” – I am looking at you “packhacker.com” – but most of them are extremely expensive and does not add any more value in durability or usability than this brand.Compression bags are awesome to save space and to compress your clothing into these cubes – which are stackable. However they are might not work for all types or clothing or for long term travel.Why do I like this brand? Well, I got a lot of bags for the price and they include a bunch of labels to span multiple trips in future.The quality of the bags, zipper held up to 1 month of constant packing/repacking and travel.Loved the small bags – they were perfect to pack 1 change of clothes as carry on while the rest were checked in.The compression bags are deceptive – they compress into a small size and your backpack looks small, so not many people at the checkin counter realize that your backpack may be heavier than what is allowed onboard. ;)This is a must buy / must have for those who like to organize their traveling or trying to fit a lot in small space.Can this be made better? Yes – compression using zipper might not work all the time, as you are trying to your hand to compress all the air out, so you can pull the zipper – always fearing that you might break the zipper.Compress straps that go all the way around the bag will make it much easier / better – when combined with the compression zipper.
I loved these packing cubes. I used them for an international trip recently and my suitcase zipper busted while in baggage claim. Lucky for me, all of my clothes had been organized between the cubes and packed safely into my suitcase, so I had no embarrassment of all of my clothes and items falling all over the place. I can fit plenty of clothes in there, and I chose to roll my clothes up. It also has smaller bags that are great for medicine or makeup. I will not travel without these cubes from now on.
I just got back from a week of motorcycle riding in Nova Scotia. Stayed in different places every night, often camping; always unloading and reloading. Very often I needed to access things on the side of the road. These organizers are the perfect solution to having everything sorted and categorized. No reaching down into one massive bag to find sunscreen, or a phone charger, or dry socks. They also make unloading and reloading the bike a cinch because they stack and pack so neatly into saddlebags and rear pack. My only suggestion for improvement would be to add clear window pockets so I can write what’s inside each bag and slip the card into the pocket for quick reference. otherwise, awesome product!CChalfont, PA
These are very high-quality. I have had other sets that I bought for about half the cost of these and they ripped the first time I used them. They seem very durable have very good zippers and the compression feature is exactly what I was looking for. You won’t go wrong with a set
I travel extensively for business and have used packing cubes in the past which are great for organization but don’t save much room. The compression cubes advertise being able to get a week’s worth of clothes in a carry on…well I hade a tough time getting a week’s worth into the compression cubes to place in a large suitcase for a cruise. What is on my bed in the picture is what I could not fit into the compression cubes. You can only fill a little over 1/2 way in order for the compression zipper to close all the way around. If you overfill, they simply become a packing cube which can be fine if your goal is more to organize than to try to get more into your luggage.I found it difficult to get my husband’s clothes in these, I feel the compression cubes may be better suited for business travel (only a few days anyway) or travel with small children. Where I was able to use them they did save some space, can allow wrinkles to set it which is an issue on a cruise ship where you cannot have an iron in your room.Suggestion to manufacturer: rather that the rapid speed video you offer to show how the suitcase is packed, provide some step by step photos of how you are rolling/folding clothing when placing them properly in the compression cubes would be more helpful.
I ended up buying 3 sets of these in 3 different shades of blue for a 4 month long overseas trip, using all but one small bag plus one shoe bag. I’m glad they give you little heavy paper things which you write (in pencil) what is in each bag. Then place that paper into a see-thru, plastic slot. You now know exactly what’s in each bag. The bigger, bulkier things like sweaters/jumpers or jackets went into the large or medium sizes. Blouses and t-shirts went into the small size, although I may have put a blouse in with a particular jacket in the medium size to help fill it up and to keep the two items together. This is a lovely idea, and now I’ve packed way to much clothing. My suitcase is 56 pounds! Plus I have a duffle bag at about 20 pounds, and a carry-on suitcase at 20-25#. Clothes are spread amongst all bags in case they get lost in transition.
I have two different sets up travel compression bags, and I prefer this one. The quality is very good. Thick material that is sturdy and holds a lot. Other thinner sets make me worry they will rip when the zipper compresses them, but not these. It’s also a very sturdy zipper. I found it easier to zip the compression zipper when I pushed the fabric in (especially around the corners).On our last trip, I packed an entire week’s worth of clothes in the large one (and I had room to spare). And each of my kids was able to use the medium sized ones for the same amount of clothes. I put the large one, and a shoe bag filled with both my kids’ shoes and mine (and one child is wearing adult men’s shoes), plus several other items in a carry-on suitcase that was not expanded. The kids each had their bags in their backpack “personal item”, plus stuffies and electronics. I was shocked at how much I could fit in them. Plus they just helped us to keep our stuff organized in our bags. The set of four worked well for us, and from the pictures it looks like a better quality material than the other options. My husband used bags from our other set, so you may need to get two sets if you want 4 people (or more) to be able to use them.
these are really nice, great colors, but don’t try to pack too much in, the compression zipper burst for me when on my way home I switched the contents and it was just slightly too full. I shouldn’t have tried to force it, but I did. It still closes, and it’s still usable, I just can’t use the compression feature.FYI, I bought another brand’s highly reviewed compression cubes- Knack- which were twice as expensive. The zipper on them feels a lot more substantial and I didn’t have an issue with overpacking them. But considering that you’re really not supposed to try to compress TOO MUCH stuff, I think the bagsmart bags are a really good value, particularly for the bright colors that stand out against the inside of a dark bag.
I’ve resisted packing cubes but decided to try these for a 12-day trip with stays in multiple hotels. They definitely kept my clothing better-organized than usual, so that I knew where the clean pants, tops, and underthings were. The compression zippers worked pretty well, although compressing my lightweight tops and T-shirts did make them wrinkle more. I didn’t really use the shoe bag for shoes (socks, mostly) but did use it once for my heavier sneakers on a day when I had switched out to a lighter pair and we were driving from one hotel to another, putting the loop over the handle of my suitcase.
Purchased for a two-week European honeymoon. The did work well and compress our packed items, but I worry about long-term durability. The second zipper for compression caught on the bag’s fabric easily and could become stuck. I never ripped the fabric, but I think I came close. Through trial and error I found that putting a finger in front of the zipper as you zip up helped with this problem.
I got these on a Lightning Deal. I was late to the packing cube party, but I’ve been using them for a while now and love how organized it makes my luggage and it’s easier to pack and unpack. I had been hearing about compression cubes and debated getting them. But my regular packing cubes were starting to get worn and I was curious how well these work. Fantastic…so far, they’re FANTASTIC! Just used them Themis weekend and was surprised by how much they fit and how small it compresses down to! I will say, reviews saying not to fill 100% is pretty accurate. I’d say anywhere from 2/3 to 3/4 full works best for compression.The fabric is very sturdy and it and the zippers are very well-constructed. Very pleasantly surprised and happy with the purchase. Would 100% recommend!
These cubes helped me stay organized while packing a lot of items between multiple pieces of luggage, for an extended trip that covered many different climates. The compression function works extremely well and the product held up well to my over-packing! I also love the clear toiletry case as it helped me keep my toiletries together & in a structured square bag which I could see everything was super helpful. I will buy these again for my family members.
Like these compression packing cubes and was able to take advantage of them when packing for a trip. So glad they arrived as soon as they did. Nice that each one has a handle. May use the smallest one as a travel toiletries bag roomy enough to add my electric shaver while taking less overall space than my traditional toiletries bag. The range of sizes will allow me to use in large, medium, and small bags.I have been a big user of packing cubes for years. Using compression bags was just the next step in organizing while taking less room on smaller luggage than before.
I really didn’t think this would work for me. I am a CHRONIC over packer, but I am very very impressed with these bags!! Good quality, great price. I did watch a YouTube video on how to effectively use them, and I am sold. Every time I have to take a trip now, I will be using these bags, they save so much space.
I am no sure how I ever managed to pack without these. I saw them mentioned serial times on social media and thought I’d give them a try for my next trip. I amazed myself (I’m a serious over packer). The trick is to tight roll everything and do not over-stuff to give room to compress. I have told everyone I know about these and plan on getting a lot of use out of them.
Absolutely love the feminine leopard print!!! these bags are not only cute, they’re compact & durable. The different size options allows me to separate night clothes, day clothes & dirty laundry & because of the compression I can truly fit more clothing options into my luggage without bulking it out. I especially like that my under garments are tucked away and not fully exposed whenever TSA or Customs searches my bags. I definitely recommend these bags as a thoughtful gift for frequent travelers or just for the person who loves to be or needs to be more organized.
These are not only great b/c packing cubes are seriously the best, but also b/c of the compression feature for these little bad boys. I cannot say that enough— those magic vacuum bags might have a run for their money with these. The set comes with so much stuff, and these are super durable. I had packing cubes in the past that if you tried to stuff to much, the seams would start to rip. Not so with these. Highly recommend.
Love these so much! I’m going to Europe for a month and was worried about how to fit everything in my checked bag. I got these and tested them out. Each pic has the same amount of items in it:3 pants, 3 shorts, 2 skirts, 1 legging10 shirts3 kimonos4 dresses6 spaghetti strap shirts4 pairs of shoesI folded the clothes without the bag smart both folded and rolled over. I’m sure I could have folded the clothes to fit more space but then I risk wrinkly items. As you can see packing with bagsmart has way more room leftover and it makes for easy unpacking/repacking. Def buying another set!
I saw other compression bags made of plastic but wanted something more durable and sustainable. These work very well and were easy to use. I was able to pack a week’s worth of clothing into my under-seat bag, including an extra pair of shoes. I tend to travel light and wash in the sink, but this is the first time I’ve been able to get everything into the under-seat bag. The sipper seems very smooth and the material and seams look strong. I especially love the color. I expect these will last for years while I find that plastic bags eventually develop holes or tears. Stronger plastic bags are too thick and take up too much room.
