Great for travelling! Gets a lot of stuff into a small piece of luggage.

Student prime members get an additional 15% off. Anyone used these and find them more than just a gimmick? Tempted.

I've got different sets but they've been extremely useful whenever I've been traveling. Would recommend

Good to know. They have the 4 large ones or 2 medium and 2 large. What sizes do you use? Thanks.

We use them all the time. Great as you can separate clean from dirty washing on the return leg. Also good for storing if you are in a hotel with limited storage - undies in one etc.

Good idea. However I prefer to use airtight compression bags. The waterproof hiking style ones.

Fill, sit on, squash out air, seal and pack. Saves bulk, keeps dirty clothing sealed and makes for more room in bag/case.

Can you pass a link to the product Pls... There are loads of them on Amazon. But the reviews r not tht great

ordered - thank you OP

Seems like one of those products which are meant as a solution to a problem which doesn't exist. The three fatal flaws I see with it are:

1) Odds on filling each box with 100% efficiency, and then each box fitting your case with 100% efficiency, are poor. You're pretty much unavoidably going to waste space with these things, and that can mean the difference between your holiday gear being free cabin-baggage, or paid-for (or surcharged-for) hold luggage.

2) They add 570g to your suitcase. You usually only have around a 10KG allowance for cabin baggage, so this is a fairly hefty chunk of weight capacity to lose, especially if your packing normally takes you near the limit. Plus, it's just a bit of a pain to have to carry more weight than you need to.

3) They make it take longer to pack and unpack, and make it harder to check that you've packed everything.


I'm not sure what the benefits would even be. The only suggestion I've seen in this thread is that they're handy for keeping dirty clothes apart from clean ones, but I suspect that one might only be valid if you live in a universe in which carrier bags haven't been invented. So, yeah - cold from me.

One small problem. In a world of recycled carrier bags. Make sure last weeks pants bag isn’t used for the fresh fruit next shop

Can’t get the link right. Look up Karrimor Waterproof Dry/Storage Bag. I don’t have a Karrimor one but that kind of idea.

So wrong! They are brilliant. I use them every time I travel and makes packing / unpacking so much quicker. At the hotel just put the packing cube in the drawer - unpacking done. They are literally one of the best things for travelling. Especially if you travel from place to place. Pack a different cube for each leg / hotel stop, leave the rest in the case (or often car). Love mine!

I'm with dxx on this one. Useful, yes. But you have more bulk to contend with and wasted space around each cube. The added weight is the difference between packing in another valued item or not at all.

These make more sense is you visit many locations in a short period, keep better control of your stuff, unpack only what you need while the rest remain tidily packed.

I use smaller size similar to these, so they keep shape better, when backpacking. If I want to reach smth near the bottom of my rucksack, I can do it in seconds while before I had to pull everything out. The same, when I get somewhere to spend the night, I can unpack and re-pack everything the next day very quickly, with less of a chance to leave something behind.

I travel on business a lot, if you pack carefully with these, you'll get a lot more in your bags than loose or in stuffed carrier bags. I typically use several sizes, the large is pretty much the size of a carry-on. I don't believe they weigh 515g perhaps that's the weight of all 4 large, in which case when full, is most likely more than a single carry-on.

There is no such thing as a 'usual' weight limit for carry-on bags, this link gives a good selection tripsavvy.com/car…874 the airlines I normally fly either have 23kg or unlimited.

They most certainly do not make it any harder to check you've packed everything, if anything they allow you to be more organised and make sure you have packed everything. If using bigger packing bags, I tend to group items together. Perhaps if you travel infrequently you won't find a benefit, I certainly do. As for taking it longer to unpack, seriously, you're going to worry about the 12s it takes to undo the extra zips? If you're worrying about this, how on earth do you cope with security and all the other experiences you get when traveling?

These may not be for everyone and their usefulness is also dependent on your luggage size (it's useful to have a selection of sizes) and what you're trying to take - they're no good for shoes, but I find them very useful. I even use a couple in my laptop bag to organise all those cables, travel mouse and chargers.
