Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for carry-on luggage I've found the medium size works best for carry-on roll-aboards. They fit well into the usual 22"X14" case. You can put about 4 shirts into one medium bag. If you fold your clothes carefully and flat, they don't wrinkle up and in fact are protected from scrunching by the stiff shrink-wrap. Allows you to cram more into a carry-on, especially bulky cold weather clothes like sweaters. Works well and the material seems rugged. The closure is a zip-lock so the yellow band is only a convenience item to make it easier to seal up. It does pop off once in a while, but is non-essential and to replace it you just thread it back on. Takes about 2 seconds. The large size is more "suitable" for checked luggage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but cab puncture and tear. This is simple and effective. But be careful when packing the compressed items; you cannot put them on the bottom of a duffel bag where they could get punctured during careless handling or tossing aroud in a cargo hold. Makie sure you put something solid around it. On the plus side, you can simply use some good packing tape on the outside to fix any small holes, but be sure to clean the area with isopropyl alcohol before you apply any tape and make sure it is COMPLETELY FLAT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool! My husband and I picked up a pack of these tonight and played with them in preparation for my two month trip between two very different climates. I found the medium bags to be the most useful. The large ones are best used for a large, flat suitcase, which is not what I'm going to be bringing with me. The clothes, we found, flatten best when they're folded flat instead of wadded up. If you do have a flat suitcase, I found that it was very effective to get as much air out without rolling the bag/clothes, then stand on top of it with a flat surface. This produced a very flat and packable result. Do it at your own risk though! You'd want to make sure that you didn't burst the bag. I have no problem with the zipper… it seriously isn't hard to get the yellow tab back on if it comes off. Just slide it back on the end? I'd take them off the bag after its all closed up and store them somewhere they wouldn't be lost during transit. It does do amazing things for fluffy items! Wool and dense fabrics aren't as good, but overall, I had a lot more room in my suitcase after using the bags. I was able to pack almost everything that I needed for my trip between all three bags. I'll get another set of 3 so I can put less in each bag, which allows for more effective packing. I hope that they'll be durable, but honestly, if they'll save me the trouble of checking luggage for my upcoming trip, they'll have more than paid for themselves. Overall, when I used the bags, I had a lot more room in my suitcase left over. That space could easily be filled by many things! The pictures are the same items, first condensed into the small, medium and large bags, then just folded in the suitcase. Judge for yourself if they're the best choice for you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yellow Slider Fall Off Easily I used this product on a tour of the Philippines and Vietnam both in my airplane/bus luggage and my backpack for hiking in the jungle. It does work in compacting travel gear easily due to the one way vents on the end, but the yellow slider fell off with light field use and subsequently during airline travel. This is more than a nuisance as losing this small piece in light airplanes could have jammed controls if it fell in the wrong place. Furthermore, the watertight integrity was compromised by this piece routinely falling off. Don't expect to use this for actual waterproofing in the field. I'm going to limit future use to just normal travel to compact clothes and afford some water resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from space saver! These space saving bags are really excellent for backpacking, car camping and flying. I have used them on several trips and LOVE them! I usually start out by packing one or two with clean clothes and then as things get dirty I start another one to keep things separate. I read reviews that said the yellow slide fell off a lot and while I haven't experienced that I agree that it's not critical to the functionality of the bag if that was to happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Compression Bags for Multiple Uses Bought these bags to use while traveling and they worked perfectly. They don't require a vacuum or hand pump to get the air out - just roll and squeeze or lie them flat and press the air out. They are great quality as I have tried the cheaper brands from other stores which don't hold up. They do wrinkle clothes since it's a compression bag but depending on fabric, most wrinkles with come out when clothes are hung up. You can use on wool but wrinkles do not come out unless you dry clean. Great for down and polyester products such as outdoor jackets, vests, etc. Can definitely get 50% more into a suitcase with these bags!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Concept!!! Superb quality in the materials allow these compressible bags to retain their strength under excessive compression. Easy to use. A usual suitcase full of clothing was able to accomodate twice the amount (if not more) without having someone sit on it while zipping up. TSA inspectors have to love not have things explode (pun intended) out of overly compressed baggage when doing searches. Price may be a bit more than competitor products, but the material strength is worth the pennies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Bulky Items Wow! My husband and I are heading out on a beach vacation soon and I am determined to learn to pack smarter. Since we will be flying getting everything, including beach towels, into our carry on luggage seemed impossible. Enter Eagle Creek. A Rick Steves blog suggested them. I ordered these bags thinking I didn't have much to lose. I was wrong. I lost a ton of bulkiness in my suitcase. I put two beach towels in the the large bag and followed the directions. POW! Flattened them down to a quite manageable size. Thank you, Eagle Creek.
