I’m literally on hold with Carnival Cruises for a client (a friend really) who is currently delayed in Atlanta (due to weather) and running the risk of missing her cruise now. You may wonder who’s at fault and at this point … no one is. Things happen, weather happens, delays happen!!
You know what DOESN’T have to happen … increasing your risk of being late because you had to check a bag. A bag that you could’ve minimized by packing more efficiently and carrying on the plane. **BIG SIGH** I can think of 5011 girlfriends who need these … RIGHT NOW!!! Stop wasting time with regular packing cubes when you can use these simple and functional compression cubes, SAVE 50% MORE SPACE … and they’re cute!!!!
These Gonex Compression Packing Cubes, are so simple! They thoroughly impressed while traveling with a youngster, thanks to their extremely tough zippers that easily closed around our overpacked items. All you have to do is fill the cubes with clothes, close the top zipper, then squeeze out the air, and compress the bag with the center zipper that wraps around the sides.
It didn’t require any effort to quickly close the compression zippers which prevented air from getting back into the bag. The seams remained perfectly stitched and didn’t show any signs of wear and tear even after we stuffed them to the brim.
While I would consider the nylon material more water-resistant than waterproof after the bag was “introduced” to a little bit of rain, we still think they would protect clothes from condensation or dampness, especially if they’re also packed away in a suitcase.
This six-pack compression bag set comes in 23 color options, with a shoe (laundry) bag, slim (for your electronics), small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes so you can compress a variety of clothing from pants to jackets. I especially love that the bags have handles on the top making them easier to grab whether they’re in a suitcase, backpack or a weekender.
Number of bags included: 6 | Compressed dimensions: X-LARGE: 15.4×15×3.54in., LARGE: 11.8×9.1×3.54 in., MEDIUM: 9.8×7.5×3.54 in., SMALL: 7.9×5.9×3.54 in., SLIM: 3×3.9×3.54in., LAUNDRY/SHOE BAG: 18.1×13 in.
As far as my friend is concerned … she just landed in FLL. She will learn a hard lesson today. Packing a suitcase is a tedious task but compression packing cubes are an extremely useful travel hack to stay organized and maximize space. While traditional packing cubes are great for keeping items sorted, compression cubes can save even more precious room in a carry-on. Thankfully, she can order them from the Lido deck, while she sips her Tito’s and cranberry!!
