The BAGAIL Compression Packing Cubes seal up clothes tight by squeezing out any excess air (like a space bag), so you can fit more clothes in your suitcase and keep everything organized. More than 3,800 Amazon shoppers swear by them and give them 5 out of 5 stars.
BAGAIL Compression Packing Cubes, $24.99–$31.99
“Best travel product ever!” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “It really condenses your clothing and makes so much more room in your luggage. I just got back from a 15-day trip using only a small carry-on suitcase, and I packed an amazing number of clothes into each of these. I have always traveled with packing cubes, but when I found these and the fact that they compress, wow, what a difference it made.”
Here’s how they work: First, fold your clothes neatly and put them in a stack. Then, put the stack of clothes into a packing cube and zip the normal zipper to close it up. Then, zip up the second outer zipper to compress.
The lightweight nylon bags will also protect your clothes in case your toiletries leak or your suitcase gets wet. And they’re TSA friendly.
“A must-have for travel,” wrote another Amazon reviewer. “I have gone the route of using the vacuum space savers … and then learned the very hard way [that] if TSA needs to inspect, they do not care and they expand the explosion of bulk and send it bursting to the cargo.”
You can get the BAGAIL Compression Packing Cubes in several different colors in a pack of four starting at $24.99 on Amazon. The brand also sells a six-pack starting at $31.99, and it comes with a handy shoe bag. (The price may vary based on color.)
So, the next time you want to pack all of your favorite outfits for vacation, you can. And you won’t have to sit on your suitcase to zip it shut.
