    That's really brilliant, although it might create lots of wrinkles, doesn't it?

    Depends on the clothes but this works with jeans and sweaters without wrinkling.

    For clothing I have tried (and liked) the Packing Folder and ones like it. You can fit quite a bit of clothing (3 shirts, slacks, trunks), relatively wrinkle free, into a smaller backpack with plenty of room to spare.

    How good do the shirts come out of the Eagle Creek folder? I need to take dress shirts and pants, but not a suit. Something more than a duffle, but less than a garment bag. They fit the bill?

    They work fine for me, The better care you take putting them in, the better the result. I think they are better than a garment bag for keeping them smooth.

    Totally agree. They'll show a couple of extra creases on the body and sleeves but still come out looking smart enough to wear straight away.

    Well, I've taken a few trips since I picked up my Ebag cubes and have had a chance to use them. I can definitely see a practical side to these things. I like the fact that everything stays in place and that the cubes are capable of a degree of compression. I haven't figured out a way to roll or fold my clothing to minimize wrinkles, but maybe in time.

    I do not travel very much, so I do not have many packing cubes. I do use zip locks to protect books, magazines, my electronic gear, cell phone, and some miscellaneous items.

    I use pouches for pens, lights, multi tools, and the like.

    One bag travel sites will help with this.
    They promote bundle packing.
    I personally just roll things, and then when I get to the place I'm staying immediately hang them up.
    Hanging them in the bath area during a steamy shower also helps relieve the wrinkles.
    Some hotels even provide an iron if the wrinkles are really bad.
    I have found that rolling produces less wrinkles that folding does.
