Ideal for light/occasional use
on 30 May 2017
Overall, I am a fan of these bags.
I use them primarily for air travel. I have carried everything from light, bulky items (such as bedding, clothes) to large, heavier items (the bag is a perfect size for a baby travel cot). They work best when packed full or close to full.
They compress to an incredibly small size, such that you won't notice them in your regular luggage (they will also fit comfortably in a regular size laptop bag).
The material is lightweight but robust - it doesn't feel like it would tear easily. Likewise the seams are strong and don't feel like they will come apart.
However, the zippers are of poor quality. The pull tabs and/or crowns are flimsy and break too easily (either when you are trying to close a very full bag or when it is being knocked about in transit). In my case, this has resulted in the sliders staying attached to the zippers so the bags are still usable, but it is an inconvenience. If the manufacturer would fit sturdy zips (for the main zip if nothing else), then this would be a five-star product.
Complaints about the zip aside, I would recommend these bags (I am about to buy some more to replace the originals which are now in the hands of friends/family members). They are great for occasional air travel and ideal for loading in the boot/roof box when you want to avoid using rigid luggage.
