Good for the price
20 May 2015
Received them today and fair enough for a cheap price you're not going to get outstanding material and great needlework on the binding that will stand the test of time. To be fair it looks cheap. But you will get an item that does what it says with metal zippers.
I was little worried that they would rip at the seams like another reviewer but they haven't so far and if they do I will update.
It is a cheap way to test if packing cubes are for you instead of shelling out a load of money because the branded ones are not cheap.
The large one is currently holding 2 jeans, a thick hoodie, night wear, a belt and 4 vest tops. The medium is holding 5 tops including a light jumper and it could have held my 4 vest tops. However de to my suitcase they had to go in the large. And the small is perfect for my underwear including socks.
My one tip is to fold items instead of rolling. I'm an avid roller but to fit more in you have to fold. Maybe not so with trousers or jeans (although i did fold them cause it's only 2) but tops and underwear yes. Alternate the folds. As in the first item is folded, then the next item is folded with the fold in the opposite direction and so on so that the bundle is flatter.
Great product for the price. I'm a changed woman to packing cubes now and when these ones have given up I'll buy a more expensive brand.
So I used the cubes for a week and I didn't have any tears or rips in the frabic. I did use all 3 and the medium was useful for 3 days of clothes to my friends house. That included 2 jeans, 3 tops, 3 vests, underwear and socks. You can fit so much in there. On the way home I was easily able to put all my dirty clothes in the large cube for easy separation.
I'm going away for weekend again and I'm only taking the medium for my small suitcase.
I'm glad I purchased these for the money and based on my original review I won't be buying more expensive ones. These do the job perfectly.
