Why is this a good deal? 💰

If you already have your vacation all planned out, there's no time to waste — now is the time to snag this deal. We haven't seen the price of these cubes this low in months, and we only expect it to go up from here.

Why do I need this? 🤔

If packing for a trip tends to be a bit of a chore for you, packing cubes can come in handy. They help keep things tidy and organized while you travel, but these doodads take packing a step further with their compression feature. It lets you flatten the cubes a bit more to take up less space in your luggage.

Each compression cube has an extra zipper on the outside that can be zipped up to flatten the cubes. It works similarly to a vacuum sealer, just without all of the extra tools. Want to know how it's done? After you fold your clothes and flatten them, pack them into the cube and zip the standard zipper. Put a finger on the back of the zipper in the space when compressing the packing cube just in case the zipper gets stuck in the fabric. Zip it all the way around and you'll notice that the cube is visibly flatter.

This particular set comes with four standard compression packing cubes in various sizes (small to extra large), a slim compression bag and a shoe bag.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 14,000 shoppers say these packing cubes have made traveling so much easier for them — even flight attendants and other flight crew members can't stop raving about them.

Pros 👍

"I'm a flight attendant and these are my go-to packing cubes," one professional flyer wrote. "These expand and make packing easy. Also, aesthetically [they] look good. I like how these can expand if needed."

Another flight attendant said she loves these because they "keep my suitcase organized and packed tight" while another said they help him "pack more efficiently." "I love that I can compress it down to a smaller pack once the clothes are inside," the same shopper added.

A pilot even gave her two cents, adding that she doesn't travel without these compression packing cubes. "I am a pilot and travel a lot," the reviewer wrote. "In hotels 14-16 nights a month and seldom in the same hotel for more than one night. These bags (bought two sets) keep me organized, save time packing and unpacking, and keep my clothes wrinkle-free."

Cons 👎

While some shoppers love them, one said they wish there was a clear vinyl pocket outside of each bag "to label the contents." The same shopper added, though, that "a roll of masking tape and a Sharpie worked just fine."

Also, if you pack a lot, take it from this shopper: get the set of six over the set of four. And for those who always need a little extra storage, but don't need another full set, this reviewer said it would be nice if the brand "had options for purchasing additional larger cubes."

For those looking for both a pop of color and a more compact quantity (without the shoe bag), this four-piece set is right up your alley.
