I just recently purchased a number of Eagle Creek Pack-It cubes in different colors and sizes to use for travel. I had heard good things about the brand and packing system, and as someone who likes to be organized, I figured I would give them a shot.
Although I haven't taken any trips yet, I have been using the 2-sided half cube for my daily runs after work. I have been packing my running clothes in one side, and a change of clothes--for my sweaty, post-run, subway commute back home to shower--in the other side. Once I have changed into my running clothes, my work clothes get tucked into the now empty pocket, and post-run I swap out my fresh clothes for my sweaty running ones. So far, so good! I like that I can keep my dirty/clean clothes separate, and my super sweaty running clothes away from my slightly worn work clothes, all in one little bag. The materials and construction appear to be high quality, and I expect this bag to last me a long time.
The only reason I am giving the bag 4 stars instead of 5, is that I wish it was a wee bit bigger. I get that this is part of a bigger packing system, but sometimes one outfit is a bit bulkier, and the bag gets to be a bit overstuffed. This may just be me trying to cram way to much stuff in, but just an extra inch or two would help me out (also, I am a pretty tiny person--wearing size XS/S in women's sizes, and I would imagine people who wear larger sized clothes could also use a little more space). When fall comes and I have more/bulkier layers of clothes, I might have to upgrade to a larger sized cube.
Overall, I have been really happy with this purchase. STP had the best prices I could find, and I would recommend them, and this product to anyone.

Can't beat the price of these eagle creek packing cubes. At first I thought the 2 sided was silly, but it actually is great for keeping things like socks and underwear organized with clean on one side and dirty on other. I periodically go through customs with coworkers and everyone has a laugh when someone gets the red light and has to have their luggage tossed open and pillaged through in front of coworkers of the opposite sex. I don't think customs will need to open these up as they are sheer enough to see through and soft enough to tell there is nothing but clothing in them. Great for keeping your suitcase organized!

great for tweenie sized items. I used to use bags I had made myself, but these look better. I bought one of each size available, as I couldn't decide which size would be best. I know I will use them all.

I bought 7 sets of the Small, Medium, Large and 2-sided half cube. Some sets are for family members, others are teacher gifts and Christmas gifts for my close friends. The kids have summer camps on the near horizon and these will help them stay organized when living out of a backpack.
Our family used our sets this last weekend when we went camping. We used the 2-sided half cube for our toiletries -- so nice to have it all in one place. We also used the large for our sleepwear, medium for undergarments and small for cameras and chargers.
The products are well made and just perfect for travel. I travel extensively and these will help me quite a bit going forward.
