I had never heard of packing cubes, but in buying a new bag, found that they seemed to be the "next big thing". I wondered what their allure and advantage were over Space Bags, so thought I'd give one a whirl for less than $4 on sale at STP. The bag is super light, so for a trip where I was trying to save weight - that would be a plus. I used mine this time for tolietries. I liked that I could pull the cube out of my bag and have the liquids in one quart bag and other stuff in another plastic bag inside. The carrying handle is a great feature of the cube. Without it, it would not be so great because the cube is just fabric with no structure, so the handle is a big plus when carrying it around with items inside. Im not sure how useful a cube would be for clothes, as it does not compress like a Space Bag, but is lighter weight. This half cube would fit some underwear and two-three small shirts, but not a lot. Overall, I still have to be won over by the concept of cubes for packing, but this one performed well as a tolietry bag of zero weight.

The whole family of Eagle Creek pack-its make organizing for a trip a snap.I own a bunch of these products.Not only are you organized when you reach your destination(s) but I find the EC pack-its make me organized when I'm packing before the travel. Highly recommended. They also make great gifts.

I have these in the white, but wanted one that would not be as translucent. The beet color is a bit wowzie for me, so I am returning. I bought another size in the ocean blue. It is a gorgeous turquoise blue! I don't know if it is my computer screen or the website pictures. I appreciate when reviews include color comments.
