Rated 5 out of 5 by RPec Great for long or short trips.
They were so helpful on my Europe trip, so I ordered an additional set for my wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maxchop These making packing simpler
These are terrific for packing, especially for business travel where you need to take dress shirts, but not only. And they are especially useful if you are going to be in an out of your suitcase frequently as they allow you to take things out in pre-organized groups without disurbing everything. The double sided is handy for separating clean from dirty without increasing bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chip2010 Excellent travel accessory
A friend recommended this as a helpful accessory for any travel, but especially if you are on a tour and moving from hotel to bus, plane, etc. These are well made, just like our LLBean luggage, and coordinate perfectly. They are roomy enough to pack even larger clothing items, yet compact and fit in the suitcase. Very happy to add another quality luggage piece to our things.

My friend, who travels a lot, told me about these a little over a year ago, and I bought two sets. They worked so well on our first trip, that I bought a third set because I especially like the largest size for tops, slacks and my husband's dress shirts. We have used them on three major trips in the last year, and we're able to pack much more than we could without them, plus everything is in great shape when we unpack. Using the cubes makes the packing and unpacking process quick and easy. I don't even worry whether there will be drawers in our hotel room, because we can put the cubes on the floor if we need to, and we only remove the items we need. I've passed on the recommendation to several friends, and so far everyone who's tried them, loves them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by irishbarb Won't Leave Home Without My Cubes
Someone had recommended these for an overseas trip so I bought them but I was not sure I was going to benefit from them. Was I wrong! These were great! I used the large for capris that I wanted to stay organized and ironed, the medium for tops, and the small for underwear. My only problem? I wish I'd had a second set. I was able to keep my clothes separated and I knew if TSA needed to go through my bag, I was not going to have someone rummaging through my bag and making a mess of it. I was able to unpack quickly because everything was already categorized. When going home, I knew what was dirty and what was clean. The bags are designed so that you can repack them on the other side so that clean and dirty are separated. I'm ordering more after this review, including some for gifts. What a great idea!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLCornAndBeans Great travel convenience
Despite testimonials from relatives and friends, I wasn't convinced that packing cubes could make much of a difference. But I'll never travel without my new LL Bean packers again! I took them on a trip to Europe with four different hotels on the itinerary. These bags made it so easy to grab what I needed, keep track of worn vs. unworn, and repack repeatedly. The large bag fit perfectly in my carryon, and held pants and skirts. I would have preferred that the mid-sized and small bags be a bit larger (especially the middle one, for shirts). I also wished I had a clear window in the non-mesh side, so I could see what clean clothes were inside. (You can see the dirty clothes through the mesh, of course, but that doesn't help you take inventory of what's still available.) It would also be great if the different sizes were sold separately, so I could get extras of the smaller sizes.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this packing system. Especially like that they are double sided. ...one for clean clothes and the other for dirty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hawk4 Not as good as the old packing cubes
These packing cubes work as described and are well made. They are just okay compared to the old style L.L.Bean packing cubes. The capacity is not there. The solid side does not hold much. There is no handle and they are a little smaller. PLEASE bring back the old style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HAPPYONTHECAPE Good but not as good as former 'packers'
The packers help keep items organized and when at your destination, they can remain in the compartments or can be emptied and will be pre-sorted.
However, I don't particularly care for the two-sided option and preferred the packers LLBean carried in the past (5 - 10 years ago). The sides had more structure and I felt they were sturdier although still soft sided and easily stored.
It does help keep items organized and packing simplified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilyna Double Sided Packers a winner
My initial thought was, another item to lug around but they looked interesting so II bought a set for my daughter in law who travels extensively and asked her opinion. She said they were perfect. She was able to separate her clothing and cosmetics and stow them in her hotel room with ease. So I bought another set for myself- I used them on a cruise- and unpacking was quick and efficient. used the larger one for pants, medium for tops and small for undies. They are sturdy and don't really add any weight.I then purchased another for my husband.
