Rated 4 out of 5 by ShopsSmarttoo Great item for travel!
These packers are great if you want your luggage/carry-on bag to have extra space and be organized. The only thing I would've preferred is a handle to easily grab out. For that, I rate it 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazy4LLBEAN Double sided packers
One of my friends bought these and raved about them. This is one of those items that you may not use that often but when you need them - they are GREAT! I don't travel but about once a year - but will love using them in my floral other name brand travel bag. LL Bean makes everything to last - love the quality of their products! I recommend these for all travelers! I got the flint - such a great neutral color!

Rated 2 out of 5 by xfitchick Please Bring Back the Original Version!
While I completely appreciate being able to separate my clean and dirty clothes, I REALLY miss the larger compartments available with the prior version. This version is perfect for my business travel but doesn't fit my needs for family travel. Not enough room and I miss being able to pick and choose my sizes. I still bought this version for personal travel but am lamenting not stocking on up on the prior version!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurenDA Great product, I highly recommend them!
This is a great product, I had the first generation and bought more since they worked so well. I travel a lot for work (4-6 months/year) and these keep my clothes flat and orderly. I love the new feature that separates the items into two vertical compartments within the packers - I thought this would be superfluous, but it's very handy and helps me access my accessories and different types of clothing faster (professional dresses vs casual, pants vs skirts, tees versus blouses). I highly recommend this product and I'm planning on buying a few for friends and family soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarlboroSue These are great
We love these for traveling. No more worries about items falling out when TSA open up our luggage. We travel with duffel bags a lot and it keeps our clothes very organized. Are in Peru for 3 weeks and bought a 3rd set for chargers and misc items. Highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carioca62 Sell them seperately?
I have been living with these for many many years and could not live wtihout them. I am travelling a lot and I can only survive with these bags. I however noted over the years that I need the large ones much more then the small ones... Why can't LLBean not sell them separately? If I need more of the large ones, i have to buy the whole set and the small and medium ones i don't use..! Waste of resources..

Rated 5 out of 5 by sassiecat I'm sold on Packers
I bought these because I like things organized. And, because they were double sided, I felt they would also serve as built in laundry storage. Great performance on both counts. What I didn't figure on was that using the packers would result in my suitcase being MORE efficiently packed - and with room to spare! I used the small for undies & socks, the medium for all shirts of a certain type and the large for pants/shorts and woven shirts (I went to New Orleans, where, even though lighter clothing is the norm, the humidity and amount of activity required more frequent clothing changes). The largest packer was only slightly longer than was optimum for my medium sized bag (from the Microlight collection - which, with the zipper being located 1/3 of the depth requires thoughtful packing. However, that is my only complaint about that luggage set, they are otherwise perfect for my needs - especially the tote which is as large as an underseat suitcase), but I only need to turn up the very end of the packer and it slipped in easily. I had room for all my clothes, travel umbrella, liquids in excess of what would fit in my TSA carry on, a couple of pairs of shoes, and ALL the souveniers I bought. Best of all, when I got home, all I had to do was unzip the side of each packer that held my dirties and let the clothes drop into the laundry hamper. In six weeks I go to Pittsburgh for a week and three weeks after that I am off to Ireland for 2 weeks - where my tour will be changing hotels 7 times in 10 days - and these packers are going with me - even my New Orleans hotel roomie commented on how organized I was in being able to stow my used clothing seperate from the clean stuff every day. I count this among the smartest purchases I have ever made - very few other travel product vendors have double sided packers, especially at this price.

I am 100% satisfied with this recent purchase! These double sided packers reduced the clutter in my duffle and kept clothes neat and basically unwrinkled. They are especially helpful on trips or tours with one to two night stands. In an attempt to keep luggage to a minimum when flying, these packers allowed me extra room. I wish I could buy them individually, though, as I could use a couple more of the mid size packer. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Davidstraveler Great for a trip
I have not used these packers yet but have looked them over carefully and they seem to be exactly what I need for an upcoming trip to Europe in 1 1/2 months. They should help me greatly. They were highly recommended to me by my daughter-in-law. I even purchased a second set for a relative.

For more than 20 years I averaged more than 150,000 miles per year in travel. One of the ways I survived all that travel was understanding how to pack - these little bags were my secret. With a bit of planning you can put in things like dress shirts and slacks that will arrive without a wrinkle. Friends would be amazed at how small a bag I could pack for a trip - the secret was these organizers.
When I originally began to travel a lot I bought a set of the blue bags - they last all those miles and all that time. I recently bought a new set. There were two changes. First, the material that they are made out of is a bit more sturdy. But second, they now have two sides. So you can pack upper and lower. They are also slightly larger. The concept is still the same.
