Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought my latest cube to replace my old cube (previously reviewed)that my sister liked so much that she nabbed it to pack for her 6-month trip around Europe. That one has stood up very well to a year of heavy travel and this one should too. These pack-it cubes are phenomenal for packing a duffel bag without clothing sloshing around and getting wrinkled, and also for easily organizing within a suitcase when I'm sharing a hotel room with five other grad students at a conference. My clothes stay neatly folded and easy to find. This size holds eight shirts or five sweaters, and the half-cube size is great for socks and skivvies.

great, but bigger than expected

I ordered this hoping for something to keep my change of clothes from getting too mussed in my pack, and it ended up being bigger than I expected. So, in the picture I uploaded I fit all this into the packing cube:

swimsuit, board shorts, short-sleeved rash guard, spare bra/underwear, coverup dress, pak-towel, toiletries kit, sunscreen, headlamp, bandana, and teva flip-flops.

This, my friends, is a lot of stuff. I think I'll order the half-cube to fulfill my original purpose, but I'll hang on to this one too because I can see it being useful to segregate my personal gear from group gear for backpacking.
I gave it a four because I haven't seen how it will hold up to wear yet, but I'll bump it up to a five if it wears well.

What an awesome dress! Comfortable, cool, wears like iron. I only wish that it came in a shorter length, since I'm 5'4 and it comes below my knees. That would make it perfect. For the record, I weigh 105 and the XS fits great, maybe a bit loose in the chest area. The neckline's great - not too frumpy, not too low, and the armholes that people complain about fit my small shoulders beautifully.

I tried these on at the store and liked them, but the first time I wore them I cut my feet to bits and the toe-straps strangled my big toes. The fourth time I wore them I loved them.

Here's my biggest tip: tighten the straps to the tightness that seems intuitive, them give the straps an extra half inch to and inch. Since I've done that, and put band-aids on the top inside edge of my foot where the straps cross, these shoes have been great. I love the zebra aqua color! I can't wait to wear them hiking or canoeing, instead of just out on errands.
