Almost Perfect

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I am a big traveler and like to organize my bag accordingly. The only thing that I will mark it down for is the quality of the zipper. The bag itself is great, but I fear the one day I pack it TOO much, it will fail. However, for nearly $9.00 you can't really go wrong.

A solid Meh.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have been using cubes like this for ages from just about everyone that makes them. No joke, I loves me some pack cubes. Now that Patagonia and the dead bird have them I guess BC decided to hop on that bandwagon. I used the medium in my ski bag to keep all the small stuff together, midlayer, base layers, 2 pairs of socks, 2 hats, balaclava, and gloves/liners, with space to spare. The waterproof base material is nice and will keep your stuff dry just in case you drop it in the snow or the ground is wet. Now, about that design: There is only one zipper pull, as in it's a one way zipper. The zipper wraps the majority of the top, so this means you have to open the whole thing if the item you wanted to quick grab was on the far side to the zipper. The zipper is undersized. This is likely the place this bag will fail if you overstuff them (lets be real, who doesn't). The zipper pull is a tiny bit of webbing tacked on and it kinda makes the whole bag feel cheap. I'd like to see a cord loop pull. The top mesh is a strange super stiff material, think screen door. Doesn't impact performance but it makes me wonder where they got it from. At full price, Hard No. At sale prices? Meh. Not really ready for prime time. Overall (TL;DR): They're good-ish. Like on par with the Amazon Basics pack cubes, but even those have dual entry zippers. Better to go with the gold standard here: Eagle Creek.

Simple, Non-Complicated, Necessary

I helped outfit my little sister for a semester abroad, backpacking in Chile. The only thing she regrets not taking my advice on bringing more of is packing cubes! The 8L fits all my t-shirts easily. It's an inexpensive no brainer purchase for the travller in your life. It's hard to explain to people who aren't already sold on packing cubes why they're so great unless they try them. I'll give it a shot though! For a minimal amount of added weight, you're saving quite a bit of spcae by compacting your clothes. This also reduces time spent digging through your backpack or luggage for what you need. I'm far from an organized individual and this makes me feel like I have my life together. It's a cheap purchase that reduces stress while traveling.
