Hubby has a smaller 22 inch and a small duffle so we can travel much lighter than in years past. Give these bags a try you'll be glad you did. One other thing, I purchase the spray wrinkle release and pack it in the checked bag. Once onboard I take the clothes out hang them up, give them a squirt of the spary and by the time I need to wear it the wrinkles are gone.
Are you referring to the bags that you vacuum all the air out of to condense them? If so how do you repack to come home? I have thought about doing this and wondered if the steward would loan me a vacuum to pack my clothes!
