I use these anywhere I go - they are awesome. The clothes really arent too badly wrinkled, but I always take some of the downy wrinkle releaser with me just in case, or hang the clothes in the bathroom as I shower and that takes care of the minor wrinkles.
I actually roll my clothes and then put them in the bags and it saves tons of room.

I also love to use them. Bought a package of 4 of them at Bed, Bath and Beyond in 2 different sizes. That don't make your luggage any lighter however ........

Not to be the lone dissenter here, but I've tried the bags with little success. I've found that they can be useful for suctioning the air out of sweaters, pillows, and blankets, but when I've tried to use them with less fluffy fabrics, like khakis, denim, cotton, etc., it doesn't really save me much space, since there isn't much air in the fabric to suction out. I ended up throwing them away. Still, they weren't that expensive, and although they didn't work for me, they've apparently worked for others, so I guess it doesn't hurt to give them a shot. Hope they work for you!

You don't need to spend the big $$$ on the "official" space saver bags unless you need a really big one for a pillow !!! Zip Lock bags, esp. the 2 gallon size -- work just as well. Fold clothes neatly (I use a piece of cardboard the size of the bag as a guide), slide your garment in, zip from sides toward the middle leaving about an inch open, then put the cardboard on top of the bag and use it to press the air out, then seal the last inch. Very little wrinkling -- but, as many have said, it just removes the air, not the weight!
Does make packing a lot easier -- and keeps your clothes packaged for the luggage searchers in the airports -- they like it better and I like knowing my clothes are sealed in bags.
