Has anyone ever used space bags to travel with? If so, does this prevent wrinkling? I realize it would take up much less space and I could possibly get everything in a carry-on. Also, is it better to roll clothing or to fold to prevent wrinkling?
Love space bags ! ! Depending on the size I use, I can put mine and DH "day" clothes in one, one bag for each day. I just lay them in to fit the bag and they come out well (depends on what fabric you travel with). After 4 cruises, I tend to stick with knits and peachskin for day time, and peachskin for nights (except formal); dockers for DH and take Downey Wrinkle Release. With security having to check stuff now, I feel better knowing that my clothes have not been touched by anyone else (anal I know, but that is me). Happy cruising ! !
When security checks your bags do they open the space bags? Also, what do you do when returning. I thought you suction the air out with a vacuum. I would be afraid I would not get everything back in my suitcase.

If youre sailing RCI, I know they have vacuums that have the hose attachments. My son loves those vacuums (named Henry-check it out on the side-they have a face painted on them-too cute). The vacuum bags work much better than the rolling the air out types. Do keep in mind though that although the space is increased when using the bags, the weight does to as you add more! This is important for flying as the weight limits have been reduced (I think about 50 lbs max per bag now).
Space bags are great for the underwear, sock, but they wrinkle the blouses and pants.
I use the ex large baggies, Zip lock,etc.
This is cheaper to use too.
Also, if you want to take your liquer on with you, put it is smaller plastic bottles, and into a zip lock bag. I like to pre mix up the long island ice tea, then just get a cola on board.
It sames space and weight.
the air lines and cruise lines would prefer that you use hard-side luggage.
I would like to suggest the Target space bag brand. I used both the original space bags and the Target brand. The Target brand is a better choice. Also, like the other responders stated. Large zip lock bags are great.
The clear bags make a quick inspection by the TSA's. Also, you will hear alot of them thanking you for using the clear bags
