Default how to pack everything in a pilots case

I tried 3 diferent methods for packing. I used 2 gallon ziplock bags with the air squeezed out, the rolling method, and the bundle packing method found on packinglight.com. I was able to pack,in a pilots case, 5 pair shoes, socks and lingerie, 6 pair of pants, and 8 tops, and snorkeling equipment for 3 people by using the bundle method. This really works!
I wasn't even near to getting everything in by using the other methods.
Just thought I would share this info with you.

Default bundle packing

LisaK,
The clothes that were the most inside of the bundle had a few wrinkles on their outer edges, but the clothes that were on the outer layers of the bundle were virtually wrinkle free. Good luck packing!

Default all in 1 bag ??

wow, you are the '' super-packer''. i dont think i could do that for myself .

i use the bundle method also and it works great for me too. and making mini bundles of one days clothes on the top is a great way to get an outfit out easily and use for the hotel activities the night before the cruise.

this method is where you lay the clothes in the bag a certain way and then fold them up and over each other. go to magellans.com and they have a link to the packing method. i use it all the time and only have one or two wrinkles. i carry a small spray bottle of wrinkle releaser to use if i have any at all.
