    The product comes bundled, so that if you want the cube, you also get the half-cube. The first is what I wanted, because it fits fairly efficiently into the compartment of my Tarmac AWD 22 (as shown in the diagram that EC provides for its Pack-It system). The half-cube I haven't figured out what to do with. Not sure what I would compress in it, and the size doesn't seem to work well with other Pack-It components, given the size of the luggage. If I could have just bought the full cube, I probably would have gotten two. But I didn't want to pay to get two half-sizes that I don't need, so I just bought the one.

    I do think the quality is good, I like the lightweight material, and the compression feature. I agree with other reviewers who say that it would be better if the compartment zipper opened further. I also think it would be helpful if the two zippers were more easily distinguished.

    I am traveling to Iceland and was looking for a compression cube that would help me pack tightly. I like these cubes and they work well except for the compression side. I packed them full, which is what I'd expect to do, but they were so difficult to close. The zippers would get stuck on the fabric and would not close without a fight. I'll use them as regular cubes, without the compression feature.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter™ Compression Cube Set:

      We have been using Eagle Creek bags for tears. We have worn out, thankfully, their older, heavier bags. Now we use their newer, lighter, almost indestructible models. This review is about their compression cubes. The airlines are lowering the weight allowances every year, so we had to go,lighter, sort of. We are also photographers and are not quite ready to give up our DSLRs. The compression cubes allow me pack lightweight underwear. I use different colors for different items so I can identify which I need to use and what to put in our hotel dressers. We also carry a few spare compression cubes for dirty laundry. Color coding allows me to not make a mistake. One very important zipper closing technique. Put your ring finger under the zipper as you close the cube. That way you won't catch the zipper on the cloth. Follow it all the way round and you will be surprised at how much compression is achieved. We also wash the cubes in delicate clothes bags so the do not accumulate odors.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter™ Compression Cube Set:

        I used these two for socks, underwear, and some light turtlenecks that I wear under sweaters. I love that they compacted so well, and that I didn't have to uncompact them to get to the interior. Along with the starter set (for packing shirts and sweaters, and two other cubes), I was able to pack for three weeks in Southern Spain and Morocco in a 23" suitcase. This included clothes for temperatures in range from 50s to mid 70s. There were four of us in a small European SUV, and being able to pack in a smaller bag was a plus. I'm now a convert. Came home, emptied them out, repacked some of them into a duffle bag to go a day later to The Keys for a week.

          Comments about Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter™ Compression Cube Set:

          The Compression Cube Set was a gift to me for a trip my family and I went on but I have found that these can be used for so much more. We live in an area that we have different clothes for Winter and Summer so in the Fall and Spring I pack and un-pack the items for the Seasons. These have turned out to be so much better than plastic boxes or those so called compression pack away systems you suck the air out of with your vaccuum. These look good, are high quality and do what they are supposed to. I am now using them for more than just our seasonal clothing also. They are WONDERFUL for household organization with bedding, and so much more! I could go on for a good hour going through what I am using them for, but won't in this review. You get the point, I love them! And I highly recommend them for travel and home!

                        I wish the zipper went totally around the bag for easier packing. The bags compress beautifully - I just returned from a five day trip with extreme weather conditions (-15 to 85). I was able to get all my clothing into the compact bags (I have three sets). The clothes did not wrinkle, bags easily identifiable to what items were in each of the bags. The bags packed nicely in a small carry on piece of luggage.

                          I read in some reviews that people complained that the zipper gets caught.. However, if you run a finger between the fabric and the zipper as you are closing the bag you will solve the issue.
                          The compression sacs are very handy. I did purchase the blue ones and just ordered more in the white so I could see the continents better.
