I purchased the first set for travel to a formal family occasion. Suit was packed in the folder. It stayed there overnight because spouse was so tired to unpack. The suit stayed wrinkle-free the next morning. With starter set, luggage is organized making retrieval of items convenient. I wonder if mesh and silnylon can be sewn together making it easier to see what items are inside. The opening of cubes should be wider. Right now, zipper stops about few inches from the other corner. A young family member who saw my first purchase got so excited ( and this is not an excitable person) and wanted a set. I got 2 more sets.

Getting ready for an overseas trip and wanted to add one more shirt to garment folder -- while unpacking, velcro detached from threads. Now the pack wont close tightly in that plane because the velcro is detached. Disappointed in this item -- contacted customer support and they said it was likely a "one off" problem but too bad it was a "one off" problem on my set.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter™ Starter Set:

    I have the same problem with this as I do with the 3-cube set. There is no mesh window to be able to see the contents. Unless I'm always using the same cubes for the same clothing items, they won't work. I can't be opening each container every time I need to figure out if I need a t-shirt, or boxers, or socks, etc. I was told it's not possible to add a mesh window to this, like the older version of this product has.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter™ Starter Set:

    Love it! Admittedly rather expensive considering other much cheaper stuff sacks on the market, but undeniably convenient and absurdly lightweight. It really does make packing so much more organized. I have a stuff sack that is in between the two zip sacks in size. If time and convenience is your game, then yes, there is a difference and it is worth the buy. I also have some canvas zip sacks, which are definitely more durable, but also more clunky and less packable if maximizing every nook and cranny is your game. Haven't used the folder yet, but anticipating thorough satisfaction. Planning to get more for my family. I have young girls and I am so over searching for tiny socks and such.

              I travel frequently for work and I find that I keep everything short of the kitchen sink in my suitcase. This has made for a jumbled mess and an extremely heavy bag. Late one night I started reading some blogs by Rick Steves on packing. Eagle Creek products came up on his blog and in the comments. After checking out some videos and reader comments, I purchased this set. I love the pack-it board and the bags for organization. It is nice to finally have a plan for what needs to go where in my suitcase. The one drawback I see, these organizers and Eagle Creek could become addictive.

              Comments about Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter™ Starter Set:

              I own several Pack-It systems. I just bought the Specter Starter Set. Great lightweight cubes that when filled fit nicely into luggage to maximize the space, especially when packed with soft clothing items. I am a little skeptical about the durability, but time will tell.
              I particularly wanted the envelope because it was a lightweight option compared to my classic ones. I am disappointed with the placement of the Velcro tabs. The 2 sides are not attached to the envelope in a way that maximizes the contact of both sides. If you look closely at the photo, you see what I am talking about. If you do not stuff the envelope, you will not have much space saving compression. This is because the Velcro strips on interior flaps will barely touch. On the exterior flap Velcro, the loop strip is very long, but useful for compression only if you over fill. The fuzzy Velcro side runs across the envelope, so the attachment to the loop side is not maximized. In my experience, despite the lack of contact, the envelope holds together and does not open. I will probably sew additional Velcro strips (loop side) to my envelope. EC has very thoughtfully designed products. I'm curious why this particular product was designed this way. The classic envelopes are not like that.
