The Eagle Creek Pack-It Compression sac is one of my must-have travel items and one of the best compression bags for travel. Eagle Creek Compression bags can be used for a variety of purposes, but for me, it’s the perfect laundry bag when traveling.
Have you ever struggled to close your suitcase or backpack after piling your laundry into your suitcase? If so, this is definitely the bag for you. The beauty of this bag is it’s ability to vent out the air, keeping your stuff (in my case dirty clothes) compressed and compact.
Ease of Use
The bag is like a gigantic ziplock bag, but it has one-way vents at the very bottom. This allows the air to flow out as you roll the sack. To use the bag, all you need to do is seal the top by moving the plastic zipper across the top, then slowly rolling the sack so the air pressure flows out of the sack. Eventually, you’re left with a very compact load that fits nicely into a suitcase or backpack.
The compression sack is available in two sizes and comes in a variety of kits and sets. I personally bought the set containing both the medium and large bag, and have used both depending on the length of my trip.
Makes a Great Travel Laundry Bag
I’ve seen people use packing cubes designed for laundry. I haven’t used them yet, but I love using the Eagle Creek compression bag as my travel laundry bag. Also, I find that the compression sac works well with wet and extremely stinky clothes. Since the bag is practically airtight, the doesn’t leak out or stink up the rest of my clean clothes.
