I bought these last year for my 6 week trip.
Very handy to put the socks and jocks in 1 and shirts in the large one.
Makes it easy to grab what is needed from the suitcase and then put back in without re-packing the whole bloody thing.

Yeah I'm a convert to them and Packing Folders for my shirts and other things I don't want crushed. I wouldn't travel any other way now - whether overnight or on an international trip.

I was the one originally looking for the Ikea packing cubes a while back, but ended up buying a bunch of Kathmandu cubes when they were dirt cheap on Ebay a while back.

I saw one of the folders you have linked to in a local op shop, and couldn't bring myself to buy it (at $3!) as I wasn't sure of the usage reason for it. I don't often travel for work, so wouldn't need many work type shirts - but do they work well for t's and short sleeved shirts?

That would have been it! Sorry I couldn't remember.

Yes, probably even better in some ways as less space taken up by sleeves. Just make sure that it is large enough for your shirts. They have changed sizes it seems and the new sizing is getting a lot of complaints.

Not sure how to tell which version was in the Op Shop, but for $3 I picked it up to try. Got to say that board in the middle of it gives it quite a heft, and weight can be an issue when flying in Australia and Asia.

Think it's the older version

Looks the goods to me!

286g for the large one I have I think from the website - worth it though to keep things relatively crease free

Finally found a label indicating size on it - looks like mine is the small size at 15" - but still says it should be good for 7 shirts. Will have a play and see how it goes
