Eagle Creek Translucent Specter Pack-It Compression Set


Product Information

Our Eagle Creek Specter Pack-It Compression Set lets you pack more in even less space. Simply pack one, close the interior zipper, then close the compression zipper to make it even more compact. Like our Eagle Creek Specter Pack-It System, it's made from a material similar to parachutes, so it weighs 50% less than our original Eagle Creek Pack-It system. Plus each features a quick-grab handle. Complements the Eagle Creek Pack-It System. Set includes one Cube (14" x 10" x 3" h) and one Half Cube (10" x 7" x 3" h).

  • 50% lighter than original Eagle Creek Pack-It
  • Made from water- and stain-resistant, material similar to parachutes
  • Oversized zipper pulls
  • Machine washable; line dry

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I've seen better Bought this and Eagle Creek Pack-It Vinyl & Mesh Compression Sacs at the same time for an upcoming trip to Iceland. I tried both on a bulky unisex medium sized Irish knit sweater and the other definitely compressed better. Pics below shows the before and after with larger bag used (sorry too inept to rotate). Would not buy this again. It was difficult to fit the sweater into this bag and I'm not so certain how useful the smaller bag would be. Would recommend the Eagle Creek Pack-It Vinyl & Mesh Compression Sacs over this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works better if you fold I bought these to use when flying with a carry-on suitcase to try to fit more clothes. I typically roll my clothes when I travel, and while these did compress some, I found that they were better if I folded the items I put inside them. I was able to fit the same amount of clothes in the cube folded as I was rolled, and the compression seemed to work better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from On the fence I use and like the Eagle Creek Specter packing cubes. I have three sets of the cube sets (one set being a compression set) and use the larger full cubes for jeans and pants and the medium sized half cubes for tee shirts and underwear. I can't say I find the compression cubes to be more useful than the regular cubes. Though it does compress it down some, if you pack the regular cubes with tightly rolled clothes, I find I fit the same amount and it takes up the same amount of space. I suppose if packing a fleece jacket or bulky sweater, the compression set may be more useful for this purpose. I do use and like them, but use the regular non-compression sets more often. I travel from Israel to the US quite frequently and use the Specter cubes every time I travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea I have used Eagle Creek packing cubes for many years and thought they were great, but they have vastly improved them with this whisper light weight material and the ability to compress. They take up way less space and weigh almost nothing. They are a little costly but well worth it. Got these on Container Stores travel sale......a real bargain. Plan to get more....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have used other Eagle Creek Pack-It products for many years to organize my family's clothes when we travel. The compression set is great. I needed to bring a change of clothes to work. I was able to pack a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, socks, and a cardigan in a large bag, zip it up to compress it, and it fit in my shoulder bag. I also used the set for an overnight camping trip with my daughter. All of our clothes fit in the two bags, and we had plenty of room left in our backpacks to carry sleeping bags, food, and other gear. The bright orange color is great and the construction seems durable. I plan to buy another set. Hope it becomes available in other bright colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Space in the Suitcase! The Specter Pact-It Compression set is very, very light-weight. The material reminds me of parachutes. The zippers have large tabs and are very easy to pull/open. There are two sets of zippers. One opens the bag, the second is to compress the bag after filling. So, open both sets of zippers, fill the bag with socks, underwear, t-shirts, whatever, then close the zippers- Voila! The fully open bag has about a 3” depth. Closing the compression zippers will take that size down, leaving more packing space in your suitcase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I have used this pack-it product for trips on our boat. I can fit about 5 shorts and top sets in the large bag and a week's worth of underwear in the smaller bag. Since there is limited space on a boat, once I compress it, I can find most any space to store it and the clothes do not get wrinkled. I hope to add more to my collection for my husband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made Me A Believer! I travel a lot and never thought these pack-it systems were worth the effort. I was going on quite a few trips over the summer and decided these compression pack-it's sounded interesting and decided to give them a try. They have totally changed my mind. I was amazed at how many things I could cram in and still compress down quite a bit. Saved me a ton of space! In addition, if you are on a trip where you are living out of a suitcase,it makes it easy to find exactly what you are looking for. TIP: after a few days of I turned one of the pack-it's into a laundry bag to keep the "dirties" separate from my clean clothes. I am now a believer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had several pieces of Eagle Creek packing envelopes for years and have been happy with them, but they are heavy. This newer line is amazing - so lightweight! And the compression packs are a must - especially when trying to pack in a small suitcase. Get them!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compression packs Best product at the container store. I use half the amount of space in my suitcase. I purchased 2 sets for myself and 2 in green for my husband. He absolutely loves them! Our luggage has never been so organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Valuable Packing Tool! These are the best little bags for packing because of the compression. They are great. You really have to try it to appreciate it. I highly recommend that you buy this for your next trip. I bought one pair (and will be getting another). He who packs the lightest wins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eagle Creek Compression Bags Saw demo from a co-worker about this product. What an amazing product - I put it to test on our recent travel. I had so much room in my 20" luggage that I was able to purchase many other garments during my vacation. I am definitely getting another set. Will be getting every family member a set for the holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow it did All Fit Unlike for the use in clothes these two little bags did wonders. I can only use a carry on and I was able to get all the clothes I need and have them orderly. It took a moment to figure out how I could best use them but my next trip will be easy to figure out now that I've takin' the plunge into order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you travel a lot, you must have these bags! These bags are AWESOME!! I travel a LOT and often struggle fitting everything in my suitcases. No more! These bags allow so much additional space that I can still pack my workout clothes rather than leave them behind (aren't they always the first to go?). Yes, the zipper is sometimes funky but if you are patient with it, it works fine. Love these and will buy a second set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help for the packing challenged I am getting better but am known to overpack. I just went to Europe for a week and could not believe the difference that these Compression Pack its made! When I first saw them I was doubtful - but the larger of the pair held several pair of jeans without any strain on the material or zipper. A must for long trips!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, makes packing easy! After reading the reviews on this product and with how much I travel, I knew I needed to buy a set. The bags work as advertised and help me stay organized when I travel, as well as take more clothes and use up less space. There are 2 issues that I found, they aren't dealbreakers but I did want to put them out there. The zipping of the compression bag can be annoying because as I would zipper it, the material would get stuck in the zipper. I would go a few inches and have to pull the material out, that got annoying. While the zipper remained intact, I did have an issue with the pull of the zipper (the fabric used to pull the zipper, not the zipper pull itself) coming off and there is no way to put it back on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Backpacking gift I received these pack it cubes as a gift, and they are by far the best thing I have used backpacking. It is so convenient to know where everything is and easy to see through the translucent material. Great tool if anyone is traveling!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great concept but some quality issues I was looking for an luggage organizer and this product was not only light weight it had the added benefit of compressing. I also liked the semi sheer fabric so I have a rough idea what is inside. A con is that the little cord that wraps through tore off the first time I used it. The zipper still works but the benefit of a larger grasping surface was immediately lost. The other cords look ok. For now

Community Q&A

Do items packed in the compression system tend to get wrinkled?

Asked by: HWGK
I have found that if you fold your items to fit within the dimensions rather than treating these like a stuff sac they will not wrinkle very much. With that in mind I do tend to pack items like pajamas, yoga pants and socks and underwear in the compression bags and my more formal clothing in the envelopes.

security & customs

How are these for going through airport security and customs when traveling abroad? Last year when I traveled to France, I was randomly chosen for my bag to be opened and inspected. They actually removed some of my clothing and felt around inside my bag, so I'm wondering how much of a hassle it would be if they opened these and they "inflated".
Asked by: Anonymous
I have to admit, I don't have these cubes, but I have the packing folders. My husband's bag was chosen to be inspected by security. When the agent opened his bag, she was impressed how organized his bag was. She said that it helped speed up the inspection. She did not open them, but waved the wand over and under them. She also mentioned how nice it would be if everyone packed using the folder system.
