This product has been a godsend for my travels! Alku Travel states that their product is for avid travelers and designed by avid travelers - and as an avid traveler, the cubes are proof that their motto is true indeed.The cubes (set of four) arrived folded very compact in a handy drawstring bag. Made of lightweight yet durable, waterproof canvas-like material, the cubes offer me a peace of mind, because I am free from worrying about accidental spill and knowing that I have a quality product that won't add to my 50 lb pound check in baggage limit (...which, admittedly, is often a problem!).The zippers are high quality, made of an easy to use pull and with rounded edges that won't snag anything. The handle on each cube is a thoughtful addition that is handy, too. Each cube has a circular mesh window at the top, which allows me to see the contents and also allows breath-ability. Furthermore, these mesh windows aren't too close to the edges, which is good because it doesn't take away from the cube's sturdiness. The varied sizes are helpful too - the largest cube size will fit within a carry on suitcase. The large is only just slightly larger than the medium by about an inch on one side.These cubes are very helpful to keep my things organized within my suitcase, especially one that doesn't have in-built separate compartments. This is especially useful for trips that require several layovers and stops, since I can easily move items from suitcase to drawer in each hotel instead of literally living out of my suitcase every day. I don't think I can go back to traveling without the cubes, as they have made my vagabond, international life much easier and organized. Furthermore, the vibrant blue color is fun (purple and black are alternative choices).The only thing I would change is having one more cube in an even smaller size, perhaps even half the size of the small, which is still quite roomy at 11"x6.75"x4", as the small is a bit too big for my cords and cables and/or toiletries.Kudos to Alku Travel's customer service. It is great to experience 5 star quality service - personal, friendly, efficient - that makes you feel valued as a customer.
I love the material used and how it's made. I am saying this because I also ordered another set of packing cubes from a different brand. The Alku Travel packing cubes are more durable. I noticed that it has pipings inside which I think make the packing cubes more durable & as I've said the material itself is of great quality. The other brand seems flimsy and may break if you overpack them. The pipings inside of the Alku Travel help keep the cubes together and to last longer.
