There are things to like about all of these makers’ products, and there are times when bundling is superior to any packing cube, e.g., clothing prone to wrinkles, such as suits or blazers, that can’t be worn in transit. I like bundling as preached by Doug Dyment, but I’ve found that I prefer packing cubes on both sides of my WF. I did a test comparison of folding vs. rolling vs. Army-rolling my 10-day clothing budget—all Merino tops, bottoms, underwear & socks, along with a Montbell rain shell and Patagonia Nano Puff jacket—inside these Tom Bihn cubes, Eagle Creek Spectre Cubes [compression, non-compression, and structured compression], Lewis N.

Whether folded or rolled, all the clothing fit inside a combination of a TriStar Small  and what TB calls the WF Small . The difference completely disappears with Army-rolling, which…
