    I've seen this, I've tried it but it doesn't work. I think its ok for guys but not women. we need purses and more than one pair of shoes and alot more than guys, lol. I use a duffle style carry on, use my travel space bags and manage. But you know, each time you go to Aruba, at least for me, I pack less & less and stay longer. You really learn with each trip what you really don't need to take.

    It's not okay for guys either, unless all you need are swim trunks and tank tops. You can't roll a dress shirt or slacks without them needing ironing when you unpack. I've tried rolling but it doesn't work for me. Space bags work much better.

    I just have to share a funny story:

    I was concerned about getting the clothing and accessories (flowers, etc.) for our vow renewal to Aruba without mussing them up to badly. So I bought a new orange hard-sided suitcase just for those items. Then I used our two large black suitcases to pack the rest of the items for our family of five. So those two were pretty heavy. The orange one only had my dress for the ceremony, my girls' sundresses, hubby's shirt and shorts, and the flower bouquets.

    It was funny watching the luggage progress through each airport and be loaded. The baggage people would pick up bags with gusto to heave them onto the belt, into the cart, etc. and every time they'd grab the orange one they'd nearly put it into orbit because they were expecting to have to heft it and it was so light. LOL. One of the shuttle drivers laughed and said, "Someone packed REALLY light!"

    I can never pack like that. But when we cruise and I want some clothes wash/fold... I can manage to pack/roll clothes into one sack so tightly then in return I will get back 3 same size sacks... lol
