What are you going to carry in them? If your carrying things like a passport,money, travellers cheques and such then it's better to just procure a money pack that you can strap around your waist and under you clothes for that concealed look. If your like me and you want to carry things like detergeant, in which I am and I hope I can, then , yes zip lock bags are the perfect thing! Where to get them? well just go to your local grocery market or corner store and they should be there sold by the 90's if that makes sense?!? anyway good luck!

Also form what I have picked up in this forum it's a good way to seperate clothes and to keep clean clothes away from dirty clothes.

If your reffering to keeping clothes in zip-lock bags, then their to big! Better just keep your clean clothes in the top part of your traveling bag or you nap sack and your dirty, stinky clothes at the bottom, unless you want to do laundry then that's another matter all in itself! Safe travels though!

the thing about the zip-lock bags is that I think they don't make them that big, at least not in my part of the world. But if you want to keep your dirty socks or undies, then yeah that can certainly work! As with bigger items like A shirt or even jeans I don't think that would be possible unless in your part of the globe they be rockin them or you happen to be in an area of the world you can find them like that( and if you do find them that big, you must let me know) Anyway, I think you will be able to find a solution to your situation. good luck on your voyage!!!

Hi there,
Eagle creek has a decent packing system - packing 'cubes'. They also have 'zip-lock' compression bags that allow you to push all the air of the bag and essentially create a vacuum pack. These are great for bulky clothing such as fleeces.
