To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I used these to pack extra shoes on a recent trip to DC, and they did a great job of keeping my shoes contained, and helped keep everything else in my suitcase clean. They are lightweight and breathable, not adding to my luggage's overall weight, but do the job I bought them for. Would recommend.
Thankfully these DO have basic mud/water resistance compared to the EC Shoe Cubes (useless IMHO, basically those are just a dustproof bag). These are the ONLY way to go IF YOU DON'T OWN EC's older Mud Box bags (sadly now discontinued). The problem with these, as the EC 'cubes' ---these only hold a smaller sneaker set, flip-flops, dress shoes. Neither are large enough for real hiking boots, snow boots, similar etc :((((
My review from elsewhere is included below. It covers both the EC 'sacks' and 'the shoe cubes' ----compared to the older EC Mud Box bags.......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tis very hard to find 'sealed' bags that don't have open mesh for packing/traveling shoes.... I do however prefer the EC Shoe Sacks over the EC Shoe Cubes. That said ---these work okay. Sadly these are not very big :( If opting for these --compare your alternative option with their 'shoe sacks' ----IMHO, the 'sacks' are better for water/mud issues, but also are still quite small (neither are for real hiking boots). Overall: 1) they DO NOT FIT anything bigger than 'a sneaker-size shoe', 2) these are much better priced for what you get. 3) these also have a better mud/water/wetness barrier than the EC Shoe Cube.
EAGLE CREEK: PLEASE BRING BACK your MUD BAGS!!!! THOSE literally R-O-C-K for hiking/snow/etc boots & everything else!!! Everything IN ONE BAG and almost completely waterproof!!! Sort of rubbery bottom&sides with sealed mesh top!!! They were like a real small suitcase for footwear!!! Easy to use, access, and even pack multiple footwear items into!!!! Protection from mud, ick, water, you name it ---you can rest assured. However, that is all now hindsight :( Numerous 'shoe items' fit into these.... flip-flops, tennies, boots, etc ---all in one bag!!! Both the LG and MD were fabulous!!! I do use your EC 'shoe sacks' to separate reg shoes/etc into the same bag with 'real boots' in what I now consider 'a good ole friend called MUD BOX'. Worth the space if packing/traveling..... and even better for weekend road or camping trips!!!! Sadly though you've left us with nothing for our 'beefy boots' NOR anything that can hold up to real wetness :(((
PLEASE EC ---BRING BACK your MUD BAGS!!!! (if they ain't available ANYWHERE online (even used) ---that should tell you just how popular and ABFAB they were! Tain't no one giving up their precious 'mud bags' for any price cuz they were "the best of the best" of your offerings EVER!) I've 40 yrs of REAL outdoor experience EC. Your mud box bags were the only way to go.... but now you leave me with these? And no, I do not want some bulky ski boot bag in order to get 'what I used to get with your MBox bags'. My loss weighs heavy Eagle Creek :((( ~~~ RIP MudBoxbags :((
**** PS: pics are of my ole friend --MUD BOX only ****
Before buying these I kept "losing" shoes because I'd put them in opaque nylon bags. I'd have to open the bag to remind myself which pair of shoes was in it. Now I can see by just looking. Like everything Eagle Creek makes, these are brilliant.
These bags came promptly but one is ripped at the seam. Unfortunately I am headed on vacation and need them. I don’t have time to do the return or worry about them at this point. I will need to order new ones but will likely then pay double. I buy a lot of Eagle Creek products Burt this must have been a bad batch.
