They are particularly handy when you travel; the first thing into any suitcase of mine is my folded and snapped Pliage, which I then use to accumulate all of my purchases and receipts along the way. Then I use the bag as my carry-on for the return trip, so everything is in one place on that rare chance that the Customs people will want to inspect my newly-acquired treasures.

My only warning: I would NEVER, EVER consider using one of these bags for checked luggage. I've seen it done and I think it's foolhardy; the lightness of the bags translates into a certain lack of "baggage handler-worthy" sturdiness, if you know what I mean.
