    It does because it's pleated, and has an industrial-strength zipper. Ziploc sells pleated zip-tab baggies but they are notorious for popping open (I really wish they'd just make the pleated bags with a standard resealable closure instead of the zipper pull--they used to make them many moons ago and they were quite good, not just for toiletries, but for socks and underwear). Hefty may have something similar, but they, too, have the problem with the zipper pull version coming undone.

    I also like that leaks will rarely leak out of the case itself, because of the seal around the zipper. And being able to leash it to your carry-on and not having to put it in the plastic bin is a huge plus.

    Storm, hmm? I really like that color, too.

    I'm pretty sure you're right that it holds more!

    Update: I decided to go with the 3d Clear Cube in Storm and used it as my 3-1-1 bag the other day, using the keystrap to attach it to my bag. Worked like a charm at Denver and SFO security. And I think it actually holds MORE than the 1qt ziploc. It's like magic or something. On the way home I had a tub of hair conditioner pop open, and I just turned the bag inside out and rinsed it with hot water and it appears to be as good as new.

    i remember being told to toss a nail cutter as i went through security once (i forget now where that happened). at new delhi airport security, they've fussed over my car key more than once.
    The scissors are less than 4 inches (actually less than an inch) which meets TSA standards. On the international front, a nice security guard in the Sao Paulo airport owns my first Style PS so I would be careful on the international front. Funny thing is it went into Brazil, went intra-Brazil on a flight from Rio to Sao Paulo and then they took it away on the way home. =(

    Reviewed the little bugger on my site if you want the quick run through .

    Also, I cant take credit on the keystrap tethering on the 3D cube, I got it from somebody else here...Backpack maybe? Can someone chime in so we can give credit where credit is due?

    I'm surprised no one has fussed over my car key-- it's the switchblade-style VW key. Of course, at Paris, where I got patted down for not having my camera (!) out, I got through with a bottle of Febreze (accidentally-- I had forgotten that I took it out of my 3-1-1 bag.)

    the idea of tethering the 3d organizer pouch as you send your stuff through the security scan is brilliant! thanks!! i am going to try that the next time that i travel.

    I once had security ask me about a TB pouch but only to suggest I go with a zip loc. The 3D hasn't raised any issues yet and I prefer it to a regular pouch anyway so win-win really.

    I have had no problems at any airport and have not even had to untether mine.

    I use the 3D as my liquids bag without problems, but I do usually leave it tethered with a long key strap. Occasionally I've been asked to detach it. Why? No idea! I never argue with these people as there's little to gain.

    Agreed, GoToobs are awesome. I have six of the smallest size ones, color-coded so I can quickly figure out what goes in the shower and what goes by the sink. The only problem I've had with them leaking is when I get water in the flip-top part of the lid, which is not made to be waterproof. After figuring that out I've started wiping out the lids with a towel before packing for the trip home.

    Thanks for the tip on the GoTubbs, those look nifty!

    tcook, thanks for the tip on the gotoobs they completely rock. Just posted a review of them on my blog but I was completely oblivious to them until you pointed them out.

    Once again, the TB forums are the source of all wisdom!

    Thanks, Seville the enabler. I ordered one in storm - what a great color.
