    Sorry to be unhelpful, but yes, you're allowed to pack your things in anything you want, BUT there is no guarantee that customs won't open anything - they have the right.

    I tried using vacuum storage bags for my clothes that I was packing for a flight to NZ. I realized that since I could pack more clothes by vacuuming out the air my suitcase weighed too much and ended up not using the vacuum bags. Unfortunately, you really have to watch the weight of your bags!
