These compression bags protect your clothes from odors, bugs, moths, dust or dampness. They are airtight too. You do not need a vacuum or pump to have vacuum packaging for clothing.
The only thing you need is to zip the roll-up suction bags and push the air out through the valves near the bottom of the bag.
