World First Patent-Pending Zip-Out Backpack Straps

The Cabin X's unique zip-out backpack straps allow the case to be switched from trolley to backpack in seconds.

We've long enjoyed the versatility that Hybrid bags provide when travelling, but often found the transition between trolley and backpack modes complicated and time consuming. The Cabin X, with its unique zip-out backpack straps, makes this process simple and quick.

Ultra-padded and backed in Neoprene for improved tactility, the straps are undone by pulling up conjoined parallel zips. This allows the backpack straps to zip straight out of the rear of the bag - no clips to undo, no flaps to fold down and no space-wasting storage pockets. It's a simple and modern solution.

Switching back to trolley mode is just as easy - simply tuck the adjustable webbing behind the backpack straps and draw the parallel zips back down. This ensures that the straps are safely stored and unable to dangle down on to the floor as the case is being pulled along.

To ensure comfort over longer distances, the Cabin X features a discreet zip-out chest strap, thick padding on the rear panel and a combination of both edge padding and a zip-shield on the straps themselves to prevent the zip teeth rubbing on the wearer's shoulders.

The Cabin X features a wheel cover that extends out from a small pocket on the rear of the bag in order to protect the wearer's clothes from marks when the case is being worn as a backpack. The wheels themselves are also mounted outboard to avoid contact with the user's back and to provide excellent stability when being pulled as a trolley.

An aerospace-grade aluminium handle and lightweight chassis mean the Cabin X is easy and smooth to pull along in trolley mode and is simple to place into overhead lockers and airline luggage sizers.

Intelligent Packing Space

Travel is less stressful when you are organised - The Cabin X is packed full of features to make your travel experience as seamless as possible.

As well as getting the basics right, the Cabin X features an Internal Compression Zone, Detachable Hang-up Packing Organiser and a dedicated transparent Toiletries pocket so that you can put it's 38 litres of internal capacity to the best use.

The Internal Compression Zone helps you to compact more of your clothes into the same space within the bag and minimizes their movement whilst in transit. This also helps with weight distribution and ensures the Cabin X remains stable and doesn't bulge at the base like some soft-sided cases do.

For easy unpacking, the Cabin X features a Detachable Hang-up Packing Organiser that is easily unzipped from the main case and hung up in a wardrobe. It is an ideal place to pack and compress small items that often get lost at the bottom of your case ready for easy access when they are needed. The 3D packing pockets are constructed from mesh in order to allow clothes to breath and ensure you are able to identify what is in each pocket easily. On the reverse compartment, a fabric rail allows for easy transport of a tie with minimal creasing.

The Cabin X features a transparent toiletries pocket so that your liquids are easy to remove for inspection at airport security. Accessed through an aperture above the Hang-up Packing Organiser, this pocket ensures you can remove your toiletries bag in seconds and can avoid rooting through your bag at the X-ray machine.

In addition to these innovations, the Cabin X features a wealth of useful internal pockets for travel accessories and a bright white internal lining to make finding small items easier in low light conditions.

Protection For Your Tech

We know that the most valuable things you'll probably travel with are your tech, your keys and your money (physical or otherwise), so we've ensured that the Cabin X's tech compartment offers multifaceted protection for these items.

Accessed via lockable water-resistant zips, the tech compartment features padded pockets for both a 15 ½ inch laptop/Macbook and an iPad - these pockets are also fleece-lined for improved tactility when loading or unloading.

The tech compartment also features an R.F.I.D. blocking pocket to protect your contactless cards and passport from NFC scanning whilst you are on the go. The pocket is large enough for most wallets or purses so you don't have to worry about decanting your cards out of your usual accessory in order for them to be protected.

A key clip, ticket pocket, pen slots and space for a magazines or notepads also feature within the tech compartment to ensure that everything you might need on your journey is quickly accessible.

Cabin X Day Bag - Detachable Companion Backpack

For those occasions that require a more compact backpack, we've designed the Cabin X Day Bag.

Easily attached and detached from the main Cabin X Hybrid, the Day Bag measures 33x20x9cm (13x8x4 in) and is suitable for the personal item/second bag regulations of most major airlines.

The compact and light design has a capacity of 6 litres and features an organiser pocket, padded iPad compartment, a zip-out adjustable water bottle holder and packaway backpack straps that can be stowed when the Day Bag is attached to the main Cabin X Hybrid.

The Day Bag is attached to the main Hybrid bag via spring clips that ensure both secure fastening and easy removal. Stability is always a key consideration when designing a set of bags that connect together, which is why the main Cabin X Hybrid features an extendable base support to ensure it never tips forward when a fully loaded Day Bag is attached.

Super lightweight at just 450 grams, the Day Bag is constructed from the same high quality materials as the main Cabin X Hybrid; it's a perfect and long-lasting companion for exploring your destination.

Flight Approved Design

The Cabin X’s 55x35x20cm/22x14x8 inch dimensions are suitable for the hand luggage regulations of almost every major airline in the world.

The detachable Cabin X Day Bag is also sized to fit the second bag/personal item rules of many carriers too, meaning you'll be able to place it under the seat in front and have direct access to your flight essentials.

We've looked at how travellers interact with their luggage in airports and on planes to ensure the Cabin X is a joy to use. We've used lightweight components such as an aerospace grade aluminium telescopic handle to keep weight to a minimum; welcome when removing a bag from an overhead locker.

Similarly, the Cabin X's ultra-padded Eco-suede carry handles are backed with comfortable neoprene and designed with an increased surface area to ensure the weight of the case is evenly spread over hand of the user. We want you to never feel the carry handles cutting in to your hands when removing a full case from an airline luggage sizer.

The Cabin X is suitable as hand luggage on most major airlines.

Amongst many others, the main Cabin X ONE Hybrid case meets the hand luggage requirements of airlines such as:

British Airways, Easyjet, Lufthansa, Ryanair, Emirates, Virgin, Air Asia, Air France, American Airlines, United, Delta, Spirit, Southwest, Jet Blue, Frontier, China Southern, Qantas, Cathay Pacific, Norwegian, Germanwings, NokAir

Materials & Construction

Travel bags are often subject to more punishment than the average backpack, so we've ensured the Cabin X is made to last.

The Cabin X Hybrid and Day Bag are constructed from a high quality 850D Nylon that is both showerproof and strong. Eco-suede detailing lends a crafted, tactile feeling to the case's handles and shell, whilst sensitive use of neoprene padding ensures the places the wearer will interact with most are a pleasure to touch.

Both bags feature strong water-resistant lockable zips on their exterior shells to protect against water ingress, whilst the zip-pulls themselves have been designed to be easy to find and pull; ideal if you are reaching down to try and get into the case on a crowded bus or train, for example

We have great experience of luggage hardwear, and purposely chose wheels and chassis that are hard wearing and reliable instead of showy.

Colors and Styles

The Cabin X will initially launch with two color options to satisfy a broad range of consumer tastes.

Whether you are looking for a professional business bag or something a bit more stylish, the Cabin X has you covered.
