About

Quantum Luggage is a new travel gear company introducing their premier luggage collection. The collection will kick off with two sizes, carry on and 26”, and offers some incredible features that combat major suitcase frustrations. The Quantum Luggage Cart is a luggageline designed to glide on four wheels on the wide side of the luggage  instead of two or four wheels on the short side.  It folds flat for easy storage. It eliminates the need for a traditional airport luggage cart because you can stack luggage on top. You can also pull or push your luggage just like a real cart plus you can roll right up stairs or over curbs. 

The idea was born from the owner, Stu Berger, and his real life struggles of traveling with his elderly and disabled mother in law. He saw many flaws with the rolling luggage currently on the market and set out to make something better. 

A new, unique and multi patented design which makes your luggage a lot easier to maneuver. Luggage feels lighter and allows you to stack luggage or other articles on top so there is no need for a separate luggage cart or handle. You can now carry more than one piece of luggage at a time. 

We performed a digital test through an online survey reinforcing our proof of concept. The demand is there, we now have to bring our design to life and we need your help. 

You do not have to support the weight of the luggage because it rests on the wide part, balanced on 4 wheels instead of 2 or 4 wheels on the short side. You do not have to pick up the luggage to go up and down stairs or over a curb or bumpy road. It is easier for kids, elderly, or disabled travelers to handle compared to standard luggage designs. You can load additional pieces of luggage on top, acting as its own luggage cart. 

 What Does My Pledge Include? 

-  Luggage with four wheels on the bottom

- Made from Durable 900 Denier Nylon

- A Buckle strap to secure items 

- Built-In Handle 

- Limited 1 Year Warranty 

- Flexible 30-Day Satisfaction Guaranteed Return Policy 

 To make traveling easier through low tech designs. We want to reduce the stress levels and increase the efficiency of traveling through our ingenious and simple travel designs yet have the luggage affordable.

The Quantum Luggage Cart is so versatile that travelers young and old alike will enjoy its benefits. Our ultimate goal is to help people travel easier and reduce stress during what can be a very stressful time. The cart is extremely easy to push or pull along with the convenience to stack items on top of the cart. We are reinventing the way people think about airport travel. 

Even if you don’t fly or travel often, the Quantum Luggage Cart is great for infrequent travelers. It has multiple usage including park visits and grocery store shopping. You can use the luggage cart to carry your kids’ heavy sports equipment or to bring your craft supplies over to a friends house. The cart is great for stacking utilizing the flatbed design, just like a real luggage cart. When you’re not using the cart, you can simply flatten it and store it conveniently under your bed or in tight spaces. 

Quantum Luggage is a unique an innovative approach to luggage. The unique design is turning the luggage and travel industry on its head. The luggage is supported on the widest point and distributes the weight across its base so you do not have to support the weight of your bags. The system also allows you to stack additional pieces without the need of a luggage cart. 

Quantum Luggage is transforming the standard suitcase into a no-hassle, multipurpose travel accessory offering everything you want in a bag and more. The case rests horizontally on two 360-degree turning wheels and 2 fixed wheels, turning the suitcase into a perfect surface for stacking other bags. It’s strong enough to hold another suitcase using the sturdy, balanced design that makes it ideal for smaller items as well including a backpack, purse, or laptop case. There is no risk of the luggage tipping over and comes with an extendable handle that easily adjusts and locks into a comfortable angle for pulling or pushing. When the bag is not in use, it folds down compactly for easy storage. 

Quantum Luggage solves common problems with a simple solution - it works with gravity. Many travelers are already tense from strict travel schedules and seemingly endless security lines. While many luggage designs are prone to tipping or rolling over, travelers also experience the added annoyance of fighting with their cases while trying to make their way through lines and crowds. 

Travelers push or pull their bags along horizontally, with the two 360-degree easy-turn wheels and two fixed wheels. The design eliminates the risk of tipping and rolling and offers a space for stacking other bags, backpacks, purses, or carry on items. The bag is pulled along with an extendable handle that automatically locks into position for easy pushing or pulling. When the bag is not in use, it folds down compactly for easy storage.

Traveling with the family can feel like a Herculean task, whether traveling with young children or companions with limited mobility. Unloading the car often requires multiple trips to gather not only all the luggage, but other critical necessities such as an oxygen tank and extra battery pack. Quantum Luggage was developed as the answer to these travel problems. The bag is rolled horizontally including a sturdy space for extra bags. Travelers won’t need to worry about finding a luggage cart or going back and forth for bags. The bag can be pulled or pushed with an extendable handle that can be adjusted to a comfortable angle. 

Stu Berger created the Quantum luggage cart. When traveling, I see people struggle all the time with the current rolling suitcase models. They are always twisting and turning and you end up dragging them across the floor. I heard the familiar, recurring sound of that luggage falling over everywhere I traveled that I stopped bothering to look up.

The fundamental design of luggage on the market seemed flawed. I knew there had to be a better way to make the bag do most of the work. 

My future was looking bright as I attended Brooklyn college and majored in political science with the intention of going to law school. But things changed quickly....

At the young age of 20, during my Junior year of college, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin's Disease. For 8 weeks, I underwent radiation treatments (4 times a week) and then chemotherapy for another 6 months.

During this time, I stayed in school because I wanted to try and keep life as normal as possible. My father was instrumental in finding a job for me at one of his friends factories that produced vinyl products like portfolios, clipboards and ring binders.

I learned the manufacturing process inside and out as a result of the experience in the factory. I developed a passion for designing new items and gained valuable experience designing premium and promotional products for high profile clients like Philip Morris, Unilever, and Schering Plough just to mention a few. 

Around 15 years ago, I was introduced to the DRTV industry and began designing and inventing consumer related items primarily sold on TV, but also retail, catalogs, direct mail, etc. Solving problems developing everyday products is what I was meant to do.

Now I’m very excited to be taking a product of my own to market. Manufacturing is where most crowdfunding campaigns run into issues, delays, and hidden costs. I know that I can bring the Quantum Luggage Cart to you without worry on the manufacturing end because of my extensive expertise and experience of manufacturing, overseas, for the past 30 plus years.

See photo below of my mother-in-law in the wheelchair, sister-in-law, myself and all the luggage.  

When taking my mother-in-law back and forth from New York to Florida for the winter by plane, we had to make several trips to load and unload the rental car. First of all, my mother-in-law is in a wheelchair, has a carry on and luggage, plus an oxygen tank and extra battery pack. In addition, both mine and my sister-in-law carry on bags. We had to maneuver all the luggage from the airport to cars, shuttles, hotels, and sometimes even around town. 

Once in the airport, we had to search for the luggage carts, take out payment and return the carts. We always had to arrive extra early just to go through this process. On one particular trip, there were no luggage carts available, leaving us to scramble almost missing our flight. I figured there has to be a better way. I invented Quantum Luggage Cart to help my family. Now I want to share it with yours.

Risks and challenges

The only real challenge we see always comes with a Kickstarter campaign is actually making it happen - that means manufacturing and getting it to your hands.

On the Logistics side, we have already secured fulfillment centers where we will be shipping, and have agreements with freight forwarders that will make sure that the containers arrive on time and in perfect conditions.

Although it’s impossible to plan for every unexpected situation, we are confident we can deliver the goods on time and safely.

We promise that we will put all our efforts and resources to get your Quantum Luggage to you as promised, but if anything unexpected occurs, we will work very hard to solve it right away, and we will always keep you informed if anything unexpected happens.
