About this project
Whether you’re jet-setting abroad, or driving to a weekend getaway, space is always a premium, and no traveler enjoys the stress of not having enough space. We’ve alleviated this problem by creating a compression bag that keeps clothes compact, organized, and folded. Acteon bags maximize space because they use a separate compression zipper to flatten that bulky stack of clothes.
The struggle of keeping clean and dirty clothes separate disappears when using our packing cubes. We engineered a gusseted divider between compartments that keeps clean clothes fresh by isolating them from worn smelly clothes. This works pretty simply. Start out your trip with all of your clothing on the clean side. As your clothes get dirty, you move them one by one to the dirty side to keep them separated. The expandable center divider transfers space from the clean side to the dirty side while not increasing the overall size of the packing cube. In storing clothes separately, you can easily travel to multiple locations without worry. This also greatly simplifies unpacking.
How to use the Clean and Dirty Compartments
Without a compression cube, your clothes are going to shift and move during travel. This means you'll be left with a scattered and crumpled mess. By using an Acteon bag, your clothes will remain in their space and have a better possibility of staying wrinkle free.
How to Pack and Compress a Cube
Packing List: 7 mens medium t-shirts, 1 pair of shorts and 1 pair of 32x32 jeans.
Inspired by travel and the thrills of excursions, we created designs with geometric patterns that will appeal to anyone. To keep organization easy and show that compression is key, we used colored zippers to easily differentiate where to place your clothes, and when it’s time to compress.

Risks and challenges
Bringing a product from the drawing board to reality is not an easy task. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the funds available to create production ready samples to make sure manufacturing runs smoothly. All that remains is to raise enough money so that we can greenlight the factory and begin production. With that said, there are always unforeseen events that can happen, especially when dealing with a factory that’s half a world away. We wouldn’t bring this to Kickstarter if we weren’t completely confident that we could get our project delivered to backers on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
