Airline travel is a hassle – and it’s only getting worse! 

  • Has the TSA ever taken your expensive skin-creams, or confiscated your pricey after-shave lotions because they did not comply with the liquid rules?  

Then you know what it’s like!

  • Has your luxury shampoo/conditioner bottles ever leaked or exploded (due to air pressure changes) all over your suit intended for a next day business meeting?

Then you've felt the pain!

Don't let this happen to you!

Introducing Airsafe Carryon - The evolutionary leap forward for travel bottles

In a 2012 survey conducted by the International Air Transport Association, all airline travelers cited restrictions on liquids as one of the most frustrating elements of the security screening process.

Current 3 oz travel-sized bottles are not the solution:

  • Difficult to fill and impossible to clean
  • Not re-usable or eco-friendly 
  • Sometimes made from unknown plastics  

Regular-sized personal care bottles aren't made for travel - they add extra weight, are bulky to pack and prone to leakage.

Adding to this misery are the Airline’s size restrictions for carry-on bags and extra fees for checked/overweight bags. All of this means airline travel is only getting worse and the world desperately needs a compact solution for carrying personal liquids. 

Now there IS a better way to travel!

Airsafe Carryon is a game-changer travel product!   

The grass-roots movement for a 'better way to travel' has begun!  

When you purchase a reward and back the Airsafe Carryon product, you will be directly responsible for launching to market the next "must have travel product" that will impact travelers as much as rollers did on a suitcase.......

Airsafe Carryon Design Process

Airsafe Carryon was created by an ordinary traveler (me) for the entire world of ordinary travelers to solve a never-ending problem!  But the design process was a difficult one that can only be described as a labor of love.

Once the initial market research was completed and the product concept was created (the 1st year), it took nearly 2 more years, 4 different product design/engineering firms and 8 rounds of prototypes to get the container hinge/gasket/clasp design correct.  With dedication and endless perseverance, Airsafe Carryon was ready for launch!  

I have funded this project myself during this whole marathon process and now I seek help from the Kickstarter community to get Airsafe Carryon over the finish line and ready to market!

Airsafe Carryon Air Pressure-Change Test in Engineering Labs 

During this test, we simulated the air pressure changes that an airplane passenger experiences to make sure Airsafe Carryon remained water-tight during airline travel. No leaks!

Airsafe Carryon Production Process & Plan

I am a professional Project Manager and achieved the PMP® (Project Management Professional) certification. My experience and training will be used to bring this project to a successful completion.  I am no stranger to delivering complex projects - so Airsafe Carryon won't be my first rodeo!

Below is the graphical view of the Airsafe Carryon production schedule:

Airsafe Carryon Graphical Production Schedule
Airsafe Carryon Graphical Production Schedule

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING International backers will be responsible for applicable tariffs and customs fees.

WHAT DO I NEED $50k FOR?

Each part you see on the Airsafe Carryon Travel System requires a separate mold, from the spatula to the rubber bumpers and all parts in between, including the latch and the containers.  

The $50K fee covers the production of the molds for these parts and also places the initial order.  In the world of plastic injection molding, the MOQ (minimum order quantity) threshold is high, but once that threshold is met, the manufacturers are large and can produce high quantities of products.  All manufacturing for the Airsafe Carryon product will be done overseas. 

Airsafe Carryon - my personal story:   

Like you, I've had more than my share of travel horror stories. When I travel, I'm usually so crunched for time that I hastily throw my personal liquid bottles into my bag where they either leak and ruin my clothes or the TSA confiscates them because they do not comply with liquid restrictions. 

Over time, I said "enough is enough". After searching in retails stores, I realized there was no alternative available- it simply did not exist. So the idea of Airsafe Carryon was born out of frustration and the desire to make travel with personal liquids easier and hassle-free. 

I am proud to introduce Airsafe Carryon to you exclusively, Kickstarters, so we can ALL have a better way to travel!

Lastly - a BIG THANK YOU !

I want to give a big shout out to everyone who helped me throughout the design & development process and participated in the Airsafe Carryon campaign creation and launch.  

Thank you to John and his team of brilliant engineers, to Richard and David my video production team for incredible photography and professional video production, to Jen my awesome Social Media person, to Jerry, Thuy & Katie for beautiful graphic design, website and photography work, and to Robert for your creative ideas & help.  

I could not have done it without all of you!  

A very special thank you to Jo-Ann and all my wonderful friends for your endless encouragement, support and suggestions. Thank you to all!

I dedicate the Airsafe Carryon product launch to the memories of my beloved brother and parents.  All that I am, and all that I do, I owe to you.  

Risks and challenges

PRODUCT DESIGN
The last 2 years of my life have been spent ensuring that Airsafe Carryon is designed solidly, with both form and function in mind. This advance planning work will help to mitigate as many risks as possible. As a professional Project Manager, I also know there may be unexpected challenges along the way.

Should I hit bumps in the road that cause delays, I will be sure to communicate them quickly and keep all my backers informed on the status.

SHIPPING
A professional fulfillment center was hired to distribute the Airsafe Carryon products as efficiently as possible. We also built in extra time for the end to end process that includes the manufacturing process, delivery to the fulfillment center and shipping time out to backers, so I am confident that we can meet the projected dates. Again, I will always keep you informed in the event things take longer than planned, for any reason.

PRODUCT TESTING
The prototypes themselves were extensively tested for performance (water-tightness) and durability. We've done both field testing - ie taking the prototype containers onto an airplane on a trip - AND tested them in the engineering labs as you see on the video. As the air pressure test video proves, Airsafe Carryon is water-tight and will not leak during your travels.
