About

We are a multitasking society and with that we expect the items we use on a daily basis to be the same. But when it comes to gym bags, they seem to have fallen behind in this trend. Living in the time crunched world we do today we often find ourselves heading from a workout to work or vice versa. With most gym or utility bags, they are designed for your sports gear, but not your work gear. So we want to design a bag to change that.

SUB is a true multi-tasker specially designed for people with active lifestyle. It’s ultra versatile capabilities allow it to carry anything from your laptop, cell phone, shoes and any other gym or work essentials all in one.

What people are saying

The Awesomer: "SUB is one bag to rule them all"

Gizmorati: "An effortless companion for work and leisure"

Gear Shout: "A roomy and comfortable sports bag for gym and work"

Gadget Flow: "Equipped to get all your belongings to the end safely"

Gadgeteer: "A true multi-tasker designed to carry your gym paraphernalia as well as your work essentials"

Fashion Luxury: "The perfect everyday bag with no boundary"

Vouchmag: "SUB solves the problem of space for both sportswear and small to mid-size devices"

Heldth: "This is definitely one falls out of the ordinary"

The Freshpreneur: "The Utility Bag That Will Fit Your Daily Lifestyle"

 SUB Demo Video

SUB was made for those that are physical, competitive and love a good challenge. People that go out and live life to the fullest. In order to take on those challenges you need your equipment to be as physical as you and just like you, it needs to get there in once piece. SUB is ready to take on any challenge with you and is equipped to get all your belongings to the end safely.

On designing the functions of the bag, we looked to our colleagues, friends and family who are always on the go. How do they usually carry their bags? What did they usually carry with them? We discovered that they often go directly to the gym and work on the same day, which prompted us to combine both laptop and gym accessories compartments in the same bag - along with quick-access pockets for often needed essentials.

Brand: We are a small team of designers who have personally invested everything into the research and product development of this project. Help us make this bag a reality and reach beyond our goal. Your support is the vital growth of our brand and bringing more carry solutions to life, including the stretch goal goodies for backers.

Minimum Order Quantity: Quality manufacturers require a substantial order minimum. However, our relationship with our manufacturers help lower that minimum. Helping us write our first purchase order at reduced funding goal.

Tooling: Some of the components including custom hardware and embossing require an investment in tooling for volume production.

A special thanks to all the people who helped put this project together: Kenneth Tang, Erick Vargas, Greg Garbowsky, Paris Garbowsky, James Wickers, Juan Moreno, Orlando Aspericueta, Michelle Pacheco, Daniel Reyes, Alejandro Delatorre, Stone Yeh, Karen Andrade and Rod Whyte.

Thanks to all of our friends, family and backers who have supported and cheered us on through this whole journey. Words cannot fully express our appreciation, we couldn't have done this without you!

Risks and challenges

As veterans in industrial product and bag design, the KP team has hands-on experience with development and manufacturing. We work closely with our manufacturers who are in good standing with other top brands in the industry. We aim to challenge, push and explore ways that entirely change the sourcing of materials, design ideas while lowering manufacturing costs.

With that said, some potential risks and challenges we face come down to major weather emergencies and manufacturing delays that may affect our production schedule and delivery. While these challenges are shared across our industry and very unlikely it'll happen, we are specially positioned to leverage our assets. Our scale, operational capabilities, brand strength, product innovation, and relationship with our manufacturers help reduce the risks beyond our control.

Our backers are our #1 PRIORITY and will be consistently updated throughout the campaign, manufacturing and shipping phases to help ensure our schedule and warn of any delays!
