We are LiteTravel. Last year we launched Qubix1 right here on Kickstarter and successfully delivered over 30,000 cubes to our backers alone. Since then, we served over 10,000 happy customers around the world.
Your incredible support and feedback inspired us to take the double compression packing cube family to the next level.
We all know the pain of a messy luggage! Packing can be a struggle, especially when trying to fit in all your essentials.
When you finally arrive at your destination after a long trip, dealing with the dread of unpacking is the last thing you ever want to be doing. 😱
Lost Items, creased clothes, scruffy shoes, tangled cables and all the rest...
Now you can finally say goodbye to the dreadful task and epic waste of time that is unpacking!
Thanks to Qubix2’s hook and hang system, you can unpack your entire suitcase in a matter of seconds.
Simply hook and hang your cubes on the rail, on a hanger, or anywhere you want!
Getting access to your clothes is an absolute breeze. Simply unzip your cube (even without de-compressing it) and… voilà!
Oh and did we mention? The hook and hang system doubles as a carrying handle.
So you can grab your cubes with ease, anytime and anywhere.
The double compression zipper is a revolution in packing efficiency.
The centre compression zipper wraps twice around each cube, giving you the added flexibility of a 2 level compression.
Qubix2 features a new super lightweight RipStop parachute fabric that is woven using a special reinforcing technique, making it resistant to tearing and ripping.
And as the name suggests, skydivers trust it to keep them safe at 15,000 ft. So you know you can trust it on your travels!
In a nutshell, if you want super durable packing cubes, that’s exactly what you get when backing Qubix2.
Whether you roll or fold, the folding board keeps your cubes flat and flush when zipped and compressed.
See Qubix2 in action for yourself.
The Qubix2 Toiletry Cube is epic, and is one of our proudest upgrades!
It has a retractable hook you can use to hang it anywhere.
It comes with an optimised pocket configuration of different sizes for complete versatility.
So you can fit all your favourite grooming items. No seriously, I mean aaaaaaaall of them, and then some! 😉
To make it even better, the Toiletry Cube is made with waterproof material. Aaaaand it comes with a tear-away pouch and a waterproof zipper.
You can even hang it in the shower using its very own integrated hook and hang strap.
This is the newest addition to the Qubix family. It's optimized to hold and organise your electronics in an efficient and compact way.
It can comfortably fit all your cables, chargers, gadgets and accessories. The outside walls are lightly padded to offer extra protection for your valuables.
Keep all your tech accessories neatly organised and easily reachable in one place. And say goodbye to damaged gear and messy cables forever.
We wanted the laundry bag to be discreet yet super useful.
So we made it double the size compared to Qubix1.
And it folds so tiny, you won’t even know it’s there until you need it.
No one wants the dirt and grime from the pavement rubbing against their clothes!
Universal sizes are made to fit pretty much every hand luggage, suitcase, or backpack.

Here we go: 😊
Because the community is growing, we wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves to the members meeting us for the first time, as well as share some more insight into the journey since Qubix 1 with our existing backers.
We're a small group of travellers who understand the need to stay light and very organised, no matter how far or for how long you travel. And we're passionate about coming up with solutions (hacks, if you will) that make our travels (and life) easier. ✈️✈️
You might already know that approximately this time last year we brought to Kickstarter Qubix 1 - the super strong double compression packing cubes we created as a solution to a problem we had struggled with for years: messy luggage that's been a pain to pack, unpack and manage throughout our travels.
Qubix 1 received so much ❤️❤️ and support from our backer community... It was unexpected, positively surprising and humbling all at once. 🙏
With over 5,500 people rallying behind our idea on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, we were determined to meet your expectations and got to work as soon as we received the funds pledged to the campaign.
We basically slept at our manufacturer's facility and supervised the entire production process before we packaged every single reward and shipped it out to our backers.
Although it was our very first experience producing something at such a big scale, we managed to overcome all the challenges of that process and delivered the rewards from both campaigns on time. Whew! 😅
Since then we shipped out over 30,000 cubes to our crowdfunding backers alone and served over 10,000 happy customers across the world. 🌎 🌍 🌏 We're secretly very proud of this, but we didn't rest on our laurels.
Requests to keep producing and selling Qubix have continued to pour in and we also keep receiving proposals from large distributors to include Qubix in their family of products.
But our main focus has always remained on our backers because without your support, Qubix would have never been created.
So rather than going wide (expanding the distribution of Qubix across as many channels as possible), we chose to go deep (listen to our backers' input and work to make their packing experience even easier than ever before).
So... to make sure we are laser focused, we paused the expansion of Qubix 1 and started working on implementing all the feedback brought forth by our backers.
Among some of the most popular upgrades suggested were:
- adding a handle to the compressions cubes for easy carry
- compartmentalising the toiletry cube better to neatly fit all your travel essentials for short, medium and longer trips
- adding an electronics cube that's small and compact yet spacious to fit the most common gadgets, chargers and cables you travel with
Adding our own voices to those of our backers', we also:
- changed the fabric to ripstop nylon - extremely durable, water resistant and light weight
- redesigned the toiletry cube to include a tear-away compartment made of waterproof material and with waterproof zipper so you have the flexibility to pack as many or as little toiletries as you need for your trips + we added convenient hangers to both partitions so they can be used together or separately without losing functionality or convenience
- doubled the functionality of the carrying handles to include the hook and hang system - meaning you will no longer have to unpack when you reach your destination 😍 all you'll have to do is hook and hang, then unzip your cubes (even without releasing the compression) and have easy access to all your clothing in seconds.
- doubled the size of the laundry bag yet made it fold tiny so you won't even notice it's there until you need it
- increased the warranty period and made our replacement process quick and painless [i.e. if you experience any product failure, all you need to do is send us a clear picture and a quick description of the problem and we'll send you a replacement right away].
And so much more...
Having come this far, we're very excited to share Qubix 2 with you because you've contributed to making it what it is today. 🤝🤝
If you've been with us from the beginning of this journey, we really can't thank you enough! Qubix wouldn't have been possible without you and we are beyond grateful for your trust and support. 🤩🤩
The first iteration of Qubix was launched in 2018 and received the support of over 5,500 backers
Over 10,000 happy customers and over 30,000 cubes delivered worldwide since then
The incredible feedback from our backers and customers helped us take the overall design and functionality to the next level - this is how Qubix 2 came to be
The most significant upgrades compared to version 1 include:
- hook & hang system that eliminates the need to unpack, gives you easy access to your clothing and doubles as a carrying handle for convenience; 😍
- super durable lightweight ripstop parachute nylon now used for Qubix 2 items;
- compartmentalised toiletry cube that features a tear-away pouch made of waterproof material and with waterproof zipper and you can even take it with you in the shower;
- doubled the size of the laundry bag yet made it fold tiny so you won't even know it's there until you need it;
- versatile electronics cube added to the set
- quick and painless replacements, and so much more...
Thank you for joining us on another exciting ride of the Qubix journey.
Risks and challenges
Risks & Challenges:
Bringing a product from drawing board to reality is a tough challenge and we’ve learned countless lessons during the first Kickstarter campaign.
We’ve been fortunate to have a great manufacturer that helped us deliver on time, and a fantastic community of backers that supported us and provided amazing feedback.
Your own experiences and input have helped us refine Qubix and upgrade its features to provide you with an even better packing experience.
We gathered invaluable experience during the manufacturing stages and we believe we are now even better equipped to deliver a great quality product that you’ll be proud to use for years to come.
No matter how much we’ve got our ducks in a row though, things sometimes can still go awry. We’ll always do our best to solve all issues in a way that leaves you happy and proud to have supported our projects.
If you are among our legacy backers, the entire LiteTravel team extends yet another heartfelt “Thank You” - we’re excited to share with you another milestone of the LiteTravel adventure.
If you’re just meeting us for the first time, we hope to have you along for the ride this time around.
No matter where you are in your journey with us, we need your support and promise to maintain full transparency throughout the process. Whatever comes our way, we’ll get through it together.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
