Let’s face it.
Nowadays, airlines charge an arm and a leg for every extra piece of luggage or extra kg/lb above your ticket allowance.
You want to keep your luggage neat and organised, but you feel like all the packing cubes out there are a joke?
We feel you! Poor stitching, zippers that catch the fabric and get stuck half way, ugly designs with mesh or flimsy fabric that does nothing to compress... Need we go on?...
Whether you’re a frequent traveller or you just enjoy occasional city breaks, space is a luxury and packing in a light, neat, space-efficient way is as challenging as a mental ninja warrior obstacle course.
Ok maybe not that much, but you get the picture.
Qubix is the minimalist solution you've been waiting for.
It doesn't just solve all the problems current packing cubes have, it also compliments any type of luggage so you can now travel in style.
Let's look at what makes your Qubix so amazingly #worthit:
We’re frequent travellers ourselves...
So we understand all too well the stress of fitting travel essentials in the limited space of a carry-on or check-in luggage.
Qubix gives you the perfect solution for neat, lightweight luggage that allows you to pack more and save space.
Your Qubix center compression zipper wraps twice around each cube, giving you the added flexibility of a 2 level compression.
No more dealing with the stress of your packing cubes not compressing or falling apart when fully compressed.
Qubix allows you to pack as much or as little as you want or need.
Keeping your luggage organised, compact and lightweight while saving up to 66% more space?
You better believe it!
With your new Qubix family, you can trust this isn’t just a possibility - it’s a given!
Have you ever looked outside the window from your airplane seat?
If so, then you must have felt your heart sink at the sight of your luggage being thrown around during loading or unloading from the airplane.
Without a compression cube, your clothes shift around and you arrive at your destination with a mess resembling the closet of a 3 year old in charge of organising their own wardrobe.
Trust Qubix to guarantee your clothes will travel neatly, no matter the abuse your luggage goes through during the epic wrestling sessions with the baggage handlers.
Let's put this one into context. The clothes you see in the picture above belong to a big guy. Think 6.3 ft (190 cm) muscular dude who loves cake.
Those, my friend, are really large clothes and your large Qubix can fit well over a weeks' worth of them.
By comparison, the cake loving guy’s girlfriend is your regular next door girl. Not too tall, not too short, not too skinny… you get the picture.
While the large Qubix fits a week's worth of the big guy’s wardrobe, we could fit 18 of his girlfriend’s everyday clothing items into that same cube and compressed it fully - no sweat!
And we didn’t cheat at all. Among those 18 clothes there are no underwear items or socks. That’s what your small Qubix is for!
Take a close look at the zippers on your clothes. Chances are you'll find the letters "YKK," on a lot or all of them.
These babies are on everything from jeans, to coats, to sleeping bags.
That’s because they have an unrivalled global reputation for impressive construction and reliability.
Your Qubix zippers are corrosion resistant, super durable and guaranteed to work seamlessly for donky years (actual measure of time).
And because they are the real deal, your entire Qubix family comes with YKK zippers as a standard.
If you’ve used packing cubes before, you know most either pull apart like butter or are very flimsy. Or quite likely, both!
Your pain has been our pain for years and years.
Your Qubix family is reinforced with double-stitching at the seams and contour-tubing for extra durability you can truly rely on.
We’ve been stress-testing it (like seriously overstuffing it, on purpose!) for the past 6 months and wow do they hold up. Think the 'Bruce Lee' of packing cubes.
From London to Amsterdam to Budapest to Bali to Shanghai to Hong Kong and not a single sign of the cubes buckling under immense pressure!
If we had a penny for every time we had to iron clothes after a flight…We'd probably have about a thousand pennies, what's that, about 10 bucks? Ok, it might not be a lot of money, but you get the gist :)
Would you want to go out and about looking like you just pulled your shirt or dress out of your a$$?.. Didn’t think so!
Your folding board helps you pack your clothes neatly and in the exact dimensions of your medium size Qubix.
Simply fold and stack your shirts or dresses in the cube, then place the board on top before zipping up and compressing.
And did we mention?.. The antibacterial treatment ensures longevity of the fabric and keeps your clothes bacteria and odour free.
Emma here is a petite girl who’s never lifted a dumbbell in her life!
And she’s compressing a fully stuffed large Qubix.
Do you see her struggle at all?
That’s because compressing with Qubix doesn’t require any elbow grease. None!
All you need is a drop of determination and the super durable Qubix family.
Let’s be honest here: most packing cubes are unattractive - to say the least.
Qubix is a real sight for sore eyes.
It’s not even us saying this.
Reactions from other fellow travellers seeing Qubix is consistently along the lines of:
“Oh man, your luggage is neat” - Jess (New Zealand)
“Wow, I need to get me a set of these.” - Bud (USA)
“#worthit” - Kadek (Indonesia)
“Waaaaaay better than those flimsy things I buy at Bentley! Bring them on!!!!” - Mary Anne (USA)
“Well dang, these cubes are a sight for sore eyes” - Lola (Australia)
To sum up Qubix in just one sentence…
It’s your amazing-value-for-money family that does its job perfectly and helps you travel neater for many years to come.

Risks and challenges
Bringing an idea to life is a complex process and one that we got to learn inside out over the past 12 months.
We’ve been able to forego the funds necessary to manufacture a handful of prototypes to test the quality and durability of the product and to make sure manufacturing runs smoothly.
The only challenge at this stage is bringing this amazing product to a large audience. Which is why we need your support on Kickstarter.
We have already been communicating and working with our supplier for many months already.
We wouldn’t bring Qubix to Kickstarter if we weren’t confident that we can deliver on the project to all our backers.
That being said, we understand that every endeavour that’s worth the effort comes with its own challenges and these challenges may not always be within our control.
We assure you that we will have one of our team members on ground at our manufacturer’s facility to personally inspect every single pledge before we ship it out to you.
We also promise to maintain full transparency in our post-campaign communication with all our backers so you are always aware of our progress along the way.
