Introducing the Invisible Carry-on

A single backpack that simplifies the way you travel. The Invisible Carry-on is the result of over 500 fellow travelers banding together with a goal to make traveling quicker, easier, and smarter. A bag that:

  • has enough space,
  • doesn't require check-in,
  • is easy to pack and organize,
  • can be used as a regular backpack once you arrive,
  • looks amazing while doing all of the above.

Everything you need for a pain-free travel experience inside a single bag. 

Scroll down to find out how it can simplify your travel!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                         

EASY PACKING, EASY BOARDING

                                                     

         

Designed for easy packing

Forget about pilling up your things on top of each other. With its wide opening, the Invisible Carry-on packs and unpacks just like a suitcase - quick and easy. 

Always take it on-board

Have enough space for all your things, without having to spend time and money checking your bag. The Invisible Carry-on complies with airline cabin luggage limits, which means you don't need to worry about your things being lost or damaged.

 

                               

ORGANIZE BETTER, TRAVEL FASTER

                     

 

Separate padded laptop/tablet compartment

Keep the important stuff safe and easily accessible. The padded compartment will hold up to a 15.6" laptop. Your tablet and important documents are also welcome to come along for the ride. 

    

Quick pocket for your essentials

Your phone, passport, tickets, and anything else you don't want getting lost now have a place of their own. 

    

A dedicated cable pocket

Mixing your chargers with everything else is never a good idea. Especially when you want to get through security quickly. The bottom cable pocket is here to help you with that.

   

A place for everything else

Your book, glasses and anything else you want to keep safe and within hand’s reach will find a place in the front padded compartment.

 

                             

TRANSFORM AND BRING IT ALONG

                                          

                         

Two bags in one

The thing that slows you down the most is having to bring two bags instead of one. So, we made the Invisible Carry-on compressible. No more compromising between space and comfort. A bigger bag for easy packing and a smaller one for comfortable exploring. Two bags in one. Simple.

 

                                    

ALWAYS A PLEASANT JOURNEY

                                      

      

Explore without worry  

There are things none of us can afford to lose or have stolen. We added a secret secure pocket (the "Rodney") that will keep your passport, cash, or tickets back home safe and hidden.

    

Comfortable fit

A well-padded back and a removable sternum strap for a first-class journey.

 

Rain? No problem

Rain can be a letdown, but we made sure it doesn't give you any more problems than it should. The Invisible Carry-on has a durable weatherproof exterior that will keep the elements out and your things dry.

    

Not another tourist

The problem with most travel bags is that you can't really feel yourself wearing it. It's a label that makes you look like someone who doesn't belong and who locals should try to avoid. The Invisible Carry-on was designed to be discrete and minimal - a beautiful object that makes the right style statement wherever you go.

ABOUT US AND PROJECT CARRY-ON

Proper acting
Proper acting

 Hi! We are Dom and Luke.

We're two guys from a small brand called OPPOSETHIS (a.k.a px urbanwear). We design minimal and functional bags and three years ago we funded the first Invisible Backpack right here on Kickstarter. This is not our first rodeo, nor our first bag. And each bag we've ever made has followed two simple rules:

1. Functional and useful

2. Minimal and beautiful

The unique factor of the Invisible bags is not just the minimal aesthetics or plenty of hidden pockets. Nothing would be possible without the technical and high-grade materials used for all of them. The 800x600 nylon blend is special to say the least. It's not only extremely waterproof and durable, but also light weight and beautiful to look at. YKK zippers and buckles, custom car belt straps, and every other piece that makes each bag an object you won't mind touching. With no visible branding and clean aesthetics, an Invisible bag is an object that's beautiful inside and out.

So, what are we doing here again?

    

Project Carry-on

Over the last 3 years we got asked on several occasions whether we would ever design a travel bag. So, 3 months ago we decided to finally go for one. But instead of just designing one, we made it a bit more interesting. 

We documented our design process from start to finish and tried to include as many people as we could. People commented, sent us emails and answered surveys. They collaborated and gave us loads of ideas. It was an amazing learning journey and we couldn't be prouder with what came out of all of this. We call it Project Carry-on, which you can find here.

It seemed only fitting to finish the project the same way it began - together. And Kickstarter is the perfect place for that. With that said:

A huge thanks to everyone who participated on helping design the Invisible Carry-on and also to those who are helping bring it to life! 

Risks and challenges

As I mentioned before, this is not our first rodeo. We've been constantly designing and producing new bags over the last 3 years. We have the materials and the place, all we need is a minimum quantity to get the ball rolling.
If the project gets more funding than expected, our delivery time might change. But if that happens, we will keep you informed during the entire campaign. I think there are already enough projects that fail to do this.
If you have questions or concerns, you can always comment on Kickstarter or email info@opposethis.com and we will be quick to help you out!
