Paqsule Self-Cleaning Bag

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-04-08

Traveling just got a whole lot cleaner thanks to the Paqsule Self-Cleaning Bag. Armed with 20 premium features, including a USB charger, this revolutionary bag changes the way you travel. The Paqsule Bag has a one-touch operation to start cleaning. Good for over 17,000 cleanings, Paqsule eliminates germs and odors on everything you put inside. To achieve this, it implements O3 and UV-C technology – the same is used for hospitals and professional sports teams. The PaqTech System works in both the Paqsule and the Paqsule Lite editions. In addition to the cleaning power, the Paqsule Bag offers a high water resistance level as well as a removable shower pouch. It even has a special pocket for your smartphone and exterior straps for a yoga mat or tripod. Finally, with adjustable straps, you can wear the Paqsule Bag as a backpack or carry it as a duffle.

Hi @Jeffrey Yes! You'll be able to add to the order once we send out the survey in the next 7 days.
Jeffrey Smith
Congrats on reaching (and exceeding) your funding goal. I had not checked back in since I pledged for the Paqsule bag. I now see the gray color Paqsule lite bag, which looks fantastic! Is there any chance to increase/add to my pledge to get the original and the gray Paqsule Lite bag?
Paqsule
Thank you @matt for the support. We're beyond excited!!
Matt Kilcran
YES! GREAT NEWS. Can't wait to get this bag. Congrats Team Paqsule!

@william - The $279 was our price once the $229 and $239 packages were sold out.
William Wu
To clarify, what is the difference between the 239 pledge vs the 279 pledge
William Wu
I had pledged the Paqsule Plus Bundle. What is the big difference between this and the other ones besides the backpack straps?
Paqsule
@Kelvin Yes - the early bird price includes backpack straps. It was our gift to early birds and a update was sent about it about 10 days ago. The Paqsule Logo/Branding will be as shown in our video and all the images.
Kelvin Chong
Does the Paqsule early bird special include backpack straps? It shows on the comparison chart Paqsule vs lite that it is included. Alison please confirm if logo/branding of Paqsule would be small and discreet?
Peeranut Songprai
I wish you could ship this awesome product to Thailand :/
Paqsule
@Kim there will be a USB to Mini USB Cord and you can use the same charger as your phone or tablet if it takes a Mini USB.
Kim Forslund
is a swedish chraging adapter included or can i use any phone/tablet/computer charger?
Paqsule
@espiler thank you for the feedback. We do appreciate it and will take it into consideration.
espiler
Very excited for this, guys! Only thing to mention is I want to be the third to echo a desire for less intrusive branding on the bag. Generally high-cost/tech items like this tend to brand subtly and by style. If the bag comes with a massive red "stamp" on it, I'll just end up coloring it in with sharpie, or patching over it, which would be a shame for such a nice product. For some examples check out these other very successful kickstarter bags with minimal, subtle branding https://www.peakdesign.com/everyday-backpack

@Tom We did test different fabrications and garments within the bag. Our recommended usage is to fill it up to 50% capacity during the cleaning cycle. Since O3 attaches itself to Oxygen, it needs the air to work efficiently.
Paqsule
@christopher The difference is material, finishes, handles, front straps, backpack straps and organizational features, but the tech is the same.
Tom
Just a question - when you had your bag tested by a third party for cleaning - your results were for the bag itself not the individual items - how do you know it's cleaning the individual items if you didn't test those for odors and bacterial? Do the cloths underneath get the benefits or just what's in the open - exspecially if you have a full bag.- is it the more you have in less cleaning because of less open space - important to know
Christopher Mc Verry
Is the only difference in the lite version & the regular its material & the no backpack straps. Also is the lite waterproof as the regular is & does it come with the charger function?
Sang Jun Park
Hi
Im backer of your fantastic bag. I cant wait to receive it
Ive just come up with the question regarding recharging of the battery for sanitizing.
I understand its connectable to electricity.
Now, where you guys are which i assume is USA uses 100-110 volts
Where i am which is Hong Kong
Uses 220 volts (not sure about hz)
So the question is
1. Is the machine ready to receive variety of volatages around the globe(other words, free voltage)? 2. Do you only provide the electrical cords fitting US or would you provide other types depending where it will be sold or delivered to? 2.
Paqsule
@Bryan The bag is great for everyday use. It all depends on how much you're carrying, but we have always envisioned it as a crossover bag for anything that may come up for you from school, to travel, to gym and you can now use the same bag for it all.
Bryan Brito
I know the bag is advertised more for travel and gym use but is it a bag that can be used as an everyday carry or is it to big for that? Ex: college student
Paqsule
@asianboy Paqsule Early Bird Special will come with the backpack straps as well.
Asianboy8969
Will the Paqsule $229 come with the backpack straps or do I need to select another pledge to get the straps? Thanks, Brandon
Paqsule
@kaniawati We don't have the option up, but you an increase your pledge by the Paqsule Lite amount and we can make the note in your account for shipping.
Kaniawati Zainal Abidin
So psych out. Backed an awesome innovative project. Any "earlybird option" to have a paqsule (with backpack strap) and paqsule Lite together? Thanks.
Paul
Hello! This a very interesting project and hope the execution is just as smooth as the funding process. I agree with Abdul and would like to reinforce his point on reconsidering the branding colors and placement on the bag. This is a big consideration for me, especially with the premium version, as I would expect it to have a more conservative appearance.
sifly
hi,
can i upgrade my backed to add one more Paqsule Lite to my order ?
(i backed to the "original Paqsule"). i don't find if it possible.
Sultan Batawi
Hi guys?
Wanted to ask if the lite version can carry a laptop and what is the difference between it and the original model ?
Also if I toke one for the 229$ pledge can I change that to the 449$ two pieces?
Paqsule
Hi @solomon - no plans for different color-ways at this time. We will have some for Holiday 2017.
Solomon Lee
The Paqsule Lite looks fantastic! Are their any plans to add color schemes to the classic as well? I'm a classic backer but really prefer the aesthetic of the new Paqsule Lite.
Paqsule
Hi @Jon - Paqsule Lite has the same dimensions as the classic Paqsule. The weight difference comes from the different fabrications and finishes.
Jon Hale
Hi! I backed the Paqsule and can't wait to get it in my hands. I was wondering if you could post the dimensions of the lite vs the regular bag. Thanks!
Abdulqader Katouah
Hello,
I'm a new happy and excited backer, unfortunately Saudi Arabia is not listed within the countries available for shipments. It would be great if you can help me enjoy this amazing product of yours!
Paqsule
@Sean That's right! YKK Zippers.
Sean Delaney
What kind of zippers does the bag use? YKK? Thanks.
Paqsule
@Abdul Thank you for the feedback. We do appreciate it and so glad you dig the bag!
Abdul Nabi
Just backed and a great example of why Kickstarter rocks... BTW my $0.02 on design (I'm ex-frog design)... I'd look at the bright branding decision on the bag... many folks buying high-end functional products (vs. luxury or "bling") tend not to be huge fans of bright branding (talking about western markets)... maybe a shade of grey like on the handle but darker vs. red? The triangle start button can provide you with a lot of unique branding vs. splashing your name all over the bag... anyway I'm sure you'll find folks that would also argue the opposite view with just as good points.
Paqsule
@Bobbi We do recommend that you leave space in the bag so that there's enough air to for the O3 to circulate throughout.
Bobbi
hi does it work well if it ready filled up? or like washing machine 80% full? thanks.
Paqsule
@Cheung 1) It does go through standard security. You do not need to remove anything in the process either. Just your laptop as usual. 2) The bag has 10,000 Hours of battery life. This can be around 17,000 uses, but will be less if you use the battery to recharge your phone as well. 3) you do not need to refill or do any other maintenance to the device. Only to recharge it.
4) It will have to be sent to the U.S. when the warranty is used.
Paqsule
@Eduin thank you for the support - Once you go through the 17,000 cycles, you could buy a replacement system on our website.
Eduin
Brilliant idea guys!! I had to back this project. I was wondering that once the 17,000 cycles your team estimated the bag gives how would it be possible to get a new cleaning system? would it be through the warranty or would it be have to be bought?
Cheung Ho Wai
1) Does the bag pass through the security of the airport as there are some mechanical devices for the cleaning mechanism of the bag? (I buy the idea to use the bag as hand carry but I am very concerned if the bag could pass through the security)
2) How many times of laundry/cleaning could the bag perform before it wear out?
3) Do we have to refill the device from time to time for the chemcial used for cleaning?
4) For the warranty, it has to be sent to U.S. in case of any defects?
Paqsule
@CKM There is no drying mechanism inside of Paqsule, so while the clothes may still be wet, the bag will no longer fester bacteria and odor, making it a clean environment after you remove the wet items and want to put in clean clothes again.
Paqsule
@Jason - It's looking like a late June ship date for us. If anything changes, I will be sure to let you know. - Ravid
CKM
If the clothes get wet after gym, will it still be wet after putting in the paqsule?
Jason
Do you think this might be delivered by Father's Day? Shipping destination is Bay Area/Northern California
Paqsule
@Leslie Rodriguez - The PacTech device uses O3 and therefore doesn’t penetrate the leather, but it will remove the odor and bacteria depending on how extensive they are. You are able to kill the bacteria inside the gloves by having the velcro strap around the wrist open towards the device.
Leslie Rodriguez
Hello! I backed this with the intention of using it as a gym bag. My choice of exercise is kickboxing. How would the gloves fair inside this gym bag, as I normally spray vig/h2o inside and air them out? Is the technology able to penetrate the nappa leather to kill the bacteria inside the gloves? What items is the tech unable to penetrate?
betty
Cool idea! Can't wait to help fund you guys.
