There’s no shortage of duffel-style gym bags to pack up all your gear during workouts. Absolutely none of them comes with a facility for sanitizing and deodorizing all the soiled, smelly and dirty gear stuffed inside its compartments. The Paqsule, on the other hand, does.
Equipped with both UV-C (UV light) and 03 (activated oxygen) cleaning systems, the bag can obliterate any nasty germs and bacteria growing on your sweaty gear at the push of a button, ensuring the compartments will never end up smelling absolutely gross. Whether you’re carrying dirty clothes, smelly shoes, or sweat-covered boxing gear, this thing will make sure everything smells fresh from the gym all the way to the house.
The Paqsule’s cleaning system is controlled via the accompanying app, where you can set the amount of time you want it to be sanitized (either 15, 25, or 35 minutes). It measures 22 x 10 x 12 inches (width x height x depth), with a large main compartment, a side-accessible shoe compartment, an internal laptop pocket, a padded front pocket, and various organizational pockets inside. There’s also a removable bag for your toiletry kit, so you can leave the bag in the locker when hitting the showers.
A rechargeable battery powers the cleaning systems and keeps it running for up to 72 hours’ worth of active operation, with an available USB slot for charging your phone from the integrated battery. Other features a water-resistant construction, aluminum side handle, top carry handles, and a padded shoulder strap.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Paqsule. You can reserve a unit for pledges starting at $229.
