Kit Kubes: Inner Storage Bags to Organize Your Travel Gear

 Get organized and access gear faster with this cube-shaped storage system.

Published on 10.20.2017

Overland riders are always faced with limited places in which to store equipment and supplies for their journeys. With that limitation in mind, Adventure Rider and aerospace engineer Dave Thum saw an opportunity to improve how storage space is utilized and created the Kit Kube system for organizing gear in a motorcycle. “The motorcycle is of course the most storage-challenged of all overland travel vehicles so it’s a great proving ground for a storage concept,” stated Dave regarding the development process.

The Kit Kube is similar to the Packing Cube category of products intended for use in suitcases for ordinary air travel. However unlike a typical generic packing cube, the Kit Kube is designed to be used in a rugged outdoor environment and in vehicles driving on extremely rough roads that subject them to abrasion from vibration. Water, dust, and vibration would destroy a typical packing cube and its contents within weeks or months.

The Kit Kube system allows you to subdivide your gear into kits that make sense to you.

The storage system is made from rugged 600 Denier Poly fabric and thick, high-quality PVC. The transparent PVC panel on the top of the cube allows users to instantly see the contents of each cube, thereby simplifying the search for the item they are looking for. The Kit Kube is flexible and can be overstuffed or flow around anomalies in the storage space if necessary (unlike a hard case).

The first three sizes for the Kit Kubes are:
• Small: 6.5” L x 6.5” W x 3.25” H (2.25 liter); 2.8 oz. (79 grams) $9.95
• Medium: 13” L x 6.5” W x 3.25” H (4.5 liter); 4.2 oz. (120 grams) $14.95
• Large: 13” L x 13” W x 3.25” H (9.0 liter); 5.3 oz. (150 grams) $19.9

As a bonus, the dimensions of Kit Kubes also work well with a typical backpack and carry-on suitcases. This allows a traveler to easily move contents from one “container” to another, which makes for an ideal Fly ‘n Ride scenario. Storage spaces in overland vehicles tend to be small and lack uniformity. Some spaces are not very accessible but are great for storing gear that may only be used in an emergency (assuming that space is accessible during the emergency). Larger spaces need to be subdivided to maintain packing efficiency and utility. Kit Kubes provide flexibility to better utilize your available space.

One thought on “Kit Kubes: Inner Storage Bags to Organize Your Travel Gear

  1. I recently saw luggage cubes for the first time and could see the practical implication of them for certain things I usually stuff loose in my bags ie charge leads/cables/adaptors etc.

    However, for moto use and with the bonus of a PVC window on one side to see the contents, this could be very useful sorting my panniers in a more logical fashion and locating and extracting them when camping out for the night especially in inclement weather.
