April 2017, Side by Side™ Founder Antoine d’Haussy, a French native based in Hong Kong launched the Power Packer on crowdfunding platforms (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Makuake). A couple of months later with hard work and plenty of good luck, he got the support from 9500 backers over 62 countries. It was simply the best launch we could have imagined for Side by Side™. The funds raised in our campaigns allow us to focus on our users and innovate for our next product launch.
Antoine has worked in the luggage and computer bag industry for over decade. As a first-hand witness to the ever-changing needs of carrying modern tech, he launched his own brand to create travel accessories that can streamline any journey. Born out of a passion for detail, design and functional materials, Side by Side™ travel gear is infused with thoughtful and progressive features that cater the needs of the smart global traveller. With the launch of our first product, we hope to keep making unique travel gear that you’ll take along to your next destination.
