Another common travel problem. 
Another practical Scrubba solution. 

Our latest product, the self-inflating Scrubba Air Sleeve for tech protection and travel comfort, is breathing new life into the way people travel and commute.

For a long time now, we've been excited by the prospect of offering travellers an effective method of tech protection and we're thrilled to have made that goal a reality with the Scrubba Air Sleeve. A lightweight, durable and self-inflating laptop sleeve that doubles as a travel pillow, the Scrubba Air Sleeve promises to help you breathe easy and relax, confident your tech is protected. 

Following a successful crowdfunding run on Kickstarter, the Scrubba Air Sleeve is now available in 5 convenient sizes and 2 sleek colours.

The Story Behind the Scrubba Air Sleeve

Why depart from our famous Scrubba Wash Bag range? As much as we love making it easier to do laundry while travelling, we're eager to keep innovating so we can solve even more of the problems frequently encountered by travellers. Recognising how important technology is in today's fast-paced, highly connected world and struggling to juggle our own devices while travelling, we turned our attention to the ever popular world of tech to see if we could make a meaningful difference. The aim was to design a durable and lightweight travel laptop sleeve that would enable portable devices to be used the way that was intended: unplugged and connected to the outside world. 

There's no denying that the Scrubba Air Sleeve has been an ambitious project that has presented many unique challenges. Yet, convinced we couldn't go wrong if we stuck to our passion for lightweight, durable and multifunctional travel products, we refused to let anything stand in our way. Many months and countless prototypes later, the self-inflating Scrubba Air Sleeve was born. 

Despite being a little different from our existing products, the Air Sleeve remains true to the Scrubba Wash Bag promise to make journeys of all shapes and sizes easier and encapsulates our commitment to quality and versatility. This has made it an ideal addition to our expanding travel and outdoor range. We couldn't be prouder!

Expand Your Options with Self-Inflating Technology

An Airbag for your tech:

The Scrubba Air Sleeve not only self-inflates with a simple twist of its inbuilt valve, but also over-inflates with the help of just a few breaths. The over-inflated sleeve nestles your tech in a buoyant cushion of air, ideal for those moments when maximum protection is the priority - think cycling to work or abandoning your laptop to the unpredictability of the overhead cabins during heavy turbulence! 

A pillow for your head:

These multiple inflation levels also enable the Scrubba Air Sleeve to function as an adjustable, inflatable travel pillow, perfect for camping, catching up on some rest on the train, or even kicking back at the local park. To form a small, comfortable pillow, simply over-inflate the sleeve via the attached valve. The resulting pillow is functional even with a laptop inside, allowing you to sneak in a power nap without worrying about your device becoming a target of theft. For further comfort, fully unzip the sleeve, remove your device, and blow in more air until a large pillow is formed.

With a durable base ideal for rugged outdoor environments and a plush upper that insulates against noise and cold, the Scrubba Air Sleeve makes it easy to both work and rest in ultimate comfort and style.
