The front of the Vybe packaging shows the MAINGEAR logo prominently along with a fading away depiction of the Vybe chassis. It is very bright red, which is MAINGEAR's color.

The first of the skinnier sides of the packaging shows a large MAINGEAR logo center, MAINGEAR, being founded by Wallace, an automotive enthusiast, of course, represents what I consider a gated shifter pattern. The top is adorned with the brand name and webpage while the bottom lists the shipping and inventory labels. For shipping, we have the fragile and "this side up" warning. Lastly, we have the lower logo with the description of what's in the package along with the applicable UPC/SKY barcodes. The SKU barcode is for Microcenter stores as MAINGEAR has partnered with them a short while ago for the distribution of their hardware and systems.

The rear of the packaging shows an inward look at the front fan mounting and inside the chassis from a rear angle. The top is flanked once again by the brand name and logo along with the Vybe chassis name.

The opposing skinnier side of the box is almost exactly like the opposite edge. The same SKU label is present; the only addition is an inventory control sticker next to the large logo. This looks to be from the OEM factory, which makes the chassis.

The Vybe chassis pulled from the box we see has a plastic bag to help with abrasion during shipping. The top and bottom ends are enveloped in soft polystyrene style end caps, which is our preferred packing material to see as it does not crack like standard Styrofoam and also tends to avoid rubbing abrasions along with better impact absorption. The glass panel has a cling film that you remove once you get the chassis unwrapped.
