Yes, our battery (we call it a portable charger) is removable from the exterior with no tools required.  It just pops out with one click and it is fully compliant with all airline regulations.

In case of a Carry-On gate-check, it will take less than a second to pop it out and take it on board with you.

The battery itself is top shelf in quality and efficiency.  It has both short circuit and surge protection for maximum safety. We only use the finest quality lithium-ion cells on the market - sourced exclusively from Panasonic and LG.

Airline regulations prohibit spare lithium chargers in checked baggage.

Spare lithium chargers are only allowed in cabin baggage as long as the capacity of the battery is less than 100 watt hours.  The Arlo Skye charger is fully compliant with all airline regulations with a capacity of 10,050 mAh — equivalent to 37 watt hours.

Our battery is ejectable with one click from the exterior. We call it user-centric design.

The Polycarbonate Carry-On (and The Polycarbonate Check-In) are engineered with textured virgin polycarbonate shells.  They are lightweight and forgiving on impact.  The shells have "flex" allowing you to pack more in.  These travel pieces feature an aluminum-alloy frame, aluminum-alloy corners and TPE polymer handles. They are 1 lb lighter than The Aluminum Carry-On.

The Aluminum Carry-On is engineered with a 7 micron anodized aluminum-magnesium alloy. It features an aluminum frame, aluminum corners and full-grain leather handles. It is superbly chic but requires extra care during your travels.  While aluminum-alloy is stronger than polycarbonate, it is malleable with no give because it absorbs external impact while keeping what's inside from getting damaged. The Aluminum Carry-On will acquire nicks and dents which tell the narratives of their owners. The Aluminum Carry-On weighs 9.5 lbs — the lightest aluminum carry-on in the market.

If you have to gate-check often, we suggest going with The Polycarbonate Carry-On. 

As per airline guidelines, we measure our suitcases inclusive of all appendages: wheels, the side stands, top and side handles and locks.

The Polycarbonate Carry-On: 22" x 14" x 9" inches.

The Bigger Polycarbonate Carry-On: 22.8 x 15.0 x 9.6 inches

The Aluminum Carry-On: 22" x 14" x 9" inches. 

The Polycarbonate Check-In: 27” x 17.6” x 11.1” inches.

The Bigger Carry-On is larger that the official carry-on dimension guidelines of United, American, and Delta Airlines.  However, this carry-on still fits in the sizers and the overheads of the three airlines. It turns out that the sizers are little larger than the published airline guidelines. The Bigger Carry-On size is within the official dimensions of Southwest Airlines.

The Polycarbonate Carry-On: 8.5 lbs (3.86 kg)

The Bigger Polycarbonate Carry-On: 9.2 lbs (4.17 kg)

The Aluminum Carry-On: 9.5 lbs (4.31 kg)

The Polycarbonate Check-In: 10.5 lbs (4.76 kg)

Your locks are currently set to the pre-set combination code 0-0-0.

To personalize your code:
1. Set the dials to 0-0-0 or the last pre-set code
2. Move the switch located on the back side of the lock from A to B
3. Set your 3 digit code
4. Move the switch from B back to A

Your luggage does not come with a key. Both of your locks are set by combination. The key hole that you see on each lock is exclusively for TSA access. As the TSA does not know your combination code, they use a proprietary key to unlock your case if needed.

Use a damp sponge with soapy water to wipe away dust and dirt. For tough stains use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

Like passports, Arlo Skye bags — with every sticker, dent, nick, scratch or scrape, tell the narratives of their owners. And this record of where you’ve been — not what you own — has become one of the most fashionable expressions of luxury today.

Yes. The Carry-On or The Bigger Carry-On will nest inside The Check-In.  We recommend placing The Carry-On or The Bigger Carry-On in the accompanying dust-protection cover and then nesting it inside The Check-In. This helps to protect the interior of The Check-In from acquiring dirt and marks.

Our products are designed in New York and assembled in China.  Parts are sourced from companies based in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and USA.

No. But we do have a "refer a friend" program where you and a friend can score $20 off your next purchase.


We launched Arlo Skye in New York in the Summer of 2016. Prior to that we spent over 14 months designing and developing our first product - The Aluminum Carry-On. Since then we've introduced a polycarbonate line and several collaborations.

Arlo Skye was founded by Mayur Bhatnagar (Louis Vuitton alum), Denielle Wolfe (TUMI alum) and Mauricio Issa Llano (New York-based industrial designer and engineer).

We discovered the name Arlo at a book store in Soho (Manhattan). Arlo is a whimsical children's novel written in 1915 by Ernest and Bertha Cobb with illustrations by Charles Copeland. Arlo, an ambitious young boy, leaves home with his dog, Krit, to follow his daydreams.  Along the way he meets an incredible cast of characters and the book whisked us away on a whim.  We added Skye because we love getting lost in the clouds.

Generally speaking - no. But, as with most things in life, there are a handful of exceptions.

You can purchase some of our travel pieces at Public Hotel in New York and The Edition Hotel in Miami. Arlo Skye does not have any stockists outside of the USA.
