The Zipper Collection:
Pros: Very lightweight. Our FreeFlex zipper design allows you to overpack with ease and offers long-term seam protection. The front pocket model gives you quick access to your laptop or pullover without having to open the entire case. Available in an array of bright colors.
Cons: Not great for packing fragile equipment like cameras or wine bottles.
The Frame Collection:
Pros: unparalleled security and protection of fragile belongings.
Cons: Twenty percent heavier than The Zipper Collection. You cannot over-pack as much as you can with The Zipper Collection. However you can over-pack more with this collection than The Aluminum Edition.
The Frame Collection: Aluminum Edition
Pros: Sleek and refined.
Cons: An acquired taste. The exterior will show dings and dents over time—which tell the narratives of their owners' journeys. You cannot over-pack with this case.
The Frame Collection is engineered with two key materials: textured polycarbonate shells and an aluminum frame that is riveted to the edges of each of the shells which close with two integrated clasp locks and corresponding back hinges. The polycarbonate shell will not dent and it has more "give" than The Aluminum Edition.
The Frame Carry-On: Aluminum Edition is entirely made of aluminum (with the exception of the wheels and leather handles). It is not possible to overpack with this collection since the aluminum shells are rigid. The Aluminum Edition will acquire and show dings and dents over time. If you have to gate-check often, we suggest going with The Zipper Collection or The Frame Collection.
Both models give you the ability to three digit codes on each of the TSA-approved clasp locks. Both models also feature reinforced aluminum caps that are attached to the top corners of the case for added durability. They will also ding and dent with time.
The only difference between them is the dimensions.
The Carry-On conforms to the official sizing guidelines of most major airlines. If you mostly fly outside the US on non-US airlines, then we recommend this size.
The Carry-On Max is an inch taller and an inch wider and still fits in the sizers and overheads of most domestic and international airlines (excluding small commuter jets). We always recommend buying the The Carry-On Max unless you routinely fly small commuter jets.
As per airline guidelines, the measurements of our suitcases include the wheels and handles.

Please check to see if the dials on both locks are vertically aligned at 0-0-0. That is required to both open and to close the locks.
Yes, our battery (it is also referred to as "portable charger" or "charger" or "power bank") 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 you have to gate-check your carry-on, just 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. The battery's encasing is made from aluminum which helps to dissipate heat build up.
Our battery is ejectable with one click from the exterior. We call it user-centric design.
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.
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
2a. Zipper Cases: hold the small left most button down with a pen
2b. Frame Cases: move the switch located on the back side of the lock from A to B
3. Set your 3 digit code
4a. Zipper cases: release the button
4b. Frame cases: 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.
Please check that the dial codes are perfectly aligned to the pre-set combination of 0-0-0 or to the combination that you've personally set. If you're still having issues, don't hesitate to reach out to us.
1. Take your luggage to a local locksmith. It usually takes them 5-10 minutes to pick the lock with special tools. If the locksmith needs to break the lock that's fine too. Reach out to us with your order number and we'll send you or the locksmith a new lock to attach to the case. The replacement process takes 5 minutes and requires a screwdriver.
2. You can take it to the airport and the TSA will have a key to open it. You may have to show them proof of purchase.
As part of our five year warranty, repairs are free.
1. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a video of the issue you're having. We'll get back to you within one business day with a solution. If a part needs to be replaced, we'll ship that part to you or a local repair shop in your city. Just bring the suitcase in, mention you're with Arlo Skye, and the repair will be free of charge for you.
2. If you're in LA or NY, stop by the following repair shops to have your bag assessed and repaired in as little as 2 hours.

Use a damp sponge with soapy water to wipe away dust and dirt. For tough stains use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
Arlo Skye suitcases are made of polycarbonate or aluminum-alloy. Over time they will show marks, scratches, and dents (particularly visible on the aluminum collection). Scratches and dents cannot be repairs—they add character to your suitcase. Some customers add stickers to cover them up.
Darker color polycarbonate cases (black and navy) will show less marks than lighter colored cases. In contrast, lighter color aluminum cases (silver and champagne) will show less marks than darker colored cases because the underlying material color of aluminum is silver.
Yes. The Carry-On / The Carry-On Max will nest inside The Check-In. We recommend placing the carry-ons in the dust-protection cover prior to nesting it inside The Check-In. This helps to protect the interior of The Check-In from acquiring dirt and marks.
Pro tip: when nesting the cases, the wheels of the carry-on should face the opposite direction to the wheels of The Check-in.
Our products are designed in New York and assembled in several factories in South-East Asia. Parts are sourced from companies based in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and USA.
Individual products never go on sale. From time to time we do offer deals on purchases of two or more items.
For first time customers, we have a Refer & Earn program where you and a friend can get $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 Frame Carry-On: Aluminum Edition (back then it was simply called, The Aluminum Carry-On). Since then we've introduced a zipper collection and launched collaborations with Audi, Sight Unseen, Auberge Resorts and Dusen Dusen.
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.
You can purchase a limited selection of our suitcases at Public Hotel in New York and The Edition Hotel in Miami. Please give them a call to confirm if they have the suitcase you'd like to see. Arlo Skye does not have any stockists outside of the USA.
