Overview

An all aluminum carry-on with hand-stitched leather handles. An aluminum frame, aluminum corners, and two TSA-approved clasp combination locks replace the zipper for unmatched security and sleekness. Charge your phone to half-way in under 30 minutes with our blazing-fast removable charger featuring USB C and A ports. Engineered with an aluminum exterior, virtually silent spinner wheels, and an antimicrobial interior lining. Aluminum frame cases are heavier than zipper cases, will show dents over time, and cannot be overpacked.

”I love the design of this bag—it feels like a reliable, sleek rolling bag, with design you’ll never get tired of.”

All aluminum everything

We used an aircraft grade aluminum alloy, sourced from the USA, to design our most durable and secure case. The shell, wraparound frame, top corner caps, and hinges are all made from hard-coat anodized aluminum alloys.

Unmatched security

We replaced the outer zipper with an aluminum frame and two integrated clasp locks. Each clasp lock allows you to set your own personal three digit combination code. These locks are TSA-compliant and certified by Travel Sentry.

Whisper quiet wheels

Our 360° spinner wheels are 15% quieter than standard polyurethane options used by mass market brands. They're meant to be rolled—not heard.

    Purchased in 2016 - Best Luggage Ever (Seriously)

    I purchased The Frame aluminum carry-on in 2016 and have used it for every trip since - at least a dozen per year. I added the The Frame checked bag in 2019 and have had an excellent experience with both. My husband purchased both pieces in black as well. Locks, wheels, zippers, etc. all function like new on all four pieces. The aluminum carry ons have a few small dents from rough handling but nothing extensive. My favorite feature is how quiet the wheels are and the fact that they don't stick or get wonky.

    Its like BUTTER, baby…

    Loving the looks of this slick carry on..: I don’t know what it is, but its a totally different feeling hauling around this aluminum wonder of a luggage… it seems like butter is flowing out of the wheels due to the smooth feeling…

    Overall, the BEST carryon luggage I ever had…

    Great!

    My wife loves it. Very sturdy construction. Not much different than our Rimowa luggage which is 3x the price!

    Best luggage ever

    This luggage checks all boxes. Impeccable style, easy to use charger (VERY fast), locks, and even fits in Ryanair cabin. Oh yeah and HALF the price of Rinowa and Tumi and better looking!
