Absolutely love my yellow zipper carry-on max with front pocket and monogram. It’s so beautiful I haven’t checked it because I love how pristine it looks. Instead I only carried it on the plane. It fit easily into the bin above. After placing it above, I grabbed my laptop out of the zipped part for use in flight. Rolling is smooth and super quiet. Travel was easy breezy to Mexico, Florida, New York. Now can’t wait to take my Arlo Skye wheels to Europe and Asia.
Ordered as gifts for company vets and everyone loved their luggage. Customer service was stellar and no detail was spared. Will definitely go with Arlo again.
I needed to replace an old soft bag that lost a wheel and spent a lot of time looking at every brand big and small. I often take shorter trips and prefer to slide my laptop into my carryon rather than taking a second bag, so the front-load option was a key factor for me, and having it integrated into the suitcase a much more elegant solution than a pouch tacked onto the front from other brands. Do note that the front opening does not lock, and should someone want something inside your bag, it is easy to access the main compartment from the front pocket. Security isn’t my primary concern with a cabin bag - and if it were, I’d go with the latch options over zippers. To state the obvious, the hard shell will pick up scratches pretty quickly. This is a reality that you should accept - if you’re not comfortable with you’re relatively expensive luggage showing these signs of wear, I’d recommend considering if a hard shell case is for you. I prefer to think of them as badges from my travel. One highlight is the sturdiness of the wheels and extending handle. Both are top quality and as sturdy or sturdier than those on brands much more expensive. The removable battery was not a differentiating factor for me, but I do appreciate that it has both usb A and usb C, and I’ve found that in a pinch it can be used to provide some extra juice for a MacBook, which is extremely helpful.
I have traveled regularly for decades and never really found the "perfect " carry-on....until I bought this one. I received it the day prior to a very recent 7-day business trip in Europe holding 7 days of clothes without looking like an over-stuffed garbage bag. I love this carry-on!!! Highly recommended...
GREAT FOR SHORT TRIPS. WILL ORDER AGAIN FOR CHRISTMAS GIFT
