Don't let its diminutive size or sleek profile fool you – this is one ironclad piece of luggage armor. My color – yellow – means my bag is not only supremely cheerful when it pops out of the arrivals conveyor belt, but it also stands out amongst a crowd of dull black and navy.
It's still a young bag, having only traveled from the states to the UK and from the UK to South Africa, but aside from a few scuffs it's in pristine condition.
It's easy to pack, and the space between the handles on the inside of the main compartment fits a pair of sandals perfectly. The small zipper pouch that's suspended mid-bag? My spice and hot sauce storage. Guarantees they won't get jostled or crushed. (Can you imagine?)
So far I have nothing but praise for my lemondrop. It's glorious both inside and out, robust, easy to pack, rolls like a dream, and fits snugly even on a crowded Tube at rush hour.
Not sure I could ask for anything more from a piece of luggage.
I was a lifelong Tumi customer.... until I stumbled across Arlo Skye at Public Hotel in NYC. I preferred zippers as the boutique does not yet have this collection. Ordered the navy online and it showed up in 2 days. I've only been on one trip but the quality excellent. Whoever designed this thought about the little details. The removable charger is surprisingly fast. The wheels blow away my old Tumis.
I learned about this company from a friend who had just bought a few as gifts for his team. He had purchased the model with clasps instead of a zipper. The clasps are interesting but I've always preferred zipper since i can stuff my suitcase to the brim and still get it closed by pulling on the zipper. So when they released this new version, I decided to bid farewell to my old Tumi and decided to give this company a try. Just traveled with it from LA to New york and the suit case help up great. it fit perfectly in the overheads with room to spare. rolls so quietly and the got a few compliments from the cabin crew! Thanks Arlo Skye!
My husband and I purchased two zipper carry-ons for our 1 week trip to Portugal and Spain. We were looking for something stylish so the decision came down to Rimowa or Arlo Skye. We ended up going with Arlo because the pricepoint was terrific and they are lighter weight than the Rimowas we saw. I got the sea sage and he got the black. The cases are just beautiful. Great amount of packing space, the large pocket on the divider surprisingly came in handy. We used it to pack scarves and shirts and other items that we didn't want creased. The straps keep everything in place and you can place a jacket on top of the straps and still have everything close.
I finally took the plunge on a quality piece of luggage after my latest bargain purchase broke mid-way through an international trip. I have no regrets - this carry-on has been perfect. It is solid and gorgeous, and after my first trip with it I can say it's functional and convenient as well. Definitely recommend!
