Arlo Skye’s The Carry-On Is One Handsome Piece of Luggage

Smart and designer luggage are all the rage now, and it’s getting difficult for manufacturers to stand out. But the backers behind the newly launched Arlo Skye may just have the chops to pull it off.

The brand’s simply named The Carry-On is at once striking, chic, and modern. The case owes its looks to an anodized aluminum-magnesium alloy shell which exudes a distinct air of modern industrialism. This replaces the industry standard polycarbonate exterior to provide added durability (it’s 2.3x stronger) and seriously lighten overall weight (it’s just 9.5 pounds empty). The design is, of course, lockable but closes without zippers which only adds to its sleek silhouette. This all wraps around a 38L footprint that’s 22” x 14” x 9” around — the maximum approved carry-on size for all major U.S. airlines. It moves on patented, whisper-quiet Silent Run Lisof which are guaranteed to be 15% quieter than polyurethane alternatives.

But, The Carry-On is more than a handsome face. Unlike most other players in the designer luggage field, it features a removable, TSA-approved battery pack. This added functionality is ideal for trips where you might not need the extra juice, and prefer instead to lighten your load. Should you opt to carry the 10,050 mAh pack with you, you’ll be provided with enough backup power to charge an average smartphone up to six times. It’s engineered to recharge today’s devices up to 75% faster than typical battery packs. Built-in surge and short-circuit protection also ensure you never fry your precious mobile electronics.

The collective resume of Arlo Skye’s backers reads like a who’s who of design industry execs. Decades of experience from heavy hitters (Coach, Louis Vuitton, Tumi, Kate Spade, and All-Clad among them) in the fashion and houseware niches was brought to bear to design a luggage line that screams luxury and ultra-modern design appeal without the sky-high price tag usually associated with both. Indeed, comparable bags from the likes of Tumi and Rimowa can cost twice as much.

The Carry-On is available in Sardine Silver, Champagne, or Penguin Black directly from for $550 USD (with free shipping and returns in the continental U.S.).
