We are pleased to introduce our new collection of fine aluminum luggage and briefcases. The Classic Collection includes five sizes of luggage for the traveler and two styles of wheeled briefcases. ALEON luggage and briefcases are designed with functionality, durability, security and style in mind. ALEON owners can be assured of a quality product made for the long haul.
We are proud of the quality and workmanship of our luggage. We have partnered with a fabricator who has been shaping sheet aluminum for over 20 years. Our luggage is molded from aircraft grade aluminum alloy sheets and riveted for strength.
You’re standing beside the luggage carousel after a long flight. You have a hard time picking out your tired old suitcase because—let’s face it—it looks the same as everyone else’s.
Finally you see it coming, noting that it’s damp and dirty from the rainstorm outside. As you hoist it from the conveyor belt, you notice the zipper is fraying (again). You can’t help but shake your head, knowing it’s almost time to replace your suitcase (again).
Then, as you turn to exit the airport, you notice a man retrieving his own luggage from the conveyor belt. Unlike your pitiful fabric suitcase, his bag is made of clean, sleek, stylish metal. The man and his luggage look so cool you can’t help but wonder if he’s a rockstar—or an international spy.
Have you ever been in this situation? If so, you’re already familiar with the attractive appeal of aluminum luggage.
The good news is you don’t have to be a rockstar (or a spy) to travel like one. In this post, we’ll reveal the benefits of aluminum suitcases and steer you towards the perfect bag for you.
What Is Aluminum Anyway?
You have a roll of aluminum foil in your kitchen drawer. And you know aluminum features in everything from beer cans to car engines.
But what exactly is it? Here are a few fun facts to share with your friends the next time you pop open an aluminum can:
- Aluminum is the most plentiful metal in the earth’s crust
- It’s the second most common metal for making things (after steel/iron)
- It’s lightweight, strong, and easy to combine with other metals
- It’s a great conductor of electricity while being resistant to corrosion and heat
So what makes it such a good choice for luggage? One of the keys lies in the weight. In fact, a block of aluminum weighs only one-third as much as a block of steel the same size!
5 Reasons You’ll Love Aluminum Luggage
Now that our brief science lesson is over, let’s talk about luggage. Here’s why you’ll love aluminum for your carry-ons, checked bags, and everything in between.
1. Nothing Says “Style” Like Aluminum
Aluminum alloy suitcases have been around since the 1930s, but they’ve exploded in popularity in the past few years. If you flip through a gossip magazine and spot a celebrity inside an airport, chances are they’re wheeling an aluminum suitcase beside them.
Simply put, aluminum luggage is refined, elegant, and timeless. You just can’t make that type of statement with a fabric suitcase.
2. Aluminum Suitcases Are Durable
Aesthetics aside, the biggest appeal of aluminum suitcases is the durability. If you treat it with care, expect your luggage to last indefinitely.
Unlike fabric bags, aluminum luggage won’t tear or fray. There are no zippers that can snag or break. The metal casing might get a few dings and dents over the years, but the luggage itself is virtually indestructible.
3. Aluminum Luggage Is Secure
Even if you invest in luggage locks for your zippered bags, are your belongings really that secure? A thief (or an airport security agent) can easily bypass or break those locks and get into your bags.
The best aluminum luggage comes equipped with TSA-approved resettable combination locks. You won’t find that level of security in other types of baggage. This allows you to travel worry-free through the airport and wherever your final destination might be.
4. Aluminum Luggage Will Make You a Better Packer
Do you have the classic problem of overpacking for every trip? Do you often get hit with overweight fees because you’ve got too much crammed into your luggage?
It might take some getting used to, but aluminum suitcases will actually improve the way you pack. Why? Because they don’t stretch and flex like fabric bags, you can’t create “extra” space that isn’t there.
Considering the way the airlines seem to raise their baggage fees every year, every ounce of weight you save packing will save you money. You’ll get better at packing only the items you need for your trip while leaving everything else at home.
5. Available in a Variety of Sizes & Styles
Are you a frequent business traveler? A weekend warrior? Or do you just want durable luggage that you won’t have to replace anytime soon?
Whatever your travel style, there’s a piece of aluminum luggage that’s perfect for your needs. Here’s a quick overview of your options.
Available in two sizes, an aluminum carry-on bag is a must-have for frequent flyers. The 19″ option is ideal for international travel, while the 21″ bag meets most size requirements on flights in the US.
Looking for a small, lightweight carry-on that’s easy to open in-flight? Our vertical carry-ons fit the bill (and under the seat in front of you) and are available in sizes ranging from 16″ to 21″.
Traditional Checked Bags
Pack smarter and more efficiently with a durable full-sized aluminum suitcase. Get yours as small as 26″ or as large as 32″ to accommodate all your packing needs.
