Away Aluminum vs ARLO SKYE Aluminum vs Iroion aluminum

Looking at pulling the trigger on one of the 3 mentioned above.

Wanted to see if anybody had feedback how these 3 compare. Looking for the biggest/best (for the $) carry on

Thanks!

Yes, many people. Any other questions or that was the entire query?

I had a few bags mentioned above, but after detailed reviews in the away thread that sealed the deal for me

Thanks

I couldn't justify spending 2X for Tumi. So I recenty purchased the aluminum away bigger carry on and love it. If you buy it, you have 100 days to return it for any reason. A lot of other bags have similar features, but for me, the compression straps along with their packing cubes makes packing and hotel unpacking a breeze. Only heads up is that the BCO will definitely not fit in the coach overhead section of regional jets. I still have about three more trips before my 100 days are up but after a couple of domestic trips, I'm very satisfied.

I posted my feedback twice. Sorry cannot figure out how to delete this comment. My feedback is below! Go with Arlo Skye!

Go with the Arlo Skye Aluminum Carry-On.

I picked the Arlo Skye Aluminum Carry-On. Excellent build quality, the locks are solid, and it comes with a removable charger has both USB A and C ports. The hand-stitched leather grab handles on the Arlo Skye have a realllly nice feel. I returned the Away Aluminum Carry-On within the 100 day trial. The Away Aluminum Carry-On dents like a peach with even the smallest impact - even if you place it in the overhead. The Away aluminum bag looks like a copy of the lower end Xiaomi Aluminum Carry-On. It's also so much heavier than the Arlo Skye.

Bigger Carry On. Bigger than published carry on size, but supposedly fits inside those sizers airlines use.
