About Sterling Pacific

Sterling Pacific manufactures full aluminum travel cases from 5052 aluminum with reinforced A380 aluminum corners.

The cases feature Impact Bearing Ridges on the front and back of the case (USPTO patent no. US-D988723-S), and full-grain Italian leather handles. The leather comes from an independent tannery based out of the small town of Chiampo in the Italian region of Veneto.


Sterling Pacific travel cases feature a true full aluminum construction, meaning that in addition to our 5052 aluminum body, we use die-cast A380 aluminum not only for the reinforced corners, but even for wheel housings, trolley housing and the trolley handle. These parts are typically made from plastic by other luggage manufacturers.

Our small team dreamed, designed and engineered the perfect no-expense-spared aluminum luggage in 2019, and the first production run of Sterling Pacific travel cases was finally ready to be sold in 2021. The travel cases are made in small batches with an obsessive attention to detail in our contract factories in China under our team's close supervision.

Every detail has been perfected with our core clientele of frequent flyers, pilots and other aluminum travel case enthusiasts in mind.


The origins of the Sterling Pacific name date back all the way to June 22nd of 1907, when Richard Herz and his brother Carl Otto registered their jewelry & watch business in Reno under the name R Herz & Bro, Inc.

The Herz family, native of Leipzig, arrived in Nevada after years filled with travel, having worked in Dresden, Vienna, Budapest and London before making the journey across the Atlantic. Remembered as true Nevada pioneers, the Herz family built their business to become a local staple over decades, known for their commitment to excellence of their jewelry and watch products.

In the 21st century, the corporation was renamed Sterling Pacific after the Herz family had already shut down their store. In 2018, the company was acquired by the brand developer Galton Voysey, and by 2021 a new product line of aluminum suitcases - inspired by the travels & legacy of excellence of the Herz family – was launched under the Sterling Pacific banner.
