Full 5052 Aluminum Case with Impact Bearing Ridges
The core structure of the case is constructed from aviation-grade 5052 aluminum, a non-heat treatable aluminum alloy that can bear a weight load comparable to steel alloys. Over 50,000 tons of hydraulic pressure is used to bend and corrugate the aluminum sheets.
5052 aluminum is used in the construction of planes due to its durability, load-carrying capabilities and corrosion resistance.
Reinforced A380 Aluminum Corners
The load-taking corners of the travel case are reinforced with die cast A380 aluminum. These heavy duty corners are bucked into the core structure of the case with SAE 304 Stainless Steel Rivets.
SAE 304 Stainless Steel Rivets
Dozens of SAE 304 Stainless Steel Rivets are individually bucked to hold together the corners, the body and the extruded 6063 aluminum frame of the case.
Each rivet can take over 27,000 pounds of weight per square inch.
Italian Full-Grain Leather Handles
The top and side handles of the case are from full-grain Italian leather, handcrafted from leather by an independent tannery, based out of the small town of Chiampo in the Italian region of Veneto.
As the most durable grade of leather used in long-lasting upholstery, Italian aniline full-grain leather develops a natural patina over time as opposed to wearing out. It contains the entire grain layer of the cowhide with its natural imperfections and marks.
Dual Thru Axle Wheels
The case has two 2.5-inch recessed wheels, built to withstand excessive wear and tear. The wheels sit into the body of the case to be able to take higher forces of impact.
Retractable Full-Aluminum Trolley & Housing
Manufactured from aviation-grade aluminum, the trolley bar retracts into an aluminum housing. The high-fatigue strength of the trolley prevents it from bucking or compressing.
The top handle bar of the trolley is wrapped in Italian full-grain leather.
Double Combination Latch Locks
The top lid can be secured to the deep trunk with a TSA-approved, double spring-loaded combination latch lock system, flanking the leather side handle of the case on each side.
Ring Spun Twill Weave Lining
The interior of the case is covered with ring spun twill weave lining.
Contents of the suitcase can be secured with the interjecting buckle straps, and amenities can be stored in the mesh pocket on the lid.
Additionally, the lid of the Check-In travel case houses two shoe pockets.

Beautiful piece of functional art.
It’s a bit heavy but so well made, solid and sturdy. The latches click securely. All I need for a weekend outing.
Simply the best
This is the nearly-perfect carry-on piece. When I have the luxury, I very much prefer buy-it-for-life investments in something I'll use indefinitely rather than contributing to a disposable culture. Yes, it is remarkably expensive. But I should need to buy one except this once. I travel extensively for work - one to two flights per week. Nearly all of these are regional flights on small aircraft. I used to be sold on the virtual of one-bag travel. Now I'm becoming convinced that two bags is the way to go. All clothing, shoes, etc. go into the suitcase. On small aircraft, it's going to get gate/valet checked. That's where the bombproof nature of the luggage comes in. The second bag is my personal item, which is a tote. That leads to the one improvement I'd like to see added to this case: a J-hook. Many other top-tier manufacturers build on in for piggy-backing another bag, and it would be a great addition here. I bought one that attached to the handle and confirmed with the good folks at Sterling Pacific that such weight would not damage the handle. It won't. My office goes in my tote, backpack, whatever and hangs from the J-hook. The lower center of gravity creates incredible balance, and I can roll the pair with a single finger. Placing the other item on top, as some do, distributes the weight incorrectly, in my view. This is why a two-wheeled design is better than a spinner with four. This is the only suitcase I could find with an aluminum wheel housing and trolley handle garage. It didn't make sense to me to make the investment and then still have plastic parts external and waiting to be broken or fail. The craftsmanship is stunning. The fit and finish are the best I've seen. The seal is complete. It's a joy to use and has become my trusted travel companion.
This was my husband's 56th birthday gift! He was speechless!!!!! That doesn't happen often but his mouth dropped and no words! What a great travel companion! The customer service prior to the arrival was quick and so encouraging! My entire experience was accommodating, professional and great! Again, my husband was speechless and can't wait to show his travel companion off! He's such a high class husband and he deserves the best. Sterling Pacific he chose you because of the quality and I'm so glad he did! Thank you to all!!!
