To this day the Topas Aluminum collection has not lost any of its fascination. Time and again, it is the original that sets the standard. Originally developed for tropical travel, the sturdy casing made of aluminium-magnesium alloy is unfazed by turbulence and strain. It is also excellently protected against temperature fluctuations and dependably protects its contents from high humidity.
PROS: This suitcase is extra deep allowing easy packing of bulky ski wear and lots of it for extended travel. It is very good looking and chic
CONS: It is not as durable as should be expected for a product at this price point. Granted it was handled very roughly, but on its very first outing the airline baggage handlers separated one of the wheels from the frame. The rivets tore the aluminum when the wheel was pulled off. Aluminum is expected to dent, but not as severely as what happened on its first trip.
