Rimowa's Topas Aluminum cases are among the lightest and sturdiest cases in the world. The grooved aluminum-magnesium shells will protect against severe humidity and extreme temperature changes and stand up to the stresses of frequent travel. With first-class quality and fine interior details, Topas has everything required by the demanding traveler.
PROS: Very pleased with the purchase and service rom Luggage Pro: Rimowa Topas Aluminum Mini Trolley (Discontinued Model) is smaller than the usual carryon but adequate for a week's travel. Striking appearance, and seems well-built but durability remains to be seen. And the brand is not cheap. Made in Germany.
CONS: The manufacturer's polycarbonate versions will be less expensive, might weather dents better, and will be lighter, but aluminum is a personal preference.
