below we’ll explore the different types of Monos travel luggage, their features, and how to choose the perfect one (or few) for you!
carry-on luggage is the most convenient option for short trips or for those who prefer to travel light. Monos offers several carry-on options, including hardshell and softshell luggage. like stated above, the hardshell luggage is made from a polycarbonate material that is nearly impossible to break and the beautiful softshell options have both nylon and vegan leather finishes making them water and scratch-resistant. there’s 3 hardshell options, the carry-on, carry-on pro and carry-on hybrid & each of them come in two sizes, regular and plus.
the carry-on pro is designed for seamless, functional travel and is my personal fave because of the built-in front compartment that allows for easy access to your travel essentials. it easily fits a 15″ laptop, passports, wallet, etc and keeps everything protected under the same aerospace-grade polycarbonate as the rest of the case.
the metro bag collection is absoltuely stunning. pictured below is the ivory duffle and i’m obsessed. this sleek profile, water-resistant, ultra-microfibre vegan leather duffle is the perfect multi-purpose companion for everyday travel. it’s roomy interior is designed to keep all your essentials organized with a sleeve that fits up to a 15-inch laptop and inner side pockets that allow for easy access to your water bottle, wallet, kid’s tablets, etc. I LOVE the built-in trolley sleeve because it fits securely around the handle of any Monos suitcase making it one less thing to carry when your hands are already full.
checked luggage is the perfect option for longer trips or if you need to pack more items. Monos offers two sizes, medium (70L) and large (99.2L), depending on your needs. the check-in large is what I went with and it’s ideal for families who need to pack more items while the check-in medium would be the perfect size for solo travelers who require more than a carry-on. i have to say that no details went unnoticed while designing this luggage. from the high performance 360° spinner wheels, tsa-approved combination lock, adjustable telescopic handle with 4 height settings, anti-microbial interior fabric and y’all it only weighs 10.5lbs, leaving lots of weight for all your personal items.
the zipped panel on one half of the suitcase keeps your shoes and other items tucked away, while ballistic nylon compression straps and a cover panel with pockets keep your clothing compact on the other half. large, thoughtfully placed pockets maximize every inch of storage, meaning you can get more out of every trip.
being the world’s most indecisive person, it wasn’t an easy choice deciding what colour to go with since all ten colours are so beautifiul, but utimately I decided on desert taupe and couldn’t be happier. also wanted to note since everyone love’s freebies, that all the check-in luggage comes with an anti-microbial laundry bag and two shoe bags, plus a vegan leather luggage tag.
Monos has a variety of different luggage accessories, including waterproof luggage covers that provide head-to-toe protection from all the dirt, scuffs, and scratches that usually come with checking luggage when travelling.
Monos compressible well-structured packing cubes are designed fit perfectly in your Monos luggage (set of four fits all carry-on sizes and the set of six fits all check-in sizes) to save space allowing you to keep your clothes and other items neatly organized and compressed and. say goodbye to messy, over-stuffed suitcases, they’re so last year. before y’all come at me… sure you can buy packing cubes anywhere BUT unlike traditional packing cubes made of cheap materials that rip or break after a few trips, these compression packing cubes are made to last with all-premium materials. the exterior is constructed with tear-resistant nylon twill, while the interior features the same luxuriously soft, anti-microbial fabric found inside the travel suitcases.
in conclusion, choosing the perfect travel luggage is important for a stress-free trip. Monos offers a wide range of travel luggage options to choose from, making it easy to find the perfect one(s) for you. if you need one more reason to feel good about your purchase, Monos promises to donate 1% of its revenue to non-profit organizations dedicated to sustainability. whether you’re looking for a carry-on, checked luggage or accessories, Monos has you covered. so, pack your bags and get ready to embark on your next adventure! just make sure you don’t forget to pack all the snacks to keep your kids quiet on the flight, ha!
