Autonomous Luggage Reviews: The Aluminum Luggage Carry-on


The thought of having your bag being tossed around at the airport can be quite scary, but with this carry-on, you can leave your worries at the check-in point, knowing your items will be safe and protected. The Aluminum Carry-On is handcrafted from Aero Aluminum-Magnesium alloy, also used in car and aerospace engineering, which makes it particularly strong and durable in all travel conditions. On top of that, during the production process, the aluminum is anodized, to prevent corrosion. You won’t have to worry about cracks, scratches or dents, as the reinforced corners absorb the impact in case of falls.

Everybody knows how hard it is to find a suitcase to fit all your needs, which makes letting go of it even harder. This is precisely why the Aluminum Carry-On was built with an extra-long life span in mind, so it can accompany you on all your adventures. The satin finish makes the carry-on look stylish and stand out from the multitude of black bags you’ll see around the airport.


Keeping your items secured is one of the top priorities, especially when it comes to business travel. The Autonomous Aluminum Carry-On comes with two TSA-approved locks, to make sure no one has access to your belongings. Autonomous really thought of everything, and in case your luggage is selected for inspection, the TSA-approved locks allow airport security to use a special TSA key to open it without any damage to the suitcase. The luggage comes with a preset 3-digit lock code for both locks and is paired instructions on how to reset them. In just as few easy steps, your passcodes are set and you are ready for departure. In case you misplaced the instructions tag, simply check the FAQ section on their website and you’ll find a full guide on how to set the passcode there.

Design and Functionality

The inside of the carry-on adds to the sophisticated look by keeping the same aluminum-looking gray tone. It has an adjustable and removable mesh partition that allows you to keep your items in place, even if the luggage is only half-full. The mesh also comes with pockets, making it easy to store valuable items or documents away from clothes.

What adds to the design and functionality of the carry-on is the exterior strap, very useful for keeping your headphones or other small handbag attached to the luggage. This way, you won’t have to worry about forgetting something in the airport, as you roam around duty-free shopping for goods. Tip: it can be paired perfectly with the Commuter backpack that you can also find on the website, for the perfect holiday combination.

The moisture-proof rubber seal is set to protect your belongings from weather damage, no matter in you land in rainy London or humid Bali. On top of that, everybody knows how annoying it can get when you arrive at the hotel, ready to unpack and enjoy the first day of your trip, when suddenly the luggage zipper gets stuck. With the rubber seal and secured locks, that is no longer an issue.
