Leisure Traveler Luggage Details

Professional pilot, mechanical engineer designed, aluminum/magnesium alloy hard case.

We offer our Paradox Leisure Traveler cases in three sizes, the 22" Roll Aboard, the 25" Roll Aboard and the 30" Check Aboard. All three are available in two color collections:

The Dark Sky Collection is blacked out by hard anodizing the aluminum/magnesium alloy which not only gives the case is stealthy black hue, but protects the alloy from light scratches and weathering.

The Star Light Collection is in it's natural aluminum/magnesium alloy color that is reminiscent of a bygone era of early aviation. It is protected with an anodized clear plating that protects the alloy from light scratches and weathering. 

Star Light Leisure Traveler LuggageDecades of professional flying experience have culminated in our beautiful high end aluminum hardside luggage. We let no compromises into our design philosophy to make the best looking, most functional luggage available at any price. We had very specific design requirements:

  • Our cases needed to be unique and obvious in their quality and style. High-end curb appeal with top quality bespoke looks without the inflated price!
  • We wanted a roll aboard case that was secure from indiscriminate access. Zippers, fabric, clips, snaps and the like are easy targets for quick and easy access to your valuable items. Even if you lock your zippers, a pen is all you need to open a zipper! 
  • Protections from inclement weather, chemicals, and other dangers to your personal items.
  • Protection from impact or crushing for the items inside.
  • Easy access compartment for cell phones, water bottles, hats or gloves.
  • Light weight
  • Easy rolling both in the open terminal or streets but also in the tight confines of the aircraft aisle.
  • Protections from rough bag handlers and diabolical baggage carousels. 

We solved these requirements with something that normally the private jet flyers would carry, an aluminum hard side case! No more nylon fabric to tear and deteriorate. No more unsecured and easily accessed pockets. 

Our roll aboard cases are light, strong, and functional. We provide an open interior separated into two halves of our clamshell case. The design allows for multiple packing options without compromising space. The case half dividers allow for the case to be opened in the terminal without your goods falling out even when standing upright. One side has quick releases so you can access a coat or purse without taking time to unzip. To keep things inside both protected and dry the entire interior is sealed with an innovative all metal tongue and groove seal. The two case halves are locked with special TSA latches which are spring loaded for a one touch push to lock or an easy two finger squeeze to unlock.

Interior image

Savvy travelers often need quick access to items like passports, hats, gloves, or to throw in a water bottle for the trip. We did not forget this part of your needs and added a quick access panel at the top exterior of the case. This quick access panel is located at the top as it stands in terminal or in the jetway. It is a simple TSA locking single latch to open and close. It is just large enough to carry those quickly needed items. It is designed to keep its contents separate from the main case compartments so if your walk to or from the terminal was in the rain or snow, your dry clothes inside the main case will stay dry and clean, We also left this small compartment able to evaporate moisture so if a wet hat or water bottle goes in, the moisture will evaporate out.

Exterior comaprtment

Our cases are very strong and are designed to take a beating so your items inside don't. The aluminum/magnesium alloy we use is both tough and light. The two hand carry handles are a dampened, self retracting design to keep them tucked in and away from danger. Our multistage stepped long retractable handle is twice as thick as normal bags and uses double wide and double deep locks which can be accessed behind the zippered interior. Our handles and latches and feet are all easily field replaced with standard screws if the worse happens. If heavier damage occurs we offer spare parts that you can install or our workshop can replace them for you.

While our cases keep your goods safe and protected they will show the abuse in the form of dents, scratches and dings. While the cosmetics will show your long miles on the road, the function of the case will remain for years to come! Those miles were hard earned by you and your Paradox Case, show them off with pride! Besides now you can put your favorite stickers on your case to show the world where you have been! If heavy damage occurs we can often repair your case in our workshop, just reach out.
