80L Check-In Travel Case
The body of the Sterling Pacific travel cases is constructed from 5052 aluminum. Substantial hydraulic pressure is used to bend and shape the 1.2mm aluminum sheets to form the body.
5052 aluminum is used in the aviation industry due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance and formability.
Reinforced A380 Aluminum Corners
The load-taking corners of the travel case are reinforced with die cast A380 aluminum. These heavy duty corners are bucked into the body of the case with SAE 304 Stainless Steel Rivets.
SAE 304 Stainless Steel Rivets
Over a hundred SAE 304 Stainless Steel Rivets are individually riveted to hold together the corners, the body and the extruded 6063 aluminum frame of the case.
The rivets have a shearing force of 26,000 pounds of weight per square inch.
Italian Full-Grain Leather Handles
The top and side handles of the case are from full-grain Italian leather. The leather comes from an independent tannery, based out of the small town of Chiampo in the Italian region of Veneto.
As the most durable grade of leather used in long-lasting upholstery, Italian aniline full-grain leather develops a natural patina over time as opposed to wearing out. It contains the entire grain layer of the cowhide with its natural imperfections and marks.
Dual Thru Axle Wheels
The case has two 2.5-inch recessed wheels, built to withstand excessive wear and tear. The wheels sit into the body of the case to be able to take higher forces of impact.
Retractable Aluminum Trolley & Housing
The trolley handle retracts into a die-cast aluminum housing, one of the most unique features of the case, typically made from plastic by other luggage manufacturers.
The top handle bar of the trolley is wrapped in Italian full-grain leather.
The high-fatigue strength of the trolley prevents it from bucking or compressing.
Double Combination Latch Locks
The top lid can be secured to the deep trunk with a TSA-approved, double spring-loaded combination latch lock system, flanking the leather side handle of the case on each side.
Ring Spun Twill Weave Lining
The interior of the case is covered with ring spun twill weave lining.
Contents of the suitcase can be secured with the interjecting buckle straps, and amenities can be stored in the mesh pocket on the lid.
Additionally, the lid of the Check-In travel case houses two shoe pockets.
