A thoughtful combination

We chose to reinforce the most critical areas of the Hybrid Collection with aluminum, and use our aerospace-grade polycarbonate for the shell – all in a refined metallic finish. The result is the best of two worlds: the resilience and sophistication of an aluminum suitcase, combined with the light weight and durability of a polycarbonate case.

Zipperless aluminum frame

We dispensed with the traditional outer zippers and outfitted the Hybrid Collection with a high-grade aluminum frame at its core, securely riveted to the polycarbonate shell. Two latches with integrated TSA-approved locks provide an added layer of security, while giving you quick access to your suitcase contents without needing to pull a zipper around the entire case.

A superior carry-on handle

We focused on rethinking the critically important but often neglected telescopic handle, custom-designing every part from the ground up – from our rocksteady high-grade aluminum tubes to our sleek, ergonomic handle with the release button cleverly hidden underneath.

Impressed

I've been turned off by hardside luggage in the past (corner dents, lack of organization, loud wheels, flimsy construction, handle not locking), resorting to my reliable mid-range 20" Samsonite soft-side spinner or 20" duffle (quicker) for work travels. I vowed that if I were to return to hardside as a carry-on, it would have to be very good. This might be it.

There really isn't anything revolutionary overall about this hardside (hardside luggage itself and 9/11 were probably the two biggest changes towards carry-ons since the turn of the millennium), but there is an abundance of engineering details and thoughtful touches that made it stand out to me when researching amongst several hardside carry-ons in this $200-$300 price range (bought during the launch sale).

Starting with addressing my past concerns- the aluminum corner reinforcements, all the organzing quirks while still being flexible, the ultra smooth and quiet Hinomoto wheels, and aluminum frame- it checks off every box of my concerns. I also didn't want zippered expandability and an overly exposed button handle- both future failure-points.

As for nitty-gritty stuff that they got right- the handle mechanism surprisingly doesn't intrude into the compartment too much, yet it's extremely sturdy and rattle-free- the tolerances are just better all around and it gives you a sense of sturdiness. The handle itself locks in several heights- there seems to be 4, but I'm able to lock it into a kid/short height (see picture).…

Aesthetically pleasing but...

The Hybrid Carry-on Plus is a lovely bag. Great to look at and it has awesome features but it isn't as durable as I thought it would be. After a single, one-way trip, it has some battle scars that cannot be removed. It sustained some small dents in the body, as well. If purchasing this bag purely as a carry-on, it may be ok but I don't think it's durable enough to endure the rigors of being checked-in without significant damage.

Best luggage available at this price point.

If you have +/- $350 to spare on a carry-on, then the Monos Hybrid is the best luggage available at this price point. Are there better options? Possibly, but be prepared to pay significantly more.

The product looks as good as the photos and campaign film. I’ve inspected every inch of the product and can confidently say that the Hybrid is very well engineered and constructed. The polycarbonate shell feels substantial enough to protect contents with a slight flex to absorb impact. The aluminum frame, rivets, corners and hinges are rigid. The parts align and fit perfectly. The handles feel very strong. Note that the mechanism of the handles protrudes into the luggage slightly more than other brands. This is a small compromise given the quality of the handles.

I spent considerable time researching before making this purchase. Expectations were high and Monos delivered. That said, there’s always room for improvement. Monos decided to use Sentry locks that are partly made of plastic. The brackets and hooks of the locks that are mounted onto the luggage are made of a metal composite. However, the top piece housing the combination lock is all plastic with a coat of metallic paint. While I’m certain Sentry and Monos thoroughly tested the lock for durability, I wish the entire lock was made of a metal composite. This upgrade will certainly cost more and increase the weight of the product.

The aluminum frame is what gives the Hybrid it’s rigidity and the main reason I chose this…

I OWE MONOS AN APOLOGY

Check-In Large review:

I have to say that initially, I was skeptical when I first received my package (Check-In Large) because I have never used hard shell luggage. To be honest I created a return ticket and was going to return it because I just was not accustomed to a suitcase feeling so light... And after using it, I now how much of a positive it is.

Construction quality/Durability - Check-in Large:

I thought it wouldn't survive an international trip from Texas to Eastern Europe but boy was I wrong. By the time I got it in Europe, it was SPOTLESS, and I mean SPOTLESS like it was still brand new, not even a scuff... I did put a suitcase cover on it but it was essentially spotless nonetheless. If there were any scuffs Monos thankfully included an eraser in my Hybrid Carry suitcase that I could use to remove them (but as I said, there were no scuffs).

Weight - Check-in large:

As for weight, the big check-in feels like paper (of course exaggerating a little bt but it's super light compared to my previous cloth suitcase).

Fit - Check-in Large:

It fits an entire village... sorry for the pun but this suitcase can carry a lot due to the built-in compression slots.

Hybrid Carry on thoughts:

Weight - Hybrid Carry on:

The Hybrid carry-on came in and looked really nice. It was a little heavier than expected but the premium construction makes it worth it.

Wheels and handle on both Check in Large and Hybrid Carry on:

The Hybrid carry-on (and the large check-in) suitcase is…
