Evaluation

There are surprisingly few suitcases made with pure carbon fiber. Needless to say, due to the relatively high cost of materials and processing costs, though carbon fibers are considered to be lightweight and durable in character, they are not so popular in suitcase markets. This design adopts a flat panel of carbon fiber and is combined with an aluminum alloy frame. The shape of the suitcase itself is very basic and not particularly cool, but the framework structure is very strong, and some metal parts are adopted from the laptop, and it can be said that there is a preparedness for the cost. The visual effect and tactile sensation on the surface of the matt-polished carbon fiber are good, and it would be very attractive for males with a passion for cars. The case cannot be opened unless you pass the fingerprint reader. You can take out a computer, the flat panel or papers, documents, etc., from the top to the bottom after opening the case cover, which is very convenient. By using the battery installed in the draw bar storage space, it is possible to provide the electronic locking power of the suitcase and directly charge the mobile phone or notebook when necessary. It is convenient to take out the battery, and you can also carry it around, which feels like carrying a case key by wearing it. It features genuine leather hand towel on the back two-layer structure, and you can see at a glance that it is a product especially designed for high-end businessmen. We think that the refined workmanship and the smart and thoughtful details are the main reason for receiving the award.
