Luggage designed to stand apart

Monos is committed to creating premium luggage with no compromises. See the up-close comparison photos.

Monos is shown on the left.

Custom-designed handle

Monos’ high-grade aluminum handle is custom-designed with a 45-degree angle for stability and four adjustable heights. Beis' only has two fixed options, which are often too high or too short.

Ultra-smooth finish

Beis' rough exterior resembles industrial sandpaper, unlike Monos’ refined matte finish, which features subtle graining, creating a smooth appearance from a distance.

Premium straps

Monos attaches its industrial-grade straps to the wheels and handle with screws for a secure fit, as opposed to Beis' which attaches its straps to the inner shell using glue.

Airline size compliance

Thoughtfully considered dimensions that suit personal travel styles, as well as the airlines traveled with most frequently, Monos' Carry-Ons will fit in the baggage sizer and overhead bins of all major airlines.

Compare Monos vs Beis

Monos was founded in Vancouver in 2018 by three childhood friends who, fueled by their shared passion for travel, sought to create luggage that seamlessly blends sophisticated design, accessibility in pricing, and an eco-conscious business model, all while making a statement at baggage claim.

In the same year, Los Angeles-based actress Shay Mitchell founded BEIS, inspired by her personal travel experiences to create products she herself would love. This shared vision with Monos founders emphasizes accessibility in making beautiful travel items. Both brands showcase meticulous attention to detail and visual appeal, qualities often found in higher-priced alternatives.

Where Monos truly sets itself apart, however, is through its notable commitment to sustainability and its high quality design, influencing the elegant simplicity of its products.

what customers are saying

  • “I have been doing research on luggage companies for a few years now – there isn’t anything else out there that compares to Monos.”

    Cory S., WI, USA

    Verified Buyer

  • “This is the best luggage on the market. It’s so sophisticated, and so much thought went into the design. I almost didn’t buy it, and now I say to myself, ‘What was I thinking?’”

    Silvia H., NY, USA

    Verified Buyer

  • “I spent a lot of time debating this carry-on and the other popular D2C brand, but I'm so happy with my choice. The pockets are everything! It makes such a different to have some built-in pockets for keeping small items in their place.”
