I purchased the Essential Set that came with the Carry-on Pro, Metro Backpack, and Compressible Packing Cubes. Customer service does not have a phone number, so it took a little longer through chat/email for me to receive the delivery updates. They were very helpful to correct my email and make sure that the luggage was delivered in a timely manner.
I only took the Carry-on Pro for my 5 day beach trip. I was able to fit three pairs of shoes, 2 bathing suits/coverups, 5 days of clothes, a medium sized toiletries bag, a 15.6” laptop and battery, and a couple of small books. It would have been too heavy for me to lift into the overhead bin on the plane, so I checked the suitcase and only took a small purse onto the actual flight.
I actually laughed as the suitcase came out of the baggage claim carousel because the light gray color was covered with dark grime and huge scuff marks (wish I would have taken a picture)! The pictures I’ve included show that the luggage does appear scuff free after using the dry erase sponge included with your purchase. Save yourself an hour of scrubbing and purchase the plastic suitcase cover if you even think that you may check your monos suitcase. The wheels worked great on cobblestone, and the handle was sturdy as I carried the suitcase up stairs, but I had some trouble with the telescopic handle on the way back to the airport. I feel that I had packed it too tight and it was impeding the handle from smoothly coming all the way up at times.

I spent a couple months doing a ton of research. I was trying to decide between the Away and this brand. If you email them they will give you a detailed comparison of the two companies which helped me make my decision! I travel with my carry on 95% of the time even international! I received this product and the color and quality was top notch. Very light and the wheels were able to move in every direction so smoothly. The customer service was so impressive as I wanted to exchange this for the bigger carry on plus. Not only did they accommodate my request, I was able to gift this to my brother who is very excited to use it!Monos United Kingdom2 years ago
Thank you for the feedback, glad to hear that you loved your new Monos case! Also so happy that the exchange worked out well for you and your brother :)

I used the Carry-on Pro and the Metro Backpack for a 12 day trip through Italy. While the Carry-on Pro did not fit as much stuff as I'd hoped (I'd recommend it for 7 days tops), I managed to make it work. This luggage combination was really nice for a short trip especially when you are moving around a lot. The Carry-on pro is very sturdy and held up really nicely being dragged through the streets of Rome, Naples, up and down the steps in Positano, on busses etc. Not to mention the fact that I ended up gate checking it. The suitcase definitely got pretty scuffed up but the most important part to me was how well it held up and how comfortable it was to lug around. I wiped it down with the provided sponge when I got home and I'd say about 90% of the marks came off, and the rest may come off with a little elbow grease. If I hadn't checked the bag, I'd probably have 0 lingering scuffs. I will say that you should definitely check the specs on the front pocket to make sure your laptop fits because even though my laptop is pretty lightweight, it did not fit properly in the front sleeve, bummer. All in all, I'd say this suitcase held up really nicely and made my travels a lot more comfortable.

So far so good. The terrazzo carry-on pro is very beautiful and scratches turned out not very visible. I especially love the front pocket, with this pro size, I can fit in a 15 inch MacBook Air but only in the pocket outside of the webbed one since I stuffed the inside of the luggage too much. The front pocket does take some space of inside the luggage so I think the pro version’s inside storage capacity is less than the regular version without front pocket.
I ordered the compression cubes together with this when the luggage was in stock and cubes are back ordered. Even though the luggage was in stock, Monos was going to wait until the cubes are restocked then ship my order altogether. I needed the luggage earlier so reached out to Monos, and they kindly shipped the luggage to me first and then the cubes arrived one month after. So just an FYI for people who are going to order back ordered items together with in stock ones.

I really liked the overall feel and design of my carry on pro. Smooth and glided around with ease. I love the outer pocket for convenience. The one thing that I wish it had was a bottom handle because I have it on my other carry on and found it to be extremely helpful when loading and unloading into overhead compartments or in and out of the car. Other than that, really solid product.
