July is a new luggage brand that has just appeared on our radar. The Australian startup launched its first carry-on late last year and recently expanded its range to include stunning, checked luggage perfect for frequent flyers.
The July Carry-On, Checked and Checked Plus are considered hard cases available in a series of earthy colours for refined travelling. The cases all feature similar designs adapted to meet specific sizes. The Carry-On also benefits from an ejectable battery with USB and USB-C docks for charging both phones and laptops on the go.
July cases are designed to be unbreakable. They are made from aerospace-grade German polycarbonate; a material that minimises damage and optimises function. The outer shell boasts custom constructed anodised aluminium bumpers to further protect the cases from drops, mishandling and general wear. The telescopic handle adjusts to any height while the soft-to-touch rubber makes it a pleasure to hold.
Inside, July’s Y-Strap Compression System is a heavy-duty strap that pulls down firm to maximise space. All three case sizes are shaped to nestle inside one another perfectly, so they’re easy to store between trips away.
The team at July were not happy with available wheels, so they designed their own. SilentMove 360° is a double wheel system that glides across all surfaces. Extremely quiet, they can effortlessly handle the cobblestones of Europe and are backed by a lifetime guarantee.
As a nice little bonus, every July case comes with a hidden laundry bag that is smell-proof and compresses down, leaving the remainder of clothes crisp and clean.
If it’s time for a luggage refresh, the hard cases from July are sure to impress even the most seasoned travellers. They are available now with prices ranging from $295 to $395 with options to add personalised monograms.
