German Maison RIMOWA is widely known and celebrated for its ever-growing repertoire of numerous new suitcases and travel accessories ranges. While stunning luggage options like the Quartz capsule collection and the One Bottle Case Silver may have served as bonafide head-tuners, the latest suitcase is a classic reborn. For 2022, RIMOWA has unveiled a reimagined rendition of its Original Pilot Case, still with its iconic signature design but with updated touches for the modern travelling professionals.
RIMOWA’s Original Pilot case is the perfect suitcase for journeys, whether it be for your daily commute or for short-haul travel. This case is expertly crafted with an ultra-tough grooved aluminium exterior and features RIMOWA’s patented Multiwheel system, which guarantees stable and effortless steering thanks to ball-bearing mounted wheels with cushioned axels. It also features a stage-free telescopic handle, that is engineered to offer seamless stage-free adjustment for maximum comfort and smooth manoeuvrability.
The Original Pilot case echoes the classic aesthetic of the Original suitcase collection. However, the new case features a uniquely designed top opening, that allows easy access to items. The TSA-approved locks can be easily opened in an instant to make for easy baggage checks when passing through security, but guarantee total safety for your valuable contents.
Inside the Pilot case, you’ll find a padded compartment that can either hold a laptop up to 16 inches or be removed to transform the business case into a versatile toolbox. There are pockets of multiple sizes that help to keep your essentials organized, from two zipped pockets intended to hold batteries and chargers, to a vertical pocket designed for a small water bottle or umbrella.
RIMOWA’s Original Pilot case is priced at AUD$1,990, but there is an excellent reason why. Not only are you getting an aesthetic suitcase that’s made with ultra-tough aluminium, but it is also backed by a 5-year warranty. Plus it includes a complimentary leather luggage tag and sticker set. Who doesn’t love a sticker set? But in all seriousness, you’ll be investing in one of the best and only pieces of luggage you’ll ever need to buy for the rest of your life. These cases can survive even the clumsiest baggage handler, although, for the price, most would likely opt to carry this small case on themselves.
