Unlike many, if not most producers of luggage today, Skyway has a long history of manufacturing. Today, when over 90% of luggage sold in the US is made in China, Skyway remains one of the few companies whose manufacturing heritage and know-how helps them make products that are trouble-free, lightweight, functional and durable. Skyway's heritage and focus has always been on providing highly functional, durable travelgoods products with an exceptional price-value relationship. They have always had one of the strongest warranties in the industry, but know that the best warranty is a product that is not defective in the first place. Skyway is known throughout the industry as having among the very lowest rates of customer returns. They And, as a 100 year old company, Skyway's focus is definitely long term. They don’t cut corners for short term gain. It is not uncommon for someone to drop us a note telling us of the travels of their Skyway case that they received when they went away to college decades ago.
