Every globetrotter and frequent traveler understands the value of quality luggage. Poorly made and performing luggage can make the already burdensome walk from Gate D2 to A1 in Atlanta seem downright treacherous.
About a year ago, I took a chance on a new luggage company called AWAY. Their content caught my eye on social media and I dipped into their website to see what AWAY was all about.
3 days later, I purchased the “Bigger Carry-On,” (they don’t get points for a creative name). I was immediately impressed with the sleek design and hard outside shell. The bag was incredibly light but also structurally sound.
AWAY makes packing and organizing a breeze, the two compartments help keep all packed items quickly accessible. Rolling a full suitcase around is effortless, as you should expect to enjoy a very smooth roll whether on 2 wheels or 4.
By far my favorite feature, and the one that has saved the day multiple times, is the built-in electronics charger.
That’s right, this bag can charge up to two cell phones at the same time! All of my friends get a kick out of it. That feature has saved the day on multiple occasions.
I was a little bummed to learn that many airlines are banning “smart-bags” because of associated dangers lithium batteries carry. However, the built in battery is quickly removable should TSA give you any trouble.
At $245 for the larger carry-on makes an AWAY suitecase an easy investment for a frequent traveler.
Note: We receive no commission and have zero affiliation with AWAY. We just really like their bags!
