Away Launches New Products and Colors Just in Time for the Holidays
Our favorite suitcase brand has a whole new suite of colors and styles that will make great gifts for all the travelers in your life. But hurry! Away's limited-edition collections are known to sell out quickly.
If you notice more and more Away suitcases with each visit to the airport, it's for good reason. Several Travel Channel editors and writers use and love Away's high-quality suitcases, and we've previously written about why we think their bags are worth the hype.
If you're shopping for a frequent traveler who's always complaining about packing, living out of a suitcase or endless airport layovers, you can't go wrong with an Away suitcase. I've brought mine to seven countries since I got it over the summer, and I don't think I'll ever travel without it again. It's just too easy to roll through the airport pushing a suitcase rather than dragging one. I bring the battery pack with me on day trips, too, since it can power a smartphone several times over on one charge.
One downside to the growing popularity of Away's suitcases? It's more difficult to identify your own Away suitcase in the overhead bin or at baggage claim if you have to check it, which is why we get so excited when new colors and styles get released. Our favorite classic Away suitcases are now available in six more limited-edition colors, including Amber, Amethyst, Jade, Jewel Blue, Moonstone and Mirror. Away also launched some new products like passport covers and toiletry cases that look like miniature carry-ons, perfect for holiday gifts. Browse more of the new colors and styles to gift or to keep.
The four-wheeled carry-on is a hard shell suitcase with just enough give to accommodate that extra sweater. You can buy it with or without a removable, rechargeable battery pack that nests in a compartment hidden underneath the handle (if you buy the suitcase without the battery pack, you’ll have a tiny bit extra storage). Away’s luggage has TSA-friendly combination locks to keep everything secure and a laundry bag that tucks into a small pouch in the bottom of the suitcase. Inside, a clever compression system keeps everything in place and helps you make use of every available square millimeter. With more colors to choose from for Away's Classic series, you'll never again have to sort through a heap of black bags at the luggage carousel to figure out which one is yours. For even more personalization, add on a stamped or painted monogram on the tag or suitcase itself for an extra charge or buy letter stickers separately.
The slightly-larger dimensions of the Bigger Carry-on might not sound like much, but it's enough extra storage space for an additional outfit or two and ideal for four to seven-day adventures. It's designed to be a perfect fit for the overhead bin of most major airlines and is the perfect gift for the jetsetter who needs a durable, lightweight luggage solution for frequent travel.
The leather Passport Cover is a great stocking stuffer for an embarking world traveler. It keeps lounge access, IDs and credit cards secure, too, with pockets for cards and boarding passes.
Away has been expanding into more bags beyond its classic carry-on suitcases, including The Everywhere Bag. This bag has both a removable, padded shoulder strap and handles for easy carrying, and it will sit comfortably on top of your rolling luggage. It also features a laptop sleeve. This sleek bag is available in nylon, sateen and leather, including three limited-edition styles: Garnet Sateen, Deep Topaz and Winter Night.
Store your dirty shoes in The Weekender Bag's external compartment to keep them away from your clean clothes. This bag has a hidden, padded laptop compartment, internal organization, a removable shoulder strap and a sleeve to securely attach it to your luggage handle for easy towing through busy airports. It fits in the overhead bin. Now, it's available in Rich Navy Leather, too.
Away added totes to their lineup of bags earlier this year, and now, they're also available in Deep Navy Leather. The Latitude has over-the-shoulder straps a removable external band to attach the tote to your luggage. The Latitude fits up to a 13-inch laptop.
Like the Latitude Tote, the leather Longitude Tote has a removable external strap to secure it to your luggage in the airport and transition seamlessly into an urban everyday bag when you're not on the road. It fits up to a 15-inch laptop.
