It’s no secret that frequent fliers have a thing for smart-looking luggage; it’s an extension of who they are.
Since Away first launched five years ago, the minimalist luggage has become popular with those who like to travel in style. Amex even added a temporary $100 credit towards Away as part of the Green Card’s annual perks that just recently ended.
Today, Away introduced a new aluminum collection in four metallic colors — silver, onyx, gold and rose gold. The exterior shell is made of anodized aluminum, which is unbreakable — ideal for travelers who like to look good and travel hard.
Away’s carry-ons have an ejectable battery for easy charging and removal. All sizes have TSA-approved locks, self-positioning handles, reinforced corners, 360° spinner wheels and a pocketed interior with a compression pad for extra packing space. They can also be personalized with up to three initials.
The suitcases are priced as follows:
- The Carry-On: Aluminum Edition, $475
- The Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition, $495
- The Medium: Aluminum Edition, $575
- The Large: Aluminum Edition, $595
All products come with a 100-day trial period, so travelers can test drive the product before fully committing.
