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.

The Unbreakable Aluminum Edition luggage will be available in all four Away sizes — The Carry On, The Bigger Carry On, Medium and The Large.

They can also be personalized with up to three initials.

The suitcases are priced as follows:

All products come with a 100-day trial period, so travelers can test drive the product before fully committing.
