“What a great suitcase! It’s held up to Italian cobblestones, been on and off countless planes, been pulled through 20 Italian villages, rough French streets—and still looks and performs like new. What a great company; we’re fans for life.”

“Last month I traveled to Portugal and Spain for two weeks using my Medium Flex Away Bag and loved how much space I actually had! Leaving for my trip I underpacked hoping for a few “inches” of souvenir space. Needless to say, I had tons of room!”

“We were so, so satisfied with our Bigger Carry-On! The wheels pivoted so well over European streets and there was so much space for everything I wanted to pack. My chiropractor and his family decided to buy three of these pieces for their trip to Italy after I told them how easy it was to pack and travel with this Carry-On. Bravo for the Away team!!!”

“I can’t say enough good things about this suitcase. My husband and I travel up to 5 months on some trips and we need formal and casual and sport clothes in different seasons. We are able to do that with each of us using an Away set made of The Large, The Medium, and Carry-On bags. These bags are designed so well with the compression flap and the mesh side—it makes it so easy to pack! Plus, customer service is so good! Thanks, Away!”

Luggage that stands out

The difference is in the details. Here’s what makes our award-winning Classic suitcases the best in the world.

Lightweight and durable

As the original hard shell innovators, we’ve perfected the lightweight and virtually unbreakable shell of our suitcases. Built to withstand even the harshest of conditions.

Just roll with it

Smooth-gliding, 360° spinner wheels that move you forward, and never hold you back. Navigating everything from busy airports to cobblestone streets has never been easier.

Fit for every trip

The durable, lightweight, and impact-resistant 100% polycarbonate shell is designed to withstand any journey, and lets you pack (and protect) even more.

The Away Nod™️

Away travelers know—it’s the best-looking luggage at the gate. From handles to wheels to colors, every suitcase component has been thoughtfully considered by our design team.

Handle it all

Our high-grade, quick-release trolley handle is designed for maximum comfort and better maneuverability, featuring two adjustable height settings.

Get a (better) grip

An additional underside grab handle makes our lightweight suitcases even easier to grab and lift—especially from the baggage claim carousel. (We’ve been there.)

Packing level: expert

Our patented interior compression system means you can maximize every inch of packing space, thanks to our double-buckle compression pad and thoughtful interior pockets.

Zip up. Lock in.

Keep all of your belongings safe and secure, thanks to a TSA-approved combination lock and ergonomic, reverse coil zippers that easily pull, swivel, and rotate.

Trips aren’t one size fits all. That’s why our suitcases come in five perfect sizes: Carry-On, checked, and The Trunk. So you can pack up for three days, or three+ weeks.

Superior quality testing standards

We don't take quality lightly. Our suitcases are put through 30+ tests—from the shell, to wheels and zippers—that simulate real-life travel elements and extreme environmental conditions. Luggage with the highest level of durability and longevity is our priority.

Drop tested

We know you can't control how your luggage is handled. That's why we perform drop tests, loading up the suitcase and dropping it on every face, corner, and wheel, to ensure there is no cracking or denting.

Jerk tested handles

Our suitcases are designed for maximum stability, especially when it comes to our handles. We perform a jerk test on all handles to simulate real-life use to ensure that they remain stable, even from the toughest handling.

Wheels for the long-haul

There’s a reason why our custom, smooth-gliding wheels are raved about. We perform a mileage test to simulate everything from rough airport carpets to cobblestone streets to ensure our wheels roll smoothly—wherever your travels take you.

"I thought luggage was luggage - fill, zip and go. However after three weeks of traveling with the carry on flex I now appreciate how light, durable and easy to roll it is. I took it on five flights, three trains and two miles of walking over cobblestones and it’s a solid as when I started."
