Put to the test

High-strength nylon

01

While this suitcase is soft, the abrasion-resistant nylon exterior is built to handle the toughest travel. We understand the importance of durability, so we've put Softside through rigorous tests, ensuring it remains tear and snag-free, even when facing the most aggressive baggage handling, stacked backseat journeys, and cobblestone streets.

Stand-Steady Stabilizer

02

Our proprietary stabilizer helps you steer clear of wobbles and bag tips, especially when you expand your suitcase. No interaction needed, just a trusty-sidekick.

Weather and liquid resistant

03

Accidents happen. So, we added a light coating to ensure any accidental spills are easy to clean and wipe right off.

Fade resistant

04

Each suitcase goes through a rigorous testing process to ensure travel wear and tear shows up on your passport, not your suitcase. Our Softside fabric stands up to the toughest conditions while staying resistant to any changes in color.

Worth the hype

“Traveled 3 weeks in Europe with just the Bigger Carry-On Flex and my trusty Away Everywhere Bag. The cobblestones and ancient streets were conquered with Away’s sturdy wheels. Never had to “flex” my bag until the last day when I did some shopping. The straps to compress the load are brilliant... Love my Away bags.”
