Away Just Released The Aluminum Edition Suitcases

Away Just Released The Aluminum Edition Suitcases

Whether on a plane, train, or automobile, carrying a sleek suitcase makes traveling feel luxurious. While the hunt to find the right travel companion isn’t always easy, Away recently launched their Aluminum Edition—a four-piece collection of the brand’s best-selling unbreakable, polycarbonate shelled suitcases—which is trendier than ever.

 

Away launched in 2016 with the “Carry-On” in an effort to make people’s travel experiences easier, but since its inception the brand quickly garnered traction in the travel space and expanded their products to fit more traveler’s needs. Like other Away suitcases, the products have built-in ejectable phone chargers, TSA-approved locks, and now come in sizes “The Carry-On, The Bigger Carry-On, The Medium, and The Large,” to fit modern needs.

 

Not only does the exterior shell have a brushed finish, the suitcase becomes personalized with every use. Over time, Away says the surface will begin to show marks from travel, which serve as subtle reminders of your travel stories.

 

Feeling inspired to start collecting your own travel stories with your suitcase? Head over to awaytravel.com to browse the Aluminum Edition for yourself.
