Products / Travel

It’s safe to say Away made quite a name for itself in the travel luggage space, and now the brand is inevitably expanding from its hard-case beginnings. Now, the super successful company is growing its product offering through its new line of four soft-sided suitcases.


Named the Expandables, the soft luggage is made from durable, high-quality, water-resistant woven nylon and allows travelers to increase the size of the main compartment by 4 to 5 centimeters using an exterior seam. A slim nylon front pocket is ideal for easy-to-grab items like a magazine, book or a 15-inch laptop.


Similar to the hard-shell bags, the soft bags also are equipped with TSA-approved locks, 360-degree spinning wheels, a laundry bag and a compression system that divides two sections of the interior.


Away’s new bags are available in four colors (black, navy, asphalt and green, plus a limited-edition rouge) and come in four sizes: the Carry-On costs $275 (with a capacity of 37 to 42 liters), the Bigger Carry-On costs $295 (with a capacity of 47 to 52 liters), the Medium costs $325 (with a capacity of 73 to 80 liters) and the Large costs $345 (with a capacity of 106 to 114 liters).
