Away’s First-Ever Luggage Sale Is The Perfect Excuse For Stocking Up On Travel Gear
September 9, 2020
Whether you’re packing up the car for long weekend road trips this fall or mentally planning an epic international vacation for 2022, you know you’ll be needing your suitcase again eventually. And if your luggage or carry-on has seen better days — or worse, if you’re still dragging a two-wheel suitcase or scuffed-up duffel bag around the airport — you do not want to miss cult-favorite brand Away’s first-ever sale.
The sale covers literally everything on the site, offering up to 50% off all styles and colors of suitcases, weekender bags, and backpacks as well as convenient travel extras like packing cubes, dopp kits, garment bags, and passport covers. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your luggage, now is the time. Meanwhile, smaller items like sling bags, travel totes, and dopp kits would make great gifts for the upcoming season.
I’ve owned an Away carry-on since I tested one for a story back when the brand first launched in 2015. It’s no Rimowa, but the suitcase has held up shockingly well over time — there are some scratches and I removed the phone charger battery long ago (the suitcase is now offered in an option without a battery, which some airlines will ask you to remove) but it still looks sleek and wheels great. My favorite thing about the suitcase is how much stuff I can jam in there, even though it fits perfectly into every airline’s overhead bin.
I’ve been told by friends that the brand has made several improvements on newer models, so I just might be taking advantage of the sale myself. In my cart right now? The alumnium edition of “the bigger carry-on,” a sleek upgrade from my existing blue polycarbonate standard option, as well as a sleek leather tote with smart features (like a strap that attaches it to your carry-on handle) that make it the ideal travel bag.
