New favorite luggage to carry on!

I have a new favorite carry on bag!  I have used it for three trips and I love it!

Here’s what Away says about their bags:

“Quite simply: the perfect suitcase. Developed from hundreds of travel stories from friends and seatmates, and designed for the way people actually travel. We don’t make “smart” luggage, we make thoughtful luggage—featuring unbreakable shells, interior compartments, and built-in USB chargers—using the best materials in the world. The result is luggage that is beautifully, functionally minimal. It’s luggage that helps you find your way by staying out of it.”

I have to say that I think they did a great job.  I bought the larger carry on- Size 22.7” x 14.7” x 9.6”   Weight 7.3 lbs   for $245.  It comes in great colors too. I bought black which is perfect for me – the 4 wheels are really smooth and I have dragged it all over airports and streets with no problem.  I use a huge bright pink luggage tag and since I don’t check it, I can always find it!

There is an inside zipper compartment, dirty clothes bag that tucks away and a flap that compresses the contents.  You can fit a lot into this bag!

It has fit in all the overheads I encountered so far- A320,  Enbraer, and a 727.

I can fit enough clothes in for several weeks or have extra room for a weekend trip.  It has a USB charger to charge my phone.  I haven’t tried it with my computer but it works great for my phone- no more looking for outlets in the airport!

They sell several sizes- carry on, bigger carry on, medium and large.  You can even have it monogrammed- so fancy!

I really wish they would send me a medium one in a pretty color in case I ever want to check a bag.  I really try hard to never, ever check a bag.  (hint, hint, hint)
