This is my go to for traveling- I have both the carry on and the medium size. I love the green colorway. Overall, these are great hard case luggage options but there are some details that could be improved in production. One of which is the zipper and wheel quality- both have started to deteriorate quicker than other luggages that I have owned.

The customer service and in-store buying experience (Bond St, NYC) is the best I've ever experienced. I purchased The Large in Black. Although it scruffed easily, the suitcase is very durable and fit all I needed for a 10-day vacation in an organized fashion.

I've had my Away suitcase for more than four years at this point and I'm so pleased with how it's held up! The larger carry-on has traveled with me across the world and back and I've never had issues with the size, even on smaller domestic flights. I've never had any issues with the wheels, handle, or zipper, which is a miracle considering how much I overpack it.

Feedback

The suitcases scuff really easy and show marks all over, which is unfortunate but not a deal-breaker. I was surprised at how quickly mine got beat up but it still looks good and functions well.

I've had the larger carry on suitcase for a few years now, and it works perfectly for my needs. I had a problem with the battery (my fault), and Away replaced it quickly and for free.

Purchased 3 large suitcase for each member of the family and it works so great. Lightweight, elegant design, easy to fit a lot of clothes with the compression system, it stays organised. Love it. Will be the carry on soon.

I bought my Bigger Carry-On luggage a few years ago back in London, and since then I've never traveled using another bag. It's so pretty, practical, lightweight and so spacious inside. Quality is great too, mine only has a few scratches here and there. Truly recommended!

I have the largest suitcase (which I bought without realising just how huge it is) and have no complaints. It could probably fit enough clothes to last me a month, and the compression system works really well. The outer shell feels cheap-ish, but it's quite durable. Not obsessed with how easily it scratches though - I've used it maybe 6-7 times and the suitcase already looks pretty beaten up.

Feedback

Would be great to be able to personalise the suitcase completely, down to the colours of the zips.

I love my Away Bigger Carry-On. I've never had any issues carrying both domestic and international flights. It's lightweight, has a ton of space, and has held up great over the past four years. I haven't traveled with checked luggage since I made the switch to Away.
