One of our fave luggage brands, Away, is bringing in a cool vibe with a new launch just as spring break, summer travel is set to begin. Away is launching the color Sky in their very popular hard-sided Flex luggage collection.
Sky, the light powder blue that may remind you of the beautiful Mnemba Island waters, is actually a re-release as it was initially introduced to consumers back in 2018. The tale goes, back in 2017 when Away launched their Winter collection then a partnership with uber popular Gray Malin, that featured light tone blue color ways that sold out. Over 3,000 Away customers then requested a blue color. They heard and launched sky in 2018, selling over 30,000 units.
The new Flex Sky is available in all sizes— The Carry-On, The Bigger Carry-On, The Medium, The Large and The Kids’ Carry On—on starting today on Away’s website. This color way may also sell out quickly like it did back then so if you’re in the market for a new luggage like me because a certain airline *cough* KLM *cough* damaged yours, now might be a good time to put that compensation dollar to use. If you’re in the Chicago area and want to get the luggage right away (see what I did there) you can pop into their store at 1121 N. State Street., its also available in their 12 other locations nationwide.
The features that makes Away rank as one of the best luggage on the market since launching in 2021, will be available in this Sky Flex release. The signature polycarbonate shell, expandability feature, a TSA-approved combination lock, 360° spinner wheels, an interior compression system to help pack more in, and a hidden laundry bag to keep dirty clothing separate.
Each Flex suitcase includes a built-in zipper expansion that increases packing capacity giving travelers added flexibility on every trip. Travelers can unzip the exterior seam to expand the body an additional 2.25” (6cm) for the carry-on sizes and an additional 1.75″ (4.45 cm) for checked sizes, unlocking more space for clothes, gifts, or whatever else travelers might spontaneously find themselves in need of while away.
Away’s Flex suitcases and Insider Packing Cubes are available in Sky exclusively at awaytravel.com and in Away stores beginning March 14, 2023.
