Out of all of my Instagram posts, I get the most interaction on the ones featuring my Away luggage. Seriously! Last time I posted it was almost a month ago, and I’m still getting messages! Totally not complaining, btw.
I’ve decided to address some of the most frequently asked questions revolving around my investment bag. Hopefully this helps!
So I have the Away x Pop & Suki collaboration Bigger Carry-On. That means it’s light pink.
Q: Risky color choice for a suitcase costing almost $250, because what if it gets dirty and ruined, right?
A: Right. I really thought this one through before I made the plunge. I figured I have the majority of control over my carry-on when traveling, so dirt and mishandling shouldn’t be an issue. However, if you’re the type of person who will hyper-focus on a scratch or scuff, get a darker color. There are plenty to choose from!
Q: How is yours still so clean?
A: Ha, funny. I am one of those people who hyper-focus on scratches and scuffs, but I also enjoy practical things that are pretty. I spoke to Away before committing, and they said a paper towel with soap and water will take most dirt off of their bags. BUT listen to me people: I found that Magic Erasers take everything off of the bag. I’m not joking. After each use, I Magic Eraser my suitcase. Sounds silly, but honestly, not a bad habit for both aesthetics and wellness.
Q: Is it worth the price?
A: Hands-down, no pause, YES. As far as good luggage goes, Away is right in the ballpark. I use mine so often, and it’s still in perfect condition (see above). You can fit a ton of stuff, charge your phone and stay organized. I think that’s my favorite part: the inside is so compartmentalized, but with the right compartments. It’s not fancy or obnoxious. It’s light, durable and and seriously worth the investment.
Q: How much can you fit in the Bigger Carry-On?
A: I’m a good packer (we’ll talk about that one day), but I can generally get up to a week’s worth of clothing/supplies out of my Bigger Carry-On. My plan is to invest in one more for longer/larger trips, but I can’t decide if I want the medium or large (either would be navy).
PS – this post comes at a great time because Away x Gray Malin just dropped! I absolutely love all three colors, but the best part is the inside of the luggage! It’s Gray’s artwork, see? So fun!
