If you could say there is a “hot” luggage brand, Away is pretty much it. And it’s easy to see why. The company was founded by a team of hip, young, social media-savvy travelers who not only produce quality luggage but seem to have fun—and travel a lot—while they do it. All of Away’s luggage (two different sized carry-on models and medium and large checked bag models) feature stylishly simple cases with unbreakable shells, sturdy handles, four pivoting wheels, and well-conceived compartments. The carry-ons have built-in USB chargers while the checked models don’t. And Away’s wide range of colors—including pink, white, and even a limited run of dual-tone models—offer plenty of choices for anyone constantly on the go and in need of a little more pop than a basic black bag.
Tumi has a well-earned reputation for building stylish luggage that can withstand the abuse of even the most diehard travelers. And their newest model line, Latitude, is reportedly not only the toughest hard-sided case they’ve ever produced, it’s also the lightest. Since it’s made with layers of specially woven, self-reinforced polypropylene ballistic material, the outer shell is pretty much bulletproof. Meanwhile, its contoured design, glossy finish, and refined style will fit right in with the private jetset.
