Want & Need

Wanderlust Wednesday: AWAY

I love travel. I love to travel. I want to travel all the time. I’ve caught the bug and it won’t let me go. The only cure is to travel some more. I’ve even decided to limit my spending on clothes to save up for trips that will blow my mind.

I love to fly. I love the adrenaline rush that I get during takeoff. It’s quite the feeling.

I love being on the road, even if it gets a little hard after more than 3 hours.

Since I’m investing on my experiences I might as well have a trustworthy partner that won’t budge at the sight of uneven terrain and layovers. I’m not talking about a person. I’m talking about The Away Carry-On. This carry-on has all the great features that the perfect carry-on would have to offer and then some… at about half the price of your average luxury brand.

Let’s talk about a few of its features.

  • Size is the maximum allowed by all major airlines.
  • It has “virtually silent” Japanese Hinomoto 360° spinner wheels. I didn’t even know that silent wheels existed.
  • Interior silk lining and mesh accents. Fancy!
  • Removable laundry bag and compression divider. Right on!
  • And last but certainly not least, it has a built-in 10,000 mAh battery that charges smartphones, tablets, etc.

All this plus more features and 4 colors to choose from come at $225 with a lifetime warranty (the battery has a two-year warranty). How does that happen? The brilliant people at Away only sell their product directly to the consumer (A.K.A. no markups). That way everyone has a chance of getting this awesome piece of luggage.

Problem is that even if you purchase this babe today it won’t be available for delivery until February 2016. You’ll get a gift card to redeem it when February comes AND for a limited time you can get The Places We Return To, a book that features travel stories and photos from some pretty influential people like Linda Rodin, John Jannuzzi and more. You can get inspired for future travels while you wait for your new travel companion.

So I’m definitely going to save up for one of these. Will you? Tell me below!
