Then we have good news: Away launched a new line of hard-sided suitcases that are more useful than ever before.

They’re also more affordable than you might think. Here’s everything you need to know. Read on and get packing!

Why we love Away polycarbonate flex suitcases

Away These new, flexible Away polycarbonate flex suitcases are a travel lover’s dream thanks to sturdy, expandable construction, on-trend colors, and features that seem far more expensive than they really are. The lineup includes a Standard Carry-On Flex, Bigger Carry-On Flex, Medium Flex, and Large Flex— and they’re all easily mixed and matched if you want a full set.

Away has a cult following for a reason. Their suitcases have bells and whistles you usually have to shell out major cash for. The entire lineup of Away polycarbonate flex suitcases boasts 360-degree spinner wheels for effortless transport through the airport and out on the road. All the flex luggage options feature a durable polycarbonate hard shell, zipper expansion of up to an additional 2.25 inches (good news for heavy packers), a TSA-approved combination lock for extra safety, and underside grab handles that are easy to grab from overhead storage.

The suitcases have interior organization pockets and here’s a secret—they all come with hidden laundry bags for your soiled clothes and a removable, washable lining to keep the bag clean. That means you’ll be able to have a new-looking suitcase for years to come.

The Away hard-shelled suitcases come in multiple on-trend neutral colors. All four flex pieces come in standard black and navy options, but some of the pieces also offer a soft pink tone as well as a deep teal.

Which Away polycarbonate flex suitcase should I get?

The standard Carry-On Flex, one of our favorites, allows you to unzip the flex feature to create an additional 2.25 inches of space for any last-minute items. When not fully expanded, this suitcase is the perfect size to carry on and becomes checked luggage when fully flexed. You’ll definitely want to study this list of genius packing tips from flight attendants to make the most of that space, too. If you’re heading on a longer trip or just have more outfits and essentials to tote along on your Labor Day getaway, the Large Flex is the one for you.

Where to buy the Away polycarbonate flex suitcase

You’ll have to purchase the new Away polycarbonate flex suitcase through the brand’s website, and you should probably hurry before they sell out. This company has a cult-like following and now that skies are open and people are booking travel, the fun colors are selling out fast. The Carry-On Flex starts at a reasonable $255 and the Large Flex comes in at $355, making these suitcases an attractive buy for savvy frequent fliers.
