From donning a face mask during every flight to keeping up with your destination’s ever-changing safety restrictions, travel has become more complicated than ever before. And, the last thing you want to worry about is fitting all your belongings into your suitcase—especially if you struggle to pack light or are prone to bringing home more than you originally packed (who can resist local market shopping?). That’s where Away comes in: The direct-to-consumer brand is known for its ever-popular smart suitcases, colorful packing cubes and cleverly designed travel essentials like passport wallets and mini jewelry cases. And now, Away has added a trio of packable bags to its all-star lineup.
The new collection features three styles: a carryall tote, backpack and sling bag—all of which can be easily folded up and tucked into an accompanying small pouch when not in use. This way, you can include that extra bag in your luggage without bulking it up. Each piece is made with a recycled nylon that’s lightweight, durable and water-resistant, to hold up nicely no matter what your journey—or Mother Nature—throws its way.
Whether you’re looking for a new bag to stow all of your in-flight snacks and entertainment or a space-efficient backpack for impromptu getaways, Away’s packable bags are bound to become a go-to travel essential. Below, find more details on each style.
Away’s Packable Bag Collection
Away Packable Tote
If you typically buy more souvenirs than your suitcase allows, you’ll find a lot to love about the packable carryall, which comes in black, navy and orange. Nestled inside a compact pouch, it slips easily into your luggage for packing and unfolds when you need it into a spacious tote that can hold memorabilia and extra travel essentials alike. Plus it’s carry-on sized and can be secured onto your suitcase using an exterior loop.
Away Packable Backpack
Craving some adventure on your next trip, but don’t want a bulky backpack to weigh you down? Available in black and navy, this packable number offers the best of both worlds. It’s comfortable to carry no matter how much you fill it up, thanks to padded straps and its lightweight nylon material. And an elastic drawstring and buckled flap closure will keep your belongings secure as you traverse intense hiking trails or take in all the major tourist sights.
Away Packable Sling Bag
Whether you’re on vacation or running errands, think of this sling bag as a hands-free way to carry all your basic essentials. It can be worn crossbody-style or around your waist and comes in this eye-catching orange hue that makes it especially easy to find in the abyss of a suitcase.
