When looking for the best luggage, best carry-on or best smart luggage you will likely find the Away suitcase. I have been very impressed with the built in battery capabilities and the durability of the suitcase. Like I said in the video this does not have a high end premium build to it, but if you’re looking at luggage in the $200 price range this is worth the premium for the battery capabilities and compression feature.

This video is not sponsored, I am happy to share my experiences because I love the brand and want to share better menswear with the world. Have a product you would like me to review? Comment below or email info@thekavalier.net

Suitcase looks cheap and flimsy for $250 there are better options.

Anita Cooper says:

You might want to mention to people that they have to create an account in order to get the $20 discount. Took me a while to figure it out (got the info from another site), but I was determined to get that discount from you since you were the first to convince me to get the luggage.

Mike Johnston says:

Thank you so much for your review(s). I have just purchased my Away carry-on. I travel to SEA from SFO every other week, so I am looking forward to traveling with it. Great work on your channel also.

CF Schz says:

do you have to charge the battery itself?  I’m debating on buying this for my daughter’s school NYC/DC trip..

Pabs says:

Thanks for the update!

Melissa Izquierdo says:

hi! Thanks for the video, would love to see how the battery is taken out of the bag. I recently bought one, and am worried that if the bag has to be checked i won’t know how to remove the battery from it. They said it has one screw, but i don’t see it on my bad, and don’t see any tutorials on thier website or on youtube! Would appreciate your help!!

HonNhi says:

Hi, Jon! Have you had any issues with carrying on the Bigger Away Carry On? Have you had to check it? I’m concerned that I would have an issue and am trying to decide between the smaller one and the bigger carry on.

Darren Write says:

i just brought a carry on suitcase for my recent holiday and it got damaged on the conveyor belt it was a canvas one

Dianey says:

Can you do reviews on leather attaché cases?

John Hayden says:

Thanks for the update. Using mine for the first time this weekend (MIA-LAX) and was wondering where you store the screwdriver and the charging cable. It seems like the zipper mesh pocket would work or may fit in pocked with the laundry bag. Have you come up with a clever hack for this?

kongmw says:

Hats off to Away for replacing what was clearly not their fault.

Josh Mondschein says:

Hey Jon – quick question about the Away bag. I agree w/ you that the handle seemed flimsy when I played with it at the Away store in NYC. Does this get annoying with repeated use of the bag? I’m wondering if it’s worth spending the extra $ 300 on a Tumi bag or making a lateral move to a TravelPro. Thanks!

Kane Bobier says:

I hope your channel grows tremendously this year! Stay consistent and you’ll be bound to find it! Great content

Charles Piper says:

Have you been able to pack 1 or more suits or sport coats in one of these? How do you go about that?

Jeffrey Igaña says:

How do we charger the battery in the bag when it runs out?

Dianne Williamson says:

Nice review. Better lighting would have improved seeing the interior features, the black dividers were very hard to see with the ambient lighting in that room. I’ve been considering getting the larger Away carry-on (most of my domestic travel is on Southwest). After this review I’m still on the fence.

Andrea Manalese says:

Thanks for the review! It’s been super helpful. Tried using the $20 discount but doesn’t seem to be applying. Do you know if it’s still active?
