I travel a ton, so having the right gear is key. Have you ever seen someone walk through the airport with a crappy, old suitcase that is barely functional? As if travel isn’t stressful enough, having a bag that doesn’t roll correctly or is overly heavy is simply not ideal.

Away has more than one solution for your luggage woes. My personal favorite is their latest drop, The Carry-On with Pocket. Its unbreakable polycarbonate shell will protect your valuables inside whether you choose to check-it or carry it on with you. The inside has a hidden laundry bag and interior compression system, while the exterior features an *ejectable battery that charges your phone, 360° Hinomoto wheels, TSA-approved combination lock, and my favorite component, the pocket.

Made from abrasion and water resistant nylon, the exterior pocket is good for holding boarding passes, features a padded interior safe for your tech: 15″ laptops, magazines, or iPads, and has extra interior pockets good for storing phones and passports while on the go.

All-in-all, The Carry-On with Pocket from Away is the ideal bag for those quick trips when you don’t need to bring your entire closet with you. However, if you need a bit more room, there’s also The Bigger Carry-On with Pocket for those needing to bring just a bit more. Both come in Black or Blue colorways.

*Ejectable battery is compliant with all airline policies, TSA-approved, and safe to fly.
