If you’ve ever been in the market for hardwearing aluminum luggage you’ll know they don’t come cheap. Prices for a Rimowa, the biggest name in the aluminum luggage, regularly climb above four digits. The same can be said for TUMI, which released the Premium 19 Degree collection back in 2016. Well, to those who drool for aluminum but can’t stomach the cost, Away, a direct to consumer brand best known for its understated carry-on, may have just delivered on its mission to disrupt the luggage industry. The brand just released a line of aluminum luggage and it’s half that price.

Starting at $475, The Aluminum Edition by Away sports a rechargeable USB outlet, stealthy Hinomoto wheels, two combination locks and the tough as hell aluminum body. Available now.
