Buying dark luggage can be a little bit of a risk. After all, people tend to default to black, and no traveler wants to cause confusion at the baggage claim carousel or during the weird plane-side dance you have to do with other passengers who get forced to gate-check something.
But with Away’s new limited edition aluminum bag, we don’t think that’ll be much of an issue. It takes the same distinctive shape of the brand’s other luggage and renders it in a sleek anodized deep gray that the brand refers to as “Steel.” It won’t save you any of the dings and scratches that you get with traditional aluminum rollers, but it will look just as cool as its steel-hued cousins — one of which we named among the best aluminum carry-ons of 2018. Think of this as the icing on top of an already-great cake.
If you’re not into this color, Away is also making a limited run of these bags in warm rose gold.
