  • If you’re into cult Instagram brands, then you’ll know all about Away suitcases, which have the influencer and fashion editor seal of approval, thanks to their minimal yet functional designs (which include built-in batteries) in an array of chic colours.

    But while the brand had the whole hard case thing down, it *might* have just gotten even better, since (in my opinion) it’s served up the perfect suitcase for over-packers like me.

    Many a time have I had to unpack extra outfits in a blind panic when I realised I was over my baggage allowance, or I didn’t have room for actual essentials like, say, a first aid kit.

    If you’re anything like me, then Away’s new expandable suitcase range is the solution to all your packing woes. As the name suggests, each suitcase has a built-in zip feature that increases packing capacity by up to 4.5 cm. Also handy if you’re bringing back souvenirs (or more outfits).

    The cases are also made of nylon, meaning they’re aa fair bit lighter than their hard case counterparts (the large one is a full kilo less).

    And if you’re worried about the sturdiness of it then don’t be, as they’re made with a durable, woven nylon that’s designed to hold up against the toughest wear and tear of travel. Plus they’re water-resistant and covered under the Away lifetime warranty, so if it does get damaged then you can return it.

    The new Expandables collection is available to buy online now, in four different colours and sizes.
