They're beautiful, they're indestructible, and they come with a lifetime guarantee. That alone would be more than satisfactory but Away goes a step further. Their carry-ons—in both the standard and the bigger size—can also charge your smartphone for you. (Bonus: The battery can be easily removed if your airline prohibits this sort of luggage.)
