Away Unveils Alpine-Themed Backpack, Roller Case and Sling Bag Line

Alpine essentials.


 Away—the travel brand best known for its snazzy roller cases—is launching The Chalet collection. 

The line represents a modern take on retro-style ski slope essentials, all designed with striking, vintage colors and featuring a backpack and Away’s first-ever sling bag. 

The collection is a nod to the nostalgia of mid-century alpine style and iconic mountain towns and features Away’s sturdy line-up of polycarbonate suitcases. They come in three polished finishes detailed with bold stripes—Rally, Glade, and Peak.
