If you’re looking for something a little different to your mainstream luggage brands, then there are two contenders which we think bring some added style to the table: Away and Horizn Studios. 

From your classic cabin bags to travel accessories, these brands have a lot to offer. Here’s what you need to know…

Away vs Horizn Studios: Brands 

Away is an American lifestyle brand that’s fairly new to the scene, having been founded in 2015, they’ve really made a name for themselves with both hard and soft shell cases, as well as a whole accessories range. 

Horizn Studios offers some seriously smart luggage for those looking to stand out from the crowd, with a solid core collection as well as limited edition pieces and personalised luggage sets. 

Both suitcases brands have a luxury vibe about them, yet with a slightly lower price tag than the likes of Samsonite or Tumi, so if you’re all about trying new brands and want to make a statement at the airport, check out these suitcases. 

Away vs Horizn Studios: Design

Away offers a range of durable luggage options including hard shell and softside, which come in a multitude of colours and a smart matt finish, making them look very premium yet with a fairly reasonable price. They pride themselves on making luggage that lasts, so whichever design you choose, you’re making a good investment if you travel frequently. 

Horizn are taking things one step further and breaking the mould with truly smart luggage - we’re talking charging ports and tracking devices, which make their luggage look seriously cool.
