When to travel with a check-in luggage?

I am a huge advocate for traveling with carry-on only. But lately, I have found myself needing extra space for some of my travels.

So, when do I travel with a check-in luggage?

When I’m going on a ski – or snowboarding – trip.

Snowboarding pants, jacket, gloves, and boots can take up the majority space of your suitcase if you are traveling only with a carry-on. Unless of course, that’s all you want to bring.

When I’m going to the Caribbean.

I’m a certified diver; and when I travel to the Caribbean, diving is a must. However, diving equipment like snorkel, mask, and wetsuit take up a lot of space, not to mention, my fins; they don’t fit in any of my carry-on suitcases.

When I’m traveling with photography gears.

Most of the time, I travel very light when it comes to photography equipment. But there are occasions when a tripod, extra cameras, and lenses are necessary. My adventure, shooting the untamed nature of Iceland, wouldn’t have been the same without my photography equipment.

Enters AWAY suitcase: Affordability Meets Thoughtful Design.

After doing some research, I discovered The Medium AWAY suitcase.

What sold me on it:

The compression system

I can finally bid farewell to sitting on suitcases to zip it. What a wonderful time we live in. All you need to do is buckle down the compression pad and voila! Clothes magically compressed.

Attachable laundry bag

When traveling, I usually take with me a few plastic bags in order to separate the dirty laundry. But sometimes, I forget to bring them. I end up scrambling through the hotel room, looking for bags. Now, I don’t have to. AWAY luggage comes with its own laundry bag.

The weight

The AWAY suitcase is ultra lightweight – I mean, who needs the extra weight? Some may find it flimsy but, their polycarbonate shell is actually flexible by design and very, very durable.
