Check out the "Flex" styles, offering a zipper flex feature that makes an additional 2.25 inches of space. Those who like to stash travel documents and gadgets might prefer the pocketed version, equipped with a water-resistant nylon front pocket.

Exterior features on Away luggage include 360-degree spinner wheels, a TSA-approved combination lock and telescopic handle. Inside the suitcase you will find a removable liner (which comes in handy in case of spills, said one CBS Essentials staff member), an interior compression system, a removable laundry bag and a few zipper compartments.
