On paper, at least, GoPenguin’s highly rated 26” checked roller bag seems like a dead ringer for Away’s Medium checked bag. Just like the iconic direct-to-consumer suitcase, it's built from durable German polycarbonate, it has a built-in TSA lock, and it rolls atop whisper-quiet Hinomoto wheels. Finally, reviewers on Amazon who own both confirm that it’s very similar in quality, though some point out that it offers slightly less compression with its interior compartments.
The biggest difference? Price! At only $98 today with promo code WDFWB6HD, it’s way cheaper than the $275 Away charges for the equivalent suitcase, and it comes with Prime shipping.
