Thank Dwyane Wade for Away’s Sleek New Aluminum Luggage

away luggage x dwyane wade collection

Let’s be honest, being an NBA All-Star and Miami Heat player doesn’t have many downsides. You make tons of money, have adoring fans, are beamed into millions of Americans’ homes during the season, and, you’re based in one of America’s coolest cities. Well, not all the time. The team does have to travel — a lot. So it’s no surprise that Dwyane Wade takes point when it comes to his luggage. Partnering up with beloved suitcase and luggage brand, Away, Wade has created, without a doubt, the best looking iteration of the hard-sided, clam-shell suitcase the company has created to date.

Wrapping each of Away’s four sizes of suitcase in a matte black aluminum brings the same sense of sharp, gentleman-meets-high-roller style Wade sports off the court, where he’s often found donning a slim cut, black suits, blazers, button-downs, killer sneaks, and oxfords. Wade’s combination of athleticism and energy along with his tropical home base of Miami inspired the cases’ interior abstract tropical lining and custom logo wheels.

Every Away suitcase offer multiple features that, in addition to the sleek design and appearance, has made Away a favorite of most of The Manual’s staff. Some of the features we love are the unbreakable polycarbonate shell (because we know baggage handlers aren’t the most gentle of airline professionals), the ejectable battery pack that has saved us more times than we can count, a TSA-approved combination lock that makes us feel a little more secure, 360-degree Hinomoto wheels for super streamlined and smooth airport maneuvering, an interior compression system (to fit those last few souvenirs in), and a hidden laundry bag to keep the foul-scented away from the fresh.
