Read on for an EXTREMELY in-depth comparison

For some background, I was in the market for a new suitcase as my old Samsonite roller was falling apart. I couldn’t ignore the presence of Away on social media, so I decided to purchase their suitcase. Shortly after, I saw ads for Monos and decided to purchase it as well to compare the two as they both had 100 day return policies (caveat: I believe Monos only takes unused suitcases for return, but I didn’t return it so I can’t confirm). I will mention that the Away came in <1 week, while the Monos came in 2 weeks, and I live in Manhattan, NY.

TLDR: Let’s be real - these suitcases look extremely similar. Quality- and design-wise, Monos knocks it out of the park at every point of comparison.

I’m aware that Monos has a list of differences vs Away that they will send upon request, which might be worth asking for if you’re on the fence. I did not ask for such a list, I haven’t seen what they have to say, and I made my own having directly compared the two when they arrived:

- Handles: the Monos handle is noticeably sturdier, and the suitcase seems better balanced - the Away suitcase body shakes when I jiggle the handle, while the Monos body stays still. Night and day quality difference here.

- Shell: I immediately noticed how thin the Away was - comparing the two side by side, the Monos is much thicker and sturdier while the Away felt like a child’s toy.

- Zipper: the Monos zipper is sturdy and flush, while the Away zipper is recessed and feels flimsy; given Away’s design and…

Quality Meets Function

I started looking for a new carryon suitcase a few months ago and was not satisfied with the traditional (or legacy) product offerings from the likes of Samsonite or Delsey and couldn't afford TUMI or Rimowa. Then I came across several brands where were extremely popular on Instagram. I did my research and narrowed down to 2 brands, with Monos being one of them.

Prior to making an order, I texted Monos customer service and they were super duper helpful. I mentioned I was on the fence between them vs. AWAY and they shared with me some photos and videos of where their products differs from AWAY.

After I received my order, I was really impressed with the quality of the Monos Carryon from the matte finishing on the outer shell, down to the compression pad and lining inside the bag. I found the extra zip pockets inside good for knickknacks and other loose items. In terms of the details and finish, Monos does take the lead over AWAY. In terms of packing and capability, both brands are very similar.

I took the carryon on my first trip and the bag performed wonderfully. The wheels were gliding through all types of terrain and didn't have any issues. One of the biggest differentiator for Monos is the telescopic handles have multiple height adjustment capability. This was helpful whilst maneuvering through different terrains (the amount of force I needed to push the bag, yet still being comfortable).

Overall, I have very good things to say about the carryon bag and…

I am a believer!

After going through my 3rd Away case, I decided to give Monos a try. Even though Away kept replacing my case it just wasn’t worth it given the time involved with customer service and having things ship back and forth. I was hesitant at first as online everything seems similar. I suggest anyone considering or have heard of both brands to reach out and have them send you a detail comparison. Now seeing it in person I see I am a believer, I didn’t think suitcase construction can have such a big difference having really owned several brands from Costco then recently Away. The attention to detail and the materials used are really not comparable when you put them side by side. I’ve just got back from a 5 week tour of Italy and Greece and my Monos held up just fine.

Big fan of this brand

My wife has an Away suitcase, and the plan was to get a matching one for me. After seeing her experience with the wobbly handles and overall feel of flimsiness I decided to hold off. At around the same time, I started seeing ads on my instagram on the Monos suitcase which had the similar clean minimalistic look of the Away cases. From their information they put an emphasis on quality so I decided to give them a shot with the early bird discount. So far after 4 business trips the case has performed to my expectations. Ingenious angling of the telescopic handles really reduces any wobbles and the smoother finer textured finish makes the case seem more luxurious than my wife’s suitcase. Great to see a company that not just focuses on the look but usage of quality materials and craftsmanship.

Perfect carry-on

This suitcase is super light, but it’s also super sturdy—the handle is high quality (not flimsy) and the wheels roll smoothly. Extra points for the all-black minimalist design.
