Nah. I have a fairly weirdly colored Tumi and nobody blinks an eye at it when I bring it to the client's office. As long as you don't have something that's garish or held together with duct tape, nobody cares, aside from maybe some judgement on brand selection.

@C1 I swear some people are so self conscious about their firm. You mad cuz you didn’t get in?

I'm MBB too. Where do y'all think I should get my back from?? I heard that MBB only gets certain types of bags in certain colors so I'm a little concerned about going for a brick or a nice green color.

As long as you’re not dragging an R2D2 case they the airport (and I have seen a grown-ass man do that) I think you’re fine

Thank you for at least thinking about it... but you good. At least you aren’t rolling up to the client site with a backpack

I have the Away in Brick. It looks nice. It's a darker color so is still understated. Also, no one gives a fuck. Get it.

Away can’t go on small regional jets where all rollerboards go under the plane because of the battery. Keep that in mind

like

EY1, new Away models easily eject the batteries so they are now compliant with all airlines as long as you take the battery out

Honestly you will be traveling with folks on your team for the most part. I don’t think it matters too kuch

A1... not gonna lie. A smart suitcase that follows you and looks like R2D2 would actually be badass. Op, I’m also thinking of getting an Away. Are you going with the regular carry on size, or the larger carry on size? I take a lot CRJ’s, not sure if the larger carry-on will fit

It’s. A. Bag. Too casual? Gtfo

Looool. Mbb....

@ba1 - May be you should go for the old plain black then 😬

I have the dark green Away and loooove it ! 🙌🙌

I've been solitary all my life - no friends and no girlfriends and have been perfectly with the kind of boring lifestyle I live. For additional context, Indian born but raised since I was 3 in the US by traditional parents. I've recently been getting, for lack of a better term in English, "marriage interview" requests from the parents of others also raised in the US. Throwing Mr. Solitary into the fastest version of speed dating possible seems like a recipe for disaster. Any advice?
