With the increase in restrictions on bag weights, charges for luggage and numerous travelers seeking to avoid the hassle of checking bag, the demand for lightweight, durable and reliable baggage has exploded. Companies are competing by employing the latest materials and technology to create bags that will meet the rigorous demands of today’s traveler and airline restrictions.
So what is lightweight luggage? Lightweight luggage must not exceed 10 pounds, empty for a 22” carry-on bag. Many bags will weigh even less than that. It is also important to pay attention to the weight of frames, wheels and handles as all those items will add weight to the suitcase. So in choosing a bag you need to weigh all the features including the weight.
Lightweight luggage can be hard case or soft-sided. The hard case light weight bags are usually made out of polycarbonate and the soft-sided made out of high durable and strong nylon. You can also find expandable and non-expandable options although the expandable options may lead you to over pack. Lightweight luggage means that you have the weight for the things you need or pick up along the way rather than the bag itself. If you are among those who may tend to bring more than enough, than a lightweight bag is essential!
Since it looks like weight restrictions and baggage fees are here to stay, a good sturdy, lightweight bag will be a travel necessity whether you are an occasional vacation traveler or a frequent flyer business traveler. Don’t let your bags weigh down your travel experience!
