About Lightweight LuggageLightweight luggage incorporates durable, lightweight technology in cases that are up to 25% - 30% lighter than standard luggage. Choosing lightweight luggage for your next trip can not only lighten your load, but make your next trip more comfortable and convenient. Afterall, even with handles and wheels, you still need to lift your luggage in and out of the overhead bin, off the baggage claim carousel, up stairs, and in and out of your car.
Lightweight suitcases can also help you avoid airline overweight charges. Many airlines have a weight limit of 50 lbs. for checked luggage and an even lower limit for carry-on luggage, over which they charge a fee. Check with your airline for information regarding their luggage weight restrictions.
