I’m pretty sure many of you travelers out there have had to deal with the rising costs of overweight baggage  And some of you are unfamiliar with the way airlines charge according to how heavy your luggage is. Most airlines have a weight limit of 50 lbs., and if you exceed that weight, you WILL incur additional fees. Depending on the weight of the bag, most airlines charge an extra $100 to $200 per bag. So what I have decided to do is give you all a breakdown on the various luggage scales that we offer that CAN and WILL help you plan ahead when packing your luggage for that next trip.

 

Lewis & Clark Digital Luggage Scale

This new product by Lewis N Clark is a great scale because of its simplicity. All you have to do is lift your luggage, wait for the beep, set it down and read the weight. With the contoured grip handle and durable strap, it can weigh up to 100 pounds. It also has a large digital display for an easy readout. Unlike most electronic devices, this scale comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries so the scale can be used as soon as you open the package. You can find it at Luggagebase.com for $22.00.

It has the same functionality as the other two scales in which you connect it to your luggage, lift, wait for the beep, and read the weight. The strap is strong because this scale has a capacity of 111 pounds (44 Kg). Yes, that’s right, it can read the weight in pounds and kilograms! This scale has a hold function as well so you can read the weight of your luggage before placing back on the floor. It also comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries.

This scale is one of the lightest ones in its class, but it is known for giving the fastest readings. It will tell you the weight of a bag within 2-3 seconds! The scale uses a strong metal hook instead of a strap to weigh out your luggage with a capacity of 110 lbs or 50 kg. When it locks into your weight reading, a red light comes on to notify you that it is done weighing out the luggage. If you forget to turn off the scale, no worries. It has an auto shut-off feature which turns off the scale after 60 seconds of inactivity. This scale also comes with two CR2032 button cell batteries.

This manual scale by Travelon is very easy to use and requires no batteries as well. All you have to do is hang your bag onto the hook and the scale will give you your weight. One neat feature about this scale is that it has an extra needle that stops at the weight of your bag and stays there so you don’t have to hold your bag up longer than needed. It helps to eliminate arm fatigue from how other scales are designed to work. One other great feature that this scale has is a built-in tape measure that extends out to 39″. So with this scale you can weigh and measure out your luggage to make sure it is within the baggage requirements.

Known for making some of the most durable luggage available, Travelpro is introducing its 10th version of their Crew product line. The Travelpro Crew 10 product line has been given many improvements on their already popular Crew 9 product line. The Crew product line has been in the Travelpro family for about 20 years now. The new Crew 10 line is perfect for those travelers who are looking for durability, dependability, and ease of travel when visiting airports both foreign and domestic. You can select from various types and sizes of luggage such as Non-Rolling or Rolling Totes, Rollaboard Suiters, Rolling Garment Bags, and Spinner Suiters. I believe that the new Crew 10 series is the best Crew series that has been brought to market. Here are some of the new innovations that are introduced in the Crew 10 series:

 

Contour Grip Design with TPR Touch Points &

PowerScope Aluminum Extension Handle

 

The Crew 10 line has introduced a new patented contour grip on the spinners’ handle to reduce the tension on the shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands when pushing the luggage. It also provides superior comfort and control.The extraordinarily strong handle is designed to minimize wobbling when pushed for pulled and it has stops at 38″ and 42.5″ to make sure it rolls comfortably for people of different heights. Made of airline-grade aluminum tubes, the handle is strong enough to support a tote or case.

01_Travelpro_Crew10_C10_Detail_Photos_C10_Handle

 

Magna-Trac System with Dual Wheel Spinners

Also found on the Crew 10 spinners is a Magna-Trac system with a set of two wheels on each bottom corner. Because of this, the spinner has a total of eight wheels which improve the maneuverability of the luggage. The Magna-Trac system is a great feature because when the luggage is pushed, magnets align the wheels in the direction you want it to go. Luggage without this feature tend to drift and pull to one side or the other which cause strain on the shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand.

 

01_Travelpro_Crew10_C10_Detail_Photos_C10_Spinners_w-1

 

 

Unique Bottom Tray

A new addition The the Crew 10 Spinners is a bottom tray that helps to align and stabilize the wheels.

01_Travelpro_Crew10_C10_Detail_Photos_C10_Tray

SUPRA™ Zippers Heads

These special zippers have been reinforced to ensure they are reliable for all those trips when traveling far and wide.

     travelpro crew 10 zippers

“Intelligent” Compression Straps

The new design for the compression straps system is that they are designed to slide along the entire length of the bag. This makes it very effective because it can now secure different amounts of packed items during travel.
