Who knew that a carry on could actually be LIGHT? I am the worst person when it comes to carry ons! I always end up with a bag that is either uncomfortable to carry, has wheels that don't turn smoothly, or has a handle in an inconvenient location. If you travel often, you know that a perfectly designed carry on is a must have! You need one that will be light, easy to roll, easy to pack, and easy to lift! After many failed bags, I take shopping for a carry-on bag very seriously and I believe any traveler should! Here are a few important things that I look for in a good carry on bag:
- Does it have more than one handle to carry if needed?
- Does it have 4 wheels that spin around 360? Do they roll smoothly?
- Does it have a retractable handle for rolling?
- Is it spacious?
- Is it designed nicely?
- Is it the right size for an overhead compartment?
- Is it heavy?
Okay, I know that is A LOT to ask for in a bag, but I think that any good company should consider all of the above when designing a piece of luggage that we will be toting around everywhere. After putting my list together of the qualities I am looking for in a good piece of luggage, I went on an internet search to find the perfect carry on for me. After finding many pieces of luggage lacking one or more of the above qualities, I came across Hammacher's “The World's Lightest Carry On”. The name was definitely intriguing! “A light carry on? HA” I thought. I began my research on the product. As you can see below, it had everything that I was looking for in a carry on!
- A top handle for carry vertically and a side handle to carry horizontally (both are foam for maximum comfort)
- 4 spinning wheels! Woohoo!
- 19″ telescoping and locking handle with a padded grip! (Oh how I have dreamed of a padded grip)
- Spacious interior with adjustable buckles to hold your items in place.18 inch and a 13 inch pocket in the front that can easily hold laptops, magazines, tablets, and more.
- Plus the design is a beautiful grey with a bright interior orange polyester. Very sleek and stylish.
- It weight 66% less than other 20inch carry ons! This makes it easy to slide it right into the overhead compartment
- It weighs only 4lbs!!
