Make Life Easier: Lightweight Luggage
If you have
more time for travel these days, you might want to consider upgrading some
of your gear to suit your physical needs. When was the last time you bought
new luggage? If it has been a while and there is room in your budget, think
about getting some light-weight suitcases. They are easier to hoist into the
car or off the luggage belt at the airport. You can avoid backaches, and you
might not have to ask someone else to get your bags for you.
Roll-Aboard is small enough to carry on a plane and it weighs only 7 pounds.
It is expandable too—you can pull on a zipper and increase your storage depth
by 2 inches (making it no longer small enough to carry on).
wheels make rolling nice and smooth, and the telescope handle is extra long,
making it easier for you to roll the bag.
Roll-Aboard costs about $130. Read more here: http://travelstore.ricksteves.com/catalog/index.cfm?fuseaction=product&theParentId=8&id=42
