Best Lightweight Carry-On Luggage 2019 – Here It Is!

Best Lightweight Carry-On Luggage 2019

Don’t worry, your bag doesn’t need to be this small to be light ;-), but we have not compromised on the weight! When we picked which lightweight carry-on luggage to review, we had to decide what lightweight means for us.

We decided to go for lightweight carry on luggage under 5 lbs. Some of them may even be considered to be ultra light carry on bags!

Some manufacturers call rollaboard luggage light even when it weighs 7 or 8 lbs. We don’t agree with that. The weight limits used by some airlines are as low as 11 lbs., and 15 lbs. are common. If your carry-on bag weighs 8 lbs. in itself you’ve already used up half or more of what you’re allowed to take with you onboard.

Best Anti-Theft Backpack

To address this problem, some manufacturers have gone the exra mile to ensure that you can keep your valuable stuff safe. Let's take a look at what this means!

Most Durable Luggage 2019 – Top Carry-Ons And Checked Suitcases!

The Most Rugged Luggage - Why You Need It

Is there anything more annoying than trying to zip up your bag at the hotel and the zipper breaks? And it can be really stressful as well if you have a plane or train to catch, and not really the time to rush to a store and buy new luggage to put your stuff in. (And how would you ever manage to find out what is the most durable luggage when you have so little time?)

Or what about running through the airport actually CARRYING a heavy bag, because one of the wheels just broke and made it impossible to either pull or push?

Most durable luggage?

Best Packing Cells And Packing Cubes 2019 – Get Organized!

Best Packing Cubes 2019

​This summer I went on a wonderful trip with my 15-year old daughter. We were away for two weeks. The first week we stayed in the same place, a small property in California where we took care of two horses and three dogs. We enjoyed every minute! But wait a minute, what does this wonderful experience have to do with any kind of best packing cubes? 

During the last week we stayed in three different places, and that’s when it became apparent that my suitcase organization was not, shall we say, optimized? I grew so tired of searching for clean underwear (and not getting hold of the dirty instead), socks, T-shirts and toiletries not to mention how crumpled up everything got.

The truth of it all is that I only had myself to blame. I did know about packing organizers of course, but somehow didn’t think it was something that I would actually need. I mean, how hard can it be to keep your suitcase tidy and your belongings organized? Well, as it turned out, very hard! Even the best luggage has its limits when it comes keeping tiny socks and charger cables in place.

Once home and summer gone I decided that it was time for Travel Gear Depot to take a step out of the carry-ons and suitcases. So without further ado, let us present a buying guide and our reviews of the Best Packing Cubes for 2019!
