Portable luggage scale

We’ve all been there, in the excitement of packing for an upcoming trip you get a little carried away. Next minute you’re desperate stuffing items from your overweight suitcase into your hang luggage, just so the suddenly-strict check in staff won’t charge you a ridiculous amount of money to send your bag on its way.

The good news is, that, with a little planning and $24, those days are gone. This compact digital scale can accurately weigh up to 50kg (let’s face it if your bag’s heavier than this nothing can help you) allowing you to calmly cull any excess kilos at home. With an easy to read LCD display and a high-tension nylon strap this little lifesaver also comes with a one-year warranty. You could say it’s worth its weight in gold.

Price $24

    A bit of a gadget Contessa as scales do not last forever (we're on to our second set) and you often need them for other luggage as well.

    There are better scales than the one mentioned above. We have one (available on Ebay) with a hand grip and a hook on the other end. No nylon rope.
    Scales like the above are not a luxury, they're a necessity. How many times have they saved us from the agony of overweight bags and the repack in front of the check in counter. The good thing is that you can overload your bag by a kilo or two and almost always get away with it but it is important to know exactly what your bags weight. Having said that every so often you get a difficult person who demands that the weigh be correct to the nearest gram...but that is the exception.
    The real trick to getting the bags right is to vet what you take. Whilst this causes a bit of distress in this household one has to remember that one does not need 10 pairs of shoes, shirts or trousers on a holiday and this is the discipline which makes the whole exercise easy.
    Good luck travellers.

    Have purchased a similar item and a good idea BUT have you tried a one handed 20kg straight lift recently? Also helps if there are two of you - one to lift (see previous) and one to read.
