Lightest Luggage

There are many occasions when you need the lightest luggage possible to carry what you need easily, and while handling other items. There are many types of super and ultra light luggage available, depending on your travel needs. This guide can help you select the best type for your purposes.

Totes and satchels are some of the lightest luggage available. Totes and satchels can be easily carried on your shoulder or by hand on shopping trips and day trips. This is great luggage for men and women on the go, especially parents who also must manage diaper bags, strollers and a baby. Like a large purse, satchels and tote bags are big enough for most items you need on a daily basis without adding much weight to your load.

Duffels and carry-on bags are usually a little larger than totes and satchels and are usually carried by a shoulder strap. Many duffels and carry-on bags offer wheels for easy transport in airports, malls and large parking areas. Upright duffels stand up so you can keep out of others' way in busy terminals and crowded locations. Other duffel bags lie flat and are easy to stow under a seat, hotel bed or in the trunk of a vehicle.

Boarding bags and larger carry-ons offer even more room for storage, and many are well under the airline weight and size restrictions. Boarding bags are super for air travelers but also make great bags for weekend trips, salespersons, day trips with children and keeping items in the car. You can find boarding bags and larger carry-ons in upright designs and lay flat styles on wheels and with handy shoulder and hand straps.

Tons of styles of the lightest luggage you can find are available by Nautica, High Sierra, Samsonite and many others. Some styles are quite basic, and offer either hard surfaces for protecting valuable items or soft canvas that flexes to accommodate clothing and other small items.

Solid colors blend in well, such as basic black, navy blue and red. These colors are great at hiding dust and dirt from travel. Many prints are also available, which can coordinate with a wardrobe or simply stand out to be easily spotted at the airport luggage pickup.
