Review luggage deals: Light weight luggage for any destination.

Approximately 1.5 million people fly daily in the U.S. alone. (www.census.gov) Believe it or not, some people actually obtain the elite 10 million-mile frequent flyer’s club like Ryan Bingham (played by George Clooney) in “Up in the Air”.  If you are a seasoned or a first time flier, you will need to bring your things.  Hopefully, you will be using your new light weight luggage to ease your heavy load for your entire trip.

As an average male traveler, a single suitcase and maybe a luggage carryon accommodates my needs for at least 2 weeks.  However, the average female traveler may require multiple suitcases for travel for a long weekend or a week.

In this blog, I list some pros and cons of light weight luggage to help you choose the right luggage deal for travel to your destination.
