Traveling certainly isn’t what it used to be. With so many restrictions and extra fees, the entire flying experience is a pain. There is one scene that is all to common when I travel with my family – the infamous ‘luggage juggle’.
Imagine, you are already out of breath trying to get to the counter in time. You have everything set, tickets/passports in hand, you already checked in online and now you only need to drop off your bags. Then it happens. One bag is too heavy. We open all our suitcases right there on the airport floor for all to see in front of the service desk. Everything that you painstakingly packed the night before becomes an unorganized, jumbled mess and you try various combinations of moving items from one suitcase to another. Finally you get it ‘close enough’ and can get on the plane. You have no idea where anything is anymore but at least you got the weight right.
So why not use a luggage scale? We’ve tried that as well. Standard luggage weights are bulky and not accurate. The handle is awkward to grab, the hook attachment keeps falling off, and no one can figure out exactly where the needle on the scale is pointing. Plus, it’s really only good for one way as it is too large and takes up too much room to actually bring it with you for the trip back.
I’d like you to meet the EatSmart Precision Voyager Luggage Scale:
Its ease of use and digital display qualifies it a travel essential! I was a bit confused as to why a brand called EatSmart would offer a luggage scale but it is clear that they know what they are doing in terms of the best way to weigh things. The handle is comfortable, the attachment for the suitcase is ideal, and it is fabulous for international flights as it easily converts measurement unit.
Another great feature is the automatic-off feature, just in case you forget or it accidentally turns on while in transit. There is a battery that can be replaced so this item will probably last for years. I’m almost inclined to book a trip just to use this! I know, I’m a geek.
So what are you waiting for? The EatSmart Precision Voyager Luggage Scale is brand-spanking new on the market and is now available for purchase. Get yours now or . . .
