Traveling Days #4-EatSmart Luggage Scale Review!

I am one of those people who overpacks. Whether it's for a weekend trip, or a 2-week vacation, I always have more luggage than anyone else in our family. I cram clothing into a suitcase until it will barely zip, and then throw any extras into a duffel bag (which also ends up completely stuffed). So, when offered the opportunity to review this next product, I was excited! This is also just in time for Father's Day, as it would make the perfect gift for any Dad who travels a lot.

EatSmart sent me the Precision Voyager Luggage Scale for review. The neat thing about this is that it is actually portable, so you can toss it into your bag and use it before flying back home from your vacation as well. I was surprised at the ultra-small size of this handy little tool! It's very easy to use:

1. Hook the strap around your suitcase handle.

2. Turn the power on.

3. Lift your suitcase up by the Voyage handle, wait a few seconds, and then you have an exact weight!

No, I'm not finished packing yet :)

Get one of these and you'll never have to pay those (overpriced) overweight baggage fees ever again! If your Dad (or husband) travels a lot, I recommend you pick one of these up for Father's Day, as it would make the perfect gift! (You know he's getting tired of a new tie each year anyways :)

The Precision Voyager Luggage Scale weighs in both pounds and kilograms, is very durable and easy to use, and works for up to 110 pounds. It also features a 20-second auto turnoff, so if you forget to turn the power off, you don't need to worry about buying new batteries (it runs on a lithium battery).

"The EatSmart Precision Voyager Luggage Scale is an ultraportable, lightweight travel accessory designed for anyone from the casual vacationer to the road warrior. After easily clipping onto the handle of your suitcase or bag, EatSmart's proprietary two handed SmartGrip design allows for easier lifting of even the heaviest bags. When your scale registers the weight, the scale will beep and your luggage weight will appear on the screen instantly. Its compact, durable design allows travelers to place it in their suitcase and bring on many trips. Never worry about paying unexpected baggage fees again!"

  1. I think this is a great idea!

  2. That would certainly be handy! Be nice to know how much your luggage weighs so there won't be any surprises!
