Airline travel can be very stressful. The last thing you need to worry about is if your bag will meet the weight requirement. To avoid unnecessary fees, it is best to weigh your bags prior to getting to the airport. There is nothing worse than having to rearrange your luggage at the airport. The easiest way to contend with this issue is to invest in a good luggage scale. The best products are hand held digital grips with straps you wrap around the handle of your bag. When you turn them on, they list the bag weight on the grip. Good luggage scales are lightweight, portable, and easily stashed in your carry-on. With so many types of scales to choose from, it is hard to know where to start. According to Travel Gear Zone, four of the top digital luggage scales are currently available on Amazon. When purchasing a scale, make sure you pick one that is easy to read and produces weights in both pounds and kilograms to comply with travel regulations outside of the US. In no particular order, here they are:

4. Camry 110 Lbs Luggage Scale with Temperature Sensor – Like the others, the Camry is a hand-held device with an ergonomic design for ease in lifting.
