Lightweight luggage is made with plastic or fiber to make it weigh less and to reduce traveller fatigue. It is also easy to transport across different terrain and walk around with, as well as being easily stored in an aircraft. One benefit is reduced back strain when carrying.
Lightweight luggage is great for both long and short trips, fits overhead baggage compartments easily and may not require additional fees like wheeled bags do, depending on size. Bags are also easier to handle for those who are travelling with a laptop or a handbag, and are available in many colors and sizes.
