Some lightweight types of luggage include Briggs & Riley Transcend roller bags, Samsonite xSpace spinner bags and the Victorinox Luggage Avolve carry-on bags, states the Good Housekeeping, CBS News and Consumer Search websites. Some brands also offer duffel bags with wheels that are lightweight, but these bags typically cannot be used as a carry-on bag.
The Briggs & Riley Transcend roller bag is lightweight and received top scores for abrasion tests, durability and water resistance, says Good Housekeeping.
The Samsonite xSpace Spinner bags utilize multi-directional wheels that allow the bag to spin, notes CBS News. The bag has a lightweight and durable honeycomb frame.
The Victorinox Luggage Avolve carry-on bags are lightweight, weighing 6.8 lbs., says Consumer Search. Travelers should keep in mind that some of the 22-inch bags are too large for overhead bins.
