Light, compact, and accurate. I find that it matches the airport scales perfectly. For International travel, switching from English to Metric (lbs to Kgs) is trivial and ensures that your luggage meets the local airline weight restrictions. Don't know how I surrived without it!

The Easy-Grip Luggage Scale is perfect for traveling; compact enough to slip into your purse for last minute checks on weight and accurate. We've been caught so many times at airports rearranging luggage items from one bag to another, but this trip we had the comfort of knowing no last minute issues. I recommend it highly.

Just used the Easy-Grip Luggage Scale before a trip. I found it comfortable, easy to use, and very helpful in knowing how much I could take with me! No issues noted wtih it's function or use.

My husband knows me so well. He bought it for me. I was quite embarrassed when I had to take some clothes out of my luggage at registation. It's used to be a chore to figure out what to pack. I'd usually end up taking things out right before leaving the house. This has been a great tool for me. I've also learned how to pack more efficiently. Do I really need 5 pairs of shoes for a week long trip??? I usually only wear two! LOL!

My husband and I travel often and are always concerned about our baggage weight. I use this scale before heading to the airport and since we are always bringing home goodies from our ports of call, we take the scale with us to make sure we are within the weight limit for our return flight. The scale is extremely easy to use, has a comfortable grip and is very accurate. I have tried others; this is THE one.

At the time I purchased this scale I thought it was going to be one of those items that provided extra weight. Not only did I use it before each flight I also used it to weigh a package I sent home while abroad. Only caveat, it is rather sensitive and will give different results of the same object. Trick is to keep object level and still at each weighing.

It was nice to not try and balance my luggage on my weighing scale, then struggling to see the weight. We only used it once so I dont know about durability but it seems sturdy. The digital screen is simple to ready & the handle is easy grip like it says. However, if you purchase the scale make sure to slip it in your checked bag after you weight them! My hubby left it on the table at home...& lets face it, after you shop & repack is when the scale would've been more useful.(my $50 over weight ba

This product is amazing. It was very accurate and is easy to travel with so you can weigh your bag on the way back from your trip. I travelled with 4 family members and we all used this product before leaving for the airport. I was surprised that it was so accurate and very easy to use. I recommend this product to anyone who likes to travel.

This luggage scale saved us a lot of money on overweight bags. It was easy to use and worked perfectly.
(Posted on 6/3/10)
The scale was easy to use and the reading of my bag was the same as the A.A. counter scale. With the airlines keeping an eye on weight and fees this really saved me. Highly recommend one to all who fly.

Recently I used it in Japan when the suitcase could not be heavier than 75#. I also used it when I went to China and Alaska. I was able to help a friend redistribute her suitcases ao she didn't have to pay $85 extra for an overweight bag. It is very accurate as I check the weight and then look when I check my bag in. Fabulous item

This item works Great. Very satisfied with outcome and helps you from getting overcharged when you are at home packing rather than not knowing when you get to the airport.
(Posted on 5/8/10)
Accurate, easy to use. Had to remove a few things from the suitcase, but better at home than the airport! Packed easily so we could weigh in on the return flight.
(Posted on 4/24/10)
I love this product. I have already used it to weigh my empty luggage to see if I need to get something more lightweight. It is so easy to use and the readout is clear and large for easy reading. It is compact and will be easy to pack.

Great tool to have -- it could save you money in overweight baggage charges!

I have an earlier edition by the same company. Several times I have noted final weights of things and compared with the airline's scale, and have been very close. I've taken mine along on trips with 4-6 persons, and while everyone was madly scrambling to "make weight" before our flight, there were no excess baggage charges. I wish it would stay on pounds though - have to switch from kilos every time.
(Posted on 11/18/09)
This scale is an incredibly useful tool. After several costly trips back and forth over the pond, my mom bought me this scale. It is easy to use and accurate, as far as I can tell. The only trouble is that I wish it were just a little smaller, so I could pack it with me!
(Posted on 11/8/09)
I always fretted about the weight of my bag, never being able to guess anywhere close to what each weighed. I'd hold my bag in one hand and a bucket of (clean!) cat litter in the other, using my body as a human scale. But even that didn't work fully. Now I'll know what my bag weighs and how to more-equally distribute the weight if necessary. I wish I'd known about this long ago! It was so helpful on my recent trip to NYC.

I have now used this scale for two trips to Europe, and both times, the scale tells me I am under the limit and when I weigh in at the airport, I am actually over the limit. So I have still had to unpack items. If, like me, you max out the weight limit, you had better leave 2-3 pounds of wiggle room to account for the actual weigh in at the airport! It's great for a ballpark figure, but don"t count on it to give you the absolutely correct weight of a large suitcase.

My husband had to ship this to me while I was in Kaua'i as I was a little over zealous in my shopping excursions. It saved 2 others girls in my group overage charges when THEY overshopped in O'ahu (even AFTER they already shipped boxes home). Loved it so much, I was weighing people's carryons while we were waiting to board, just because I could ;-)

I have had situations where I had extra pounds of luggage on my return flight than allowed and had to open the luggage and remove items at the airport. That wasn't fun and I was stuck carrying all the extras. This scale solves that problem. It works easily and is very accurate. Sweet!
(Posted on 10/1/09)
I thought I could find this locally before my trip and didnt. Ordered it online and had my husband ship it out to me while I was in Hawai'i. Good thing too. I had 3 of my friends over 50lbs and luckily found out before getting to the airport, so they repacked and all the luggage made it through with no issues. A MUST MUST have for all travelers!!

Works great.Makes it easy to stay under weight limits.Easy to pack.

Great little device that was given to me by a friend as I am always travelling and panicking if I am overweight.No more buying of cheap bathroom scales to leave behind.Fits conveniently in hand luggage and luggage is weighed almost accurately.Have found that it comes in one and a half pounds more than most airline scales..So impressed bought 5 to give as presents to my family and friends.
(Posted on 8/26/09)
Ever been at the airport and had to take things out of your luggage and move it to your carry-on? I have! It's embarrasing and just a huge hassle!! This scale is awesome!! It's easy to pack and easy to use! And it takes all the guess work out of that dreaded return flight from vacation where you take back way more than you went with!! I used it on vacation and bought 2 more for gifts after i got back!
(Posted on 8/3/09)
This scale is compact, sturdy but most of all very accurate. I recently took it with me to Europe because I know how technical they are with luggage weight. With this scale I was able to distribute my belongings and souvenirs resulting in a hassle free return home. Unit is small so it does require some human strengthen to pick up a bag of 50 lbs / 23kgs but the weight locks in quickly. I recommend it.
(Posted on 7/19/09)
Easy to use and never again be surprised at the checkin counter by overweight luggage.
(Posted on 7/16/09)
I bought this scale several years ago. I fly all over the world, and even though I have a triple beam scale at home for weighing my luggage, returning home was always the problem. With this scale, there is no problem. And you don't need 2 people to use it - one to lift the luggage, and one to read the scale. It locks in the weight, and lets you put the luggage down to read it. It is easy to use, easy to pack, and easy to save on over-weight charges! You can't go wrong with this scale!
(Posted on 7/11/09)
With the stringent airline luggage weight guidelines, we found this scale to be very helpful. All seven of us traveling together shared this handy tool and were able to meet the airlines's requirements. It was easy to use and packed easily. Great tool!

The Easy Grip Luggage Scale is a must today! You can't leave home and head to the airport without it. We always weigh all our luggage at home before we arrive at the airport to avoid paying those extra fees for over weight luggage. It is so convenient and dead on accurate. We amaze the representatives at the airport when they weigh our luggage and it weighs 49.5 lbs. when the limit is 50 lbs. We carry it in our luggage so we can use it again at the hotel when we're packing to return home. THANKS
(Posted on 7/2/09)
Easy to use and helpful when packing to insure your bags aren't overweight. Strong belt attaches to luggage while handle gives you a good grasp to lift the luggage. Haven't checked in yet at the airport so I can't verify it's accuracy but I feel confident it's fine.
(Posted on 7/1/09)
Great design and weight for travel. It's good to weigh dogs with also.
(Posted on 6/11/09)
The easy grip is really easy to use. It meant we didn't have to worry whether our suitcase was overweight. It picked up the suitcase with no problem. The hand grip is very easy to use.
(Posted on 6/11/09)
It's small, light, and easy to use. I have a habit of coming home with more than I left with, and now I don't have to guess at the new weight and fret if I'm going to exceed the weight limit and have to do a frantic transfer of my smallest, heaviest items in the suitcase to my carry-on.
(Posted on 6/10/09)
I hoped to take one check in bag for an extended trip. I knew my weight would be close. The Easy-Grip Luggage Scale was right on with my weight and kept me from paying over weight fees. I highly recommend.
(Posted on 6/10/09)
The Easy-Grip Luggage Scale performed as indicated. It was easy to use and very accurate. I left our home confident that I was not over the 50 lb limit. It was well worth the $25 cost.
(Posted on 6/10/09)
This is an easy way to determine whether your luggage is within the 50 lb. limit allowed by most airlines. Better than weighing yourself, then schlepping the bag onto the scale with you!
(Posted on 6/4/09)
I cruise a lot so this came in handy toward the end of cruise. Bragging about it to other guests they laughed but once it was time to pack when cruise was over they asked to borrow it. At then they wished they had one too and thought it was a good tool.
(Posted on 6/3/09)
I use it for traveling on a commercial flight as well as in my own private airplane. I have a weight limit on luggage in order to balance the airplane and this scale helps me maintain it. GREAT Idea.
(Posted on 5/24/09)
We had another luggage scale, a non digital model, and it broke on us. I could have bought the same version this time but liked the digital feature of this one and the way that the device holds the luggage. What is really great is that you can attach the device, lift the suitcase, set it down then look on the device for the weight. The other type we had required you to keep the lugage in the air while you tried to see the face of it for the weight. This works great and we love it!

The Easy-Grip Luggage Scale makes it easy to weigh my luggage. I never have last minute surprises at the airport.
(Posted on 5/10/09)
Found this easy to use and accurate. Although at first I missed the decimal point and thought my luggage weighed almost 150 lbs. Fortunately I discovered my error.
(Posted on 4/4/09)
Like the portability and know it will save me money in the long run -- no overweight bags. Only complaint is the fact that the lock is hard to open -- but probably needed to handle the weight of the bag. I am happy with the product
(Posted on 4/1/09)
The Easy-Grip Luggage Scale is so easy to use. No complicated set-up or instructions, just insert the battery (mine came with battery) and choose lbs or kgs. I'd especially recommend this for women. We do tend to carry a little more luggage than our men folk and it is always re-assuring to know you can weigh your trolley case at home and feel secure in the knowledge that the weight is within airport guidelines. A very nifty little invention.
(Posted on 3/12/09)
No excuse to have to pay extra charges or have to repack a suitcase at the airport when you have one of these easy to use luggage scales. Love the design of the handle making it easy to lift and weigh the suitcase. The scale makes a wonderful gift to give to family or friends.
(Posted on 3/12/09)
This came in very handy on our way to Puerto Rico, saving anxiety over possible overweight suitcases and the expense! I wish the catch to open and close the strap was easier to operate- very tight, a bit of a struggle.
(Posted on 2/27/09)
Nice to use, but I dropped it once...it did not survive the proverbial three-foot drop. The display cracked and it was trash.
(Posted on 2/10/09)
This is a wonderful product. We no longer question if we've overpacked walking up to the counter with our luggage. We know to the ounce what our suitcases weigh and & the scale takes practically no space
(Posted on 1/21/09)
I would highly recommend this item. It was right on the weight when they checked at the airport. No more guessing!
(Posted on 1/16/09)
We travel quite a bit and always struggled to try to weight our bags on the bathroom scale before heading for the airport. That method was not very reliable when we were clsoe to our limit so this is the greatest. We no longer worry about having to redistribute our load at the airport. It is very easy to use and very accurate.
(Posted on 1/15/09)
I love to travel and always bring back WAY too much stuff! This luggage scale is a MUST HAVE! Now I can know what to expect when i get my bag to the airport!!
(Posted on 1/9/09)
I PURCHASED THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY SON WHO TRAVELS ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE SCALE WAS RIGHT ON WHEN THE AIRLINES WEIGHED IT. THE ONLY DRAWBACK THAT I SAW WAS MY DAUGHTER IN LAW IS VERY SMALL AND IT WAS HARD FOR HER TO WEIGH THE LUGGAGE. MY SON, THOUGH, HAD NO PROBLEM.
(Posted on 1/9/09)
We used it to weigh a half of a beef tenderloin to help determine the cooking time! Worked GREAT!
(Posted on 12/26/08)
I originally ordered this for my father in law who travels frequently and tends to over pack. I realized that it would be something my husband who also travels frequently would love too. They got them as Xmas gifts and love them. It's one of those things you'd love to have but never get around to buying for yourself.
(Posted on 12/25/08)
This is a really nifty gadget which everyone, who travels a lot, should acquire. It will save a lot of grief at the airport!
(Posted on 12/18/08)
This luggage scale is wonderful. It is so easy to use and worth every penny. I highly recommend this for anyone who travels by air especially with all the extra fee's the airlines are charging now. I take this scale with my on trips so I know that I'm not over the limits coming or going.
