eatsmart-scaleOne of my travel resolutions for 2012 is mastering the art of packing light.  Over-packing has slowed me down at airports more than once, causing me to repack my bag to meet the weight requirements, or worse, to pay additional fees because my bag didn’t meet the requirements.

With ever increasing fees added for bags over a certain weight limit, it is probably a good idea for a traveling mom like me, who is constantly on the go, and packing for everything from beach holidays to ski vacations to trips to Europe to know how to pack, and the EatSmart Precision Voyager Luggage Scale can help in this area. The good people at EatSmart Products believe it’s possible for me to be converted to a light packer and sent me a scale to try out to help me reach this goal.  

This is not a cumbersome bathroom scale or one of those complicated travel scales you’ve tried in the past. The Precision Voyager Luggage Scale is lightweight and easy to use.  Just place the scale’s clip buckle and durable strap around the bag handle and use the ergonomically designed soft grip handle to quickly lift the bag off the ground and wait for the easy-to-read digital display to show the weight. The scale has an 110lbs/50kgs capacity and EatSmart’s two-handed SmartGrip was designed to make it easy for individuals, especially women, to lift heavier bags. The scale itself weighs in at 5.5 ounces, so it’s light enough to pack in your bag to ensure that those shoes souvenirs won’t tip the scales on the return trip.

The EatSmart Precision Voyager Luggage Scale is available on the EatSmart website or on Amazon.
