Not really. The two questions I most often get asked about wheeled bags are:
1) Why don’t we discuss wheeled bags?
2) How light would a wheeled bag have to get for it to be considered?
The answers are simple.
1) We don’t have anything against wheeled bags. In fact, many of the packing and travel tips we give work just as well in wheeled bags as they do in non-wheeled bags. We just want to help the select crowd that likes to travel very light and without wheels. In fact, I believe this is the only interactive website devoted to non-wheeled bag travelers.
2) The heaviest convertible, non-wheeled bag weighs in at around 4 lbs. So, a wheeled bag would have to be in that area, weight wise, as well as being able to fit in most airline sizers.
And that got me wondering….are there any? To my surprise, there were. And since they weigh the same as many of the other bags we discuss, I have to be fair and mention them:
The Osprey Ozone 18 weighs 4.4 lbs/ 1.92 kg.
IT Luggage “World’s Lightest Luggage” 19″ bag weighs 3.7 lbs/1.68 kg.
And here’s the shocker–both have arrived at OBOW World Headquarters and are awaiting review.
