Suitcase Review: VERY Light Luggage

Suitcase Review: Light Luggage

Travel Tips every other Thursday.

Sonia Gil reviews all the products that might come in helpful before, during and after a trip.

Sonia loves her some great travel products and today she reviews an alternative for people searching for especially light weight luggage for their travels.

IT Luggage:


Madelyn Duong says:

The lightest luggage in the world? LOL. The hubby just packs it in a box and ties it together with rope. We’ve never had any problems going through security on international flights. Granted, all of my stuff fits into a carton duffel bag and a purse. I’m a light traveler. Most of our checked luggages are gifts for his family.

For being a “product review” video, it was total shit.
You have a beautiful face though.

Yara Cruz says:

I just saw that brand at the store and was wondering if they were actually worth the hype!!!

Laura Diaz says:

my family and i went to the philippines and back from new zealand with side trip to singapore  (just me and hubby)… and i love the 4 wheeler carry on of the it luggage! like you said, weight was my main concern as they weigh the carry on as well to just 7kg =( as having 2 kids ( 2yo and 3 month old then) and trying to downsize the number of bags we carried to just a baby bag and carry on, i loved it as we can carry more for my family and still have more weight space!

I have found Lipault to be light and excellent and you can pack A LOT

Rosie Castro says:

Love u sonia!!!!!

Hello interesting travel human

Lily M says:

I highly recommend the Roxy (and Quiksilver, I suppose) luggage – I’ve had the medium size one for eight years now (gawd) and it’s held up really well, and I just got the carry-on this summer. Love it. 

vennicat says:

I recently bought a Carlton Vlite spinner carryon. It weighs 1.9kg and is within IATA size regulations. While the IT carryons look a little flimsy (I haven’t used them, so I’m not really sure), the Carlton is strong enough to survive being stuffed into overheads on domestic and international flights without nary a tear, and being dragged around on polished, carpeted and rocky mud roads. It took it all without complaint. Packing as I did for a wedding on one occasion, I was surprised at how much I could fit in, even when working my dayclothes around my bulky formal garments.

(Sorry for the rant. I just never see Carlton luggage anywhere online, so I thought I might as well start 🙂 )

Michael Johnson says:

Very good

Nacho B says:

May you do a review about fugu luggage?

newharmony85 says:

How did you buy this in the US or Canada? I couldnt find it outside of Europe.

Stephanie Rim says:

What luggage brand do you recommend as the most durable?

Sarahandhearts says:

I have the carry on and I have used it at least 6 times and there is no sign of wear apart from the wheels

Adrienne Fraser says:

I love your videos but they are way too short! 

scarlettspirit says:

Your lipstick color is sooo beautiful, do you remember its name?

Cindy Palacio says:

¿Cuál es la ventaja de una maleta de “tapa dura” a un de tela?

Bret Corey says:

You got some sun… lol I can almost tell what sunglasses you were wearing.

Jessy Faas says:

I have the carry on bag. It is nice, no damage in the fabric but the weels are now in a state that they can break off at any moment. Used it a lot as a student traveling back to my parents every week. Really light!

Adventure Around Every Corner says:

The super light luggage I use, is from DELSEY .. their carry on is a little below 2 Kg. (below 4 pounds) & they’re guaranteed for 5 years!

Kim Hayes says:

I have this luggage it’s amazing it’s been from uk to Mexico uk to turkey and uk Belgium still going strong

Ivett Gómez says:

I purchase 2 of (30″) these luggages and yes they are super light and spacious but I don’t feel like if they’re too durable. I did have to exchange one because the IT logo fell off after a 2 hr flight back home. For our recent trip to Japan they were not to convenient. We took the metro and with all those stairs, it was a headache. Definitely not durable. Thinking of returning them.

Brandon Larson says:

Sonia, you need to try Tom Bihn’s Aeronaut 45.  Made in USA, 45 liter bag with no wheels to get stuck on cobblestone streets, snow, etc.  Fits in a Canadair regional jet too.

Ármin Ábrahám says:

Samsonite lite-locked!

Kathleen says:

I use IT Luggage and it’s pretty tough

Voga Madrid says:

The wheels are not very smooth.. In my opinion.and the dont have 4 , only 2.

Lesley B. says:

Sonia, when I see the words “product review” I expect to see more than just how much they weigh. 😛 

moody says:

Hi, sometimes I use two black trash-bags to hold all my items. It’s really light.

aj reis says:

whats with the “sitting at home on my sofa” travel luggage reviews?! Show me the luggage at the airport after a flight. Otherwise I can go to a shop and see the damn thing for myself.

Bret Corey says:

By far my favorite travel expert. Or Travel afficianado.

Misty Waters says:

I have the red carry on it bag. Got it in a beautiful cherry red color at tj maxx. I love it. Super light weight, easily fits under the seat in front of you or in the over head compartments. Yes the material feels flimsy, but I have yet to have a problem with it. Also, the wheels are very quiet when rolling around. If I had any complaint, it would be tht the handle bar is quite a tight squeeze when lowered. Not easy to pull up one handed. I’ve had to use my knee to help pull it out. Otherwise, I love it.

Stacey Matthews says:

This brand is amazing! I’ve had the bag for about 3 years, it has been through 2 world trips and many holidays. and has carried 25 KGS in it. On a side note, the handle freaked me out because it doesn’t feel strong, although it hasn’t ripped yet, but it has stretched a little.

Marcin M. says:

I’ve dropped here just to say hello.
Hello (hola) 😉

Daniela Suansing says:

I have an IT luggage and its pretty durable. Tho I will say I did use one strap on it, it held up completely fine and I got to pack that extra pair of cloths. I went touring in Europe with the IT luggage(which I had to bring the IT luggage EVERYWHERE I went) and it held up with my rough handling and the baggage people. Over all I would totally recommend the IT luggage.

Noemi Savelkoul says:

Sonia I am going from brazil in december to Paris! That means that I am going from a hot summer to a cold winter! How should I dress so I can be comfortable? I will stop at Lisbon! Please help

JessieBanana says:

Did I miss something, where is the review part of the review? The only thing in the video is the weight. That is clearly listed online and on the package. I want to know details about performance, how it packs, and travels.

Bret Corey says:

Is there a tip to hide sun tan lines or prevent them?

Ma Fernanda Antonini Chaviel says:

Hola Sonia! Realmente has usado esta maleta, los comentarios en Amazon son 50/50 me da miedo!!!! Dime si ya la has usado

Renee Levner says:

We have 2 IT carry ones and we love them. My 17 yr old daughter took hers to Poland and other countries and she is hard on things.

G U says:

forget the weight! is it DURABLE?????

snorlax says:

Great video as always. Just one thing, don forget the international system of units next time 😉
