A very useful tool to have when traveling
on June 2, 2010
I recently bought this scale after hearing someone rave about how great they were to have, and with excessive fees the airlines charge for baggage these days, I am really glad that I made this purchase.
It doesn't take up much space in the luggage at all. And I found the scale to be pretty accurate compared to the airline's scale at the counter. By using this scale we were able to save ourselves the extra fee for an overweighr bag by shifting some things to a carry-on before checking the bag. And although we didn't really use it much, the measuring tape is a handy little addition that allows you to measure your bag if needed to make sure it meets regulation.
If you are a person who packs near the 50 pound limit, I highly recommend this scale.
