I bought this because my wife is going out of the country. She is allowed only two luggage's with a maximum of 50 pounds each luggage. I can use a bathroom scale but I need to improvise it to use it. The design of the scale is so simple and very convenient to tuck away (small and very light), but the best thing about this is the accuracy. We pack her luggage to almost a hairline of 50 pounds, and both luggage's went through going and coming. This is a good product.
