If you have traveled on a commercial airplane before, you will be aware of the weight limits on the baggage that most flights have. Purchasing additional weight at the check-in counter is usually quite expensive, so it is better than you manage the weight before you board the flight. Bathroom scales may be able to measure the weight; however, it may not be easy to place the luggage on the scale and take the reading, especially if you want to measure a large suitcase. For this reason, you could choose to go for a luggage scale, as these have a primary purpose of measuring the weight of the luggage. These are usually small so you can take it with you in your bag to measure the weight of the luggage on your return journey as well. Here are some of the best luggage scales out there.
