Packing your bags to avoid getting slammed at the airport with an overweight surcharge is always a gamble. Yeah, you could just, you know, weigh your luggage, but using a regular scale with big bags is an awkward experience at best, and who remembers to do that anyway? Solutions luggage takes the guesswork out of packing; a built-in digital scale tells you the bag's weight on a small readout by the handle. It couldn't be easier to use: just press the On button, lift the handle, and up pops the combined load of the bag and its contents — in your preference of either pounds or kilograms. The scale automatically shuts off in 15 seconds to keep from draining the battery. The bags come in two sizes, 25 or 28 inches tall, costing around $200 each. Made by Ricardo Beverly Hills, the Solutions should be apparent in stores like Macy's by the end of spring.
