What is a Weight Indicator on Luggage and Why is it Important?

There are a lot of strategies we’ve seen people use to see how much their bag weighs. Lifting something heavy then lifting their bag and comparing difficulty. Stepping on a scale with their bag. Completely winging it and just hoping for the best. If one of these is your go-to strategy, we hear you, we see you, and you’re totally valid. But… can we interest you in a better option?

Want to do it the easy way? Meet our always-handy weight limit indicator. 

A weight limit indicator is a device that allows users to see if their item is above a certain weight threshold. 

Pretty straightforward, right? Well, not all weight limit indicators are made the same. We know the typical maximum weight for a bag is 50 LB. We’re taking the guesswork out of packing, so the handle on our Rollers turns red if you lift the bag and it’s overweight. No, you’re kidding… it can’t be that simple. Oh, but it is! This feature is just one of many reasons our Rollers get thousands of 5-star reviews.

No more guesswork, and no more stress as you head to the gate. Feel confident in your packing every time, and forget the fear of having to leave something behind – you know you’ve got this in the bag.

Where is the weight limit indicator?

On our bags, the weight limit indicator is located right on the handle. We’ve placed it here for the ultimate ease of use. Just lift, and look!

Why is a weight limit indicator important?

For one, your gate agent will love that you’ve made their job easy for them. It’s a benefit to you, too, of course.

A weight limit indicator provides you the confidence that your bag will be good to go once you get to the gate, and that assurance can be such a game changer for kicking your trip off on a good note!

How do you use a weight limit indicator?

Pack your bag, then lift it up by the handle, If the indicator turns red, your bag is too heavy. That’s all there is to it! We like to remember this saying: if it’s clear, you’re in the clear!
