Shopping for Luggage...keeping a HEALTHY BACK in mind
I was shopping for luggage this week. I wanted to find bags that were airline "carry on" size as well as stylish and reasonable in price.
How do you start shopping for luggage? First, you look to find out what sizes are allowed as carry on and what sizes would have to be checked. Most airlines consider carry on bags to be: No larger than 45 inches (length+width+height), be approximately 22"x14"x9", or 56x36x23 cm which will allow the bags to fit in an overhead bin or underneath the seat in front of you.
When looking for luggage for clothes, look for LIGHTWEIGHT pieces that have wheels. This makes it easier to move through an airport as well as lift up and into a bin. If you are traveling for pleasure or work, you want to have fun or work, not get a back injury lifting an overweight piece of luggage. Keep the suitcase light, fill it with your goods.
When looking for a carry case for your laptop and other materials why not look into a LAPTOP MESSENGER BAGS. A messenger bag is lightweight, has many compartments and can be carried across your shoulder. It will distribute the weight across your body without causing any strain on your back or one shoulder. I found stylish and reasonable messenger bags online at CSN Stores. Check out the link above. Travel safely!
