The EatSmart Precision Voyager digital luggage scale is a practical solution to most airline luggage restrictions. Simply clip the EatSmart buckle to the handle of a suitcase or bag. EatSmart’s proprietary two handed SmartGrip design allows for easier lifting of even the heaviest bags. Lift the bag and the scale will beep when the weight has been determined and appear in the large backlit LCD. Push the ON/OFF button and the scale resets to zero for the next bag. The scale is compact, lightweight and durable so you can take it along for the return journey. The Precision Voyager is a practical solution from the casual vacationer to the road warrior!
The TravelWise 3 piece packing cube set is a travel essential that allows clothes to stay folded and neat when packed in their own “small drawers”. The cubes are fantastic for staying organized on short travels and long travels alike and help you avoid over packing. Constructed of lightweight, durable nylon, these multi-sized cubes allow you to compartmentalize similar items such as shirts, pants, undies and electronic accessories and streamline packing. The open mesh panel affords breathability and visibility–no more digging through luggage to find that elusive sock. Suitcase security checks are less daunting since screeners can easily view contents through the mesh insert without causing suitcase havoc.
Personal Experience: EatSmart provided me with a EatSmart Precision Voyager digital luggage scale and a TravelWise 3 piece packing cube set for the purpose of this review.
EatSmart Precision VoyagerDigital Luggage Scale: A great solution for meeting airline weight limits. The scale is composed of a handle large enough for you to grip comfortably with two hands… very helpful for heavier luggage… and a strong woven strap with a buckle. You wrap the strap around a handle on your luggage, snap the buckle in place, and lift straight upward using two hands. A back-lit digital display shows the weight of your luggage clearly. You can change the units between pounds and kilograms. The scale has a 110 pound/ 50 kilogram weight capability. It is a relatively small and compact scale that could easily travel with you. A great, simple solution to a common travel problem and very well-made.
TravelWise 3-Piece Packing Cube Set: The set is composed of three nylon bags in three different sizes. The three pieces each have a mesh front which is great for keeping the contents aired out and it makes it easy to identify what’s in a cube. each cube has its own handle. The two-way zipper opens up three sides of each cube to allow for easy packing. The two larger bags can be folded and stored within the smallest bag and they take up very little space.
Having the three sizes gives you numerous packing options. You can pack like items together for easy organization. I was able to fit four pairs of large rolled jeans into the largest cube. The medium cube held five rolled extra-large tees. If you’re a family like ours, the items of each family member can be separated into the cubes… like three mini suitcases inside a suitcase. Great for overnight and weekend trips!
This travel cube set has proven useful for more than just travel, too. As a knitter, I’ve found them great for storing yarn. I’m able to divide types of yarn inside a larger container. The smallest bag works great as a project bag, too. I can quickly toss my latest project into my bag before I leave the house. It keeps it separated from the other items in my bag and can be easily pulled out to let me work on my project wherever I am. The only caveat is that I need to keep my small items (needles, stitch markers, etc) within a small container, because of the mesh.
Overall a great little set of bags that will simplify packing. The nylon seems a bit flimsy and I do worry about how it will hold up to extended use, but s far no rips or runs. It would also be great to see a smaller gauge mesh to allow for the packing of smaller pieces.
