In our busy day-to-day lives we are often confronted with the need to carry our work, our tools and other useful objects that help us get through the day. Although, some of us can deal with only our pockets, at times, our job requirements and personal needs ask for some additional, practical and efficient way of carrying our “equipment”.
Based on what you need to have around you during the day, there are several types of carrying objects that perform the task of holding your useful and must-have objects to get you through the day. Lightweight luggage has become an indispensable asset to modern man that is constantly on the move from home to work or trips and back.
Lightweight luggage can be sorted based on the objects that need to be carried. And to sum-up, it’s the kind of luggage you can take on a plane or bus with you.
We can basically identify two main types of lightweight luggage depending on what they carry:
Specific role luggage
If you need to have a laptop around at all times a dedicated laptop shoulder bag or backpack will work perfectly because besides the compartment for the object itself you usually have extra pockets to store notepads, pens, or even your keys and wallet and even hang a jacket if it gets cold. The same goes for photographers that have dedicated backpacks for the camera and other side and extra pockets and compartments for everything else.
Non-specific role luggage
If you don’t know exactly what to expect after arriving to where you need to be, or simply want to have with you items that you know you certainly need it is to have best lightweight luggage that can hold various types of items that is also compact and easy to carry. In this category we have 3 subcategories of luggage based on the way you keep it besides you:
– By hand or shoulder – Briefcases for keeping documents unwrinkled and sorted, handbags for all the small objects to be in one place and easy to get to, duffel bags for clothes on a short trip or even laptop cases can be used the same way as a briefcase.
– Both shoulders – Useful when you want your hands free and distribute the weight. Backpacks are the usual favorite item here when you want to have with you anything from documents to clothes and even tools.
– Pull or roll – If you want to avoid any physical effort, luggage makers had the great idea of putting wheels on. The vertical Pullman is the usual favorite for carrying your belongings with ease. It can easily fit under the seat or in the overhead compartment on a plane and having wheels is best if you intend to put inside items that have considerable weight. The same goes for a Tutto Bag that you can even push around since it has four wheels instead of two.
Basically the way you choose your lightweight luggage depends on what you intend to carry and how you intend of doing it. Being practical can be done with style having so many shapes, sizes and format of bags to choose from.
