Tips on Finding a Lightweight Carry-on Roller:
- Go to Macy's, Marshall's, Luggage store...etc and actually lift the bags to see how heavy they are without anything inside of them.
- Use Ebags.com to find out the weight of the carry-on. Unfortunately, you can't filter through the options by weight.
- Usually, the "cheap" luggage brands (i.e. American Tourist) weigh the most out of the "lightweight" category.
- In my opinion, any roller bag less than 7 lbs is a good lightweight option.

My cousin used a roller from the Heys USA brand when we traveled to Italy in September. I never heard of the brand before. Her boyfriend's mother weighed and confirmed that this brand had the lightest weight option in the mid-price range. My cousin definitely looked like she was effortlessly rolling her luggage as she rolled her spinner through the tight streets of Venice. I was jealous.
