Credit Where Credit's Due

Like a Hollywood starlet who doesn't recognize Spanx and liposuction when talking about her youthful figure, I'd be amiss to leave out the Antler Size Zero suitcase when discussing my packing skills. There's really no way I could have done carry-on only without this baby.

My old carry-on was a nondescript Jansport model that weighed in excess of 10 pounds. Definitely not feasible when the international weight limit for hand luggage is just 17.5 pounds! So Rico and I set out to find new, super lightweight carry-on suitcases.

After much research online, we decided to go with the 22" Antler Size Zero, which weighs a mere 5.3 pounds. I'm not used to paying $199 for a tiny little bag, but I can say with confidence the price was well worth it. You can fit a surprising amount of stuff in the suitcase, and it is very cleverly designed. I got the bronze color, Rico got black.

10 out of 10 stars, in my book.

Great to know. I see future carry-on only flights in my near future...

~Meredith - It's so, so, so worth it. Can't even begin to express the joy at not having to wait at the luggage carrousel before customs.

I have been pretty inspired by this. I don't pack much, but it always seems to take up a lot of space.

I might try this the next time we go to Syria. Avoiding waiting for baggage would be great. Although, most stuff we pack isn't for us, but for our little girl.
