Lightweight suitcases battle it out for the title of worlds lightest suitcase. The final two contenders in this survey are the Eastpak Tranverz M and the IT “Carry Tow”.
The Eastpak suitcase weighs in at 3.2 kg and provides a respectable 78L of packing space giving a review figure of 41 g/L.
Buyers loved this Eastpak Tranverz. 88% loved it! and an additional 4% liked it. That’s an impressive 92% positive rating.
They were particularly impressed with the quality, quietness and easy running wheels. This is top-notch build and real value for money.
It has two full sized and zipped inner compartments (one in each half when the case is open). The adjustable straps mean that you can adjust the depth of the case if it’s not full so that the contents don’t flop about all over the place.
The zips and handles are sturdy and the wheels are so smooth you hardly know you’re pulling anything. The telescopic handle mechanism is solid and there’s padded handle grips both at the top and side.
The only downside is that the bag needs to be relatively full to stand up properly. Being soft sided, it needs plenty in it for it to sit squarely on the floor.
Overall, this is a wonderful piece of luggage with an astounding 30 year guarantee.
Eastpak have a huge range of suitcase and bags to suit every buyer and every pocket.
This is a spinner with smooth and silent glide wheels.

The 119 litre size weighs in at 2.60 kg giving it a review figure of 22 g/L. Unfortunately, being so new there is no representative buyer rating.
