Help--Is there a perfect ULTRALIGHT carryon?

Jump to last reply

I try to travel with carryon only, and I prefer a wheeled bag, but need a lighter one (preferably under 5 pounds) as I'm less able to lift my bag in and out of the overhead bins, up and down stairs, etc. I've had my 22-inch bag taken away on the runway when I've flown commuter planes, so I've been glad I have a stiff fabric bag when there were squishy/breakable things inside. Do I have to go with a soft fabric bag to get the weight down? If I get a 19- or 20-inch bag, will I have enough room? Does anyone have a Heys 19" hybrid? Or a Lipault 21" collapsible bag? A wheeled duffle? Or any bag that would meet my varied requirements? One that is light but can withstand luggage handling if necessary. Thanks for any suggestions.
