The latest digital luggage scales are small and handy, so they can even be taken along for the ride. In this way you can find out whether you any have place left for souvenirs during travel. The reason for this is that if your luggage has overweight, airlines are tough and then ask for additional cash. So it is way better to pre-test the weight.
