I am one who is always playing around with the weight of my luggage when traveling because I don't want to pay overage fees. It was always a problem using a bathroom scale because it was hard to properly center the bag and view the weight of the bag. Therefore I was pleased that David Hoffmann sent me an email requesting that I review a bunch of his travel products. The one I honed in on was this one for the reasons stated above.
I really liked it as you attach the strap to the bag handle and lift the bag by the device and hold it suspended for a few seconds until it beeps and the final weight is displayed. For me it fits the bill exactly for what I needed. I would have rated this with a full five stars except for the following reasons and I hope David will take note of them:
1. The instructions were not totally clear on how to use the device. It says to depress the "button" but the "button" was not clearly marked on the instructions and was difficult to find on the device (it is a very thin one just under the digital display and was difficult for me to find without someone else looking for it and pointing it out. 2. The instructions do not show how to properly lift and suspend the device. I am fairly strong but I needed two hands to lift and suspend the bag until the device beeped. My wife would definately have a difficult time doing this with a fifty pound bag. After all we only use roll bags and there is virtually no time when we have to lift and suspend the bag. Again maybe there should have been a picture as to the proper technique for holding the bag suspended that doesn't overstress your wrists and back.
