Ever So Cool Charge-a-Weigh Luggage from Heys


We love reviewing luggage and it’s been awhile, so was thrilled to get a couple of pieces in from Heys, one of our favorite luggage brands. One of their cool new features is the inclusion of an integrated digital scale for weighing your luggage on the go. How useful is that, especially if you travel a lot?

This series of luggage which is called “Charge-a-Weigh” comes in 3 stylish and fun colors: red, a tan/taupe, which we went with and black.

You can get them separately, i.e., as a 21 inch carry on versus larger checked piece or as a 3 piece set. This lightweight hybrid design combines the strength and support of a hardside luggage with the convenience and functionality of softside pockets, a feature we really love as frequent travelers.

There’s diamond embossing on a hardside surface which helps prevent surface scratches and scuff marks and it also has a fully-lined interior comes with buckled compression strap and multiple pockets. Another useful feature is a flush-mounted built-in TSA combination lock.

Even though it’s hard luggage, its zipper-released expansion system allows for an extra 20% in packing capacity, which is the best of both worlds. Their hands (top and side) are both gel cushioned for extra comfort and there’s a lightweight aluminum telescopic trolley system that has a push button locking system.


Another feature this series comes with, which is a MUST for any travelers is the 360° spinner wheels. For anyone who is still using a roller bag that you have to pull behind you with effort, it’s time to switch out for a Heys 360° luggage set — and they offer so many different styles and options, that you won’t have a problem finding one that suits your taste and needs.

These fluid wheels allow for effortless motion in different terrains or if you’re like me, running through an airport quickly rushing for a flight. The bag simply glides with ease alongside you.

The 30 inch model weighs in at 11.9 pounds and the 21 inch is 7.7 pounds to give you an idea of weight sizes for planning purposes.  For more information on their latest models and how to order for the U.S. market, visit the Heys America website and their main website is here.
