Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Self Weighing Suitcase

New York, NY, August 4, 2016 - Continuing its 168-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Self Weighing Suitcase, hard shell luggage piece with an integrated digital scale.

Available exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, this suitcase saves one from last minute overweight baggage fees by displaying its own weight in seconds when lifted by the handle. Weighing only 101/2" lbs., it is constructed of sturdy ABS that withstands all the bumps of baggage claim while keeping your belongings safe.

"We are always looking for innovative ways to improve the travel experience for our customers," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns." Our Self Weighing Suitcase helps alleviate airport anxiety by eliminating the guesswork of luggage weight and avoiding the stress of surprise fees at the ticket counter."

Also features a TSA friendly three-digit lock, 12" extending pull handle, and pound to kilogram conversation mode for international travel.
