Lightweight Luggage with Feather-Light Construction

Maxlite® luggage is the lightest luggage in the Travelpro® collection. Travelpro® Maxlite® 5 soft-side bags use ultra-durable lightweight fabrics, wheels, and extendable handles for the lightest luggage in our collection. Our streamlined Maxlite® hardshell luggage comes with lightweight but super durable polycarbonate cases, reducing the luggage’s overall weight and allowing you to pack heavier contents before hitting an airline’s weight restrictions.

What Is Considered a Lightweight Suitcase?

Medium-sized lightweight luggage weighs approximately seven pounds, while larger lightweight luggage weighs between 8.5 to 13 pounds.

How Many Pounds is a TravelPro® Maxlite® Suitcase?

A Travelpro® Maxlite® 5 medium-sized suitcase, such as the Travelpro Maxlite® 5 25" Medium Check-In Spinner  weighs only 6.8 pounds. Carry-on luggage is even lighter: the Maxlite® 5 21" Carry-On Spinner weighs a mere 5.4 pounds. Even the  Maxlite® hardshell luggage is incredibly lightweight: the Maxlite® Air Medium Check-In Hardside Spinner is only 8.5 pounds. 

Which is Lighter: Hard or Soft Luggage?

Softside luggage is typically lighter than hardshell bags, but this depends on the materials used to make the luggage. A Maxlite® hardside suitcase, for instance, uses ultra-lightweight materials and can be lighter than comparably sized soft-shell luggage.
