We love nearly everything about travel—except those ridiculous baggage fees. As if they're not bad enough, if you go overweight you face a stiff penalty for the excess baggage bloat or even worse, the humiliation of repacking at the ticket counter to get your suitcase in a lower weight class. Well, this handy scale ensures that you don't leave home with a super-stuffed Samsonite. There are many of these on the market and some are way overpriced, but this one's great and a lot cheaper than a first-class ticket. The comfortable grip makes it easy to lift your bag to compute the poundage to eliminate at least one point of stress at the airport. - Steven Lindsey
