I have decided that my Travelpro carry on is too heavy empty. In prep for our fall trip to London/Paris, I would love to find some luggage that does not exceed 8 pounds empty. Can you share your preferences??? And.....would like to not spend more than $100 for it. Any name brands you like?
I do see Rick Steve's $129 bag at 7# -- anyone using it?
We are travelling Air France -- their guidelines say 26pounds total carry on limited to "1 baggage" and "1 accessory". Any experience as to what they mean by accessory? Would a backpack (with purse, camera, dvd, etc inside) be an accessory?
I would rather avoid checking luggage (at least on the flights to Europe).
