I was fully prepared to check my large rolling suitcase and pay for the overweight fees. Fully prepared to the point where my credit card was already out and reached toward the lady checking me in. However, she was not accepting the fact that had room in another bag. “I refuse to take your money. You can exchange things between your two bags. I believe in you!” At first I was annoyed and then I felt her motivation and started to rearrange the items between my two bags, essentially negating the folding jobs my dear mother had done the night before. It turns out that the check-in lady was right and I got everything between my two bags within free-luggage limits. After a quick prayer to Beyoncé asking for the integrity of my Herschel bag’s zipper to remain strong, I was onwards towards security, which was as normal an experience as one could expect.
When you're bustling through airports, train stations or anywhere else with your luggage, it helps to have a hand free to juggle tickets and lattes. If you're traveling with a large suitcase, a rolling carry-on and additional bags, it's also a tall order. One solution is to hook the various pieces of luggage together. To do this, you can use a long luggage strap or a specialized hooked strap. These solutions work quite well if you have a large rolling suitcase to serve as the anchor for the rest of your bags.
Extra-large rolling suitcase
I purchased a few large rolling kids suitcases, with personalization on them. These items shipped immediately, and I received them before date expected. The personalization was accurate and much better in person. The suitcases are of a very nice quality, "kid proof" to last for years! If considering these but afraid of quality, you have don't have to worry they are amazing! Kids are of different ages and love them!!
Pack your large rolling suitcase -- or whatever piece of luggage is largest -- with the majority of the weight on the bottom. This will keep your strapped-together luggage combination from becoming too top-heavy.
