Who wants to lug around a heavy suitcase – travelling to your destination is hard enough! Lightweight suitcases are perfect for those who need something easier to lift and roll around.

I was looking for a new lightweight suitcase and have scoured Amazon for the best lightweight suitcases on the market. Here’s what I found so you don’t have to do the research. If you’d prefer to do your own research, click here to go to Amazon with the filters set to under 2.4kg and customer rating over 4 stars.

What I look for in a lightweight suitcase

Weight – The suitcases on this list weigh 3kg or lighter.

Size – Suitcases come in all shapes and sizes of course, so I chosen to focus on cabin suitcases if available to try and standardise and make comparisons easier.

Here are the cabin bag sizes for the most popular headlines

Outer material – I prefer the material polypropylene for suitcases as it’s light and hardwearing (they make car bumpers out of polypropylene for example). After all, our suitcases get battered and bruised over its lifetime. I have added several non polypropylene suitcases on this list however, if they meet the weight criteria. They also must have four star rating or more on Amazon.

Retailer – Why should you buy your luggage from Amazon? They tend to stock out of season luggage, so you can buy discounted suitcases from leading brands like Samsonite and Antler. And you can get quick, free delivery (handy if you discover you need new luggage a few days before your holiday!

Number of wheels – My travelling world was changed when I got a four spinner wheeled suitcase (Horizn Studio M5 review). It makes your suitcase seem even lighter as you don’t have to exert so much effort to roll along. I definitely think it’s worth the extra money so most of the suitcases in this list are four wheeled.

Price – And remember, if you buy cheap you buy twice. That’s why I think designer luxury suitcases are worth their price. There is nothing more frustrating on a holiday than your suitcase breaking. All suitcases cost £45 or more.

The list is ordered by lowest cost to highest.

Here are the best lightweight suitcases to buy in 2022

Tripp Sky Blue Chic Cabin 4 Wheel Suitcase

This is the cheapest lightweight suitcase on the list I can recommend. I couldn’t believe you can buy a Tripp suitcase with four wheels and an integrated TSA approved lock for £50. Tripp have been making suitcases for 20 years so they know how to make suitcases that last – it has a 5 year guarantee for peace of mind. I think this beautiful sky blue stands out.

Tripp Ocean Blue Ultra Lite 4 Wheel Cabin Suitcase

If you prefer polyester suitcases and something that isn’t as bright, this Tripp suitcase is also £50.

Hanke Expandable Foldable Luggage Suitcase

This Hanke suitcase is unique and is the most compact suitcase when it comes to storing, on the list. This is perfect for people who doesn’t have space in their apartment to store a suitcase. The Hanke suitcase flattens down to the same height as a smartphone, making it easy to store anywhere. When you are using it to travel, you can adjust the height to whatever size you need – 20″, 24″, 28″. There are a couple of downsides however. It’s slightly larger than a cabin bag and doesn’t come with a telescopic handle.

Samsonite Base Boost

When you talk about the best lightweight suitcases, you have to mention Samsonite who have been making luggage for 110 years. The luggage brand is synonymise for a reason and the Base Boost is an absolute bargain at just under £120 (I didn’t think I’d find a Samsonite suitecase for less than £150 so you’re getting some change and more here too). Sure, the looks a little basic for a Samsonite suitcase, but at the price you’re getting a well made suitcase that has four wheels and a TSA lock too.
