Baggage allowances can be a bit of a headache and a nice chunk of that weight can be blamed on your luggage alone. That's where Zero Halliburton's ZRL line comes in. They've managed to create a durable and lightweight polycarbonate hardshell that weighs just under 5 lbs in the international carry-on models. The larger sizes tip the scales at just 8 lbs for the 26" and 9.5 lbs for the 28" model. They also feature removable mesh panel dividers and ZH Global Tracking to track your luggage anywhere in the world.
