I roll my clothes and fold my dresses. The rest fits around the edges, weighing in at around 23 pounds. It can get heavy on my back but if you saw the roads I walk on and the stairs I climb up, wheels don’t apply. I’ve fit my bag (with a few hefty shoves and grumbles) on every airplane & train so far, including smaller/budget flights. I think Air Asia will be the first airline I will need to check it as they have a tiny weight limit at 15lbs. I’ve lost a few items, broke a few, and threw a pair of new hiking shoes out after 2 weeks in Scotland. I shipped my original jacket home because it was too heavy, along with an extra dress I didn’t need. The list is ever evolving but what I have here seems to do the trick for now.
