Packing for a big holiday is always a little nerve-racking: how do you make sure that you pack enough outfits and essentials so that you feel comfortable abroad, while also ensuring that your case comes in at the right weight?

We've all known the experience of having to don almost everything you own through the airport to save space or having to take things out, while the queue behind you grumbles, when they tell you that your case weighs-in too heavy.

Luckily, we're living in the 21st century, and that particular worry can be put behind us, due to gadgets like this Self-Weighing Suitcase. Yes, they exist. 

Why we rate it:

An essential for your next holiday, this self-weighing case will ensure no unexpected charges at the airport and minimises that pre-travel angst. 

It's important to note that only the large size comes with the weighing feature, the cabin size does not have the feature (which makes sense, as those are the ones that head down that dreaded check-in conveyor belt). 

The hard case has capacity for 98 litres of belongings and weighs a light 4.3kg so you can fill it up to your hearts desire.

Complete with retractable handle, combination lock and eight wheels, it makes the process easier both before, during and after the airport. 

What's even better? The case won't break the bank, it's currently on sale for £38.99 (down from £49.99), which is very affordable for a case of that size. 

What the reviews say:

Overall the case has a 4.7 out of 5 rates with customers praising it for its protective hard case, quality for the price and, of course, the easy built-in weighing feature.
