Are the days of hand luggage nearly over?

Thanks to the airlines tough new stance on hand luggage traveling, without having to check luggage in, is becoming increasingly unavoidable.

When you take into account that the weight of most hand luggage (the kind on wheels) is a 1/3 to a 1/2 of your allowance it’s no wonder that so many of us keep overstepping those pesky weight restrictions.

It is incredibly challenging to pack for a trip, especially those to freezing climates, when you’ve got only a few kilogrammes to spare.

I’m a fairly frequent traveler and I don’t get it right most of the time! I was wondering if there were any frequent travelers who manage to get it right all of the time? If so please share a few of your tips.

What are your hand-luggage-only traveling secrets?
