But regular air travellers are snapping up their novel product, which could help save hundreds of euro in check-in charges.

Noel Regan and Pat Madigan were inspired after noticing hundreds of people at airline check-in queues having to transfer belongings from one bag to the next -- or even dispose of their possessions -- to meet the airline's weight criteria for baggage.

The two men from Murroe, Co Limerick, designed a self-weighing luggage bag, which is flying out of their warehouse -- with 350 sold in the first 10 days of trading.

They have created two types of 'Flylight' travel bags -- one for the aeroplane's hold and one to carry on.

The two bags retail at €79.99 per set.
