Check your airline's luggage policy very carefully, print out the terms, and call to confirm.
I also like the standard issue US army duffel bags because they are inexpensive, you can get a lot of soft stuff in, and the bag itself does not contribute much to the overall weight.
Leaving your bag 5 lbs lighter than necessary is smart. For whatever reason, a bag that is 50 lbs at home is 55 in public.

"for whatever reason"...must be the same reason that i weigh 10 lbs. more on my doctor's scale than i do on mine at home
looks like i may end up flying this year too (if i get a step ticket), and i am already wondering how i can get all my stuff on the plane with me
