does a laptop bag count towards hand luggage weight ?

I’m traveling on KLM and Croatia airlines, klm have a 12kg weight limit and Croatia 8kg.

My hand luggage bag weighs around 7.5kg and my laptop bag with laptop in like 2kg.

Does anyone know if the personal item you can take along side the hand luggage bag counts towards the final weight on Croatia airlines ?

Have you looked at the airline website? That’s where you usually see information about hand luggage.

Note that the carry on limits are those of the operating carrier - you'll need to stiick to the lower limit of 8kg as you wont be able to take a heavier bag on that flight even if you were allowed to do so on the KLM flight

That’s fine and I just see that you can take one piece of hand luggage with a personal item and it mentions the dimensions but no weight limit of the personal item so I’m assuming it’s not included

provided your personal item is within the regulation size, then it wont care what the weight is. after all, unless you are carrying lead, there will not be a great deal of weight in the small personal bag size.

does croatia allow a personal item as well as carry-on?

I’m assuming so it says this

Hand baggage allowance

Economy Class passengers: 1 piece

max. weight 8 kg

total sum of dimensions up to 115 cm (55x40x20)

What to pack?

Each passenger may additionally take:

1 personal item with a maximum size of 40x30x10 cm (16x12x4 in) into the passenger cabin

(e.g. 1 ladies hand bag or 1 laptop or 1 shoulder-strapped bag)

And then further below:

The way it's written, I would read that as the allowance being 8kg + whatever your personal item weighs.
