The other benefit to this case is that the frame containing the retractable handle is at the side of the suitcase - meaning that the packing surface inside is flat (i.e. there isn't the 2 bars from the handle going down the middle) - this helps prevent clothes getting creased.
I have been after a 19" Sub-0-G cabin suitcase for a long time, but not willing to pay £45!
I purchased 2 from Matalan last weekend (not available on their website). They are also sold in TJ Hughes for £30 too and were available online at TJ Hughes although the cabin size seems to be out of stock. However, as they have only just started to stock this again, I would imagine that they will become in-stock again online at some point.
The cabin size suitcase is currently on sale for £39 (reduced from £45) at Bags Etc:http://www.bagsetc.co.uk/index.asp?pid=4127867&pg=1&level1=SUITCASES&level2=SUB+0+G&level3=
Matalan and TJ Hughes ALSO sell the larger luggage:
23" £35.95 (RRP £45) - Size: 58cm x 39cm x 20.5cm
26" £39.95 (RRP £59.50) - Size: 67cm x 45cm x 23.5cm
30" £45.95 (RRP £59.50) - Size: 77cm x 50cm x 26.5cm
However, online reviews seem to question the quality of the material holding up to conveyor belts and baggage handlers! Obviously, for cabin size - this isn't an issue...
