Looks good for the money and security of 3 year guarantees, fits Ryanair stringent measurements ..............

Also loads of options on colours, single units etc

1.5kg lightweight so good useable 8.5kg filling.

Some conflicting reviews but 4 out of 5 on the whole, maybe worth a punt for the budget conscious which is what Ryanair is all about

I've just bought two of these for our holiday in mid march. Flying with Ryan air so had to double check the diameters. Seem sturdy enough but if packed wrong I can see how they wouldn't stay up (most people's single complaint). If you use common sense and pack the heavier things at the bottom then it stands. The handle even hides away in a zipped pocket so it shouldn't get broke quite as easy as some of the other ones.
I may end up coming back and changing this comment after the holiday but for now, its heat from me.

1.5KG, so they same weight as the Sub0?

I bought the Aldi bags as they are soft and can be pushed into the brackets.

These bags are only "Ryanair safe" until they start charging for hand luggage placed in the overhead bins. Pretty soon the only "free" bags will have to go under the seat in front. Wizz Air already have this rule, it's only a matter of time before Ryanair follow suit...

Good job they're cheap then for when they go surplus to requirements upon rule change (_;).......................

what are ryanair limits now?

Total rubbish.

It's got to the point where it's so stupid and ridiculous with these budget carriers that I just choose to enjoy my trip, pay the extra to check in my bag, and travel nice and light on board like a normal human being.

Not worth the hassle to save a few quid.

Very hard to believe these are any where near as light as the Sub0 ones but excellent price.

Why are you wasting your talents on a consumer forum when you're clearly an aviation expert...

Airlines in America have had that rule for many years now as well - have you been claiming that Ryanair will follow their lead soon for years, or is it just a complete guess?

Just ordered. Hot.
You lot look into things way too much, just get them bought! £12 a bag FFS

Just ordered, thanks

Mine lasted 1 flight before the handle at the top broke, a good size and looks reasonable quality but unless I was just unlucky' looks can be deceiving.

I will buy one.

so im guessing these are also fine for easyjet

The Argos listing states 1.7kg for the small Sub0 one, which I have. My point is that the it's hard to believe these are even lighter given their type of construction. I'm suggesting the seller may be telling porkies but they are still a very good deal at this price.

I'm not knocking your deal - just questioning the weight which seems improbable.

Without getting into a protracted discussion about these cases (because I haven't bought them and I'm not biased or concerned either way), it seems a little OTT to suggest the seller must be lying because they appear to be such a good deal and maybe particularly because they *appear* to be maybe a better buy (on paper) than the one you obviously purchased, are we to assume the seller is also *maybe* lying (telling porkies) about the dimensions, the shipping costs, the colours available etc, etc...at some point you have to accept the facts presented to you particularly on a site like Amazon where presumably a seller has to adhere to certain procedures, just my thoughts again unbiased either way (I bought the official Samsonite hard shell ones to *guarantee* no stress at check in - legalised Ryanair protection racket

It's normally a lot more than "a few quid" to check in your luggage - Ryanair charges between £30-£70 per person per return flight (depending on the time of year), which can sometimes be more than the cost of the flight itself. And that's if you book in advance... it's even more if you pay at the airport!

If you're happy to pay this much money to avoid carrying your case on to a plane and off again, why do you bother to fly with budget airlines in the first place? (or even come on HotUKDeals for that matter?!)

That's a bit harsh, sometimes Ryanair are the only operator on a route or the only one available short notice, if someones happy to pay extra for a hold bag and the overall price is still reasonable why not ?, surely doesn't necessarily make them a flash harry not fit for HUKD

It wasn't intended to sound harsh. I was just trying to point out that for most people who are into saving money, taking carry on luggage is a great easy way to avoid paying exorbitant charges for check in luggage charged by many of the budget airlines.

As soon as you start playing into their hands and forking over more to take a bag than the cost of your ticket, plus paying for fees and extras like speedy boarding (Easyjet) etc, then your "cheap" flight stops being quite so cheap.

Plus you can also save a few hours hanging around airports either checking luggage in or waiting at the other end to see if they have lost it.

Calm down dear! I voted hot, your deal is good, I'm simply questioning whether they really can be that light (hence 8.5kg to fill) when the Sub0 ones are made with absolutely minimal materials (and you've pointed out they are smaller too) whereas these appear to be conventional in construction. Maybe someone could weigh one and put us out of our misery? I'm not point scoring, just questioning out of interest. If I'm wrong that's great, if I'm right it wouldn't be the first time there was an 'error' in an eBay listing would it?
Edited by: "Besford" 28th Feb 2013

Decent deal but not sure if the cases are that good. Saying that if this stop you paying to check in just one bag then it is worth it!

Well inside the Ryanair hand luggage limit of 55x40x20cm. Just remember that there is also a weight limit on Ryanair flights too.

Thanks, should be useful. 5% Quidco on this now too.

We ordered 2 super lightweight cabin approved suitcases back in March 2013, which we have used a lot ( we often fly with hand luggage only). Unfortunately, the wheel on my case broke, and my husbands started to look a bit wobbly. I decided to contact them a few weeks ago when I realised they had a 3 year warranty. There was absolutely no quibble, I sent some photos and yesterday had 2 brand new cases delivered. I am delighted to have received such excellent service, a refreshing change nowadays
