JUST THREE LEFT ON EBAY NOW..

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention.

I mean it is a low quality bag, but by a good brand, extremely light, and large but while still staying just under most airline's size restrictions. For example, the Argos Value bag is £1 less, but also MUCH smaller (from 82 litres down to 70 litres). The "Go Explorer" which is £10 more expensive also has lower capacity being 70 litres.

There is the Argos value "extra large" for £2 more, but that also exceeds most airline's size restrictions by 9 cm.

Plus let's not even talk about the 5 year warranty...

By the way OP, no idea what your 10% with code meant... What code?

IMO this is way to big to take on most flights, unless you are flying anything other than economy, as it would weigh to much when full

Then don't fill it? ... I know, I know, too obvious...

The bag itself is extremely light. Lighter than many medium bags on the market. So it isn't like you're investing in a heavy bag only to wind up half filling it, you're buying a light bag which happens to be fairly large, but due to weight restrictions you might be unable to fill depending on what it is you're packing.

The bag's size is still under most international airline's size restrictions (for checked luggage).

There was a 10% code from a newspaper for am purchase at Argos. Might have ever expired, im not sure. I've got mine this morning and I'm throughly impressed.

The reason I bought this is as follows. Ryanair charge 25 quid each way for a 15kg bag per person. So two people is 100 quid. What we're trying this year is one 20kg bag between two people for 35 quid each way, so 70 return.. This saves 30 quid outright and it's much less hassle and stress packing and carrying one bag rather than two. We previously had two suitcases weighing 5kg each. So that left 10kg for clothing etc each. Now, we have 17kg between us. Less, I know, but its far cheaper, less hassle, and means we won't take things we never use/wear on holiday...

This suitcase was by far and away the best option at the best price and I'm glad it's getting recognition.

The tag on the suitcase suggests the dimensions are 78x47x27, weight is 3.8kg, and capacity is 82 litres (99 litres when packed to bursting)..

Great offer just what I need for my 5 days in Alicante. Just need to explain to the Jobcentre why I can't sign on when I'm on Holiday.

If you don't need to fill it then you probably don't need a bag that size.

The other problem if you are going to buy 2 is, if you are hiring a car, fitting then in the boot.

These are only my opinions that come from having a case this size and a few that are medium size, we never use the case this size for the reasons above

Most of the tripp medium cases weigh less than this and would have plenty of room for 17kg of luggage, but of course cost a few pounds more but do have a great gtee

I don't see an issue getting two of these in the boot of a rental car! It's not as if this suitcase is gigantic. Worst 'case' scenario, if you've got two of these, is to stick one on the back seats, or rent something a touch larger than a city car.

For me, a five year warranty, for a large, known brand of suitcase is a steal at under 20 quid. Widespread availability and free padlock make it a superb deal imho.

Nah, tend to use the pessant wagons (bus) when on holiday to save on Wonger.

I bought 2 antler cases earlier this year. Went for the 4 wheels instead. Really good value and very light.

All eBay stock gone now.

Found Antler's Revolution range to be very poor quality even at this price.

I've had a good look around the case for any signs of shoddy manufacturing but it looks good. Zips are loose, stitching looks tight. 5 year warranty to fall back on.

Not sure if I fancy getting one. the only size restriction for checked bags its under is BA. BA is 90x75x43 = 208 (l+w+h)
However Delta and KLM only allow 157cm (l+w+h) and 158cm respectively, therefore it would be too big costing you more. I have a lovely Berghaus 60litre that fits all of these, and although its a squeeze to get everything in, I haven't yet had to pay more.

What are you talking about? It is 153cm in total. According to Argos description it's 79+46+28=153cm!
