Ryanair and Easyjet suitable! I just picked up one of these for myself, it's really light, and sizeable. Just thought it was a good price for a branded, good quality cabin bag (my last one survived one trip, but in its defence, it cost me £5). Hope it's of use to someone. Collecting from store is free, or you can pay for delivery, which is £3.49.

This!

My CabinMax is about 700g! (same capacity as this)

I use the backpack style one. But if you really must have wheels and handle then this: amazon.co.uk/Cab…6W/

... is the same capacity. Has wheels and a handle. And is £5 cheaper.

It's £5 cheaper because it's pretty bad quality. It's false economy to spend £5 less on a bag, for it to break after a trip or two. Out of 61 reviews, 10 are 1* out of 5*.

Some people just don't get it. If its cheaper then its the bargain of the century.

I spent about 200 quid 9 years ago on a Samsonite suitcase. I average about 8 flights per year. The case is still in good shape and will last many more years. Ok, the outside is a bit beaten, but only cosmetically. I wonder how many £5 cases I would have had to buy in the last nine years?

And out of 61 reviews, the majority (37) are four and five star.

I've been using the backback style one (I prefer to have both hands free and it's lighter) for years and it's held up just fine. Quality of mine is just fine.

Wouldn't that depend on what you intend to put in it? if something that needs more protection then I'd rather have it in a rigid / heavier case than a simple lightweight canvas case? Whereas if you were just putting clothes in, it wouldn't matter.

Pricewise, for this specific case, this is a very good price (Tesco have it for £45).

And if you read those reviews, the majority haven't even used it. The one and two star reviews are from people who have taken it abroad, and it has broken. I just don't think a thin material bag is comparable to a sturdy, protective suitcase. If you are taking just clothes with that cabin bag you would be fine, but stick 10kg in there, and judging from the reviews, it won't last long.

I don't understand people saying 2.3kg is too heavy; if you buy a lightweight bag, it probably won't be as strong, due to the lightweight materials used.

For a cabin bag, 2.3kg is pretty heavy.

10kg/15kg limits on most budget airlines. 2.3kg is a sizeable chunk of that.

Also, given that these are cabin bags, why does it need to be rigid? The point is, it's cabin luggage, so luggage handlers aren't throwing it about on it's way to the hold. I take laptops/tablets/cameras in mine. Nothing has even got damaged (including the case) as it's with me the whole time.

I seldom use hold luggage now. No need. It's amazing how much the CabinMax holds.

but stick 10kg in there, and judging from the reviews, it won't last long.



My experience says different. I regularly stuff my one full and it's still as good as new. If anything, mine probably has more strain on it as well as it's the backpack style one.

Up to you. But mine has been great.

I've a bigger version of the revelation case and it's not amazing quality, but does the job.

I'm referring to the one in your link when talking about breaking, having read the reviews. Rucksack version seems to hold up better.

Quite possible I guess.

But looking at the 5 star reviews, I also didn't see many that suggested they'd never actually used it?

Maybe 2 were basing the review on what they'd received. The rest all seemed to intimate they'd used it.

Anyhoo. You pays your money, you takes your choice.

I used to fill the luggage area at Makro when I worked there as a student. They sold Antler and Revelation stuff. Can't say the quality of either ever really impressed me to be honest. Plenty broke just from folk poking at them in the shop!

This is perfect timing!! I ordered one of these from Tesco on Tuesday for £40 and was going to collect it tonight! I'll cancel that and get this instead, thanks!

revelation is not the same as plain old antler, antler are really amazing suitcases, this is just a normal priced bog standard suitcase.

AGREED, their restriction is 50x40x20cm for the guaranteed cabin luggage.
Any suggestions for one within those dimensions?

Budget?

I guess up to £50 to get something decent...

I had an Antler trolley style backpack that I bought from House of Fraser. Paid quite a bit of money for it, thinking it would last. It ended up going into the hold on a flight and burst during handling. Ended up with personal items on conveyor belt. Never used it again since and has put me right off antler products. I've ordered the cabin max stockholm. At least if this fails I'm half expecting it. Antler to me is just paying for a name. Much the same as kipling.
