Back in stock! Cabin Max Backpack Maximum Size for a Ryanair Carry On Bag £24.95 @ S-Gizmos and Fulfilled by Amazon.

Found 22nd Jun 2011Made hot 23rd Jun 2011
Been waiting for a while for this to drop down in price. Was hovering around £30 for a long while and then went out of stock. Checked today and back in stock at the lower price of £24.95 so ordered two without delay for the coming hols!

This backpack measures 55x40x20cm and weighs 680g. The size is the maximum for a Ryanair carry on bag.

Ryanair have a strict policy off one carry on bag per passenger (including bags, shopping etc). They also have a 10kg weight limit. If you have a trolley bag, then it can weigh 2-3kg on its own. They also charge £30 to check a bag into the hold for a return trip when you place the booking. If you have to put the bag in the hold when you get to the gate, then the charge is £35 for a single journey.

From Amazon: The Original and best Cabin Max flight bag- don't accept any cheap imitations, Read the Reviews!

Flight approved hand luggage designed to make the most of your maximum hand luggage allowance. High strength composite nylon bag with padded back and featuring 3 main zipped compartment, 2 zipped internal compartments, adjustable shoulder straps, carrying handles, and side adjustable straps.

This lightweight bag is ideal for making the most of your hand luggage allowance on low cost flights (remember companies like Ryanair charge for any hand luggage over 10kg and for checking bags into the hold)

Very lightweight AMAZON VERIFIED 680 grammes and with a maximum capacity of 44 litres. Designed to fit the maximum size allowed 55x40x20cm

Voted hot. The only think that puts me off is the measurements are exactly the same as the allowance - would prefer it if each side was just a couple of cm's less to be on the safe side.

Don't fret sir. These are perfect for all your budget airline needs.
Good find OP, heat added.

Aren't hard edges better than soft edges in the case that you want to pack a lot of clothes? In a soft edge bag they will stretch the sides and you might go over the size limit. In a hard egde bag it squashes the clothes, sort of like what happens when you use those vacuum bags. You'd need a lot of clothes to hit 10 KGs.

I've got 3 of these bags.... highly recommended.

Thank you.

It has compressions straps to keep it in shape. For £5 more you can get the one with wheels and a pull along handle. Good prices, thanks, OP

I've got one, and its fine for what it is - a cheap, big, lightweight bag. If you don't have to get under a weight limit, like the 10kg one for Ryanair, then a heavier bag will be better. This one doesn't look to be particularly durable - I wouldn't want to use it for hold luggage. As a big carry on bag, its fine though.

I use a large holdall bag with no fixed structure. You can fit loads in, and can squash it into the measuring cage thingy when requested

i got 4

your move

7 in our household sir.

Go ahead, punk, pack my bag.

these are good bags, but can be uncomfortable as my daughter found out last year, fab if you really dont carry it on your back to far. If you do your homework you will find some backpacks with better padding which are within the stringent size guide with far more comfortable straps for around similar money.

Links? Can't find anything similar for the price and quality. Would be good if you could actually show something superior in quality and fUnction for the price.
Otherwise, HOT!

I dont think your meant to put your kids in them! lol

Get yourself a cheap hiking backpack instead - just as versatile, will last much longer and will be much more comfortable to carry

I got one of these for xmas and I'm impressed with the quality so far.

I am about to use it on a Ryanair flight for the first time in a couple of weeks. How full should I pack it to make sure it slides through the bag checker easily? anyone had any problems getting it to fit? Also I have never seen them weigh hand luggage before, have they started doing this?

Its about £13.50 for the exact dimensions on ebay, should i spend the extra money? it may not be necessary.

Excellent deal if you fly on low-cost airlines: you'll recoup the bag's cost in one return flight on Ryanair if you can pack enough for your trip into it (reviews on Amazon suggest this is more than possible if you're going somewhere warm) - and you will have the bag for future trips, too.

Just a word of warning on the pulling ones. Apparently with the handle they are too big for Ryanair. Think i read this on one of the amazon reviews.

try argos, they ahve some good ones on the pro range, i got mine last year so not sure if they still sell exact one but the size was the same as this.

I sometimes use Aer Lingus / Aer Arann and their maximum dimensions for a cabin bag are: 48cm x 36cm x 21cm so still too big for me!

This is why I will not buy - because the measurements are exact and it's too easy to go over the allowance.
Type in cabin luggage or hand luggage and there's hundreds of alternatives.

what would be dieal is for these budget airlines to agree to a standard of what max dimensions they will accept as check in. Once the numbers are down, and it's a standard, then consumers can then find whatever bag they wish: hard sides, soft sides, backpacks, wheeled ones, etc, as long as the measurements are lesser or on the dot.

I prefer this range, - weights nothing, takes any shape, costs £1:

One of the reviewers on Amazon fixed his by cutting 5cm off the bottom of the pulling handle.

ordered then cancelled, need one for an upcomig trip but will go for something on ebay I think.

Ordered myself one. Thank you very op for a great find :-D

Getting one!

Typical....bought this a few weeks ago. Oh well, I fly on Monday so wouldn't have wanted to risk buying this late anyway.

Not the same item at all..

Ordered but not sure why as I own a small cabin bag already! Not as quality as this one though I believe.

Got one. Used it for a week in Spain in April...got plenty in...plenty of side pockets etc. Now gonna take it for a 2 week hol (Tallinn & Riga). As i'm a bloke it's ideal...the missus, well it's a good job my hands are free to carry all her bags!

Similar but different item, looks like great value, worthy of it's own thread IMO. Also, quidco offer 15% off the total order + 10% cashback! Makes this even better value, well spotted mate

Got one of these last year, fantastic just fell into ryan air check box at airport and it was full, don't miss out and to be honest I thought it was pretty comfortable to carry.
A couple of my friends had wheelie cases and got caught out the wheels didn't fit in the box they had to pay extra.

Wow have you seen the customer reviews for the company, some of the worse I have ever seen. At least with Amazon there's some recourse should there be any issues:

Also looks like the company is a newer version of an equally doomed previous venture:

We have two of these and they are superb. Especially like the padded part which helps with wearing it on your back.

have a look,,on EBAY
