Found 27th Feb 2011Made hot 27th Feb 2011
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.

hotukdeals.com/dea…759 is an expired thread on the same bag.

polishingpeanuts.com/rev…ge/ has an excellent overview of this bag.

uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Cab…PX4 has a graph showing the price for this bag on Amazon over the last year. It has been £24.95 for a while, but it hasn't been any cheaper.

onebag.com/ has a good overview on how to travel only with a carry on bag. Its a US site, so some of the advice is doesn't apply to the common UK airlines.

flylite.uk.com/bag…spx has links to the regulations for carry on bags for 616 airlines.

Amazon also sell a Cabin Max bag which has wheels as well as backpack straps. However, the overall dimensions of this bag are bigger than the 55x40x20cm allowed by Ryanair. If you want a lightweight trolley bag of this size, you can get one that weighs 1.4kg for £35 from FlyliteUK

Cheap airlines in general, and Ryanair in particular, are rather unpleasant. However, if you play their game, then you can use them to travel a long way, quickly and without spending a lot. Using carry on luggage is one part of that.

great post...saw this deal a while back but didnt bother with, gona go for it this time, cheers...hot!

Got this bag for my hubbie for a Christmas present. Its really useful for weekends and you can get loads in it. Its really comfortable as a ruck sack much more practical than a wheelie case.

Nothing special about this. This is always or at least often this price at Amazon? Bought one a couple of weeks ago... and the laptop backpack is £19.95.

As far as i can remember this bag has always been this price. Its a reasonable bag but nothing fantastic. To large for Flybe. Most people want a lightweight bag with wheels. This only has a handle on the top and is a pain to carry if you don't sling it on your back.

SportsDirect has dunlop troley bags same size for 8 quid and about 1 kilo of weight. I've been using them for over a year.

Is there a universal carry on flight bag which satisfys most of the low cost carriers dimensions?

Very light! I prefer a standard 45l rucksack for ryanair tho. Its a little heavier than this but it has 2 side pockets, 1 slim top pocket and 1 back with enough volume for easy access to gadgets, snacks, papers and meds etc. It also fits the ryanair cage very well. The standard design is also much more convenient if you like to use your backpack when travelling around your destination.

This bag will be fine for most airlines.

You really need to check the rules for the airlines that you are planning to use. There are a number of differences between the main players (for instance, Easyjet's weight limit is "anything that you can lift", in which case a trolley bag makes sense)
.
Air Berlin has a limit of 6kg for a piece of carry on luggage (8kg if you have a laptop). Airlines that don't use the normal Boeing 737 or Airbus A319 can have different limits. For instance Cityjet flights from London City have different size limits depending on the type of aircraft.

Thanks for that

Probably costs the same amount of the flight :L

No But Amazon do sell this set of 2 bags. The larger does Ryanair, Easyjet, and the smaller Flybe.

Aerolite Set of 2 Cabin Approved Hand Luggage Bags (18" & 21" Black) £45 i/c postage.

ryan air carry on bag it's actual size then that pic ? lol

I'd second the Dunlop bag from Sports Direct - £8 and perfect size for Ryanair (and probably many others too).

ahenry has some great advice

I bought this last month, £25 is the standard price

it weighs nothing, and is comfortable enough in use. some advice in the amazon review re packing it, as ryan just LOVE to scan the queue with their PDQ in hand, hoping to make a few £40 commissions (i swear they work for free and only get paid if they can screw you for some unexpected charge)

good to have hands free to whizz around the airport. i like to be a ninja, jason bourne, moving fast, doing the biz. then of course i get kicked in the nuts by the utter hell that is 2011 air travel..waiting forever for the gate to be shown in a sweaty screaming pit of craziness...then given 4 minutes to run 5 miles to the cheapest gate ryanair could haggle down with gatwick...bussed out to the farthest runway...breathe in the recyled sewage cabin air, £7 for a luke warm pizza...ah bliss

perhaps i need to stop trying to travel for £8 all-in...

This ^^. It's been in my wishlist for the last 3 months at this price. There is another one that was selling for £15 but it's OOS.

I paid £30 for this from their own website.

It's a good bag, feather light. Does the job well. I've taken it with Ryanair and Easyjet for no problems. If you don't fill it to absolute maximum i think it should be able to fit in other airlines cage too, as it's very soft and can be compressed to a tiny space.

Built quality is average, not the best zips that I found. The fabric is quite thin too, maybe that's how the weight was saved.

The back is fairly padded. Not too bad to walk around, but you don't want to do it for long time.

Good ti

I'm going to keep this page. A great collection of tips. many thanks,

dam, thought that would be ideal but we use flybe

Just bought this, good spot by OP.

Fits within BA hand luggage boundaries also, makes for a speedy exit from the airport

I have this bag, get some funny looks in the Ryan air queue as it looks massive when full, but I breeze through the checks all the time paid this price a year ago...

I'm using this very bag as we speak. Using Ryanair and Vueling, hand luggage only for a 7 night stay, with a 15" laptop, and have been required to dip it in the Ryanair luggage checker of doom. Passed with millimetres to spare. Up theirs.

If you're too feeble to carry it, buy something heavier.

Looks useful to beat Ryanair at its own game.

Is this the one you are talking about sportsdirect.com/dun…009 ?

If so will get one of these for the wife to wheel around and one from OP's post for me to lug about.

If it is, it won't hold anything like the capacity of the Cabinmax.

The 16" cases at Sports Direct site will be much much smaller inside. There is a menu where you can switch to a 20" case. It doesn't then show the dimensions or weight for this. Sometimes the length that is quoted will not include the wheels, but it will have less space, than the Cabin Max bag - from the wheels, the carrying handle, and the rounded corners.

You won't get one case which gives the maximum space, and minimum weight for all the airlines. This one looks to be pretty good for Ryanair. For Easyjet, something with wheels might be better (I prefer to also have backpack straps).

I just booked a Virgin flight and it's 6kg's of hand luggage. You know it's bad when it's worse than Ryanair.
Silly me thought it was like BA's policy if you can put it in the overhead bin, it's good.

Ordered, thanks.

You do, but its still nice to travel with just carry on luggage, even if you could check in a bag. You can walk straight through the baggage hall, and when you travel light, the connections at either end are easier. When you have a big bag, then you end up bringing extra stuff just in case. If you choose your clothes carefully, so they are easy to dry, you can hand wash clothes and wear them again.

The downside comes if you need to carry something which is prohibited in carry on luggage (something sharp, or bottles with > 100ml of stuff).

Pah! Only 7 night? you must be a girl. I'm away for 12 at a time and can get the lot in one carry-on

I took delivery of one of these this morning. The capacity of this bag is generous, certainly, but the build quality is pretty shoddy. I don't feel like I've got 25 quids worth of bag here. There's little structure to it, as expected, but consequently it's very easy to deform the bag (with stiffer items like shoes etc) outside of desired dimensions - could easily fall foul of a more pedantic RyanAir inspection.

The lack of side handle is often mentioned - this will actually make it more difficult to get in and out of an inspection rack, and the top handle basically is not attached to much - the entire weight of the bag is held up by the flimsy outer material. Any small nick or, heaven forbid, rip in the material will likely see you cradling this bag like a baby trying to prevent it exploding.

This bag might see you ok for a few lightweight trips, but if you want something that's going to take even a moderate amount of hammer, or safely contain a laptop, or hold anything more substantial than about 8kg, this bag really isn't going to cut it, in my opinion.

An experienced packer can easily ensure that any chances of mis-shaping or damage are minimised.

Yes it could be stronger, but then it would be heavier and less voluminous. There are other heavier options available.

The construction and handles are perfectly capable of coping with weights well in excess of the normal 10kg maximum, and as you will be the only person handling this luggage you'd have to be pretty stupid to damage your own gear.

With normal handling and usage, this bag will last you indefinitely. I'm very happy with mine.
