DUNLOP 16" CABIN SAFE SUITCASE £7.99 @ SPORTS DIRECT !!!

Found 30th Jun 2013
Bargain! Great quality, though I've yet to use it! comes with a padlock and a luggage tag!

Size is perfect for carry on hand luggage, and fits within Easyjet's new guaranteed size hand luggage too...

Loads in stock in store , and they do a slightly larger one for £11.99, but its not guaranteed by easyjet to be ok to carry on.... details here: easyjet.com/en/…age

OP needs to add the delivery cost as well of £3.99.

i brought the slightly larger £11.99 version, was'nt bad for the price and i can confirm it fit in the size check frame for hand luggage on Jet2 airways, think its the same size frame for Easyjet.

What is the weight of this case? I've been looking at the 'world's lightest' ones in Asda which are only something like 1.6kg, but pretty expensive at £25 and may be just one centimeter too tall for Ryanair, despite having a smaller total volume. These airlines are being pretty sneaky by declaring new carry on case dimensions where just one side is a little bit shorter that the previous global standard.

While these are nice I find the weight is an issue when you are limited. I use THIS as it's light weight and maximum fill and is also well made and comfortable to wear.

But for £8 it's got to be hot.

says 2.8kgs on the dunlop site. easyjet.com/en/…age is the detail on easyjets new policy on hand luggage. 50 x 40 x 20cm is their 'guaranteed' to be allowed inside the cabin size limit. 47 x 34 x 16cm is the size of this case

I understand. however on the easyjet site (who were flying with!) it states 'No weight restriction applies as long as you can place and retrieve the cabin bag safely in the overhead lockers without assistance'... so we're all good!

I don't fly easyjet often as they don't fly from my local airport. I normally use Ryanair and they look at the logo on the back and don't ever make me put it in the size test frame.

Thanks kblue08. I'm going through the ones we already have to see if we need to consider buying one or two new ones. Now the kids are a bit older, I guess they can carry a useful share of the load too, instead of just a little rucksack with electronic games and a couple of books.

Sadly, we're stuck with Ryanair this year and they can be real gits when it comes to carry on luggage. They still don't seem to know about lifting the luggage scales at check in with the toe of your shoe to reduce the weight of your main case though

I too bought the larger size and was fine on Ryanair

wishing id got the larger one now!

yep can also confirm the slightly larger 20" one is ok to use on both RyanAir and easyJet flights as hand luggage

They are always this price in there bought one years ago now

They are very good, I got one.

that is what i was wondering too, it says 55cm H, will that be acceptable?

Ive got the slightly bigger one and had no problems on easy jet

For info: Thomson carry on size is 55x40x20cm and max weight 5kg (7kg for Premium)

Went with them last month and they weighed the bag at check in but only glanced at its size.

never buy cheap luggage

handle will break, wheels will be cheap, won't be waterproof, cheap zips will break in 2 or 3 trips and will seriously inconvenience you at some point when it breaks

get a good case for £50 once and will last a lifetime and have no hassles

What about the hassle of spending another £50 when you find your case no longer meets the new requirements?

Have brought this and its OK not brilliant and not rubbish, its certainly not a hot deal for what it is.

When you see these in the flesh they are ....really very very tiny and designed in such a way you would be lucky to get some shoes and a few tshirts in.

The Karrimor Transit 40 fits within the Ryanair/easyjet specs and has both the backpack and wheeled functionality.

This is theoretically true, but I bought an incredibly cheap "one way" suitcase once in the States (so described because the salesman said it was good for one trip but probably not much use for more) and it went on and on adn on, probably making between 20 and 30 longhaul flights without incident. Ditto with a piece of hand luggage like this which I bought in HK for a similar price. It probably accompanied me on 50 or so longhaul flights before giving up the ghost.

Even thought is it slightly taller than the specifications listed, it fits in the cage. As long as you do not have the expander zips open then the 20" version of this trolley can be taken onboard as hand luggage on RyanAir and easyJet flights

Got to disagree with this. We've got four of the bigger version and have used them for the last four years - the handle hasn't broken, nor have the wheels, it is cabin luggage so won't be stuck on a trolley by the plane in a rain storm.

The only down side is that we do look a bit of a family of chavs as we walk down with our matching Sports Direct suitcases, but as we're getting on a Ryanair flight we don't stand out that much.

I was worried about this too, but the 20" version fits so easily within the Ryanair cage. It's not even close.

sorry bro, that was fake

Blimey 2.8Kg no wonder it needs wheels. That's heavier than the luggage it holds.

I bought the smaller 1 a few weeks ago and for £8 you can`t go wrong. but there really isn`t much room inside.I weighed both of mine 5 mins ago and they each weigh 1.9kg,not 2.5kg

sorry bro, that was fake



then the two other i got in germany must be fake as well

Yep same price, as I think Karrimor is actually owned by SportsDirect. Although with SD you can pick up from store to save delivery ££

Quality is not something to shout about I know as I have one of this. after one trip handle broke. but for the price you can't moan too much.

Guys I have this case. Quility is appalling. Zip broke first time. But for once a year use. Ok I guess but very bad quility.

be careful with this deal

especially if this case weighs 2.8kg

when iv flown with thomsons and flythomascook they only allowed a cabin case with max weight of 5kg!

i too have been trying to get the worlds lightsest cabin case which weighs 1.59kg but thinks its ridiculuoulsy expensive for what they ask at £25!

why fly with easyjet in the first place?

My cabin bag broke recently and I have purchased this one: argos.co.uk/sta…htm - yet to use it but fingers crossed it will be fine!

hey everyone, for me this was a bargain - was looking for a cheap cheap small carry on suitcase, weight didnt bother me as im not restricted on the flight. Also, a quality, lasting, durable case for £7.99 can't be expected!... if it lasts me two flights (as its not going in the hold) I'll be really pleased

Have the slightly bigger one http://www.sportsdirect.com/dunlop-suitcase-20-inch-709901

Have removed the handle on the top to make it 55cm to comply with Ryanairs regulations. Not a big deal as we dont really use that handle.

We have 2 they seem sturdy enough and have used them a few times with no issues.
