Will this fit as hand luggage on low-costs?

I know it can be used as a carry on. You'd have to check with the airline.

Yes, but only if you pay extra. Too big for the free ones included in the flight ticket.
This is 54cm high and most of the airlines accept under 55cm, however the free luggage should be max 40cm. If you do not fill in to the top this one and compress it a bit, you're probably will be ok.

Sweeping statement and not true. Whilst you'll have to pay extra on Ryanair, it'll be free on Easyjet. And obviously other budget airlines will vary.

Not sweeping at all. That's what I was asking about i.e. the worst restriction
this is listed on Osprey's website as
54 x 35 x 23

Just scanning through their list on Osprey (assuming it's up to date)
ospreyeurope.com/gb_…de/

edit: says at the bottom "Last Updated: 03/05/2019"



The ones that stick out are:

Ryanair:

I was not referring to all the budget airlines. I travel with Ryanair and with Wizzair and my comments apply to these. Sweeping statement because I did not put 'pending individual airline rules' or what? I can't cover all. The person interested should look into this if has an individual airline in mind. I referred to the worse case scenario.
Your comment is sweeping, you suggested you took this to RY and was ok, however this does not means it will happen to all of us, as RA rules are clear this is too big.

Absolutely agree. Some unhelpful comments here.
Here's a link to Ryanair's policy page:

10kg Check-in Bag

"The 10kg Check-in Bag costs between €/£10 and €/£25, depending on the route and travel dates selected. Please be advised once purchased this product is non-refundable. Non-priority customers who have not added a bag to their booking can still purchase a 10kg Check-In Bag at the airport bag drop desk or at the boarding gate for €/£25."


so depth may still be a problem (?)

can the 23cm depth be compressed easily to 20cm?

This is probably a price-match with Go Outdoors:

Try before you buy on something like this is the ideal way. It's just a shame you typically can't always get the same deals in store that you can online.

That's why I commented about not travelling 12 miles without a discount card, the red Is now 72.00 in m/l but how ugly is it in reality?

Apologise i thought you could get it delivered from there. I quite like the red if I'm honest. 🙈 i really wanted the blue one but you can't get that anymore.

Yes, but I guess people want to know the worse case scenario. And Ryan Air is the one people use the most. Lots of airlines still allow the larger 55cm and lots of them only allow 40cm. I do not know if BA can be classed as budget airline. Perhaps Jet2 and Flybe are better examples, they are budget (sometimes) and allow bigger size.
Edited by: "sheffield788" 9th Feb
Used this bag on easyjet and ryanair last month, I over packed it but nobody cared. It fits the sizer if packed properly for both airlines, being a soft bag though obviously you can make it not fit! Bag itself is rugged and comfortable, was playing the whole trip by ear so it travelled around with me most days including about 15 desert miles near Wadi Rum and it didn't bother me at all. This will certainly be my go to bag for budget airlines in future, I have another that is ryanair max size at around 44l but it sacrifices a lot of the comforts.

To be honest Ryan Air have dropped off my radar since they dropped the baggage allowance to J*zz Air tier. They're not worst case they're just not considered. Worst case for me (and I would go as far as to say a lot of people) is still the 55x35x20.

I used Ryanair over the past 10 year about 50 times. I used Wizzair about 20 times. I always go with the 40cm luggage. I only used Easy Jet twice in 10 years and Jet2 once. I guess it depends where you live and what airlines fly to your local. Price also counts, at least in my case. RA still seems to be the most popular budget airline.
I do not know why worse case for you is 55cm, to me this is the norm, I do not know if there are any airlines allowing much more over 55cm, and in my opinion I think is right not to allow big luggage, so only half of the passengers will have room to store their suitcases, as the other half took all the space.

I guess I'm fortunate in that until middle of last year Wizz didn't fly from my nearest two airports so I didn't use them for short trips. Only times I flew with them I was going for longish trips so booked a proper case to be checked. I've gotten so used to doing weekends with either a 55x35x20 hard case or the Fairpoint 40L I don't think I could pack for the terrible tier carry on without missing something while I'm away. I have to say the handful of times I flew Wizz sometime between 2012 and 2015 I didn't think they'd expand in the UK market. I've been proven wrong but I'm still yet to understand why.
dr__mario09/02/2020 17:45

No, I just roll clothes up. It was the shoes that caused the issue, that and the fact I was at a different hotel every night and gone again by 8am so rarely bothered to put things back nicely!

Wizzair is popular mainly because they fly to central-eastern Europe and Baltic countries. Lots of people living in the UK are originally from these countries, so this is where they go away, visiting families. To me Wizzair is the worse airline by far, but have no choice, as it is the only budget one flying in a particular destination I use.
I found it difficult when RA changed its luggage policy but eventually I've got over it. If there are essentials I can buy from abroad, this is what I do, as it is cheaper.
My circumstances are a bit different too. 40 cm is fine to me. This is mainly because I rarely go in city breaks now, with small children. So, regardless how large or small is the luggage allowance, we need to have at least a checked suitcase with us anyway. So put as much as we can in it and the rest goes in the small luggage. I have to agree with you, if I was still to go in city breaks, 40cm is not much.

This is a very specific use bag, it's for those of us that move around a lot rather than just drop our luggage at a hotel. Amazon is filled with generic cabin bags, look at the cabin max ones for a fair cost/quality balance. They do vary a bit though, and be careful as some only fit certain airlines.

Lowe Alpine Airzone Pro, cracker bag, they do a Camino version that opens like this at the front as well as normal top opening.
Obviously not carry on friendly, but I figure if I need to I'd probably risk it as they seem to look on backpacks in a more favorably light, I know my daughter used hers traveling to, and around South America and had no problems(no warranties given or implied)
