heat added but shame the deal is not every store
I need to make some corrections to what has been already said.

Some of the original details may have been accurate at time of original posting. However I am writing this in March 2014, with respect to the Lidl bag that has just come on sale and I have purchased last week.

The Easyjet hand baggage allowance is currently (March 2014) 56cm x 45cm x 25cm. I just checked their website. (A previous post above made an error in saying the limit was 36cm in one dimension).

I have a Lidl trolleybag rucksack in question. Despite the "advertised empty" dimensions, I can assure you that with anything in it, the dimensions are around 55cm x 30cm x 30cm. I have just accurately measured it.

They therefore would not meet airline carry on requirements. I can not see how the bag being discussed (the 2014 bag) could possibly be 20cm in one dimension at all; without being completely empty, or only having something like a newspaper in it.

I bought this with the intention of replacing my "normal" rucksack "carry on size" rucksack; as that is now 12 years old and falling apart. In my "old normal" style carry on rucksack, I used to be able to squeeze all my motorcycle touring kit (less helmet), and books/clothes for 10 day trips. I am sure that I would not be able to do it with this pack.

The rigid nature required for a telescopic handle and space it takes up, does effect the load capability, and flexibility required to cram it into the airline carry on luggage box.

With my old style carry on size rucksack ; I was sick of having a sweaty back when it was pressed against my back, in semitropical countries. Eg the Canaries. You even get a sweaty back hiking around UK cities, with the compressed clothing under it onto your back.

My intention was to used this Lidl bag as a trolley where possible to help me with this.
But I am not sure if I can get it on the airline, and I may have to go back to my old flexible bag instead.

Quite a few times in the past with my old carry on rucksack, I have had to push it into the box at the airport to show it fits in. With the older flexible bag I could do this. I would no be able to do it with this Lidl bag I am sure; with the same amount of stuff in it.

My bag differs to the one in the picture. In the past I have bought a brilliant rucksack bag from Lidl (non trolley type); but also a rubbish one that I had to take bag. The stitching on the rubbish one ripped out the first time I used it! So they do alter substantially in quality.

Take a metre ruler to the store and some padding and the lasted airline dimensions, is all I can say to be sure; as the dimensions seem to only be a "rough guide". However the carry on boxes at the airports are fixed and not flexible!
