plenty instore in Irvine. I purchased one too.
I got one recently also, I have 2 cabin max bags as well and this looks just as good.
Hey I got of these today (instore at Huddersfield), very very light but good quality. I cut off all the naff straps on the side and the zip laces as they just get in the way of things. Its really just a big lightweight rucksack (or backpack if you prefer) but that is what I was looking for so that I could use it for more than just using it when I am travelling on aeroplanes.
really cant fault the shop... except i always spend too bl**dy much everytime i go in lol

Lighter is better for budget flights. The lighter the case the more stuff you can take as there is usually a 10kg limit for hand luggage
Isn't it a pain though, carrying 10kg on your shoulders/back when you can pay a little bit more and have one on wheels..... I know I wouldnt want to be carrying my hand luggage round the airport with all what I get in my 10kg allowance lol

Shame no wheels on this or it would of been a super buy.

No stated weight limit on hand luggage, just goes by size only. So could prove heavy for some to cart around.
Ryanair and BMIBaby is 10kg max for hand baggage
Good price as RRP is £24.99

Yer good if you want to look super cheap, have a bit of class and get something on wheels, I just got a Revelation cabin case on wheels for £10 on sale, much easier to take around too.

Just what I was looking for. Thanks OP for sharing.
Some are missing the point of this bag, its only just over 600g. Ones with wheels are obviously heavier. A wheeled one is no good if you have only 5kg also.
This would be is mainly for Ryanair passengers who are going for a short trip and prefer to save some pounds on the checked baggage charges and maximize the size/weight of your cabin baggage.

Restrictions set by this airline:

"Strictly one item of cabin baggage per passenger (excluding infants) weighing up to 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm is permitted. (handbag, briefcase, laptop, shop purchases, camera etc.) must be carried in your 1 permitted piece of cabin baggage.

Extra/oversized cabin baggage will be refused at the boarding gate, or where available, placed in the hold of the aircraft for a fee of £50/€50. If you are unsure, check at the Bag Drop desk before going through security."

Who cares if you look cheap? The majority of people who would buy this are doing so to avoid extra charges on Ryanair and Easyjet flights. No one is going to care what you look like when your flying on a low cost, i.e. “cheap” airline.

I have a cabin max bag. I’m not exactly the strongest person in the world but I can easily carry 10kg on my shoulders with no problems. In fact I prefer to carry my luggage that way as it’s easier for going up and down stairs, getting on trains etc.
How does this compare to the Cabin Max bags? I need something like this, but I worry that lightweight means they don't be durable

And to quote the immortal Super Hans:

"You've got a bloody suitcase on wheels. Real men don't get the Earth to help carry their luggage, mate. They carry it themselves"
Gordinho

Ryanair and BMIBaby is 10kg max for hand baggage



also jet2,
easyjet has no limit,just states that as long as you can lift it into the overhead lockers,but for how long,as they are already trialling the seat reservation lark that jet2 uses to extract more money from you

My views on this:

If you can't carry the weight easily, consider getting one with wheels.
If you self-conscious and worry people will think bad of you for having one of these bags, consider not getting one.
If you don't mind wasting 2-3kg on your weight allowance, consider getting one on wheels.
If you don't like using this type of bag, consider not getting one

If none of the above applies to you, consider buying this bag
How do you buy it online to collect instore? or is it just a case of heading the shop and hoping they have some?

From the 1st August Wizz Air is launching a new cabin baggage policy … From the 1st August Wizz Air is launching a new cabin baggage policy trial on the London-Katowice route to encourage passengers to bring smaller baggage onboard and make the boarding process smoother and faster. Wizz Air strict one cabin baggage policy per passenger remains unchanged. What is the difference between the cabin baggage types? – SIZE! 1. Small cabin bag:-If your cabin baggage is of size 42x32x25cm or smaller it can be taken onboard free of charge. It must fit under the seat in front of you. The weight allowance is 10kg. 2. Large cabin bag: If your cabin baggage is larger than the dimensions of a small cabin bag but not exceeding 55x40x20cm, you can take it onboard for a newly introduced €10 fee. It must fit in the overhead compartment. The weight allowance is 10kg.



just wait, the rest of "cheap" airlines will follow. i know they call it trial on one route only, but we know how it's gonna end

Indeed.

Most of the people buying these are so they can use them on budget airlines and avoid the hold baggage charges. (Currently £30/15kg and £50/20kg on RyanAir so well worth saving)

I have the Cabin Max version of this and it's excellent. Very light and no wheels and handle parts takling up weight and space. I managed to get 5 days worth of clothes for Prague in autumn into mine .... with room to spare. Could easily do a week somewhere hot with one as clothes will be smaller and lighter than what I needed for Prague in late September.

Also prefer having both my hands free and on your last day when you inevitably have to check out about 10 hours before your flight then you effectively wander around with a rucksack on all day before heading for the airport. Rather than looking like some tourist wuss dragging his silly little wheely case around and getting in everyones way ....
back available to order online for store pick up
cheers OP and mrcho

just ordered one to get sent by post as it'll cost me more than £3 to get to Home Bargains and back
can anyone confirm they have used this ok on a Ryanair flight?
I've used the CabinMax version on Ryanair and this looks like it's pretty much identical. The dimensions and weight are identical and it looks the same in the picture.
I've just been into Home Bargains, they don't look very big. I measured it and it's about 50cm high rather than 55. I don't know whether to get this or order the CabinMax one.
Postage is a very reasonable £2.99 much better option for some as store finder shows "Home Bargains" are not on every high street.
Superb! Just what i was looking for, i didnt want one on wheels as i need hands free to push pushchair or sort little one out
Buy one they are good as you have considerably more room than a trolley suitcase as the push down bars on the trolley ones use quite a large amount of space up inside the case

And I believe Thomson is 5kg.

Pretty much always a weight limit on hand luggage!
Loads instore in Long Eaton.

Quality seemed to me to be just adequate. If I'd paid the full price, I'd be disappointed, but for a tenner, it's fine. Have some heat, OP.

ETA: I would not expect this to be durable.

I also prefer a rucksack as I get fed up of having to put the handle in on my wheely case and carrying it up the stairs in the airports and to get on the plane.

As far as caring what I look like or what people think of me I wouldn't be booking budget airlines if I cared. I has a very expensive hard shell suitcase, however, it got trashed after only about 3 flights when something was dropped on it by baggage handlers and pierced the shell
Sub zero luggage, the smallest ones.... Lightweight,on wheels and fit airport specifications/requirements for hand luggage. Yes there not £10 but I don't want to man up seeing as Im a woman and the last thing I want to be doing is carrying 10kg on my shoulders. Also whoever said wheeled luggage weighs 5kg, also seems to be missing the point when mine only weighs 1.6kg....hmmm let me think 10kg on your back or 1kg less luggage....simples
At the end of the day this bag will be suitable for some and not others. There's no right or wrong?.
