easy jet changing the cabin bag sizes in July. might not be for all.

Easyjet aren't changing them to smaller than this

Plastic bag is lighter and can be taken as hand luggage so definite mis-advertising.

Amazing. What sort of mentality would trust their possessions to this tat. Easyjet customers presumably?

0.75Kg isn't that light.
It might be the lightest cabin bag style bag, but its definitely not the lightest bag you can take in the cabin.

There are backpacks lighter than that.

I got this bag last time it was reduced, within 3 flights the handles started to break since it was less than 30 days I was able to get a refund.

This ^^. Or if you need something sturdier, one of those woven shopping bags. And they're cheaper.

Found it: Your text here - 0.58kg for 40liters of capacity
Even lighter for the smaller models.

I had a look at one of these. Way too flimsy for me. My wife would have shot me if I'd brought one home considering it was supposed to replace a flimsy broken case which didn't last long.

Am I not right in thinking EasyJet have no weight limit for cabin baggage and the weight is only applicable to hold luggage?

Absolutely correct.

Their 44litre bag (cabin sized, 1cm more than the "new" easyet regs) are 745g.

Just a thought...
I bought one of these a few months ago from Argos the last time they were reduced to £9.99.
Used it once for a one week trip and the stitching came away from the handle.
To be fair to Argos they swapped it straight away, but I'm not 100% confident with it now.

Yep. As long as you can lift it into the the overhead... of course this is within reason. I doubt you'd get away with anything much over 10Kg on safety grounds.

Ryanair do have a 10kg limit though, although in my experience is as long as you can stuff it into their measuring cage then they never check the weight.

I flew Easyjet couple of times in last few weeks and got a DSLR flight case weighing around 17Kg into carry on each time, no one batted an eyelid

Don't fly out of Katowice, Poland then.

They check every bag.

For those who are wondering: here is the new Easyjet cabin bags policy.

Executive summary by me (and so not definitive -- follow the link if you want something authoritative):
● Allowed: 56x45x25cm. But it may be taken from you at the gate and put in the hold if the flight is busy.
● Guaranteed: 50x40x20cm. You will be able to keep it with you, even when some bags in the 'allowed' category are being taken off to the hold.

I bought this bag before when it was also on offer. I thought it too light & flimsy, took it back. Later bought the CabinMax 44L Rucksack at 14.99, is so much better.

Don't fly out of Dusseldorf airport on a UK passport. I watched Germans for 20 minutes going through the check point with no request for them to have their hand luggage weighed. As soon as the desk girl saw my GB passport she asked me to put my kit on the scales. When I went through the second time with a €60 baggage fine due to a couple of extra kilos she had a big smirk on her face. Furthermore another desk girl attempted to charge me €80 instead of the €60.
I am a nice old pensioner but €60 down this week & will have to recoup this money by going without other things.
Easyjet for me from now on.

We flew out of Liverpool in April and they checked and weighed all hand luggage. If it was more than 10kgs they we given people the option of reducing it or paying for it to go in the hold. This was at the gate and at check in

easyjet aren't changing their restrictions at all, they are just saying that if your bag is less than a certain smaller dimension, they will guarantee that you can take it in the cabin, you will still be able to have the larger 56x45x25 or whatever it is

If you couldn't get away with over 10Kg then they would make it a limit of 10Kg. BA let you take 23 so I hardly think 10 is dangerous.

If €60 is such a big deal to you then you should have just taken the "couple" of extra kilos out of the bag and carried it...

Yes, was about to make that point too. On this occasion it is one of their better polices. I'm a regular flyer, and more often that not I am on flights where they are asking for around 10 volunteers to put cabin bags in and if they don't get the 10 they will force random people to hand it over. They offer a faster boarding to volunteers, but now with allocated seating if you do the logic there isn't any benefit for them. I would stand worrying they would pick me, my case being a lot smaller than most, and face the added hassle of waiting around the carousel. This brings a level of fairness.

If they got rid of their stupid admin fee all would be well!

Despite some peoples comments about the quality of the bag, overall the reviews on Argos from people who've bought one, are very good. At the price its a good deal. Thanks.

BA fly half empty planes, so it isn't a problem for them.

Even then they catch fire !!

Had 4 flights so far with a Trek Buddy Rucksack...:3 Look out for specials. Deform-able bags are less frowned upon than solid sided ones for cabin use. One thing to always remember, wear as much as possible and stuff coat pockets with hard/valuable and electronics. They never ever weighed me. At 10kg weight, that bag will dig in like trying to lug a small child on your shoulder. oO A rucksack is better. Best of all is a bag with wheels, but that decreases the loaded weight that you can load into the over-heads, and your packing area shrinks. (_;) One other thing I have also noticed... rambling on here... You can put under seats in Ryanair and Easyjet...;) Unless you are in the Emergency Exits, where ALL luggage has to be in the overheads. (Info correct as Sept for Ryanair and March for Easyjet) Kind regards, Mark

This is correct. I have a shop specialising in hand luggage. Easyjet have confirmed to me that if you are on a busy flight, your 56x45x25 bag may have to be checked into the hold, but this will still be FREE OF CHARGE.

By the way, I sell a hand luggage bag for £7.99 that only weighs 0.5kg, so this is not the lightest handluggage in the world! Just saying......

I bought this bag last year. It's really flimsy and the zips broke straight away.

looking at the website they are not "changing" the size (at least not yet). they have a "guarantee" that If you use the smaller bag size then it will be guaranteed to come on the flight with you whereas on busier flights those taking advantage of the larger size may have to have it moved to the hold at no extra cost. it just means you have to wait at the carousel if it's in the hold.

Great bag

Bryanair do check weight of hand luggage occasionally.

Just got back from Egypt with this. It was used as a beach bag as well as we forgot ours. No problem with it what so ever. decent little bag for the money.
