Just had the new Matalan catalogue through the door and they are advertising worlds lightest suitcases £25 extra small £30 small £35 medium and £40 for large. The largest weighs only 2.18kg and is 77 cm which is very light giving you to pack more for your hols. House of Fraser sell similar cases to these at nearly double the price. This deal does not start till 20th March so the discount has not been applied to the Matalan website yet

These are £37-99 at Asda for the large, but OOs at the moment in black. Available in blue.
They are good, bought 2 large ones last year for £28 in an Asda sale.

I bought 2 today. I went not realising the deal started until 20th when they went through at full price I showed the sales assistant the catalogue and she amended the price. It was not till I got home I realised I was 4 days early but she must not of realised either :-)

Every suitcase is light till you put your stuff into it

anyone know what quality is like? will they only last one holiday?

Are the 4 wheeled ones included in the offer?

you get what you pay for - these cheap so called lightweight ones are very flimsy - will be OK-ish for cabin baggage but left in the hands of baggage handlers may not make it to your first destination.

For robustness get a good make of polycarbonate hard sided case.

for example I got a Titan 4 wheel spinner cabin size case in TK Maxx this weekend for £40 - 5 year warranty and will be built to last - Titan is a quality German luggage supplier

ah just seen the link - those handles fail very quickly

My £40 Titan is a much better buy

There is a 10 year guarantee with the case so the handle would be covered if you were so worried the makers must be pretty confidant that are sturdy enough

ah ha - made by it luggage - hum 10 year warranty - could be worth a look for the low cost airlines routes !
