    It should weigh no more than 10kg and not exceed the maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. It has to be able to fit in the overhead or under the seat.

    Kg or kilogram is a unit of weight. Litre is a unit of content. The only thing they have in common is that 1 litre of water weighs 1 kg. Different substances will have different weight to content ratios.

    heres a picture of the thing that they will measure with, you have to be able to fit your carry on bag in one of these
    I made the mistake of having a hard cover cabin bag, it would not fit even thoug it was the righ dimentions and they made me pay to put in the hold

    Litre?

    ok i use ryanair alot and i have a 35lt backpack and they never check it because they know it WILL fit i think you can get away with a 45lt or 55lt but it deppends on how much stuff you load into it, aslong as you come in those dimensions above you be ok

    I also fly with Ryanair a lot ( 15 times per year minimum ) & they seem to be getting stricter all the time. Last week coming back from Madrid all passengers in the queue were told they could not take their duty free home unless it all fitted in the one bag & that bag fitted in the blue ' bin ' by the departure gate . They checked every single bag on that flight & some people were made to leave stuff behind. A similar thing happened on flight home from Prague in Jan - so a word of warning , be careful !

    I used a 35Ltr rucksack last time I went with Ryanair and I reckon that is pretty much the size you can easily get away with. You could use bigger but then you couldn't fill it to keep within the 55cm x 40cm x 20cm limit so you woul dhave to part fill it to keep within restrictions. The dimensions and weight are the important things - not the litres.
