When Ryanair quoted £192 to take two suitcases abroad I told them to poke off and I'll take hand luggage! My boyfriend laughed. So did my friends. I looked around and went for this one as it fits into Ryanair's strict guidelines. It's lightweight, and fits into the 55x40x20cm ruling.
True, it is flimsy and I am sure will not last a lifetime but for the price I do not expect to. It is made from an almost 'oilcloth' fabric, it isn't going to be thrown from the plane as it will be with me in the cabin. So, will be looked after.
I'm all packed for a week. In it I used the 'rolling technique' and it comfortably fits the following:
3 maxi dresses
A long skirt
A large sarong
2 pairs of shoes
A beach bag
A cross over body bag/ clutch
Soap bag (fitting 10x100ml containers)
First aid kit
I even have room to take my cardi off at the airport and put it in the bag.
This has revolutionised the way I will travel in the future.
