Bought one of these for my daughter to take on a trip as carry on baggage; so impressed I bought another for myself and am considering a third for my son. Very lightweight only 2.5kg. Slightly smaller than Ryanair carry on baggage size limit so currently within all airlines carry on restrictions. Good quality and two inner zipped compartments work well for organised packing. I managed to pack 5 day's worth of summer clothes and shoes in this, plus hair dryer, hairbrushes, cosmetics, umbrella, chargers and my handbag. Can't believe I fitted it all in! I normally use Travelpro or Tumi which are good quality, however they weigh so much that the amount you can pack in weight is much reduced if travelling with budget airlines. Would definitely recommend this product.

I love this Eastpac suitcase I have used it many times since I purchased it (12-18 months ago?). It fits into the cabin as hand luggage, but I would be happy to put into the hold as the construction is very good and I have no concerns that it would break and being soft should withstand the brutality of airport baggage handlers!
The compression straps also help to pull an over-packed bag back to a cabin sized bag! Useful front pocket for travel documents. and a place to secure the zips to the side of the bag with a padlock if desired.
The bag opens to the side and splits in half. The inside is segregated into two compartments, with zipped covers. I use the back section (The bit where the handle is) for my more delicate items as the back is reinforced I can fit my straighteners in next to the handle! Once I have packed both sections I zip the covers over which allows you to fold the case in half without everything falling out. Once closed I find I can slide my book and slim handbag into the center section (between the two zipped compartments) from the top of the case. Solving the one bag boarding rule but meaning I have easy access to my on board stuff!
There is an easy to operate pull out handle for pulling the case on two wheels and two fixed handles one on the side and one on the top. These are invaluable when carrying on the tube or lifting into luggage racks.
I am a bit of a walker so tend to walk to and from train stations to my home, hotel etc so the wheels need to be man enough to cope with a 15-40 minute walk on a regular occasion - so far no issues.
This cabin sized bag has been large enough for all of my trips recently when going on a 1-2 week sun holiday or business trip, I have just purchased a larger one for those few occasions when I need a hold bag (Skiing?). I hope it is as good as this one is!

I have been travelling a lot for business for the last 20 years, although usually for 2 nights, no more. This suitcase is perfect for that.

Using the straps to tighten the suitcase makes most skeptical check-in people look at it and immediately declare it okay, seeing as it's rather thin most of the time.

I put the heavies, like a pair of shoes, chargers (for laptop, phone, toothbrush, camera batteries), my own headphones I need as an interpreter, electric toothbrush and non-liquid make-up in the bottom part of the suitcase. Clothes go in the top compartment. In between the two separate compartments I have my laptop and bag with liquids. So handy when going through security to not have to search for those but just pull them out...

Being able to tighten it up like this one is means the top part of the suitcase is not stiff. Still, the plastic bits attached to it on the wheels side are well placed and sturdy enough to make the suitcase stand up quite securely.

The wheels are the quietest I have had on any suitcase yet. In fact, they are nearly silent. Excellent for not making a nuisance of/drawing attention to myself when walking the streets late at night.

Needless to say, the colour is lovely and so unique, nobody could possibly mistake my suitcase for theirs. :-)

I bought this bag through a Black Friday Deal. It's a well-built, sturdy, light carry-on. For a 42litre bag though, I find the way the space is split up rather odd: the top and bottom of the case are both 'zipped off' from the 'main compartment', which due to the way the zips are positioned doesn't leave much space, and there are no compression straps at all. The large front pocket seems to hold as much as the inner areas though, which is nice to see.

All in all a nice bag for an over-night or weekend trip if you can get it at the right price - it's overpriced for the RRP.

Bought this bag to use on Easyjet/Ryanair/bmibaby flights - the quality is excellent, it successfully fits all those airline baggage frames at the airport, and better still the funky camo colour means the kids are happy to wheel it all the time without complaint!

Side straps are very useful and effective at compressing the depth of the case.

The first thing you notice when take this case out the box is it looks smaller than you think. I have one particular travel case that although more like a carry bag, is so puffed out even when empty that we're always stopped when travelling. With this case you'll never have to worry about that, as not only does it naturally not puff out, the straps on the side enable you to make this case look as small as necessary to match almost any hand luggage restriction sizes. Its made of thick, tough, hard-wearing material that I'm very confident will last the test of time. Along with good internal lining, there are two main separation zipped covers through the middle allowing you to essentially split the case in two, which is very handy. All in all this is a travel bag that actually feels like its worth the £80+ asking price, making it an absolute bargain at the £35 I got it for in Amazon's Black Friday week.

Great piece of travel it. Saw a colleague with one and decided to give it a try - exceeded my expectations - will be interesting to see how sturdy it is but initial view is great.

This is a great bag, not only is a fabulous colour but really light, good wheels and holds loads for what it is. has a double height for the handle which is good for tall/short people and if you are in a busy area to keep it close to you. I rarely use it via the handles but it's handy when lifting off the conveyor belt etc. Top handle is super helpful.
Inside it's pretty simple, there is only a very small pocket on the side that can't hold too much. Probably mostly use it for change or keys. There are two elastic straps inside to hold it all in place.
Side pocket on the outside is very small, it can just hold my oyster card (credit card size)
Front pocket is has a flap over the zip (which is REALLY handy for weather) but slightly too small to put a notebook, can just fit my ipad if the stuff in my bag is flat.

BUT, highly recommend for the price and size it's perfect. Also fine with Ryanair and EasyJet.

Very good quality material all round (wheels, frame, zips etc.). The only reservation is that due to its soft material it sometimes does not stand on its wheels and the plastic protectors in the upright position. This is affected by how you pack it as the plastic protectors are not connected to the rigid frame part of the case(by design). In my view this is easily manageable and the extra flexibility (it can expand or compact with the straps) is most useful to me.

I am considering buying another for my wife.

Love this bag. I already have a fabulous Berghaus Optimus bag and was going to buy another one when I was tempted by the amazing 20yr guarantee on this one. Although the Berghaus cabin bag is good; the smoothness of the wheels when towing this one round on the city streets are fabulous; much smoother. It holds loads too and you can even quash a laptop in between when you fold it over. Feels robust, and well, you have the reassurance of the guarantee. Jet2 loved it. Easyjet, however, charged my daughter excess for it!! OK she is an ERASMUS student and had packed loads in it but be warned!! This colour is fabulous btw, has a lovely sheen that makes it look really nice and the fabric is durable and easy to wipe down. Will definitely be buying another Eastpak bag in the future.
