Excellent for short trips on budget airlines!
on 27 August 2012
I bought this set of 2 wheeled bags for a weekend abroad for a friends wedding. We were flying with a budget airline whose maximum hand luggage size is 55x40x20. These cases are advertised at that size, and when they came i measured them and found it to be correct. However, dont be expecting to cram them full to the brim, and fill the front pouches and them still be within the size limits. In mine, i had a suit jacket,shirt,trousers and tie,a pair of shoes, underwear, 2 pairs of shorts, one pair of jeans, a towel, toiletries and several t-shirts and it was still well within the size limits even when i put a few extra bits and bobs in from duty free. The staff at the gate didnt even query the size with the metal griddles they have these days. There were many others using the same bags and all of us sailed through without being asked to prove the size or weight. With all that stuff in my bag weighed 8KG so still another 2KG allowance! The case itself is really light. The other reviewers are correct when they say that the cases dont always stand up without help, if loaded incorrectly they topple over. I looked at the bottom and noticed that it is slightly curved and has possibly been made worse by being packed tight in a box for delivery. The more i use them the more sturdy they become as the bottom seems to straighten out. However, dont let that put you off, these bags are great. You could fit the 'kitchen sink' in them, they pass the cabin bag regulations, you hardly notice you are pulling them along and they are a great bargain!!!! WELL WORTH IT.
