Brilliant bag. So good, I will buy again!
on 1 June 2015
I love this bag. I've used it many times and is perfect as a cabin bag. This is 'as it says on the tin' - lightweight and therefore I would not use it to go in the hold and be thrown around by the baggage handlers.
The reason I bought it was because I was looking for a bag that would get the most out of the maximum dimensions allowed on both Ryanair and Easyjet (it's perfect for Easyjet - even if you fill it to 'bulging', as I do, as they have a larger size restriction and don't have a weight allowance). I have placed it into the size cages for both airlines and it passes!
Ryanair have a weight allowance for hand luggage, so I really needed a bag that was a light as possible BEFORE you started to fill it, so as to allow as much luggage as possible. So many cabin bags are heavy already, before you put anything inside them!
The handle pops up well, you have to open the catches yourself but that's no big deal and will take the weight if you lift it by the handle alone. The wheels work well - I've never had any problems pulling it along. It's very large and even I, as a lady, can get enough luggage in for a week's holiday. In fact it's so large that I have been challenged at the boarding gate and asked to place it into the cage - and it passed! The other passengers were asking me where I bought it - it's so impressive!
I love the two pockets on the front for passport/tickets etc.
I would say you need to be gentle with it and treat it with respect as it is lightweight but considering the advantages, it's well worth it. So much so that my partner wants one. Mine is in a plum colour but he wants a black one, which at this price I will treat him to. I might even get one for my daughter too.
Overall I can thoroughly recommend this bag - just treat it with respect and use it for hand luggage only.
