I ordered this bag as it is exactly the right size for Ryanair flight allowance for hand luggage. There are alot of other cabin bags on the market but this one is really light, has wheels and is 2 cm smaller than the rack you have to try to stuff your bag into at the airport. The other ones i have looked at are either too small so it isnt worth packing anything or too heavy. If, like me, you like to travel light, it is perfect. It even comes with a lock and keys.

Good quality material and lined well too. Very happy with this product.

It also arrived the following day, despite ordering it only the afternoon of the day before.

I am not one for writing extremely negative reviews but I think people should know what they are buying. I used this bag on 2 occasions in the summer, on my way back from the second trip the side handle had fell off, the stitches on the inner lining had came off as well! Fortunately or so I thought the bag comes with a 3 year warranty - I contacted Karabar directly and after numerous e-mails they refuse to honour the warranty, they say I should have contacted them within 6 months, this information does not come with the bag and is not displayed on their website (please feel free to check). I purchased my bag in September 2013 so I had one for short flights when needed, it sat in my cupboard until July and August 2014 when I actually used it. Karabar offer a voucher to use on their website which was no use as they charge more than I paid on Amazon, do not have the colour I previously chose and as I informed them if it cannot last 2 trips how will it ever last 3 years?

I would encourage everybody to look elsewhere for a cheap suitcase, their are much better alternatives than this out there

Good for the job. Goes under seat. Extendable bar goes through middle of bag but not a big problem. Just right.

This bag is known as "Borderline" or "Aerolite" Cabin Approved Ultra Lightweight Luggage Bag, mine being the former - it's exactly as pictured on Amazon.

I purchase this bag for a short excursion to Holland unlike many of the reviewers here who brought the bag for a plane journey as it is cabin approved for many airlines including Ryanair.

The bag itself survived Train > Tube > Ferry > Train > Train > Amsterdam and back again. Each part of the trip involved much lifting of some sort, either onto a luggage rack on the train or up multiple stairs on the ferry or being dragged along the cobbled streets of Amsterdam. I carried the bag by the top handle, side handle and also trolley style and it's survived the journey without any damage - It did the job!

As mentioned in reviews, there are negative aspects to the bag; it doesn't stand in an upright position so will need constant support, small plastic wheels so it's very noisy on roads and pavements, a single telescopic pull handle which feels lightweight and is exposed inside and no inside straps for your clothes. If you are looking for luggage to survive you for many years to come and constant heavy lifting at airports, then look elsewhere - you should be looking a leather material or samsonlite type luggage.

I think the capacity is listed wrong as according to the manufacturer - it is expandable up to 41 litres as structure of the bag is collapsible so it is useful if you are planning to bring back more than you take with you.

The price of the trolley depending on when and where you purchased it, is approx £12-£20 which makes it one of the cheapest wheel luggage case available. If you are looking for a HQ trolley especially if you're a regular traveller then you should be looking elsewhere where you should be be spending £40+, however if you are in the market for a good value bag, then this bag is more than suitable - You get what you pay for!

Excellent product. Much more roomy than you imagine and the soft case means you can fit more in :). Fits perfectly and easily into any overhead storage - even on EasyJet or RyanAir, the pickier of the airlines!

The extendible handle and wheels mean you can pull this along easily. Would recommend this as a 'Best Buy'.

I purchased this small suitcase (plain black, not patterned as in the photograph at time of writing) for a four day holiday - everything else I had was either too big or too small. I needed it in a hurry, which meant that I had to get something that qualified for Amazon Prime (i.e. next working day delivery). That requirement limited the choices.

When this arrived in its Amazon box I was astonished by how light it was. Even full of clothes, a couple of books and a pair of trainers, it really is very lightweight.

Made in soft rucksack-type fabric, it is more appropriate for taking onto a plane as hand luggage or throwing into the back of the car than putting in the cargo hold of a plane, where the light fabric might be easily damaged.

Instead of flipping along the long side, the top of the suitcase opens along the bottom edge of the suitcase, where the wheels are. There is a thin lining inside, that attaches with velcro.

It is surprisingly roomy. I was a bit disappointed when I first saw it, thinking that it would be difficult to cram everything in, but it took far more than I though it would - including three jumpers, two t-shirts, three pairs of jeans, a pair of trainers and the usual night-wear, socks, underwear and odds and ends including a couple of books.

There's a pocket in the front, which is closed with a zipper. It's the sort of size that is useful for travel documents etc but nowhere near big enough, for example, for a laptop.

If you keep heavy stuff to the back of suitcase (i.e. the bottom when it's lying flat on its back) it may, if you are very lucky, stand up on its wheels and its two base studs.
