This case is a soft shell case that has dimensions that are suitable for hand luggage on flights that have reduced dimensions permitted (i.e. Easyjet and Ryanair). The cases dimensions are 49 cm x 34 cm x 18 cm and so it is a small and compact case, but it does have a 30L capacity and so I was surprised how much I could actually fit in tot the case. All of the packing is down on one side of the case (i.e. it is not a split case), but there are four internal pockets on the lid, and two external pockets also. The pockets are a decent enough size to be able to fit useful stuff in it - for example, I tend to pack leads and plugs in one pocket, travel documents in another pocket, my camera etc. in another pocket. The pockets on the outside are zippable, whereas the ones on the inside are netted and are elasticised rather than zipped. The outside material is splash-proof and so it's fine in all weathers and while there are different patterns, I have a bright pink case which makes my case easily identifiable.
I travel a fair bit and when I'm going away for a week or less then I try to use a suitcase that allows me to take hand luggage only. The case I tend to use when I want to use hand luggage only is my Sub Zero G Luggage Trolley Suitcase. When I bought it I bought it from the Enekes Shop in Cheltenham which cost me only £36.00, but it is currently being sold in Argos for the increased price of £49.99. I do think this is a really good price for a small suitcase, and while there were suitcases i would prefer to have for hand luggage, this case was the best within the price range I was looking at when I bought it.
One of the big selling points about this case is that apparently it is the worlds lightest case. It is certainly a very light case, weighting about 1.5kg and so obviously this makes moving it and lifting it especially easy. The suitcase does have a handle, but I tend not to use this except for going up stairs, as this is a trolley case and so it is much easier to simply pull it. There are only two wheels and while I prefer four wheels which allow more flexibility when moving the case, the case does move easily and the wheels do not stick. There is a retractable pulling handle which is at a good height and can be adjusted according to preference.There is a five year manufacturers guarantee - although I actually believe it will last considerably longer than that. Although it is so lightweight, it does feel robust and that it can put up with the normal strains of travelling. There is not a lock included, but a lock can be attached to the zips for security.
Overall, I think this is a really good case and I will continue to use if for short trips. I recommend this for anyone looking at taking a suitcase for hand luggage.
