Detailed Review of the Cabin Max Backpack Approved Carry-On Bag
This carry on sized backpack has a capacity of 20 litres, which is high for a bag of this size. The extra capacity comes from the lightweight build, and not having dead space in the design. Dimensions fit the guidelines of all the airlines for carry-on luggage (even strict ones like Ryanair and EasyJet). This is 40cm x 20cm x25cm. It is compact enough to fit in front of the seat in front of you on the plane – and of course will fit in the overhead lockers.
What surprised me about the Cabin Max backpack is the weight. This is just 500 grams in total. It is made of coated polyester, which will resist splashes / the odd rain shower – though is not completely waterproof.
You’ll get to choose from a lot of different colour options. Some of the options have designs like a world map on them – or a collection of flags. There are 35 different combos, you can see big versions of each picture by scrolling over them on the amazon.co.uk product page. Note that only the initial picture (the black one) shows a gallery with the inside views.
There are zipped main compartments, accessed separately from the outside. There are also internal compartments, two of them are zipped, and pocket space too. Finally, you get padded shoulder straps for comfortable carrying.
What Previous Buyers Said About this Cabin Max Luggage?
Overall the comments are hugely positive. With more than 2800 comments at the time of writing, any major issues would be well and truly out in the open by now.
One theme which appeared, is that some people went back to buy more of these cabin bags after their had their first one. Other positives include people that are surprised that the overall carrying capacity is bigger than they expected. There have been no issues with size and airlines stopping this bag from going onboard.
Checking the negatives, there are a few people commenting that the quality was not what they expected. For this price point, I’m really not sure what they might have been expecting – especially since other commenters thought the quality was good. There are also some 1-star ratings for damaged goods. This is completely fair, though only a tiny percentage of the total. These bags have a 3 year guarantee.
Wrap Up: How Does the Ryanair / EasyJet Safe Backpack from Cabin Max Compare?
