Over the past few years I have jetted off on flights all over the world. I have been lucky enough to visit Fiji, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore pre Husband and children. In more recent times around Europe with the latest trip to Crete earlier this year.
Our first trip of the year to Crete was visiting my Mother-In-Laws new Villa, so we opted for cabin bags only. Which was a silly idea really, because I started to panic about sizes of cabin bags that would be suitable for the airline. Did you know that each one has different restrictions on the size and weight of your hand luggage?
When I have previously travelled with a full luggage allowance I have always just taken a handbag on board with me to keep the essentials in. Passports, tickets, money, lipstick, blusher, sweeties. So I have not had to take much notice of hand luggage allowance before.
I did borrow a cabin bag from my sister, which was within the sizes of the luggage allowance for the air line. It wasn’t the prettiest of bags, and I am all about something that looks lovely. It was fine it did the job but wasn’t my first choice of ascetically pleasing luggage.
Cabin Zero Cabin Bags
I had seen Cabin Zero bags over on their Instagram page and really liked the styles. When Cabin Zero got in touch to ask me to review one of their bags, I was more than happy to do so. It will be perfect for our trip to Finland towards the end of the year.
I chose the Lipe Blue ultra light weight cabin bag in the 36litre capacity. I was drawn to the lovely feminine colour, not to much pink but just enough.
Cabin Zero bags all come with a 10 year warranty, but if you ‘like’ their Facebook page it is extended to 25 years, brilliant! They are all airline hand luggage size approved, which is great for any traveller who is going to be flying with various different air lines across the world.
The 36 litre bag is slightly smaller than the classic 44 litre bag. It has lots of fabulous features, it has adjustable straps, both top and side handles so you can just carry it if needed rather than on your back. There is a zip pocket on the front and 2 on the inside, one with a mesh panel which is great for seeing your documents sorted inside.
My 36 litre Cabin Zero bag weighs 700 grams, so it is super light weight so you can fit so much more inside it for your trip. It measures 44x30x20cm perfect for those airline hand luggage restrictions.
I think my favourite feature of this bag is the Okoban built in global tracking system. It gives lifetime tracking for your bag, you just go on line an register and then if your bag is lost or found it can be tracked back to you through Okoban.
I can not wait to head off on our trip towards the end of the year, to take my fabulous Cabin Zero bag with me. As the summer holidays are heading our way quickly I’m sure this bag will get some extra use for everyday things with the children.
