    Get yourself to Primark!
    Just been shopping for a Ryanair sized Cabin Bag - went to Poundstretcher and as previously stated on this forum they do one for £11.99. Took a tape measure and if you include the wheels it is slightly bigger(nearer 60cm) than 55 * 40 * 20. Also, wasn't too sure of the quality but as its only going to be taken onboard its probably ok.
    Then we popped into Primark on the off chance they might have something - they have one 55*38*20, it looks reasonable quality with good wheels, 2 front pockets and a nice long extending handle(I am tall!). It also expands in size but that would make it more than 20cm. We have loaded it full with everything we need for our week in Fuerteventura and the loaded weight is < 8Kg.

    And the best part......£9 (yes, Nine Pounds!) - now thats a bargain!!!!!

    Have been trawling around for a couple of weeks to maximise hand luggage allowance with Ryanair. We need three new bags (with wheels), so cost was to be kept below the £20 mark. This was more tricky than I thought it would be!!!! Lots of bags well below the 55x40x20, so wasting vital space.

    Went to fill up my car at the local Shell petrol station today before driving to the nearest out of town "outlet", and there was a display of exactly the right size of wheelie cases for £9.99 each.

    Got them home, and they definitely measure 55x40x20! An excellent buy, with telescopic single handle and rubbery wheels. They seem robust enough for hand luggage, nothing special. The make is "Borderline". Just weighed one with my special luggage scales, and the weight is 1.4kg.

    Available in Pink or Black!

    Shell petrol station on Glasgow Road, Edinburgh (next to PC World).

    Just thought I'd let you know....

    The best and probably the cheapest place is Sports Direct.

    They are Dunlop and come in all sizes but the one for airline cabins is £9-99.

    Watch out!
    Just returned from Brindisi.
    At the boarding point Ryanair staff were weighing bags with hand held scales. Anyone over 10 Kgs was given the choice - 40 euro fine or the bag stays.
    Size not an issue
    Too later to check the bag in - Bloodsuckers

    The website states your limit is 10kgs.

    Did you expect them to pat you on the head, smile and say 'Have a nice flight, sir'?

    Based on this advice I went to my local Sports direct store and bought a Dunlop trolley Case 10 ( I belive Sports Direct own the Dunlop brand). Its size is a perfect 51 x 34.5 x 19 cm Its a bit heavy at 3.1kg, the capacity is 33.4 litres. With the expander zip open - this increases capacity by up to a 1/3, I can put my coat and a heavy book for example at the top, and take them out at the check in. Again they say its 50% off for £9.99 - cant go wrong!

    Just realised it comes with a free luggage padlock too!

    But of course now SD have got their sale on, hence the price increase.
  • StaceyAKelly
    hya! You can get the perfect size Dunlop case from Sports Direct (soccer sports) for £7.99. I bought one a couple of years ago and I call it my Ryanair case! Its really hard wearing but great for everything you need for a few days. The only downside is that it weights over 2kg so you lose a couple, but I still usually have weight to spare to bring a few bits home :-).

    Hope this helps xxx

    I just bought some bags specifically for Ryanair flights, they weigh 0.8kg and are the exact size (55 x 40 x 20) and come with an approved sticker on. They were 9.99 each on ebay with £7 P&P for 3 bags combined. Think it was £3 postage per bag. They look like they will hold enough for a weeks holiday. There was a choice of colours, black red and blue and seem sturdy enough. Will report back on how durable they are in a couple of weeks time!

    I can recommend the flylite medium size foldaway. Its the exact dimensions for ryanair, weighs only 800g and is absolutely cavernous when compared to other cases of the same size, having a capacity of 44 litres. It folds away into itself for storage. Have had mine now for quite a few years and its still going strong.
