The Ryanair 'Priority & 2 Cabin Bags' option states  that the allowance is a "Small personal bag (40x20x25cms) and 10kg wheelie bag (55x40x20cm)" Is it mandatory that the 10Kg bag is a wheelie type? My wife and I bought CabinZero 44L fabric bags for use with another airline and would like to use these - they are a boxy rucksack type that fits within the Ryanair size limit when packed.

Does anyone have actual experience of taking an alternative bag type? We don't want to arrive at the airport only to be faced with difficulties and excess charges, and would like to avoid having to buy additional luggage.

    I've never flown Ryanair, but I wouldn't expect them to insist on wheels. As long as it fits inside the size guide cage thing and you can lift it into the overhead locker it will probably be fine.

    No, you don't need to take a wheelie type bag.

    You could pack your stuff in an ASDA bag-for-life carrier bag for all they care.

    Just don't exceed the maximum weight and size stipulated.
