Cabin Case & Cabin Luggage Recommendations
If you are taking a short-haul flight then you might want to minimise hassle at the airport and only take a cabin case or carry on bag. Here are some of our favourites:
If you are travelling with British Airways or easyJet, or any airline that gives a cabin case allowance of 56x45x25cm, then this is the best cabin case we can recommend. The Spark collection is a workhorse and been part of Samsonite for a number of years. This case has a huge capacity (you can quite easily take this for a week away in the Summer), it is lightweight and has 4 wheels. The exterior pockets are big enough to store a tablet and your travel documents as well as being lockable thanks to the security cable that locks into the TSA combination lock. Buy it here.
If you’re looking for a sharp-looking cabin case (both exterior and interior) then Ted Baker’s ‘Albany’ is perfect. Our favourite colour is the Black with Rose Gold detailing. There is an external pocket for storage of passport and other travel documents and your tablet. The bespoke interior lining is classic Ted Baker with the beautiful butterfly design. They’ve also included garment protector cross straps to minimise the creases on your clothes. This cabin case has a luxury feel, as you’d expect from Ted Baker. Buy it here.
X’Blade has a great reputation and this cabin case ideal for both leisure and business. In having 2 wheels this case offers more capacity that 4-wheel cases with the same dimensions and we love the top pocket that provides easy access to travel documents and toiletry bags when travelling through the airport. There is also a USB port, a laundry bag and features Samsonite’s new compression system to keep your clothes as wrinkle-free as possible. Buy it here.
Ulisse is a great value range from one the world’ premier luxury luggage manufacturers, Bric’s. There are 2 Ulisse cabin cases (expandable and non-expandable) and come in a great selection of fun colours. There is a USB port so you can keep your devices charged and the wheels are rubber coated to keep them quiet as they roll along. The interior has 2 main compartments to keep your things nice and tidy. Bric’s have put their world-renowned craftsmanship into a case that is affordable to many travellers and could be the start of a long lasting love affair with Bric’s! Buy it here.
We love this cabin case because only the most daring would use it! Made by Venice based company, Crash Baggage, this transparent case is not only transparent, but comes pre-dented! It is made from lightweight and durable Makrolon Polycarbonate and comes with a removable laundry bag to hide your dirty clothes. A very unique cabin case that will get plenty of double takes from fellow travellers! Buy it here.
