Firstly, I would say this is a good quality case for a low price and well worth the money, I would happily buy another.
I would like to mention however that I believe the description to be somewhat misleading. If you measure the bag from the floor to the top of the handle it actually measures closer to 60cm than the 55cm stated in the advert, unfortunately this technically makes it too large to take on-board some of the budget airlines as carry on luggage. I say technically as I wonder how may airlines would prevent you taking it on for this reason but that's besides the point.
My solution was to remove the handle completely and to use a strap looped around the grab handle just in front to wheel the case, not ideal but it serves the purpose, is relatively discrete and prevents any chance of me having to pay the dreaded surcharge!
I hope this helps someone.
All the best
We were unsure of this bag due to the reviews about the size. Yes up to the top of the handle it is 60cm. We decided to take a chance and bought 2 of them. We have now flown 4 times with the bags- twice on Ryanair and twice on Easyjet. We did not have any problems with either airline not allowing us on with them.However if they asked you at the gate to put your case into the measuring cage I'm not sure how that would go. The bags themselves don't look huge and fitted in the overhead lockers no problems.
The bags are also nice and light and held enough for 4 days. We used it as a rucksack when the wheels didn't cope with the cobble streets in parts of Rome and they were comfortable to wear. We plan to take them away with us on a weeks holiday later on in the year. I liked all the internal pockets- ideal for tickets etc. Overall good buy.
I agree with the previous reviewers that this is a really good bag for the price but it is 5 or 6cms too long. I have managed to get round this fairly easily by cutting 5cms off the length of the pull-along pole.
METHOD: I undid the zip on the internal lining to expose the pole, at the opposite end to the handle just one screw is securing the metal pole into the plastic bracket. I removed the screw and pulled out the pole (IMPORTANT: If you try this WEAR GLOVES as the end of the pole has sharp edges - I learnt the hard way and my bag has now been personalised with a little of my own DNA). With a good hacksaw, I sawed 5 or 6 cms off the end of the pole. I replaced the pole and marked where the hole for the screw should go. I pulled out the pole and drilled the hole. It might have been easier to drill in situ. I replaced the pole and secured with the screw. Voila, my case is now the right length.
