Cabin Baggage

I was quite astonished by the amount of large hand baggage on the flight home yesterday. Despite its size, it presumably fell within the 55cm x 40cm x 20cm limit and weight limit, too.

In my experience, cabin trolley cases can still weigh five or more kilograms before any items are packed.

I have a very light and robust holdall which measures about 46cm x 32cm x 20cm. It is very light indeed and could take a lot of clothing.

It was as cheap as chips at the time. Trolley cabin luggage with bells and whistles can be expensive and weigh almost as much as their contents.

I am minded to use the holdall the next time I holiday abroad.
