Cabin luggage size
A cabin luggage suitcase is specially designed to take with you on the plane. Thanks to the smaller size, the suitcase does not take up much space and you can take it with ease. The models with wheels and a pull-out handle can be pulled behind you. This costs much less energy than a suitcase that you have to lift. Cabin luggage size suitcases are available in hard shell and soft shell. With a hard shell, your belongings are better protected. With a soft exterior it is easier to put extra things in your suitcase, it is indeed more flexible. Most cabin luggage suitcases, such as the Eastpak Tranzshell, have several compartments with a zipper. The hard shell suitcases are often provided with packing straps. These parts make it easier to organize your case in a convenient way. You can put your clothes on the side of the packing straps while using the small zip pockets for important items. Each product description gives you an overview of the characteristics of each suitcase. Based on that information you can determine which suitcase is the most suitable for you. The maximum size and weight of an aircraft carry-on suitcase varies per airline. Low-cost airlines often apply stricter rules in order to save space and weight. So please check always the rules and restrictions of the airline company before purchasing a cabin luggage suitcase. It is not only the size, but also the weight that is being looked at. Previously you were often allowed to carry more than 10 kilos as cabin luggage, nowadays the maximum weight is often well under 10 kilos.
