I think that it’s been years since I have last checked in a bag in the hold when taking a flight. Recently, after having all that trouble when the airline lost my luggage on my way to Cuba and only managed to find it two months after, I’ve learned how to do long term traveling with only a carry-on as well.
I have tried several bags and backpacks during these few years and today I want to tell you about Cabin Zero, one of the best travel bags that I came across recently.
What makes Cabin Zero special is the size which will fit the majority of airlines carry on dimensions, making it the perfect companion to bring on a flight, even on Ryanair and EasyJet! Weighing only 760grams, Cabin Zero is so spacious that I always manage to have extra space after I finish packing.
Cabin Zero is made with strong, durable materials, it has thick padded shoulder straps and lockable zippers. It also comes with a built in global tracker (in case you lose your bag or the airline misplaces it). The Okoban tracker is integrated into World Tracer, the central lost and found system used by over 400 airlines. The bag also comes with a 25 years warranty, if you simply like their Facebook Page.
My experience with Cabin Zero
I am someone who travels a lot and because I work remotely I need to be able to fit in my luggage my entire “office”, which at the moment takes a lot of space because of my old lappy who is not working without a cooler underneath.
Cabin Zero has a dedicated pocket for laptops which nicely fits the cooler as well. The padding on the back provides a soft protection layer toward bumps and the pocket on the front is perfect for the charger, mouse, and headphones.
Even if it’s quite compact, I love that there is an extra pocket in front of the bag, where I usually store my password and my boarding pass, for easy access.
It also has two interior pockets, one zipped and one mesh, for those extra chargers that don’t go into any packing cube and to which you need quick access.
Space, space, space
A lot of things fit into a 44L bag! Just to give you an idea, I usually pack my 15” laptop, its cooler (double the thickness), my DSLR, clothes, and toiletries for a week, my makeup bag and a pair of shoes. They all fit!
Bright and colourful
What I really love about my Cabin Zero is the beautiful orange colour. A security agent once told me, “you will never ever lose your bag!”, and he was so right. If I would have to check it in I would spot it as soon as it will enter the baggage hall on the conveyor belt.
Carry it as you like best
I carry the bag on my shoulders, as a backpack, but it also has a side and a top handle, if you prefer to hold it in your hands. I love that it opens like a suitcase because it’s so easy to arrange my packing cubes inside it.
The padded straps are very comfortable to wear. If Cabin Zero would have waist straps as well I would definitely make it my main bag for long haul travels.
I have taken Cabin Zero with me on several planes and it always fit the overhead compartment. A couple of months ago, when I flew to Northern Ireland for the Game of Thrones tour, I even managed to fit my bag in the tiny overhead space of an Embraer propeller plane!
It’s 100% British and they ship worldwide
“Leo” is an avid traveller who spent his after uni years traveling back and forth to India and created Cabin Zero from his own need of a durable, hassle free bag. What does Cabin Zero actually mean, you might wonder? Cabin Sized = Zero Hassles!
