Cabin Max Luggage Develops
Welcome to the new Cabin Max blog. The Cabin Max is a relatively new brand (just over one 1/2 yrs old) that was developed to fill a gap in the air travel market. About 2 years ago I was looking for a backpack that would fit the max size for a Ryan Air flight. As I was only going for a weekend I didn’t want or need to check anything in. I noticed that a lot of the luggage available was wheeled trolleys and quite heavy 3- 4kg , thus making it difficult to fill and remain below the 10kg limit. Everything else was either to big or to small. The development of the Cabin Max bag began with a couple of requirements. Lightweight, strong, good value and convenient.
After 6 Months of development the first samples were ready, and I was eager to test it out and escape the greyness of a UK winter, onto Ryan Air I went (known to be toughest for cabin bag size and weight restrictions) and off to find some winter sun. I had no problems, and although the bag was bulging with all my gear the side tightening straps had done their job to help me get it into the size limit box most of the no frills flights use. I knew we were onto a winner seeing all the other passengers different shaped bags, with seemingly none of them designed to fit the maximum size allowed 55x40x20cm. With the bag also been a lightweight 850g I could fill it without worrying about going over the 10kg limit. (Which can be very costly £20 per Kg – Ryanair)
“Ryanair continues to encourage passengers to travel light by leaving checked-in bags at home and taking advantage of our free 10kg carry-on allowance,” said a spokesperson for the no-frills airline.
Since that time we have sold 000’s of these bags to very happy customers from all over the UK. Check out some customer feedback on Amazon. We have also recently found success selling to the German and US market. The product is being constantly updated and improved with recent improvements in the material making it shower proof. We would welcome your suggestions to make it even better, or develop new products.
