She’s finally back with a travel post!
I’ve missed talking travel, it really is where my heart lies and I’ve been scratching to post another one, so today I am sharing something I believe any travel bug or adventure junkie needs in their life.
Packing – the bane of my existence. Wanting to take everything you own whilst not going over any weight limits or giving yourself chronic back pain is pretty tough. When I went on camps, hikes or abroad I’d spend ages playing a pretty naff game of Tetris trying to get everything in. And although I don’t think I will ever be able to fit all of my belongings into one bag – my life just got a bit more easier.
I give you, my CabinZero bag. This is their classic 44L ultra light cabin bag, and in classic Em style, she chose the really practical colour white. It’s my aesthetic okay. It weights approximately 760 grams so is super lightweight and isn’t bulky on your back. Its made of waterproof polyester and has a lining so there’s no worrying about your things getting damaged or wet too. The dimensions are 55 x 40 x 20 cm so is actually airline carry-on approved with most airlines which definitely sold me, this bag will be perfect for my trip to Greece in a few months and is generally the perfect carry on bag. This also means its the perfect sized bag for any situation, whether it be hikes, camping, going abroad or even festivals which are coming around soon!
The features of the bag itself: CabinZero bags are known as ‘the suitcase on your back’ and, it really is. There is two large padded shoulder straps so you can carry it on your back, which is my personal choice of carrying it. It also has side compression straps, top and side handles – so you’re not limited for ways to carry it! And these many handles and straps aren’t bulky nor do they get in the way at all. The bag has a front zipped pocket and an inside zipped and mesh pocket, to make sure all those small things are in a safe place and things you may need quickly, for instance a map, can be quickly retrieved from the front pocket on the outside, a small but important feature. The zips are also lockable if you wanted to keep your things extra safe (lock not included).
The additional features to this bag include: a built in Global Luggage Tracker, powered by Okoban, something I had never heard of, but it means your luggage shouldn’t get lost! There’s a 10 years warranty which can be upgraded to 25 years just by liking them on Facebook which is crazy generous.
So, my thoughts. If you haven’t guessed already I loveeee this bag! Not only does it fulfil my whole aesthetic and make me want to take 1000 Instagrams, it is actually an amazing bag. I took it on a hike to test it out and not once did my shoulders get achy or did the straps feel like they were rubbing. And the bag is so lightweight and easy to carry. Having many straps meant it was really easy for me to pick it up and go when on the go, there was none of this having-to-wait-whilst-you-put-your-bag-on funny business which with my regular rucksack there’s a lot of. The side compression straps meant, even when the bag wasn’t completely full, everything was tight and not moving around and hitting into things. And I had taken a very old camera with me which needed to be kept safe, and it was – 10 points to CabinZero. I love a bag with pockets, so this was perfect for me, as I have loads of little bits that I want to keep safe and easily accessible.
All in all, every traveller, however big or small needs this bag. They also do a 28L bag if you didn’t want something this big and they also do vintage and military style bags to suit everyone and every situation. My bag prices at £60, which you may think is expensive, but for a decent rucksack or suitcase you’re looking at paying just as much if not more – and with this you have both! I honestly believe it’s so worth the money and I cannot wait to take it on more adventures. And, if you’d like to get your own cabin bag, you can use the code CZEMILYYBECCA to get 10% off!
