9 Reasons Why CabinZero Should Be Your Next Ultimate Travel Bag + CabinZero Giveaway

16 October 2017 Baguio, Benguet, Philippines

It seems to me that my wanderlust is incurable and I always find myself globe-trotting every now and then. I've been travelling with my hand-me-down duffel bag for a year since I bought my first airplane ticket. It has been my carry-on travel buddy ever since, but my duffel bag was not enough. In fact, it was arduous. I endured the pain of carrying it for a year on my shoulders. I have been scouring at malls for a cabin luggage and have came across countless choices, and that huge range have had me reaching for some margarita, trying to whittle down my decision.

So I wanted a bag where it's lightweight, carry on cabin sized, and of course, I prefer the ones not on wheels. Since, more and more airlines overcharging for checked bags, trust me, it's worth travelling light to save money.

Picking the ultimate travel bag can be overwhelming, there are so many choices out there, and most of them are not worth the cash. But, how do you figure out which lightweight carry on luggage option is not only worth your hard earned money – but also light and stylish (I mean, who wants to carry an ugly bag?) Ladies and gentlemen, introducing CabinZero bags!

1. Oh-so stylish!

I have two CabinZero bags so far. My first one is the Classic 44L Mysore Red, and my recent one is the Classic 44L Urban Camo. Both bags are the "Classic" ultra-light cabin and travel bag that features large 44 litre capacity, side compression straps, top and side handles, front zipped pocket, inside zipped and mesh pockets. It's thick padded shoulder straps only reinforced additional comfort which I really love.

I like the overall design of both of my bags and it is really perfect for almost any outfit. I can switch between my Mysore Red and my Jungle Camo, depending on my mood. All CabinZero bags are not your typically designed bags, like the ones you see in most of the backpackers. It's contemporary simple, yet stylishly posh that can stand out from the crowd, whilst maintaining its durability.

2. It's ultra light!

All CabinZero bags are light! The classic collection weighs in approximately at 760g only. And you know, there's nothing more worse than traveling with a heavy suitcase. Finally, a bag that won't weigh you down on your travels.

3. Built in Global Luggage Tacker

There's nothing more infuriating when you lost your bag. Well, you don't want that to happen do you? Fret not, CabinZero bags have built in lost and found tags so it can be traced backed to you in the event it is lost or worst stolen. The built-in tracker is also secured directly into the Airline's own baggage tracing system. You just need to register the tag online with Okoban.com as soon as you receive the bag. Your bag is then protected by this lost and found system Cool huh?

4. It has a sturdy and lockable zipper

You don't want a thief to ransack through your bag, especially if you've got valuables in it. I know how you've been wanting a thief-proof bag. Well, one of the best feature I love about CabinZero bags is that it has a lockable zipper. I would just bolt my luggage lock and voila!

Plus, CabinZero bags doesn't use an ordinary zipper. And I know how you hate having a broken zipper? Teeth that break. Pulls that pop. Herky-jerky sliding and irreparable lockups. One zipper gone wrong can render an entire bag unusable. Thus consistent quality is a must, that's why CabinZero use YKK Zippers throughout.

5. It's durable!

All the materials and other hardware used to make all  CabinZero bags are heavy-duty. My Mysore Red bag has gone through thunderstorms, a horrible tumble down from a suitcase hold and having to keep up with my walking speed. So far, it's been very good and no damage can be seen.

Folks at CabinZero attested to its durable quality and that's why they offer a standard 10 year warranty and it is up-gradable  to 25 years free of charge in all of their bags.

6. It's waterproof

One of the things why I love CabinZero so much is because their bags as made with their own customized waterproof material. Of course, no body wants their stuff to get wet. This doesn't necessarily mean that the bag itself is 100 percent waterproof, but it has a high level of water resistance and repellancy. Trust me, I was walking down on a gritty street of Manila one day, and it was pouring so hard. I thought all my stuffs are wet, but as I checked it out, it didn't not even a single stuff is wet. Way to go CabinZero!

7. Carry-on size

With more and more airlines charging for checked bags, it's worth travelling light to save money. It is a wise decision to escape baggage fees and go hand luggage only. I personally don't like checking in my luggages and would rather save my money to travel. CabinZero bag is just like that. Not only CabinZero bags are cool, but they are perfectly cabin sized.

True to its name, at 55 x 40 x 20 cm (weight 760g) the CabinZero is designed to give you the maximum possible space while remaining within the luggage allowances of all majority of airlines carry on dimensions.

8. Spacious Capacity

Not only CabinZero bags perfectly cabin-sized but they are surprisingly spacious too. Their 44L capacity bags allows you to fit everything you'll need on your travels. If you are planning a carry-on all the way, you need to be careful; keeping in mind the maximum carry-on weight of the airline you will take.

9. Its versatile functionality

CabinZero has one outer, easy accessible pocket - perfect for whipping out a book, passport, and travel information without having to open your entire luggage open. The main compartment opens almost right up, like a suitcase, making packing and unpacking easy-peasy. There's a mesh pocket in the inside of the 'lid', and a second smaller compartment just below the mesh pocket. I usually store my valuables in there so they don’t get crushed.  It has external compressions straps, a carrying handle on the side, and an over-the-shoulder strap. Its rucksack straps on the sides can be unclipped and zipped away. I personally like stashing my travel blanket on its side straps.

The Verdict

I wanted a bag that would allow me to travel without checking in a hold bag. Its overall design is cool and I love the way the CabinZero completely opens up like a suitcase. It enabled me to avoid charges and save money on flights all over the world. With its carry-on dimensions and spacious capacity, it can easily house my laptop, clothes, beauty kit, and books for a two week trip. Being durable enough to squeeze to any luggage bin is a big bonus. It is so far the best travel backpack I have.

The CabinZero folks certainly knows how to provide high quality and durability, with tons of features and quality.

  1. This looks like a great bag. I especially like that it is light, the last thing you need when flying is a heavy bag.

  4. I love traveling with a carryon only (c'mon, who wants to pay for check-in luggage?), and I love backpacks for that since they're very easy to haul around and I can be very nimble with my luggage on my back as opposed to dragging it along if it were wheeled luggage. That said, I would have preferred if it had a hip belt, but I can understand that adding that adds weight too
