Hand Luggage Review: Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack – The Good News
The Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack is suitable for 95 out of 131 airlines we researched that fly in and out of UK airports including British Airways, easyJet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Thomson and Monarch, giving you confidence to buy this bag and use across a range of different airlines.
The Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack has 9 pouches in all, including a specially desgined padded pouch for a 17″ laptop, so it doesn’t get superficial scrates or bumps as you place the hand luggage in the overhead cabin bins. There is a pouch in the front for easy access to documents such as passports, tickets and foregin currency.
The material and manufacture seem to be durable but unlike other pieces of hand luggage there is no manufacturers warranty to back this up.
Because it is a backpack, it has no cumbersome and heavy wheels and trolley system, so it is ight weight at under a kilogram, meaning it is well below the hand luggage weight allowance of even the stingiest airline. It can also collapse into a very small space when not being used.
Reviewers comment on the large capacity available within the bag, again due to the fact that there is no trolley system that needs to be accomodated into the bag.
Hand Luggage Review: Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack – The Bad News
The Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack is not the most stylish of hand luggage, and is currently only available in black.
Despite claims that it manufactured using a durable black fabric, there is no manufacturer’s warranty unlike the Revelation by Antler which we reviewed earlier this month.
Although the Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack is suitable for a large number of the airlines that fly in and out of UK airports, it is unfortunately not suitable for Virgin Atlantic.
One thing to consider with a fabric bag which doesn’t have a rigid structure to it, is that it can be overfilled which may mean that the stated dimensions may be exceed, so pack within the limits of the bag or you may exceed the hand luggage allowances and have to pay a charge.
Hand Luggage Review: Revelation By Antler – Overall
Overall, the Dussel Professional Cabin Backpack scores 4 stars out of 5 because it is light and fits a large percentage of the airlines flying in and out of the UK; has a large number of pockets and also a large internal capacity. What would improve it would be a range of colours and also manufacturers warranty.
