As a budget traveler, whenever I travel, I always carry just a backpack (if I can) because first and foremost, it is easier to move, especially that most of the ‘old’ European cities are big fans of stairs and cobbled streets. It is also a way to avoid queuing at the airport baggage drop off so you can just hop and go. Aside from that, in most budget airlines, you have to purchase your allowance for check-in luggage, which I rather spend in eating local delicacies or paying for a tour.
So it is very fitting when Cabin Zero sent me a 44L Vintage bag to test around. Yes! I am very happy! I got to bring it in my previous trip in the UAE and Hong Kong and I must say it didn’t disappoint.
Here’s a quick run down of what I thought about my Cabin Zero. Also, there is an announcement for a giveaway at the end (yipeee).
I got a gray bag from their 44L Vintage Bag Collection. As most of you might have noticed, I love gray and blue, so a gray one is very fitting for my OOTD ( haha).
I love how stylish it looks. It can pass as a casual bag if not only for its size. There are leather elements around the bag which makes it very trendy aside from the simplicity of the whole design.
You are not limited with this collection. Cabin Zero comes in Vintage (mine), Army, Classic and Camo
SIZE AND COMPARTMENTS
The size is just perfect to bring inside the plane cabin compartment. Although there is a slim chance you will be asked upon boarding/check point, it is still advisable to check the weight (don’t bring more than your check-in limit if you are flying, just to be safe — airports are now very strict with this, I learned my lesson). The good thing about it, the materials used to make a Cabin Zero Bag are all light weight compared to trolleys and other heavy duty backpacks.
It also has several compartments. The front zip sleeve is useful for items you want to access easily. I placed my books and some paper documents there. Inside, you have 1 net pocket and another horizontal zip pocket where I store random stuff like chargers, wires and pens. You also have a back sleeve for your laptop. The main compartment is generous enough for all your clothes ( I say, roll them up to fit perfectly).
I got to use it as well in carrying some of the stuff (aside from traveling) I need. Such as my Surat Journals and power tools.
What's inside your adventure bag? Here's mine. Love my new @cabinzero 44L vintage bag. What I like best is its size (yheap, perfeft for hand carry) and its built in Global Tracker! Plus it is lightweight and very durable. __________________________ Key in the promo code CZKENSURAT to avail 10% discount when you purchase a Cabin Zero bag online. #cabinzero #suratjournals #beachbornph #mycabinzero

Recently I purchased their Cabin Cubes which will help me organize my clothes even more inside my Cabin Zero. I am excited to have them. Will update this post once they arrive.
The bag itself looks very sturdy. From the stitching to its heavy duty lockable zippers. I know a friend who had it checked-in and it survived the whole journey (you know what goes on inside those secret conveyors right?).
What I love about its security features is that, all Cabin Zero bags (including the Cubes) are built with a Global Tracker which is powered by Okoban. This will help you easily locate your bag if it gets lost (which hopefully will not happen).
All in all I am so happy with my Cabin Zero. I have a lot of friends who also use this bag and everyone like it so far.
Do you want to have your own Cabin Zero?
