Multi Purpose Cabin Bag UK

Hi All, Iíve recently taken a new position with work that requires travel across the UK and Ireland for 1-2 nights at a time.

Iíve noticed that my current baggage doesnít cut the mustard and after several flights I now know I need something different.

So after trawling the web I need some advice. My requirements are multi purpose so apart from meeting the requirements of BA, Aer Lingus, Flybe, Ryanair etc I am looking for something that can accommodate a laptop in a separate padded pocket, preferably with accessories and also something that also has an easy access pocket to hold your toiletries. All this for a speedy transit through security without having to open the main compartment. In terms of capacity enough for 2 nights away and ideally a pair of shoes too! Apart from that wheels and a handle naturally and if I can get the laptop pocket to detach as a separate bag then great!!!!

Finally Iím on a budget so looking ideally less than GBP150,

Many thanks

Well if you want to purchase only one bag, it will have to meet the allowance of the airline with the smallest size. That's Ryanair (Non-Priority), and it's a tiny 40x20x25cm (though no weight limit) and no personal carry-on. Will you be flying Priority or Non-Priority on Ryanair?

Hi, in fact to be honest I avoid Ryanair normally so perhaps not one to consider at all,

Perhaps the Timbuk2 Copilot can be something you are interesting in. No detachable laptop bag (but that is an extremely rare function in wheeled luggage almost none existing): https://www.timbuk2.com/products/544-copilot-luggage-roller?category=travel-bags&clickId=2734551120&utm_campaign=2-125194&utm_content=2734551120&utm_medium=affiliate &utm_source=21181&utm_term=56878X1338177Xba7331486 d68d0c4bec7623118586f57&variant=12733983064106

But it comes with a very convenient easy access top front pocket for your shoes and toiletries! And has a slim front pocket big enough to store a tablet. However one of the big star functions/selling point of this unusual bag is the easy access top panel compartment where you can store a separate laptop bag that you can take out when needed. Review video here (the compartment where you could store a laptop bag is shown 06.18 time mark:

Available from Amazon UK here:

Notice though it is a surplus bag so this means you maybe not getting the lifetime warranty that Timbuk2 provides when you order from them directly. This is a bit over your budget but I could not find anything less then 150 that comes close to your demands.
