What Size & Weight Should Hand Luggage Be?

Cabin bags, carry-ons and hand luggage – aka the bags you carry on with you when you board the plane – tend to have different restrictions based on the airline you’re flying with. While the combined weight of your bags tends to sit around the 10kg mark, the dimensions vary pretty much everywhere. Although, on average, smaller hand luggage items measure around 40 x 30 x 10cm while bigger bags can go up to 55 x 35 x 25cm.

Brown leather holdall

Brunello Cucinelli

Leather Holdall, £4,750


Size: 35 x 65 x 31cm

This classic holdall is made with soft, durable leather ideal for those who like old-school appeal. It has all the style of a carry-on, but the functionality of a suitcase – with a retractable handle, metal feet and swivel wheels for navigating busy airports.

Green crossbody bag


Stealth Sling, £140


Size: 22.9 x 54.6 x 15.2cm

Packing light? While this crossbody sling from Patagonia doesn’t look like it would hold much, note that it is, in fact, deceptively small. It’s water-resistant, has multiple compartments inside and can be slung over your shoulder for hands-free carrying.

Yellow suitcase

Size: 55 x 37 x 23cm

With BRICS’s vibrant range of suitcases, you’ll be pressed to lose your carry-on throughout your holiday. The cabin spinner has a hard shell (great for any turbulence) as well an expandable feature so you can squeeze in any extra bits you pick up at duty free.

Carry-on with art print on the front

Red suitcase


Spinner (4 wheels), £179


Size: 40 x 55 x 20cm

This super lightweight carry-on case is as secure as luggage can get, with a three-point locking system designed to keep your valuables safe. The Essens line of cases are also made with recycled materials, with the shell alone matching the equivalent of 230 yoghurt 4g cups.
