CabinZero bags have lost and found tags built in. This ensures your bag is able to be traced back to you in the event it is lost (or even stolen). The system is also linked directly into the Airline's own baggage tracing system. You just need to register the tag online with as soon as you receive the bag. Your bag then has lifetime protection using this lost and found system.



We use YKK Zippers throughout. Why? These are simply the best zippers in their class. Our zippers are designed to be lockable for added security (lock not included).

Sons university bag

Great quality and good size to carry a large laptop for his media course. Also add it carried two weeks of washing home and back without problems!

For the dynamic Traveler

stuck with a job in cork, IE. frequent travel to cologne/ home. lots of busses, trains, flights needed each way. cabin zero takes the stress and discomfort out of these grueling journeys. solid materials, zippers, seams. Comfortable to wear and TONS OF SPACE. Perfect for RyanAir overhead, too big for long distance busses, unless you have two seats. Size enough for food, clothing, toiletry for 3 days. Smaller size would suffice for weekend trips.

Perfect size and comfort at little weight

Was looking at the original and the Pro but landed on this as the perfect compromise between weight and comfort. Went for the Orange Chill, love the color. It’s really comfy, you can fit a lot in it and it works as cabin bag with all airlines I travel with. Only wish there was a smaller pocket available from outside. For passport, keys and such. But overall great bag!

Bigger than I Expected

The bag is bigger than I expected. What I like that it has a minimalist look and the straps are not dangling which I hope my other backpack would have. I am yet to try it in a backpacking trip this summer but glad that I can fit all my stuff in a one sturdy, minimalist-looking bag.

Already looking to by more

Bought as a birthday present for my boyfriend. Arrived in 2 days! He loved it, and is super pleased with space and the amount of handles. Only reason for 4 starts is the lack of the shoulder strap and can't even buy it separately. Apart from that is a 5star. I don't really need a new bag but I'm so so jealous. Is so beautifully made!! Have an eye in two others to offer my parents in the future!

great stuff

This is by far the nicest backpack I’ve ever had: beautiful style, crafted to last for years. Just perfect.

Good value, comfortable and quality design

I bought from Cabin Zero because I knew the bag would fit the airlines i regularly fly with. It’s comfortable to wear, plenty of space and good quality. It’s also nice and simple - when there are too many pockets and zips I forget where i’ve put things!


Well made backpack!

I am glad that i have chosen 42L size instead of 32L. It does not look too big even for me being only 5’3” tall, The bag is made very well. I have always been looking for a backpack with simple design. I hope it has a pocket below the mesh one inside as well though so i can keep more small stuff. But overall i like it and i look forward to using it in my next business trip.
