Ryanair personal item size: 6 perfect Ryanair 40x20x25 bags

Ryanair personal item size: 6 perfect Ryanair 40x20x25 bags

If you’re flying with Ryanair, everyone gets a 40x20x25cm item of luggage you can take on board at no extra fee.

It doesn’t matter what luggage you’ve paid for (if any!) Every passenger gets a Ryanair personal item size bag which is 40cm x 20cm x 25cm.

This bag needs to fit under the seat in front of you and shouldn’t really go in the overhead lockers (unless the plane is really quiet and there’s plenty of space!)

Whether you’re hoping to squeeze everything you need for your whole trip into your personal item size bag (which is definitely possible for short breaks!) or you’re just using it for the few bits and bobs you’ll want to access during your flight, here are some great 40x20x25 bags suitable for the Ryanair ‘free’ personal bag.

The Travel Hack Backpack

Cabin Max Travel Hack Travel Bags for Women | Ryanair Cabin Bags 40x20x25 | Laptop Backpack - Black
  • A fashionable and space-saving womens Travel Backpack cabin size which fits under the seat. It can hold laptops up to 13", serving as a convenient option for weekend trips too.
  • Features an easy access top pocket for purses, sun glasses, phones and travel documents.
  • Fits the Ryanair 40x20x25cm' free' underseat hand luggage rules. Flies for free on all other known airlines. Lightweight design weighs just 0.6kg.

The original and the best in my personal opinion! The Travel Hack Backpack is perfectly sized for the Ryanair 40x20x25 bag. It’s surprisingly roomy with handy pockets to organise your belongings and ensure you can find everything you need during stressful airport encounters.

It’s also a great bag to use once you reach your destination and need a ‘day bag’ for busy days out and about.

It has:

  • A spacious main compartment
  • Internal mesh pockets to separate and organise belongings
  • Two water bottle holders
  • A slim front pocket that is perfect for your passport and documents
  • A padded laptop pocket at the back (can double up as an anti theft pocket when you arrive)
  • A top pocket for smaller items like your phone and keys
  • Ideal for use as a day bag when you arrive

  • The 20L Anode is ideal as extra hand luggage and is an ideal case for electronics, toiletries, make up, cosmetics and travel accessories. The hard shell exterior provides a tough protective shell.
  • Easy to carry top handle or use the adjustable padded shoulder strap. Rear trolley strap for easy attchement to larger rolling trolley luggage, fits perfectly with the Cabin Max Anode 40L
  • 40x20x25 cm Sized to fit the maximum Ryanair under the seat free hand luggage allowance.

This is a new one from Cabin Max and I absolutely love it. 

This 40x20x25 vanity case is essentially a miniature hard-shell suitcase without wheels. It’s very cute and if you have paid for a larger carry on suitcase then it teams up nicely with the matching Anode Cabin Case.

If you prefer to roll your Ryanair personal sized item then I highly recommend the Cabin Max Narvik 20L. This tiny suitcase has lots of handy pockets so you can keep everything organised and easily access your necessities during the flight.

It might seem unnecessary to have wheels for such a small bag but I often find that even a small personal item can get heavy, especially when I’ve got my laptop and travel toiletries in there. There’s a lot of standing around at the airport and potentially lots of walking too, so if you want to save your back, this is the bag for you!

I love this adjustable tote bag as it can be the perfect size for the Ryanair personal item size bit it can be expanded so it’s slightly bigger for the easyJet personal item size!

It’s ideal if you regularly fly with different airlines and especially good if you’re flying out with one airline and back with another.

It comes in black and some gorgeous pastel colours and the water-repellent material is hard-wearing and looks great. There’s also an internal wet pocket which is great for toiletries.
