Worlds Lightest Suitcase Part 2

Lightweight Suitcases go head-to-head in the search to find the worlds lightest suitcase. The next two contenders are the Cabin Max Lyon and the 5 Cities Lightweight Expandable.


  • Cabin Max Lyon Trolley Backpack is a convenient wheeled bag for any type of travel. Just unzip the back section which covers the wheels and backpack straps are revealed
  • Combines the maximum size allowed for travel with an abundance of practical features
  • At a massive 44L with dimensions 55 x 40 x 20 cm including wheels it is still extremely lightweight at 1.7KG
  • Featuring a main compartment for the bulk of your luggage plus a front pocket with dividers ideal for travel documents, camera, mp3 player mobile phone etc.
  • Featuring 600D water resistant anti tear material and heavy duty lockable zips more

The Cabin Max Lyon weighs 1.7kg.  Inside there’s 44 litres of space for all those holiday outfits. This gives a weight for size figure of 39 g/L.

Buyers liked the good quality and low price of this suitcase. The advertised dimension of this product however are up for debate. Some customers have measured this suitcase at 60cm rather than 55cm and 22cm rather than 20cm.  A bigger bag for your money certainly. But it exceeded the carry on dimensions they were looking  for.  Others measured theirs and found the sizes accurate.

The Cabin Max is big enough to hold a weeks worth of travel clothes provided you pack like a pro. It has pockets inside and outside at the front useful for holding travel documents.

The advantage of this case is that it also doubles as a backpack. The backpack straps are conveniently stored in a zippered section in the back.

Another very practical aspect is that it folds almost flat when not in use. You’re not going to get that with your shiny hard shell suitcase.

So how did buyers rate the Cabin Max? 33% liked it and 48% loved it. That’s an 81% positive rating.
