For the record, I am not stingy.
My ex used to complain about my fondness for “cheap travels” and lectured me on why I need to adopt some luxury in my “life”. Whatever.
If he were a single parent, he’d probably be more lenient toward practicality. That is to say: I am a single mom and I am very conscious about where I spend my money on. And that I am not stingy, I just choose to be economical.
I wouldn’t wanna shell out thousands of pesos for expensive flights or private rides… neither for an extravagant cruise nor iPhone 8… But I’d rather for a pair of trainers… and a durable travel bag.
Recently, I’ve been traveling quite a lot and I realized it’s about time I invest in travel blogger necessities such as power bank (yeah I don’t have a power bank), a selfie stick (also this one obviously), a go pro, and a DURABLE TRAVEL BAG – preferably not a suitcase!
Kind of tribute to my Floral Yellow Voyager suitcase
Technically, I can still use my suitcase. But IT’S WORN OUT. If you are looking to buy new luggage, you can visit the best checked luggage brands here.
I love that Floral Yellow Voyager luggage. But it is bulky and very beach inappropriate. I got it in January of 2015 and had used it every month since. It packs efficiently. But also tolerates my inability to pack light.
Back then, I was a backpacker without THE backpack. I really wished I had a carry-on travel bag I could wear comfortably on my back without straining my shoulders (or ruining my outfit). But I wasn’t really keen on getting a black hiker bag and I kind of found the small backpack I gave to my cousin handy and so me – it was mint green…!
Fast forward to the summer of this year, I saw my blogger friends Travelosyo and Terrific Traveler flaunt their travel bags. One has a camouflage design (and his friend’s has a good desert sand shade). My friend Mon’s has a bright blue color.
All those travel bags are CabinZero.
What is CabinZero?
That was a question for myself. Such a shame! I wasn’t informed about this British brand of travel bags. But it’s never too late to get acquainted with new things, right?
So I did my research, checked CabinZero website, browsed on their products, and read my blogger friends reviews.
Days later, I received my 44L CabinZero Galactic Green Urban Backpack.
Now, I’ve become a full-fledged CabinZero brand ambassador and I am listing down here the things I love about CabinZero Urban Bags and why I recommend them to you based on my experience traveling with CabinZero!
CabinZero Bag Features
CabinZero bags are accepted as carry on by all the major airlines.
If you’ve experienced lost luggage or the jostling for space whilst waiting what seems like forever for your luggage to come down the carousel then you’ll appreciate the fact that your CabinZero bag will never have to leave your side.
CabinZero bags are light! Their classic collection weighs in at approx. 760g and their military collection is approx. 960g.
CabinZero knows there’s nothing worse than traveling with a heavy suitcase so they’ve designed their bags lightweight.
CabinZero bags have built in lost and found tags. 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 Okoban.com as soon as you receive the bag. Your bag then has lifetime protection using this lost and found system.
CabinZero bags are spacious. With your CabinZero bag, you sure have a lot of room to fit everything you need on your travels.
25 year warranty
Every CabinZero bag comes with a 10 year warranty. If you go over to their Facebook page and like CabinZero then they’ll automatically upgrade your warranty to 25 years!

My Classic 44L Galactic Green Bag
As I have mentioned, my CabinZero is a Classic 44L Galactic Green Bag. The color is perfect for my personality and compliments my shocking pink running shoes. The size is big yet not bulky. The shoulder straps are comfortable. My shoulders didn’t complain after a few hours of street walking and a traverse to MRT Shaw Blvd station :p
Almost done with my travel gear review!

What I love about #MyCabinZero
✓ It is the perfect carry on because it is cabin-sized
Didn’t have any trouble with my bag’s dimension because it’s built for the cabin. The length, height, thickness – fit perfectly in the overhead bin.
✓ It has a built in Global Tracker powered by Okoban
I registered my bag so I am confident I’d easily track it in case I lose it at the airport.
✓ It has YKK lockable zippers
With lockable zippers, I could leave my bag in the dormitory without worrying anyone would steal something.
✓ It has thick padded shoulder straps
The straps are easy on my shoulders. I didn’t have difficulty wearing them for a relatively longer period of time.
✓ It has 25 year warranty
I know if something unfortunate happens to my backpack, I can return it to CabinZero and have it replaced — even after I’ve used it. How awesome is that?!
✓ It has 44L capacity and it is lightweight
I need to squeeze in a lot of stuff into my backpack like my lenses and tripod – by the way, I want to say I was able to fit my tripod into my backpack! Amazing – so I cannot rely on 28L bag. I need 44L capacity.
In my recent travel to Palawan, I packed my 6 day stuff into my bag and they fit just quite right:
✓ It is made with strong, durable materials
I know it is early for me to say but I have a strong feeling that it is sturdy and durable enough. My friends also attest to this as some of them got their bags a year ago. Wash the bag and it immediately looks brand new! The material easily dries off! It is water resistant too!
✓ The price is just right
Backpacks in the US usually range from 99 USD to 299 USD. CabinZero is just around 80 USD! I know it is still slightly costly converted to Philippine peso, but with the quality, convenience, and warranty you are getting – it’s just worth having!

I am utterly happy to have my CabinZero bag. My recent travel packing was efficient and comfortable because of it.
I am excited to travel to my next destination with my CabinZero bag. No more baggage check-ins, no more leaving my suitcase in coin lockers. My travel bag can stay right by my side (well on my back) wherever I go, whenever I am on the go.
