Hi All,

I'm going to Israel for a week this summer, and am looking for a cabin bag to take with me as I don't want the hassle or cost of a hold bag. I am flying with easy jet, so I think the restriction is 50cm/40cm/20cm. I'm going to be ale to pack light as I can wash clothes every night, so minimal clothing is required, however I definitely want to take my Canon 600D and 50mm 1.8 lens. A Nexus 7 tablet will also be present. I can't think of or find a bag that suits these needs particularly well. Budget can stretch to about £60 max.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated,

Abel

I travel indefinitely via hotels/hostels through 3 climates with a 46 litre carry-on size backpack with LOTS of room left over - all the cinch straps are yanked to their tightest dimensions so the backpack is really only 32 - 35 litres and that easily makes Easyjet size restrictions.

That's including a set of nice clothes to crash an Embassy party or high-end club, normal day-to-day casual and hiking wear, beach clothes, personal hygiene products and everything else you need to be safe/comfortable plus a laptop, digital still/video package and all the peripherals.

That backpack is 6 cm longer than what is allowed on Easyjet, but the width/depth are way under limit so the backpack easily squishes into their frame.
My set-up is likely out of your price range, but I wanted to show you one option...

Have fun and good luck shopping.

Cheers
