Smart Gear has introduced RyanMax, a backpack that minimises airline baggage fees, maximise mobility.

Starting on 1 November, two of the biggest low-cost airlines, Ryanair and Wizz Air, have cut almost half the volume of hand luggage travellers can take with them on the flight.

The new size of free carry-on luggage on Ryanair flights is now 40 x 25 x 20 cm (20 litres), compared with the previous limit of 58 litres for two bags.

However, the baggage size is made to accept bags of 42 x 30 x 20 cm. The Wizz Air free allowance is 40 x 30 x 20 cm.

In answer to customer frustration and the lack of quality bags in the market that can maximise the new allowance, Smart Gear invented a solution - the RyanMax backpack.

There are two backpack options - RyanMax+, which has a 15′′ Laptop and 10.5′′ Tablet compartment with an 18-litre main compartment, and RyanMax with a big 20-litre main compartment. Both bags are 40 x 29 x 19 cm in size. They are deliberately made slightly smaller to allow for some bulge.

The RyanMax backpack is water-resistant and comes with:

● Top quality durable materials,

● Safety features,

● Easy access main compartment

● Mesh compartment in lid

● Two quick grab zipper pockets with waterproof zip

● Clever bag loops at the back panel to slide over a trolley handle

● Detachable connecting clips at the top of the straps,

● Removable sternum strap

● Built-in credit card/transport card slot

● Hidden pocket for passport and wallet,

● Fleece-lined pocket to store sunglasses or a mobile phone

● External battery pocket,

● Tracker pocket for Bluetooth or GPS trackers

RyanMax fits most of the airlines' current carry-on and personal item requirements including: American Airlines, United, Alaska Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, Virgin America, Hawaiian Airlines, Spirit, Frontier, Allegiant.
