About Easyjet Hand Luggage
According to the EasyJet website, there is no weight limit on the baggage that you carry in to the plane cabin with you. As long as you can comfortably carry the bag on to the plane, and it will fit in the overhead locker, then you are free to bring it on board.
It is the sizing of the bag that is important - no bags over 50 x 40 x 20cm (EasyJet Plus cardholders can take bags that have a few more centimetres allowance) are allowed to travel in the cabin with you. Bags over this size must be put in the hold with your other luggage. EasyJet will try and sell their own bags to you, as well as a guaranteed travel bag add-on, which gives worried flyers assurance that the bag will travel with them (the bag still has to be within the allocated size limits).
Because the sizing is used quite frequently on planes as the guideline for cabin baggage, many companies and brands make bags that are these exact dimensions or a little bit smaller. Some EasyJet cabin-sized bags will have wheels and a handle for ease of transportation, whereas others will take the form of rucksacks or traditional briefcases. More often than not, these bags are a suitable size for a short holiday, meaning that no extra payment needs to be made for luggage to go in the hold of the plane. Bags can be bought in all sorts of different styles; catering for any fashion or style preferences the traveller may have.
