18" case seems to be rare, picked up the last unit in Tesco Navan yesterday evening so now fully kitted out. The wash bag is a handy accessory as well.
Anyone know how this deal is going for Tesco seeing as they extended it till September

The cases are selling at about 3 pallets a day. The rucksak is the most popular, its usually sold out before the next delivery. Met a few mums buying the rucksac as a school bag!

Hello all,

scudzilla brought this to my attention and I'm really not happy about it at all - it looks like Boards.ie is endorsing this product and that is both misleading and flat out immoral. Boards.ie is a platform and is independent of these sorts of things and has no opinion either way. It's nice to get the bit of free publicity in a paper like the Sunday Times, but they could at least have had the good graces to say that it was one of our members that said it and not us.

We'll be getting in touch with them about it today.

Tesco certainly has a case to answer.

Thanks Dav

I'm pretty distressed about this whole thing, how a huge and reputable company such as Tesco can print a comment i made (without permission) and attribute it to BOARDS.IE as a whole.

I do most of my shopping in Tesco and this has really put me off.

Hoping something comes from this, keep us informed

Went in to purchase one of these this evening and was disappointed with the size of the 24" case, it is just simply too small for long haul I think. Fine for a week in the canaries etc. but too small for a jaunt to South East Asia or Australia etc. The cases are to me very good quality but as I tend to travel long haul more frequently not what I was looking for. The cabin baggage is nice for Ryanair but I tend to avoid that excuse for an airline anyway.

There was no tokens in the Tesco Magazine either unless it was in last weeks edition.

I must say while it's certainly a smaller and less featuresque version of the ones for €60 and €70 and the stated RRP of €50 seems rather optimistic it's a great rucksack for €15 and it sits and feels nice while riding around.
Good quality with really good zips and overall it looks like a well made rucksack. No cheapy feel about it at all, quite the opposite, but I can't comment on how they compare to the more expensive Wenger products. For me it's a keeper. Will get either the holdall or one of the trolley bags too, really like them for the money.

Has anybody used the 18" Suitcase trolley on a Ryanair flight as "cabin size" stated by Tesco?. Wenger at Tesco is 40cm x 34cm x 22cm. Ryanair say on their website "cabin baggage size" 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. Pity the depth is 22cm. Its very difficult to get 20cm depth. Is it best to buy the Ryanair bag? Wonder what quality it is?

Picked this up today http://www.tesco.com/direct/wenger-1...172.prd...very good quality...I wouldn't worry about the 2cm theres a pocket on the front so leave that empty and you should be fine..

Yes . . and it was fine . . Although it is a little bigger than the Ryanair dimensions, it is soft and flexible enough so that you can still fit in the measuring thingy !
