Smaller laptop bags take off

For those used to fitting enough for a fortnight in Ibiza into a carry-on roller bag, the new hand baggage rules have come as something of a rude awakening. Here at Stuff, we can't do anything about global terrorism but we can do something about finding you some smart new cabin-friendly luggage. Unless you want to see your precious electricals slung into the hold, your best bet is to find a suitably sized laptop bag. Catering for this need, LaptopStuff (no relation) has come up with a new ‘Aircraft safe’ symbol for all its bags that make the grade. The Sumo (pictured) is one of the approved models that gets the pink plane logo. For those not attracted by the felted Sumo there are 71 other designs, from 19 manufacturers. Stuffers shopping elsewhere should make sure their bags come in under 450x350x160mm.
