Ryan Air Baggage cabin luggage

Canadian wants to buy a wheeled soft sided luggage Ryan Air approved bag.

Where can I buy the suitcase to pack here and take with me to Europe?

The only cabin bag positively approved by Ryan Air is the (expensive) Samsonite F'Lite model that only Ryan Air is selling. However, plenty of people succeed to travel with other bags since they just need to be within the weight and size limits.

You need to go to a shop with a tape measure and look for a bag with external dimensions that fit into the limits (currently 55 x 40 x 20 cms http://www.ryanair.com/en/terms-and-conditions#regulations-cabinbaggage). All the handles, wheels, pockets, etc. count. You need the tape measure because manufacturers far too often omit those in their stated measurements.

They have also the quaint rule that only the first 90 bags will be accepted inside the cabin. You need to pack into the cabin bag also a small canvas shopping bag or similar into which you can fit your critical medications, valuables, etc. so that you can still carry them onto the plane even if Ryan Air declares that your actual cabin bag must go into the hold without a charge.
