General Sizing Information

We are frequently asked “what size bag should I get!?” Below we give a few examples of what each size is generally used for. The capacity and dimensions of each bag are also listed in the table below.

  • Extra Small [XS]: These make lovely baby bags or are ideal for short trips to the gym or beach. Many customers buy them as presents for new borns or toddlers to get them started on the journeys!
  • Small [S]: We recommend the small size as a handy day bag or gym bag. Handy for going to the pool or the kids going to school. Ideal for 6-11 year olds also.
  • Medium [M]: The medium is by far the most popular size of McWilliam Bag. Ideally sized for day to day use and airplane carry on luggage; you will wonder how you ever managed without one. Ideal for 11+ years old and teenages/secondary school students.
  • Large [L]: If you need a bit of extra space for all your sports gear, or if you’re aren’t fond of taveling light, then the large size is for you. We have traveled all over the world sailing with a large bag as our trusty carry on luggage partner. If they ask, simply squish it to fit!
  • Extra Large [XL]: The more space you have the more things you find to fill it. If you fill and extra large McWilliam Holdall we’ll be impressed … why could you possibly need that much stuff!?

Carry On Luggage Advice

We use Large and Medium Bags as carry on luggage all the time. The medium is within airline dimensions. The large is slightly bigger but we have never been questioned in all our years of flying. No one questions style and good taste after all!

  1. Dr Cecilia McCluskey

    I bought my first McWilliams bag when I was 22 and 20 years on I still have it. It’s been all around the world and has helped me move house countless times. My original red/white one was joined by several others over the years as my family expanded. My husband is a convert and loves when we go away and our bags are easily spotted at the airport! My kids were bought bags when they were born and got new ones when they completed their ISA sailing levels. My red/white bag is due to retire but I won’t throw it out ever I have so much history with it. I will replace it this summer not sure what colour to go with but it will absolutely have to have the trademark rainbow handles! This is genuinely a bag for life…..

    Absolutely thrilled with my new bag. Green and white with pink straps. So delighted I ordered one after humming and hawing about it for so long. 10/10 could rate it highly enough, ordered a size medium and it’s perfect. Everyone working in Cork is extremely helpful too, they really went above and beyond when I couldn’t track my order. Bag was delivered in 3 days! Can’t rate McWilliam Bags and all the staff working there highly enough.
