Personally unless you can see it. Check the fit. The zippers. Straps. I wouldn't touch it . It's also not like Ryanair doesn't mark up almost all the goods it sells.€3 bottles of water :roll:

You're almost certainly better off getting a real backpack and paying the €15 surcharge for hold luggage.

Are you trying to save the cost of putting a rucksack in the hold or do you want to be first out of the airport ?

Either way I would choose the best rucksack that works for you ( my case Osprey Kestrel 38) and pay the extra to put it in the hold. I found the wait in baggage handling to be very short at this small airport and anyway the Camino will most likely remove the desire to rush and be first on and off - a great release : Buen Camino

Remember RyanAir weight limit too

"Strictly one item of cabin baggage per passenger (excluding infants) weighing up to 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm is permitted. (handbag, briefcase, laptop, shop purchases, camera etc.) must be carried in your 1 permitted piece of cabin baggage.

Extra/oversized cabin baggage will be refused at the boarding gate, or where available, placed in the hold of the aircraft for a fee of £60/€60."
