there are no hidden fees, only extremely strict fees.  Look at the website for the exact luggage dimensions and other rules and you will be fine

Trick for getting cheaper tickets on easy jet: search a flight starting in UK (i. e. LGW-ORY) the add the flight (or flights) u really want then delete the flight starting from UK. Usually u can save a few bucks like this obviously provided ur not flying starting in UK anyway. The prices will be in GBP.
This trick not only didn't help,

it came out more expensive.

No, but my understanding is that you shouldn't buy the ticket by them rather on a third party website, otherwise you pay for your luggage.
Turns out checked bag was free

As promised, here is my report.

I flew these guys this morning from Manchester to Brussels.

My general impressions were that a) I did not see them "busting" people for having luggage that was a few inches oversized. I opted to pay a slightly lesser (but still quite steep) charge in advance to check my bags because they were oversized... but then I saw people getting on the plane with bags the same size as mine; b) waiting to check the bags was an extra half hour in line; c) the overhead bin size is rather large, at least on the plane I flew.

Bottom line: next time I would definitely just try to bring my bags on board and risk having to pay the higher fee.
