    Ricardo Bags are Going Downhill, November 20, 2013

    Ricardo use to make fantastic bags; but that really has changed in the past few years. They are one of the few companies that make two compartment bags so you can put your dress clothes in one compartment and your other clothes in a different one and keep everything very nice and neat for traveling. The first Ricardo’s I ordered 5+ years ago were fantastic and each year the design gets a little worse to the point where its now time for me to find a different bag manufacturer than Ricardo for our luggage needs. It’s still a decent bag if you don’t travel a lot, but its no longer a top notch bag for those who are constantly on the road.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    The ridged seam near the bottom of the large, outer compartment frayed with the very first flight, and continues to worsen. Doesn’t look so nice with the duct tape I had to put on it to prevent further damage.

    While I like the overall design and light weight of the product, it is definitely flimsier than my previous Ricardo bag. I guess there’s a trade-off: strong, heavy-duty materials given up for light weight.

    I calculated the amount I spent on my first Ricardo bag in the early ’90s and converted it to today’s dollars — arriving at $175. I then searched for a bag of similar quality as the old Ricardo, in any brand, but found nothing in that mid-range price. Just another example of the fraying of product quality in today’s world.
