Picture it, a girls weekend in Vegas and you can only bring a carry-on. Do you panic? How on earth will you fit a party dress, swim suit and a few casual clothes as well? The Ricardo Elite Roxbury 2. 0 is about to become your best friend.
Over packing is a real problem for me
I am habitually an over-packer. As much as I travel one would think I have it down to a science. Nope, completely not true. I get so overwhelmed that I just start throwing things in the bag. Without fail, I always end up with a ton of clothes I never need. It’s exhausting to be honest. I even over-pack for the kids when they come with me. Thus resulting in more bags than we need and annoyances in the airport. As my kids have gotten older, I have embraced a carry-on mind set when we fly now, but I couldn’t find a bag to fit everything and still fit in the overhead bin.
Roxbury 2.0 Luggage Review
The bag is hard sided and I love that! Let’s be real our luggage takes a real beating when we travel. That also means you can fit more in the bag, and it wont bulk out on you. I have rolled, crammed and squeezed a weeks worth of clothes in this bag and I can always fit in into the overhead bin. Another favorite feature of mine are the dual spinner wheels, that allow for 360° mobility whether you push, pull or walk alongside the case. Don’t you hate it when your bag won’t cooperate getting off the plane? The Roxbury 2.0 rolls with you in any direction.
Being a travel agent, I often have to take my office with me on trips. This luggage is great for quick trips as it has a fold out mobile office. I can take this carry on and my purse and not need a full laptop bag as well. I can fit my laptop, notebook, chargers and more in the front, with room to spare!
Foldout Mobile Office Features:
- Padded Electronic Sleeve (holds laptop/tablet up to 15.5″)
- Organizer Pockets
- Zippered Utility Mesh Pockets
- Zippered front Panel
My challenge was to fit no more than what I would need for a three-day trip into my new carry on. Don’t worry I am not sharing photos of my unmentionables, lets just say they had a home. I picked out what I would need for three days in Orlando, so I included my sneakers. We all know they tend to take up a good bit of space, right?
Here is what I needed to fit in the Roxbury 2.0
- 3 pairs of shorts
- 1 pair of slacks
- 4 tops
- bathing suit
- glasses case
- travel toiletry kit
As I looked at the 19 in hard sided carry on I thought there was no way I was fitting all of this in.
I did it!! I fit three days worth of travel needs into one carry on, including all of my office needs. The bag is super lightweight, even with the hard sided shell. Anyone can easily lift this bag into the overhead bins.
If you are a road warrior like me you need this bag, offering multi-compartment organization, a fold out mobile office and two compartment packing Roxbury 2.0 bag is perfect.
