Rated 5 out of 5 by aarya from Superb Quality! Nice looking and elegant carry on suitcase which is a good bag for frequent business traveler like me. I have been using this for last few trips and this is really handy the way it is built. The main compartment has two separate sections to keep the items organized. It also has a zippered water resistant toiletries bag for items needed to freshen-up. It fits nicely in the overhead storage bins in the airplane. The closing flap has a hanger hook to hold the business suits/shirts wrinkle free and sorted from other things. Wheels are looking sturdy so far and haven't seen the bag wiggling while on the terminal. I love it and totally recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kcc93 from Lightweight and highly organized! The Monterey 2.0 carry-on is lightweight and it helps keep all my items organized and clean. I like the smaller and larger compartments that divides the suitcase. There is a place for the toiletries and for shoes on the outside. The best part is the added bonus of hanging a suit while trying to prevent wrinkles right inside of the suit. I travel for business occasionally and this would be a great help. There are also various little pockets where I can tuck things in and keep it still hidden and organized. The wheels are sturdy and the handle is easy to manipulate. The extra buckles really keep everything strapped in and tidy. The extra details and features really make this suitcase amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by booboo92003 from Awesome suitcase! Just took this on a 3 week trip to 3 countries -- It made it through 6 flights weighing 50 lbs with barely any wear on the wheels and bottom. I am very impressed. The divider compartment inside is very nice for hang-up clothes. The inside zipper compartment is huge, the lining is nice, it doesn't smell, and the color blue is beautiful! I had no problems wheeling it with only 2 wheels, the handle worked great and held my laptop bag as well. The only problem I had was lifting it up the stairs at the hotel because I fit so much stuff in it! But the handle placement, zippers and everything held up great and the 25" filled to the max (50 lb) caused no problems with any of the 4 airlines I used.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verona from Disappointed Road Warrier This is the 5th or 6th bag of the same basic style that I have purchased from Ricardo. Driving me were the divided bag offering two compartments that doesn't need to be opened down the middle to access either half. All my dresses pack in the top section, everything else in the bottom half. The styling in the new bag is such that the top compartment is smaller, the bag overall seems to be reduced in space. The aluminum handle is wobbly, the nice handle on bag top is now cheap plastic. I loved my old bag. If the the zipper coil had not finally separated from the zipper tape, I wouldn't be on this current trip and unhappy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike L from Best Carry-On I've Owned This bag is lightweight but strong. The closing zippers have a solid feel, and the interior closure on the second compartment are well done also. The actual shape of the zippers are unique, and help to get a proper grip. The telescoping handle extends and retracts smoothly with no catches or stops. This is a two wheel design, and while I prefer four, this holds up well with the front support bracket where the other wheels would be so it isn't an issue, this bag stands up very well on its own. The color is very nice also, not a common color to see on a baggage carousel so its easier to pick out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobertNYC from Travel just got easier, great carry-on When you travel having a quality well made and well designed luggage makes your trip easier and more enjoyable. I love my Ricardo Monterey 2.0- 2 wheel carry on. It is light weight, stylish, and functional. It holds all I need for a short trip, or a long weekend and then some. It handles well. I love the retractable handle has its own hiding spot that you can zip up. It also has a handle on top and on the side for easy handling. The case has plenty of divided areas to keep you clothes organized, it even has a toilet bag inside. There is also a strap you you can lock it onto another piece of luggage. It is light weight weighing only around 7 pounds empty, the bag is not only well designed but, we'll made with high quality materials, zippers and pulls. You will feel good carry your belongings in this one. I love the color as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Outstanding product with exceptional room for pack The Monterey 2.0 2 Wheel Carry on is a great suit case for quick trips and to use as a carry on. The craftsmanship of this item is very detailed and was very sturdy on my weekend trip to LA. I would of liked the wheels to be a smudge bigger to make easier turns since it's only 2 wheels and you carry it behind you. The zipper on the main compartment did get stuck a few times but I caught on and if you zip it slowly it won't snag. Overall, great suitcase and worth every penny! I would definitely buy this again over many other similar size suitcases!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brad from NY from Perfect for overnight trips I travel weekly and have come to love the Ricardo brand. Their bags are well made, stand up to wear and tear and optimize space in the bag very well. The Monterey 2.0 2-Wheel Carry-On delivers on all of these expectations and more. The multiple compartments make packing a range of items in a small carry-on really easy. The bag can fit into just about any plane overhead compartment and still carry all of the items I need. The wheels roll easy with no friction and the handle opens and collapses smoothly. This has become my go to bag or overnight trips.
