Ricardo Beverly Hills Launches the Montecito 2.0 Luggage Collection


Ricardo Beverly Hills Launches the Ultimate in Travel Convenience and Style with the Montecito 2.0 Luggage Collection


June 23, 2023, Kent, WA — Ricardo Beverly Hills, the Washington-based global luggage and travel accessories leader, is pleased to announce the launch of their newest wheeled luggage collection Montecito 2.0. In both hard-side and soft-sided constructions, these are ideal for every traveler’s packing style.


The Montecito 2.0 features include a protected USB port, conveniently located on the exterior of the luggage. The ergonomic telescoping handle with a comfort-molded grip make it easy to maneuver through crowded airports, while the 360° dual wheels provide stability and smooth rolling. The hard side cases in Hunter Green and Graphite are made with a 100% durable polycarbonate material and the soft side styles in Graphite use an abrasion and water-resistant material with corner protectors.


President Paul Sarazin says, “The Montecito 2.0 collection features the travel-friendly details consumers are looking for. From the inside to the outside, the new cases are loaded with the extra features travelers have come to expect from Ricardo Beverly Hills.” 

Montecito 2.0 features include a TSA approved Travel Sentry® lock. The hard side carry-on size is available both with the FastAccessTM front pocket that provides easy access to your travel essentials and without. The top and side handles and bottom grip make it easy to lift and carry your luggage. Additional features include a bonus shoe bag, the TSA friendly  3-1-1 snap out toiletry bag, and a laundry bag in the front opening FastAccessTM case. 

The soft-sided cases have four access pockets on the exterior and are expandable. The recessed ID card holder keeps your personal information secure and features the stylish touch of perforated vegan-leather trim.


Timm Fenton, Vice President of Design and Development says, “The front opening on this hard case allows for convenient, easy access to last-minute packed items. Travelers will appreciate what this front opening provides knowing their laptop and personal items will remain protected and secure.”  





The interior of the Montecito 2.0 is just as impressive as the exterior, with a spacious main packing compartment, a pouch for a removable battery (available separately), and an internally routed cord to the USB port for easy device charging. Clothing stays organized with adjustable compression straps and zippered pockets (two in the carry-on, four in the checked size). The TSA-friendly toiletry pouch and padded media pocket make packing a breeze, and the secondary packing compartment with a zippered divider and pair of shoe bags (in the regular carry-on only) ensures that belongings stay in their proper place. These new bags are the ultimate travel companion for your next adventure. Retail prices range from $169 to $229 and are available at RicardoBeverlyHills.com and retailers nationwide.
