Ricardo Crystal City 17-inch Expandable Spinner Universal Carry-on
Ricardo’s Crystal City 17-inch Universal Spinner Carry-on is an unique 50/50 softside and hardside combination offering front pocketing and inherent expandability of a softside bag, with the rigid protection of hardside. Add a contemporary appearance highlighted by hardside finish like a sports car and you have a all-around winning combination.
Designed to give demanding travelers the best of both worlds, the Ricardo Crystal City collection is one of a kind. The tough hardside structure is placed in the high impact areas of the corners and sides. Today’s technologies have allowed luggage manufacturers to purchase durable hardside polycarbonate material. Which by the way, is the same high-tech plastic firemen use in their helmets and jet fighters use in their cockpits. Ricardo has taken this flexible, yet tough material and molded it into a fortress of a bag. Even the softside fabric is a tear and abrasion resistant micro ballistic nylon.
Designed with a split book-style opening, the Crystal City Expandable Spinner opens with a quality zipper placed in the middle of the bag. This popular split is somewhat old-fashioned, but favored by so many travelers for decades. Split book style opening offers two packing compartments for convenient access to all of your belongings. Separate clean clothes from soiled ones or bulky items from lightweight ones to reduce wrinkling. You decide how to pack this 17-inch mini upright for your two or three day business trip during the week or for your upcoming weekend.
Within the bag you’ll find simple, clean organization. A center divider with a view-through pocket and two release buckles keep things in place. Utilize interior cinch straps with even more tie-downs to keep your clothing from shifting during transit. Remember, clothes that shift are clothes that wrinkle.
The Ricardo Crystal City spinner uprights maneuver in any direction with four wheels. You see, turning these new multi-directional wheels allow you to turn on a dime anywhere--in a crowded elevator, hotel lobby, train station, or airport ticket counters. To top it all off, the Crystal City uprights expand to offer additional packing depth.
May we add a hearty endorsement of the aesthetics of this popular line with a striated hardside finishing giving the Crystal City a fashionable glow.
