CC Raika & RG (3)

This past December I decided to give my RG a break and use my Raika for awhile. I switched over to my Raika. I used it the week of Christmas. Here are some thoughts I jotted down while using the Raika for the first time:

  • The Raika doesn’t hold as many pens as my RG. Two pens vs. four.
  • The RG has more storage space and pockets, even when you take into account the half-sheet sleeve in the back of the Raika.
  • The Raika does have the half-sheet pocket that the RG doesn’t have.
  • The RG is mushier and nicer to feel than the all leather Raika.
  • Raika’s Bone color just doesn’t POP, compared to the Rose Gold color.
  • The rings are the same size.
  • Three days in (12-22-2015) and I really wish I had my RG back. Not enjoying this Containment Unit. And no it’s not because I’m still getting used to it. May sell it.
  • The evening we got back from our Christmas trip I switched back into my RG.

As of this post going live (2-8-2016), it is up for sale in several Planner Facebook groups.

    It’s probably a good idea to stick to the one you love & sell the other one!

    This is yet another one of your reviews where I like the inside of one but the outside of the other lol. Why can’t one just be perfect lol How many planners do you actively use?

      Exactly! I wish the Malibu had the half sheet pocket along the back like the Raika does. If the Raika could have held all the pens I need on a daily basis, I could have made it work.
