Rohan Bags Price Index – We have been tracking the price of a pair of Rohan Bags thirty six years. It is getting increasingly difficult to find a consumer product that has been in continual production for any length of time, however in Rohan Bags we are fortunate to have such an item with a lineage stretching back over 36 years.

The Rohan Bags Price Index starts in 1978 but we have been unable to determine the price of a pair of Bags for this year. Can anyone help?

A pair of Rohan Bags in 1979 was £19.00 and this year 2015 the price of a pair of Rohan Bags is £57.00.

UPDATE: We have had lots of feedback on the Bags Price Index with many stories on our first Rohan purchase. Not surprise Rohan Bags was number one first purchase for many. We thought we would ask the question on FacebookTwitter  and in the comments below:

What was your first item of Rohan Clothing and where did you buy it?

    If the 1979 price of £19 was indexed by reference to changes in the RPI the current price would be £86, which is some 50% higher than the current list price. Was £19 in 1979 too expensive or is £57 today too cheap?

    Of course with the movement of production to lower cost environments one would expect the cost savings to some extent feed through to the selling price but I guess that the SP is ultimately determined by refence to the market. What would be interesting would be to measure the price movement against comparable products – but then can anything be compared with the iconic Rohan bags?
