First off, I love the city of Copenhagen - It is one of my favorite places in the world :) Couple that with yearning for a leather backpack for about a solid decade now with my love of BE bags, and add a sale - deal!

The leather is chewy and just begging to be broken in and the size seems generous without being too big. I have yet to fill her up and see how she wears on the shoulders but I plan to do so soon!

To open the lock, you just squeeze in the two knobs - very easy. Although there is a keyhole, it's a "faux" keyhole so don't expect a key but I would want a key anyway. I envision this as a great bag for tooling around cities, walking around with the boys and shopping, and of course, flying on board with me to/from Copenhagen :) love, love, love anything that is hands free!

The leather is a little stiffer than how the black velvet matte started out when I first received my Barcelona. But that has broken in beautifully!! I need to get some leather honey for both bags as well :)

Very Pretty. Don't see what you mean about the plating on the lock. It appears to be like mine (Rio and Florence).

Yes, Copenhagen is a lovely city..all almost in walking range
And..you got the Copenhagen..so it was you also considering the Grey, which I recieved ..I have also been pestering Jackie about tha backpack for a while now!

I think your brown looks chewy and lovely..what leather was this?

I could not open the lock at first..OMG I felt silly, but on the other hand it would take thieving fingers a while to figure it out as well..LOL!

So how do you feel about the pockets? Will it be strange to have the zippered pockets a la Cannes placed on the bag?

It's the little faux keyhole, right in the center of the middle bulb - mine is the dark metal with no plating inside. On the website, this looked to be all gold, but apparently it is not. Not a deal breaker, but initially I thought the lock was broken!

I read your response re the pockets on your Cannes thread, and my initial thought was that ..perhaps some larger zippered pockets may add a bit sleeker look to the model..as well as being practical!

I've only used my Copenhagen once, and will post pictures soon!

Me too!! I can't wait to put some Leather Honey on her also, to soften the leather and deepen the color, which is growing on me :)

It's a beautiful bag, and leather- the stitching detail is gorgeous.

I have now used my Copenhagen and it's so pleasant to walk with handsfree. It's light to carry and easy to get the stuff in and out..but I would still prefer zipper back pockets!
