I never paid much attention to this bag. At the time it came out I bought an Ada in black leather and found out it had a serious weight problem...LOL I've been seeing an occassional Braeden here or there and wondered if I passed on a Good thing. I wonder if it pouches or does the small depth make digging for things impossible. And I wondered about the weight. It has less studs than the Ada but is it still a heavy heavy bag. The black leather ones are so nice looking. Also, I wondered about the shoulder strap. Is it really short and is it too short to wear comfortably. So...anyone have a leather Braeden or seen one IRL???
