I'm obviously a new Birkin 35 owner - just a few days now. Let me preface this by saying that I'm totally in love with my bag. But, I find that it tends to get a little heavy when filled to capacity and carried around for long periods of time. Am I just a weakling :shame: or do others with Togo/Clemence/Box Birkins feel this way? Maybe I'm just overly sensitive to it. Before the big B, I'd been carrying my ultra-light Speedy 30 around. How do you carry your bag? What are your experiences with carrying it for many hours at a time? I find that it starts out on my elbow then moves from arm to arm to balance after awhile. BUT, it's so darn practical and can hold my life!! Do you guys take your bags on trips? Before children, I was big into weight lifting and was quite strong. Well, now I do workout but have taken a break from using weights. Maybe I need to break out the free weights again? Do you think that would help? LOL! Thoughts.....?
