I need some good advice and the honest truth on Paddies. I have been looking and pondering one for over a year and can't get a fix on whether one would be good for me or not. I love the look. I love the leather. Here is my main concern. Are they a PIA to get in and out of? Is that lock and double sided zipper trouble? I really like functional bags and I am worried this is more about style than functionality. And weight in the medium Paddy. How heavy is it? I am not too much of a wimp. I carry Koobas which are notoriously heavy in some styles. And what should I expect to pay tops for a new vs used Paddy? Is there some colors I shouldn't consider? Do the colors fade or transfer onto clothing? Sorry for all the questions but when considering a bag of considerable money I want to be sure. Thanks for any help in advance.
