Do you have this camera bag? Do you love it? The dimensions are comparable to a jumbo...I wonder if this would be a good alternatice to a black jumbo, since it fits probably just as much but is something different.

I always see pics of the reissue tote/camera bag but rarely this one. Is it because it's just less popular? Hard to find when it was available?

Thanks!

hi Karman,
i am pretty new to Chanel and own a black jumbo in cavier :P my 1st Chanel purchase!
And am also eyeing this camera bag but saw one in pink iin the exact model as the one u posted. I guess it's a nice change and I m trying to convince myself to get it for more casual use and keep the jumbo for more formal wear.

A sunny, happy place!
I have the medium reissue camera bag and I prefer that style to this. This one looks too similar to the jumbo flap, and between the two, the jumbo flap is a more timeless style IMO.

I have a medium and large reissue camera case and find they are great for everyday bags. If you want something other than a flap, I think a camera case is a good option. I think the reissue camera cases are more "popular" because they went on sale. They weren't huge sellers until they did go on sale;)

Right where I want to be
I have this bag and I do :heart: it. It is a very easy to use go-to bag. It holds a lot, it is comfortable and work totally casual or a little more dressy. I tend to think that it is more casual than a jumbo, but I just carried it the other day to a more dressy event where I was wearing a skirt and it looked great. I also have GST, Cerf, and several flaps.....love them all...but this is definitely one of my most used. Good luck deciding.

Thanks for your input ladies! And yes...between this and a jumbo I'd get a jumbo any day, EXCEPT I already have a M/L flap in black caviar with silver SHW..and I'm not quite ready to get a black jumbo in SHW yet (I wouldn't get GHW, I prefer SHW) since that means I'll never use my M/L again. I'd rather get a jumbo in other caviar colours first! :nuts:

I agree this is a little more casual compared to a flap and that is why I was eyeing this bag. Sometimes I choose to wear a non-Chanel bag because all my Chanels are so dressy!

I like this! This is more casual than the normal Chanel bags... Also, I read that it is much more spacious. Saw a light pink online somewhere, very sweet and gentle colour!
