I finally found my dream bag (large black multipocket with nickel hardware) last winter and while I LOVE her and she's gorgeous, I CANNOT continue to carry her. She's SO HEAVY! That rolled strap along with all the weight from the leather, suede, and hardware is doing a NUMBER on my back and neck. I was literally in so much pain last week that I had to stick her in a shopping bag and haul her around that way. I can ONLY carry her in the winter (more padding over my coat), and even now I'm finding that I can't handle carrying her at all anymore. I don't put THAT much stuff in her - just a wallet, zip case w/hand sanitizer and "feminine products", a little emergency kit of bandages and a pill box, my iPod, sunglasses, cell phone, and a few lip balms. I don't think I'm overloaded - I really think it's the bag. When I carry my other bags with all of my junk, I don't have a problem, but with her...it's painful. So (after my long drawn-out story) I need an alternative. I'm going to sell her and get something new - I was thinking of the Totally Turnlock Faridah in black. What do you guys think? I can't spend more than $500 (new or used, no preference) and the new bag must be lightweight and comfortable to carry (i.e. no rolled shoulder straps). I also have to have a shoulder bag, nothing to carry or put in the crook of my arm. I'm seriously agonizing over selling my MP...but I figure what's the use in having her if I can't even enjoy her? thithi will understand - she knows what I went through for this bag. :shame: TIA you guys.
