After months of stalking it on NM online, I finally was able to snag this Be&D Bond bag at an unbelievable price ($318...from $1300!). There was some trepidation, because it kept disappearing from the website and then reappearing, so I feared it had been bought and returned multiple times. Thankfully, it came in perfect condition...no marks, soft leather, no signs of being used, no scratches on the hardware...BUT, if it is a return, I think I know why. This thing is a f'ing BRICK! It weighs as much empty as my RM Matinee full. I've picked up the studded Garbo bags and they were really light, so I was hoping this wouldn't be too bad. I know the Bond has larger studs and metal rings, but WOW, they must all be solid metal! Now, I'm no scrawny weakling, and weighty bags have never bothered me before, but I dunno if this one is gonna be too much. And I can't know until I've used it! What do you all think? Keeper or send it back? I love the look so much (and it was such a steal!) but I don't want to feel like I'm smuggling bowling balls. Should I just carry it around the house for a bit to see how it is?
