Honestly-I'd go to a store and try them both on. They're SO vastly different it's hard to say. I'd probably say the jumbo since it's a classic but it really just depends on your taste. Good luck!

That's a tough one! I have both and love them equally. It really comes down to personal taste. Of course the cabas is a bit less expensive, so that would help my decision. ;)

I used to think def the cabas, but after getting a few jumbos , I love them, they look great slung low messenger style and great carried with the strap doubled. I say get the jumbo, its a great bag for ever. Gorgeous, I love the new chain jumbos, my favorite!

Jumbo flap unless you're tiny or shorter. It's a big bag. I'm sorry I didn't get the medium flap instead. Maybe I'll just have to get another one!

Totally different bags and I don't think there is really comparing the two b/c they are so different.

Personally, I'd get the jumbo. Not only will it just continue to go up in price, I just love it. It is my favorite Chanel and gets almost daily use. Granted, I am not a fan of the Cabas whatsoever though so the choice is easy for me.

I have both, but if only allowed one I'd pick the jumbo. That will be a timeless bag whereas I do admit, the cabas is a bit more trendy. Also, the jumbo is more versatile IMO form day to night or dressy. The baby cabas is more only for day, at least for me.
