I would not call it extremely heavy, but it does have some weight to it. I have never had any problems with chipping colors. I also have the aurelia mm and LOVE it!!! I would say if its between those two, get the aurelia if you can find it. :okay:For those of you who have this bag, is it extremely heavy? Also, how do the colors hold up to chipping? Would you go for the speedy or the aurelia?
