I purchased a Speedy 25 b in DE (made in the USA) last year and I LOVE it. The size is GREAT! I also ended up with a MIF Speedy 35 b, also in DE, I intend to use this more for travel. Both bags were purchased by me at stores in the USA, about 8 months apart. I am noticing a difference in the canvass, the 25b is almost more rubbery and the canvass was almost "firmer." My 35 has a different type of canvass, it's less rubbery. Both of my bags are the "newer" model with the interior zip pockets. I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this? I am asking the famous question....Am I crazy??? I know they are both authentic. Just curious!
