Hi all, I was debating whether to get the Black Patent Maxi in the new double flap or the old single flap. I got the double flap in store because they did not have any of the single flap in stock, but I realized there were a few things I didn't like about it so I was lucky to find the single flap at another store! There are several differences between the two...

here are the two side by side (Double flap on the left)



notice how the CC clasp is larger on the double flap on the left



I know many were wondering if the double flap is bulkier and heavier. The double flap is actually LESS bulky and has less depth because the inside flap flattens the bag. The single flap on the right is wider and boxier.



here is the inside of the double flap with the two inside pockets that expand and a pocket on the front


here is the zipper pocket on the inside of the flap part and the inner flap clasp, which i find is not easy to clasp unless the bag is full.

in the end i chose the single flap because it is easier access, lighter in weight (6 ounces lighter), WAY more roomy, and the patent is a tad stiffer/puffier. i also found that the double flap maxi had this defect...



the flap doesn't lay flat and is lifted on the left side. and it stays that way. not too happy with the quality.
