Curious to know: Has anyone else experienced this with their Victoria's? I've noticed a number of cracks (about 3mm deep) on the handles of my Victoria. The cracks are located on the sides - just above the diamond shaped stitching (to hold the handle & bag together) ~ If that makes any sense? Sorry I do not have any photos because I had already brought my bag back to H. But I thought I'ld post this message to see if my bag was the only one experiencing this problem or could it be a design fault? I had the bag for about 1.5 months. And I'm a little disappointed because I don't carry super heavy items in my bag (and Victoria FT is suppose to be a luggage/carry-on)...Can't wait to hear your inputs!
