I was so excited to finally get my Coach Cricket Metallic Satchel. I even posted just the other day about my impending bag arrival.....

I received it today and ......I am not as happy as I thought I would be. The bag is really big and heavy (to me it is). The lining is gorgeous and the rosegold hardware is perfection. But the metallic leather leaves a bit to be desired. Okay, a LOT to be desired. I inspect my new bags pretty closely and I can tell already that this leather is going to crack and flake and leave holes in the make of the bag.

That is going to make me upset to carry a bag that will look like ewww after a year, less than that actually.

Has anyone else encountered this phenomenon with the Coach Cricket collection? Just wondering.

Yes a heavy bag is a deal breaker to me. where did you purchase, at the outlet? If so, you can return it for something you do love or a refund

i have a large leather cricket satchel (not in metallic...i have the white with coral trim) and i do not find it to be heavy at all...it is also extremely durable (made it thru a hiking trip in the grand canyon without showing any perminent dirt)...maybe it's just the metallic?

My large leather Cricket satchel in putty/parchment trim isn't heavy unless I really load it down. In itself, it's pretty lightweight. The leather is thin. I try to avoid metallic leathers even though I am attracted to them. I'm worried about flaking. I say return it for another bag.
