I'm looking at the Artsy Mono vs the Melie. Some people have said the Artsy handle is stiff, the canvas is cracking and it's a heavy bag. Then with the Melie I've heard of issues of pin holes only after a short time of having the bag. I'm disappointed to hear of issues with cracking, glazing, and etc when we pay so much for these bags. So far knock on wood I have not had a problem with my Neverfull GM. Due to some of these problems which bag would you choose or would you not take the gamble?
