I'll state the question first in case people dont want to read this long long post... Does anyeone else notice this diference between the azur and mono speedies with regard to the lock denting the tab?? Which speedy do you have and does it "dent"? I like prefer the look of the Speedy with the lock attached, so when I got mine, I couldnt wait to put it on. But after a day with the lock on, it dented the tab. It felt "tight" (for lack of a better word, i dont know how else to explain it). Of course I was concerned as it was a brand new speedy with a dent on the tab already and if it dented in one day what would happen if I had the it on for years? The side of the lock was digging into the tab. I never saw any other bags witht he same issue but since I had already had 3 speedies (another long story) and they ALL did that within a day... as much as I didnt like it, I accepted it as "normal" and simply took the lock off and kept it off as I didnt want to further damage the tab. Well yesterday I've recieved a used azur speedy with the lock already attached. I couldnt help my curiosity and inspected it and noticed this... The tabs on the azur are much thinner! A closer inspection, and the material is also different, on my mono, the tab is thicker and a softer more cushiony leather (see the wrinkles, keep in mind that aside from todays experiement, i only had the tab on for one day for about 1 hour) while on the azur it is thin and very tough, not cushiony at all. It looks liek it could really take a beating and still look new (the azur bag has been carried also and it was probably carried with the lock on). Here they are with the locks on... The lock on the mono is really "tight" and the lock edge seems to push up on the tab as if every second it is attached it is digging into the tab while ont he azur, the tab just rests on it very comfortably and has room to move around freely. Not jsut with this, but overall the azur seems to be better made than the speedy with respect to everythign else.
