The bag itself isn't heavy, since it has no chains. But, it can hold a ton of stuff and is a great bag for work. I usually don't use the snap-in insert. The shoulder strap is removable, so I keep it in the bag in case I need to use. It served me very well on a day trip to NY a few weeks ago. I had a book, a shawl, water, all my stuff and it got really heavy, but it has served me very well. It's a good work bag because it's a very "quiet" Chanel bag. Not flashy. Just right.Hi all,
I'm interested in buying the chanel executive (aka the Cerf) - A15206 for work and possibly weekend. Is it heavy? Thanks!!!
I wonder if you have the first season Cerf? It was originally made in deerskin and after customers complained to s/a's that it was too heavy, Chanel replaced the deerskin with a pebbled calfskin and kept the name Cerf.I find it heavy after several hours of use. It's heavier than any of my other bags. I use mine with out the shoulder strap and interior pouch.
That being said, it's elegant and a workhorse of a bag and holds a ton of stuff!
