It seems like everyone here only likes the small one. I like the small one too but unfortunately Barneys was sold out of that size. They only had one left on the floor and it was all scratched They had a lot left of the large tall one but it did seem a tad heavy. I did like it though. It seems like the larger one may be easier to put the straps on your shoulder which is good. Does anyone have the large version and can comment on how you like it? Thanks!!!
