I held off buying this bag in Fall 07 and I'm kind of glad that I did b/c it's now available in black and grey! I'm really undecided on which color to get though. On one hand, black goes w/everything and it won't show dirt as much. But on the other hand, grey is my favorite color and my gut says to go w/the grey. Plus, I don't like the pebbled leather on the black as much. Which one do you guys prefer? To those that own MbMJ bags, what do you use to protect and weatherproof them? I live in New England and we get everything from rain to snow. I'm mostly concerned w/water spots and dirt from daily usage (especially if I do end up getting the grey). Also, I read some older threads about the Dr. Q Groovee and how if you use the longer shoulder strap, the bag loses its shape. But all of those threads were about the Fall 07 bags, not the bags from the Spring 08 line. In this picture from eluxury.com, it looks as if the bag doesn't lose its shape when the long shoulder strap is used: Is it b/c the bag is really stuffed to capacity here or do you think this problem has been "fixed" w/the newer bags? Thanks in advance for everyone's input and advice!
