I was looking all around trying to figure out the strap. Then I contacted a seller who I knew sold Koobas. She also found another weird thing on Edens. Check out the Eden's on Elux. In the inside view of the black one there is a snap. Although on the inside view of the metallic one, there is NO snap. http://www.eluxury.com/browse/product_assortment.jhtml?SectionID=9000&CategoryID=9156&SubCategoryID=9174&ClassificationID=9176 And on Kooba's site the picture clearly shows the strap going across the whole front of the bag. I guess whoever is making a particular bag has the right to change major features...LOL Not good for quality control at Kooba.
