It was just over $2K with tax (DH seems to recall $2300 or so). It fits a fair amount, but I would not say alot...

To the gym...I have carried three magazines in the outside pocket...small towel, small water bottle, wallet, and phone in the interior pocket...

Daily use...I typically carry a wallet, daytimer, phone, small cosmetic case, and sunglass case (still room for papers, magazines, etc. in outside pocket)...

I don't love it overstuffed as it does not fit as nicely on the body...

I would say the GM is somewhat similar in size to the LV denim baggy hobo (a friend has one of these for travel)...it can be worn on the shoulder or messanger style... The strap is not as long as the extender to use with the LV denim baggy messanger style so it fits more smoothly against the body...

I am really looking forward to using Evelyne for travel...I purchased a new "streamlined" camera today just to suit her...

Thanks! Actually it's the same one just in different lighting with flash and without. It's Blue Jean Clemence. It's my one and only H bag so far and my fav bag!

I do want to get another in Rouge H someday!

OMG - Jill! Stray for just this one time! I think you owned an Herbag once though...right?

I know the SCP store had one just like Peli's about a month ago. She was very helpful - can't remember her name though.
