Hi all, i tried a search on sizes for Herve, but not much found. i'm looking at herve b/c i just started grad school and just want a bag that i can schlep and not worry about it. i have longchamp but i like the durability of herve too.

so i went to the boutiques that carry herve, every one has different colors and sizes. i understand that the smaller size, model 925 is the most popular. the next size up, the weekender, model 913, seems ginormous, but i wonder how big it looks once it's all stuffed. i bought a smaller size and my stuff fits in there, but i don't know, it seems that i might need a something a little bigger to carry a sweater or food when i'm hungry during classes.

does anyone own the weekender, larger size one? is it a bottomless pit, or is it more practical than the smaller size?

thanks ahead of time...

The 913 is much larger than the 925 but there are lots of girls who use it as a bag to carry their books in or as an weekend. I don't think it's going to be huge because you're probably not going to stuff it to the brim so it wouldn't look ginormous. If you want to carry a sweater and snacks, I doubt all that stuff would fit in the 925.

i have the 925 and its not big enough for when i go away on weekends...i like the size of the 913 but dont have one yet. i think the best part about the material is that if u dont stuff it, it doesnt take up much extra space, u kno? it just sorta fits watever u put in it

p.s. the longchamp le pliage large size is somewhere inbetween the sizes of the 925 and 913...u could check them out too. theyre also a french company that makes nylon bags

i went ahead and bought the larger size so at least i have a backup in case the smaller size seems too small. i bought the larger size in a darker color, charcoal grey with purple so at least it gives the illusion of not looking too big.
