I have 2 speedies. I love them for so many reasons but one is that it is such a light bag. I have one shoulder bag left. And now I'm thinking of the houston for the ONLY reason that I really want something in Pomme. I've looked at every pomme item and this is the only bag I think I would use. I need to know, from those of you that own one, what is your opinion of them. Are they heavy? Do you use it a good amount of the time. I'm thinking of the pomme and wondering if it's something I can use in the cold, snowy, rainy east coast? Is it easy to care for? Thanks so much for your (never ending) help!
