I have had my Damier Speedy 25 for 2 weeks now and is my first Damier item. Yesterday it was snowing/raining out here and it was so nice that I didn't even have to stress out!! Normally I would be like oh no I have to change my purse (I use to only own Mono) or I would be bummed that I couldn't wear my Mono out, or would be panicked if I was caught in the rain/snow with it already outetc! It was so nice not to have to care!!
