no problem. i understand the time zone difference. now, in singapore its morning! hope to see more pics soon from you! thanks.No problem! I'm not home right now so it won't be till later tonight for the pictures. Perhaps I'll take a modeling picture too .
It's fairly heavy, especially once you get it loaded with your stuff, but not unmanageable. It most definitely holds its shape completely! It's very structured and the shape won't budge. As you can see from the picture the bottom is pretty reinforced so that keeps it from sagging. The quilting is also quite thick and luxurious which also helps it keep its shape.
i have the tivoli PM and the front/back cant hold up the shape. i must always adjust from time to time. and, the tivoli PM zipper is really hurting my hands/fingers whenever i want to get something out from it. the zipper is quite sharp.
since you mentioned "... it's a bit hard to open when you need to get something out. The opening doesn't like to stay open because of the shape so you kind of have to wrestle with it a little" therefore i'm afraid the zipper might hurt too (same as the tivoli PM).
