Hi all! This is my first time posting and my first Kooba. I just got a gorgeous Meredith in slate on sale. I love the look and feel of the bag, but am finding the clasp is really tough to operate. Is anyone else having this problem and do you have any tips? It's easy to open and really tough to close. I wondering if it's going to drive me sufficiently crazy that I should return the bag. And this forum is so helpful -- thanks to all of you!
