I love the look of the Ada in bourbon, but doubt I will ever own one if it's that heavy, but how heavy is heavy? Lexie, I read your response to another post which said "I just sold my Black Leather Ada because it weighed 42 lbs empty!!!" Are you serious? :wtf::wtf::wtf: ... surely not.

Ladysalesrep, you are hilarious. Do you think the weight issue is why there tend to be a lot on eBay? It's such a shame because there's a bourbon one that looks to die for.

Is there anyone who has one, loves it and actually uses it?

Here I am to save the day! :P

I don't think it's that bad..but then you're talking to a person who does bicep curls with 25 pound weights. When I threw my Audrey in it, it definitely added to the weight, but w/out it, I don't really notice it as being a load.

But I'm pretty strong so you may think it's a monster. Is there a store where you can go try one on? Put some stuff in it and see how you feel?

ps: yes you can put it on your shoulder, it IS snug but it does help keep it there for me cause my shoulders slope. I look like a hanger. :yes:

Thanks for finding the thread Halzer.

Bicep curls with 25lb weights???? Good grief Grace, I have a problem with 4 pounders! No chance of me being able to pick up an Ada then. Shame because it looks fabulous in pics. There are quite a few Ada's up for sale but well priced baby versions (Jillians) have dried up :sad:

Waves to Grace....another weight lifter here. I do 25lb wts. for curls too! And I load up that leg press up with 6-45lb. plates, yet I still couldn't carry an Ada. That bag is so beautiful though.

Ps, for the shoulder slope try Arnold shoulder presses, the twist at the end puts a little cap on the end to hold those bags. *s

Mini, I shouldn't have exaggerated like I did. That bag doesn't weigh an ounce over 41 lbs! But it sure is beautiful!

Too funny Lexie, I think I'll pass on ever having an Ada. I can't afford the crane that I'd need to accompany it!

My jillian is pretty heavy! and that is ada's little sis!

I tried on Ada at the sample sale, within 3 minutes I realized NO WAY could I carry this beautiful bag around. So I opted for Jiliian. So glad I did!
