Hi Everyone! I'm reporting back here on our Neo saga...
My new Medium Neo arrived today from Bloomies. It has the large inner back pocket, and I love it! :nuts: :heart:
The adjustable strap is also a big plus (my old version's strap is not adjustable).
I am so glad I decided to get another Medium. Now both my Small and Medium have two inside pockets. Yippee!

I hope everyone get their pieces too and loves it too!

Congrats on your bag! My medium Neo should be delivered tomorrow. Today the neo large over the shoulder arrived.

I just got the medium in. I really like it. I’m not sure if I need both the medium and the large tote but I feel they are different enough I should keep both.

Yes. That’s why I suggested you also order the medium. Once you stuff both, I personally think you will find the medium easier to use and more versatile. For me, I like medium over the large long strap. Try to stuff both and see how it feels.

Im still torn. I think I will just keep both. The large could be nice for travel. I use a LV keepall for trips but for longer than three day trips its really not big enough.

In case this might help... I use the Expandable duffle when I really need to carry stuff.
Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Travel Duffel Nylon Weekender | Bloomingdale's (bloomingdales.com)

This is my favorite bag to carry on the airplane. It squishes to nothing if you don't need to fill it. There is also an expandable section which I like, but I never use it expanded. The bag size is perfect, and what I love about it is the shoulder strap (I added one of those comfort shoulder strap pads in the center so now it's super comfy when I lug it through the airport).

For me, the straps on the large dug into me after I've stuffed it which is why that was the deal breaker for me. I got rid of mine.
If the long straps do not bother your shoulder, keep both. One can never have enough travel bags!
