and at first i was a little bummed out, since I just bought my argent small paddington, and now it seems like this one is replacing it, and my bag is out of date (that's what my boyfriend said - isn't he mean? you'd think he'd be a little more sensitive to my plight!) but then i was looking at it more closely, and I realized that one of the things i *loved* about my paddington was the fact that you don't have to zip the zippers up - you just flip the lock over, and wham-o, the bag is closed and pick-pocket safe. and if you want to get into the bag, it's easy - just flip the lock right over. BUT with the new paddys, there's no flipping. you have to unzip and rezip the bag every time (and with the smaller one, you'd have to zip each side because there's no way your hand is getting into that little space), which seems like it would get to become a pain. SO, maybe my paddy is a little out of date (and maybe, secretly, i like the small lock one more because it would be SO much lighter) but it's missing a very functional feature. anyone else have any thoughts?
