Thanks for your info, that's what I didn't want a heavy structured bag. You have been a GREAT help! Do you happen to know anything about Berkeley Damier? I am looking for a Damier Ebene bag for work (easy to carry) any ideas:?:It's too structured and heavy. The shape of the PM and the MM is different. The MM and GM have bigger and deeper bodies and all 3 sizes are shoulder bags though...except the MM and GM have adjustable straps while the Pm doesn't. The straps aren't ideal for travelling because they're stiff and have a tendency to fall off the shoulder.
The bag itself, I'm talking about the MM is heavy without things. So it gets heavier especially when you carry lots of stuff, especially while travelling. I took mine to Hong Kong recently and ended up buying the Prada Nylon Jacquard Tote bag....love that nylon bag! However,it's a lovely bag to carry to work....classy!Why is it bad for travel? t/y
Neverfull GM is also pretty heavy when loaded. I think the Cabas Rivington is a better bet....try it out in stores....load your things in the bag and see if you like it.I've read a few complaints here about the Damier Berkeley being too heavy....one tPFer even returned hers because she couldn't handle the weight of the bag. The bag is already heavy even when empty, so I can just imagine how it's going to be when filled with your stuff for work. How do you feel about open tops? The only Damier Ebene bags I can think of from the current ones that seem suitable for work (because of size and comfort) are the NF, Cabas Rivington, Rivington GM, Hampstead MM
