I purchased my BH a few days ago and to be honest it wasn't my favorite bag, the Cabas Mezzo was but with the vachetta on the bottom I figured the BH was a more practical choice for me. Anyway, I am LOVING this bag. It is so deceptive. You can fit everything in it. I love the open top, I love everything about it. The only thing I would change at all if I could would to make the straps a little bit longer, other than that I love it!!!! I have a question about the straps. It was raining here today and I was so afraid to take the bag out. If some rain drops get on the straps will it dry up and not show or should I not have it out in the rain. I know with my older bag, the straps are already colored and it is never a problem out in the rain just not sure with the new straps if I should be really careful. Just wanted to say how much I love this bag already.
