I am running out of ideas, then thought, who else knows better than the experts on TPF? My SA recommended the Idylle ELEGIE in fusian, but I am not in love with it.

Here are my requirements:
A medium sized bag (can fit an iPad but not too big), zipped top, can be carried on the shoulder, not too heavy, and of course, is durable and dirt resistent.

What I will stay away from:
The Azur collection, they just don't agree with me that well.

I already have the following bags, but none of them fits the requirements:

- Batignolles Horizontal (open top)
- Lumineuse PM (too heavy for all day carrying)
- Verona MM (too heavy for all day carrying)
- Epi Brea MM (not big enough)
- Mohina L (too delicate for oversea traveling)
- Epi Madeline (in ivory color, so no good for travel)

Thanks much in advance!

Mono Speedy B 35 would be great. My sunglasses, wallet, makeup case, iPhone, and iPad all fit with plenty of room to spare. And lots of carry options to boot.

Here is a picture showing me carrying the Elegie. The rounded handles are uncomfortable on the shoulder but the long strap is meant for cross body carrying only. Plus I feel it is very dark. My friends say that the bag looks too matured.

What about the new Sully? The MM size should work for your requirements, as long as you don't want both shoulder and cross body options.

I would have suggested the Totally MM as well... can you wait until they restock? You can also consider the Westminster GM. It's lightweight and low maintenance.

I love the Elegie on you! I would have seriously considered buying it but I preferred the Encre colour which wasn't practical for me...

I did check out the new Sully. The handle is one wide piece and feels stiff, not my cup of tea. Thanks for the suggestion though.
