So as many of you know, last time I purchased an azur speedy 25, elux sent me a terribly used one! And today, I paid $6 for parking and spent a good amount of time looking for the perfect azur (the SA was wonderful and patient) but I can't believe some of the "problemed" ones I saw. I looked at 4 total. One had a crooked Made in USA tab. I'm usually picky but this was obvious. Another had whiter spots on the tab (from the natural cow hide they use). It looked like it was bleached AND the handles were so wrinkly on the bottom that it felt uncomforable when hand-held. On the 3rd one, the canvas was sewn bad so it was wrinkly by the piping. So FINALLY I decided on the 4th.... the only "flaw" on that one was that the zipper wasnt sewn very well. Well, after paying the atrocious price for parking... and bribing a good friend to drive... we made our way home. Well, in the car... I find that 1. the fabric on the zipper has a hole!!!! YES, A HOLE! and 2. there was something wrong with the cowhide on the tip of the tab so that on one side.... it isnt thick, its seriously SO thin its like a sheet of paper!!!! I'm so frustrated! Can't I just walk in, grab one, and leave with one in acceptable condition. I looked carefully at tht store but I guess not carefully enough!!! Now, i have to go back tomorrow.
