Okay so I have been internally debating on the Mini Lin and the Damier 30 recently. I decided the Mini Lin and told my friend. She said not to get it because her boss had one that RIPPED!!!!! Not only that but after she exchanged it for another. The 2nd one ALSO ripped. She eventually got a credit for the bag instead of getting another. Now I'm not sure as to where the rip was. I'll have to ask if she knows. I did a search in the forum and noticed that people had concerns for it but not that it ACTUALLY happened! Has this happened to any of you???? Since I didn't see any in tPF posting that problem I was thinking maybe since we're in NYC, she puts alot of things in her bag and that is why? But I am also in NYC and carry ALOT in my bags...and would risk the same problems? What do you guys think?
