I've been looking through my collection for the past days and have been wondering which style of the mini's is better than the other. Recently, I've found myself thinking about purchasing a mini mac in the same color as the one I currently have in a mini 5 zip.... But having the same color of bag in a similar style is what is stopping me. Frankly for me, I can't seem to decide which style is better... The Mini Mac or The Mini 5 Zip. What do you think? Which style reigns supreme over the other? :smile:

Hehe for me I prefer the mini 5 zip as it gives off an edgey vibe which I love! Also the zips on the mini 5 zip is more accessible and I can store more stuff in it!

For mini mac, the clasp is kinda annoying to get to so I usually don't use that smaller compartment which leaves me a smaller space to put in my stuff!

MINI 5 ZIP WINS!!

However for the regular size 5 zip and Mac, I'd prefer the mac design. 5 zip in regular size just looks too weird!

Thank you for your input! You are right though, the mini zip does look more edgy which I really enjoy :smile: Oh but they are both so gorgeous hehe

I just bought my first RM bag in January and now I have 6! I have 3 mini 5 zips and 3 mini macs...I'm obsessed! I have the 5 zip in almond and am thinking of exchanging it for the Mac...I just feel like with all the zippers it's a lot going on on such a small bag and I may get tired of it. I can't make up my mind! So I guess I'm no help in answering your question cause I can't decide either! lol.

It's so addicting isn't it! I currently have 4 mini zips, 3 mini macs, 2 mini Elles, 1 Hudson and I only started Last August. It's like candy, it's crazy! I can't make up my mind between the mini mac and mini zip either! I love zippers but I also love the lobster clasp! :woot:

OOHH, you have a mini Elle!! How does the size compares to the mini mac and the mini 5 zip?? That's one in my wish list for sure!

It's definitely bigger than a mini mac and 5 zip. It's boxier. It's petite but it can fit a lot of things. One thing though is that it is heavier than the mini mac and zip and you can't take the long strap out, but I use it with the long strap so it doesn't matter to me. I have to say among all my RM's, The Elle is my favorite :hbeat: But alas, I still don't have the one mini Elle that I want, the iridescent!

You read my mind! I feel exactly the same way about the two in the two sizes.

I have a mini 5 zip and several regular MAC...the functionality of these two in these two sizes just wins. It's the little things :smile:

Yay high five! I'm considering selling off my mini mac and getting a regular mac because it's just not very practical to have a bag that has only one assessable compartment :sad:
