Musette, is this a good bag?


Jan 15, 2006
It depends on what you mean by 'a lot of things'. I bought one for my mum, and she's happy about it. She puts the regular stuff in it, walet, keys, agenda,...
It's quite spacious, but of course not like a speedy. I find it's a bit restricted, in that way, if you put to much 'irregular formed' things in, it shows.
But as a regular hadbag, I would say, go for it!

Are you going to get the damier or the mono?

I just bought a musette last week and am in LOVE with it. i love the fact that you can sling it across your body and forget about it.

Every other Louis Vuitton that I own is a top handle bag (Sac Plat, Exentri-Cite, Multicolor Speedy). I love them all but they can be quite restricitve when shopping. :amazed: I always end up asking my boyfriend to hold it while I "look" at something.

I was in the mall today with my musette hands free, but still looking very fly with my bag. :biggrin:

I think this is my new favorite. True that you can over stuff it but i have packed a LOT of stuff in it and mine still lays flat.

I think that I am going to start buying shoulder LV bags from now on. VERY liberating. :love:

In short the musette is a GREAT bag and you MUST get it. Get it get it get it.

I have the musette salsa and love it. It is wonderful to have a hands-free bag. It's perfect for travel. Mine is smaller than what you're considering, and I can still fit a compact wallet, cell phone, powder compact, comb, and a few lipsticks. But, as Lia said, you don't want to stuff it too full or it will be shaped oddly. I'm sure there's quite a bit more room in the larger model, though. I say go for it!

I have the Musette Tango as well and love it.
It doesn't hold much though but it'd hold the essentials: wallet, phone, and some makeup. I wish I got the long strap as well.

I think the Musette is a great bag to have for those shopping days.
It's huge though! I've seen them irl. If it was a bit wider I would have used it for school.

Hi!! I am 21 and is considering purchasing my first big LV item this summer!!! I also considering the Damnier big musette cause I usually carry many things when I go out, cause I like to be prepared. I have tried on the bag before, and becuase I am 5'2 it looks alittle big on me, but I think I won't reget getting a bag with more space to put things in. It is selling for near $1000 Canadian, therefore I am actually quite nervous about getting it, cause I have saved up for a few months and don't want my money to go to waste. Does anyone else have any thoughts about this bag?? I really appreciate all reading all your comments and discussion.
