I have a defective Pochette Metis currently waiting for a replacement and am 6th on the waiting list. I am nervous that the new Pochette Metis will end up having same (melting glazing, ew!) or other problems down the line. Also I don't know how long I have to wait (already almost 1 month). Recently I'm entertaining the idea to exchange it for the Palm Springs backpack in PM size instead. But I'm super scared I will regret not waiting for the Pochette Metis (I purchased it before price increase). At the same time I'm crazy about the Palm Springs PM but worried I will regret it later too (due to backpacks being too trendy and out of fashion later). Plus there are not too many reviews about the Palm Springs PM so it makes it harder to decide. Please Help!
