Hi ladies - well, I took the plunge and listened to those of you who said you love, love, love your coffers! I received my plum coffer today (large size) and have a few questions. First, does the bag relax at all after use? Mine seems kind of stiff??? Also, i seem to like it carried by the braided strap better - the long strap seems so....long. Any way to shorten it? I feel like I'm carrying a briefcase! I do have some bigger bags - but this just seems...bulky? Am I just not feeling the love? Did you all love yours immediately? Thanks so much you guys! I really appreciate your responses. And, the lock seems to work quite easily.
