I just received my FIRST RM bag today, a MAB in black with pewter metallic trim. I absolutely love it and can't wait to wear it out. I have a question about the hardware ring in the front and bag of the bag (above the outside pocket). Are these just decorative, or are the meanth to be hooks for a cross-body or over the shoulder strap? Just curious.

Thanks in advance, all!

I think they could be used as hooks for an across the body strap. My MAM is too smooshy though and when I tried it the bag twisted a little because the rings are on opposite sides of the zipper and it just looked like I was hurting the bag. There is a thread where people have tried every possible strap configuration so I would search for that if you are interested. Personally I would undo the lobster claws and try attaching a strap to those and see what happens if you are interested in wearing it across the body. Hope that helps.

they don't come with them unfortunately, but if you wanted one you could order it from the RM site under "shop" then go to accessories. ;)

I use it to clip my keys to when I'm just running in some place really quickly. (You have to use a keychain with a clip, like Coach's or Hayden-Harnett's).
