I suppose i am on the fence about it because of my petite frame. If i wear it cross body my husband makes fun of me because it covers my whole back! ( it never seems to sit on my side, always shifts to the back) and if i wear it with the shorter straps up on my arm, it isn't that functional to get things in and out of without moving it to the crook of your arm.I don't know why they discontinued it either but I think it is a fantastic bag! I had a pm but felt it was too small so I returned it. I wish they still sold them.
