I apologize in advance for the picture quality and resolution. This was taken with my iPhone on an overcast day. Click on the pictures to make it larger.

Great comparison pics. They are quite similar. By the way, your hardwood floor is immaculately maintained. Wow. :tup:

thanks everyone! i think the Boston is a worthy successor to the old Montaigne if BV is going to do away it. the Boston has a similar vibe... perhaps a little more buttoned up. my only complaint, and it's not much of one, is that the opening feels a tad more cramped than the old Montaigne's. i think the zippers are the same length and it might just be a function of the Boston being a little taller and narrower.

i had the bag a while. i wanted to get something in Steel - i love the color - and figured i can kill 2 birds with one stone and get the new style too :P
