Hi everyone!
I have the onthego bag now for a week and live to use it but there is 1 problem it is so heavy my shoulder hurts like hell. And I only have keys, phone a wallet and a couple lipsticks in it. Does anyone have the same problem, and is there something you do about it?

I purchased the OnTheGo during the summer and haven't had a problem with mine, but I'm also a big girl. 5'10 and 185lbs. I also use mine for travel only and it's usually filled with my DSLR, computer, phone, wallet, sunglasses, you name it, it's in there, and I generally use both straps.

Sounds like this bag is not working for you and that you should sell it.

Maybe a much thicker strap if you do not want to sell? I would consider the basic monogram and leather strap ($495 USD.). It’s wide and short so reduces the pull on your shoulders and you can wear crossbody. I know your pain. I could not consider this bag either because of the weight. Let us know what you decide.

I agree the Onthego is very heavy and the straps are pretty thin for the size and weight of it. I love the bag and think it’s gorgeous but it doesn’t work for me as an everyday bag. I primarily use it for travel now. I just took it on a plane as my personal item and was able to fit so much into it. I fit 2 smaller bags, a pair of shoes, my makeup bag, wallet, phone, iPad, etc. I used to love big totes but since I’ve been working from home, I no longer need to lug a lot of things around with me when I leave the house so I stick with my NeoNoe or Alma for every day and leave the Onthego for trips.
