I think the N/s is by far a much heavier bag than the cottom club which is made of very lightweight leather. The cotton club should also be able to hold more than the N/S. If I remember, there were some problems with the metal rings where the handles go into the bag on the cotton club tote. If that should happen, Chanel will fix it so it doesn't happen again, but just keep in mind that those rings could come loose. Both are GORGEOUS bags!
