I've been reading through posts over the past few days, trying to decide on a bag to purchase. I recently bought a purple haze Self Portrait, which I've decided to return. I love the color but the bag style isn't going to work for me. As much as I love the feel of the plush leather, the first thing that sticks out in my head about the plush as compared to the crunch is how will it handle the rain? I know that the rain seems to roll right off of my crunch leather, but wonder whether the plush will do as well. I'd love to hear other comments about the plush leather, especially because I just read some posts which suggest that some have decided that plush doesn't work for them. TIA.
