Here are some comparison pics of the Pochette Voyage MM in Monogram Eclipse and the traditional TP26 in Monogram canvas.

Although they are almost the same size, the Pochette Voyage is slightly larger.

It seems to be a little bit wider as well.

Oversized silver/gunmetal hardware on the PVMM. The TP26 features the traditional gold hardware.

The mat black leather trim of the PVMM peaks above the TP26. There is a lot of leather detailing on the PVMM.

A very important difference is that the Pochette Voyage MM has a more structured shape with a hard bottom, hence stands on its own easily. On the other hand, the TP26 is not structured.

The vachette leather tab on the TP26 has been replaced by a black leather tab with a big Louis Vuitton rivet hardware. IMG_0813.JPG

The interior of the TP26 is Vuittonite lining (washable) in classic beige. The interior of the PVMM is black fabric and black leather with six credit card slots and a flat pocket, which will fit a large smartphone.

Now that I have had a little bit of time to play with it, I can say that the Pochette Voyage MM is a very nice item. It's definitely more of a bag, while the TP26 is truly a cosmetic pouch. The hardware details, the leather trim and leather side panels, and the great inside organization contribute to its sophisticated look. The price difference is substantial but well worth it in my opinion.

I use my monogram tp26 as a catch all in larger bags but I think the pochette voyage would look great as a clutch, especially with the interior pockets

I agree. I use my TP26 in large bags and in luggage to organize random stuff. I m going to use the Pochette Voyage as a smaller bag that can transition from pouch to clutch.

Hmm... so this was in the box under the Christmas tree :P
In the end... it was indeed the Pochette Voyage MM! :smile:
I wish they would create a Pochette Voyage GM like the Nemeth last year. It would be a great format for me.

You're always so informative and we really do appreciate it. I have the PV in ME and could not be happier with it. My SA gave me a silver lock for the rivet. I love the silver hardware and the huge zipper pull. Thanks again for all you do.

For us all. That would have been super cool, but this is very nice too.

I was thinking about ordering a black dragonne with SHW as a spare part (from another men's clutch) and add it to the PV.
I like the dragonne on my Pochette Orsay and I miss that on this bag.

Good idea. I think that would look great on this bag. I've seen your Pochette Orsay with the dragonne and it is totally dignified. Please post a pic if you do, would love to see it.
