I've not seen an Ellipse fan club here unlike the Speedy and the Alma. I've been thinking of buying an Ellipse but I would like to know how convenient (inconvenient) is it to use -- like when you are out shopping is it too cumbersome to open up the zippers ? Does the MM hold a lot of stuff as compared to a Mono Speedy 30, for instance ? Thanks a lot in advance to you gals. Am just getting too itchy for my next LV purchase !
