Only the first set of US made Devotes had grommets. I don't think there is any rhyme or reason to it. I think it was more of a trial and error process. When the first batch of China & US devotes came out the US ones had grommets and the China ones didn't. Then the US factory started making them without (like the China factory). Personally, I think they look better without and maybe they thought so as well. Just a guess. Or at the very least they wanted to keep consistent with the other factory.RM Maven
Just a question regarding the Devote tote. Why do some of the belts have grommets on them while others do not?
Anyway, off the top of my head, the devotes that had grommets were: Nautical Blue, Cranberry, early plain black, Cream BW, Chocolate BW .. I think that is all..?
