There have been a lot of questions about the size of the new 228 re-issue, so I asked my dh if we could post pics of my Christmas and birthday gift--a 228--which isn't really mine yet! He agreed--sweet man that he is! Here they are--I'm 5'4. The 226 re-issue is the 2005 anniversary edition, and the 228 is the new version. I love them both! When I first saw the 228, I thought it was really huge, and it kind of is, but it's a "day bag" size. I can't wait until Christmas! 56 more days... Yikes--I just noticed there's dog hair on the floor! :shame: I guess that's just part of life at our house!
