Heya guys, This is my first post here, I've been a lurker here for the last month or so...so here's my story post: For my 25th birthday I decided I wanted to buy myself a Coach tote bag because: a) I wanted a lighter bag to carry around day-to-day b) that could work as a carryon travel bag c) well, i love the large signature print (My previous work bag is the Marc Jacobs Venetia ~boy it gets heavy with work stuff loaded in it!) So, after much internal debate, I decided to splurge and get the large signature reversible tote bag (#10025), I had to order it through the store since by the time I made my decision, the Coach stores removed it from their shelves. So I just got it today and after playing around with it, I am having second thoughts...it's a nice bag and carries my usual stuff (wallet, cosmetic bag, small notebook, cell, water bottle etc.) well... But I am wondering how'd it do if I took it on a trip (airline/car trip, etc) because if I carry a few mags/books I feel like it'll over burden my shoulder. The lack of inner pockets (and 1 zipper compartment) slightly bothers me. For the same price I paid for the reversible tote ($298), I just saw that Coach has released its new Signature Stripe Large Tote. It's bigger and it's got the legacy inner lining with inner pockets. Thing is, THAT THING IS HUGE! Looks like it could sub for a diaper bag. No doubt, that thing would work great for travel bag purposes but I'm not sure I could fill that sucker out for my day-to-day work/play. I saw TejasMama showed photos of this bag in this post here w/ photos included: http://forum.purseblog.com/coach/this-new-sig-stripe-tote-carries-ton-pics-137047.html I'm starting to wonder whether I should get that bag...ahhhh..I am so confused now. They're both the same price, part of me says get more bang for the buck but I dunno. Does anyone who owns the reversible signature tote have any input (and how they fit their stuff inside their totes would be helpful!). Also, any advocates for the large signature tote? Advice would be great!
