I bought the black Ali during Macy's F&F, took it home, put all my stuff in it, carried it around and decided it was too heavy. The hardware is huge! It was so heavy my shoulder hurt. I returned it for the black Ergo Hobo. I am in love with the soft, squishy leather! I saw my reflection in a window and thought the hobo looked pretty hot! Am I in the minority in thinking the Ali is too heavy and the Ergo is a better bag? I think I want the Ergo hobo in red too!
