  1. Can anyone tell me if they have the floppy handles problem on their SBS and if they do anything to solve it? My bag is 2 1/2 years old and now the front handle won’t stay up. The padlock slides down and swings from the centre of the front handle. It’s a shame there isn’t an additional strap for holding them up like the Cara has. Sometimes I don’t mind but I’d really prefer it to look the way it was intended. Is a bag scarf the answer?
     
  2. The handles on mine have started to flop over some but I’ve embraced it. I’m now actually training the back handle to fold down some.

  3. Mine flop, but I cross the handles over together at the top and they stay upright for some time
     
  4. I think the “flop” is unavoidable, tbh ... I find the padlock swinging down very annoying - I’ve moved mine to the rear belt.

  5. The rear belt? What do you mean?

    I moved my clochette to the side expanding strap so it doesn’t interfere with the opening and closing of the bag.

  6. That’s what I meant (albeit put very badly!) The “rear” but was because it’s behind me when I’m carrying it, but it’s actually the left side strap! ‍♀️
