I just bought the Speedy B 30 in Damier Ebene, made in France. It hasn't even been one month yet, and my shoulder strap is starting to peel! I'm so heartbroken because I really love this bag! I'm really worried now that even if I get it replaced I may encounter this problem again.. And with quality issues, who knows if it'll be on my handles next time. So, the question is, should I get this bag replaced or should I get another style? The speedy is such an iconic piece and I really do want it, but let me know what you guys think. The other bag I will get if I don't get this will be the Metis hobo. Thank you!!

Replace it. I bought mine recently too, last dec but it has carried loads & no problems & still look brand new. I read about their never full de handles peeling but rarely for speedys cos the handles are much thicker.

Agreed - have them give you a new strap. I've had no issues with my Ebene Keepall handles or strap. The peeling/cracking issues are definitely most associated with the Neverfull. Yours is probably just defective. Good luck!

I'm having problems with mine as well and just purchased it a week ago. I was wondering if the handles feeling rough immediately after use was normal? It is annoying me but I purchased the bag 5.5 hours away and not sure about returning. TIA

Are you having problems with the strap and handles?
