Ok so I ordered a black/black sig carly sunday. It arrived today. I got home, ripped open the box, untied the ribbon and pulled my Carly out of the bag. I held it up to look at it and heard "squeak squeak". :tdown:

Does your carly handle squeak? NONE of the Carly's in the store that I have seen squeaked at all.
I don't want the bag if it squeaks.
I have a legacy shoulder with much wider leather and bigger hardware and it doesnt' make ANY noise.

Please tell me -- Does your Carly squeak, and if it did, did it go away?
I am afraid to use the bag because if the squeaking doesn't go away, I won't use it.

Thanks!

Yes, both of mine squeak. BUt it should squeak less as the leather straps soften up. The 2 pieces of leather together on the strap and the tight fit with the brass rings are what makes it squeak. I kinda like it :P

I couldn't decide between the blk carly and the black shoulder zip. I chose carly. I'm wondering if I should've got the legacy zip. I'm just not sure I can deal with the squeak - even if it does go away in a few months. I may go batty before then. *sigh*

I think i will be getting the shoulder zip afterall. Maybe I got too caught up in the carly hype. I do LOVE my friends Carly and I never noticed hers squeaking at all. Maybe I'll bring it by the store and see what they say. I'm torn.

I think someone suggested taking moisturizer and putting on the straps and around the rings and stuff. That mades sense to me like it would work. I wouldn't get rid of your Carly if I were you. I like them better than the shoulder zip and it probably holds more. The squeaking will go away eventually but try the moisturizer trick first !
