The Hampstead is a great low maintenace bag. I have the Ebene MM size and it can be a little boxy and stiff at times but it's a bag you don't see very often and it always looks new. I use mine more in the Fall/Winter months or when it's raining. I also find that it makes a great work bag because it can hold quite a bit, doesn't scream LV and still looks professional and classy at the same time. GL with whatever you decide.
