Hey girls, remember me with the tribeca patent issues, well, now i am paranoid and when i use it i am always wanting to be extra careful and i am thinking of returning it again for the Kristin Tote with no zipper the button closure, i posted pics of both. I have some money left over from ebay sells of some things of mine and want to know ur opinion i would save due to F&F sale at Macy's so what u think?? I know the size comparison for both is completely different both they're both totes. Also, the leathers are different. I would like a tote and have boiled it down to these two. Please be honest thanks :biggrin: If u say neither why??

Tribeca- is good to go out

Kristin- can be used for school for mini laptop and to be casual

I could be biased and say go w/ But I think you should go with the Kristin, since the Tribeca started cracking on you, I would be paranoid it would happen again with a new bag [tribeca] too. I haven't seen Kristin IRL, but I love the photos I've seen of it. Kristin's a great bag too!!!

^^ thanks that is excatly how i feel, not that i don't love it just paranoid now, i went with hubby to the mall and i kept looking at it weird i know to make sure nothing would happen to it, luckily i have no issues with this bag right now, but i'm thinking of it future wise :confused1:

Oh the tribeca is beautiful, but the Kristin is so timeless. I only wish I could have either one and you are a lucky girl. I really like the Kristin closure and shape, but both are beautiful. Either way you have great taste and wear what you choose in good health and great Coach mind!:yahoo:

Kristin seems to be far and beyond a better quality bag that you won't have to worry about using. I would be so worried about the Tribeca cracking. Plus after seeing the pictures of this bag on Eva Longoria Parker & Hallie Berry- I am in love with it! Good luck deciding!

19coach41; thanks for the compliment & thoughts :biggrin:

I do love this bag and would like to keep her and not spend the extra money, but i had an issue on an earlier post about the bag peeling already and i was very sad about it,:sad:.

thanks girls for the thoughts!!!

to be honest, I think I rather pay the difference for a bag that will last a lot longer and i don't have to keep returning bags and not being happy with my purchase. Especially for the price of these bags this shouldn't be happening.

hmmm....those are two very different's like apples and oranges...I have the tribeca tote and wish to get the kristin

I think if you are weary of the patent, then I would go with the can be used for business/school's very simple yet classy
