A while back, there was a discussion on this topic and someone proposed making a chart. Today, a lovely tPF member asked my opinion on the difference in weight between an older clemence and box 35 Birkin. I decided to find out. The results were unexpected and interesting (I thought) so for anyone who is interested...here are weights in grams, of various 35 Birkins, heaviest first...

Clemence range: 1209 - 1271 g (the heaviest one is from 2006)
Togo 1122
Barenia (2003) 1120
Ostrich 1106
Crinolin/Barenia 1058
Box (2007) 1049

That's right...box is the lightest. Lighter than the crinolin/barenia combo, which is lined in fabric.

So, if anyone was looking for an excuse to get box...!

Thank you, Katel! I should have included the conversion.

(...thoughts of a raisin box Birkin need to be suppressed about now...)

ITA with your weights: Box is definately the lightest, and what REALLY surprised me, is that Barenia isn't as heavy as it's made out to be, in fact it's lighter than my Clemence Birkins and also lighter than my Vache Naturelle Birkin!

Interesting, thanks for that. Was this including locks, clochettes and all the rest?

Compared to my other non-H bags I find that my box birk can get quite heavy, I'm not sure I'd want something even heavier.
