I have a quilted black flap from 1996. It measures 13 inches wide, 9 inches high, and 3.75 inches deep. The strap drop (it is a doubled strap) is about 12 inches.
I always assumed it was a Maxi but now I am confused. I see terms like Jumbo, XL Jumbo, Maxi, New Maxi, etc. I did find a size reference thread but I think it is for new bags.
Can you tell me what bag I have?

In the future, if you're unsure post pics in this thread: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel/help-identify-this-chanel-422984-218.html

From your description, I think you have the vintage XL jumbo. It's no longer available in stores. Chanel re-introduced this back in '08 ---it's called the "maxi" & has no double flap on the inside. Currently, Chanel added an extra flap on the inside to its jumbo & maxi, so you'll see us use the term "new maxi" to distinguish it from the old version. Check out the reference library to see how this bag has changed over time. HTH

I concur with queenofchic. I have Jumbo XL and its size is smaller than Maxi and larger than Jumbo
