I am still in shock over being able to get my hands on a Fuschia Denim Neo Speedy... However, I think I may be acting irrationally. It seems like the koala locks get scratched over time and with use. So, instead of carrying around a bag that has its brass pieces all scuffed up I have decided to never use the front pockets. I use the front zip but not the small twin pockets on the front. Am I crazy? Did I just spend that much on a bag which I am not using to it's full potential? I have noticed from pics that some people use the pockets while it appears that others do not. Please vote in my poll as to what you would do. Does anyone have recommendations or advice? TIA!
