Thank you for your input...it is a hard decision to make! Both are so nice but I do know what you mean about the opening of the speedy 25...I almost forgot about that..I have both and like the Pochette Metis the best. It's so easy to get items in and out. The opening for the Speedy Bandoliere is so small, I'm alway scraping things on the zipper. Hope this helps.
Pouchette Métis gets my vote. The speed B just seems to sit very awkwardly worn as a Crossbody just my opinion.
I know what you mean about it's shape (well there lack of) of the speedy when worn crossbody. I think crossbody bags look best flat or close to the body like the Bloomsbury, odeon or pm...I like the pochette métis cause it's a little more modern looking as opposed to the odeon or saumur...
Thank you for this link..I will check it out
