Would you pay $600 more for a double flap than a single flap?

I'm going against the opinions expressed above for one simple reason. If you'd like your CF to retain its shape, go for a double flap. To minimize the weight, if that's an issue for you, carry less stuff inside.
This! Single flaps will sag. I sold mine as it got creased during travel and I packed it very well!

I like the look of the double flap because of the positioning of the grommets being different - so I think it sticks out more rather than lying flat on the body, which I think looks nice especially on taller people.
Personally I can’t handle the weight however so I would go a single flap. The double flap is more expensive on the pre loved market and I don’t think $600 is unreasonable.

I don't find double flap to be heavy or much heavier than single flap. Depends if you want to go for practicality vs aesthetic. Single flap is slightly lighter (I'm talking about a lb at most) and can hold more, but double flap holds its shape better, have a more structured look that I personally prefer, so yes I'd pay a little extra just so my bag would look nicer. If I want something lightweight and practical, I got my lululemon belt bag and uniqlo bag for that purpose.

Double Flap's for me all the way. Nothing against Single Flaps, I've just seen so many loose their shape and develop a point in the Flap which I personally don't care for. I like structure in my bags and I'd be paranoid through using a Single that it would slowly loose its shape over time.

I am hands down a single flap chick so very biased here in regards to which one I’d choose.

All of my jumbos are single flaps. I prefer the lightweightedness and the extreme ease of getting in and out of the bag. I use my flaps quite a bit these days — no sagging issues, but YMMV I suppose depending on how hard one is on their bags.

I have a few m/l flaps for size reasons — that double flap drives me nuts at times.
