RN: the 'medium' Flo satchel is heavy. I don't think your would enjoy it today as a walking around
handbag. :sad:

And yes, the strap width on the Flo satchels changes as you go from
the largest satchel (medium 15" length) down to the small (13" length) and to the mini (11"length).
The narrower straps get a lot of complaints from those who carry the bags on their shoulders
or crossbody. Even tho the small and mini Flo satchels are much lighter than the medium,
they are still relatively heavy handbags. The weight of the leather and all your items compressed
into a smaller space seems to make the width of the shoulder/crossbody more important.

Of course the less you carry, the lighter the bag seems. But by the time I add my keys and
cellphone even an otherwise empy nylon crossbody handbag is heavy and uncomfortable for me
because the strap is thin.

Hi LJ,
I'm sure you're right. I was thinking of pulling out my Olivia satchel when I get back to my DD's but I remember how it was heavier than I wanted to carry walking. I walked over three miles with it when my BFF came for a visit in 2016 and I remember halfway through our walk I was wishing I could leave it somewhere and have it delivered the rest of the way home. :lol: And I don't think I was carrying much. I can imagine how Florentine leather will weigh me down.
