    Question Shoulder Strap For Speedy??

    It seems as I have been complaining about my Speedy 30 hurting/bruising my arm lately, so I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread about this controversial subject.

    I have been thinking about it since the week I purchased mine, several years ago, and still I have not yet made up mind.

    I know in the LV world it is a big NO, NO to attatch a longer strap on the Speedy, but would you consider it? I know that it does not have the hardware for attatching a long strap safely, but I am totally considering it.

    Thoughts??

    Lol, I was thinking the same about my MK astor. If it wasn't a satchel, I'd use it way more. But, I have no idea what type of strap I'd but on it? :rolleyes:

    To be honest, I wouldn't attach a strap to the speedy, but if you'd use it more and if it looks fine with a stap - do it.

    The SA's have always told me it was a NO, NO. They said that it was not designed for attatching a longer strap like say the Alma, which has the small rings for the strap.

    So do you attatch your strap to the brass on the handle?

    For me, I wouldn't attach a strap to my Speedy. But hey, do what makes you happy and comfortable!

    ^ ^ ^ I agree, I wouldn't put a strap on my speedy either. If I'm shopping and want a hassle free bag, I don't wear my speedy

    ^^^^^^^

    I do. Sometimes you need to be hands-free. Of course it wasn't designed that way, but it works for me....

    I think if it works for you, then go for it! Just as long as you feel more comfortable carrying it. But personally, I wouldn't attach a strap to my speedy!

    While on the strap subject, does anyone know the price of the mono strap? I tried to check online and did not find it...

    zombiegirl, why don't you take some stuff out of your bag? lol!! I know with bigger bags I tend to hoard absolutely everything possible! Try cleaning out all your junk and see if that makes a difference...

    also, i'm not sure why you'd need a strap..shopping maybe?? perhaps you should get a different bag when you're out doing strenuous activities. less pain AND a new bag!! You can't lose!! :thumbs up:
