The Speedy is a bag that almost literally anyone will recognize. From the canvas design to the shape of the purse, it is timeless, chic and also very practical which I believe is the core reason why it is as prominent as it is. Even more practical than the original Speedy is the Speedy Bandoulière because anything is more utilitarian with a strap slapped on it.

Speedy B 35: 13.8 x 9.1 x 7.1 inches
Speedy B 40: 15.7 x 9.8 x 7.5 inches
Closure: Zip closure
Material: Coated canvas, vachetta leather (monogram) or treated leather (damier ebène and azur)
Straps: two top handles with 3 inch drop, adjustable and removable strap
I prefer the damier ebène print in the 30 size for several reasons. Firstly, the print is more muted than the monogram and although I do like the monogram, I find the damier ebène print to be more classy. Second, the treated leather is more durable, less prone to staining and barring any disaster, looks new for a very long time. The 30 size is the perfect everyday size bag. The Speedy is deceptively small at first glance, but most are surprised how much will fit into them. I find this size to have a nice shape even without a lot of items in it which is important to me because I’m not a fan of the Speedy slouch that some like.

You can’t go wrong with this purse. It’s durable, beautiful and if you get tired of it, it holds its value very well so rest assured that you can sell it for a good price. I plan on taking the damier ebène bandoulière 30 to an upcoming trip to Disneyland because its so lightweight, durable, easy to carry and (more importantly) chic as well, which tells you that you don’t need to baby these bags. I’m not saying to strap it to the back of you car and drag it through a bed of glass and nails, but my LV canvas and even more so my LV damier canvas are the most dependable bags.
