I recently got to handle the Chanel Jumbo XL in black lambskin and gold hardware, and it rocked my world a little. Everything about this bag is glamorous and oh-so-luxurious! This bag's beauty has to be shared; check out my review of this amazing purse!
This bag probably shouts "CHANEL" more than any other bag I've handled. A huge bag in smooth, glossy black lambskin... and then, there's the huge hardware! Gold hardware against black lambskin is like chrome on a black luxury car. It just looks polished and decadent!
The Chanel Jumbo XL Flap is in a very similar size as the Chanel Maxi Flap.
Chanel Jumbo XL - 13.5 x 9 x 4 inches
Chanel Maxi - 13 x 9 x 4 inches
The biggest difference between these two popular bags, is the hardware. The Jumbo XL is no longer being made by Chanel and has huge CC's, making it extremely striking and coveted.
The Chanel flap bags are extremely functional and easy to use. The back pocket is extremely convenient for cell phones. And, it's definitely roomy; the Chanel Jumbo XL is quite large and can hold a lot more than anything I would ever carry. And, even when it's mostly empty, it keeps great shape.
The straps on the Jumbo XL can be singled for a longer strap, or doubled. To be honest, I think this large bag looks strange when the strap is worn singled. :P
For size reference, I'm a very average 5 foot 5 inches in height.
