Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you my newest bag I just picked up! It's the Rebecca Minkoff Full Size 5 Zip Rocker in the color Denim.
First off I need to mention, this bag is no longer in production. If you go to the RM site you will see that the only version of this that is now available is the Mini 5 Zip.
So you can compare the Mini 5 Zip and the Full Size 5 Zip Rocker that I have, we will start with the measurements.
Mini 5 Zip:
9" wide x 1.5" deep x 6.5" tall
Full Size 5 Zip Rocker:
11" wide x 2 1/2" deep x 8" tall
I was able to find this bag new with tags from a very reputable seller on eBay!
The dust bag is huge!
Other than size, another difference in my bag and the Mini 5 Zip is the leather strip that is woven in the strap. The bag now is just metal, no leather.
And even though the bag is still called the '5 Zip', the newer version only has 4 zips on it. Mine has the 5th zip on the back of the bag. I can't believe they done away with this zip pocket, as it is going to be so useful.
Both bags have the feet on the bottom.
The one good thing about the Mini 5 Zip is it's cheaper in price. The bag I have is so much larger, has the fully functional 5 Zips (which are actual pockets unlike the newer version) and it has the leather on the strap, all making it much more $$$. This bag retails for $330.
From what I understand the Mini 5 Zip has zippers just for looks, they are no longer pockets which is so sad! These pockets on mine are deep and will be so handy!
I think the back pocket is a total necessity, I can't believe they done away with it in the newer style. I'm really thankful that mine has it.
Big price difference, for good reason. The Full Size 5 Zip is a much larger bag.
To give you an idea how much each bag holds, I will show you inside of each with a RM zip around wallet.
This adorable little bag easily holds the wallet and has some room for extra stuff (cell phone, sunglasses, etc.).
The 5 Zip Rocker has tons of extra room. You could easily throw in an iPad mini, sunglasses (in a case), cellphone, cosmetic bag, etc. I will now show me wearing the bags for size comparison.
Long strap over one shoulder.
As a crossbody.
As with the Mini 5 Zip, this bag has a 21" drop or 14" doubled. You just slide the chain through and attach it as shown in pic below to wear as a shoulder bag. This is probably going to be my favorite way to wear this.
