    How easy is it to keep Linen clean?

    I'm wondering about an LCB in linen/navy. I've always loved the look of the linen, but I assumed it would be hard to keep clean. Do you folks who have this color, find keeping it clean to be a problem?

    I've never ever had a problem with keeping my Linen/Steel SCB clean. Like ever. And this baby has gotten dragged through the muddy backstreets of Berlin, mind you.

    Same. I am using mine now ...for a year? (have to check) and use it daily and its exposed to many hazards and it is very dirt repellent! If ever I felt it needed a wash I just handwashed it and it came out like new.
    I was concerned about dirt too at the beginning, but it is not an issue for me.

    I asked the same question when I was considering a Linen/Steel SCB. I was using a Keen bag that was similar shade to linen, and I found it was picking up the dye from my blue jeans! I was assured the linen SCB would stand up to stains, and the SCB really looked to be the replacement bag I'd been searching for. I've had it for over a year now and use it daily, and there's no sign of any denim blue rubbing off on it!

    I've only had my linen SCB for a few weeks, but have already gotten some stains on it that wiped clean with water.

    Thanks everyone! I thought about it, and I'm going to hold off for now. Nothing against the bag, I believe it's probably wonderful, but I'm craving it only a mild amount. I'm very happy with my other cafe bags, and I want to save my pennies for what might be presented to us in June! There might be something that's way beyond a mild craving, something that says, "You need to own me, NOW." I'm sure everyone can relate to this feeling, hahaha!

    I love my Linen/Steel MCB bag because the color goes with everything. My only concern with the bag was the initial impression that it was too small, which I got over by putting it in use as a daily carry overseas. But, if you're ever not sure about a color, the best thing to do is order it in an organizer pouch to test drive it. I love Linen so much I was delighted to score one recently in an OP to add to the collection (Indigo is still the best OP color in my opinion though).

    There's going to be 5 new items...
    I'm more terrified it's going to be "You need to own US ALL, NOW."

    Oh, totally - this is why I have three sizable orders waiting for items that are on backorder! And if there's a new FJN with a padded pocket for an iPad Mini, there is No Way I'll be able to resist...
