Hermes Togo Birkin 30 Bag
I’ve received quite a few emails and questions about how much a 30cm Birkin can fit versus a 35cm, and whether each fit more or less than a Chanel bag, etc. A sweet reader (hi Andrea!) suggested that I do a post showing how much could fit in my two Hermes bags, and I thought that was a great idea! Here goes, and I hope this is helpful. A disclaimer that I tried to show a true representation of what I fit into each bag, and I tend to just “throw” my things into my bags – I’m not one of those people who do some kind of Tetris puzzle solution to try to fit the maximum amount of stuff. I’m sure if you were were organized than me, you could fit more.
left to right: 35cm Hermes Birkin, 30cm Hermes Birkin, Chanel jumbo bag
In case it isn’t self explanatory, the 35cm and 30cm for the Birkins refer to the length of the base of the bag – the 35 looks and is a LOT bigger though!
Chanel (single flap) Jumbo
So I thought I would do a progression of items – this is what I usually fit into a Chanel jumbo. My makeup bag, iPhone, little notebook, mints, long wallet, and sunglass case.
Hermes 30cm Birkin
The same fits comfortably into a 30cm Birkin…but I also add a large scarf/wrap/cardigan usually, and a magazine to read. Here, it’s The Economist because I am *ahem* Highly Intellectual. You could also probably fit an iPad or something similar and a bottle of water.
Lots of room to spare – I don’t like filling to the top, the bag looks like a big stuffed rectangle then and it’s easy for pickpockets to grab your stuff.
Hermes 35cm Birkin
Now the 35cm…you can see I have everything that was in the 30cm, plus a beverage (love sparkling apple juice!). And I’m not actually an intellectual who reads The Economist – I’m actually a poser because I much prefer reading Bridget Jones Diary..!! The 35 fits an extra book easily. It could also probably fit a laptop and more.
As you can see, there’s TONS of room to spare. The bag can easily fit in addition – papers for work, a laptop/tablet, and some snacks too. That’s what I usually add to it for travel/work. But the bag is way, way heavier! Even empty the 35cm probably weighs 2-3 lbs more than the 30cm – the 35 is not only larger but also made of a heavier leather. Here are a few more pictures of the bag with a laptop inside.
