Ahhh, I see! Yes, mine is sort of like that too...I don't think mine was ever used before, it's spotless inside. I'm just trying to rotate my bags so that they're equally loved and used. It's hard because I have so many but not nearly as many as you!!I love them both the same! I have been using this one more. The bag was never used and really stiff when I first got it. I’m just trying to break it in more.
