LV Rivington GM Drop
The drop on the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Rivington handle is ten inches and fits perfectly under my arm. I love that I can easily pull one strap on and off while the other remains in place on my shoulder. If I am carrying my LV Rivington on my arm then I can easily drape one strap across or off my arm and access what I have inside my handbag.
Zippers and Hardware
There is a lot to love about Louis Vuitton handbags, but one thing that stands out the most is the hardware and zippers. They are of supreme quality and glide easily, many times one handed. The fake Louis get harder and harder to spot visually but once you get your hands on the zippers and hardware you can tell whether it is a fake or authentic Louis.
The gold on the Rivington GM offers a rich and classy feel to handbag when paired with the Damier Ebene canvas. Because of this color, the bag works beautifully for a night out if you need to take it from day to evening.
I adore the tufted detailing on the sides of the Louis Vuitton Rivington; the detailing catches the eye and after years of wear and love, they still look like new and hold their shape perfectly. I guess that is one of the reasons I love the Rivington so much.
It is not seen on every arm in Southern California, which is saying A LOT, for this Midwest girl. And the details are subtle yet elegant on the bag.
The Straps on the Louis Vuitton Rivington
The most common question I get via email and YouTube is about whether my straps are “sharp” on my Rivington GM. They were when I got the bag, but not much different than my other Louis Vuitton handbags.
The difference really is that the Damier Ebene straps didn’t soften to butter like the straps on my Louis Vuitton Monogram bags. However, that being said, the bag is not uncomfortable in any way, shape, or form to carry.
The straps fall nicely over or around the bag and have not shown the slightest signs of wear over the years. I puffy heart my LV Rivington GM.
What Can you Fit Inside the Louis Vuitton Rivington GM?
The Louis Vuitton Rivington GM measures 15″ L x 7″ W x 9″ H. The interior patch pocket is actually a very good size and can hold my phone and keys or a few random things. I normally prefer more interior and exterior pockets on my handbags but the Rivington GM is simply a classic and stylish piece.
I could not resist – to me it has old school charm and is on par with the classic look of the Speedy, but with a bit more personality.

I wanted to ask you some questions about the lV damier canvas rivington. 1. How big in the inside? Is it as big as the speedy 30 or 35? I would like to purchase but need a big bag since I have a 2 yr old. I can fit all my stuff in speedy 35 not 30 too small. Can you describe how much can go inside bag. Thanks- Blessings- Zaida
Did you look at the measurements on LV’s site? I love it because I can fit so much. It is very close to the Speedy 35 in how it feels when packed so you should really love it! Did you see the video on YouTube where I packed it up? http://youtu.be/-ajdjEWSfYE

Honestly Dora, they are my two favorite bags! 🙂 I bought the Totally thinking it would not be a keeper and it is my most abused and loved bag along with the Rivington. Which one are you leaning towards? I have your email and will reply today. Thank you for stopping in and sharing your handbag love!
