Coach tote vs. Banana Republic hobo

I'm perpetually in search of the perfect, white spring/ summer bag, and here are two top contenders. If these two almost-identical bags went head-to-head, the Banana Republic Bedford Hobo (left) wins over Coach's Pebbled Leather Tote (right). The soft pebbled leather finish is identical, both have quality hardware, and a similar shape. But my vote goes to the BR Bedford Hobo because not only is it larger, but it's $170.00 less. Sorry, Coach!
