Saddlebag iPad Sling
I bought this bag for travel and to use as a purse when I arrived. I have a large wallet from Levenger and it crowds my other bags. I would like a bit more security on the clasp and inside pocket perhaps but all in all it is great.

A few snaps shy of greatness
I had my eye on this for a while and it was given to me as a gift. It looks great, feels great, but the fit is not as secure as I would want. It slides a little more than one might expect when turning one's torso. This is not a game changer. My caveate is that if the bag tilts to much or even turns upside down, the smaller contents may fall out. The compartments are also unsecured and provides negative opportunities when traveling. A great bag that missed a few security measures. A few snaps or zippers shy of greatness.

Classy & cool
Extremely satisfied with my ownership of this saddle sling bag, a dream fulfilled after wishing it for years. Pricey, yes, but class and quality cannot be compromised. This product can probably be improved on by making the sling just a little bit longer, say 3" more. Shipment is secured and accurate as declared upon purchase.

I have been looking for a quality leather bag that I could use for travel. This is the one. It fits nicely over your shoulder and stays there, does not slip off and holds all that you need as a carry-on when traveling. My I-Pad, glasses, wallet, and phone plus room for a few extras fit neatly in the bag. When you reach your destination it serves as a purse that looks good and is easy to use.
Another quality product from Levenger.

Not just for ipad and not just for men
I have been looking for a high quality bag that will carry a Microsoft Surface tablet. IPad bags are too small and those that are large enough are typically too large, usually designed for a 13 inch lap top. This bag, although labeled as an iPad sling, fits the Surface perfectly. (there is no room to spare so if your tablet is longer than a Surface RT, it will not fit. A slightly wider or thicker tablet should be OK) The leather is good quality, and interior and exterior pockets are well placed and a good size. I would have liked an interior zippered pocket, but that's my only suggestion for improvement. Overall, I love this bag!

Fifteen Years Never Disappointed
I recently handled and carefully inspected this bag at the retail location at Tyson's. Again, this is careful craftsmanship along the Tussing line of leathers. Since a retail store was involved, I hesitated; then, when we received a twenty percent off coupon, I immediately knew what I wanted. So, it hasn't arrived yet, but I feel I can honestly appraise this article, without hesitation. This is now over 15 years that I have been ordering from Steve and Doreen. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed. This all started back in 1997 as a young lawyer, I could barely afford their Waterman Phieas, back in the days when fountain pens were the new (old) thing. Since that time I have gone through the Rhodes Scholar folio, the larger folio, and countless golden tortoises rollerball. And then I saw something happen, slowly, but happen. What I knew was a great store already, slowly emerged into one of those classically conservative American staple stores of quality. In the league of LL Bean, Orvis, perhaps Brooks before the Italians bought them. My point is even in a bad economy (or perhaps more so, given conservative principles), people will pay a little bit more for quality when they know it will last.
