Bloomsbury Bookbag Stocked with Tools
I have 3 of these sweet bags. One for the gym, another for everyday and lastly one for when I fly. I love all the pockets inside and out! Excellent quality people comment on it all the time. Great purchase!

Casual but Attractive
I purchased my bag in blue. It's a nice shade of blue; I thought it might look a little too casual (like blue jeans) but it's very attractive. Not too casual at all. I used it today for carrying my large Bible and bible study notebook as well as my fat wallet and my checkbook. I stashed a set of keys in one pocket, my cell phone in another and still had four pockets left over to fill. I like the size - not too big, not too small. I also like that the handles aren't so long that it hangs down at my knee level. I haven't used the shoulder strap yet, but I like the fact that it's removable. Overall, it's a very well made bag. The inside material is heavier than I thought it might be so it should hold up well. If I were to change one thing about it, I might add a nice sturdy zipper for security but then it wouldn't be able to hold as much. For the purpose I used it today, it was perfect. Fortunately, I was able to get the bag while it was on sale, so for the price it was well worth it.

I first bought the Levenger Metro Messenger bag, and wanted another. The site was unable to find it. But I found the above mentioned bag. It was the color and material I was looking for. However, there is nothing to close the bag with. I know it;s a book bag, but I bought it as a purse (bag)) And have been trying to come up with something to close the bag with ever since. Still like the bag. But I really need to be able to close it.

I love this bag. It was difficult for me to find a bag with all of the features I wanted, but this bag has it all. The strap is easily adjustable for short people (I'm 5'2"). The strap stays on my shoulder even when I'm wearing "slippery" clothing. The size is great - large enough for multiple files, small laptop or notebook, and odds and ends. Side pockets are roomy and tall enough to keep things from falling out and are large enough for a sturdy water bottle. End pockets are a nice fit for a smart phone - snug enough to keep it in place but not so snug that it's difficult to reach in for the phone. The bag is VERY well made and sturdy, but not heavy.

Purple bloomsbury bookbag
Love this bag. Have used it daily since it arrived. The only improvement would be to have a manner of closure, to keep things secure and more private. I have resorted to tying a cord through the grommets on bag top in the middle! May actually try to make a bag liner in purple out of fabric stiff enough that it would not just collapse when used. Still thinking about this. I know you have taken the design further with other bookbags offered, providing zip closure. I was attracted to the color, and all the pockets. Pockets are deep enough that I don't worry about items being easily seen or appropriated. But the main compartment needs more security. I will figure something out. Love the shoulder strap, perfect size to accommodate ipad and other necessities. Thank you!

Bloomsbury Book Bag RED
I bought the tan one years ago - and use it every week - I love it. Then I saw it now comes in red and has a shoulder strap - two great improvements. Best Bag Ever!

This is a wonderful bag! Some reviewers mention that they would like to have a closure on the main pocket, but I much prefer the accessibility. I'm constantly reaching in to retrieve a pen, a book, my chapstick, etc., and the large pocket makes this easy. The zippered pockets inside let me secure my wallet amid all of this constant reaching-in and retrieiving. The outside pockets are perfect for storing water bottles, tissues, pens, or anything else for quick access. My laptop fits in with cord, book, notebook, and essentials. And the wide strap makes this comfortable to carry even when it's heavy. Perfect bag.

This is a very practical, well-made, sturdy bag, great for toting books, files, papers, or even a modest grocery run, like to a farmer's market. The canvas is quite heavy and thick. It's a practical size, not too big, but just big enough. To close it, I had on hand a small leather puppy-sized dog collar. This works perfectly to hold the sides together, while still allowing some access.

I purchased this bag to carry files, laser measuring device, camera and miscellaneous files everyday in my car. Absolutely love it! I put it on the front seat of my car and everything is within easy reach.

An Excellent Holds-Everything Bag
I love my purple bookbag. I get lots of complements on its looks and the stash of items that it holds in the pockets. It holds everything I need for work, laptop, files and my Circa to-do list. The pockets have plenty of room for my water, jotlet, cards, pens and a ton of other needed items used when your away from your office. The tools that came with the bag are very handy; the magnifier was helpful when we tried to read a spreadsheet written in a tiny font. Since I had a couple of them I was able to pass them around the table so everyone could see what it said.
