I recently purchased two of these, one for myself, and the other as a gift for a friend. I LOVE how well made these bags are. I already have a Levenger briefbag that I have used for work for years. Because of that, this is a weekend or "errand day" bag for me. I love the outside pockets and how quickly I can place my keys and phone within easy reach. I am looking forward to actually using it to haul books! I will be purchasing an additional bag for yet another friend, it's simply that good.

I have been using this bag for a year for my daily life as a teacher.I carry my laptop in its padded case, and a few assignments to grade. When I add my 1" Circa notebook it gets tight. The inner zipped pocket is nice.The outside pockets are nice, in theory, but they are not tall enough to be secure. Because the bag is rather flaccid, as mentioned in other reviews, the pockets collapse; as they have no fastener, I have had items fall out.The purple is darker than it appears to me on line, so the brown accents don't "pop" as much as I had hoped.I love Levenger but this bag is not quite as handy for me as a teacher as I had hoped it would be.

More Functional than I could have guessed
from Salinas, CA
I got this as a gift from my parents in black. I started using it as an additional bag to my purse when I worked. It has so much function to it that I decided to use it as a purse. I love it! I can get to all those annoying things that I have to dig for in my purse,like my keys, sunglasses and phone, on he outside. I do make sure that they're snug in the outside pocket so they don't fall out. I use it as a crosscross body, so my hands are free to shop, anything else that I need my hands for.Now I need a second one now to use as my book bag!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for doctor's tools
from Los Angeles, CA
I am a medical student and need to keep tons of papers, tapes, scissors, stickers, tools etc at the ready and well organized. If someone asks for a specific form, I need to have it in their hands immediately. This bag makes it so easy! I know exactly where everything is and I can find it quickly. It stands on it's own and the middle pocket is big enough for my full-size notebooks and ipad. The handles are also very comfortable for a quickly grab and go. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased.

I bought this as a gift for daughter who was starting a new job. She loves it, fits a portfolio and all the essentials she needs. Very durable and the purple color is true to color. She loves the bag so much she uses outside of work for everything.
I had been watching the Bloomsbury bag for some time before I finally just gifted myself! for the most part I love the way the bag is designed, it is well made, the added goodies that come with the bag are fun as well. However, I was somewhat disappointed in the size of the bag it looks bigger in the pictures and is in fact as some other reviewers have stated too short to hold wide folders or notebooks without crimping the edges. I will keep my bag because I love the overall design, color, and function it could stand to be bigger.
Another great Levenger product!!
from Bandera, TX
I am so glad I purchased this beautiful bag! The size is great, it doesn't weigh a ton due to the fabric instead of leather, yet it is sturdy and carries everything I need for a busy day out and about - meetings, travel, work. I really like the shoulder strap and the hand carry straps are comfortable too.I thought in reading other reviews that the bag might be too floppy, but it really isn't . Also due to its dimensions I don't find myself worried that the open top would invite others to help themselves to my stuff. All in all its a great and very versatile bag !! This from a self-proclaimed Bag Lady!
Picture is deceiving
This bag is well constructed and stylish. However, the size is too small. When placing standard folders will not fit into the bag horizontally.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Terrific Vendor Gift!
We wanted to thank a vendor for her work - and get a tool for her use as she transfers work from her home office to our office. This bag (in purple) MORE than accomplished all of the above! She loves it, and we love seeing her arrive in our office with it knowing that her files are safely stored inside. Thank you!
Love. This. Bag!
from Indian Wells, CA
I bought this for myself as a present and it is my daily carry bag. As a designer I need to schlep around lots of stuff to both clients, jobsites and of course design showrooms. This bag takes me everywhere. I have a tape measure permanently in on pocket and can easily slip my phone in and out of one of the others. It holds my note[ad, ipad, client file folders and samples all with ease while not being big and bulky or heavy. Love the shoulder strap for when I'm juggling multiple things to carry or need free hands. The canvas holds up great and 6 months after some hard labor it still looks brand new. I did spill an entire smoothie in and on it and it survived a trip to the cleaners just fine, My juggling of things needs work. Can't say enough about this bag!
Second bag that I got in less that a month
What else can I say? The first one was "borrowed" from my daughter that was in love with it the moment that she saw it. So I ordered the second one and is PERFECT!!
I purchased this bag in black to use as an everyday handbag. I love it! The only thing I would change is to add a snap or zipper so the bag could be carried open if used as a tote or closed if used as a handbag. I solved the problem by using the leather tag that comes with the bag. I simply looped it through the two middle grommets. I can access and remove most things I carry without having to unfasten it, but it's quick and simple to undo if I need to.
