I have this bag in red & enjoy it as much today as when I bought it. I also have the red leather portfolio--perfect match. The leather still looks good after daily use for at least 5 years. Great size, quality leather. Will buy another one if this ever wears out.

Awesome bag; awesome company
I originally bought this bag back in 2010, and proceeded to travel extensively across 4 continents, in every transportation system imaginable. This bag held up, and always looked like new throughout. In addition, as the bag softened, and as the amount of paper in it decreased, I was able to include critical overnight emergency supplies. The metal clasp on the shoulder harness broke on a rough bus ride recently, and I wrote to Customer Service about replacing the strap.They replaced the entire bag! I returned the old bag (with a tea in my eye -- for nostalgic reasons), and look forward to subjecting this new one to the same rigorous travel agenda (although I will be more careful with the metal clasp (or travel more comfortably, maybe?).

I had been debating this bag for a long time, tdying to determine if I wanted this or the larger laptop bag, but finally determined I should start carrying less stuff. That said this bag holds quite a bit and maintains its slim profile. The leather is very soft and supple,

I use my Briefbag every Sunday for church. My books are heavy, and I have to select which books I'll use that Sunday, although I should take them all. I worry about the weight. My books fit nicely in he Briefbag, and I mainly think about the leather strap attaching to the small leather loops and breaking. Only time will tell. I still think this is a wonderful, classy bag.

Great attention to detail and quality. Worth every penny.

Love the zippers
I purchased this to replace another Levenger bag that I'd had for years. I particularly love the ability to zip all compartments, since I travel on public transportation quite a bit.

Love this bag!
I purchased this bag to replace another Majorca Briefbag I had for about 10 years. Improvements in the organizational section are great. Accommodates my slim wallet, iPhone 6, 2 pens, business cards and keys. I also like the textured leather and contrast stitching that are new since I purchased my first bag. The main compartment holds a lot and retains its slim profile. Helps me keep organized and professional when I meet clients.

A nice bag, but beware cheap hardware
A fine bag, but beware of the cheap hardware used for zippers and zipper pulls. My wife has lost no less than 4 zipper pulls due to the poor quality metal used to fasten the leather pull to the zipper. Some have been replaced by Levenger and others by local luggage repair shops, but the design is bad.
Also note that the zipper breaks down with repeated use. Currently the bag is out of commission as the main zipper no longer holds together.
My wife is unhappy with the quality of this bag, which is unfortunate. It doesn't seem to stand up to everyday use.

Great Upscale Briefbag!
Lovely leather, different pockets make it very functional, and I liked that the longer strap came off. A plus for me was the shorter handles so, unlike many bags, when I set the tote on the floor, the handles do not hang down and touch the floor. Seems more sanitary to me!

Beautiful and Functional Bag
This bag is well constructed and the leather is soft yet sturdy. I like it so much that I ordered the Majorca Expandable Laptop Bag also.
