I like everything about this bag. Sure, it's expensive but it is also multi-functional. It's comparable to having multiple bags for one price. I sling it over my shoulder in some instances and this achieves a sophisticated look, and sometimes I carry it by the handle. The point is that it's versatile and the methods of use are not cumbersome, rather smoothly altered from one method to another. Bonus: I didn't realize it had RFID technology embedded until after I received it (I missed that bit of information), so I am feeling even better about the value. I'm a professional woman, and I felt silly about carrying a backpack, but I came to terms with the idea when my daughter convinced me to purchase a "diaper-bag back pack" for navigating with my first grandchild. After a trip to the zoo, I was sold on the idea but still skeptical about carrying one to work. I'm so over that. I've posted some images to show the reality of the dimensions. The side pocket will hold a pair of fit-over sunglasses easily. My 9.5" x 12.5" leather binder fits in the laptop section, but it's a snug fit, so don't expect to place an over-stuffed binder easily. The remaining pockets are spacious to carry the rest of my essentials. I hope this review helps in your decision making.

Lovely on the outside but...

Overall, not as expected. The leather is beautiful but I was surprised by the inexpensive, plastic lining. I don't believe this would hold up with everyday use, it actually felt quite fragile....Read complete review

Overall, not as expected. The leather is beautiful but I was surprised by the inexpensive, plastic lining. I don't believe this would hold up with everyday use, it actually felt quite fragile. I can't imagine using this everyday to tote my laptop around. This felt more like a substitute when one would not want to use a handbag, but the lining was a big turn-off. I sadly returned the product.

Sturdy companion

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

I've carried this backpack nearly every weekday for almost two years, and taken it abroad twice as a dependable carry-on. I routinely carry a Dell laptop or a MacBook Air, cables and small peripherals and a small complement of "purse" items. The smaller size and sleek exterior in quality leather were key factors in my purchase. Both the exterior and interior have stood up well, despite my tendency to overstuff it. The interior pockets are easy to access and conveniently sized. Some have mentioned that a slightly taller dimension would be favorable, and I would agree, but I haven't experienced significant issues with the current dimensions. The exterior zippered pockets are conveniently placed. While the two on the front are somewhat limited in capacity without appearing bulging, the one on the back between the straps is spacious and discreet. The pack wears well over one or both shoulders. Highly recommendable and will be my "go to" again when this one does someday wear out.

This bag can take a lot

By 

from Lawrence, KS

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

I have carried this backpack every day since Thanksgiving 2014. It has been through rainstorms (not recommended) dirty cars, restaurant floors, important meetings. I have stuffed it so full I feared the zipper might break (not recommended). It will hold a Surface Pro 3 (the middle size, not the 12 inch) with keyboard, and I even with a snap on case and it juuusssst fits if you don't plump it out with other stuff. I always carry a Levenger accordian wallet, a paperback book, a file folder of stuff to look at (the corners will get messed up) and sometimes a water bottle in the large pocket. Forget about zipping it shut with the water bottle in there. The two front pockets are excellent, one has my gloves and earbuds, the other holds the 2 sets of keys I tote around and keeps them accessible. I love that I can keep both hands free. Note the straps are adjustable, but no punched hole adjustments to conform to. I need to sit down long enough to clean it. If I could change it I would make it one inch taller to hold that file pocket folder nicely and the pen loops solid with bottoms that way if I miss clipping the pen to the loop it won't fall to the bottom of the bag. To summarize, it has survived me.

Perfect carry-on bag

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

I bought the smaller version of this to use in town, but it wasn't quite large enough to take what I want on plane trips. This is a perfect upsize. My iPad, Moleskine, and all my electronic gear (cords & a bluetooth keyboard) will fit. And still have some room. That said, it doesn't look at all clunky -- it's just a great size, and well-designed. I bought the purple, and have received numerous compliments.

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

This backpack keeps me from overloading and making the backpack too heavy to carry, yet I can get everything I need in it. During my last trip, several people commented on how nice it looks too!

Quality material, well made, lightweight

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

I use this bag to carry my iPad pro, cables, wallet and daily meds. That pretty much fills the bag. The height of my iPad Pro with case is 12 1/4 inches.....any bigger and I would not be able to zip the bag closed, it is that tight a fit. The zippers are smooth operating and well made. I use this backpack when I need to carry my iPad and I lock my handbag in the trunk cause the "kitchen sink" and all my other daily valuables won't fit (but I can live with that!). This backpack is ideal. If I could change one thing about this bag I would make it about an inch taller for the larger tablet.

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

Have used plum backpack for a month and love it. Fits both MacBook Air or my iPad with keyboard as well as a file folder. My favorite thing is the pockets and all the spots to tuck things. It's so streamlined with no feeling of a bulky backpack. Beautiful feel to the leather.

Fantastic Bag!

By

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

This bag is one of the best I have ever purchased for work. I can carry a file or two, my iPad, my purse, a makeup bag, phone, several pens & pencils, sunglasses, a wad of keys, and it is not even bulging! The only sadness I have is that my laptop does not fit. I have an older laptop that needs to be replaced soon and it is rather large. There were no tears lost, however, as I can do most of my work-on-the-go on my iPad. Thank you for a fantastic, beautiful, functional bag!

Just What I have Been Searching For!

By

Comments about Levenger Compact Laptop Backpack:

This is the lightest, most compact bag I have ever owned and it holds everything I need! I was so tired of lugging around bulky bags that weigh4 or 5 lbs. empty! This bag holds my i-pad, my full size circa notebook and the smalls that come with my type of work (pens, highlighters, pencils, etc). The leather seems to get softer as I use the bag. Looks and functions great! Great quality also. Levenger does it again!
