I use this bag as a purse, and it is perfect for me. Bought the first one in your Boston store, and loved it so much I purchased the second online. The dark brown I originally purchased can be used as a brown or black bag, so the second one in black was a bit of a splurge, but I love it that much. iPhone (6+) fits in one of the outer pockets; I use the second outer pocket for tissues, lipstick, etc. I carry too many fountain pens, in my Levenger leather three pen pouches, which fit neatly in the third outside pocket. Inside, the organization is perfect for my iPad (in the padded pouch). In the main compartment I keep my sunglasses, reading glasses and Levenger wallet. The open slip pocket on the back is perfect for a magazine, grocery list, journal or similar things. I just wish this bag came in more colors. I'd buy each color!

This is a well made bag but too narrow. If, as one reviewer said you put a tablet in a pocket and some keys and phone it will work for you. I wanted a messenger to take on a trip and I have 3 pair of glasses and a large wallet, tissues and other travel necessities and they did not fit unless I piled things on top of one another. When the bag was so stuffed it made the pockets difficult to use with files or papers getting squished and bent. Also the strap kept getting tangled. It's a nice looking bag and seems fairly sturdy but it's only 2" wide which for my purposes made it much less useful. If you are looking for a bag with some capacity look elsewhere. If you don't carry much this bag migh be for you.

A beautiful, but rather small, bag
from Monroe, Michigan USA
Comments about Levenger Double Pocket Messenger:
I have many Levenger products, and all are high quality -- this bag is no exception. Rich soft leather, tight functionally sturdy zippers, and lots of pockets. It is the perfect bag for someone that carries a tablet and a few small items, in a cross body carry. I do agree with some of the other reviewers when they say the bag is a little tight from a utility standpoint. I carry a Surface 3 PRO tablet, one of the Levenger notepads, and perhaps one file folder (usually no more than 1/2 inch thick) and that about fills it up. I have managed to squeeze in one of my Levenger Tyler folios in place of the notepad, but it's tight, and one runs the risk of wrinkling and bending cards that are placed into the inside pockets of the bag, unless one is very careful sliding the folio in. I also agree that the bag could use a top handle, and that the strap – while well-executed – tends to tangle. I have added a "wrap-around shoulder pad, which reduces this tendency somewhat, but I carry the bag in a one-shoulder carry, rather than crossbody.All in all, this is a high quality, impressive bag with many great features. The limitations are more specific to the functional needs of the individual owner, and are not flaws, as such. When you need to carry a little more stuff, I recommend the Stealth Laptop Messenger or the Bomber Jacket Expandable Brief – both work very well for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent bag at an affordable price
from King and Queen ,Vir
I have been using this bag for about 2weeks. I'm using it for work and I find it most appropriate in size, functionality, and style. The leather is top quality and the dark brown can be used with brown and black. The 2 small pockets are so functional for my cell phone and my personal items so that I don't have to carry a purse while I'm using this bag. It carries very well and is comfortable on my shoulder or cross body. A great bag with a great look!!
Outstanding Practical and Well-Made Bag
By Alex the Bag Man
from Washington, DC
I have been using this bag during at out-of-town business trip for the last 5 days, and it is a joy! What distinguishes it from so many other bags is the numerous inside and outside pockets. Enough room for me to keep a tablet, charger, smartphone, papers and other items organized and accessible. The leather is soft, and the quality of the stitching is very good. The zippers are well-sewn and solid to open and close.The bag's size prevents it from being bulky, and it slips nicely in the airline overhead or under the seat. My only wish would be that the bag have a top handle so it can be carried like a briefcase; it now has to be lifted using the shoulder strap. I did not smell a strong order upon receiving and opening the bag, as other reviewers reported. This bag is an excellent workhorse for someone who wants a practical and professional-looking case.
Outstandingly useful and versatile bag
By Alex the Car Enthusiast
from Washington DC
I have been using this bag for the last week on a business trip, and it is a pleasure. What makes it so good is the large number of internal and external pockets coupled with a manageable size and wonderful quality leather. One can easily store a laptop, tablet, phone and documents and remain organized using the pockets. The bag is not bulky and fits easily into airplane overheads and under airplane seats. My only wish would be that the bag have a top handle so it can be carried like a briefcase; now one has to pick the bag up using the long shoulder strap. I have many leather bags, but this one is becoming a favorite for its great size, functionality and appearance.

Double Pocket Messenger
from Palm Springs, CA
I just returned from extensive travel which was the inaugural use of my new Double Pocket Messenger. The Messenger did exactly what I wanted. It held my laptop (with adapter and cords), a writing pad portfolio, a few legal documents that I had not copied to the cloud and miscellaneous travel items. For my intended use, it is 100% functional and beautiful to boot.

Took a bit of getting used to, but well worth it
from Santa Clara, CA
I "moved into" this bag from an old Stanley bag that was finally showing the wear from about nine years of continuous use. At first, I found it a bit frustrating, because it seemed much smaller than the Stanley, but as I put more and more stuff into it, the bag never complained and accepted everything I could throw at it. It is especially useful if you travel with an iPad rather than a full-sized laptop. The leather is incredibly soft and silky, but after about a year of use, it still looks fine. My only desire would be to have handles on top -- that would make it perfect!
from Colorado Springs, CO
I already own, use, and love the Levenger Metro Messenger but wanted a bag that looked more professional and had a little more room for my tech. This was perfect. My 11" MacBook Air fits perfectly as advertised, as do my accessories. It looks great and has all of the Levenger quality and extras (nice interior pockets, strong zippers, magnetic close, etc.) that I have come to expect from Levenger.
Perfect Travel Accessory
from Charlotte, NC
This bag is perfect. Has enough space for all the accessories you need on the go. Pockets to keep papers or notepads organized, they even thought of perfectly sized sleeves for your phone.
