Compact Laptop Backpack
I love the look, feel and comfort of wearing this backpack. I was using a bit larger backpack so I am trying to adjust to the more compact size. Very professional looking and profile great for travel.

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. 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.

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.

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!

Bonus: RFID Interior Zip Pocket
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.

Just What I have Been Searching For!
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!

Amazing backpack holds more then you'd think
I was looking for what I thought would be impossible to find- a stylish, small leather backpack that could hold a lot. This gem totally meets all of my requirements. It holds my 13" Dell and plug,Circa letter portfolio, mouse, mousepad and several file folders. Comfortable to carry and an added bonus is that purple is my favorite color. As a long term Circa user and Levenger customer - this bag continues the level of quality I have become accustomed to!

Too Big for Me
Too big for my ipad and the Marley Teardrop was too small. This would be good for a laptop. Leather nice. Not the right size for me.

I have the smaller Marley Teardrop Backpack which I love. I was looking for a bag just a little larger to carry my iPad in when needed. This bag has plenty of room for my iPad and a few folders with papers. It sits nice on the shoulder with one strap and extremely comfortable with 2 straps. The leather is lovely and becomes softer with use. Highly recommend.

Happy with Purchase
It is very versatile and easily coordinates between professional and casual; I love the plum color and the leather feels so soft, that I catch myself petting the backpack while toting it around.
