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.

Compact laptop backpack
I carry my backpack as a purse everyday. It is a very versatile piece. The leather is classic Levenger and gets many compliments. I especially like the multiple compartments that help me stay organized and make quick retrieval of items easy.

Great dressy backpack
I just bought this pack in Garnet and stopped by to review it. They are now on sale at nearly ½ off and I bought another in plum.
I really like this pack. It holds a lot and it looks great. Despite the narrow straps (I agree that they could be a bit wider as mentioned in another review) the pack is very comfortable when loaded, on my back.
I think an improvement would be to make the backpack straps removable in some way to make a very dressy backpack that converts to a purse for travel. I guess a water bottle pocket would be good -- one of the earlier reviews mentioned that, but I wouldn't want the backpack to lose its styling, so the water bottle pocket might need to be inside.

Classy & efficient
I love this backpack. I use it day to day to carry both my Surface and my iPad. When I need to carry a larger laptop, it slips easily into my rolling brief case. On trips, if I want to cut down on weight for a day of walking and shopping, I swap out critical items from my purse and just carry the little backpack instead of the purse. Despite all this action, the item seems to be standing up to much use very well.

Just the ticket
I needed a backpack for work and other activities to free up both hands. I carried a Levenger brief case for many years so I knew the quality. I love the Garnet color which is actually more subtle than the website shows and I was not disappointed with the functionality and quality. It's nice and slim front to back but has good capacity. I changed my style and bought a shoulder "wallet" that can be carried by itself when I don't want to mess with the backpack. It fits inside and I can tuck it in and go, hands free. The backpack looks great for work though. I'm a professional woman.

Love this backpack, perfect for traveling keeping hands free and very stylish. Packaging was great too, leather soft smells great and looks professional. Can be casual or professional accessory. Kept my ipad 4 in case with keyboard and much room to spare. Just love it!

Great look and quality
Bought this for my college professor daughter. It is perfect for her MacBook and class papers. Be aware, the profile is smaller than the usual case which worked well for her...something between a large purse and a traditional computer case/backpack. The leather is soft and elegant, the style is great, the whole effect is charming. She loves it!

I would highly recommend this item.
It is larger than the Marley Teardrop but in no way is it too large (which was a concern upon purchase). It feels comfortable, when full, to wear. My macbook pro fits in it easily, or I put in an iPad with keyboard cover, along with a kindle and case and a large monthly calendar.
It is replacing my old purse/backpack (not from levenger) which is slightly smaller than the the Marley Teardrop bag but not by much.
The leather and finish work are very nice.
There are only two items which could use improvement: one is that the straps are fairly insubstantial for a bag that can carry so much weight .... (Levenger Please revisit your design for better support) and two, the bag is lacking in any open pockets on the outside. The small zip pockets in the front can handle my keys, or, just barely, my iPhone 5s.... there is no outside pocket to easily slip my prescription sunglasses into with a hard shelled case. Thus the need for an open pocket or a larger outside pocket that can be easily accessed from either the front of the bag or the side.
I adore the fact that I can carry everything in one bag/purse on my back and I no longer need to carry multiple bags around all the time! It is lovely to have a nice looking bag that is big enough yet smaller than an actual daypack (which never looks professional).

Cutest tiniest laptop backback I've round
I had just about given up my search for a pretty leather laptop bag. They are either too mannish or made with leather that makes the bag too heavy. Then I found this - in eggplant, my favorite color. The leather is high quality, and SOFT. As for function: true, it makes you strip down to the essentials: laptop/power cord, wallet, a few pens, a small notebook and a phone. But it is so light and so well-designed that it's a pleasure. My only concern is that with heavy use, the straps may come loose at the connection point - they don't appear to have any extra security (like a rivet, or an X-pattern at the base like some heavy-duty bags). But, so far it is working great!
Another request: there are two small front zip pockets that right now are small and separate - they don't use the full space of the front "bubble" - in future designs, would be nice if they both opened into a large pocket (Crumpler backpacks do this - and it works great to put the bulky power cord in there).
