I recently purchased two of these, one for myself, and the other as a gift for a friend. I LOVE how well made these bags are. I already have a Levenger briefbag that I have used for work for years. Because of that, this is a weekend or "errand day" bag for me. I love the outside pockets and how quickly I can place my keys and phone within easy reach. I am looking forward to actually using it to haul books! I will be purchasing an additional bag for yet another friend, it's simply that good.

This is a dsmall bag ... how disappointing.
Pay attention to the other reviews that mention this is a small bag. Somehow the picture in the catalog is deceiving, perhaps because the description includes the word "generous."...Read complete review
Pay attention to the other reviews that mention this is a small bag. Somehow the picture in the catalog is deceiving, perhaps because the description includes the word "generous." Not so; this is really a small bag. I gave it as a present and was taken back when I saw how small it was.

Comments about Levenger Bloomsbury Bookbag Stocked with Tools:
I love the construction of this bag and its multiple outside pockets. It's a bit small, but that is clearly stated in other reviews. A closure of some type and key fob would be nice additions. This bag is great for my weekly trips to the library to load up on books! Thanks!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good sized-can easily fit papers in folders. The front pocket is large enough to hold a tumbler of coffee without being bulky. The purple color is beautiful and the materials and build are solid, as one would expect.
Best Bag EVER!!!
I have a bit of a bag obsession. This is by far the best bag I have ever purchased. I literally carry it everywhere. It's big enough to hold whatever I need it to, but not so big that it feels awkward. I've bought a few things from Levenger, including the circa system and I'm quickly becoming a lifelong customer. The quality cannot be beat. I recommend Levenger to everyone I know.
Another great color for this versatile bag
This is my 4th purchase of the Bloomsbury bag (one I gave as a gift to my lil sis years ago, still in use). The very first one was tan canvas, and it never wore out - I just tired of it and got a dark blue one 2-3 years ago. 1st observation: the canvas in the original bag was heavier, softer, sturdier. The blue bag still had the same functionality, but wasn't (IMHO) as well made. Neither had the additional shoulder strap they come with now. My newest one, the dark purple, is a beautiful bag, same great functionality, and has the shoulder strap, but unless you are carrying a hard legal size notebook or a laptop, the bag crumples using the shoulder strap. The canvas just ins't thick enough to hold the nice shape of the bag. That's my one and only knock on this bag. For the price, it is great to use for art supplies, journals, sm laptop, pens etc for my forays to library or cafe for writing/drawing. A-

The perfect utility bag
from Buffalo, NY
This functional and attractive bag is well made and sturdy without being too rugged looking. The purple is a nice shade that contributes greatly to the bag's overall appearance. It's slightly smaller than the average messenger bag, but much more thoughtful in its design. The only possible drawback (and this is not an issue for me) might be that the bag does not close. There is no zipper, snap or ties that brings the two sides together. But as a book and document tote, with plenty of pockets, a name tag, handles and a shoulder strap, this bag is an easy and stylish winner. Highly recommended.
Bloomsbury Book Bag

I walk with a cane so I needed something that was more functional than a purse. This was the greatest investment I have made in years. The weight is evenly distributed to my choosing and it is easy to access. Thanks for such a great product.

It's a shame reviewers have down-graded their score of this item due to its size. The dimensions are clearly indicated in the description. I don't understand why recipients are surprised when they open the box.

I have wanted this bag for a long time, sadly the blue one was no longer available when I went to order, but I love the purple one I got. The bag is a great size, is roomy without being so big that your stuff rattles around in the bag. The outside pockets are great for my eyeglass case, notebook, mints, etc. Another zip pocket on the interior would have been nice, but I can manage without it. The bag does tend to gape open a little bit when carried on the shoulder, but I think I I can devise some type of toggle to use with the grommets to help keep it closed more to my liking.
Perfect Purse, Bag, Tote, Carryall
from Lee's Summit, Missouri
This bag is amazing. I needed to find a substitute for the Vera Bradley tote, I was using, and purchased this bag in blue. I transferred my contents, and this bag has been my purse since. The pockets on the exterior a roomy and keep me organized. There is enough room in the bag for my Hospice laptop, and the usual stuff I carry in my purse. Also, when carrying my work laptop, I can carry my Kindle, Nook, and Tablet plus a small paperback book. Very durable. Going to order another one. And the tools are great. I use the magnifyer all the time and love the little pen, carry it in my pocket. Best deal.
Love this bag. I have only 2 negative comments: 1)size - it appears larger in the pictures. It would be a bit more functional if it was slightly larger; 2)closure - it needs a magnet or zipper. Otherwise it is great and I would buy it again.
