Though I had not stressed this out or overstuffed it (I travel light), the loop closure parted ways with the bag. I think though I've had it since July 2013 and it gave up the ghost about two months ago...so not quite a year I guess. This morning, I finally broke down and tried to staple something to the front of it and stitch it a little so I could use the closure. It's ugly but it reminded me to mention this issue to you. I'm an iPad carrying, lipstick wearing, extremely small wallet (think coin purse) kind of person. I couldn't really see any reason for that closure to pop out of the fabric. I've got a staple and thread holding it together now.

it forms to the curve of my hip, which is nice for public transportation where space is limited. I received this bag and then went on a two week European trip. By the time I returned home, my leather wallet and leather iPad case, as well as other lighter-colored items, were all stained with dark smudges from the interior of the bag. I also noticed that my fingernails and finger pads were a tainted dark color from digging around in the bag. About halfway through my trip, I noticed that the shoulder strap was coming undone from the fastener, meaning that at any moment, the whole bag could have fallen off my shoulder. The stitching was unraveling. I took it to a shoe repairman and had them add metal rivets to hold it tight. Then, on the trip back to the states, I noticed that the zipper for the interior pocket had fallen off and was now missing. I am terribly disappointed in the quality of this bag, and I really wish they would improve the quality because it it otherwise a wonderful bag. I am returning it, but wishing very much that I didn't have to. Luckily, customer service has been easy to deal with as far as returning the bag, but they don't seem to address the quality issues, as the issues I've had seem to be had by other users as well. As it is now, I would not purchase this bag again, or recommend it to anyone. Also, as a side note, I paid the extra $6 to have my initials monogramed on the black leather patch, which they did, but it was very small and wasn't centered and looked kind of silly.

I originally bought this bag for my daughter but decided to keep it for myself. I am a writer and I'm back to school and the design of this bag is perfect. It has a cover with a latch that keeps everything safe inside, not heavy, quality material, can wear it across the shoulder or over the shoulder, front pockets allow easy grab, and water bottle pocket. I've had numerous bags and could never get the right style for fit my needs. I finally found it. Now I have to buy another one for my daughter who is also back in school.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well worth the money
I love this bag! It's perfect for work; not too big, not too small. I wanted to wait before writing a review, and now that I've had the bag about two years, I can say it is very well made. The strap has pilled a bit, which is why I gave it 4 stars for quality, but the bag is very sturdy. Would definitely recommend.
Love this bag
from South Lyon Mi.
I was looking for an "emergency" bag and the staff bag is perfect. I have room to keep files of all my important papers plus the outer pockets hold a weeks worth of my scripts. Hoping I will never need to use it in an emergency but meanwhile I work out of it daily.I also bought one for my daughter as a Christmas present.
Love this bag!
I bought this as a Retirement gift for my Boss who is going to take a computer class at the local college for fun when he retires this month. My coworkers all pitched in and we have enough $ to fill it with supplies too, because the bag is so affordable. We had his initials engraved on the front and it looks awesome. The bag is super sporty, yet very stylish and I can't believe how much room there is. Liked it so much, I'm buying another one for my husband!! Thanks Levenger.com for making my shopping so easy!
excellent to work bag
from Los Angeles, CA
i measured and assessed all of your bags as well as several other brands. i selected this messenger bag as i felt it met my needs. i am using it for the first time so i do not know what to expect as far as endurnace. I liked that it has an inside zip part plus the 2 outside pockets. it carries all i need to take with me. My last bag was a work gift but the zipper broke and I needed something more durable. I have been w this company for awhile and everything else i have ordered met or exceeded my expectations. I am hoping for the same w this bag

We purchased this bag last year for my nephew to use in high school. He is autistic and had trouble being organized using a backpack. Using this bag has worked well, and he feels like an adult. The water bottle pocket is a little snug but it made a great holder for a small umbrella. Thank you for this product.:-)
Wish it was more sturdy
from Austin, TX
I loved this bag when I first received it. It fits files and small computers perfectly, is weighed well, and fits under airline seats without a problem. However, several months into its use, the canvas started to rip and come apart at the seams. I wish I could continue to use it, but the quality is just not there.

I was hoping this bag would be the go-between bag from a purse to a briefcase, large enough for files, pens, ipad, pads, wallet, etc. It is big enough; however the zipper continues to get caught in the cloth around it and the top flap is hard to maneuver. The outside pockets are too flimsy in that items continually fall out. The stitches are already beginning to unravel. I have purchased dozens of Levenger items throughout my years in business; this is a purchase I should have passed on. Had I not had it monogrammed, I would have returned it.

I love this bag! It is well balanced and roomy without being over-the-top. The only "function" that could be improved on are the side pockets for holding a bottle of water. They are a bit on the small side and I find that I have to struggle a bit to even get my glasses case out. I'm not sure if the pockets will loosen-up, but I LOVE the bag anyway!
