Though I purchased this sturdy bag for hauling books, papers, etc. to book club, I have found that its roominess easily accommodates gym garb, handbag contents, baby gear, dog treats & more!

I have been stalking this bag for some time and decided to purchase it when it went on sale. Chose the color that was represented as beige and appeared to be whitish gray on the web site. Excited when the box arrived the day after Christmas until I opened the box and found a distinctly mustard colored bag. Gross!

functionality with style
from New York City
I've watched this bag for a while, intrigued but not interested in having my books in a bag in my small apartment. Finally I took the plunge and bought three, one in each of three colors to color code my teaching materials for my three campuses. The bags are everything they are advertised to be: sturdy with pockets galore. They are just right for schlepping teaching notes, a book, an electronic pad, and some snacks. I added a "your way" wristlet to swap out things I'll need wherever I go, leaving things for each campus ready to go without the need for packing and repacking every day. I have seen other reviews that said the bag is small and doesn't stand up on its own. It does stand when loaded but flops over when empty, which is actually a plus for storage, and it is exactly the dimensions indicated in the catalog. The purple color is drab and disappointing, kind of muddy looking, but the black and the red really pop. Either this is an anomaly or the catalog color tones have been touched up for consistency. They easily stand up to the amount of weight that I would feel comfortable carrying around on my shoulder all day. The pockets are on the short side but are aesthetically correct to the size of the bag and they do hold a lot. In all, the bags are the perfect task-specific tote. The red and the black will coordinate easily with dress casual work clothing or just playclothes for the market. I can see this bag as a great carry-on for train travel as it will sit handsomely on the next seat of rest easily under the seat or in the briefcase sling.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Bloombury Bookbag is among the best buys I've made in a while. I would recommend this to both men and woman because it is a unisex item and very stylish. Keep bring items such as this and I will remain the long term customer that I am.
A great bag?
from New Port Richey, Florida
I love this durable, functional bag. I carry it as a purse and utilize the outside pockets for all the "little" things I need to carry. I would give one of these as a gift in a mint!
Finally! A Bargain Bag with Great Functionality
from Chicago, IL
i've been eyeing this bag for years! even though i've crossed over to the e-reader side, i still carry a lot of stuff! and this bag has room for all of it AND a zillion pockets! The Readers' Tool were a plus, but I'd buy this bag again even without them.
from Boston, MA
Gave two as gifts; recipients loved them!
OHHH The Book Bag
from Nashville, TN
When I tell you I couldn't wait to get my hands on this bag, believe me it is true. I was very excited about bag. I see it is now also in purple...something to think about. I must admit, I thought it was going to be a bit bigger, but it holds two of my notebooks. Talk about functional, the pockets going all the way around the bag are great. The detailing is awesome. I really like having the monogram on the tag. Just one of those great Levenger touches.
Bloomsbury Bookbag & Tools=Academic Success
from Okla. City, Okla.
Excellent resource for students and book-lovers alike! I ordered 2, 1 for each of my g-daughters, upon their graduation from high school and 6th grade respectively. They loved the included tools as much as they did the bags!As a Professor of Nursing, I wish I could afford to order a bag for each incoming student, as the tools certainly add to the skills necessary for academic success and the bag itself is durable and large enough to hold the required multiple, heavy textbooks.I hope this product isn't being discontinued as I would like to order more at Christmas.Thanks for offering a wonderful resource at a reasonable price!!
Love the pockets on the outside
from Phoenix, AZ
It is hard t o carry without a shoulder strap but I love the pockets. Easy to carry all the items I need easy access to. Like my phone, keys, pens, and cards.

from McAllen, TX
I was so excited when the Levenger box arrived today… but this bag is not what I was expecting, the bag has no shape, is so small and does not stand on it's own. Maybe I would be returning it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Sturdy and Practical
from Falmouth, VA
I've debated this bag for quite a while, thankfully the same price tipped the scales for me. This bag is indeed as sturdy, as practical and as over-packable as if hoped. Knitting, book, tablet, pens, notepad, chargers, mints, et cetera are all in mine right now. If I could change one thing, of have longer handles or a detachable shoulder strap as my hands are often full with no hand left for my bag.
