Marley Crossbody Organizer
Great bag; Not purple
The bag is beautiful, sized right, soft leather with lots of space and pockets. BUT if you're looking for a purple bag, this is not it. The color looks nothing like the picture. It almost looks brown. While I love the bag generally (and Levenger's service is excellent), I may return it if I can find a real purple bag.

Great Choice for me
I wasn't sure this purse would serve my purpose of downsizing yet being able to hold the items I truly needed. It turned out to be better than that! It holds more than I need it to hold. Don't let the size fool you. There is a place for everything. I went from a much larger purse to the Marley Cross Body, and all but my wallet fit into the Marley. The best part is that I can see it all. No more scrounging around looking for items. It is comfortable to wear cross my body. The leather is soft. This is a must have for every women.

Nice purse, Inaccurate color
I really like the features of this purse but I really wanted purple like in the photo.. Purple is not what I got. It is a very dark eggplant. I would suggest changing the photo to the actual color. or renaming the color as DARK eggplant. I already own it in black and this is so close its hard to tell the difference.

My Ideal Purse
This Marley is perfect for me. I travel frequently so I need a purse small enough to stick quickly in a carry-on when necessary, nice enough to wear to a professional event, and crossbody to prevent theft when walking in big cities. This bag holds my Kindle, my iphone, change, endless number of cards (credit, business, loyalty, etc.), keys, pens, passport--really, everything! I have been looking for this purse forever!

I purchased this bag, thinking it was larger than it actually was. When I received it, my initial reaction was "too small"... I was wrong! This amazing bag is perfect. It is well designed and there are pockets and places for everything. I was able to downsize my purse without feeling it. I am more organized and stylish than ever!

I bought this bag in both colors. I was a little skeptical at first as I'm the type of person who normally uses a larger bag and FILLS IT! I decided to get this purse after an incredibly embarrassing moment when I asked my husband to look in my purse for our checkbook and he was horrified by the mess! So I was looking for something that would be stylish, neat looking and would force me to get organized and stop lugging around so much stuff. Bingo! When I first got it, I though no way, this will never work. Well after I had the brown one for 3 months I got the black one. I could not be happier. Nice job - you've succeeded in organizing a pocketbook packrat!

I'm the type who uses one purse year-round. This one fits the bill. Sturdy, elegant, lots of storage. I require an attached wallet, and this one has a great one.

Good Little Bag
I'm a big Levenger fan, having purchased various other items over the years. I know their products are consistently high quality and this purse is no different. The feel of the bag is awesome and it looks well put together. I wondered if the magnet on the front purse flap would really be strong enough to keep the flap down and secure -- it is!!! I love the many compartments. However, the built-wallet compartment is where I wish things were a little different. The 2 pen holders are fairly useless unless you use a very narrow stick pen (I like fatter pens) and the holders are also too highly placed. I'd rather have one larger pen holder (little lower down) -or-- no pen holders and more credit card holder spaces (for drivers license, medical/dental cards, store membership cards, gift cards). I ended up going to a local store and buying a long, slim credit card holder for my most frequently accessed 6-7 cards that also has a window pocket on the reverse side for my driver's license. I keep this addt'l piece within the wallet area of the purse and it's very easy to pull out quickly when needed. The built-in change /dollar holder is a little difficult to get to the bottom to dig out change - wish that holder was a little wider. I've also had previous built-in wallets within purses that had slotted spaces for currency, even several slots to keep $1's separate from $5's/$10s/$20s, and I always really liked that -- this wallet space does not have that feature. Even with all this said, the purse is very nice and I've found workarounds to use it the way that it will serve me best. Overall, I'm not disappointed that I bought it and will use for a long time to come.

Perfect purse for me
This purse is perfect. Fabulous leather. I was alone and think I said "WOW!" when I opened the bag and touched the leather. It seems rugged and yet it makes you want to touch it because it feels so good. The main compartment easily fits my Kindle-Keyboard-3G with leather-lighted-cover on the Kindle. It feels safe in its cloth-lined compartment which helps for easy in and easy out with enough space to add the charger if I choose, or other items. The zippered back which hides compartmentalized storage opens to a wide 5 1/2" X 7" access opening so there is no trouble getting to the large zippered pouch across the bottom, pen and pencil loops (for full length writing tools), 6 credit-card holders, and 2 open-top pouches to hold cell phone or small wallet. In addition to the main zip compartment are 2 more zip access external pouches and a zipped pouch inside the main compartment. The purse appears to be small, yet it has terrific capacity. It will be a while before I fill all the compartments. The design is simple and stylish.

Impressed that it does the job of a big bag in a much smaller space. Also, quite light, even when full. I do miss the little window to insert the drivers license that I had in an earlier Levenger bag. Also, the location of the pen and pencil loops is too high, meaning that I can't zip the bag when the pen and pencil (the kind with clips) are in place. And I'd like to see more card slots. Other than that, perfect!
