Close to perfect
The perfect bag for business travel. Allows me to carry one bag instead of a laptop bag and a purse. iPad and essentials fit nicely inside. Outside pocket allows for easy access to boarding pass and cell phone.
Small enough in size so it is not overwhelming. I agree with the review below that it does not stand up on its own, no matter what is inside or how it is distributed. That's aggravating, but I still would highly recommend this bag.

This is a great bag: organized, attractive, high-quality. The large zip pocket inside is my favorite feature: it's a perfect size for my iPad and wallet. And the outer zip pocket is great for my phone & keys, pens and a notepad.
The only thing I would change (very slightly) is to make the bag maybe a half an inch wider.
But it's a fantastic bag! If Levenger makes it in blue or green, I know I'll end up buying a second one.

So great I bought another!
Finally, I can carry my business and personal life in one bag. The outside zip compartment serves as my wallet and fits my cell phone, credit cards, cash, bluetooth, business cards and keys. The inside is perfect for a full sized 8 1/2 x 11 pad. Best of all - MY IPAD FITS IN THE MIDDLE ZIPPERED POCKET! Hurrah, hurrah!
Loved the red one so much, I bought a black one too!

This is a very well made and well organized bag. I am not to happy with the bright tomato color! I am keeping it for summer next year but was very disappointed that it was much lighter in color than appears in catalog and online. Also it is a little tall when used on the shoulder.
But great workmanship.

Bag won't stand upright
I just received this bag. Beautiful in every aspect but one - it tips over every time I set it down. Have others experienced this? is it the way it is designed or did I happen to get a defective bag? Frustrating to have to think about heavily loading one section in order to keep it upright.

Pefect for Petites
I'm petite and have had a very hard time finding bags that do not over power my small frame . After looking for a year, I finally found this bag--and it is perfect! It has enough storage pockets, is big enough to carry an Ipad, looks professional, and is not too heavy. Many bags look great in photos or in a store but look ridiculous on a small person. This bag has it all--good organization and style and just the right size.

This is a must have
Truly as good looking as my much, much more expensive bags. Great organizer without looking like an old lady bag. I get compliments from all ages. I have it in teal and am buying it in lilac. I wish it were offered in more trendy colors. It is intelligently designed. You can't see well from the pictures but, in addition to the front organizer panel compartment, it has three full depth and length inner compartments, as well. Because of the wrap-around zippers and the gussets, you can get a snack and a water bottle in it. An iPad or a kindle is a snap. I carry files and books, too. Yet unloaded, it is slim and tailored looking. The light-colored lining makes finding your things easy. I love big bags, but digging for what I need is a nightmare. Not so with this bag. My only construction complaint is that it should have feet to prevent scuffing. Come on Levenger, you are one step from perfection!

Great bag for busy woman
A great bag for someone who likes to be organized and likes to be able to find things easily. There is a pocket for everything and also secure areas. Love that you can put file folders (standing up) in the bag so there is no need to carry both a bag and briefcase into a meeting.

I find myself using this tote every day. I enjoy carrying my smaller purses and put my organizer, keys and other daily carries for my work in my tote. It is made very well and can with stand daily use. Stylish looking too.
I highly recommend!

fashionable, but limited functionality
The color is very rich, and the shoulder straps are the right length. The leather quality is outstanding. It comes in a cloth bag to protect it, and the front zipper section comes with key ring, pen slot, and cell phone holder. That section is huge, so they should have put in credit card slots so you don't need a separate wallet. I was hoping to use this to attend job interviews, but it's too small for what I need, yet almost too big to use for a regular purse. I think I'm going to give this to my mother for Mother's Day for when she goes on cruises and might want a larger but fancier bag.
