Raffinato Color Block Satchel
More than Expected
This bag was so much better than seeing it online. It is the perfect size for my needs and the quality is outstanding. I know I will get many good years of use out of it.

Love at first sight
Love my new bag - holds my Circa with ease plus files and it has plenty of pockets so easy to find frequently used items like keys and iPhone. I have received dozens of compliments on it.

PERFECT SIZE...I CAN FIT EVERYTHING I NEED IN IT AND STILL HAVE AN ATTRACTIVE PURSE. AS ALWAYS I JUST LOVE THE LEATHER ON LEVENGER PRODUCTS

Professional and Feminine
Many satchel's for women are too casual for work purposes, and many briefcases or briefbags are too masculine. This one strikes the balance. Cognac colors work well with summer colors such as beige, white, lighter colors, and act as a great accent for traditional work attire colors of black, gray, brown. I've been looking for it to go on sale, and am thankful for the additional discounts of gift card, percentage off, AND being on clearance!

I'm not one to buy many purses, when I buy one, I want to invest in quality because it will be with me for awhile. This bag is perfect and goes a long way to keep me organized. I know where everything is in the bag. I'm not searching and digging around to find my keys! You don't know how happy this makes me. I know I can always count on Levenger.

I LOVE IT!
I finally ordered one after drooling over it in the catalog a LONG time. I love everything about it...I have to guard it because my daughter has been eyeing it covetously! (Will there be more colors? I will buy her one.) Thank you for this great bag!

I am a "schlep it all along" kind of person, and this bag has been perfect - the interior is roomy, but extremely organized. I can easily access everything I keep in the bag: wallet, small Circa notebook, phone, keys, pens, book, hairbrush etc. There are enough pockets so that everything can be put into its own "spot", plus lots of room for extra things like a small folded umbrella, papers, even my lunch. Another nice feature is that the bottom of the bag is stiff, which makes digging in it much easier. I think it also looks nicer. I ordered this in the tan/orange combo, and was worried that it would be too orange, but it's a wonderful color combo; the orange is not too bright, and there is just enough to give some very nice contrast with the tan portion of the bag. Lastly, the lining is light in color - so much easier to see everything inside! The bag is very well made, and looks as if it will last forever (as have my 5 other Levenger bags). Highly recommend if you are looking for a large but stylish bag.

Love Love It!
This bag is absolutely perfect and for the sale price, a wonderful bargain. I matched it with the ipad mini wallet cross body which is equally beautiful, and makes a great bag within a bag. I never knew a bag could organize you, but it can, and this one does it well. I think I will not be changing bags for a long, long, time!

Absolutley beautiful and functional.
In several months I wil be retiring and then traveling a good bit wth my husband. I purchased a satche, double zip glasses case, checkboook cover, and phone wallet. Each item is perfect and the quality is remarkable!
The satchel will hold eveything my spouse and I will need while flying or driving....no need for extra bags!
Thanks for selling a great product that is definitley worth the price.

Absolutely. Love. It!
I also watched this bag for months and couldn't make up my mind. I travel (fly) weekly for work and really wanted a tech bag that didn't look like a guy's bag, was stylish and pretty and held a full size laptop and all the other stuff associated with work travel. Then it came out in blue and I just HAD to have it! I love it.
The leather is soft, feels absolutely wonderful and it's is every bit as stylish as I had hoped.
What does it hold? Everything I need it to. I travel with a Lenovo Yoga which is a full sized laptop, but very thin. Although I have not yet tried my Lenovo Thinkpad ("brick") it will fit with only a marginal loss of ability to store additional things due to the added thickness.
I can carry the Yoga, a pretty thick Circa notebook, electronics case, glasses case, my wallet and an iPad or ereader (in the special pocket, which has a nice snap fastener) in the main compartment. Even so, there is still room for magazines purchased at the airport.
The outside slip pockets are great for phone, tickets, receipts for expenses etc. The zip front pocket is basically a small organizer which holds, lipstick, earpiece, and other small items normally kept in a purse. I actually have a fairly flat purse and discovered that it will actually fit in the main compartment for "consolidation" when boarding.
Being as the bag itself is not particularly large, I am pleasantly surprised at just how much it holds. I think that is because the bag, while not slouchy and quite structured, is very soft.
One of my initial concerns was that it did not have a "pass over" to fit over the handle of rolling luggage (so few really nice bags do, sadly). The 4 stars for function is because of this one thing that I would add if I could (and if I could without comprising the style of the bag). Although that is typically a deal breaker for me, I still ordered the bag as I loved the Blue so much. Other bags without this function have a tendency to slip off the roller bag when hitting bumps or inclines and I am not sure why this bag doesn't, but it doesn't. It just seems like a really nicely "balanced" bag which sits steady on top of my spinner and never shifts.
Also, it is surprisingly light too. I love, love, love this functional, pretty, high quality bag. Like many others I am a "bag freak" but I can see this being my "go to" bag for quite a while. Very, very happy with this purchase.
