Bomber Jacket Messenger
The Go-to Bag
For an urbanite who walks a lot between the occasional bus, el and subway rides, a comfortable, spacious and handsome bag is not an accessory but a basic necessity. Large enough to accept an oversize magazine without rolling, folding or bending; slim profile that doesn't intrude on a crowded bus or train; easy access flap that still offers security; and the only bag for men I've owned with a strap allowing easy over-the-head, cross-body wear. This one has it all, with durability that promises that rugged aging only attained by the finest leather. It's not a purchase. It's the beginning of a long friendship.

Uh, Ladies - you NEED his bag
I KNOW this was designed for guys but really ladies, if you are like me and you dislike all the foo foo flowery/cutsie print bags that gets marketed to us and al you want is a universally handy messenger bag that is not expected to hold diapers and bottles and what nots - but rather hold misc items for a playground run - or just enough space to hold item for day or running errands - this is THE bag. Couldn't be happier with it- solid wide shoulder, lands just where I want it to - but strap is adjustable f you want it to land shorter. What do I use it for? I carry it museum trips, and also have it while working and stash some items for both the boy and me in there...woks perfect

I realize this bag was designed for a man, but I purchased it for a quick trip to Paris and then to use after my return for client meetings. The idea for client meetings is that I can grab my iPad and my client specific Circa notebook and quickly run to my meetings. Great organizational attributes and the fact that it is lightweight has made this bag perfect for both Paris and client meetings.

Usable for short trip.
I like my new messenger bag. The quality is great and it is very functional. The space is somewhat limited, but great for short trips. I carry my Bible and circa notebook plus a Kendall reader and a few other items. If you buy this item, I believe you will not be disappointed.

So glad I got it!
I have been wanting this messenger for a couple years now and Levenger just made it impossible to resist with such a great sale. The leather is awesome.. .soft and durable and I love the plaid interior. Way to go Levenger. Timeless.

I was tired of dragging a larger bag with me everywhere and wanted something smaller. This bag was exactly what I wanted. Not only is it the perfect size for my sketchbook and iPad Mini, but it forced me to streamline and get rid of a lot of useless detritus I was carrying in my larger bag. As an added bonus, the leather smells great!

Sophisticated, sensible, stylish!
Purchased for my husband, his official introduction to the "man handbag" after using a small over the shoulder bag in Europe.
He found the bag a bit clumsy at first as the leather is so supple it sags a bit in the middle. This makes it difficult to hang without increasing the sag in the center.
After he got used to the dimensions, and found that sagging is avoided if hung across multiple horizontal hooks, this is now his favourite bag.
He takes it everywhere now, and loves the utilitarian benefit it offers while looking much more smart than canvas or synthetic fabric bags.

I've been looking for the right-sized messenger for a while. I still have my first pouch, the midsize, and the large (the "Levenger Bomber Jacket Backpack Brief" which is a larger version of this .. great for taking out of town but somehow larger than life). I was at a loss to fill the space. I even (if you can believe) put the very first pouch in one of the pockets to hold 'extra cards and checkbooks.' I found that 'Hoss' was great .. the backpack straps make airports and other luggage-intense venues a snap. But just too big!
The geometry of this Messenger is very similar to Hoss, especially when it comes to wallet, phone, etc. - and it will hold an 8-1/2x11 binder and a tablet. It just doesn't have to gatemouth into holding a 15" laptop.
