Marley Multi Pocket Urbanizer
Love this bag!
Since my husband has hidden it for Christmas (even though I ordered it!), these are HIS words: "Beautifully made, very supple leather, convenient and well organized". I've been looking for a bag like this for several years and just know it will function well and fulfill my wishlist!

I love the Marley Urbanizer (mu). If it was a little larger and the strap was removable and more substantial, it would be the absolute perfect wallet/purse for me.
Unfortunately, while traveling last week, the strap came right out of the seam. I will try super glue before just replacing it, but now I'm worried by how the think strap makes it easier to steal the MU (I'm in major cities regularly).
The strap on the Carezza Organizer (co) looks much more reliable, and it's detachable. Unfortunately, the CO does not have the pockets and dividers I rely on, so it isn't a great option for me.
I use my MU as my wallet and purse, so it is very heavily used. I like the size and shape (short and deep) because I can the bag itself into a purse when I am not in a casual situation, rather than having to move what I need to a standalone wallet. For it to truly double as a wallet, it would be helpful if the strap was removable, as with the CO.
I may try the Marley Crossbody, but it is taller and not as deep, so it will not stand up when set down and it is probably too tall to use as a wallet in other purses.
Do you have any new urganizer-like purses or an updated version in the works?

I was concerned that the color would turn out to be garish, but it is a beautiful deep plum. Also, I usually carry larger bags, and had some doubt this would hold all I need to carry. It's like one of those old cartoon tents--tiny on the outside, but huge on the inside. I'm amazed at how simple it makes organizing my "stuff".

Great Purse-magnet malfunctions
I have bought all of my purses at Levenger for the last 7 years. Great quality and great designs. I have 3 Marley purses. I purchased this one for a trip because of its size. I love the Marley because it is the easiest and most organized purse I have ever had. Although I love this purse, I need to exchange it for the second time. This is the second time the magnet has become misplaced. It actually has found its way to the bottom of the purse and is no longer able to slide back to the position it needs to be to function. This leaves the compartment with my cash and cards a bit vulnerable. My dilemma is--do I give this purse a 3rd chance?

Love this purse!
I already have the brown purse and loved it so much I just ordered the plum one. This purse is great large enough to hold what I need and small enough to not have 40lbs of weight on my shoulder. The leather holds up well and the construction is strong enough to last everyday use.I like the adjustable strap so that I can wear it cross body when traveling and over my shoulder when at home around town.

Holds a LOT
This is a fantastic small bag. It holds a lot of "stuff" and I'm a person who always seems to need a little more space. I have only one other small bag that can carry everything I need and wanted a change. This one does it. It is also very well made and uses quality leather.

I have already received so many compliments on my wallet/purse. People are impressed when they see the wallet feature. I had been searching for something like this for a while. I carry a big purse and wanted something small that I could fit in my big purse and use when I go to the Market, shopping or other quick errands. Love It.

Picked it because it is small. Fits my new Samsung S4, pager, car keys and some money and cards. Perfect size to wear all day at work. Keeps me in touch and in style!

Small but Functional
I had a Fossil organizer bag that I have used and loved for years and was looking for a replacement. I purchased this bag in black. It is smaller than my Fossil bag, so I needed to pare down the contents of my old bag to fit the new bag. Always good to lighten the load. Only real concern is the magnetic snap on the flap. It isn't a very strong magnet - probably good for my credit cards but bad for keeping my bag closed. In general it is a nice little bag and convenient for travel.

Very nice bag
I ordered this in brown after getting the cross-body organizer and loving that purse. I do not carry large purses, so this fit the bill and is as well-made as the cross-body. My only concern is keeping credit cards in the wallet section. I wish the sides were not open. No problems so far, but security is a concern.
