I have long been on the hunt for a purple leather tote that would 1) hold my laptop and necessary peripherals (pens, cords, letter-size circa notebook [1-inch rings], 3x5 notecards, the occasional book, etc.) and 2) had a long enough handle drop to accommodate my (rather large) upper arms. The Fortunata Tote is the Holy Grail.

Not only does it carry everything I need it to on a daily basis (NB: I carry a purse as well, so I don't try to cram too much into the tote), it also works for travel, holding my kindle, my phone/wallet, my glasses case, and other necessities in addition to the day-to-day work equipment and supplies. It's clearly the high-quality, long-lasting, hard-wearing leather that I've come to expect from Levenger bags. I look forward to years of use out of this sturdy and highly attractive bag!

The quality of the bag is excellent as one would expect from Levenger.
Be smart about why you are ordering this bag. It is a black hole style, as 'tote' would suggest. At the same time, it's snug. It doesn't fit a 14" laptop with circa notebook and work binder with wallet, phone, and 'personal items.' There are only 2 inner pockets, whereas all other Levenger products that I've owned were made to provide distinct organization. I am still trying to find additional bags to place within this one to create a placement system for regularly used items. (I bought a pen case, and Your Bag Your Way.) Two side pockets on this tote are for documents only. This is obviously not the fault of Levenger, just don't want someone to order this under the wrong impression.

Great work bag

By

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

I travel to work via train everyday, the slip pockets are fantastic and convenient. The slip pockets are very deep so no worries about a zipper closure. The inside has a lot of room which is important. The cost was great, I waited for a terrific sale then purchased my bag. I love my bag.

The exact bag I was looking for to replace an old favorite!

By 

from San Bruno, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

I purchased a tote from Levenger many many years ago. So much so that the color is fading, but it's still my favorite tote for trips, customer visits, going to meetings, and for classes where many things of different dimensions need to be brought. I saw this tote, I read the reviews, found a discount day and ordered it. I love it...it is almost the same size as my old favorite, but can hold my 15 inch laptop with no problem and room to spare. It stands up nicely. I have used it first for voice class holding my Levenger Softfolio pad with my sheet music, my Levenger Carrezza leather hobo bag, and my water bottle; with room to spare. Great value and quality. I don't need a lot of compartments, I just wanted something with long handles, leather, the right size, and a full zipper across the top of the main compartment. This was just what I wanted.

Great quality but a dissapointment.

By 

from SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

The quality is outstanding as always, but I was disappointed because this version is not as versatile as the one that I have been using for 8 years. The outside pockets have no zipper, so I cannot use them for items that can come out, like keys, iphone, etc. This is especially important to me when I have to put the bag in plane storage bin. So, it works OK for every day use (car, office), but I cannot take it with me in plane trips. There is a single compartment for everything and only one internal pocket with zipper. My old bag had two compartment separated by zippered middle sleeve where I used to store things that I do not need all the time, like personal effects, passport, etc. I never used the side compartment for a water bottle as intended, but it was great for sunglasses and a small medicine bottle. I have to get a new bag because one of the handles is coming apart at the seams and I cannot afford to lose one handle while while going through security or immigration. In the new bag, everything has to go in one single compartment, which makes it difficult to put the computer back in, without taking out the umbrella, the notebooks, the wallet, and anything else I happen to need that day in the bag. If I find a leather shop that can replace the handle in my old bag while maintaining the current length and the appearance, I will go not use again the new bag.

Disappointing - Not the Fortunata Style I Valued

By 

from Atlanta GA

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

As a devoted Fortunata Fan, I knew the quality of the bag would be excellent and it was. However, this new "Fortunata Tote" is not what it used to be. I purchased my first Fortunata Tote in 2010, and I was thrilled to see it available in Grape. The color is a subtle, lovely deep purple. I own two Fortunata Totes - red and brown - that I use for work and travel. Unfortunately, this new style, as another reviewer noted, is a significant downgrade in the bag's functionality. There are fewer pockets, no place for pens (or my Levenger Carezza Double Pen Sleeve), no center pocket (very important!), and no key fob. The original Fortunata was useful and provided a distinct organization benefit. This bag is essentially black hole style bag. I am sorry to say that even at the sale price, this new tote with fewer features is not a good value for me. Sadly, it is being returned.

I love this bag.

By 

from Portland Oregon

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

I love this bag. It's large enough to fit my small laptop and writing pad but isn't heavy when full. The inside and outside pockets are very convenient. The straps stay on my shoulder well. The leather's really nice, it feels and smells really good.

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

I loved this bag at first, but it now slumps and isn't holding its shape. It's perfect if you limit use to carrying or hanging and not expect it to "stand."

Excellent Purchase

By 

from TN

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

This product was just the right combination of looking slim-lined and professional while also being able to carry quite a bit. It holds letter and legal files, iPads and iPhones, has pockets to hold other items so you don't necessarily have to carry a purse. It also "stands on its own" easily, which is a big plus. Purchased the dark eggplant, which was the right balance for me, colorful but professional. Bought it when it was on sale, which made it an even better value.

Fortunate Choice!

By 

from Albuqueque, NM

Comments about Levenger Fortunata Tote:

This is a bag that stays put navigating busy mid high halls crammed with jostling students and lockers. Not only does the Fortunata stay put perched on my shoulder but holds essentials folders, homework papers, iPad, iPhone comfortably. With the added wristlet (in grape to match) my personal effects are secure and easily obtained when needed. Definitely worth the price and sustains Levenger's reputation for quality!
