I have this bag in red & enjoy it as much today as when I bought it. I also have the red leather portfolio--perfect match. The leather still looks good after daily use for at least 5 years. Great size, quality leather. Will buy another one if this ever wears out.

I use my Briefbag every Sunday for church. My books are heavy, and I have to select which books I'll use that Sunday, although I should take them all. I worry about the weight. My books fit nicely in he Briefbag, and I mainly think about the leather strap attaching to the small leather loops and breaking. Only time will tell. I still think this is a wonderful, classy bag.

Great attention to detail and quality. Worth every penny.

Love the zippers
I purchased this to replace another Levenger bag that I'd had for years. I particularly love the ability to zip all compartments, since I travel on public transportation quite a bit.

Love this bag!
I purchased this bag to replace another Majorca Briefbag I had for about 10 years. Improvements in the organizational section are great. Accommodates my slim wallet, iPhone 6, 2 pens, business cards and keys. I also like the textured leather and contrast stitching that are new since I purchased my first bag. The main compartment holds a lot and retains its slim profile. Helps me keep organized and professional when I meet clients.

A nice bag, but beware cheap hardware
A fine bag, but beware of the cheap hardware used for zippers and zipper pulls. My wife has lost no less than 4 zipper pulls due to the poor quality metal used to fasten the leather pull to the zipper. Some have been replaced by Levenger and others by local luggage repair shops, but the design is bad.
Also note that the zipper breaks down with repeated use. Currently the bag is out of commission as the main zipper no longer holds together.
My wife is unhappy with the quality of this bag, which is unfortunate. It doesn't seem to stand up to everyday use.

Great Upscale Briefbag!
Lovely leather, different pockets make it very functional, and I liked that the longer strap came off. A plus for me was the shorter handles so, unlike many bags, when I set the tote on the floor, the handles do not hang down and touch the floor. Seems more sanitary to me!

Beautiful and Functional Bag
This bag is well constructed and the leather is soft yet sturdy. I like it so much that I ordered the Majorca Expandable Laptop Bag also.

Exactly what I wanted!
When I received this bag and started to put things in it, I realized I'd been looking for/wanting a bag like this for years--and hadn't known it! It holds my laptop, phone, circa notebook(s), even a bottle of water when I don't have my laptop. As a writer for many years, I love what it holds and how it feels. I love the feel of the rolled leather handles, for example. And I can easily find everything I put in it. I agree with someone else that the leather clips, without a built-in ring, are kinda' chintzy--don't work well for the shoulder strap. I found the smell of the interior very objectionable and had to leave it open out in the sun for several days to even begin to get rid of that odor. All in all, I am a happy camper and would enthusiastically recommend this briefbag.

Light, Sleek and Functional
Very light, soft and beautiful leather briefcase made for a woman! The outer compartment area holds my 2 cell phones (one work, one personal), pens, small notepad, gloves ect. The main compartment easily holds several files and 1-2 books. I have a large collection of totes and various briefcases in search of the ultimate mix of function and style; this briefcase has it all!
