        Comments about Levenger Bomber Jacket® Expandable Brief:

        For a leather bag that is so deliciously supple it is also remarkably sturdy. After being in the market for a bag that I could use as my daily office carrier for a few months, I bought this bag as a gift to myself when it went on sale. Even on sale it was a little rich for me but I justified the purchase with Levenger's one-year warranty. When it arrived, I was pleased to see that the stitching, hardware and zippers were all of superior quality. This bag constantly surprises me with what I can manage to fit in it's sizable interior and exterior pockets. The shoulder strap is minimal but sturdy. This bag will reward you with compliments from your family and friends and you're colleagues will envy it. Six months after purchase, it still looks brand new. For those reasons that I have to give this bag an all-around 5 Star rating. I've found my source for fine leather goods in Levenger and just made my second purchase.

              I'm a lawyer that goes to court every day, twice a day, with anywhere from 2 to 20 files at a time. Love that this brief bag is expandable, smaller for fewer files, expandable for more files or for a trial file. Designed perfectly for what I do, enough pockets and dividers but not too many. This is my second one, the first one I got about 5 years out of it until the zippers gave out from constant daily use, not a criticism of the product, I didn't expect it to last forever. Two upgrades with the newer model, leather under the should strap instead of cloth, and one side pocket now with magnetic closure instead of former model that had belts/buckles that were too much trouble to ever use. Highly recommend.

                    The Bomber Jacket product is a real "bomb"! My wife and I gave it as a special gift to one of our sons-in-law, who recently completed a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering. His extraordinary comment to us was, "I have never received such a marvelous gift as this one, and I am so blessed by you all. This is the best gift I have ever gotten! " We were thrilled because he was so overjoyed with receiving such a quality, features, and usefulness of this gift as he started his new career in civil engineering.

                          Got this bag for fathers day and love it. It's big enough for my computer and projector, all of the cables and handouts.
                          The only problem was that the shoulder strap rivet broke.
                          Levenger replaced the bag and I'm back on the road.
                          Great customer service.

                                I love this bag. Very stylish and should last the rest of my career. The bag has great functionality and comfortably fits when walking any distance. It fits everything for work and I use it for personal trips given it's expandable size. The only reason I gave it a 4-star rating on quality was because I had to return twice over a 2 year period. Once a buckle stopped working, then a clasp broke. I just called about the broken clasp and was told they've replaced the buckles with magnetic connectors that you won't see on the outside. The rest of the bag is identical, outside stitching and all. I'm getting a brand new replacement bag so should be no more quality issues. Definitely recommend the newly designed bag.

                                      I use this for vacation travel. I can fit all my tech gadgets, cameras & lenses, & since I'm old, my pill trays to carry on. I usually fly Southwest nonstop, so I just check my suitcase of clothes & toiletries, & have all my gadgets & books with me in a comfortable. I've been a customer since forever & have been very satisfied. I have a bunch of treasured items they no longer carry. Highly recommend Levenger.

                                            When I first saw this bag I loved it. I wanted a dark leather look that could carry all my cpa exam study materials and my other work stuff.
                                            Never had a nice leather bag and was very excited to get this. However the construction of the bag is clearly not top notch because my second bag just broke.
                                            The first bag I had for only two days and as I picked up the bag the strap broke off. Levenger couldn't have had been more helpful and sent me a new one.
                                            The second one I've had for about a week or so and I've been extremely cautious about it. The tubing was not straight and I was concerned about and I even asked levenger about it and I was just told that their warranty was five years.
                                            An hour ago, I was packing up from work and I couldn't get the zipper around the top. I thought it was normal as these zippers are not very smooth, just accepted that as part of the bag. But the zipper wouldn't go over at all. I looked at the stitching and realized a part of the zipper was not attached any more and it flicked off. I'm very frustrated with this whole ordeal and I don't think I can handle getting a third one to try out.
                                            The worst part is that this is the type and look of a bag I want. The other thing to note is that the bag bends more than I had thought. I assumed it was stiff and wouldn't curve around my body. Oh well, will try something else.

                                                  This is a perfect product in terms of serving its function perfectly and being of the highest quality. The problem is that it does not have a compatible laptop sleeve like the previous model.

                                                        I have several Levenger products and this bag is one of my treasured pieces. I also have the backpack brief, but I moved into a new position at work that requires more space in my bag for notebooks and a laptop. This bag fits the bill perfectly. It looks and feels amazing. I haven't had to expand it yet and I have filled it full...laptop, circa folio, books, phone, wallet, pen case, tech roll case...all of it fits with no problem.
                                                        The pockets in the front flap area are generous and well placed. The zipper compartments are very generous and the laptop compartment is sturdy and secure. One of the things I love about the Bomber products is the liner...it's so classy and a nice touch with the luxurious leather. And speaking of the leather...it's luxe all the way.
                                                        The shoulder strap is a nice size and the shoulder pad stays put! I'm 6'5" and have trouble finding bags that will hang right and stay put. This bag is one of the first I've had that I don't have to continuously reposition when I carry it on one shoulder.
                                                        The handles are nice and big as well. Overall, if you work in a professional environment and need a bag that exudes style and professionalism, this fits the bill. I constantly get comments on it. I'm anxious to travel with it to test its true capacity. I hope to have this bag for a long, long time!

                                                              May be the best briefcase I have ever owned, The attn to detail, the zippered compartments, the side pouch make this well worth the price not to mention the quality of the leather.
                                                              It's sturdy,well designed and yet professional enough looking
                                                              for court. Just a high quality briefcase which is why I shop at Levengers
