and believe me, i've carried a number of other briefcase, bags, folios, and totes, and none have ever come close to the quality, the practicality and the elegance of this one.i purchased one in espresso several years ago, and i use it almost daily. the high quality leather has held up through my abuses as i drag it around, bouncing it off whatever i bang into. the only permanent marks on it are from my cat who also thought it presented an interesting surface. i really am amazed at its endurance.in addition to being so well made, the pockets and pouches are practical and well-designed. both main pockets are accessible with double zippers, so i can open them a little or all the way. the middle pouch of the outside pocket is perfect for my cell phone, and, being right where the two zippers meet at the top, keeps it within easy reach. i did, however, add one more pen loop; two just won't suffice for me. i can pack an unbelievable amount of junk in just that outside pocket without it looking bulky or stuffed. the main pocket can hold herds of files, a bottle of water, lots of little flotsam and jetsam, in addition to my little purse. i can even carry my small laptop in it and still have room for other things. because of the two zipper design, if i need to overstuff it, i can by leaving the zippers open. there's also a roomy inside zippered compartment as well, but i don't use it much since the front pockets are so convenient.for all its utility, this is one handsome bag. i can't tell you how many people have commented on it and how many more i've noticed just eyeballing it. it is very professional looking and has a slim profile. i have wasted an enormous amount of money on so many bags in the past. some too large, too small, too heavy, too cheap looking, poorly designed. but this is the goldilocks bag -- it's just right!

I just received my red briefbag. Though I will be keeping it, I was somewhat disappointed after reading all of these reviews.To begin with, the picture of the red briefbag is misleading. Rather than a smooth-finished, crimson color, my briefbag is a VERY bright red and in a pebble finish.The lining is NOT the levenger fabric depicted in other pictures on this website. My bag is lined in a very cheap-looking nylon. I once bought a Gucci bag on eBay that turned out to be a poor fake, and this lining reminds me of that bag.It is a shame, because the bag is truly well thought-out in terms of design. Because of this, and at only 65 dollars, I will be keeping it....but I am truly relieved that I didn't order a second bag for a friend as a birthday present, as planned, because it is not as nice as pictured.I wonder if Levenger decided to manufacture some briefbags with cheaper leather and lining, then sell them on "clearance"? If so, shame on Levenger! The other, non-sale briefbags look to be of better quality. Maybe someday...

Always the best Quality
from Atlanta GA
A very good price for such a high quality bag. It is a bit large so I bought the smaller brief bag for when I am not carrying my laptop.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for College Graduate
from Spring, TX
I purchased the red Majorca Briefbag for my wonderful daughter-in-law who graduated Saturday with her Master's degree. The color is great, making a bit of a statement while still projecting a professional image. I wanted something of quality which isn't like all the rest...quality with just a hint of "attitude" and confidence. Most importantly, she loves it so that makes it perfect in my book!!!
Finally bought one!
from Colfax, CA
I have been considering this bag for quite some time but told myself that I already have too many wonderful bags. So when it went on sale, I decided to go ahead and get the saddle colored one.It is very well styled and of the quality I expect from Levenger. It holds my letter-sized bomber jacket planner with a grid-it attached, my iPad, iPhone, keys, a lipstick or two and my bomber jacket international briefcase (I use as my wallet) and a few other items. I don't think I'd carry my macbook pro in it. Although it would fit, I am concerned the weight might cause the bag to loose it's wonderful form. So it's good sized but it won't carry EVERYTHING...It looks professional, organized and feminine all at the same time. I hope Levenger decides to expand the color options beyond the black, red and saddle. The saddle color with the white stiching is very classic looking. As an artist though, I think it would still be stunning in a cordovan, light blue, sage green or even eggplant.
Lovely slim bag
from Jacksonville, FL
I highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for a professional bag that isn't just another messenger bag or briefcase. It holds my macbook air laptop and iPad easily, and I can also fit a slim volume with the two of them. The outside pocket is quite flat, so anyone with a large wallet or sunglasses case might not prefer the bag. I have enjoyed the fact that it encourages me to carry less stuff, as I have always tended in the direction of the "loose baggy monster," which is bad for your back! Exceptional quality leather, as usual from Levenger.
iPad carrier my solution
I'd been looking for a bag to carry my iPad for some time. Needed something with a strap, large enough to carry the iPad and separate keyboard, and a bright color so can't forget it's there and lose it.This is perfect on all fronts. Can double as a regular purse/iPad carrier when in my home area, and holds keyboard as well when travelling. And not bulky.Everything I've been looking for, and hoped to find from Levenger due to previous high quality items purchased.
from El Dorado Hills, CA
I've had my Majora bag for over 4 years now and love it. It is perfect for business trips where I don't need to lug my laptop to meetings. This bag does double duty as my breifcase and purse - and the slim profile makes the bag both easy to carry and classy enough to carry off as my only bag. I own the saddle color - which is a classic carmel/tan in rich, durable leather. After 4 years, my bag still looks new. Would highly recommend to anyone who doesn't want a big bulky "man-sized" briefcase. This beauty is streamlined yet hightly functional - and practical. I'm back to purchase another in black,
Useful, Beautiful Bag
Like other Levenger products I have bought over the years, this arrived wrapped in a soft cloth bag fastened with a silky braided rope. The case is high quality leather with edged leather details on interior pockets, leather tabbed zipper pulls, nice cloth lining and firm handles, all stitched well and edges perfect- a high quality product. The wide top opening allows me to carry my 15 x 101/2 inch laptop, although I don't do that often, and the case is capable of carrying my large scheduling notebook and work files, books, wallet, gloves, keys, pens, cell phone, etc, in a zipped neat case. It will stand up when zipped open for easy loading and checking contents. Since I am not fond of a shoulder strap, I only wish it had slightly longer handles for slinging over my shoulder when hands are full of other bundles. The saddle color is a vintage medium brown. Professional - lightweight.
this bag is worth it...every penny
from Spokane WA
it is with a heavy heart that I finally lay to rest my first redMajorca Briefbag...it has served me faithfully for 10 years, through overloading, rain, and snow. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received on this bag, I always looked pulled together (whether I was or not). ...the bag makes it look like you are. I recently noticed the red chewed up drink circle on it, where did that come from???, the scuffing from years of use....I am actually talking myself out of getting another bag. Maybe a trip to the shoe repair man and a good polishing could salvage it?
lovely at first, but falls apart
I ordered this bag because I have been so pleased with the Majorca laptop bag I have had for nearly five years now, which looks as beautiful and works as well as the day I received it. When my job changed so that I did not need to tote my laptop around I was happy to be able to size down. The leather and color are beautiful, but I started losing zipper pulls within a few months, and now three years later there are none left, and the main zipper is broken and irreparable, making the bag completely unusable. Given the way the zipper is inserted (which makes it very functional and allows the bag to open wide for loading) the zipper is essentially impossible to replace, so it would cost nearly as much to fix as it would to replace the bag. I am disappointed, because I invest in quality leather goods with the hope they will last, and that I will be able to get them repaired.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
