Marley Teardrop Multt Zip Backpack
smaller than expected
The bag appears somewhat larger on the model than it is in real life. This bag won't hold as much as you think it will from the photo. My only complaint about quality is that two of the back panels are relatively smooth leather, while the third is noticeably more pebbled.

Great for travel
I purchased this bag to use on a trip with my daughter and toddler and baby. I wanted to have both hands free to help. It was perfect for carrying just the essentials. Love the pockets for phone, pens, glasses etc. and the side pockets for small items such as eye drops and pills. I kept my drivers license, credit cards and cash in the lower zipper pocket which is safely against your back when you wear as a backpack. Beautiful soft leather and classy look. My only disappointment is that the bag cannot hold both my iPad and a water bottle and still zip shut, I had to choose one or the other. A somewhat wider version of the bag would be great.

Love the bag, but wish it were bigger
I agree with the folks that said the size was a bit too small. You can (barely) fit an iPad in the bag, and it doesn't leave room for anything else. Forget about putting in sunglasses in a hard case, or a makeup bag or a hairbrush. My keyring with auto, home, office and misc. keys doesn't fit with an iPad in this bag.
I love the design and look of the bag. But, I can't use this bag for work during the week- not enough room. I only use it for errands or short appointments.
LEVENGER- please make a thicker version of this bag! Any how about getting more colors for the Staff bag and the Carezza Organizer Handbag!!! Red, purple, blue would be great. I'd have more Levenger bags if they came in colors other than black or brown

Love this handbag
I purchased this bag--in black--before going on a trip to London. It was perfect--practical and good-looking. I like the way that it lays fairly flat on your back and has zip pockets hidden from view. The straps are also just wide enough. I've had similar-looking bags that didn't lay flat, that had safety issues, and had too-narrow straps. The leather is beautiful and the inside lining is light so that you can find things. I'd love to own this in other colors, especially plum.

Needs another inch....
I bought this bag in part because of the review stating that I could carry my iPad in it. That is true - if the iPad is naked. If you use even a skinny protective sleeve, however, the iPad does not fit without leaving the zipper open a little - which is what I ultimately did. On a recent trip to Turkey, I used a backpack as a carry-on, then pulled this out of my suitcase to use during day excursions, when I needed only a few things. Perfect! It was secure, my hands were free, and it was very light.

Wish I had purchased it sooner
To be perfectly honest, I have been dog-earring this item for years. It is everything the catalog says it is and more. It is so comfortable to wear you forget that it is there.

My weekender bag
I like to go to Farmer's Markets on weekends and this bag is perfect for me to manage lots of bags in my hand or shoulder. It is not too bulky and the leather is so soft and I also love the side pockets.

Stylish and Functional
This bag is awesome, because it provides numerous pockets to keep the woman on the go very organized. Also, it has a beautiful, classy style and feels butter soft to the touch. It will definitely become the bag of choice whether running errands around town or dressing to impress for that all important business meeting!

I ordered this bag because I wanted a dressier but functional everyday purse. I really do like it and I does hold everything that I like to carry in a bag. I would like it better if it were just a little bit bigger. I holds my iPad, but just barely. It's plenty roomy without the iPad, however. The leather is beautiful, and the purse is a good price for the quality. I got the red backpack and the color is a nice, rich red.

Best small backpack ever!
This bag is perfect! I love having just what need close by and my hands free. I purchased it to travel - large enough to have carry the essentials (phone, wallet, etc..), but small enough to drop down into my carryon. (It is small enough I don't need to take it off to go to the restroom) I found it so functional I have given up my regular purse and just use it! Great to have my valuables on my body while I shop and have my hands free. I now have black and red - hoping they soon make it in Eggplant! The leather is soft/supple and the straps just the right size.
