    One of the best work/life bags I’ve owned., December 18, 2013

    Like many women, my bag is my portable life, so it takes a lot of research to find one that does everything I need it too. This one hits on all cylinders. First, it helps me stay organized. If you like exterior pockets, you know they can be hard to find. This one has one outside pouch that is roughly 9″w x 8″h — large enough for everything I want easy access to (sunglasses, keys, phone, etc.). Inside, there are several more pockets in the lining, each roughly the size of an eye-glasses case or a mini umbrella; one wide zippered pocket is perfect for cosmetics; and the main compartment is divided into two sections. (I use one half for work stuff, the other for personal stuff.) Second, it’s beautifully made. The leather is soft and gorgeous, the stitching is tight, the bottom corners are reinforced with more leather, and it has metal “feet” on the bottom, so it can stand up on its own. I don’t usually carry my laptop, but the padding inside would provide ample protection without being too bulky. Third, it’s the perfect size (for me). I can easily slide in several manila folders (or a change of clothes) and my iPad, and it still zips up nicely, but I don’t feel like it’s size overwhelms me. (I’m 5′ 2″.) It’s a little weighty even when empty, but that’s true of all leather bags.The handles are comfortable on my shoulder and long enough to hang comfortably, but I can also hang it from my elbow when needed. In short, I don’t expect to to go bag hunting again any time soon — unless I decide to get the exact same bag in another color!

    This review is from: Le Donne Leather Women’s Laptop Tote
    This bag has nice construction for the price point. It is a little smaller than I would like. I can get my 15″ laptop and a few work files in it as well as a few accessories – pens, calculator, phone. It is snug and I have to get the laptop in and then have to hold the bag open to keep from snagging the folders on the accessory pockets. If you aren’t looking to carry much, the size would probably work well. The bottom is designed to stand up, but it doesn’t work once you have anything with any weight to it (ie, laptop). None of my prior bags have either, so not a big deal for me, but it might be for others. The big issue that I have with this bag is dye transfer. Every time I set the bag on my desk, I wind up with black dye on my desk, so I took off two stars for that issue. I now need to figure out how to seal it and I don’t feel that I should have to deal with that.
