Dooney & Bourke Smooth Leather Medium Backpack - Murphy is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful leather. I purchased this backpack but us it like a handbag. The leather is amazing, so soft and buttery. The straps are smooth. The only downside is that there is no RFID protection. So if it’s on your back someone can steal your card information without you ever knowing. D&B get with the times. Even the cheaper handbag makers have the RFID features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional for my needs I’m a sports mom so this bag fits my weekend needs. The outside pockets on each side nor the zipper pocket can fit my cellphone with the case on. It has a lot of room and pockets in the inside. I’ve had this bag for about 2 months the non leather straps are very sturdy. For a medium backpack it’s smaller than I anticipated however it works for my weekend adventures.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I tried my hardest to love this bag. Love the color, quality and structure however, the two pulls in the front made it almost impossible to snap close. I tried tucking the strings behind the snap and that worked great but then I couldn't open the bag wide enough to get my wallet in and out. Also, the outside pockets aren't wide enough to hold my smart phone. It would only go in about 2 inches. I have 12 Dooney's and love them all but this one just didn't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Though, I would recommend to a friend...it Was not functional for me. The pockets on outside could not hold my Windows phone; and I would like cell at palm reach without digging around in the bag, where all things whine up that is thrown in. Also, I hoped for the sling bag fee where it would fit comfortably to the side under my arm, but it's to bulky to every be that, and the color trim on bottom was not as I expected. I thought black would mean all black except for drawstring and zipper, as a result I returned. Could work for someone for sure, just not as functional for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Rose Color This bag is perfect in every way. I ordered this bag in anticipation of summer day trips. Unfortunately I am sending it back, not because of any fault of the bag. Because of pain in my shoulder, I found it awkward to wear. Plus I feel that this style is a little young for me. I love this color Rose and hope to find it in more styles. Would love to see the large Trixie in this color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL, but... I love Dooney but this one I had to send back. The opening bothered me; it seemed tight/small. I had to wiggle my wallet to get it out. The straps adjusters- to have it comfortable on my back, the buckle hit me right in the pit of my arm so I had to choose- have it to low on my back or have it hurt me. The outside slit pocket were just for show. I couldn’t get my hand or umbrella in it. It’s beautiful and has very good quality, as all Dooney bags, but this just didn’t work for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely bag, just too small for me Had to return unfortunately. Loved the bag, but too small to hold my laptop which was the main reason for purchasing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Functionality needs improvement I was very excited to order the med size D&B backpack purse, I really needed something that would be convenient when traveling and performing my outside sales job along with looking fashionable, however when received and took out all the stuffing and checked out the purse thoroughly and tried it on - it was a disappointment! There is a huge design flaw - the drawstring tassel position of the purse along with the purse flap closure is not user friendly or functional - it's just wonky and when the drawstring is pulled to close up the purse the tassels are positioned in way making it hard to close flap to magnet snap and not able to easily access the cute zip pocket in front. I love D&B, but this purse is not a win for me.
