I saw this Longchamp bag first in South Korea while someone else was wearing it. I had three other Longchamp bags before then but they were all over arm handbag. These gave me some slight discomfort on my arm so when I saw the Longchamp Le Pliage backpack I wanted to try something that would free up my hands.
The quality of the bag is alright and it seems like it will be fine for 2 years. I like how the material of the bag shimmers in the sun. As it is made out of fabric, the edges of it get torn easily. It also stains easily so you want to be extra careful with it or just avoid the lighter colours.
“There is only one compartment that’s inside the zipper…”
The bag is actually quite spacious despite looking very small. You can adjust the straps to your preferred fit and the zippers never gave me any issues. The printed logos on them look pretty good and add a nice touch to it. There is only one small compartment that’s inside the zipper where you can put your contents in.
The handbag sits on my back quite well and very comfortably. I don’t carry it by hand as it is a backpack but you could do that if you wanted to.
Do you want to know why you see so many ladies carrying Longchamp handbags?
The Longchamp Le Pliage backpack is my everyday go to bag. It is the perfect bag for most times other than dress up occasions. Do you want to know why you see so many ladies carrying Longchamp handbags? It is because they are so light. I am very happy with the purchase I made in the duty free shop during my travels.
I had a lighter colour Longchamp bag in another model handbag which got stained. The cost of dry cleaning it was half the price of the bag so I didn’t bother doing so. The Longchamp Le Pliage backpack is also subject to the same issues, so you want to be extra careful with it.
I would have preferred if there were other compartments on the outside of the bag as well for me to quickly access while on my back. Instead you always have to take the bag off to put in or take anything out of it.
As it doesn’t have any compartment inside the backpack either, you will have to use your own small pouches from elsewhere to separate your items. That is unless you don’t mind taking everything out to find a single item, you can freely toss everything inside the bag.

Longchamp bags are definitely my ‘go to’ bags for everyday use. They are reasonably priced and even though it can be fragile since it is fabric, I would still consider purchasing another Longchamp bag. These types of light and sleek handbags are hard to find. The Longchamp Le Pliage backpack comes in many colours and materials but if you really like the design of this backpack, there is a leather version of it as well. Ooh… somebody is going shopping soon.
