A genius product in every way!
LOVE this purse wallet, and hope they never discontinue it! Have used one for several months straight as a total purse and I love it because:
Cell phone fits into the snap expandable pocket; keys fit into zipper pocket; has several card slots; checkbook fits inside; money/coin pockets; it's lightweight; fits easily over shoulder/across neckline for hands-free shopping; fun/feminine style and not bulky; AND the magnetic closure is very tight and secure-it's never fallen open or come undone (which was one of my concerns before purchasing it). And if you're even extra-worried about it, easy to add snaps or velcro under the flap. Completely great product, and especially great for anyone with neck/back/shoulder problems, or ladies that just don't want a bulky purse to carry around.

favorite wallet ever!
This is the perfect wallet. It fits inside my purses but I also take it out and carry it, instead of my purse. I love it!

all in one
I use this to carry with me while I shop so I don't have to carry my purse.This is a tremendous help to my neck and shoulders.I just take it out of my purse and it has everything I need-ID,credit cards,cash,change. I hate to see this go.Nothing else on Vera can replace this.

One of my 2 favorite wallets
I need a wallet that holds coins, credit cards and bills at the least. This shoots almost all of the wallets as most cannot accommodate these 3 things - except the Sleek Wallet and if you need something for a smaller bag, the Euro Wallet. This holds eall those things plus my checkbook. I keep change in what they call the cell phone pocket (were cells ever THAT SMALL??) and stamps in the zippered pocket since it is pretty small for change. Closes well even filled with stuff, ID card pocket is a little hard to get the ID out of, but I just don't shove it all the way in. Have an iPhone and no turning on or off. No credit card erasures THAT I KNOW OF but will watch for that. I think it's discontinued, so get it while you can since there is nothing by Vera that hold this much stuff.

This is my favorite Vera product to date! I've been purchasing Vera for over 5 years and this has to be my favorite. There are plenty of card slots for debt/credit cards and the ID slot has enough space to insert/remove your ID without any problems. Holding money, checks, and reciepts is no problem as you have two places to put them (great for keeping money and reciepts separated) and better yet, they get to stay crisp and straight. The small zip pocket is great for change and business cards. The snap pocket is perfect for holding applicator-less tampons. My most beloved feature is that I can leave the straps on, neatly tuck them away and use it as a wallet inside my large bags, but ditch the huge tote, take out the straps and toss my phone in the top length-wise slot (I have a G2).

Sadly, Must Return
Gave a 5-star product just 1 star simply because I can't use it. The wallet has many good features. The size is fine. I like the removable shoulder strap, which can be worn over the shoulder or crossbody. The strap would be even better if it had a slide buckle to adjust the length. The snap pocket is not big enough for most phones (I have a Droid 2), but is handy for stashing the coiled shoulder strap when not in use. The zip pocket is perfect for coins. I like the 2 full-length compartments: you can use 1 for bills & the other for receipts. There is only 1 reason for my return: the magnetic closure. Anytime my phone gets near the wallet, the screen turns on & stays on until I move it far enough away from the wallet. In my handbag, the phone screen stays lit perpetually. I don't dare put credit cards in - or even near - that wallet. I do love the wallet & hate to give it up. Ladies, please consider doing away with these magnets in your designs. I won't buy even large pieces if they have any magnets like this; it's too risky. If you redesign this wallet, I will surely purchase the new version. I would not suggest a velcro closure, however, as velcro wears out over time. Your pieces are so well-constructed, I'm afraid the wallet would outlive its velcro closure! I am relatively new to Vera Bradley, but I have a few other pieces & I quickly became a fan within days of using my first piece. Thank you for creating beautiful quality products.

Not Well Designed
This is not a very practical wallet. I ordered this in Very Berry Paisley and was the only time I've ever been disappointed in a product from VB. It is WAY to big, you have to turn it sideways to fit in the Olivia purse! The ID compartment is really small and you can't see part of your ID when you put it in there. The cell phone pocket only fits small phones, no smartphones or regular sized phones will fit! The dollar bills stick out of the bill pockets! The strap could easily snag on something, and this would be really easy for a thief to target when you leave it on a chair back at restaurants and such. Just don't leave it unnattended! Also, another reviewer said you could use the strap as a lanyard, but it's really long! I recommend clipping one end of the strap to the other clip on the other end.

I love the sleek wallet so much I purchased 4 more styles. It is ideal for shopping or whatever you want to do. I use these more than my purses.

My all-in-one organizer (keys included)
This is my favorite item and the first item that my teenage daughter and I both love. I love that the strap is detachable because I unhook one end and slide my key ring on it and then hook the strap back. When I go shopping, I just take the wallet and my keys are with it. When I put the wallet in a bigger purse, I never have to dig for my keys because I know they are attached to the wallet. The strap is long enough that I don't have to take the keys off to use them.

My favorite Vera purchase so far
This wallet is fantastic. I now have 2 of them. The magnetic closure makes it a breeze to open & shut, and I have NEVER had a credit card or hotel card key get wiped out or effected in any way by it, on either wallet. There are plenty of credit card slots.
I love the fabric as a pose to leather, I have a police badge pin that I never could pin on my other wallets, but with the fabric, I am able to pin it right next to the I.D. window that my drivers license is in.
****My ONLY complaint - and I am hoping the "Vera people" are reading this...is that they come out with a sleek wallet that has a pocket for a cell phone. Then I would truly be complete! Right now, I have to put my cell phone in my pocket when I carry this as my only bag. I did try the carry all wristlet, since that has a cell phone pocket. But the wallet part does not hold as much as this one.
