Perfect Pocket Tote
Love this tote
Use this tote often, because it holds water bottles on the outside and the fabric keeps the condensation away from what is inside the tote--which is perfect for papers, Ipad, snacks, etc. I've used this bag when I travel and it's perfect. Take it to work and it's also perfect. My only disappointment is that is doesn't come in all patterns. Want to order for my daughters, but it's not available in the patterns they like. My question to Vera is: is it being discontinued...I hope not!!

At first, I thought this tote was too expensive, even though I thought it was very attractive. After they went on sale, I started to collect them, and now own 4 of them, in different colors. I use them like portable class folders. As a student of French and Italian, I take four lanquage classes a week, and use a different tote in a different color for each class. All the file folders, work books and dictionaries (I own several), plus verb conjugation books, necessary for each class stay in that class's tote. In one of the magnet pockets on each tote I keep pens, pencils, and highlighters. When it's time to go to class, I put my kiss-lock coin purse (that holds my drivers license, credit card, coins and cash) in the interior zip pocket, slip my car keys and cell phone in the second outer magnet pocket, and off I go. It is much easier to have 4 color coded class totes to grab-and-go than to be changing out a tote bag every day. I also slip my ipad into that day's bag, as I have several online lanquage apps that I use for each subject. The ipad is protected by slipping it between all the folders, and the open top allows any length folder to fit in the tote, which stands up by itself next to my chair, either in class, the library, or the coffee shop. The charger for the ipad fits in either magnet pocket with easy access. If this bag came in Portabello, I would buy it for sure.

Love this tote!
I have had this tote for a few months in folkloric and I love it!! There is no closure for this tote, but I don't ever close mine anyways. This tote is very slim and the front pockets do have a magnetic closure. I put my phone, keys, lotion and hand sanitizer in the front pockets. I take mine to work and it holds some files, a notepad, my accordion wallet, a bottle of water and there is room for more. This tote will fit a full size ipad and power cords. I put pens in the big interior pocket, but it will fit a lot more also. I really like the look of the handles with the rings, I think it gives the tote something extra!! I like that this tote holds a lot, but does not have the look of a large tote!

Perfect Pocket Tote
I have purchased 2 of these totes because they fit my needs. I need to carry water with me, pills, my tablet, papers (sometimes), a book (sometimes), keys, tissues and other etcetera! I keep my water and keys in the front pockets. I can find them easily. I have space for my tablet without worrying about other things in the bag.
If you are not going to be making additional totes in this design my life will have to change! Please continue as this is one of the best tote bag designs EVER!

The perfect bag
This is the perfect bag I'm devastated that they have stopped making it in the new colors. It holds everything I need and I love that I can slip diapers and wipes in the outside pockets. I would order this again if they decide to make it. By far my favorite Vera bag. It is the only one that I will carry in an outdated color.

The Perfect Pocket Tote is perfect
love it! this can fit almost ANYTHING, and the price is amazing! i was looking at the other reviews on how it says the inside pocket isn't very big, i found that false because i could fit my wallet and phone easily! also the inside pocket can fit a nook or kindle. Also this tote is an open top tote! i love those because thanks to that i can fit my work bingers AND my 13 inch laptop with its case on! plus the deep pockets can fit my laptop charger, water bottles and other stuff like car keys, wallets and cell phones! This is my fav vera bradley and i WILL get another!

This is my favorite tote. It is tall and slim so there is not any bulk. It is perfect for taking magazines, papers, books, laptops, kindles and/or folders anywhere. It is great to take that little bit of entertainment or work with you to your appointments. Everything just slips in the top and stays upright. It is also perfect for hiding that water bottle in the front pocket or even your umbrella. It is my go to bag, because I can still carry a bag for my little extras and not look like the bag lady.

Great for laptop "tote!"
This bag is great for slipping my laptop in for a quick trip somewhere. Slip the laptop in...my Dell Latitude fits perfectly, put the charger in the outside pocket, add a bottle of water to the other pocket, and slip on your shoulder for easy maneuverability and access wherever you go. I got it to use while my daughter was undergoing daily cancer treatments and we had lots of walking and shuttles. This one was much lighter and easier to handle than a larger laptop bag.
