I have this in very berry paisley. It holds so much! In the small front pocket I keep my iPad mini! In the main pocket I keep my, iPad 4, iPod touch, iPod nano and shuffle, camera, headphones, and tons of tech accessories! In the side pockets I keep my iPhone with VB super smart wristlet in! Highly recommend!

I love this bag!
I'm so upset Vera is not keeping it up with the new patterns! This is my favorite bag and now cannot decide what bag to get in new patterns. ): Bring it back!

Awesome Outing Bag!
I just used this bag for an outing at the dog beach so I could be hands free walking my dog. I was amazed at how much stuff it held since I originally had planned to bring my Get Carried Away Bag. I especially love the side pockets with elastic to keep contents secure, I was able to place my iPhone 5 in one and my Camelbak water bottle in the other. It also held a book, lightweight jacket and T shirt, snacks, VB mirror cosmetic, second bottle of water, sunscreen (Full size spray) and my new All in One Cross Body, plus I even had room to spare! I can't wait to try this on my next trip to NYC! The shoulder straps are super comfy and I think this is going to be my new 'go to' bag! As an added note, I also purchased the Lg backpack in Floral Nightingale since is was on sale, but I can already see that it doesn't have the awesome features the bookbag does, mainly elastic side pockets and padded straps. If you're not sure which one to try, I'd highly recommend the bookbag!

This book bag is great for elementary school age children. My oldest has the campus book bag and that is much more spacious for binders etc. My first grader has had this for 2 years and it still looks brand new. Very durable and washes well! However, if you are looking to put large binders etc the campus book bag is better.

A College Backpack!
I bought this bag about 2.5 years ago, it is still in very good shape; no pulls at the seams. I am taking a course load that requires the carrying of large books and my laptop occasionally, this bag is able to carry all of it. The pocket in the front is great for easy access for things like pens or car keys. In addition, the side pockets for water bottles, hold my 64oz water bottles. Another reason this bag is nice, is that it is not as large as the Laptop Backpack that VB also sells. I found that the Laptop Backpack was to bulky and honestly felt like I was carrying camping gear to school.

I received this backpack last Spring in plum petals and thought it was very cute. I carried it for the rest of the previous school year and have been carrying it for all of this year. My big sister even took it to California when she went for a week this past Summer. Surprisingly the bag has not ripped or worn. The reason why I gave this item four stars is because of its size. As an eighth grader I simply need a bigger backpack , which has caused me to recently have ordered the campus backpack in Go Wild. Maybe get a different one if you have a heavy work load

Nice Bag BUT probably NOT for everyone...
This is a very stylish and cute back pack. I purchased it from one of the VB outlets in PA. The shoulder straps are EXTREMELY comfortable, especially when compared to other VB back packs [the straps are often very thin and not padded]. Not the case with this one- comfy straps that will make it much more comfortable to carry.
My problem with this bag is the space. It seemed like one of the bigger ones, and it is definitely bigger than the 'Backpack' but it is still quite compact and may not be a good choice for everybody; it really just depends what you want to use it fo. I use mine to and from work, sometimes for gym clothes and for light travel. I didn't want to buy the lap top book bag b/c that wasn't want I wanted even though that bag is bigger.
If you are looking for a bag for school/college, this probably won't be the one for you as it's quite small in the main compartment and fills up quick with your stuff.
I like the front pocket. It's durable.

I got this bag for my birthday and I love it! It is well made and very cute. The only thing I'm worried about is that it is sort of small. I hope I won't have to carry too much around during the school year, or I will have to use something else. I brought it on vacation and it was a tight squeeze, but it still worked.
