Go Round Tote
Perfect Bag for the On-the-go Woman!
I was a little hesitant to buy this bag after reading some of the reviews, but I did anyways because I've been wanting a good size bag for school. I'm a professor, and sometimes, I'm gone for 10-13 hours a day on campus. I'm always on the look-out for the perfect sized bag to carry all of my daily stuff in. This is it! I LOVE it. Seriously, my favorite bag from Vera (and I have several)! On any given day, it holds the following: my full screen laptop, my wallet (which doubles as a clutch), my lunch, a day calendar, two mid-size notebooks, three books, two cans of pop, one water bottle, one cosmetic bag (the small Vera one) and misc things like gum, pens/highlighters, phone charger, etc. I know--it's a lot of stuff--but the straps are great because the bag doesn't slide down my arm, which is a big pet peeve of mine. And it doesn't seem as heavy as some of the bags I've used. All the pockets are awesome because they are really deep and nothing falls out. If you are looking for a go-to bag, this is it! Highly recommend.

Was reluctant to purchase this bag due to the breakaway zipper. I absolutely love this bag. I use it as a purse. I do not always zip it which is no problem because it really doesn't gap at the top exposing the contents. It holds a great shape. Purchased on line and had not seen in person. Was hesitant as well thinking that the outside pockets were the entire length of the bag (horizontally due to this is how it appeared to me online when actually the middle exterior pocket stops on both sides at the area of the strap line. The pockets on the ends do wrap around the end of the bag. The depth of all of the exterior pockets go to the bottom of the bag. Love it and would recommend. Have this style in multiples.

Great Bag for Everyday
I have this bag in Provencal, and it's been toted around my college, the mall, heck I used it as my carry on and it works great. People compliment me on it all the time and IT IS A GOOD PURCHASE. The only issue is the stitching has come loose and started to trail off and I've had to cut it. It still LOOKS nice, but it bugs me. Buy it while you can it's a great investment!

I Like The Wrap Around Tote Except..
This would be the perfect tote if not for that darned break-away zipper. Why on earth does Vera Bradley think anyone would actually like that feature? It is very, very annoying to say the least.

PLEASE do not discontinue this bag!
I bought this tote for school and it has turned out to be my all-time favorite. I love all the deep pockets inside and outside; they are the perfect depth for carrying a bottle of water or the case for my sunglasses and all sort of other things. I cannot believe they are discontinuing this model! The bag is simply perfect. I don't even mind if the straps are not padded although that would be a huge plus. VB, please listen to your customers and keep this model.

At first when I was presented with this bag in "Canyon", I wasn't sure if I liked the color and the bag style. But I really ended up liking the fact that it has six pockets, and so much space! I can fit a couple of textbooks, a water bottle, pens and pencils, and a cell phone. The "Canyon" color is also a nice pattern that will go with a lot of outfits for those people who want more of a neutral pattern. It's really a shame that Vera is retiring this bag because for many people, it will be the perfect sized tote.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag!!!
Seriously, I can't think of a better Vera bag. LOVE the big, deep pockets all around and the break away zipper to keep things safe. My only wish is that the 3 inner pockets were a tad deeper, but, in all, I am in love with this bag!

Larger than described
I ordered this bag because of the measurements which states it's 13 inches wide, however it is 17 inches wide. If I had known that I would not have ordered it. It is well made and would probably meet the needs of some but too big for me.

Absolute Perfect Tote for Everything!
I was a little afraid to purchase this tote after some of the reviews, but this tote is getting a bad rap. I seriously don't think these reviewers read the product description before buying. It states Breakaway Zipper, states the measurements, all the features, so why purchase knowing these features & then complain? The outside pockets are deep & roomy, the breakaway zipper if perfect, not a hassle, I place Chapstick in inner pocket & other items - nothing has ever fallen out, nor has my tote ever fallen over, it holds it shape. I place my iPhone with an otter box covering case & those cases are big, it fits perfect in a pocket on inside. This tote is Perfect & extremely comfortable to carry, light & room Galore! I carry iPad, iPhone, large cosmetic case, large Vera wallet, a Card /ID case, medicine case & still have room for planner & Book all on the inside with room to spare. Outside can hold tons more & the outside pockets are so deep, you do not have to worry about anything falling out! This Tote is getting a bad rap from some reviewers & seriously if you read tote description & measurements, you know what you are getting, it's a Great tote for daily use & I would imagine Travel as well. I load my bags/totes up for just in case, this fits the bill Perfectly! I don't understand the review about tote losing shape as it sits perfectly anywhere you place it without falling over, even empty, I have tried it! The price is Wonderful for this tote & I seriously hope they don't change a thing about this tote! It's Perfection! Don't let the negative reviews deter your decision ladies, you will be very happy about this.
