PLEASE bring this bag back!!!
I travel a ton for work and this was the best computer bag that I have ever owned. I was extremely disappointed when I went back for a replacement and learned that the style was discontinued. None of your current "computer" bags have the important features of this bag.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back this bag! It had everything a business woman looks for - a lightweight bag with a padded computer area with plenty of room for files, cords, speakers, etc. on the other side. Lots of pockets - especially the pockets made to hold business cards and pens. Zippers on the top of the bag to keep everything in when placing the bag in the airline's overhead compartment. The sleeve to go over my luggage handle was the best- no more shifting when pulling my carry-on plus computer bag in the airport. Finally, the shoulder strap was great when carrying the bag into client's offices - no need to put your bag down to shake hands.
Please reconsider the retirement of this bag! Thank you!

The bag that made me buy VB...
I had sworn for YEARS that I would never buy Vera Bradley. Never been my style, always found it overpriced.... until I wanted a bag that would fit both my laptop and DSLR but didn't look like a gear bag. I hemmed and hawed and eventually gave in - and don't regret it for a second. This bag is everything I thought it would be and more. The sleeve that lets it fit over my rolling luggage handle is the cherry on top of a bag that's durable and big enough to fit my 13" Macbook, DSLR with padding, cords, everything I'd normally carry in my purse, and more. I love that it's conspicuous enough so it doesn't scream "thousands of dollars worth of electronics in this bag". Every once and awhile I'll come here to check if this bag is still available - seeing as how it's apparently being discontinued, which is a REAL shame, I'd think about getting a second one in a different color before it's too late. Nothing else they make compares to what I've found in this bag! I'm officially a VB convert!

my favourite bag
I love this bag. I use is for everything. It's my weekender, my travel bag, and my school bag when I'm feeling dressy. It fits everything I need and hasn't failed me once.

I take this bag with me every time I go on a trip. It easily fits my 17" laptop in the sleeve, chargers for my iPhone and laptop, my DSLR in its case (which is also Vera Bradley) or my purse, my Flip camera and digital camera in one pocket and my DS and its charger in the other pocket. It's so easy to put the bag on the handle of my suitcase when we unpack the car or get our luggage from the airport. I also carry it as a crossbody and while its heavy with all my things, the strap is not too short. I love this bag and I'm disappointed that it's being retired! It's a must have for people who travel frequently or have lots of stuff to tote around.

Must Have Travel Bag
I bought this wanting a safe place for my laptop when I travel. Using this bag gives me easy access to take my laptop out for airport security and keep all my other stuff such as the computer charger, work files, folders, magazines, lunch, wristlet or wallet. Everything I hoped it would do for me has exceeded my high expectations. The bag improved my organization for travel and quickened my packing process. It easily fits under the seat in front of me on the plane which keeps my personals safe and easily accessible. I cannot understand why this bag would be discontinued. BEST travel bag VB has ever made.

BEST BAG FOR SCHOOL/WORK/TRAVEL
This bag has gotten me through undergraduate school with the perfect amount of space for everything (laptops large and iPads small, textbooks, notebooks) that you could need for a class or five. I used it afterwards for working full-time, and am buying another one now for graduate school, PRAYING THEY DO NOT DISCONTINUE THEM, because this bag is amazing. I have been giving it a break recently, but its great as a travel carry-on and overnighter as wheel. It is literally my favorite Vera ever, after the large duffel. Please bring it back- I'd love to be able to buy it in "heather".

Best Organizational Bag
I love this bag! The organization in this bag in unbelieveable. I have 4 of these bags and would have more if they didn't discontinue it. PLEASE PLEASE bring it back.

I had the original Metropolitan bag from back in the 90's and was devastated when they stopped making it. I have replaced the handles and was limping it along until I could find a replacement that I loved as much. I was so happy when this arrived and I started putting all my work documents and computer in the bag. It had all the room that I needed and can pack it as full as my old bag. I am thrilled with the new Metropolitan!

My beloved Vera Metro
I live in Athens, Greece and my husband brought me my first Vera, a Metropolitan Rythm and Blues color from Orlando, FL., in 2011. I absolutely adore that bag. It holds all my things and it impresses even males. It stays in place, always a "lady" in style, as it doesn'tlook like an ordinary laptop bag. Especially the outer zipped pocket is so useful for my credit card, pens, change. It also holds my notebook in place and it doesn't become much heavier. This summer I realized that the model is discontinued and I asked my son to bring me one more -the Plum Petals - which was on sale. It's a pity we can't find this model in the fabulous new colors.

I use this as a Diaper Bag & I love it!!!
I bought this as a Diaper Bag. I am a mother of 2 & this bag is amazing! I use the strap across my chest so I can have both hands. With this bag, I don't have a shoulder strap that keeps falling off my shoulder while I'm trying to carry an infant carrier and hold my other son's hand. The inside pocket is great of storing extra clothing. The other inside pockets hold baby food, lotion etc. The outside pocket has a place for money and your Id/debit card. I love this bag! As a 2nd time Mom, I knew exactly what I needed. I had the vera diaper bag with my 1st son and it always came off my shoulder. With this bag that never happens.. and it sits right on my hip so I can easily get things in and out without setting it down! Great BAG! Have purchased several for Baby shower gifts!
