I absolutely love my Vera tote! I currently use it for work. It's big enough to carry my Vera Bradley cooler, my Vera Bradley agenda and a pair of shoes. I used to contantly misplace my desk key. Now, I keep my desk key on my Vera Bradley lanyard which conveniently clips to the pocket of my tote. The mulitiple pockets keep me organized. I constantly get compliments on my tote as it coordinates with my cooler and lanyard. It's everything I ever wanted in a tote and more!

Perfect Knitting Tote!
The Vera is the perfect bag for knitting supplies. It has lots of room and the inner pockets are great for needles and other small things you might need. I also love the length of the handles and the height of the bag. I definitely recommend it! My favorite Vera Bradley purchase :)

Love the 'Vera' bag
My husband originally bought me one of these purses to carry my Quilting in... a large quilting ring fits nice in here... he had no idea this was a 'Purse'. A couple months later and we have a new 2lb. Toy Fox Terrier puppy and my Quilting carrier becomes our puppy carrier... she learned Not to make any noise if I told her to "Hide". This purse is still big enough for her at 5lbs to hide in, so to this day, 12 years later I can Still take her in ANY Store OR Restaraunt and Nobody knows she's in there.... the pockets around the inside are perfect for wallets, checkbooks, keys etc so that a 'blankie' can be put in the middle for her to lay comfy on while she waits for us. I just wish the cost would stop going up... I do not believe these are made in the US either... for the price they Should Be!

My amazing, great for EVERYTHING tote
I purchased this "tote" in English Meadow with the purpose of using it while out and about for large items, but let me tell you what I've found... this is my "go to" bag from VB. I absolutely LOVE it!! I have many other bags from VB including the hipster, backpack, and a few of the larger totes, but this is the perfect size for anyone who is constantly on the go and needs to have "more" space available at any given time. It also is lined with 6 slip pockets that fit anything from cell phones, ipods, makeup, first aid kits or just whatever you need them for!! That does not even include the inside zippered pocket and the outer zipper and slip pocket with key clip! It has come in handy so much with having 3 kids who are constantly giving me things to hold onto for them. Well, guess what? With this bag, there is plenty of room to carry all your essentials PLUS more!! It has been on many trips now and I will be purchasing another one in a new pattern so I can have them for different seasons. Thank you VB!! With this tote and your Turn Lock Wallet, I can be super organized AND stylish!

This is MY perfect bag
After carrying a Vera tote for years and raving to everyone I know about it, I decided to finally write a review on it. Although, I am sure this will get lost amoung the hundreds and hundreds of 5-star reviews already existing for this item, I thought I would also share my expereince. I am a 34 year old professional working in corporate america and see nothing but other professionals wearing all black suits carrying all black, mostly generic laptop or workbags daily at my office. I decided I needed some color and a friend recommended the Vera tote. I was skeptical, but I figured I could always use a tote bag for other uses if I didn't like it, so I went ahead with the purchase. Vera has become my perfect bag. Everyday, I carry my laptop and it's accessories, files, my lunch bag clutch holding my iphone, money, keys etc, water bottle and anything else I need that day. I adore all of the deep pockets. That is where I keep my laptop's charger and cords, pens, and it holds my 27oz Klean Kanteen water bottle perfectly (and the thick quilting that the pockets are made of keeps everything else dry when it "sweats". I load this bag up so much but it's incredibly light on it's own and couldn't be of higher quality. I now own 4 of these bags and use one as a diaper bag and the others whenever I need a purse on the weekends. I seriously couldn't recommend this any higher.

Needed a diaper bag that was functional...
I found it!!! As a momma of five kids, (three of them still small) I needed a diaper bag that would also function as a bag I could haul my things in for church. This one fits the bill. It has six pockets around the interior, so there is ample room for everything! It holds a lot but doesn't feel or look bulky. I am done shopping for the perfect bag!

Plenty of pockets
I am up to 4 of these now. I use them as a big purse. Love the fact that the inside is quilted and it has 6 interior large slip pockets. The exterior pockets are large as well. Purchased several V.B. purses before purchasing this one to use as a purse due to the large size. I was hesitant due to the toggle closure. Would like to see this bag with a zipper. It does gap open some on both sides of the toggle. This takes some time to adapt to. The depth of the bag will make up for it because the contents of your daily purse items are in the pockets and in the lower half of the bag. The bag is lightweight and will allow you ease with shopping with plenty of room to add some shopping purchases in on top of your purse items. The large laptop tote is very similar in style. Make this bag the size of the large laptop tote, keep all the inside pockets and quilting and add a zip top closure and Perfection accomplished for a large size daily purse.

The best tote ever!
This is one the the best totes ever. The Vera has inside pockets to organize small stuff and an outside one for those little items that you need quick access to; eg: lipstick, comb, credit card etc. The interior is big enough for my large study bible, several pocket folders and the study guide book. The only recommendation that I think would make the bag even better would be to add a top zipper for added security when traveling. I have more Vera totes than I am willing to admit because they are so versatile and I love, love, love to have my bag and my purse match. Never leave home without a Vera bag and a purse to match!

Really like this tote
I had been eyeing this bag in Watercolor's so one day I just bought it and haven't regreted it. I really love this tote. It holds all of my things for work. I put all of my school supplies, pens, dry erase board and markers, pencil box, sticky notes, notebooks, a clipboard and other things needed to help my students during the day. The best part is it keeps me pretty organized with all of the pockets. I just love the tote and the color is perfect.

Yet ANOTHER great review
As if the vera needs another great review but here it is I have one in Marina Paisley and I love it. Today I had a lot going on as I had classes and then had to run to the store and now get ready for sorority stuff, this bag has carried me well through the day with craft supplies (its big/little week), a 13 in macbook pro and school necessities! Its been awesome to have one bag especially since I was considering my hipster and a market tote no need for that one bag did the trick and I am so glad it was my beautiful Vera Tote GAH it was fantastic and my day isn't over
