Bring Back Original Saddle Up
I too love the original Saddle Up. It' spacious without looking oversized. It hangs well and the ring and magnetic clasp make you feel that your items are very secure. I wanted to purchase another one for my mom who has Parkinsons. It's difficult for her to use zippers. The original Saddle Up would be perfect. Now it's only available in limited colors. I would love to get her this bag in one of the newer colors. Please bring back the original Saddle Up. You will be making a lot of customers very happy.

Old version much prettier than the newer version
I just bought this older version of the Saddle Up over the newer version. It is bigger and the bottom stretches out more. The pleats on the older version are so cute as well as the silver round ring. I had a choice between the two and compared both side to side at the outlet store and this one is by far better looking. I am overweight and this looks really good on me crossbody. Not sure why you changed this look. Anyways --love my new purse for the summer. I got it in Lemon Parfait and the matching Turnlock Wallet. I LOVE VERA BRADLEY.

Older Is Better
As have other Vera shoppers, I too beg you to bring back the original Saddle Up bag. Please don't fix what is not broken. I have at least 5 of the original design and I refuse to purchase the new design. I wil have to look elsewhere for a new bag to love.

PLEASE BRING ORIGINAL SADDLE BACK!
I love my original saddle.. Love the silver ring, pleats, contour and all. The new one looks cheap in contrast. No magnet issues with the original. Please bring this one back in the new patterns! I have a couple other cross body bags, but this is my favorite and I would love to have more.

THE ORIGINAL SADDLE BAG IS THE BEST!!!
I've worn out my saddle bag and want to replace it with another one. I LOVE the rounded bottom of the original style and cannot buy the redesigned saddle up for that reason. The squared off bottom just doesn't fall sleek to your body and just doesn't look that good when you wear it cross body. Please bring this feature back!!!!! I don't have to have the weighted metal ring, or the pin tucks, but I absolutely am looking for the rounded cut. I miss you already.

Vera, PLEASE bring back the original Saddle Up!!!!
The original Vera Bradley Saddle Up bag is everything I had searched for in a purse, comfortable to carry, looks good while holding lots or a little, the beautiful silver ring, the pleats, the curves, the pockets!! It was JUST right! Please don't make us say goodbye to this wonderful, versatile, original Vera Bradley Saddle Up bag!!! I was so sad to see the new version online, but thought I would give it a chance in person. Still of the same mind....please bring back our original Saddle Up!!

BRING THIS BAG BACK!!!!!!!!!!!
I have this bag in the Lime's Up. I love this bag. It is stylish & has "extra style w/front tucked detailing" & the ring. The new verison is not as classy looking. This bag is so versitile. I really hope you bring this back in the new colors.

Not the best
This wasn't the best I got it and it didn't fit my computer that well and it didn't hold a lot of stuff it is horrible for a person like me that is on the go all the time I take a lot of stuff with me and this can't hold it all

Better bag than the remodeled version
I was upset about the floating magnet in the new version. so bought one of the old, b/c of all the great reviews. I was surprized it even has a magnet, there seemingly being no problem with it on this bag. So far I love it, but I DO miss the outside zipper pocket from the new version.

DON'T CHANGE THIS BAG
Have 5 off these in several years of colors. Bought the new version & returned it. Different size different style. I am a true Vera Bradley fan with 18 in my closet & my daughter & daughter-in- law are the same. Please listen to your customers & bring this back !
