My least favorite Vera bag ever
This is probably my tenth Vera bag. The others have lasted forever, the colors still look vibrant, and I've never had a complaint. This purse is a disaster. The straps aren't thick enough to stay on. The buckle on the strap (that adjusts the length of the strap) slips and slides, making the straps all wrong. The little piece of fabric that covers one of the drawstrings has already come off (after one month of use), and I can't stand the bag. It frustrates me to carry it, and I'm switching out purses today. Garage sale item!

just got it
I love this bag I got it in buttercup but the strings are already getting loose. I use my bag for school so I am rough on them. This is my first vera bag I have a kindle case in English rose. I love this bag but wish the strings were sewn so they do not come undone. Also there a few strings coming loose on the pockets. Overall I love it but a few things could be improved

Love This Crossbody
I love the Quick Draw and am so sad that it has been discontinued. I have several patterns and wish it was available in newer patterns. It holds a lot of items without feeling bulky. The adjustable strap can be extended very long to fit comfortably as a crossbody over a winter coat. The magnetic front pockets secure my iPhone and other necessities. I absolutely LOVE the cargo-look of this bag and get a lot of compliments on it. It has silver rings on each side of the strap plus smaller silver rings around the perimeter that gives it the rich look of a much more expensive bag. Inside there are plenty of pockets as I have come to expect from Vera Bradley. I carry the euro wallet, tech case, small trio cosmetic bag with room for my sunglasses and other extras. It never feels overfull. I have never experienced a problem with the knots coming undone like some of the other reviews. This to me is the perfect crossbody. Please bring it back!

I really like this bag. It is sturdy and made out of great quality. I saw the bag in person at my local steinmart and they do sell Vera Bradley products there. The base of the bag is a little bit on the narrow side though. I love the front pockets, very convienent. Holds my Ipad If I really need it too. The only thing that is a little awkward for me is the length considering I'm only 5'0. It's feels a little bit overwhelming on my body but thats my problem, not Vera Bradley's I really like that you can adjust the strap and make it to how you want it. It's cant hold everything in the world, but it is a very decent size for going shopping, small gym bag, day out, ect.

Great for Summer Jaunts
I bought the Quick Draw after a friend of mine pointed it out on the site. At first, I wasn't to sure about th drawstring closure (I'm a zipper girl through and through) but I kept coming back to it. I watched Liz On Location's video on it, and fell in love with the look of it in English Meadows. When I received it, the first thing I noticed was how sturdy the actual bag is, as well as the straps. The cargo pockets on the front are, in my opinion, the perfect size. They don't overwhelm the bag and add just the right touch of ruggedness to it with the buckles. I can fit my phone in one and small mirror in one, and lip balm and keys in the other. The drawstring closure is very secure and doesn't open, keeping your things safe inside. One of the knots at the end of the drawstring DID come undone, but it was no big deal. I just retied it, and it looks fine. Neither has come undone since.
Inside the bag has 3 slip pockets and one zipper pocket. Two of the slip pockets are narrow but somewhat deep, perfect for creams, cell phones, small glasses case. The third is on top, sewn in front of the zipper pocket and is quite small, probable good for loose cards and othe flat objects. The zipper is perfect for holding lady things discreetly.
I used this bag all summer long and loved the look and the ease of it and the style. It did get a bit heavy when I pack to to much, at one point it held, a medium non VB cosmetic case with diapers in it, a small non VB cosmetic case with make up in it, a case of wipes, my sunglasses, my VB wallet (the small snap one), and even my iPad! It CAN hold an iPad, but very snugly. I have also used it for a change of clothes for the beach, and can carry a lot. It can look bulky because of the drawstring, but unless you plan to always have TON of stuff with you, it's not a big deal. I usually only carried two/three diapers, a small wipes case, my wallet, mirror, hand sanitizer, cell, water bottle, a small toy for my baby and book for me. And it all fit with room to spare!
Perfect run around bag for the summer time!

Great size...but issues with knots on drawstring
I love the size of this purse and I love that the strap is long enough to wear as a crossbody. My only issue has been the knots on the drawstring. They came undone within a month of owning the bag and I am constantly having to restring it to keep the bag closed. I wouldn't buy this style again.

Nice for little trips
I enjoy this bag a lot for small weekend trips but not my favorite bag, the base doesn't seem as sturdy as the Vera Bag!!!! Plus the drawstring is a little annoying i like zip of the close on the Vera Bag (toddle or something) It can hold a decent amount of things here is what i can fit in it:
A small jacket
All in One Wrist let
Turn lock wallet
That is about it for the drawstring to be able to completely close!
I will use this but will not have any intent on buying another one!

Love the color and size, pockets are smallish
I love this bag! I already have a Morgan (very roomy and big pockets), a Saddle Up (same), and 2 Lisa B's (nice big front pockets#... so I was disappointed in the size of the inside and outside slip pockets on this bag. The shape and color #I got it in Very Berry Paisley) are great and it's beautiful, soft and feminine... and I have had lots of compliments... but the inside slip and outside flap pockets could be bigger like in the other VB bags I have had. Otherwise, it's a great purse! Thanks!!
