A lot of space in a smaller bag!!
Let me start by saying that I'm a large purse kinda gal. I have been carrying my beloved pleated tote for a long time, but when it was discontinued, I was at a loss for a good bag to carry that had pockets and a zip closure. I first noticed the mailbag in a store, but dismissed it because I thought it was too small for me. Recently I decided to give the mailbag a try. I love it!! The top zip closure keeps my wallet and important things safe, while the pockets under the magnetic flap allow plenty of room for lotions, hand sanitizer, and pretty much anything that I had been carrying in my pleated tote. I carry the change purse and the small cosmetic in those pockets too, and it is also nice to have the zip pocket on the back. While it can be used as a crossbody bag, the strap can also be shortened to carry on your shoulder, which is what I prefer. Over all, I would recommend this bag to anyone wanting to be able to carry many things in a small space and that have been using a larger bag in the past. It provides a nice change also for those of us who feel like they've been in the large purse rut for a long time. It is my new favorite Vera Bradley bag!!

Perfect Bag for my New IPad
This bag is perfect for my IPad, it fits perfectly in the larger slip pocket under the front flap. The main zip top pocket is spacious and deep and keeps my brush and calendar (5x7 Notebook) standing up perfectly for easy access. I keep my smaller things like, lip gloss, checkbook, and mini personal calendar in the smaller pockets of the main compartment which keeps things perfectly organized so I have quick easy access to everything. One BIG suggestion, this purse holds so much (love that about it), that it gets pretty heavy...so a padded strap would make things so much better, especially if you take the bag everywhere and never take it off, as I do. I have to keep my IPad with me at all times for work.

Best bag I have had
I have had the hipster and liked it a lot. I found that I needed more space for everything that I need to carry for work. I work with adults with mental disabilities and have to carry their checkbooks when we go out so I needed more space. I also have diabetes and have to carry around a lot of stuff for that. So I needed something bigger than the hipster. The mailbag may not look very big but it has so much space I am able to carry everything that I need for work and all my diabetes stuff. There is even space for me to carry my Kindle Fire HD. There is also room for chargers and whatever else you may need. I just love how much there is in this compact bag.
