Great for middle school
I bought this for my daughter last August and it still looks great. She carries it to school every day. It fits two two inch binders, a book and a pencil box -- she uses a medium cosmetic case as a pencil box. Even though the backpack was expensive, it is worth the price. It is very sturdy, has nicely padded straps, is very well made and looks awesome.

Best backpack hands down :)
I received this backpack in Va Va Bloom for my last birthday and I am so glad that I begged my parents to get it for me!!! ;) This backpack is the perfect bag for middle schoolers, high schoolers, or even college students!! I can fit the following inside: a 1-2 inch binder, two textbooks, (or one textbook the size of two, and yes, there are textbooks that size), my Vera Bradley Brush and Pencil bag, a book to read, a folder, and a spiral. Even with all of this inside I STILL have a good amount of room left over!! Thank you Vera Bradley for making such an amazing product. I would recommend this to anyone! I think I even inspired my younger sister to save up for one herself!! This is definitely the best backpack I've owned, hands down.

This backpack is FANTABULOUS!
I love this backpack, I am in the 6th grade and it works great! My mom was concerned about the price and if it was worth, it but It totally was! I can fit text books, notebooks, a lunch box, a pencil case and more.The cute patterns give a funky pop in a swarm of boring backpacks!

Nice bag but not made well.
My mother bought this bag for my daughter for Christmas. Within 2 months the handle tore from the seams. She can't hang the bag in her locker at school. Very disappointed with the quality of this bag-- especially for the price!

I have purchased many VB products and have always been satisfied. It took a while to decide to spend the money on this backpack since it is kind of pricey, but I did it. At first I really liked the bag, it is very roomy, I would suggest at least one zipped compartment inside the bag. But my biggest complaint is that the handle on the top already broke and it unzips by itself when I'm wearing it! I am an adult college student, so it's not like I am tough on my stuff, but I used the handle on the top all the time and it broke pretty quickly. A few times while walking on campus the bag just unzipped, I guess because it was heavy, I did have my laptop in there those days. But still, it should be able to hold up. I have to be sure the zippers are all the way down at the side to make sure it doesn't unzip because I am afraid I could lose something and not realize it. I hate to give bad reviews for anything, but I also hate to see someone spend a lot of money on something that should be of better quality.

Great "all-the-time" Backpack...
I love this backpack! I bought it to use for every day type things, as well as a travel type bag (carry-on and use on vacation) and although I have not actually used it on my vacation yet, with just the few things I have used it for already, I know it is going to be perfect for the travel part! It is HUGE inside, additionally, the inside pockets of the main compartment are so useful and help keep you organized with anything you need to get at right away! And...the front zip pocket with the additional inside pockets are great too! I am planning to use the front pocket along with my carry-it-all wristlet as my purse for the trip too! I can't wait to strut around Disney with my very cool "Go Wild" Campus Backpack - it is going to be awesome!!! Again...thank you Vera for making a bag that fits ALL my needs and is not just designed for one specific thing!

Spacious backpack for college students
As a college student my classes are pretty far away from my dorm so I have to carry around all my textbooks and notebooks all day. I bought this backpack in Ribbons and I am very satisfied with it!
I keep my ID in the designated compartment and my agenda in the front pocket (for easy access). I am very glad that the side pocket can hold my water bottle nice and snug!
VERY SPACIOUS main compartment that can hold my Organic Chemistry textbook, 2 notebooks (and there's still space left!).
However, I had to take the cardboard found at the bottom of the backpack out since it stopped being so sturdy.
Overall, very happy with this purchase! Definitely an alternative for college students looking for something more spacious than the Laptop Backpack.

Great for School!
I recently bought this in Paisley Meets Plaid and I have been using it for almost 2 years. I HIGHLY recommend it, it's big enough to hold 2 textbooks, and 2 2'' inch binders and my laptop. Plus it's very pretty I really love it
