New version of the Saddle Up crossbody
First off, I love the old version of the saddle up bag with the ring on the flap. Please bring back the older version! That bag works so well in so many ways!
The new version: I do not like. The magnet doesn't work well and they aren't lined up right, so the top is poufed out when the magnet is attached. This leaves the bag open at the top and susceptible to things falling out. Plus the flap is either more lightweight or the ring made the flap sturdier. It is also a bit smaller and I cannot fit everything in it as easily as I could before. I don't like that the interior pockets were decreased from three pockets to two: with three pockets, things stayed in the pockets and now they fall out, all the time.
I have purchased a couple more of the old saddle up bags, even in patterns I don't care for, just so I can have a few more of the old versions. I won't buy more of this new version saddle up. And the one I have will probably go to Goodwill.

Too Wide for a cross body
Tried to see if I could wear the new saddle up, but found it to be wider than the original. Also do not like the squared off flap. Just makes it look more like a satchel instead of a handbag. It is also more squared off in the bottom in real life than what it looks like in the picture.
I love and have lots of Vera B products. But this redesign of my all time personal favorite just isn't doing it for me. Bring back the old design.

I miss the OLD VERSION!!!!
Please bring back the Saddle Up in the old version! I absolutely love the look of the bag with the pleats and ring. It looks much nicer than the newer version. I think the newer version looks cheaply made compared to the old version. Definitely not near as nice! I would love to have an old Saddle Up in the new spring pattern, Clementine! It would be absolutely perfect!
