Love the bag Hate the pattern
I have had my eye on getting something in English Rose for awhile now. I also really liked the newer version of the Saddle Up so when I saw it on sale I couldn't resist. It arrived today and to my dismay, I hate the pattern. Online the roses look very mauve but they are actually an orange sherbet and hot pink/fuchsia. They is also an ugly flower (not a rose) right smack in the middle of the front flap. Unsure of what to do.

I LOVE THIS BAG! I HAVE ALL COLORS - PLEASE BRING IT BACK.
EVERYTHING ABOUT IT SUITS ME TO A TEE! THE INSIDE POCKETS ARE GREAT; THE OUTSIDE ONES ARE JUST WHAT I NEED!

I love this new version of Saddle Up. They old one did not feel secure to me. The new Saddle Up has a large zipper compartment on the outside. It is large enough to fit my wallet in which makes me feel very happy and safe! I can fit everything that I need in this purse. I have both the old version with the ring and this one with the zipper compartment on the outside side. I like the new version the best!

Love the new saddle up
The outlet nearby was having a huge sale and the saddle up was the feat sale item, of course I got there too late and missed out on all my fave patterns :( but I did get the new version saddle up in va va bloom and I LOVE it! It is so spacious and has so many convenient pockets underneath the flap and on the back of the bag. I like it soo much more than the classic hipster. this bag is perfect for places like the zoo and theme parks I highly recommend it!

Voting for Old Version w/ Ring
I was just looking to purchase another color since the one I have in white/black shows dirt constantly, but prefer the older version. I can't rave about the older version w/ ring enough. Can't believe this is being retired, as a mom of an infant, this purse is great to wear as a cross body and perfectly fits a diaper/wipe box and snacks inside without being too heavy and quickly accessible while not taking up a hand or a shoulder. Please rethink this decision, as this style is the perfect size without the bulk!

A Stitch In Time
I bought Saddle Up in Dogwood, and will start using it in the summer. Before using, based on prior reviews, I am going to put a single stitch on each side of the magnet in the flap. Hopefully that will prevent any problems in the future. I love the size and design of this purse, and while I shouldn't have to doctor it, it isn't a major hardship.

Please don't retire this item.
I would like to add my opinion about your decision to retire the Saddle Up purse. I would like whoever is in charge of this decision to rethink this
move. I was introduced to this style by a friend who has several different patterns of the purse. So I purchased one and can't tell you how much I like it. I bought one for my sister for Christmas and she also loves the style. Then to my dismay, I found it was being retired. I was at one of your Outlet Stores when I found out. So I acted defensively and bought three more of the same style. After getting home, I checked with my sister and she asked me to get her some. When I got back to the store, there were only two patterns left in stock. So I bought her those two and she is very happy. However, she, also, would like to see Saddle Up reinstated. Thanks for the opportunity to express my opinion.

LOVE this bag!
I have so many VB bags, but Saddle Up is my absolute favorite! The flap with the magnet closure is perfect - no trouble with zippers - it just does the job so I don't have to worry. Saddle Up carries lots of stuff and never looks bulky - last weekend, in addition to all my other items, I even carried binoculars in it. I have it in four colors and am stocking up on a couple more. If I could give it ten stars, I would!

Bring back Saddle Up
Please bring back this purse !! I cannot understand the logic here? Why do they get rid of a popular , versatile purse and keep some of the dated boring styles? I work in the health care field and see so many woman carry this bag. I prefer the original and have it in 4 patterns. I went to the Vera Bradley Outlet sale today and stocked up on a few more colors since it will be unavailable soon. Guess I won't need to buy any new Vera for awhile
