Vera saved my commute
I started a new job at the beginning of the year and had to start going downtown. This meant parking in a garage and walking to my office. When I started, I was given a backpack bag by my employer to carry all my work related items. At first this seemed great as I like backpacks and they are easier on your back. But I learned that with the in and out of elevators, going through a revolving door to my office, and the security turnstiles that the backpack was more trouble than it was worth. I needed a bag large enough to carry all my essentials, but one that was no so big it would be a challenge for all the above mentioned commute pains. I found the VERA in my local store and LOVED the Flower Shower pattern. This bag can comfortably hold my padfolio, iPad, laptop, and kindle (for lunch reading) in the main compartment. In the various slips I have my laptop cords, my kindle and iPad cords, pens, pencils, highlighters, Tide to-go stick, lotion and antibacterial gel with room to spare. In the front slip I have my badge and parking garage pass. I have yet to use the outer zip because I still have room on the inside. I even have enough room for the days I play sand volleyball after work to fit my change of clothes inside the bag. This thing is amazing. It is so great that I have even started just grabbing my small zip around wallet and phone out of my purse and adding it to the bag so I don't take my purse with me. Excellent bag for downtown commuting.

This is it. It has all the pockets I need
I have lots of Vera Bradley purses, bags and luggage. I love them all. I travel a lot living in a town 60 miles from everywhere. This is the bag. The bag that is sturdy, not too big and has lots of pockets. Most of all its sturdy.
One of my favorite bags of late is Tote as a purse and in haste ordered this bag in error. I was so upset but the outcome was great. I sell Scentsy and make my deliveries from this bag. Sturdy...LOVE IT!!!
It would be such a help Vera Bradley persons to have a comparison with each size bag or anything that you sell. Have a normal size woman with it on her arm or shoulder. With sales going to the web I would think it would be worth your while and time.

Fits my Lenovo Z560 15.6" laptop and then some!
It fits my laptop when turned on its side, to my delight. I bought this tote for work and travel to use as a feminine alternative to my canvas backpack. The pattern - I bought baroque and I love the lime accents. The padding - I like the softness and padded straps. Perfect structure - it holds everything I need without feeling like a turtle. It will hold the computer and cords + a binder. I am addicted to this pattern for some reason. I have never bought Vera before and I have purchased the mini cooler and on the go to go with it. :) The mini cooler fits pefectly in the bottom with the dimensions of the bag. Get it! You will not be disappointed. :)
