A must have!!!
I absolutely LOVE this bag!!! The miller bag is my favorite Vera Bradley bag and I hope to God that they don't discontinue this bag… ever!!!
I'm a mom of two - 3 yr old & 5 month old - and this bag is a lifesaver. I've tried a few traditional diaper bags and they do not even come close to being functional not to mention beautiful as the miller. The miller is very lightweight, beautifully designed (zips close completely to secure all the items), machine washable & has tons of room. It features 6 pockets inside the bag & a pocket outside which allows me to stay organized. I have many miller bags to use as - a diaper bag, an overnight bag (for my 3 yr old to sleep over at grandparents'), a travel bag for makeups, toiletries & more & a beach bag.
Just as a reference, when I use the miller as a diaper bag for my 5 month old, I can fit - 10 size 3 diapers, a mini wipey case, 3 burp cloths, 7 bibs, VB large cosmetic bag which I fit three 8 oz bottles, thermos & three mini containers to hold formula, 4-5 different toys from a stuffed animal to a sophie, 2 pacifiers, VB changing pad, 3 onesies, a swaddle blanket, mini bottles of lotion, hand sanitizer, sunscreen & chapstick - and I can zip it close with some room left over!!! AMAZING. And just as a side note, this beautiful bag makes packing up for the baby or to travel a bit less painful as my fellow moms will agree.
I just have to say, I LOVE this bag and hope it is not being retired nor was updated as a "Travel tote" which I own as well and like but doesn't quite compare to a miller. I'd really love to purchase the miller in the new gorgeous prints such as flower shower, blue bayou, clementine, african violet & pink swirls. Please make them in those prints!!!

Perfect travel bag
I bought the Miller bag way back when, in the night owls print. I recently reviewed the Villager mistakenly, with the Miller bag in mind. I recently ordered a Villager thinking it was the Miller bag, and when I received it, it was a lot smaller, more of a large handbag than a tote. The Miller bag is large and will hold everything and more! I have used it as my school bag when I was in nursing school, although loaded with textbooks does make it a bit heavy. The bag will easily accommodate a 17 inch laptop and charger cords.. The zip top is my favorite part,, because everything is more secure. I recently went on a weekend trip and chose the Vera bag instead of my usual Miller bag and although I love my Vera bag also, the toggle closure was not adequate when the plane hit some turbulence and my bag tipped over under the seat. Pens, and even my wristlet fell out of the bag I had to collect everything after the plane landed. There are quilted pockets inside the Miller Bag so items are well padded and protected. I have two other Miller bags on my wish list, and I am hoping they go on sale soon. Please don't ever discontinue this bag!

Great for picnics
I use this to cart our blankets, water bottles and other stuff on picnics. I love the security of the zipper and the large inside pockets for stashing sunscreen and bug spray. It's a really big bag, but since it weighs practically nothing it's easy to carry around. Used it last weekend for a parade and it was perfect. Would highly recommend one! I might consider a second for crochet projects - it could store a decent size blanket and yarn in a pinch.
