College Girl's Best Friend
I purchased this bag in Priscilla Pink and she's a beauty. I also own the Campus Backpack in the same print but, I only use it on the days I don't have a lot to carry. The Miller Bag is great if you have a consecutive class schedule. I use it when I don't have time to walk back to my apartment and don't have any breaks. In here I have my Lunch Break, calculator, two standard size textbooks, spirals,agenda, light jacket, VB pencil case, and VB Carry It All wristlet, and iPad with some room left to spare. It's so comfortable on your arm and has a strong, sturdy and flat base :). Great for trips to the library during finals week. Thanks VB!

One of VB's most versatile bags
This is one of my favorite styles of VB bags. I bought my first one in Nantucket Red about 7 or 8 years ago. I love it so much I've gifted it to my mom and sister-in-law several years ago as well. I have used this bag as a beach bag, a diaper bag, a locker room bag at the hospital and the gym. The key word on this bag is POCKETS - there are a ton of them inside this bag! The zipper on the top is great for filling this thing to the brim and keeping it all secure. I agree with the previous review that you need the Miller and the large duffel, and I also agree that the one little outside pocket could maybe use a zipper as well.

Best Vera Bradley Bag!!
The Miller Bag is my favorite Vera Bradley item! I have a few other bags, including the Vera Tote...which was my favorite until I received the Miller! What I love about it, is that it zips completely shut, so I don't have to worry about items falling out and I can also use it as a carry-on. It has numerous pockets inside which is wonderful when traveling with kids. I keep markers, coloring books, cell phones, etc... in all of the pockets. I am also able to fit the new Vera Stay Cooler inside of the bag, and it still has some room on the sides of the bag, which I love so I'm not trying to carry both items. I hope Vera never discontinues this item.

First VB bag!!
I got this in Tea Gardens to use as my baby bag. It ft everything I needed for my daughter and was roomy enough to not need a separate purse!! I wash my VB bags when I'm not using them and store them in space bags for my daughter to use when she's older!! Timeless and beautifully made. I recommend to everybody.

Awesome Diaper Bag!!!
I am a new mom and had bought a "regular" diaper bag before my son was born. Now he is almost 7 months old and I wanted a better diaper bag than what I had. I needed something with more room and a longer shoulder strap. After reading reviews on different Vera totes and their diaper bags I decided on the Miller in Very Berry Paisley. This bag is phenomenal!!! I love all of the interior pockets on top of the main compartment. I can fit everything that I need for my little one and then some. All of the 6 interior pockets keep all of the little stuff organized and then the bigger stuff fits in the main compartment. I am able to keep an extra set of clothes and a light sweatshirt for him, his changing pad, 6 diapers, a regular size pack of wipes, burp cloths, bibs and a light blanket in the main compartment with plenty of room to spare. I can even fit my purse (also VB, the Claire) in the main compartment! All the side pockets have a lot of little things and do not take away from the space in the main compartment. The zipper on this is a very heavy duty zipper and the straps are perfect! I hate when a bag is up under my arm and the length of these straps are perfect. Plus when I no longer need a diaper bag, this will work great for weekend trips or overnight stays! I will definitely be buying more VB in the future!!!

the Miller Bag, or the Large Duffel Bag ....
I have both the Miller Bag and the Large Duffel - depends on what needs to be packed, you can go either way. The great thing about the Miller bag is that the zipper goes all the way, so you have no problem putting in or taking out anything, and you can see the entire inside very clearly. I once fit a short winter coat and a pair of boots in this Miller Bag. On the other hand, the Large Duffel does have more cb. ft, and the shape allows you to pack large square items or piles in it - the Miller won't. But the Large Duffel has a terrible zipper - it doesn't come down on the sides, so it is difficult to dig things out or to put a neat pile of items in there. I guess you will just have to get both ....

Best Travel Bag
I bought the miller bag in plum crazy just a couple of days ago. I have already love this bag so much. First of all, the pattern plum crazy, is like one of the cutest patterns ever! I have gotten so many compliments on how cute this is. I was looking 4 a travel bag (I'm 13) because I go on tons of mini road trips. This was by far the best bc unlike the duffels, it holds its shape really well and has a baseboard. I would highly recommend this, another great vera bradley product!

The Perfect Bag!
I have 4 Miller bags in Mod Floral Blue, Simply Violet, Safari Sunset and Very Berry Paisley - a color for each season! In the summer, the Miller is the perfect beach bag. It holds 2 large towels, hat, books, bottles of water, sunscreen, cell phone, wallet, snack bag, cosmetic bag, sunglasses and a few t-shirts. The Miller is a great weekend bag as it holds clothes, cosmetics, shoes, my laptop and everything I need for a few days away from home. It's the bag I use when I am traveling with crafting supplies. The deep interior quilted pockets keep my supplies separate and organized. The Miller is a tall bag so whatever I put in there I can zip it closed and don't have to worry about anything falling out in transit. The bag has long, sturdy straps that make it easy to carry. I l fell in love with the Miller about 5 years ago. It is my favorite Vera bag and it has never let me down!

Baggage Check Saver
For my3-4 week trips, I confine luggage to a carry-on and use the Miller bag as my personal item. I love the pockets to organize small items and stuff in my camera and hipster purse. I can still shove the thing under the seat. The Grand Traveler and Weekender will not fit under the seats of the smaller "puddle-jumpers" but I can count on my Miller bag.
VERA BRADLEY NOTE: A couple improvements: I would like a sleeve added to the back and a zippered outside compartment for easy access to medications, etc. I don't trust the existing pocket...things have fallen out of it.

So Versatile!! Love, Love Love!!!
I have this Miller bag in Blue lagoon and it's simply perfect. I can be used for so many things! I use mine for school and it houses everything I need plus a little more. The 6 inner slip pockets are amazing, roomy and ensure that everything has a place. I plan on buying another for a weekend bag for the Lake. You can't go wrong with the Miller ladies!!
