I absolutely love my Vera tote! I currently use it for work. It's big enough to carry my Vera Bradley cooler, my Vera Bradley agenda and a pair of shoes. I used to contantly misplace my desk key. Now, I keep my desk key on my Vera Bradley lanyard which conveniently clips to the pocket of my tote. The mulitiple pockets keep me organized. I constantly get compliments on my tote as it coordinates with my cooler and lanyard. It's everything I ever wanted in a tote and more!

Perfect Knitting Tote!
The Vera is the perfect bag for knitting supplies. It has lots of room and the inner pockets are great for needles and other small things you might need. I also love the length of the handles and the height of the bag. I definitely recommend it! My favorite Vera Bradley purchase :)

Excellent Totes for anything!
I bought this in "Symphony in Hues" in the beginning of my first semester of college. It is AMAZING! The days that I don't need to carry much to class, it fits everything including my laptop. I can literally take it anywhere from class to the gym. Super sturdy, and a must have product.

My favoraiate multi purpose bag!
I bought this to use as an extra camera bag since it has so many pockets. I can fit all my extra lenses in it and other camera things. While I use it for that a lot, I also use it for pretty much everything else. Took it to San Francisco for a day and hauled it everywhere with snacks, kids jackets, water bottles. It does get a little heavy at times when it's really loaded up with stuff, but that seems normal with any bag. I love all the pockets, they're really deep and you can fit a ton of stuff in them. It's an organized persons dream! The outside pockets are great for cell phones, chapstick, and those things you need quickly that you don't want to dig for. I'd say it's worth the price for all the different things you can use it for. We're moving to Seattle soon and I can see myself using it for daily outings when I have the kids with me, especially since we'll be walking everywhere!

Still Going After 8 Years!
My first Vera was a Vera in Piccadilly Plum from 2005. In the almost 8 years I have had this bag, it has been my purse, my +1 item on flights, my school bag, and my knitting bag. Endless pockets are an organized person's dream and plenty of space for whatever you might be carrying. Currently, mine has 5 balls of yarn, a pair of socks I am working on, an adult sweater in progress, a magazine, a book, and tons of knitting essentials, with room to spare. I cannot say enough about this bag. Although I don't anticipate it wearing out anytime soon, I will not hesitate to buy a replacement when it does!

Huge multipurpose bag!
I was gifted this bag a while ago and it's still awesome! I first used it as a purse and it was great. Then later for crafts like loom knitting and beading and once again awesome...especially with the pockets! Recently I've gotten into collecting 18 inch dolls and have been looking for a suitable carrier. I found my Vera bag in the closet and decided to give it a try. So I took my dolls legs and put one in each of the 2 smaller pockets on the inside. Close the bag and it holds the doll perfectly! You could even put another doll into the other 2 end pockets AND still have room inside the bag for doll accessories or still use it as a purse. Perfect for traveling with dolls! Thinking about getting another!

My favorite bag!
My favorite Vera purchase. I bought this bag in Tea Garden to use as a laptop bag. It fits my 13inch Macbook Air in a sleeve perfectly, with plenty of room left for all my other school and work needs. The bag also has 6 DEEP pockets on the inside, which is perfect for organizing all the little things. I prefer smaller bags in general, so I only use this bag for my laptop or on weekend trips (it can fit a lot), but when I do get to carry it, I love it. If you're looking for a bigger bag (and it is pretty big), this is the perfect bag.

Cutest gym bag EVER!!
I got my Vera in Paisley meets Plaid and I used for when I was traveling for work at first. I would be able to keep my folders, stethescope, and any other "necessities" that I would need for the day. However, I recently started using it for a gym bag once I got my Laptop Case. I LOVE this for my gym bag!! It's so functional, breathable and not to mention adoreable!! I can put my workout shoes, flip flops, my work out clothes and my lunch box in there and still have room to spare. I have gotten so many compliments on my tote that I see people going out and getting one too!!

My First Vera
The Vera Bag was my first Vera, I bought one for myself in the Versailles pattern for my birthday. I LOVE it so much it fits a lot in the pockets. I am a teacher so I need it for school supplies, folders and books. I can fit my laptop and put the cords in one of the pockets, I am able to put my Versailles cooler, small cosmetic case, id holder, pen, a change of clothes and shoes. I just wish it had a top zipper, I traveled on a plane and was concerned about my things falling out. Overall this a great bag and I look forward to purchasing more :)

Nearly perfect tote
I love my Vera tote. It holds so much: books, notebooks, journals, cosmetic bags, glasses, snacks, wallet, even my 14.5" laptop, in it's own slipcase. I love all the pockets, inside and out. The only two things that would make this tote THE perfect tote is a zipper closure instead of the toggle and a removeable covered bottom like in the miller bag. I needed to wash my vera, have had it over a year, and getting the hard cardboard bottom out of and back into the slip took nearly forever and almost made me say some 4 letter words! LOL! I'm giving it 5 stars here anyhow... I'd give it 4.5 if I could. In spite of all that... I'm considering purchasing another in a new fave print! :)
