Great Mom w/toddler bag. Or Moms who cloth-diaper.
Okay, so... I don't use this as a school book bag, and I think it would have done better with a different name. Perhaps just saying in the description that a student *could* use it with a spiral notebook, pens/pencils, water bottle, snack, and a book or two, but no, obviously, it's too small to replace a whole backpack. :-p
That being said, I'm SO glad I didn't pass this by just because it said, "Campus Tote." I LOOOOVE this as my short-outing bag with my daughter or a purse for just me.
This bag can work for everyone, I think (in one way or another). I think it's the perfect broad spectrum bag. ;-)
LOVE that it has two large pockets on the inside because most VB just have lots of little ones, that aren't conducive to going on outings with a child (IMO). The pocket is big enough to accommodate a one-sized AIO cloth diaper, which is AWESOME. It can also fit a sippy cup or my huge wallet. ;-) Or you know... an accessory bag or small makeup bag or whatever. :-p
The outside pockets are the best of any bag I've had... They fit a 32oz Nalgene bottle! Seriously... how many bags can boast THAT? Not many. And that is a *necessity* for a bag of mine. :-)
To me, the Go Round Tote replaced the Pleated Tote, and this is a great alternative if you thought the Pleated Tote was too big and the pockets were too small (which are the exact reasons I sold mine).
So here's what I put in mine: AIO cloth diaper, small wet bag, small thing of wipes, snack for me, snack for daughter, 32oz Nalgene, sippy cup, VB medium cosmetic, large wallet (checkbook length), and I still have room left over. ;-)
Got it in Portobello Road, which I think is probably the most versatile print VB has come out with: goes with greys, blacks, *and* browns. PLUS has some color added in. I also think it would work all year round. Thank you, Vera Bradley! LOVE this bag! :-D

Great bag for the Moms who outgrew diaper bags!
I have this bag in Indigo Pop and I love it!!! The rolled handles are fantastic! This bag fits perfectly under your arm even when stuffed full! I can fit toys, extra clothes, my turn and lock wallet, and still have room! I really like how the magnetic closure ensures the bag keeps its shape at all times. The outside pockets are wonderful to throw your phone and keys in. I wasn't sure I would like this bag online until I saw it in person. As I said, the rolled handles are fantastic. I like how the handles stay put and don't bunch up or fall down like the other totes do. I am going to get a few more in different patterns!

So much more than I imagined
This is my every day purse. It's like a 3rd arm to me. I can fit everything I could possibly need in here. I can put a couple of books and snacks inside along with my iPad and cosmetic bag and much more. If I am shopping, I can put small bags inside as well. I can even put by thermal cup in the side pocket and it's very secure.
It's durable, pretty and I would be lost without it! ! !
