On the Go
I have FOUR! (4)
I have several Vera Bradley pieces, but only one of each - except this handbag! It is far and away the most beautiful, usable, lightweight handbag I've ever used. I carry it both cross-body and on shoulder,
The outside pockets are just the right size: favorite lipsticks in one, cell phone in the other. The interior carries everything I NEED. And it washes like a dream - always remembering to remove the hard bottom before washing: experience talking here!

Great mid-size purse!
I've been using my On The Go bag (in Blue Bayou) for several months now, and it is about perfect for me! Not too big - and depending on what you carry - not too heavy. Strong and adjustable double-strap for carrying on my shoulder.
LOVE the outside pockets, but other posters are correct: the side pockets could be a bit larger. The problem is they are more narrow at the top opening than at the bottom, so little things 'sink' and are difficult to retrieve. I can't get my fingers deep in there while wearing the bag, so I have to take it off my shoulder to 'fish' - makes those 2 end pockets less handy.
(I measured: 2.5" at top opening, 3.5" across the bottom) I use one side pocket Only for my lip balm and car's valet key. The other one only has a tissue and cough drop. Other items ("big" keys) fit in the larger outside pocket. I would like to have the one inside zip pocket be divided (2 pouches - and not zip) instead of one, but having the 3 pouches on the other side is very helpful to keep small items organized. Overall, Vera's best design!

On The Go
This is my favorite Vera Bradley bag and the only one I purchase now. The only thing I would do to change it is to make pockets on both insides. I love the shoulder bag with just one strap, and a place to put my sun glasses on the outside. Until I got a new phone, my previous one fit in the other pocket.
